Ethereal, dusty blue shoot.

Ethereal, dusty blue shoot.


Project Description

As you may remember, I had the honour of working with Jess Petrie photography and Alison Jenner hairstylist recently. Our shoot was featured on the prestigious Wedding Sparrow, (A wedding blog for the stylish fine art bride, Wedding Sparrow is an award winning inspirational website specialising in fine art weddings.) – www.weddingsparrow.com

Jess explained – “The main concept of this shoot was “less is more.” We wanted to replicate the bride being prepared for her Spring wedding at her boudoir. It’s a simplistic shoot that is enchanting, raw and emotive. At the start of the day/shoot the bride looks nervous and shy, but as time progresses you can see her confidence growing, she becomes playful and she is transformed into a beautiful bride, a shining star. Towards the end of the shoot she displays the magic and enchantment of a beautiful bride-to-be as she cries tears of joy as she visualizes seeing her love.

The buzzing sounds of glorious nature, the pink hues and the sweet smell of the magnolia flower, with the explosion of greys and blues in the sky, along with a creative team, all brought this romantic Spring bridal story together.

The bouquet was made from paper flowers and real branches, we wanted to focus on textures and colour palettes that complimented one-another, and that also helped to tell the story of a bride in Spring.”

I loved being part of this shoot. I played around with 3 make-up looks, ranging from very natural and pretty to a more dramatic, chic look.

For the look I have attached here I used the following –

MAC strobe cream, Bobbi Brown foundation stick. Brows – Maybelline Brow drama. Eyes – Tom Ford beauty Eye colour quad palette in Lilac dream. Chanel mascara in Blue Night. Liner – Bobbi Brown Cobalt Blue. Cheeks – Bobbi Brown Pot rouge in Fresh Melon. Highlighter – MAC strobe cream. Lips – Bobbi Brown lip pencil in Pale Pink and MAC dazzle glass. False lashes were from Chelsea Boutique in No 19.
