    Makeup Magic on Your Wedding Day

    “It is no exaggeration – there is an almost magical transformation that all comes together on the morning of a wedding”, says Angie Warburton, freelance makeup artist based in Litton. “I love participating in the transformation of brides-to-be on their wedding morning. As an independent makeup artist, I choose to use all MAC makeup products because I’m so impressed at how they produce the best colour-true, long-lasting results. Every bride has a truly natural radiant beauty – all I do is bring it out to the full – blending and defining, sculpting and contouring, minimising and emphasising, producing a complete and polished look that is always much more than the sum of its parts. 2013 makeup trends keep the bold brows and lashes look. Perfectly measured and sculpted brows are essential to lift and frame the eyes – makeup somehow loses its power without them. If you’re not afraid of colour – bright, hot pinks are sizzling on eyes and lips this season. Pink looks great on most brides and, for a more subtle nod to the neons, there’s always sugar shades and soft pink glosses.” Time and time again, positive feedback reinforces that professionally applied makeup makes such a difference to the definition and finish in their photographs, not to mention the wow factor when your friends and family see you! Why spend a fortune on loads of expensive

    Wedding Anniversary – Still Celebrating 50 years on!

    Mr and Mrs Somers tied the knot with us in January 1963, 50 years later in 2013 they returned to the Lee Wood Hotel along with all their family and friends to celebrate their wedding anniversary and 50 golden years of marriage! Mr and Mrs Somers held their wedding reception at the Lee Wood Hotel in January 1963 with 82 of their nearest and dearest. 50 years later they returned, now with children and grandchildren, to celebrate their Golden Wedding Anniversary. When talking about their wedding day Mrs Somers produced a photo frame in which contained the original receipt from their big day totalling a massive £151.33! She had also kept her negligee from the honeymoon which was proudly displayed with a sign stating “We didn’t think this would last the night, let alone 50 years!”. Photos were displayed around the room of their wedding and we spotted one on the stairs that we just had to try and recreate! Congratulations Mr and Mrs Somers and we hope to see you again for the big 60!

    Black and White Wedding Photography

    One of the great advantages of the digital revolution is that whilst in the past it was necessary to use separate black and white film at the picture taking stage, it is now possible to produce wonderful black and white wedding photography prints even from colour originals. Unfortunately this has also seen a proliferation of poor technique whereby too many wedding photographers just desaturate their colour photographs and leave a disappointing muddy mess, made worse by just sending their prints though the normal colour print process. Most of the weddings that I photograph produce some images which really cry out for good black and white treatment for the album. Here I always spend quite a bit of time on each individual image, carefully adjusting various aspects of the image to give the most attractive results. I then carefully print them myself, not in the darkroom, but on a dedicated large format printer. Prints are then treated with a lacquer to give them a uniform finish, protecting them from moisture and ensuring that they are capable of outlasting even traditional prints. All this is time consuming, but I really think that the results are well worth the extra effort.

    Helpful Advice from Buxton Wedding Photographer

    Helpful advice on choosing a wedding photographer from Buxton Wedding Photographer, Adrian Leggett of Creative Weddings. Choosing the right suppliers to be part of their wedding is a very daunting task for many couples, after all it’s not an every day occurrence – well not for most couples! Whenever we have an enquiry about wedding photography we always encourage the couples to come to our studio to meet with us. Face to face meetings are always the best way for them to meet us, see what we do and how we work, in a relaxed atmosphere. Our aim is to listen to how the couple see their wedding day, after all every one has different ideas, that’s what make our job so enjoyable! More often that not they are concerned about having their photograph taken, its our job to put them at ease, we believe that the whole experience should be an enjoyable one, not a daunting one, that’s why we always do a pre shoot at the reception venue about 4 weeks prior to the wedding days, this gives the couple a chance to have an input, to experience what it will be like on the day. This also gives us the opportunity to get to know the couple a bit better. We can then discuss the pictures taken, find out their likes and dislikes, so come the day
