Shoot co-creator, My Wedding Fair favourite, and make up design extraordinaire, Frances Moore, MUA, takes us behind the scenes of this divine romantic shoot –
“Sam Alexander-Pearce (New Forest Studio) and I were longing to do another styled shoot together, especially after the amazing success of our previous ‘Luxe Botanical‘ photoshoot which we styled earlier in the year.
We knew instantly where we wanted the next shoot to be… Larmer Tree Gardens, located near Salisbury. We are both BIG fans of this incredibly, unique and versatile wedding venue. And the theme ‘Modern Romantic Bride’ just came to us whilst walking the space one morning. Colour was to play an important role in tying the look together. We decided from the start to go for the season’s hottest colour trends of peach, coral pink and mint green. Stephanie Lee our cake designer (Just As Delicious) and Judith Searles (Judith Searles Flowers) were both integral in working cooperatively to produce the colour body of the shoot.
Sam Walsh (Sass & Grace) was immediately called upon to provide the romantic wedding gowns and veil from her bridal boutique in Winchester. The two gowns shown are Lyn Ashworth ‘Adore Me’ which was super cute with an expertly tied bow on the back by Sam! And Annasul Y ‘2497B’ which has a gorgeous looped back.
Providing the hair and makeup was Jodi Smith (JMS Hair Design) and myself (Frances Moore MUA) we decided early on, on a very loose natural look for model Chloe Lancaster to help tie the modern & romantic elements of the theme together. Jodi kept Chloe’s golden hair beautifully layered with soft curls, complementing her hairstyle with using accessories provided by Victoria Fergusson and from Katy Howieson of What Katy Did Next fame. For the makeup I created a ‘peaches and cream’ look keeping the eyes in deep browns and ambers. I then used Bobbi Brown‘s lipstick in Guava to give it that coral peach feel.
So here are the results of that fab day! Enjoy x” – Frances Moore, MUA.
