Rowena’s wedding was my second at The Ashes near Leek in Staffordshire. It’s a beautiful venue but one of it’s major bonuses (for me at least) is The Old Dairy – a suite of rooms for the bridal party to get ready in. The makeup room had been refurbished since I’d last visited and now has a huge mirror, spacious workstation and makeup artist friendly lighting. It’s a great space to work in!
Like Leanne, who also got married at The Ashes, Row wanted a really natural look. I kept her makeup soft and neutral in colours that complemented her fair complexion – a step up from a no makeup makeup. For her hair I created a deconstructed fishtail braid. Row wanted it tousled and loose, almost as if it was falling out. It’s always a challenge to do that kind of style without the hair actually falling out but as you can see by the pictures, it held all day and evening.
It was lovely to be once again working with Deborah from Stott Wedding Photography.
