Coral & Reg – Croatia.

In September Coral and Reg married at the beautiful Grand Villa Argentina Hotel in Croatia. 

Tori flew to Croatia to do Coral's bridal hair and makeup for her wedding day, the sticky humid weather presented a few challenges but thankfully Coral had chosen a loose and messy up do for her bridal hair  so it stayed beautifully in place all day.  For makeup we used a mattifying primer and waterproof powder and avoided any highlighters so Coral didn't appear shiny in any of the images. I used a waterproof setting spray to ensure even in the scorching sun her makeup wouldn't budge - I put a light SPF under the makeup to help protect her skin from the sun.  The black liner with a small flick and neutral eyeshadow Coral wears daily reminds us of one of our favourite celebrity bridal makeup inspiration women - Lauren Conrad.  Of course we grew up watching The Hills so are utterly obsessed.  .

We love these stunning images, the walled garden where Coral and Reg exchanged vows was just stunning.  We can't wait to head back to Dubrovnik for another destination wedding!

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]
