Today we spent the day with absolute stunners, Ellie and Matthew at Hotel Gotham in Manchester.
As a recently opened hotel, this was the first time I was able to peek inside and wow it did not disappoint! The attention to detail is incredible, there was even a 'Gotham' newspaper! The roof terrace is one of very few in Manchester, but unfortunately you must be staying at the hotel or a member to be able to take advantage - which isn't always a bad thing!
For Ellie's hair and makeup, I wanted to create an uber glam look, which would still look timeless and compliment her insane Pronovias gown.
For her hair I took inspiration from 1950's Hollywood.
Ellie has a tonne of hair so this hairstyle was easy to achieve - with a bun ring, a thousand bobby pins and an ozone layer of hairspray!
One of my all time favourites is the Moroccan Oil hairspray, as it adds an amazing shine to the hair without being sticky - it also smells incredible!
The makeup had to be full on glam, big lashes, lots of liner and warm tones, to work with the autumnal colour palette.
I always ask my brides the colour of their flowers, so you can create a gorgeous well tied together look.
