A while ago now I was asked by a rather nervous bride if I would do her bridal makeup for her wedding day in July at Studland Bay House, Dorset – of course I was delighted to be asked and jumped at the chance to be involved in Charlotte’s big day. Charlotte, who is from London, wanted something very natural and flawless but like many brides didn’t know where to start! I talked Charlotte through her wedding style, theme and colours and then decided upon a look that would be flattening but not overpowering – in the end we decided upon a light smokey eye and pink/brown sparkly lips curtsey of Chanel lipstick in Boy. This look was to compliment Charlotte’s vintage touches such as her lace bodice and Jimmy Choo silver shoes.
For her wedding venue Charlotte had booked Studland Bay House in Dorset which is truly a hidden gem – with breath taking views over the Solent, acres of outdoor space for marquees and you can even hire it for a week, which is a real bonus especially if you have a large wedding party and want to spend some time together.
All of this was then masterfully captured by talented Wedding Photographer Mister Phill
