Haywood Cider Farm
The summer of 2018 has been glorious, and Emilie from Emilie's Professional Hairdressing spent many weekends doing the hair and makeup for many beautiful brides and their wedding parties and many hours with her children on the beach on her days off. She loved every minute!
The summer inspired Emilie to collaborate with four talented and amazing individuals to create a bridal shoot that would express that ‘end of the summer’ look and vibe.
Haywood Cider Farm was the perfect location with its secluded orchards and shabby barn containing cider barrels and the old original apple press! And quirky pieces of furniture left naturally about the place harmonious within their surroundings.
Steven Prebble was the photographer who captured the bride and groom, his relaxed and rustic style was so well suited to the shoot he had free rein to artistically document the shoot.
"Steven has the ability to capture the unique beauty of any environment he is in and his philosophy of photography makes choosing him for your wedding day a no-brainer."
Elaine Rawlings Bridal Boutique supplied the elegant and romantic wedding dresses, the first a simple silk gown which complimented the wild flower bouquet and sunflower crown which was worn by our bride among the apple trees in the orchard.
The second dress is a stunning lace gown which has long sleeves, an off shoulder neckline and a beautifully edged train.
"Elaine’s attention to detail and commitment to perfection is one of her many qualities, making a trip to her boutique a must when searching for the dress of your dreams."
Cornish Flower Crowns added something new and colourful to the shoot which perfectly reflected the summer vibe inspiration with versatility and variety Cornish Flower Crowns produced a pastel pink and ivory rose crown and bouquet to compliment the second dress.
The flowers are all hand cut, dyed or sourced artificial flowers arranged into gorgeous, fun and affordable designs. They do not wilt and can be kept forever after your special day!
For the brides makeup Emilie chose cream, nude and bronze tones for the eyes and a natural pink for the lips, bronzer for contouring and defined brows.
For the hair the model had loose voluminous waves, simple but entirely stunning when finished with a flower crown. The perfect look for the first dress.
For the second dress Emilie loosely twisted the hair back into a low romantic updo with soft tendrils around the models face, perfect for showing off the detail on the neckline of the dress. And a little later added a brighter lip colour to pick out the colours in the third flower crown.
The models are a real couple so the looks they gave each other were spontaneous and natural. Emilie was delighted with the outcome of the shoot.
"It was a pleasure to work with the small team that created it and who generously gave up their time."
