Kitty and her local wedding at Elmers Court, Lymington…

What a perfect crisp, sunny day for a late summer wedding.  I’ve been looking forward to doing Kitty’s wedding makeup for ages as she’s possibly one of the nicest, warmest person I’ve ever met!  An absolute joy to work with, as her skin is so wonderfully clear.  Originally from Australia, Kitty was brought up with a routine of using sun screen everyday (as every child in Australia does) and boy has it played dividends in her complexion!  Kitty wanted a bridal design that was natural, yet completely photogenic – as most brides do.  So we came up with the idea of using soft browns, and highlighting (which Kitty loves)  I then used soft blusher in peaches, rather than pinks, and just added a little pink through the lips.

Kitty was over the moon with her bridal makeup, and yet it was still ‘her’ x

Hannah and her romantic tribute to a family tradition…

It’s hard to believe that this beauty got married two months ago, on a very drizzly September morning in the New Forest.  Hannah, ever the optimist, was not deterred by the weather and was determined to enjoy every minute of the wedding morning preparations.

I loved Hannah’s colour scheme for her late summer wedding – she had decided to go with a deep rich blue for her bridesmaids dresses, yet kept the flowers very pale blue with some gorgeous pastel shades all beautifully done by my favourite florist Jo Hicks Flowers.  As Hannah’s wedding dress was to be very delicate, with lace and a fitted bodice we decided upon a classic bridal makeup look – keeping it simple with soft browns and a neatly lined eye, with just a good coat of mascara rather than false eyelashes.  Hannah was then going to go onto Beaulieu Abbey Church, which is very significant to her as other family members have been married there in the past – making that romantic connection and tribute.

Hannah then went onto The Master Builder’s Hotel, where her elegant vintage theme was perfectly set out by the wedding team there.  All of this was beautifully captured by Mia Photography
