A Western Barn Wedding Styled Shoot

A Western Barn Wedding Styled Shoot

Back at the end of July, I was thrilled to get together with the amazingly talented Danielle Mobbs to create our second styled shoot together.

Having worked on a vintage themed wedding styled shoot last Summer, we wanted to try something really different and decided on working with a Barn theme with a Western ranch feel twist. Danielle is quite a regular in the States and brought along her authentic cowboy boots to feature in the shoot!

We chose Brampton Grange as the perfect venue for our Western Barn Wedding Styled Shoot thanks to its incredible setting in the Northamptonshire countryside. The Venue has a beautiful manor house with gardens, converted barns and stables – giving us loads of gorgeous photo opportunities to fit in with our theme. And when we found out that the lovely Wedding Co-ordinator Tracey kept her horse there, we jumped at the chance to feature him in the shoot 🙂

We chose our suppliers to bring the Western Barn Styled Shoot ideas to life very carefully. We were really lucky to work with some super talented companies that understood exactly what we wanted to achieve!

Big thanks to these guys for bringing their talent to the shoot…

Northamptonshire Wedding Make-up Artist: Sumptuous on Saturday Supplier Spotlight with Samantha Kibbler

Northamptonshire Wedding Make-up Artist - Samantha Kibbler

Today’s Sumptuous on Saturday post is with one of our East Midlands Wedding Make-up Suppliers Samantha Kibbler. Samantha is a highly talented Northamptonshire wedding make-up artist who was trained at the Greasepaint School of Make-Up in London. Samantha specialises in airbrushing which leaves a flawless look, perfect for Brides.

We caught up with Samantha for a chat about why she loves being a Northamptonshire Wedding Make-up Artist…

 

Being married myself, I can remember every detail of organising the wedding and how much fun and excitement there is leading up to the big day. I can almost re-live this with the brides I meet, and I love to see that final day come when the bride is ready in her dress with her hair & make-up complete, it’s just the best feeling.

I love meeting new people and enjoy every aspect of the job whatever it may entail. Making people look and feel special is what any make-up artist strives to achieve in their career.

In May 2013 I had a large wedding booked with make-up for the Bride, five bridesmaids, Mother of the Bride and the Mother of the Groom. I had just finished the Brides’ make-up when the bridesmaids returned from the hairdressers. Within an hour of them getting dressed, the bridesmaids’ hair had started to come loose from their hair style and their curls were dropping out.
Upon seeing this, as you can imagine the bride was very upset;  I was on time with all the make-ups and as I always carry various hair tongs and plenty of hairspray, I was able to rescue the bridesmaids hair, and subsequently relieve some of the stress on the bride, which was a massive relief!

In terms of trends, the Vintage vibe seems to be very popular; I have noticed that brides are looking up to the celebrity image that they portray at award shows, so the hair and make-up is more red carpet than the more traditional bridal look of the past.

The best advice I can give to a Bride to Be, is to not change your daily skin care routine before the wedding day. For most ladies, it takes a period of time for the skin to adjust to a new care routine, this is not the time to experiment just before your big day!

When I am not working as a Northamptonshire Wedding Make-up Artist, I am a full time mummy to my little boy who will be three in march I also run a small handbag business with my sister in-law, H&S Handbags.

 

It’s lovely to get to know you better Samantha – thanks for sharing your wedding make-up background and tips with us today 🙂 Samantha offers Bridal Make-up for £60 wedding make-up trials for £35.
