Every time I drive onto the beautiful Orchardleigh Estate, Frome – wedding makeup I am wow’ed by the stunning scenery. The long stately drive through green fields lead through the golf course to the exquisite Orchardleigh House which makes for the perfect Somerset Wedding Venue. Being so near the county borderline it a great choice for an ‘almost’ Wiltshire Wedding Venue! The Walled Garden is beyond dreamy and has a beautiful area to have a civil ceremony. If you love the mystic and ancient spiritual atmosphere of a church wedding St Mary’s church which is on the grounds and the All Saints church in Lullington are absolute recommendations.
I love my job as a bridal makeup artist. I’m completely in love with creating natural bridal makeup and elegant bridal hair. Angela and Tom’s wonderful wedding, photographed by the fabulous James Green (who is also my hero and hubby) was too much fun. The lovely bride was a dream to work with alongside and her sisters who had bridesmaid makeup and cute flower girls who wanted just a little wedding day blush and gloss.
Angela requested my bridal makeup services last minute due to her previous artist having to cancel, I was delighted that I could be her’ last minute makeup artist’ for her wedding day. I often get booked over a year in advance but surprisingly not every day and not every weekend. I always recommend brides to call wedding suppliers even if it is last minute to check availability and hopefully book.
Many of the bridal magazines and blogs may recommend booking wedding makeup six months in advance. I recommend booking as soon as possible. Set a date, get a venue, church, photographer and then spending the next weekend cosied up at home researching suppliers online, choose your most favourite ‘stylistically’ then ask them for their recommended if you are struggling to find a supplier you like. I have loads of fabulous recommendations from fellow wedding suppliers who I highly esteem and love both to work with and their artistic style. This is my little bridal tip for you!
I used the soft and gently bridal makeup tones in my MAC range alongside Chanel Rouge Coco Shine #54 Lipstick to finish the glowing bridal look. Enjoy the beautiful bride and have a small glimpse of her Orchardleigh Wedding near Frome in Somerset.
