Minxies Spring 2018 Photoshoot - Gileston Manor

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 add to the overall look, whether its a veil or an accessory we love Aslett & Willett. Aslett & Willett make handmade, to order, bespoke wedding hair accessories and they really do have the wow factor, they make our hairstyles stand out from the crowd.

We are constantly looking for photographers that understand our fresh, modern style and luckily met Peter Morgan of Morgan James Photography. Not only a very talented wedding photographer but a huge personality and could handle the chaos of the Minxies shoot easily. Well organised chaos! Peter fitted in so well and really made the models feel at ease.

We turned to one of our all time favorite wedding dress suppliers Perfections. Perfections dresses never disappoint! They are on point, up to date, bang on trend bridal dresses. With each model coming out of the dressing room looking like a million dollars. No wedding dress would be complete without a bouquet and our Minxies models would look bare without one in hand. These finished off the look with eye catching bouquets by I Love Lilly. Those colours though against the dresses.....!

We loved the day as always and it gives us a chance to pick looks that we love at the moment and to show our skills. It gives brides a look into us as a team, who we are and the looks we just love to create.

Please check out our Minxies Promo video which was created on the day by the ever so talented Hitchflicks....

𝔽𝔸ℂ𝕋. β€˜I’m not good enough yet’ β€˜I haven’t got a good following’ β€˜What if I look stupid’ Don’t be disheartened when you first start something. Growing is part of the process and believe me when I say you don’t get anywhere fast. So get started ASAP and learn to enjoy the process. πŸ–€Your not going to have massive engagement on your first reel πŸ–€Your not going to gain 5000 followers after 20 posts πŸ–€Your not going to be picked up by your favourite brand after one tag But who cares?! πŸ‘ŒYour starting to build πŸ‘ŒYour learning and growing as you go πŸ‘ŒYour building something of your own AND THAT IS FUN AND SATISFYING IN ITSELF πŸ™Œ All the insta perfect accounts were beginners first. Dont get yourself demotivated because it looks like everyone is getting ahead. Set your own achievable goals and work at it every day. 3 WORDS : Just Be Consistant I find it extremely challenging a lot of the time at the minute. With cole being a very active 2 year old and Sofia only 4 months I get so wound up I can’t be creative and do my make up looks that keep me going. Especially not being able to work and paint faces like I usually do. When I plan an evening to myself to just play with my make up, film a look, watch some inspo and I can’t because one of them needs me I can’t help but feel frustrated and I feel selfish just because of feeling like that (major mum guilt). You can easily just give up and put it on hold but if you need to be creative and it makes you happy keep doing it and if you are thinking about starting something DO IT! If I can get one look in a week I’m happy 😊 but let me tell you if I didn’t have my two little ones I’d be blowing up your insta feed every day!!!! 🀣
