Sophie and her garden wedding in the New Forest…

It was Sophie’s wedding yesterday, and I had the wonderful job of turning her into a naturally beautiful bride.

Sophie and her partner were going to have a traditional wedding in a nearby church, then were heading back to her parents house where they were going to celebrate in style in the garden!  Garden wedding receptions are becoming increasingly popular, especially in the New Forest where the weather is usually behaving and the scenery is always stunning.  I think couples also like the idea of a more relaxed feel, and the fact that they can decorate the outdoor venue however they like (parents permitting!)

Because of this relaxed feel, Sophie equally wanted her makeup to be non-fussy and to have a very natural feel to it.  I kept her base very plain and just used a little blusher in Rosie for Autograph English Rose Blush.  I also used a Rosie eye palette to create her vintage look eyes in Deco Diamonds, lightly lined the eye and finished the look with some false eyelashes in Eylure no.114  Sophie’s lip colour is a bespoke blend x
