How To Move Past The Coronavirus and Plan Your Wedding

BY Jennifer Holdway

The reality of the Coronavirus has set in and many couples are faced with the logistical challenges of postponing and in some cases completely rearranging their wedding. Couples getting married later in the year are trying to decide if they should postpone their wedding as well. How long should they wait before they bite the bullet and pick a new date? Should everyone just wait until 2021 to get married or is it safe to plan your wedding in December?

What you all need to realise is that you are not alone. Whilst not everyone is facing the exact same challenges as you, we are all facing uncertain times. The only difference is that we are all handling the awful COVID-19 in our own ways, but that does not mean you have to do it alone. I have a wonderful friend who, despite the fact we both have men who love us very much, checks I am alright every day and I do the same for her. Whilst the loves of our lives are wonderful, it is good to have a fr…

Wedding Make up FAQs

When it comes to Wedding Makeup (and makeup in general) I get asked a lot of questions and decided to write a blog with some of the most common questions.

1. What foundation do you recommend for mature skin?

My personal favourite is definitely Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation. I wear this myself and it's a favourite of Mother of the Bride/Grooms. It's more of a tinted moisturiser and is lovely and dewy. I would avoid a matte finish Foundation or anything too heavy, especially around the eye area, for more mature skin.

2. What concealer would you recommend for under eye area?

Again, it's a Charlotte Tilbury product (there's a theme here, Charlotte knows her stuff). It's a relatively new product that launched last year, it's the Magic Away Concealer. This concealer is beautiful under the eye, it's very light and blends beautifully. It comes with a sponge applicator which is great for personal use.

3. How d…

St Ives Harbour Hotel Wedding by Jon O’Connell Photography

The wedding of Tom and Karen who were married at the St Ives Harbour Hotel was blessed with some beautiful weather. Neither Tom or Karen were from the area but St Ives held some special reasons or memories for them to make the decision to get married here.

Both staying at the lovely Harbour Hotel, I was able to move between the preperations of both the bride and groom, documenting each story leading up to the wedding. Tom seemed very relaxed with his brother and best man all getting ready before heading down to the bar for a drink and to meet their guests.

Karen was busy getting ready with her bridesmaid and a few close friends, also looking quite relaxed and all enjoying themselves. I took pictures of some of the details that Karen had scattered around as well as the shoes and her beatiful wedding dress which I hung in a recessed window space so as to also encompass the beautiful sea and coastline in the background.

Once Karen was in her dress we took s…
