It was one of those bright beautiful mornings that always reminds me of winters in New York – Jill had definitely lucked out for her Winter Wedding Bath.
Jemma and I, helped Jill and her lovely maids and mum get ready in the little hamlet of Stanton Prior, BA2 – whilst the remainder of the family all got hair and makeup done by Marie-K and Lisa-W at the trendy Francis Hotel in the centre of Bath. A favourite venue of Beauty Call’s as we seem to be there every other week!
It was so relaxed and fun and looking at her beautiful pics from Belinda McCarthy Photography, I can see that the feeling definitely carried on!
Jill had a beautiful hair piece designed by her friend Vivien Sheriff, which sat in her choice of hair style so well.
The veil sat just below so it could be still be seen throughout and the effect was soft but structured – very similar to her Suzanne Neville and my veil and hair slide dress with it’s soft lace overlay. She looked stunning!
Her bridesmaids were wearing classic navy blue dresses and all went for a strong red lip – Jemma used her all time fave ‘Ruby Woo’ from MAC and kept faces fresh and sheer using MAC Face and Body.
In contrast we went for a subtle and natural look for Jill using convertible colour in gerbera from Stila on her cheeks and Makeup Store eyeshadows – love this brand!
Laura Mercier lipgloss in ‘Baby Bare’ finished the look – (Tip! – they do great lipgloss gift boxes for Xmas).
Bath holds a special place in my heart as my parents live there and it always feels like you’ve stepped onto a film set with it’s beautiful architecture and charming streets – check out the Bath Xmas Market – who needs Germany!
Having your pics in black and white gives them such a timeless elegance – just ask your photographer for help when editing your choices.
As you can see from the pic below it certainly helps having a professional do your hair and makeup as it lasts well into the night – ensuring you look perfect form start the finish.
