Back on a beautiful day in July I travelled over to Bolton Castle in Leyburn, it's not every day you get to 'work' at a medieval castle that is over 600 years old and I was excited to say the least! Not only for the location, but to be apart of the fantastic shoot ahead for the Autumn/Winter 2015 Yorkshire edition of Belle Bridal Magazine.
A top team was put together for the shoot by Georgia the Yorkshire Editor. As soon as she got in touch and we discussed the brief for the Narnia, Snow Queen themed shoot, I had lots of ideas and was raring to go. My main focus was to create a look that was Ethereal, other worldly and very 'Vogue' rather than theatrical. I tried and tested a number of products and ideas, most of the products I ended up using for the look were from Illamasqua and Mac.
I created a very pale and extremely highlighted dewy skin. I also customised some lashes to give definition to the look. Working with Helen from Kelly Teigen Hairdressing was great! We bounced off each other and she created some amazing hair styles which married with the makeup perfectly.
Here's a few quick phone pictures taken on the day that were kept under raps until the issue was released. I absolutely loved working with the fantastic bunch on the day. Please see below for the full list of credits.
You must if you haven't already got your hands on a copy of the magazine, head over to Belle Bridal where you can purchase this stunning Yorkshire edition online, filled with stunning wedding inspiration and the North East and Yorkshire's top wedding suppliers.
