I was lucky enough to have a few features written in magazines about my lovely brides (and my work). Heres a few snippets from the articles.

‘What’s not to love about this gorgeous Maidens Barn wedding? It’s time to share WWW followers Sophie and Alex’s awesome nuptials held in Essex on the 2nd November 2019. I love that they described their day as “Fun! Silly, Relaxed.” and they also scrapped traditions that didn’t matter to them like the cake cutting; instead they went for vegan doughnuts… yum!

Other fun elements included a glitter bar come evening, ditching the top table and instead having round tables for everyone and a sparkler exit, which looked super romantic by the way.

The beautiful images were taken by Sophie Oldhamstead Photography, huge thanks for sharing with us these totally amazing images!’

BEAUTY – The ‘me’ part 😉

‘Evie Smith did mine and the bridesmaids hair for the wedding. She was so relaxed and lovely. I wanted my hair down with curls to go with my crown for the ceremony but knew it would drop out super quick so she showed my bridesmaids how to put it half up half down for the wedding breakfast. Plus this meant I got to change my accessories too.

Elizabeth Joseph-Love did all the beautiful make up for me, the bridesmaids and my mum.’

For Sophies hair styles, we decided on style that could be changed. Sophie was unsure of whether she would like her hair down for the whole day so we started with her hair very softly beach waved and then I showed one of her bridesmaids how to put it in a simple half up style.

For her bridesmaids, we opted for styles with knots and ponytails to keep it very modern.

YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER

Our photographer was Sophie Oldhamstead – we chose her because of her more natural style photos and because having her there was just liked having another friend at the wedding. Her photos captured the day perfectly, just lots of us all having a great time.
