Afternoon Lovely Peeps,

I hope you all had a good long weekend.

We have a very relaxed and chilled styled bridal shoot to share with you today.

Aimed at inspiring brides to not be afraid to incorporate their own personalities and style into their wedding day, Adriana Marie Events along with Kate Ann Photography wanted to create a unique shoot that focused on those precious and rare few moments before a bride walks down the aisle. A time that is just for her where she can be herself, gather her thoughts and enjoy that incredible feeling that comes with being a bride….

Imagine the bohemian bride with a passion for music escaping to a bohemian oasis in the woods to capture her true, edgy beauty before her wedding day sweeps her off her feet.

Quite often a bride can get swept up in the last stages of planning that they forget to make time for themselves in the weeks leading up to their wedding. Before they know it, their day is here and they haven’t been able to take a breath to appreciate it. What we love the most about this shoot is it reminds us that it is so important for a bride to take sometime out for herself, especially on the morning of her wedding day. That way she can take it all in, enjoy her dress and lap up that feeling of ‘this is it!’

Adriana talks us through the shoot and how it all came together….

A Bohemian Bridal Oasis…..

I created this shoot environment for the not so typical bride, and hoped to inspire brides to incorporate their personality, hobbies, and a non-traditional bridal look into a portrait session. I thought of the few weeks before the aisle, and how a bride will soon make a huge life change. Having a few photos of herself in her true element before she walks down the aisle to meet her other half would be a true blessing!

The story behind the shoot stemmed from the models love for music as she is a singer and song writer. We wanted to use personal items to show how a bridal portrait session can truly speak of personality, which led us to the incorporation of her guitar and her grandmothers vintage record player. I also wanted to show some creative ways to use florals which I brought in through decking out the beautiful guitar and record player in organic blooms.

I hope to inspire couples to not be afraid to incorporate their personalities and story into their wedding day!

10 Ways to Make Life Lovely – the Summer Ready One

27 May

TITLE Happy Friday, you awesome lot!

And here we are, can you believe it?! At the end of May and with yet another Bank Holiday weekend upon us (Oh May, how we love you and your multiple 3 day weekends)! Our eyes are now firmly set on the summer and boy do we have a pretty sweet line up to get you ready for sunny days and holidays!

From tried-and-tested coconut infused gel nails to rock at our top beachy destination to faking that susnhine glow with our favourite bronzer at some of the UK’s most beautiful Lidos… Whatever plans your summer holds – we’re making it lovely!

But first, whether you’re home or away, you need to be rocking one of these this summer…

One: the Roundie

We. Are. Obsessed.

Meet The Beach People.

A painfully cool Australian brand that created the round beach towel.

Adorned with intricate mandalas and understated Aztec patterns they’re just straight up awesome. Take it to the beach, roll it up in one of their gorgeous leather hold alls, lay on it at the park, the possibilities for your Summer are endless and all look picture perfect with this luxe addition.

Two: Bronzed

When it comes to bronzing, we’re all about that ‘fake it ’til you make it’ life.

Keep espeically delicate facial skin safe from those UV rays this summer, and add in your glow as an after thought with Too Faced’s beautiful Sweethearts Bronzer.

Why is it making our lives lovely?

  • Two gorgeous swatches – so you can just swirl the colours together and apply, or use more of one shade for a custom glow or highlight
  • Baked formula – allows the bronzer to be applied as a beautiful buildable finish
  • Cruelty free – need I say anymore?! So important, beauty babes!

Three: Coco-Nails

I say ‘Beach!’

You say ‘Mani!’

‘Beach!’ ‘Mani!’

‘BEACH!’ ‘MANI!’

Team! Barry M, have truly outdone themselves this year! We’re already pretty major fans of their gel polish:

Shine? Check

Chip resistant? Check

Water resistant? Check

Bargain? Hell yes, Check!

