Real Bride Story- Hazel

I am delighted to be finally updating my blog today with this spectacular real wedding from June 2014.

This was my first wedding abroad and I really enjoyed every minute of it, there really is only one word to describe it:


Beautiful bride Hazel married her handsome groom David in the stunning surroundings of Cavtat, Dubrovnik in Croatia.


I was literally blown away by the beauty and scenery of this stunning location. The views were just outstanding.

Many times i had to make myself stop, breath and take in the absolute beauty that surrounded me.

It was a huge honour to have been asked to do Hazel’s make up for her special day in Croatia.

We chose a soft, romantic natural look for her make up, with soft rose gold and browns which really emphasised the eyes, pretty rose pink blush for her cheeks, and soft baby pink lipstick followed by gloss for her lips, the make up really enhanced and complimented her beautiful features.



Absolute Bridal perfection would be how I would best describe Hazel’s wedding day styling.

The dress was just breathtaking.


it was so appropriate and suitable for the heat and warm climate in Croatia.

It was designed by One of my favourite designers Jenny Packham,

whose designs are also worn regularly worn by

Kate Middleton.


The dress was like it had been made specifically for Hazel,

it fit her like a glove from day one with no need for any alternations.

Dress purchased in the highly recommended Smart Brides.

A lovely local hair stylist from Croatia did Hazel’s beautiful up style on the morning of the wedding.

The head piece was a bespoke, hand crafted piece designed by the amazing Amanda Caroline Couture.

As seen on Popular wedding website love my dress!

It was just beautiful, a perfect match for the dress.


Hazel’s two sisters joined her as bridesmaids for the wedding day.

They shone alongside the bride in beautiful light green dresses also by designer Jenny Packham.


A special mention also to fabulous mother of the bride Bridget who also looked radiant on the big day in a pale grey outfit which again complimented the bridesmaids dresses to perfection.

The pretty church wedding ceremony


After the wedding ceremony, the happy couple and all their guests were treated to a champagne drinks reception on this lovely boat, which cruised around the area. The views were astounding, it really was like a dream.



The happy couple then went for some pretty photos around the local area with their photographer.





I think you will all agree that these photos really are breathtaking, the beauty of the newly married couple,

the beauty of the area, the beauty of the scenery. Just perfect beauty.


I hope you enjoyed this real bride story blog post.

If a wedding abroad is something you are considering,

I would highly recommend this stunning location in Croatia for a wedding.

We really enjoyed our short stay here and will hopefully return again some day soon.
