So I decided in January, that I needed to do a photo shoot to showcase my work and style to enable me to build a strong portfolio for client and professional use. It had been quite some time since I had done this sort of thing and the pressure was on, as this was all down to me Hair, Make-up and Styling.
Taking my inspiration from a catwalk show and event I had worked for last year (The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza), their ideas for bridal totally blew me away. Far from the normal conventional bridal traditional look and it made me think and look at weddings in a totally different creative way. So armed with this new found desire, bore the idea of a rock chick, dixie look, young messed up – Alternative Bridal Look. My aim- heavy on the floral, light on the dress (no dress at all) attitude from my model but still beauty, and really concentrating on the hair and make-up for a beautiful cool look.
