The styling for this shoot was a romantic autumn wedding with the beautiful rich autumnal colours you find in your everyday landscapes. The stand out colour being a gorgeous burgundy red which was incorporated into the flowers and the makeup. Our gorgeous model, Shamalie, was an absolute dream to style for this shoot.

These beautiful images were taken by the lovely Daisy Barnard of Daisy Barnard Photography. The shoot took place in the breathtaking gardens of Samaras Manor and, thankfully for us, the autumn sun was out in all its glory that day.

Credit also goes to Claire from Eden by Claire for the beautiful florals and Ellis Collections for providing the dress, designed by Pronovias. Hair was styled by Jade Murray and the makeup was done by myself with the overall styling and coming together of the shoot by the wonderful Cherish from Style to Cherish.

It really is amazing to see what happens when a group of creatives with a passion for what they love come together.

I hope you love these images as much as I do! Thank you again Daisy for capturing these. X


I couldn’t resist sharing these beautiful images from a personal project we did with the awesome and super talented Matt Porteous and Max Burnett from Matt Porteous Photography.

After a little brainstorming session, we decided we wanted the look of the shoot to be of a dreamy, ethereal quality, so delicate and romantic with subdued coloured hues.

We had originally planned to shoot in the woods but the weather had turned really cold on that particular weekend in March so we ended up shooting in a beautiful old Victorian property which had been empty for a few years. Also, the models we had originally planned to use had to cancel at the last minute so Matt asked if myself and my gorgeous friend and hairdresser, Enia, fancied stepping in. We were both unsure at first as we’re so used to being behind the camera but then thought that this would probably be the only opportunity that we would ever be likely to do something like this! Enia was such a pro and looked so good in front of the camera. I, on the other hand, felt so nervous and uncomfortable as soon as I stepped in front of the camera! It turned out to be such a fun experience though and I’m so glad Matt had persuaded us to do it, in the end!

Also, the lovely Claire from Eden by Claire had kindly made these beautiful flowery headpieces the day before the shoot so there was no way these beauties were going to waste!

Even though the shoot hadn’t quite gone to plan, I’m so happy with how these images have turned out.

I loved working on this shoot for Gallery Magazine with photographer extraordinaire Danny Evans.

The shoot had a real earthy feel where the location, model and clothes all blended together. To compliment the look, I kept the tones muted with a soft peachy feel and a slightly smoking eye.

This is a classic and pretty makeup look that would also work really well for a wedding or special event.
