I wanted to bring a bit of tropical sunshine to Sheffield, and thought the contrast between an industrial venue, and the tropical foliage and stationery would be great wedding inspiration, and something different for UK couples

Planning

by Sian Chaplin Events

based wedding planner Sian assisted Stewart with the planning.  put together a schedule so that all suppliers were aware of the timings and general logistics of the shoot

Styling

by

What a shoot!
We used bespoke copper pipe candle sticks, flower stands and lanterns. Our inspiration for this was the industrial vibe given in the brief. We knew that the copper tones would really stand out against the lush greenery. We used flowing chiffon drops on the heavy wooden chairs to add a delicate texture into the room which was dominated by fantastic open brick walls and concrete floors. The hard with the soft and rough with the smooth gave the overall look balance. We loved this style and were thrilled to take part amongst such talent.

“With ‘greenery’ being a forthcoming trend in wedding flowers, I wanted to use a selection of tropical foliage to contrast against the white surroundings and copper accents. I kept the designs simple and the soft lush foliage’s brought a little of the outside into the industrial venue.”

Stationery

by

For the stationery, I wanted to create a set that reflected the flowers used in the shoot so they would compliment each other on the table. I kept the design fairly simple so it didn’t feel too flowery as there was a strong industrial feel to the shoot. Although I wasn’t there on the day, the result is amazing and everyone involved is so talented!

Scent

by

“My part was to add a scent to the wedding, as the theme had copper, I used copper metal vessels with a very fresh scent of White Mint with White Tea and combined frosted glass vessels too, with a small amount of citrus notes to compliment.”

Cake

by

my part was to create the cake, I opted for a sharp & modern lilac grey & white cake with brushed copper detail & loose silk ribbon with fresh foliage. I couldn’t be there in person unfortunately, would have been lovely to meet you all!

Formby Bride

by Hair & Makeup Artist, Leigh Endeacott

Hello lovely people. I’m so happy you’re here to read the second MUBYLEIGH blog post, albeit a lot later than I expected it to be!

After a successful start to MUBYLEIGH in 2017, I decided to leave my full time job in March 2018 and take the leap into full time self-employment (scary!). Throughout the year, I have continued to add to my repertoire whilst personally developing my brand and building a strong client base. I have had the pleasure of prepping many beautiful brides and teaming up with some exceptional suppliers. I have also had my work featured on a number of wedding blogs and magazines.

2018 was a great year and I feel extremely grateful, especially for the support that I have received. But, running a business is never without its challenges. As a small business owner you not only take on the responsibilities of your official job title, you become the customer service team, website builder, social media ‘expert’ and accountant… to name but a few. As a result, keeping up to a blog becomes a much more difficult task than originally imagined!

In any case, after receiving wonderful feedback from ‘Woodland Bride’ and because I never say no to a challenge, I am determined to get this baby up and running and provide some epic inspiration to brides and grooms to-be!

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at this utterly dreamy shoot at Formby Beach, Merseyside.

Photography

Sarah and I have now worked together on many occasions. I was thrilled when she asked me to join her on this gorgeous beach shoot! Steering away from the traditional bridal feel, Sarah wanted to create a more editorial style fashion shoot. We both love to appeal to the more edgy, bohemian brides. Sarah’s background is in film photography and traditional darkroom practice. As a result, she provides expertise in a number of different mediums and adds a real narrative to the images she produces. 

Here’s what Sarah had to say:

“I was so happy to work with Leigh on this shoot. I felt really confident that she understood the look we wanted to go for and I was happy to trust her creativity completely. The final look she prepared for us was perfect and I’m so happy with the results!” 

I thoroughly enjoy working with Sarah and absolutely love her thoughtful, relaxed nature and effortless style of photography.  If you’re looking for comfortable, stress-free wedding photography with exceptional results, I really can’t recommend Sarah enough.

Splitting her time between the UK and Vienna, she offers a range of packages for brides and grooms to-be throughout Lancashire, Yorkshire and Cumbria as well as further afield. Sarah and I already share a number of 2019 brides, so why not add yourself to the growing list!

