Indulge in the original bouquets, natural makeup, and wedding sunset images and take heed of advice from some industry experts and you won’t go wrong. Inspiration, dear friends, is only a click away!
We start with freelance makeup artists Hilary Ho. Hilary has some wise words to say about exactly when you should be booking your hair and makeup artist for your wedding. Research is the key, both of the kind of style you think you’d like and also which hairdresser and/or makeup artist. The best ones get booked early so make sure you know your dates and do it well in advance.
Succulent plants can often lift a bouquet to being something other than a purely traditional poesy. The texture, colours and shapes of succulents will make your bouquet more original and give a bit of an earthy feel. Sofia Oliveira from Green Pick has succulents as their specialty and work with them often when they create a bride’s bouquet. Check out the picks for inspiration.
Want to have more fun in your wedding photos? Well, in the words of Alison Cooke, “if it doesn’t feel natural, then it won’t look natural either.” Alison hits it on the head with the fact that choosing the right photographer, with whom you are completely comfortable, will bring out the best in your photographs.
‘Enhancing your beauty without using lots of products” What a great answer from hair and makeup artist Sanrda Lovisco. This is an important question if you don’t wear makeup often and want to keep it simple, but impressive, on your big day.
