Hair, Makeup and Accessories!

Makeup was by the talented Abby Victoria who enhanced the looks of these beautiful brides with a number of different styles.

Abby created a soft, romantic look for bride Naomi. Golden tones really are a great way to ensure bright blue eyes stand out and get noticed! The soft rose blush and nude lip keeps things ‘natural’ and ensures the focus is on those gorgeous blue eyes!

Our fabulous Charlotte Medford Bridal worked her magic on these ladies’ luscious locks. Charlotte has recently added a carefully curated selection of statement headpieces to her bridal hair service. This allows brides to experiment with different hairstyles and accessories during their hair trial, and go on to hire them from Charlotte for their big day. This gal really does have the whole package! 

Back to hair… So to show off her new ‘bling’, Charlotte created an array of glamorous looks for Naomi and India. We’ll let the pictures do the talking!

Eleni and Emma from Inspired Events Manchester added a bit of extra enchantment with some simple yet elegant décor. This included large blossom trees, numerous candles and faux greenery.

The Wedding Cake!

Pretty Princess Cakes were responsible for this stylish and delectable cake. They created this show-stopping, right on trend, naked, ‘drip’ cake. We hear it tasted as good as it looks!

The Cocktails!

When The Alchemist rocks up at your Ashfield House wedding you know you’re going to be in for a treat (of the cocktail variety!) They’ve made their art of mixology mobile with their statement cocktail van – The Alchemistress! She’s equipped with her own team of mixology maestros and available to hire!

The Photography!

Emma Ryan nipped across the border from Yorkshire to snap these dreamy shots. We hear that there was nothing that she wouldn’t do for the perfect picture and wasn’t afraid to take on a lavender bush or two! Total pro! Emma Ryan photography
