Hampton Court Palace is romantic, flamboyant and majestic. It is no wonder that so many bridal couples choose this beautiful venue to have their dream wedding.
King Henry VIII is most associated with this riverside palace, situated in East Molesey, Surrey. The Tudor architecture is among the most important in existence, but the elegance and romance of the palace owes much to the baroque buildings commissioned by William and Mary in the 17th century.
This incredible Palace offers so many stunning back drops for wedding photographs which will be treasured for years to come.
The palace is surrounded by gorgeous parkland and gardens which are ideal to explore or steal a quiet moment with your beloved.
The Garden Room is situated within these grounds. It is a lovely bright room which is a great venue for weddings. It also plays host to the Hampton Court Palace Wedding Fair twice a year.
I have been honoured to be invited to have a stand at this fantastic Wedding Fair since 2012! I always enjoy meeting the Bridal Couples who attend this brilliant event.
At the 2014 Autumn wedding fair, my sister Tara kindly agreed to assist me with my stand and be my ‘Bridal Model’ for the make-up demo.
I find the brides enjoy watching the hair styling and make-up application to gain inspiration for their Bridal look.
They are also interested to see that I use a combination of professional hair and make-up products which help to create the perfect look.
I styled Tara’s hair in a romantic, vintage inspired, half up/half down style. Her make-up was done using natural shades to enhance her features without making her feel over-done.
I always recommend the bride books a hair and make-up trial well before the wedding to perfect her dream bridal style.
If you are planning your wedding and need some fantastic ideas, I look forward to seeing you at the next Hampton Court Palace Wedding Fair on 22nd February 2015.
Thank you to Jo and Hugh for allowing me to share their beautiful wedding photographs taken by Nick Rose at Hampton Court Palace last Summer. It was a pleasure providing my services to this gorgeous bride and her lovely bridesmaids.
