August has been a busy month I have had shoots for Sainsbury's, Getty Images and Lagom Fashion all shot in London and I have had a super busy month of weddings and wedding make up trials...lots of gorgeous brides to beautify for their big day! I have been lucky enough to be meet some really lovely people along the way and visit some stunning and interesting locations too.
My month in pictures!
First off I made my first ever trifle with mum and profiteroles both were received at the family BBQ very well...yum yum : )
I just love this photo it captures the girls getting ready on the wedding day perfectly, always such fun!

Lagom fashion shoot on the South bank shot in an old warehouse with a film noir vibe.
This year has definitely seen an interesting shift in bridal make-up and hair trends.
As this years bridal make-up trials began in January it soon became apparent that many of my brides were opting for a more glamorous 'made-up' look for their big day as opposed to the very popular 'boho' natural make-up and very soft hair styles over the past couple of years. I have seen many brides with red painted nails and hair artfully perfected into glamorous waved and curled styles. I have applied a lot of red lips and defined eyes with dramatic smokey brown and grey hues and precise eyeliner flicks.
Hollywood glamour and the roaring twenties for example have heavily inspired many of my 2014 brides.
There has obviously still been many brides opting for the more natural make-up and softer hair styled looks and there always will be but it has been fun to do these stronger looks as well!
The pictures below are images brides have sent to me as there inspirational hair and make-up pictures.
Here are just a couple of my very glamorous brides and I hope to share more professional images with you soon.
