Bridal makeup: some natural makeup tips

Bridal Makeup

On  your wedding day you want to be looking your most beautiful, natural, glowing best! This is always achievable with the right steps and products.

Rose was my gorgeous subject a couple of months ago for her London wedding at the stunning Athenaeum Club.

A London Wedding

August is the most popular month to get married, and understandably so in England where the weather is most changeable, one hopes to be able rely on some sunshine!

I have been inspired to write this post in response to two things I saw last week.

One was a documentary about Greece (with the dishy Simon Reeve on the BBC) in which I saw the most enormous landfill site, in fact the biggest in Europe, just outside Athens. A truly disturbing site, that made me feel nauseous.

A Yogi Bride

My dear friend and yoga teacher got married this summer in the beautiful mountains of Italy and had a ceremony in Holland. I am sure you will agree that she looked stunning on the day!
