Brides Magazine Photo Shoot

Last Friday, one of my Brides-to-be Katie and I went up to London for a photo shoot for 'Brides' magazine.  I obviously can't divulge all the information about the shoot, but it was great fun and amazing to see everyone at work.

Katie and I weren't really sure what to expect, especially when we arrived at the address and found it was the most amazing house in North London.  We thought we had the wrong address until we saw flashes in the window.

When we walked in there was a lot going on.  A photographer taking pictures in the lounge, stylists pressing dresses in the conservatory and down in the basement kitchen, girls were being applied with makeup and having their hair styled.  Just off a film set.

One of the very talented team was professional makeup artist Sarah Brock. She was so friendly and made everyone feel at ease.

Sarah is a multi award winning makeup artist having regularly worked for Brides Magazine as a makeup artist (for the shoots inside the magazine as well as the covers) and also regularly contributes to national magazines and the national press as a makeup/ beauty expert.

Sarah is also the chosen makeup artist to create makeup looks for designer's bridal advertising campaigns, such as Phillipa Lepley, Sassi Holford, Stewart Parvin, Madeline Isaac-James and Rainbow Couture to name a few.

Whilst Sarah does these amazing campaigns, she also works for private clients, so do contact her and she if she is available for your wedding makeup.

I took some photographs whilst I was there, but will save them until after the issue is released.  I believe it is the next issue due out in March, so do look out for Katie - she looked amazing!
