"In The Midst"

‘’In The Midst”
I loved creating the hair for this shoot. Adam and Grace from Clay approached me about collaborating on a wedding editorial with a twist. They choose the perfect people to capture their vision and it was amazing to work with such talented people. Rachel who owns a bridal boutique in Newry, The White Gallery supplied the most exquisite selection of dresses and headpieces. I really want to renew my own wedding vows again just so I can buy one of her pieces. My friend and extremely talented makeup artist Jennifer Ireland created the most beautiful makeup to capture the mood of the shoot perfectly. Flowers were created by Flowers by Mee and the bold colours and textures really suited our theme. Models Laura and Jonny were actually the gorgeous husband and wife from Betty Williamson Wedding and Events Planning who helped style and put the whole shoot together. Our location was the stunning Slieve Gullion just outside Newry and it was breathe taking. The mist and fog made o…

Planning your Wedding Day? Please Don't Stress :)

So, you have said yes to your soul mate, the person of your dreams.  You're finally floating down from cloud 9, to maybe an 8 ;)  The planning begins ......... it is super exciting and scary all at once. 
I will be married 4 years on the 25th November this year and would do it all again in a heart beat, to the same man of course ;). Neal and I loved planning our wedding together. We had so much fun as a couple picking everything from our venue to the table names.  I think that would be my advice to you for planning your big day! Remember you're not marrying yourself. This may sound silly, but it is amazing how caught up you could get in the tiny mundane details that really don't matter.  You're marrying your other/better half ;) because they make your heart warm, your head fuzzy and your knees go weak, teehee, (well, I did) The most important part of your wedding day should be that you're marrying the man or woman of your dreams. 
Your wedding day is the start of …

Introducing ...... the wonderful world of ...... Clay

It was an absolute honour to be asked to create the hair for this shoot. The founders of Clay are two people I have had the privilege of knowing for a couple of years now. Husband and wife team, Adam and Grace, are not only beautiful people, on the inside and out, but crazy talented. When they first told me they were developing a new venture and following their dream of creating something more moody and adventurous, I jumped at the chance to be involved. They're working on building content for their site and I think you'll all agree with me when I say, "oh my goodness, look at these images, breathtaking."
I am too excited to see the rest of the images. I promise you won't be disappointed.  I'll keep you all posted :)

“I will arise and go now, And go to Innisfree, And a small cabin build there, Of clay and wattles made; Nine bean rows will I have there, A hive for the honey bee.
And I shall have som…

Spanish Love

This time last year (can't believe a whole year has passed girls), I had not long come back from Tudela in Spain with 4 other amazing talented ladies.  Paula, Ashley, Alise and Ann Marie.  We went on a working holiday to put together a editorial we had been thinking about for quite some time. 
Paula took and edited the images beautifully.  The shoot has been published online with many wedding blogs.  One in particular, was Hochzeits Guide. We were all honoured that they shared our editorial and loved it as much as we did. 
Check out the link below to see the shoot for yourself.  I think you'll agree, it was pretty spectacular.  The location and model where perfect! 
I love my job.   Bye for now.
