This was such a gorgeously opulent bridal hair shoot to work on…! I’ve always loved the 20’s inspired look, it’s so timeless. Having worked with Vicky from Floral Quarter before on hair and make up for a beach shoot ,she asked me to be involved in this one with Melissa Beattie Photography and I was so pleased she did! The brief was 20’s hair and make up with a contemporary twist. Melissa has a real talent for capturing the natural light in an image, so the hair makeup and dress looked stunning on beautiful model Alisha Cowie (from Tyne Tees Models) .Vicky’s flowers looked so striking against the soft whiteness of the dress and the deep red lip. All in all an amazing team of people to work with. You can see the images in full in SS17 Belle Bridal Magazine too! http://www.melissabeattie.com/contact/
This was such a dreamy bridal hair shoot to work on… It was for the brochure of Brinkburn Priory which is one of my favourite venues and the very talented photographer Katy Melling asked me to be involved. Her style of wedding photography is very soft and romantic so I wanted to capture the soft dreamy quality in the hair style. Helen from Bels Flowers supplied the gorgeous flowers and left me to play with some big summer blooms and greenery, so I was in my element! Make up by Jo was very natural and the overall finished look worked so well with the peachy tones and whites in Brinkburn. Check out more images from this shoot in Rock My Wedding Blog.
This was a bridal hair shoot for Lumley Castle’s advertising campaign in AW16 Belle Bridal Magazine. I was shown images of the styles they wanted me to recreate on two models. One was a classic hair up-do with a plait incorporated and the other hair style was soft and flowing. The team all worked together to create a beautiful modern classic look. Anna from Anna Lou Borrowed Blue asked me to get involved and style the hair for this shoot and Dani MUA to do make up, after we had worked well together as a team a little while before on another shoot. To see more gorgeous images all taken by Gasp Photography, see Belle Bridal mag AW16 also online.
Beautiful Northumberland Beach- on location
Well what can I say..? Who needs the Maldives..! This bridal shoot was different. It was a glorious sunny day, sandwiched between two pretty foggy days, so we had luck on our side to start, but Zoe Emilie Photography pulled it out of the bag with this location. My brief for hair and make up was ‘beachy waves and natural glow.’ Model Sophiah had gorgeous blonde Rapunzel locks but quite straight and fine so her hair was curled and pinned to hold on to the wave for as long as possible before we started shooting. Vicky from Floral Quarter supplied the lovely flowers and dressed the handmade driftwood arch with pretty bohemian style flowers, a table was set up on the rocks with blankets and glassware plus really lovely handwritten stationary by The Crafthood and Creative Calligraphy. lovely jewellery crafted by Dytham’s. Gorgeous Kathryn Russell gold lace dress and hair accessory gave me the opportunity to restyle Sophiah’s hair for a more avant garde look in juxtaposition to the natural surroundings. Loved the end result… To see more from this shoot click the link below for a fab wedding blog at Wonderful Whimsical Weddings http://whimsicalwonderlandweddings.com/luxe-bohemian-beach-wedding-ideas.html
The Plough at Alnwick
This bridal hair shoot was for a new wedding venue in Alnwick. The look we were going for was classically beautiful so I decided on a timeless structured up do which still looked soft and natural. The models hair was pinned up into a gently woven chignon which really complimented her neck line and looked gorgeous with the veil. The Make up was gorgeous by DANI MUA and Anna at Anna Lou Borrowed Blue decorated the room so prettily. Images by Paula Rosa Photography.
