Bridal Photoshoot ♥ Hamswell House in Bath

I recently had the pleasure of working on a styled bridal shoot at a stunning location.

Hamswell House is a private manor house surrounded by 50 acres of gardens and private land with breathtaking panoramic views. The venue is situated in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the border of Somerset and Gloucestershire near Bath and Bristol.

The venue is available for weddings and exclusive hire.


I was booked to do the make up on this photoshoot and I really enjoyed making up our stunning model Kelly Louise Coppini.

Kelly has such beautiful pale skin with lovely freckles.

I had to choose a foundation very carefully for Kelly’s skin tone as I wanted to give her a good coverage whilst still showing off her freckles.

For Kelly’s foundation I used the Ultra foundation palette by Kryolan. I then gave Kelly a very subtle brown smokey eye, a touch peach blush also by Kryolan and a pinky/peach lip.

I think the colours worked really well on Kelly. It is important to me the the model also likes her make up and Kelly was really pleased with the soft look that we created.

The photographers that worked on this shoot are a husband and wife couple called Irene & Dave, there is a link to their website here

As you can see from Irene & Dave’s stunning pictures they are fantastic photographers.

I would highly recommend them as photographers, they specialise in wedding photography, portraits, engagement shoots and corporate. They are located near to Bath but travel nationwide.
