A couple of weeks ago I met a pure talented photographer called Brett Harkness. I was asked to create a look for his training course for a group of photographers who were learning the concept of Wedding Day Daylight and Flash Photography.
I wanted to share with you the two images that Brett himself took of the day including all the skills you need for this type of photography.
During the many years in this industry I have met numerous photographers and understand a small amount of the skill of photography. Believe it or not make-up can look so different on different types of camera...
I was contacted a couple of weeks ago by a new bridal make-up brand who have initially launched 5 lipstick shades in their collection.
Love, Honour and Be True was launched in early 2014 by two sisters Helen and Kitty.
Each year I can meet up to over 60 brides who are getting married in all different venues/locations/inspirational weddings and lipsticks are one of the critical choices for brides. A bride should always purchase a good lipstick for their 'big day' so they can re-touch their lips throughout the wedding day and keep their lips looking luscious. In my experience I usually...
A few weeks ago I had a phone call out the blue from Jen and Hils who were getting married in April 2014 at Middleton Lodge as they wanted to have their make-up applied on their wedding day. I had met Jen and her partner Hils the year prior at a wedding fayre at Middleton Lodge.
In April 2014 the law had changed for same sex couples and now they had the chance to change from civil ceremony wedding to actually getting married on their wedding day. I am not sure but I think Jen and Hils were the first same sex couple to get married in North Yorkshire on 9th April 2014.
Due to the time scale...

Spring is upon us...the snowdrops are popping out and the nights are getting lighter with a glimmer of sunshine on some days.
The shops are filling up with Spring/Summer clothes, magazine are full of the new looks to achieve for this season and plans to change your look and have a spring clean of make-up is perfect this time of year.
There are many key trends for Spring/Summer 2013 make-up but the main ones are strong lips and the colour pink. I wanted to use the inspiration from the catwalks of the key trends but wanted the make-up to be wearable for everyday use. I have...
Are you in the process of deciding whether to hire a professional make-up artist for your wedding day or if you should save some money and apply your own make-up.
When contemplating these thoughts, ask yourself the following questions
Do you know how to apply make-up to bring out your best features in order to get the best results on your wedding photography?
Do you know how much make-up to put on to show up on your wedding photos?
Do you know how to correct any flaws in the skin ie dark circles, redness without having layers upon layers of foundation and concealer...
1950’s make-up oozed sex appeal and today we associate words like glamour, style, class, fashion, beauty, romance, alluring, charm, movie stars from Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor all with their unique styles of make-up.
