Getting married at Boships Lions Farm Hotel

This is Joanne

Joanne got married on April 1st at  Boship Lions Farm Hotel
Yep, you heard that right - April 1st, April fools day! I think this is my first ever April fools day wedding in the 13 years that I have had my bridal hair and make-up business.
There was no foolery at this beautiful wedding.  Joanne looked amazing and it was a joy to be a part of her wedding day with her gorgeous family.

Those of you who know me, know that I LOVE a good wedding shoe and Joanne's are absolutely no exception.  Just look how amazing these shoes are.  I want a pair for every day wear!

I carried out a trial for both Joanne and her mum a couple of months before the wedding.  Both ladies are natural beauty's who don't wear a lot of make-up so were slightly anxious but my trial put them at ease, knowing that I had taken time to listen to how they would like to look for the wedding day and achieving their perfect look.  I love making people feel great about how they look and in return this creates a confidence about them.

Even Joanne's daughter got in on the action and enjoyed having her hair done.  She was so cute and really well behaved for the entire morning.

Joanne and her bridal party all looking stunning and ready for their perfect day ahead.
I love a gorgeous spring bouquet - I got married in the Spring myself and the colours of all the lovely spring flowers always make a beautiful bouquet.

....... You may think I could be exhausted from all the morning's fun but now I get the privilege to have a little nosey around and take photos of all the little gorgeous wedding details;

Big Love lights and the wedding cake - surely a must for all weddings

Sweetie cart, reception table layout and top table all checked out in a beautiful rustic style with gorgeous spring flowers

Rustic hearts and post box for special written memories of their special day - How amazing are these?

And as for Boship Lions Farm Hotel, I can safely say that there is no other place like it at all.

As you drive into the Hotel, you are met by two lion statues painted white and gold.

There are many animal statues in the forecourt and around the grounds of the hotel as well as many small lakes/

As the name would suggest, there is a farm on site with emu's, alpacas and plenty more animals.  The site really takes your breath away.

I love the swan pedalo boats that can be found on a few of the lakes

You will see ducks and geese walking around freely

And to top all of that..... get a load of this car!

The car belongs to the owner of the hotel who was around all morning making sure that the day was perfect for Joanne.  His attention to detail was amazing and he was extremely thoughtful for the entire morning.  I have never experienced this kind of wonderful treatment elsewhere and it really felt like he couldn't do enough for Joanne on the day which, in turn made her feel very special.  What more can you ask for on your wedding day?!

Wishing Joanne all the best, keep in touch! :-)

Hair & Make-up for the Costume Store's new website

It was great to work with stylist Kate Vaughn and Photographic Studio Imago Photography on this photoshoot providing updated photos for the costume store to use on their website. I was required to apply a very natural make-up with period hair so that the final look could go with all costume changes. The model adapted extremely well and thoroughly enjoyed playing 'dress up' for the day. The costume store is based just outside of Lewes and it is a place where you can visit to buy costumes to be used in TV, Film and Theatre productions.

How to cover up a tattoo using Camouflage creams

As a cosmetic camouflage practitioner I get asked to cover up scars, burn marks, port wine stains, birth marks, broken capillaries, Rosacea, eczema and all other skin conditions and discolourations.  When I am doing a wedding, I often get asked to cover up a tattoo or two! Below I will outline how you can cover up your own tattoo using Cosmetic camouflage creams. There are many creams available on the market, my product of choice is Dermacolor by Kryolan - this is endorsed by many companies including British Association of British Camouflage and Skin Camouflage Network.  Some of the products are also available on Prescription if your doctor gives you a prescription for the product - otherwise you can buy it direct from Charles H Fox.  1. - tattoo before any cosmetic camouflage creams have been applied. 2. If the tattoo is black, you need to apply a red colour on top of the black to neutralise the colour - I apply the product using a lip brush or liner brush.  I have applie

British Heart Foundation Wear It Beat It Campaign

It was really great to be the hair and make-up artist for the new British Heart Foundation campaign - Wear It. Beat It 2017 - This was a two day photoshoot working with a wonderful team from  Killer Creative  marketing agency. On the first day I worked with heart survivor's, consultants and surgeons which was great as I got to listen to a lot of amazing stories that people were happy to share.  In fact, this is one of the favourite parts of my work - getting to hear about other people's lives and the fact that people want share with me. On the second day, a lot of male, female and children models arrived to have their hair and make-up done so that the British Heart Foundation had a variety of photos to share for their next big advertising campaign. I really enjoyed being a member of the team that created photos for this campaign for the British Heart Foundation and look forward to
