THE FIRST EVER PHOTOSHOOT IN AN AIRSTREAM...PROBABLY!!

It's with immense pride, that i can now share these amazing images of the first EVER photoshoot in my incredible 1956 Airstream trailer, who goes by the name of Marilyn. 

I bought her 4.5 years ago, and its a bitter sweet story in how i came to own her, as she is purchased from inheritance from my late mother. I always choose to acknowledge this, as it's without her, these images and this collaboration couldn't of come together. And so, with this unbelievable sadness, it has brought some amazingly talented people into my life!

Firstly, Simon Carter! Where do i start! He has such a passion for photography and is such a lovely human being, working with him doesn't feel like work! He knows exactly what he likes and nails it every time!  This fashion shoot wasn't normally Simons usual shoot as he is usually snapping away with dancers and performers, so it pushed him out of his comfort zone, but i think you'll agree it's brilliant!

Thank you Simon, you captured it perfectly and did me and my late mamma proud! xx

Secondly, Jada Rose - Model. She was ace! I couldn't of asked for a better person for the job :) We wanted to go with a Barbarella theme, and it evolved into what could also be from Close Encounters Of The Third Kind! Just the look we were going for!

Thirdly: Kate Fletcher - MUA. Kate loves all things creative, so when i asked her to join me for the shoot, of course she jumped at it! Kate is a great makeup artist, she's been working in TV, Film and lots of other things, including bridal and fashion, so if you need anyone for an event or wedding day makeup look no further!

Forth: The stylish Hayley! She has the best collection of props and clothes and well, anything really! If you want any styling for an event, be it a wedding, garden party and all in between Hayley is the go to gal! Not only are her props of excellent quality, but she really does go the extra mile, and her attention to detail is on point! So much so, for a friends wedding, who's theme was Out of Africa, she hand painted plastic zoo animals in gold to add to the effect, which was fab!! She's a really honest and down to earth person too, so you can really trust her creativity for any event!

And lastly but not least, Me :)

You've guessed it, i did the hair styling for the day! We wanted to go with a slightly rock chick edge, so i chose the plait side detail with some textured curls and lots of backcombing, giving it the 60s vibe!

Even my beautiful Cockerpoo Dita Dog got in on the action!!

Issue 13 of The Fabulous Rock n Roll Bride Magazine is Out Now!!

Are you an alternative bride, do you feel there is nothing on the shelves that has what you are looking for?!

Well you obviously haven't stumbled across Rock n Roll Bride Magazine yet then!!

I had the pleasure of working with Kat Williams, founder of the proudly eclectic bridal magazine, Rock n Roll Bride, back in Bristol in 2007.  We did a photoshoot together with the equally talented award winning photographer Rosie Parsons. At that point, Kat was at the start of her journey, and who would of known then, what an amazing inspirational magazine her blog would then become!

I for one, am proud to support her, which is why you will see a familiar logo in yet another Issue, this time, lucky Issue number 13! :)

 

Happy reading xx

LOVED MY 2016 BRIDES! THANKYOU FOR LETTING ME CREATE FOR YOU ALL!

So, it's the end of 2016. In the celebrity world it wasn't the greatest time! I am genuinely saddened by some of the all time greats that bid a final farewell. For some though, 2016 was a time of celebration, and in the same way we celebrate the losses, we must also celebrate the love!

My year of 2016 weddings did by no means let me down in the love celebration department! I would like to share some images of my lovely bride Clare. I had the pleasure of styling her hair in September 2016. She sent these images to me today. It's been lovely looking back at them, i hope you enjoy them too. 

Happy New Year everyone, may it bring much love, light, and happiness XX

Gorgeous Day into night Bridal ideas

This is becoming increasingly popular, so i thought i would share it with you all.

About 1 in 5 brides ask me to do their hair for the evening as they can't decide on up or down for the ceremony. It's a really nice touch to change styles into the evening, it can make the day feel as if its another day!

I offer this for an additional £60. I will wait until your ceremony and speeches have finished, and at your chosen time, whisk you away to be transformed, ready to meet you evening guests!
