Minxies Spring 2019 Shoot - Holm House, Penarth

Monday 29th April 2019

Our Spring 2019 shoot was in the beautiful boutique hotel, Holm House. Much smaller than our usual venues but we just about managed to fit everyone in (there is A LOT of us!). We got Lumi Events involved to dress the rooms for us and what a fantastic job they did. The flowers they incorporated especially into the bridal suite were exquisite. We took a lot of shots in this area as Holm House have a stand alone bath which looks out over the grounds and an exceptional sea view. Very romantic. Peter Morgan (Morgan James Photography) took some incredible photographs of Shanie and Thalia in this area or should I say 'in the bath!'. We were so pleased with…

Smaller than our usual madness of a shoot. This Autumn 2018 Minxies Shoot was in an absolute gem of a find. I was asked last minute at the start of the summer of 2018 to be the MUA on a venue shoot at Mounton Brook Lodge, Chepstow. Being a wedding MUA for a number of years I couldn't recall it and as I pulled up to the venue I knew I had never been there before. This venue was brand spanking new. The owner, Charlotte, had completely renovated the property into an intimate, adorable and unique wedding venue. From the second I got there I knew I wanted to do the upcoming Minxies Shoot there. The rooms are spectacularly designed…

10 Important Factors to consider when choosing your Bridal Make Up Artist

Monday 23rd July 2018

1.Go straight to the gallery..... Whether it's a website or a social media page, a make up artist's work speaks for itself. There should be a whole range of photographs to look through of their recent work. We are very lucky to be in an industry where every time we work we can capture it. Look for bridal make up photographs not just occasional make up, you need to be able to see past bridal looks and make sure they have Bridal make up experience. 2.Testimonials / Reviews. When brides take the time after their wedding to thank their make up artist you know that they have done a good job. Look through the website to see if they have a testimonial…

Minxies Spring 2018 Photoshoot - Gileston Manor

Sunday 15th April 2018

Minxies Spring 2018 shoot was in the brand new South Wales wedding venue, Gileston Manor. What a stunning location. This Georgian Manor house is based in St Athan looking over the sea. The grounds are spectacular and even though we did the shoot mid April and the gardens were not yet in bloom it was still breathtaking. Gileston has its very own church and a brand new Civil Ceremony temple. What a backdrop to work with for the Minxies shoot. As always we had a lot of the Minxies team there on the day getting our seven models ready with upcoming bridal looks we had created. With being wedding hairstylists we are very fussy with our bridal hair accessories, they…
