A Year of Weddings

Weddings have consumed me for the last year, more so than previous years. Its been a lot of work but I have enjoyed every wedding!

From the first email to the moment my brides walk down the aisle I have had the chance to get to know each and every one in such an intimate way that I can look back and feel the same excitement that we had on the day!

To celebrate the weddings and the experiences we have shared together I am posting each week, one wedding, where we were, what we did, what her makeup was! Starting from August 2013 to the end of this wedding season 2014.
First up is Faye! Faye got married in the start of August 2013.
 What a doll, she is! Faye flew in from Germany (but a true English Rose) for her wedding at South Farm in Royston. 
Faye had a real purple theme going on. 
We were able to play around with her makeup a bit and add a pop of purple in the liner.

The beautiful images below are by Jordana Marston  who has such a beautiful, unique style and way of capturing the feel of the day. The images really do give you the feel of what this magical day was like and just how beautiful this wedding, and of course, venue was like!

Faye's mother bought some lovely little beaded 'twigs' that I fashioned into a crown, piece by piece into the hair. You would have never know it wasn't a crown from the offset!
Faye looked beautiful and really rocked the whole country wedding... though if I remember correctly...she wanted her wedding to be at Barbican in London. (I think that got vetoed! haha)

 Faye's lovely American bridesmaids. 
 I loved creating these special, sleek, woven updos for the bridesmaids! They felt really special and were different from what I am usually asked to do for maids!
