Quintessential English Elegant Blush Wedding

Friday, September 11, 2015

We teamed up with Whimsical Wonderland Wedding on this gorgeous bridal shoot.  With the theme focusing on soft pink and blush tones and luscious blooms set at Farleigh House, a spectacular mansion overlooking unspoiled Hampshire countryside.  With 10 acres of well manicured gardens and a beautiful boating lake the setting was perfect for this romantically styled shoot.  It shouts quintessential English elegance which we used to reflect through the hair and make up.  Keeping it fairly classic but soft and romantic with a couple of different looks, including long relaxed curls, down swept to one side and an elegant twisted updo paired with stunning statement sparkling headpieces.

We wanted to keep the Bridal make up natural and soft, looking at the overall palette of blush pinks, creams and greys, I went for the blush tones in a rose pink lip, blush cheek, and tonal blends on the eyeshadow whilst creating real emphasis on the eyes with dark liner and lots of layered individual lashes.  It worked wonderfully with the Bride’s classic pale english rose complexion.
