Setting Spray


Any time of year, a setting spray is a makeup MUST but in the summer heat it will really help to keep your makeup in place for longer. Professional Makeup Artists like our Make Me Bridal Pro Artists Emma Olliff and Makeup By Gabby will use a setting spray to keep your beautiful bridal makeup in place all day, regardless of the weather outside!



Choose a spray that suits your skin type, mattifying for oily skin or for that extra glow choose a dewy bridal finish. We would recommend the Skindinavia Bridal Finishing Sprayto set your bridal makeup for up to 16 hours or try using it to cool down and refresh your complexion later in the day.

Cover Ups

Summer is a beautiful time of year to get married, although the sun may be a little hot on your big day, it could still be a little chilly in the late afternoon. What better way to layer up than with lace or beaded throw ons to keep you warm for those outdoor photos. We just love the beautiful beaded kimono on this bride who’s hair and makeup was styled by Berkshire based Pro Artist Melissa Clare.

Floral Matching flower crown to your bouquet

Summer is a fantastic time to experiment with a range of fabulous florals and foliage. Don’t let it stop at your bouquet - why not twine some of your favourite florals into a beautiful flower crown! We adore this beautiful flower crown by Sophie and Luna with hair and makeup by Hampshire based Pro Artist Jen from Lolo & Co.

If your wedding-day plans include a romantic outside stroll for those outdoor pictures, then these little heel helpers will play an essential role in keeping your shoes on throughout the day. Put your best foot forward and ensure you have a pair or two of heel protectors close to hand.

Hairspray - hair setting spray



Tame those flyaways and take control of your bridal hairstyle like London based Pro Artist Ema Ciobanu, don’t let those humid Summer afternoons ruin your beautifully styled bridal hair.  We would recommend Got2B Glued Blasting Freeze Spray for a final fix but be careful - a little goes a long long way!

Umbrella



We know that rain at a wedding is supposedly a symbol of good luck and that your marriage will last but without an umbrella, your hair and makeup might not. We think an umbrella makes a pretty cute prop too like for this gorgeous bride wearing a pretty vintage bridal hair accessory by bespoke wedding hair accessory makers Melancholy Magpie and with stunning hair and makeup styling by Dorset based Pro Artists Caroline and Elke from Amazing Face

Keeping an umbrella handy for your outdoor wedding can also provide some much needed shade on a blazing hot midsummers day.  Match the lace to your dress or wedding theme for a bit of fun. We love this gorgeous bride who’s look was created by Surrey based hair and makeup artist Arabella Hewitt