Makeup

I absolutely love the photos taken of Emma and I throughout the ‘getting ready’ process. It’s so satisfying to see how the look develops as each application step is taken. As you look through the photos, you see the makeup really begin to enhance Emma’s natural beauty.

For me, before and after photos are so important (although I don’t always remember to take them)! They provide a clear representation of a Makeup Artist’s skill, showcasing exactly what can be achieved to potential brides. They also show just how much of a difference the makeup application has made, even when creating a ‘natural’ makeup look.

The preparation part of a bride’s big day is such a special time, one that I do believe should be documented. Emotions are high and everyone is excited. It can often be difficult to take a step back in the moment and really take everything in as it happens. It’s a great opportunity to be able to look back at your photographs and relive your day from start to finish.

TOP TIP: When you have your bridal trial, ask your Makeup Artist to take a before and after photo. By looking between the two photos, you’ll be able to see just how much of a difference the makeup application has made. You will also be able to see whether you’d like to further enhance any specific features.

Hair

I was so excited to have a play with Emma’s bob and show that you don’t need length to create a beautiful, bridal hairstyle! An absolute bridal party favourite in 2018, we went with a half up, half down hairdo.
 
As always, I started by adding a generous amount of texturising spray at the roots to create volume. Adding a pulled apart braid at the crown then created additional height and texture. From the front, I draped Emma’s fringe away from her face. I again added texture by twisting back small sections of the hair, pulling at the twists as they grew and eventually joining with the braid. Small sections of the hair were left down at the front to nicely frame her face. From putting a slight wave through the ends of Emma’s hair, the finished style looked tousled and effortless.

Model

At the age of 22, Emma was scouted at Y-Not Festival. Subsequently, she signed with Manchester agency Nemesis Models two years ago. Since then, she has been scouted by a number of London agencies with whom she is planning to meet. She continues to build an impressive and diverse portfolio. With experience in fashion shows, editorial magazines, lifestyle and e-commerce, Emma is already a well-rounded model and really knows how to work the camera.

“I was so happy when people started to see my potential and time has flown since!”

Emma has a degree in Psychology and is currently studying a masters in Forensic Psychology. She is not only an extremely talented model but also a very intelligent young woman. She has a passion for learning about the human brain and the way our minds work but, admittedly, modelling has been her true dream since childhood.

“It‘s super fun meeting so many creative, lovely people and it’s especially exciting when you see images that the whole team are happy with, knowing that you played a part in the outcome and helping people to express their art through images.
I loved working with Leigh because she is so sweet and kind! It would be a pleasure to work with MUBYLEIGH again soon.”

Florals

Our stunning bouquet was created by Altrincham based wedding and event florist Sasha, of Sass Flowers. Sasha took inspiration from the sand dunes and created a bouquet full of dried florals and neutral accents. The key flowers used were blousy, fresh roses and dahlias, mixed with an array of dried grasses. To add an autumnal feel, Sasha finished off the arrangement with trailing peppercorn berry.

“With a focus on wedding flowers, SASSFLOWER create floral designs bursting with colour harmonies and decadent textures for couples who want something a little less ‘off the shelf’ for their wedding.”

Woodland Bride

by Leigh Endeacott

I have pondered over creating a blog for some time now – the main purpose being to provide ideas, advice and inspiration to the many soon-to-be Brides and Grooms out there. The second purpose being that I have had the honour of working with some insanely talented photographers which allows me to showcase my work via epic, professional images and they just NEED to be thrown out into the ether for all to view and enjoy.

So, speaking of epic images, I can’t think of a better way to start off my blog than with a photo-filled post documenting an amazing styled shoot I had the pleasure of taking part in at the beginning of August.

The bohemian bridal shoot was held at Newmillerdam Country Park in the West Yorkshire town of Wakefield. The brains behind it was none other than the wonderful Elle of Elle Flowers. Our team was 100% women led (scroll down for list of suppliers involved) and was jam-packed with girl power throughout.

