If you’re yet to pick up a copy of Belle Bridal’s fantastic 10th anniversary edition I’m about to show you what you’ve been missing out on. If you have flicked through those glossy pages, here you will find some extra insights from behind the scenes with shots I took during work and wondering around the phenomenal venue to share with you. You can catch more on the Belle Bridal blog here, but stick around to find out more about the make-up and for those BTS moments.
First up the final images you can find in the magazine by the incredibly talented Sean Elliott, who’s work speaks for itself!
Palais Namaskar is the epitome of a luxury hotel and an ideal destination for a location wedding. Nestled between the desert and mountaints of Palmeraie Marrakesh, this venue is breathtaking from morning to night, I could have wandered around for hours.
I kept this editorial super fresh with glowing skin and gentle highlighting of the models stunning features. I also did the hair, which I wanted to create a soft undone look with the hair by curling it and then letting it fall naturally. Here’s a closer look from the sidelines between and during shoots that I snapped.
A special thank you to Enayat Younes of Sisley Paris and REN Clean Skincare for sponsoring me with products for this editorial. REN are a regular here on my blog and in my work as an essential in taking care of the skin pre and post make-up to ensure it is the perfect base to create flawless looking skin. The Phyto range from Sisley was exactly what I needed, the Phyto-Touche Illusion d’Été is really light and soft wearing but easy to apply in a single swipe across the skin. This helped naturally illuminate Jolie’s skin giving it a smooth soft and sun kissed look. The Phyto Lip and Blush allowed easy and precise applications and easy quick touch ups with a very desirable velvety finish that were a total dream to work with.
