A summer shoot at Beach Hut Wedding,

Herne bay – Thursday Throwback! 


I can’t believe it’s been almost a whole year since this shoot took place. I was so excited to learn that there was a new Kent Wedding Venue opening in Herne bay, and even more excited to learn that not only was this going to be a beach wedding venue , but it actually sat directly at the end of Herne bay Pier! 


The venue itself is suitable for intimate ceremonies, licensed and tastefully decorated in keeping with the surrounding seaside theme. The views, as you can imagine from the end of a pier are simply amazing and the photo opportunities are endless! We headed down for a shoot, organised by myself, in an attempt to capture a couple of variations on the bridal style that this fab new venue might just appeal to.

My first model, The gorgeous Katherine was my boho bride. With braids in her hair, her blonde half up , half down do was a modern take on a festival style bride. This type of style works great in long hair and the different blondes were shown off perfectly. I added accessories from Lorna Green Tiara ( available to view here http://www.greentiara.co.uk ) . The dress, from Country Brides  was a fitted , elegant fishtail style.

For the make up, I added a pop of colour to her lips and ensured she had a flawless base that could withstand the heat and sunshine by using airbase , airbrush make up. This is my go to for brides, a guaranteed flawless finish and photo ready product that ensures their skin looks perfect in every light.

My second model Laura, wore a much more vintage style. I placed a deep part and side swept hollywood wave in her naturally red hair, coupled with a red lip to give her the glam, timeless appeal.( Accessories and dress as above ).