Photography

The shoot was photographed by the incredibly talented Hannah of Anna Beth Photography. Hannah specialises in natural and elegant wedding photography. She travels UK and worldwide to photograph beautiful weddings and elopements. 

“I love shooting outdoors, especially in the woods where you can really play with the light and shadows to create beautiful images.”

Now, to say this lady made my photo-needing, portfolio-building dreams come true is an understatement. I can’t recommend her enough: for your wedding, for your engagement shoot, for your portfolio, for your styled shoot. She is an absolute pleasure to be around, has exceptional vision and her work is amazing.

You can actually see more from this shoot over on Hannah’s site. Seriously, check her out.

Florals

When I heard Elle’s original vision was of a fashion forward, ‘Vogue Bridal’ woodland shoot, I knew I had to be involved. Wanting to create something a little out of the ordinary and possibly even out of the comfort zone of some, Elle’s floral pieces showed the amazing variation that can be used when creating Bridal bouquets.

Inspired by the outdoors and a recent bohemian style wedding, Elle created a beautiful botanical bouquet using tonnes of heavy, cascading and unstructured foliage with a small Hydrangea Bloom being the only flower! Our Bride, the beautiful Savannah, also donned a stunning foliage crown hand crafted with fresh, untamed foliage and all kinds of luscious greenery.

Here’s what Elle had to say:

“I absolutely loved working with Leigh for my styled shoot. I opted for a simple look with hair and makeup to fit with the simplicity of the shoot. 11 out of 10 to Leigh for the work she did, was better than I could have imagined! Lovely, welcoming person to speak with may I add! I had never done a styled shoot previously and working with Leigh and the other girls in the gang has pushed me to do more so, thank you so much!”

Model

Despite the shoot being one of Savannah’s first modelling experiences, especially as a ‘Bride’, she was an absolute natural. Working alongside a “friendly and approachable group of girls” definitely helped her to feel confident throughout the shoot and to produce shots that looked extremely organic.

At 23 years old, Sheffield based Savannah has now worked with a number of professional photographers and is continuing to build her portfolio – especially as a glamour model. If you’re looking for a stunning and versatile model, I would highly recommend her.

Hair & Makeup

Finally, we come to my favourite part – talking about hair and makeup! Throughout my blog posts, I am going to provide a detailed breakdown of the products used. I‘m also going to talk about some of my favourite products, especially when it comes to my brides, and I’ll be focusing on a different area in each post. First and foremost, the face’s base!

Makeup

When it comes to my clients, I believe that the most important element of any makeup application is the base. Which brings me to my first product recommendation: for a flawless and glowing base, my absolute go-to brand is Charlotte Tilbury. 

The Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation is one of my favourite foundations of all time. It is full coverage, feels lightweight on the skin, and suits all skin types. I have had so many clients go out and buy the foundation because they have loved it so much! For a less full coverage, Charlotte Tilbury’s Light Wonder Foundation is equally as brilliant. Paired with the Wonderglow Face Primer, both foundations create a flawless finish and leave the skin looking incredible.

Both foundations are perfectly set with literally a dusting of the fabulous Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder and, although I’m not a huge fan of the applicator, the formula of The Retoucher Concealer is also great. It’s perfect for spot touch-ups, dark circles and general highlighting.

The two foundations work well with both cream and powder contour, bronzers and blushers. They are long-lasting, easily applied and, as a tiny bit goes a long way, affordable.

HAIR

I wanted to create a hairstyle that would complement the sleek design of the dress and the relaxed vibe of the shoot. It was also important to me to allow the amazing foliage crown to really stand out. 

To achieve a voluminous, tousled effect, I started by using the got2b Salt Spray (which has been a favourite of mine since a friend bought me my first bottle years ago). This product is fantastic for adding texture – I like to generously spray throughout the hair, before massaging the product in at the roots. I styled Savannah’s hair smooth and straight, using my GHD’s, before finishing off with a quick mist of the V05 Hairspray. This spray is great for adding some final texture and leaving a healthy shine.
