Linghom is a beautiful old house, meticulously refurbished and set in stunning grounds on the western shore of Derwentwater. The bridal suite is such an amazing place to work in because there is so much space to make use of, with huge windows for lots of good natural light.
The makeup style that Lucy requested was a very editorial look and wouldn’t have looked out of place in any of the fashion magazines. This really allowed me to focus on how her skin looked and then add good definition to her eyes and lips. I really wanted her to look fresh, radiant and flawless.
The photographer was Lottie Elizabeth and the pictures are amazing! It is really rewarding to see how good your work looks when photographed, and even more so when you have had the privilege of working with such talented people. Hair styling was by Katie Simpson and I was assisted by my very own makeup assistant, Felicity Ashby. There are some great preparation photos of Felicity and I, and I do apologise for the bright green strapping that was on my poorly shoulder at the time.
Finally, and most importantly, a huge congratulations to Lu and Matt, the happy couple, and also my thanks for the permission to share :)
