Every now and then a wedding comes along that’s is utter perfection like this incredibly romantic garden wedding at the secluded Gidleigh Park hotel in Devon. The wedding took place on a sunny Thursday in June with Jessica getting ready in the bridal suite, which had a gorgeous backdrop of the venue’s stunning gardens.
Jessica has absolutely beautiful eyes, which we decided to make the centre of attention. To do this I prepped her eyelids using Elizabeth Arden Eye-Fix as this enables whatever eyeshadow I put over it to really pop! Then I used a mix of MAC shadows incorporating a rose gold shade with pink hues and steel grey to add definition. Finally we used a few wispy lashes to add a bit of oomph to her eyes.
For her face I used my spray-on Airbrush foundation because it lasts all day, looks luminous and feels weightless. Luckily Jessica is already blessed with killer cheekbones and so didn’t really need much contouring so I simply used a highlighter in Moonstone by BECCA and applied a pink blush to her cheeks, blending the colour out towards her hairline.
Her hair was swept up into a classic style with a delicate decorative hair band completing her look. The wedding party also looked glamorous too, with the bridesmaids choosing dark smoky eyes to compliment their stylish red fitted dresses.
I really do love my job so much, especially when I get to share special days such as this one.
After the wedding Jessica sent me a beautiful card which read:
Just a little note to say thank you and WOW! My bridal party looked so beautiful and elegantly made up, your talent really is incredible.
Thank you also for being such a calming presence on the day. I felt like a princess all day long and was very sad when the make-up had to come off!
Very best wishes.
