Real Bride story- Liz

I am very exited to share this very personalised pretty vintage inspired winter wedding with you all.


I was blown away when I saw some of the stunning photos from photographer Simon O Shea taken throughout the day of the wedding. He really managed to capture all the pretty detail s and the happy atmosphere of the couple & the guests.


Beautiful bride Liz knew exactly what she wanted make up wise for her wedding day.


A shot of the bride taking During make up application, I have my serious concentration face on again!

During her original make up consultation Liz gave me a vivid idea of her dress & style and ideas she had for her wedding day make up. I loved creating this pretty bridal look, We chose to go for a pretty, feminine & romantic look on the eyes with mixes of eye shadows in nudes, ivory & browns used on the eyes, followed by a soft pink blush & rosebud pink lipstick, this look worked perfectly with her over all wedding style & theme on the day. She looked absolutely flawless.




I absolutely adore this close up shot!

We were working in the beautiful surrounding s of the Newpark Hotel for the morning. I was in good company with Hair stylist the talented Elaine Murphy of the Edge Hair Studio assisted by Jade Scanlon. The girls created beautiful soft upstyles on the bridal party.


Finishing Touches to the beautiful bride, team work!!

I absolutely adored Liz’s dress, you all know me by now I love all things vintage! Liz had a beautiful bespoke wedding gown, it featured stunning bead & pearl detail on the top of the dress, the detail also continued down along the train of the dress, absolutely stunning. The bride chose a beautiful birdcage instead of a veil, and she also had a vintage fur to wear over her dress while she was outside, the look came together stunningly and was just perfect!



Liz had one bridesmaid and she work a stunning knee length 50’s style dress in a beautiful deep purple shade!

I have to share a photo of the glamorous mother of the bride! How beautiful & elegant is this lady!


I hope you enjoyed this real bride story! I love showing you all an insight into the fun & excitement we have working on the morning of a each wedding.

One last photo to share this one I took on my iphone after make up application.
