Photos from our real bride Sarah’s wedding and a lovely email received from her. Hair by The wonderful Hair by Carol Ellis Thompson.
” Hi Gail,
Just wanted to send you a few of the professional pictures that Andrew Keher (local photographer) took. I also wanted to say a massive thank you for what you made for me and my bridesmaids, they were all lovely and everyone commented on them too!
Hope you will enjoy seeing these photos, I am sending some to Carol Ellis-Thompson too as she did a great job on my hair, thanks for recommending that I stuck with her!
I will recommend your services to all my friends getting married and hope that your business continues to grow, you have something special!
We recently shot our new 2016 collection Enchanted Forest in Formby woods. The collection features hair vines, drapes, pins, side headpieces and tiaras which have a more relaxed, bohemian vibe than usual – think festival chic with emphasis on the luxe. Each piece can take your wedding day look to the next level, but could be adapted for a style that’s classic, luxurious, bohemian or vintage. Vines can be twisted into plaits, wrapped around soft updos, Hand beaded pieces can be placed differently to change your look from day to evening.
The set was dressed by Sweet Pea and Ivy, whilst images were taken by Herve wedding photography. The pieces were incorporated into the look by Hair by Carol Ellis Thompson, whilst makeup up was provided by Made up by Cathryn. The wedding dress was from Asos, and shoot styling and headpieces by Rocks For Frocks. Our barefoot beauty was model Breanna.
All pieces are hand wired or hand sewn in our Liverpool studio. For this collection we really wanted to capture the relaxed feel of a modern wedding. The pieces are delicate and complement natural beauty without distracting, in softer colours of blush, pale champagne, opal and pinks. However, the pieces retain their luxurious feel and all include Swarovski crystals, Swarovski pearls and freshwater pearls.
We’re thrilled with the ethereal quality of these images which show how the collection can be dressed up or down
RFF bride Louise came to see me to discuss a bespoke piece. She wanted a statement piece for the back of her hair to pick out the colouring on her beautiful dress, which were shades of ivory and blush. We decided on a hand sewn vintage lace piece from the cheryl range and added in swarovski light silk crystal to the freshwater pearls, which is a beautiful blush/nude colour. Im sure you can agree it looked amazing on her day with and without the veil.
Rocks for Frocks will be at the National Wedding show Manchester of 20-21 February 2016 and also at The Wedding Fair, Event City, Manchester on 12-13 March.
This is the first time we have exhibited at the Manchester National Wedding show, so we are very excited to be there. Previously we have exhibited at the National Wedding Show in London which was amazing, so we have high hopes that this show will be too.
