Here's a look inside the latest Belle Bridal Magazine for a modern monochromatic editorial to showcase Danish Label Lilly Bridal. Studio for the day was The Secret Tower, a historic gate tower built between 1265 & 1307 as part of Newcastle's city wall which now serves as a super stylish wedding venue.
Take a peek below to see a few close ups of the contemporary make-up I created for this brief.
For this Look I used:
Foundation & Concealer - Veil Cover Cream
Eyes - L'Oreal
Blusher & Lipstick - Suqqu

Today we're taking a sneak peak into the pages of Unveiled Magazine issue 11 for the Sakura Bloom fashion editorial by Kristos Kabiotis. I loved working on this chinoiserie inspired editorial with the setting of Lartington Hall providing the perfect backdrop to showcase the gorgeous 'Power of Love' collection of gowns by Caroline Castigliano.
In keeping with the brief I created a timeless chic look with flawless blended skin that complemented the elegance of the shoot. To create this I used Charlotte Tilbury's Exagger-Eyes eye shadow palette as well as their Pillow Talk lipstick and blushers,...

It's Christmas Eve and 2018 is soon coming to a close so I wanted to share with you a set of gorgeous images from one of my last bits of work this year.
However first I wanted to take a moment to reflect on how grateful I am for the work I have had the opportunity to be part of in the last 12 months. To have graced the pages of beautiful magazines such as Jules B, Belle Bridal, La Di Da and Unveiled. To have participated in workshops talks, demos in the UK sharing and doing work to support the wonderful charity the Teenage Cancer Trust. I have been so lucky to travel working fashion shows...
Last weekend I spent my time at Lartington Hall meeting brides. During this time one of the main requests I received from the brides is that they felt make-up needs to look flawless with delicate approach to colour.
I wanted to share with you some of the images of a look I created with this approach in mind and the products I used.
In keeping with the delicate colours of the flowers, décor and the venue I wanted to keep a peachy hue with the makeup but add a black eyeliner for a hint of drama. For the eyeliner it was kept quite thick and heavy as opposed to the obvious winged cat flick eyeliner...
It was a very proud moment for me to be on not one but two front covers of Belle Bridal Magazine.
For this photoshoot I used makeup by Sukin Skincare and Inika Organic

Lartington Hall is like one of those hidden gems in the beautiful area of Barnard Castle. You drive down a long dramatic driveway surrounded by trees and wow you arrive at the entrance with breathtaking amount of marble flooring and floor to ceiling mirrors. You curve round the corner of the hallway and are welcomed by subtle colours of French duck egg blue and the most exquisite furniture.
I have been sitting here trying to decide how to describe this wedding, the only words I can think of is “celebrity wedding oozing with style “
Kyleigh, the bride, was just breathtakingly beautiful...
Many months ago I was asked by Middleton Lodge to write guest blogs for them. What a proud moment for me as this is one of my all time favourite venue and place to visit for weddings.

A couple of times a year I get to work alongside talented photographer Brett Harkness who offers training courses throughout the United Kingdom and France to existing photographers who want to learn some new skills in the camera world.
One of the training courses is held at Middleton Lodge which for me is one of my Top 5 venues to visit and to get married…. it's a hidden gem in North Yorkshire.
Tracy Kidd photographer was on the course yesterday and I have had the pleasure of working with her on studio shoots over the last year. Tracy has such a good eye at capturing people and I just love...
