Charlie and her wedding by the water at The Master Builder’s at Buckler’s Hard Hotel

Today is the wedding of Charlie and Andy at The Master Builder’s at Buckler’s Hard Hotel, located near Beaulieu in the New Forest.  I arrived this morning to a chilled out bride, who was very much excited about the day ahead!  The perfect way to enjoy your wedding day.  Charlie sat very calmly while I applied her wedding makeup look, just pausing to crack jokes now again about ‘cat fight club’… it’s a long story!!

I met Charlie not long ago for her bridal makeup trial and thoroughly enjoyed designing this pretty ‘soft focus’ makeup look for her.  She allowed me free reign to come up with something special for her, that tied in all her wedding elements such as her flowers, wedding gown and theme.  Charlie’s skin is in wonderful condition so I didn’t need to spend too much time correcting the complexion, allowing me extra time to perfect the eye design.  I really wanted to give an impression of a contour to the eyes, with an optical illusion of a softer finish.  Which I think has worked particularly well.

It was a joy to work with Charlie and her mum.  I wish her all the very best in her married life x