So when they release their Coconut infusion polishes, well some squeals of excitement went down, let’s just say that! Here’s what they’ve got to say about it:

Barry M Coconut Infusion is an entirely new and innovative Nail Paint formulation. Its unique, caring blend of Coconut Water and Coconut Oil gently hydrates and nourishes nails while delivering a beautifully smooth, gel-like glossy manicure. Enriched with anti-oxidizing properties, the strengthening benefits of patented Hexanal and Vitamins B & C, nails will be repaired and replenished, resulting in a brighter, healthier looking, long lasting finish. Its exclusive High Reflective Resin System offers lustrous shine, fluid coverage and amazing depth of colour.

And the colours, oh the colours! A perfect set of nudes and summer shades galore – we LOVE.

Four: Get that dress off your shoulder

If there’s one trend we are really jumping on board with this summer it’s the off-the-shoulder / drop shoulder / Bardot style neckline.

Pretty much, if your décolletage ain’t on show, you’re doing something wrong!

And this denim dress by ASOS is top on our wish list.

Heart eyes. Everywhere. All over that.

As always, click to shop, my loves!

Five: Ibiza is Calling

Can you hear that?

Yeah, that.

That’s sunshine calling, and apparently Ibiza’s on the other line too.

From the sunny sands and crystal clear waters of Formentera beach, to the chilled vibes and cocktails at Experimental beach, Ibiza can be a pretty laid back trip and it’s definitely got us wanderlusting right now.

We hear the clean eats at Passion Café and the vibrant hippy markets are a must visit too while you’re there!

Six: Don’t Travel Without

Tech is a pretty massive part of everyone’s lives these days right now, right?

Best make sure it travels well they hey?

We’ve pretty obsessed with Herschel’s collection right now, with a wallet to fit ever gadget, in an array of colours perfect for you and your beau, they’re the perfect honeymoon gift to yourselves to have your tech holiday ready too!

That Nectarine Crosshatch iPad sleeve though – so perfect for the summer!

Seven: Now Listening

I’m forever pestering my buddies over at Chemikal Recipe for my next music hit, and boy did they deliver this month!

The boys introduced my to the totally awesome Kaytranada, who not only creates some of the sickest mixes (check out his Soundcloud), but released his amazing album, 99.9%, this year. In the interests of trying to keep my cool, let’s just understate and say…

Worth. A. Listen.

The track with Craig David. Oh MY!

Eight: All One

Trying to clean up your skin care act?

Or maybe you’re trying to clean up the ingredients in your house cleaning products?

Or are you trying to reduce the number chemicals in your pet’s shampoo?

Or maybe you’re just looking for a multi-fuctional cleaning product for your road trip or festival packing this year?

Well, how does this sound: a single cleaning product that can function in 18 different ways?!

Meet Dr Bronner’s pure Castille soap: its ingredients are so clean, you can use it to spruce up pretty much anything! Your hair, your skin, your baby, your dog, your house, your dishes… No really!

Available in a multitude of gorgeous scents, each with their own specific benefits, Dr Bronner’s ‘All-One’ ethos is a life changer!

Nine: the New Flower Crowns

WARNING: huge statement, about to drop!

I repeat

WARNING: huge statement, about to drop!

Chokers are the new flower crowns.

Boom. Phew, I said it! That’s right my festival-going brides-to-be! This year, the only accessory you’ll be needing for your festival / wedding / festival wedding (really though, is there any difference?!) is a choker.

From sweet minimal white cords, to luxe gold chains, to sheer festival vibes, anything goes as long as it’s hugging your neck!

Ten: That Lido Life

If heading abroad isn’t gonna happen for you guys this year (I hear yah, weddings can be a pricey game to play!), then why not head to one of Britain’s gorgeous lidos to get your outside swim fix?!

I must confess, I’ve never been to a Lido, but as a major swimming fan (it’s the Pisces in me) hitting up one of the UK’s outdoor pools is up there on my ‘to do’ list this summer! Check out the Guardian and the Telegraph’s lists for some ideas of where to head!

I mean, does Plymouth’s Tinside Pool not look totally dreamy with that sea view?!

Have a b-e-a-utiful long weekend guys and we’ll see you on the flipside!

Peace + Love
