Laura and her New Forest wedding at Rhinefield House Hotel, Brockenhurst

Today I got the wonderful opportunity of doing the bridal makeup for Laura, at Rhinefield House Hotel in Brockenhurst.  And what a beautiful, warm sunny day for it – perfect for Laura’s outdoor wedding!

When I met Laura back in April she was a little nervous about having her makeup professionally applied, like many brides, as she doesn’t tend to wear a great deal of makeup day-to-day and didn’t want to real vulnerable and not like herself.  It’s a common feeling.  So we decided everything together – what shade of shadow to use, which mascara (Laura decided to use her own for a bit of comfort) and how much foundation and blusher to use.  Just these little things made a huge difference to how confident Laura felt in the end.

And that’s what I like to see.  A happy client x
