Back in April I was invited down to Devon with the wonderful Katrina Otter Wedding Planner and lovely Emma from Coco Wedding Venues.  Our location for the shoot was the stunning Pynes House – a recently refurbished classic house which created such a grand backdrop to our shoot.  The amazing owners of Pynes House put us up in the guest rooms the night before the shoot – I honestly think it was one of THE best beds I have ever slept in! Not only was it huge and packed with pillows I genuinely thought I might get lost in the bedding! I am not one to sleep particularly well when I am not at home by I slept like a baby! After a lovely breakfast we set to work on the shoot!  Kat and Emma are both amazing at what they do and incredibly creative although I have to admit when I saw the number of shots they hoped to take in a day I laughed, not a chance I thought! I was wrong – we shot it all and I think even some extras crept in! It was such an amazing shoot with an awesome team (details below).  It has been amazing to see this shoot featured in the pages of You and Your Wedding, Bloved and also on Style Me Pretty.

Jen and Sam – Chicago

Two weeks ago my commute to work was a little longer then normal – 22hrs to be exact although that was mostly because of some bad luck with the weather! Eventually my kit and I made it to Chicago Illinois, USA!  I arrived a few days before the wedding to acclimatise, get over the jet lag and make sure my kit made it all over safely – it did but I still made a trip to Macy’s anyway!

After settling into the city and treating myself to a few purchases it was time for the wedding day.  Sam and Jen married at Revolution Brewery in Chicago with all the bridal prep taking place at The Palmer House Hotel downtown.  It was a beautiful day to look out over the Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan as I got bride Jen, bridesmaid Ali and mom Tammy ready for the wedding.  Jen went for a relaxed up do to compliment her dress, makeup we kept natural with definition on the eyes to make them pop.  Ali too kept it natural with a loose up too – she still had the curls in two days later! Mom Tammy showed me a pintrest image of the makeup she liked titled ‘ridiculously sexy eye makeup’ and ridiculously sexy she did look!

Their photographer Linda Horton captured these amazing images – I love all the graffiti backgrounds – it really works for the chilled out, city wedding Sam and Jen had.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”40px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern” css_animation=””][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”655,650,651,652,653,647,645,646″ column_number=”2″ grayscale=”no” images_space=”gallery_without_space”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Nicki and Rob – Gaynes Park, Essex

Nicki and Robs wedding was my first trip to Gaynes Park in Essex and what a beautiful venue they had chosen! Nicki had created so much herself for the day and then passed on control to Rob who had the daunting task of setting it all up!  While the boys were busy putting the final personal touches to the venue the girls had a lovely and relaxed morning getting ready in a local B&B before moving to the cottage on site for final touch ups.  For the bridesmaids hair I created a big, loose fishtail plait which complemented Nicki’s loose, curly up do perfectly.  It was a beautiful sunny Monday in August and these beautiful photographs capture this perfectly.

Their amazing photographer was Julia from Julia and You.

Rosanna and Ben – Chippenham Park, Cambridgeshire

[vc_row row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern” css_animation=””][vc_column][vc_column_text]In June I was back at Chippenham Park in Ely, Cambridgeshire for Rosanna and Ben’s wedding day.  They managed to dodge the showers long enough to have the ceremony outside and even captured some stunning couples portraits under an umbrella, making the most of the Great British weather!

I love the bridal suite at Chippenham Park as it has so much space and light – perfect for getting ready in! As myself and my assistant Sam went about getting all of Rosanna’s bridal party ready we could see the preparations taking place outside.  We all took a particular interest when the sweet cart arrived!

Rosanna went for a stunning half up half down hairstyle which was really popular when I posted it on instagram earlier in the year.  For her makeup we kept it natural with nude shimmers on the eyes and plenty of liner and lashes.

She sent a lovely email after the day:

“Thank you very much for your time, patience and hard work before my wedding and on the day. You were a pleasure to have there with me and you really are so talented and creative. I felt beautiful and I’m so pleased I booked you!”

The photographers on the day were the amazing Howell Photography

Bloved Spring Style Guide – Wedding Inspiration

[vc_row row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern” css_animation=””][vc_column][vc_column_text]Earlier in the year I was invited by the lovely Louise at Bloved blog to work on the spring style guide she was putting together – she said about the shoot:

“I wanted to move away from the typical soft spring pastels to create a wedding style guide with punch, filled with geometric wedding inspiration and tribal details, and our team of incredible contributors brought it to life!”

I loved working on this shoot with all the suppliers involved but also because I got to work with another amazing makeup artist – Jo Adams!
