Lydia & Stuart…

We arrived at Goldsborough Hall one very pretty morning in November, …

As always, Goldsborough Hall did not disappoint with it’s breathtaking views and 17th century architecture (not to mention the sunken bath overlooking the grounds-swoon), the hall is most definitely one of our favourite Yorkshire wedding venues.

Lydia’s hair and make-up design consisted of romantic curls and braids alongside very glamorous smokey eyes and a plum lip. For the bridesmaids, we maintained Lydia’s theme, incorporating braids into each of the girls’ individual styles.

As always, when designing hair, Catherine always recommends that our brides find their dress first, meaning she can design the hair not only according to our lovely brides’ hopes, but also to the style of dress. Lydia went for a breathtaking Ian Stewart gown, which literally took all of our breaths away…

But enough from us and as always, we shall let these stunning images from Alex Abbott Photography do the talking for us…

Sarah & Richard…

This month we have been meeting many of our lovely brides to be for their trials and as the summer season approaches, we thought we’d reminisce over these stunning images from our unbelievably beautiful bride Sarah and her husband Richard on their wedding day.

Sarah went for soft romantic curls, swept to the side, a deep smokey eye and flawless airbrushed skin.

I don’t know how we manages to whittle down these amazing images from our friends over at Dominic Wright Photography, but somehow we did! We hope you love them as much as we do.

Love,

The Catherine Elizabeth Team x

Here’s to 2016!

This year has brought us lots of highs, smiles and changes; 2016 saw Catherine Elizabeth expanding into the team we have today, photoshoots, collaborations and of course, our many beautiful brides.

It has been a hard job condensing such a wonderful year, but here it is, a little snapshot of just some of our favourite moments from 2016…

TV & Film

January saw Catherine working alongside some of the industries finest, on fun filled, belly-laugh inducing, ITV television series Brief Encounters. Whilst filming was back in January, the series was released on ITV in July, so if you haven’t already watched, make sure you check it out for a New Year pick me up!

November was a very exciting month, as it saw 2 of the productions that Catherine has recently worked on released. Firstly, J K Rowling’s highly anticipated ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ and BBC 2’s ‘Close to the Enemy’  a 1940s post-war drama.

For the final wedding of the year, it was one close to the Catherine Elizabeth heart… December saw Catherine as the Maid of Honour for her very good friend Claire at Monk Fryston Hall. Emma came along too, to help Catherine get the bridal party ready, for what turned out to be a very beautiful day!

All in all, 2016 has been a fun packed, smiles all round kind of year for Catherine Elizabeth and we can’t wait to see where 2017 takes us…

Happy New Year!

One Very Happy Monday…

So when a Monday is as wet and cold as the last one, it would usually mean a case of the Monday Blues…but not, however, for the Catherine Elizabeth Team last week.

The day began with some of Yorkshire’s finest wedding providers, coming to together to showcase The Little Pearl Bridal’s latest addition to their collection. From vintage waves, to pretty metallics, the rain did not slow us down or hinder the fun. We had a wonderful day with some very talented professionals and we can’t wait to share the images with you!

Back at the studio, we did not do the usual and unpack the kit from a long day shooting. Instead, we were all action stations to make up ourselves this time for The Wedding Industry Awards 2017; for which we were very honoured to be finalists for both Hair and Make-up categories.

After an evening of cocktails and canapés, lots of smiles and catching up with some of the industry’s finest, we only went and won Highly Recommended Make-up Artist in Yorkshire and The North East!

We are unbelievably proud and excited, thank you again to everyone for all their continued support, here’s to onwards and upwards!

Love,

The Catherine Elizabeth Team x

Jenny & Eddie…

One beautiful day in August, Jenny and Eddie tied the knot and we couldn’t be prouder to share in Jenny’s morning ..

Jenny went for an elegant up do, with curls softly woven and little touches of gypsophila. Teamed with naturally defined eyes, glowing skin and that beautiful big smile of hers, she was more than photo ready!

Jenny’s lovely bridesmaids went for a similar make-up look with naturally defined eyes and that lovely dewy glow we all love, differing in hair from romantic chignons to waterfall braids. Not forgetting of course the very sweet duo of flower-girls and their soft, subtle curls.

We really fell in love with all of Jenny and Eddie’s finishing touches to their reception and thought they would deliver some serious wedding inspo for all you lovely brides to be!

We could hardly bare to whittle down these amazing images from our friends Dominic and Zoe at Dominic Wright Photography, but here they are, they most certainly do all the talking for us..

Enjoy!

The Catherine Elizabeth Team.
