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…

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.

Lucinda & Adam…

On a glorious day in June we had the pleasure of sharing the morning of Lucinda’s wedding day along with her beautiful bridesmaids and of course, not forgetting, the gorgeous little Betty and her expert heel wearing skills..(psst).

Lucinda had the bridesmaid dresses handmade, therefore catering to each of the girls’ unique styles, which translated so nicely into the girls’ hair and makeup choices. Lucinda was very relaxed about the the hair and make-up for her girls, her main concern being only that they were all happy. It made for a very fun morning for the team, creating a diverse range of looks for each bridesmaid.

Screen Shot 2016-09-03 at 21.27.24

 

The girls went for relaxed curls with part or all the hair down, differing from waterfall braids to victory rolls. The hair was teamed alongside natural smokey eyes, differing in liner from natural lash lines to bold flicks.

All in all, it was a lovely morning spent with lovely people and we were so overwhelmed when Lucinda was kind enough to share some images with us from the very talented Georgina Piper, that we felt a blog post was most definitely in order. Congratulations again Lucinda and Adam, we hope you all had a wonderful day (from the looks of all those smiles you certainly did!).

So enough from us and we’ll let the photos do the talking…

Enjoy!

My Morning With A Top World Hair Stylist!

Today was a very exciting day, as I have had my hair color done by a top fashion hair stylist, Fernanda.

Fernanda is an amazing hairdresser, who has been working over the past 40 years, on various fashion shoots around the world and films.  like Lord Of War with Nicholas Cage, and was key stylist to Sienne Miller on the set of her latest film.  Which if you look closely at the mirror in the pictures you will see the photo’s of Sienna!

As I arrived at Fernanda’s apartment, which is where she has an in house salon.  It was like stepping into some thing out of instyle magazine! Stunning modern feel, yet relaxing with various crystals around in beautiful bowls and arranged into a heart on one of the walls.  And the view, which I unfortunately did not have time to take a picture of, was something else.  looking over the sea, it was so idyllic.

After being transformed back to blonde.  Fernanda invited me to stay for an amazing Organic homemade soup lunch.  Which was delicious!

As I was about to leave Fernanda Grabbed my hand and closed it tight in hers and she let go, she had placed a beautiful dark crystal.  Which was one she had collected herself when working in Namibia.

Love n Hugs
