“The team behind the shoot wanted to create inspiration for you that wasn’t focussed on the dress, and showed achievable make up looks as well as seriously gorgeous floral accessories.

One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.”


All of the make up products used are listed below and the blooms too – just incase you see any you’d love to include in your big day but don’t know the name. I’m terrible for this!! Apart from roses and peonies, I have no clue!”

As part of a collaboration between wedding vendors, we wanted to create three looks for brides to be inspired by. These beauty portraits focus on how make-up, hair and flowers and clothing other then a wedding dress, can help give a bride her unique look.”
