So many of my brides seem to screen shot others I have done and always ask for their details etc which is why I have put together this section on the Blog!

First up out of my magical brides is the beautiful Kim Jacobs who celebrated her big day on July 17th 2015 in Ballybeg House. It was so beautiful that even just had to feature it!! You can view the full feature here

Kim had come to me for a trial a while in advance and had so many events leading up to the wedding that I felt like we could have done her makeup with our eyes closed! She was chilled, organised & a pleasure to be around even on the day itself.

Her Bridal Party consisted of four Bridesmaids – Jesse, Lucy, Roisin & Hazel – all dressed in pastel shades from GHOST, with boho braided hair and looked equally breathtaking;

I LOVE this shot of them all together;

It was a busy morning up in The Lodge by Ballybeg House – I initially thought I was being driven astray up a mountain! haha… but The Lodge was great as its tucked away from all the madness so you can really enjoy your time together.

Kim was lucky with the weather – she got a bit of sun! As it was Summer time and everything was very quirky and on trend with regards to the wedding we decided on a natural, boho-esque kind of look for herself & bridesmaids.

Subtle highlight & contour, defining in all the right places to get that perfect radiant & flawless finish! She looked just glowing!!

The colour scheme was very much pastel shades which looked beautiful & given her meticulous attention to detail, the set up for the reception itself just looked amazing!

Kim has one of the nicest families I had come across doing bridal makeup – and I really do get to meet such lovely people all the time, you nearly feel a part of it all!! 

It was a pleasure to be a part of her day – everything fell exactly into place & the photos which I’m sure you will agree are just fab! Kim is still a regular client of mine which is great as we get to reminisce on her big day!

Congrats to the happy couple & I hope this will give you ladies some lovely inspo for your weddings ahead!
