It all started off with a call to my friend, photographer, Sarah Jewell; "Cara's over - shall we do a shoot?", things developed from there, as they tend to do! I've done a test shoots with Cara before and love working with her.
Our amazing dream team for the day was:
Photographer: Jewell Photography
Stylist: Sam New
Makeup Artist: Charlotte Easton Makeup Artistry
Flowers: The Flower Studio
Hairstyling: Anna-Lucia Hair Studio
Bridal Gowns: Bridal House, Ramsey
Jewellery: Charles Alexander
Model: Cara van Rhyn
Assistant: Kate Teare for Jewell Photography
With the hustle and bustle of the wedding day we both found that it can be difficult to schedule time to actually get those magazine worthy images brides imagine. We wanted to show clients what could be achieved. We’d also noticed a growing trend for brides to have not only one but two beautiful dresses on their special day and to request a “changeover” of hair and makeup for the evening celebrations.
Sam New sourced the stunning dresses from local boutique, Bridal House in Ramsey and the beautiful jewellery from Charles Alexander unique Crystal Valley and Nannapas ranges.
The first look was a bias cut slip dress with delicate chantilly lace by Alfred Angelo with a stunning floral crown and bouquet of seasonal summer flowers and berries from The Flower Studio, tying in with the garden colours. The makeup was kept very fresh, natural and light. The hair also, was very natural yet chic in loose, tumbling waves with braided detail.
