A beautiful intimate wedding at Crabwall Manor near Chester (part 1)

An elegant small intimate wedding in 2021

This was my first wedding after returning to my business, after nearly 15 months off in 2020/early 2021, I literally only did 2 weddings in 2020 and they were tiny. This was when lockdown eased and weddings were creeping up in numbers and it was preparation for the lovely Helen and it was at Crabwall Manor near Chester.

This was a small intimate wedding limiting guests to small numbers and Helen and her Husband had close friends and family only in attendance. The one thing I found amazing about weddings in early stages of the lockdown lifting was they were just so special as they embodied love, as these couples were ready to commit no matter what.

Even being just small and intimate this did not mean prep was small numbers, it was pretty busy in that room on the morning and so much so I had to bring in assistance.

Helen was wearing such a beautiful gown with a sweetheart neckline a bardot off the shoulder strap and a full skirt, it had a really old school Hollywood feel.

Her skin is amazing and it really does glow from within as she takes he skincare seriously and it shows. I did a light cover of airbrush makeup, on he eyes a light shimmer of champagne tones and a slight wing liner, taking inspiration from her gown and a modern red carpet feel to the overall look.

"The best foundation you can wear is glowing, healthy skin"

So why is this blog part 1??? well I returned to do her makeup in 2022 for her celebrations when restrictions fully lifted and they could celebrate with all her friends and family.
