A staged shoot at Buxted Park hotel
With less weddings during the summer of 2020 a lot of us suppliers have had to find creative ways to spend our time and keep our skills fresh and relevant.
In September 202 I joined a really talented bunch of creatives at the beautiful Buxted Park Hotel for what is known as a ‘staged shoot’. A showcase of skills from selected wedding suppliers where we get to do what we do best!
Everything from Flowers to dresses, stationary to cake, all captured by the wonderful Charlene Webb in the most beautiful setting. Buxted Park is available for a variety of events and functions and with it’s stunning grounds and a very impressive interior it’s a great choice for any wedding day. Built back in 1722 and having played host to people such as William Wandsworth and Winston Churchill, it’s the perfect mix of elegance and grandeur – and it’s even dog friendly too! Home to 44 bedrooms and 7 suites , and set in 312 acres of East Sussex parkland, ithas everything you could possibly need for the weekend retreat or wedding day of dreams!
For this particular shoot I provided the wedding make up services. Using airbrush makeup I created a flawless base, essential for any bride and perfect for photos. Airbrush make up is a great option for brides that want a perfect, high definition finish to create that bridal glow. It’s also a great option for brides that want any type of coverage as it can be layered where necessary, meaning that you can achieve flawless skin despite any last minute breakouts!
I used Charlotte Tilbury pink tones on the eyes, keeping everything soft and natural in order to produce a classic bridal look. Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk range is an essential to my bridal kit. It’s colours are complimentary to almost any skin tone or eye colour combination, meaning that its one of the palettes I reach for the most when creating the perfect bridal look. I added glamour with sweepings of mascara and defined my models cheek bones with bronze and highlight, giving a subtle definition to the contours of her face.
Our real life couple that kindly modelled for us on the day were ‘The Robinsons’. It always makes such a difference having a real couple in front of the camera, their body language and connection throughout was amazing and as you can see we all ended up with some gorgeous shots!
