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.

Kyleigh, the bride, was just breathtakingly beautiful...

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.

If you are followers of my social media platforms you will notice that I talk a lot about Middleton Lodge and fondly call it my second home!!
For me, Middleton Lodge in North Yorkshire, is a magical home where you feel like Lord and Lady every time you drive up to the front of the Georgian House. It has an amazing presence about the place and truly feels “like home”. For weddings the building has the most impressive windows which, for me as a make-up artist, creates the perfect amount of natural light.
