This one is a bit of an oldie but a goodie, throwing it back to 2018 at Saltmarshe Hall with major UK Bridal fashion houses Grace Phillips, Ian Stuart & House of Mooshki for the Belle Bridal Magazine editorial Love in Bloom. The concept behind it was to marry bridal and mother of the bride stylings with a strong 1950's vibe and a specific nod to the imitable Jackie O for the mother of the bride looks. The shoot brought classic clean styles with a touch of personality and sass together in an airy minimal setting. Meanwhilst flowery blooms brought a summery punch of colour alongside the statement...

I met Aileen for her pre-wedding make up trial a number of months before the actual...
