  • Choosing your wedding photographer

    Guest post by David Walker Photography

    Choosing your wedding photographer has to be one of the more difficult decisions to make when planning your wedding. Just check the number of search results you get from a typical local search, for example for Essex wedding photographer there’s 541,000!

    With other suppliers such as the venue, the cake, the flowers etc. you pretty well know what you are going to get as you can see the exact products on offer. When choosing your wedding photographer however things are a little different.

    Photography is a very subjective thing, what tickles your pickle might not be the same for someone else and as you are paying for a service…

  • Boho plaited wedding hair by Essex Wedding Beauty

    Although it’s halloween there isn’t anything scary about this hairstyle I created on my beautiful model Rhianna! Rhianna already had microbond hair extensions in which gave me lots and lots of hair to play with! I actually was inspired by some Russian hair stylists that I follow on social media for this boho plaited wedding hair style.

  • Victoria's Wedding Hair at That Amazing Place in Harlow, Essex

    Although Victoria lives and had her trial in Kent, she actually married her husband at That Amazing Place in Essex. Which was great as I was then able to be a part of her big day. She brought most of the other suppliers over the Dartford bridge with her though, including Frances Sales Photography and Joanne Truby Floristry (who are both awesome)!

    One of the best parts of the wedding morning is when the dad see’s their daughter all dressed up for the first time and this image captures it beautifully.

  • Mikala's Downhall Bishop Stortford Wedding Hair and Makeup

    Mikala’s wedding morning was so much fun. The bride went for a half up style which we applied hair extensions to to really emphasise the curls. As the bridesmaid’s went for curly side buns I really got my money’s worth from my new H2D curling wand!

    Mikala had some really nice words to say on my facebook page after I posted a picture of her and her bridal party:

    “Could not have been happier. I can’t recommend you enough honestly thank you so much”

  • Rachel's Channels wedding in Chelmsford Essex - Hair and makeup by me

    I absolutely loved doing Rachel’s wedding hair and makeup in Chelmsford, Essex. Rachel and her bridal party were so much fun and I really enjoyed the wedding morning.

    S E Photographer took this awesome image of Rachel and her new husband and their smiles just show how great their day was.

    Rachel opted for a low, soft bun hair style with natural but glamorous makeup.

    I’ve also been booked for the bride’s sisters wedding next year in Hertfordshire and can’t wait to see all the family again for Michelle’s wedding hair and makeup trial!

  • Felicity's wedding hair and makeup, Colchester Essex

    I was super happy with Felicity’s makeup which I created earlier this month. The bride asked for a natural makeup look that was still glamourous.

    Felicity felt that the airbrushing makeup was too heavy so I applied a traditional foundation and set with powder. In fact the whole bridal party opted for traditional foundation, which worked great for the pictures as they all had similar coverage.

    I took this picture before we applied lipstick (which I always do once the dress is on), which was a light plum colour. I can’t wait to see the professional pictures as the photographer said the makeup was looking amazing on camera!

  • Bridal styling at Rock the Frock Boutique

    Recently I was asked by Karen at Rock the Frock bridal to style hair and makeup for some of her future brides. The girls were offered hair and makeup and the chance to try on some of their favourite wedding dresses from the shop. The whole experience was videoed and photographed and will be featured over on instagram.

    For one of the brides we went for a boho bridal hairstyle which I added a fishtail plait too and some flowers from Stock Florist.

  • Wedding hair and makeup on Friday 16th September

    This Friday’s wedding saw me at Maison Talbooth hotel on the Essex and Suffolk border (which I have never been to before) and it is a wonderful hotel. It has the best views and the service being provided to Felicity, my bride, was excellent. I also work with photographer Alex Tenters for the first time too.

    Felicity’s bridesmaids’s all had different hair styles which looked amazing, but they all kept a similar theme with their makeup. Here’s an image I took of one of the bridesmaid’s ponytail.
