Candy coloured fun inspiration with a dash of sparkle to brighten up your Saturday morning :-)
I love this retro aqua and pink styled engagement shoot, which is full of ideas perfect for weddings too. Think pastel blooms, an ombre layer cake and sparklers for starters.
Thanks so much to Audra Wrisley for sharing these images today, here is what she had to say about the shoot;
“For this shoot, we hoped to create a shoot of retro-styled engagement photos, hosted at Glen Echo Park. Glen Echo is the oldest amusement park in the US, and operated through 1960 as such! I loved imagining how many summer nights and love birds this park has seen throughout the years, and we hoped to create a spirit of sweet nostalgia with this shoot. I loved teaming up with such a fabulous vendor team, and a beautiful couple to create a shoot filled with these dreamy images! Together with Le Mariee on makeup and hair, Kelly Shore with Petals by the Shore, and an amazing ombre cake and table scape created by our lovely model Colleen, we crafted a beautiful shoot including tones of subdued reds, pastel aquas and pinks. Including a retro vibe with a modern twist, the model’s pastel pink hair and adorable A-line Vera Wang dress fit in perfectly with the vintage amusement park. We ended the shoot with a few sparklers and fireworks, which was the perfect ending to a steamy summer shoot!”
Afternoon lovelies :-)

It’s the final set of images from the WWW editorial for you this afternoon. I am so proud of this creative shoot that came together with some incredible wedding suppliers.
The last instalment focuses on model Kirsty. Kirsty had three looks on the day, all encompassing a beautiful rustic dreamy feel.
Lisa Alger at Essex Wedding Beauty told me how she created Kirsty’s first look;
“For Kirsty’s first look I created an intricate plait by incorporating a few different braiding techniques and combining them together. We then added lots of foliage to the plait to stay in keeping with the theme.
I used shades of pink for Kirsty’s first makeup look, using the new Urban Decay Naked 3 palette and ‘Pale Mauve’ lipstick by Bobbi Brown.”

This week I am sharing WWW real bride Kate’s look from the WWW editoral shoot.
Kate looked stunning; with an ethereal paired back English Rose look. Her first look is quite classic, with Kate donning Isabelle by La Poesie and a rhinestone encrusted branch hair vine by Klaire Van Elton. Set in the house at Moggerhanger Park, it provided the perfect backdrop to this timeless style. Lisa Alger from Essex Wedding Beauty tells us how she achieved Kate’s hair and make up;
“I wanted to create a fresh dewy look for Kate, which I achieved using sheer products allowing the skin to shine through. The products used can be found on the tutorial (coming soon). Kate’s warm tones in her skin worked well with browns and bronze eye shadows, which I also applied under the eye to enhance her beautiful big brown eyes.
For Kate’s second look I used ‘Crimson’ lipstick by Bobbi Brown and added liner to the eyes to compliment this more evening look. To create the relaxed low bun, first I loosely curled Kate’s hair in different directions with a medium sized tong. Then after securing a hair donut, close to Kate’s hairline, I gathered curls of hair and pinned to cover the padding. Using padding is a great way to add volume to an updo whilst still having plenty of hair to work with.“
Huge thanks to Carey Sheffield for sharing her imagery today.

I am so excited to get back to the WWW editorial shoot I worked on with a brilliant team of wedding suppliers back in July. A few weeks back I shared the details and décor from the woodland shoot and today I share with you the first of our bridal looks.
WWW real bride Katy had a pretty, natural and bohemian look. She looked stunning and totally rocked being a model for the day.
In the first look Katy wore the beautiful Blossom by Belle & Bunty and an entwined bud brass side tiara by Klaire Van Elton. She had a natural green leafy bouquet by Joanne Truby Floral Design to compliment her look and stunning make up by Lisa Alger at Essex Wedding Beauty. Lisa shared how she achieved Katy’s look;
“Katy already has amazing skin, so to create a natural base I used just a small amount of Airbase Airbrushing foundation. As we shot on such a beautiful sunny day, I set the foundation with Daniel Sandler Invisible Veil Powder, to minimise any shine created by the heat. I also used natural earthy tones on Katy’s eyes and enhanced her eye shape using Ardell cluster lashes. These lashes are great to add fullness whilst still looking natural.”
The gorgeous images are courtesy of Carey Sheffield.
Joanne Truby shares how she created Katy’s delicious bouquet;“I wanted the bouquet to reflect the natural ethereal/bohemian style of the shoot, not to structured. I used lots of foliage; sharon fern & seeded eucalyptus to create different textures. For the flowers I wanted to stick to soft neutral tones to fit with the style of the shoot but I also wanted the flowers to be romantic at the same time. I used antique caramel garden roses which have a beautiful sweet smelling fragrance, blushing bride protea, white veronica and seeded scabious heads which added interest with the different textures.”
