If you’re looking for the perfect blueprint for a countryside wedding with a light, airy feeling that makes the most of natural light and refined rustic styling, you need look no further than this styled shoot. The neutral palette chosen by the styling team perfectly complements the barn venue, Hatherden Farm in Andover, combining layers of taupe, oatmeal, and caramel with touches of peach, pink, and coppery gold. Wood tables with silk runners, dried floral arrangements, and shiny metal accents carry the theme through. And that’s all before you see the gorgeous hair and makeup created by Make Me Bridal pro, Helen Heatherwick of Claire Jane’s Totally Flawless! The ideal inspiration for a barn or outdoor summer wedding.
The brief given to Heather was for natural makeup with a bit of movement in the hair. So for the bride’s face, she went for a really natural, less-is-more look. Model Claudia’s skin was enhanced to give it a soft glow which looked amazing in natural light. Heather also used very natural lashes and finished off with a gentle pink on the lips and a touch of eyeliner to define Claudia’s eyes.
Model Claudia’s hair is naturally thick, so to make it look extra lustrous, Heather chose a half up half down style with lots of twists and textures to create that all-important movement. Another lovely detail was the natural foliage hair pieces that were created by the floral designer.
