Splendid Suffolk Venues For Your Wedding

You may remember me writing, a couple of weeks ago, about creative director Claire’s plans to expand her business in the Norfolk and Suffolk areas. She has been busy investigating more gorgeous venues in this area and this week I am writing a little about a few of her favourites. Hopefully this will give you some hints about where to host your big day! Firstly, a short feature on one of our team of busy stylists .


Elloise our skilled Brighton based stylist really sums up what the life and work of a make up and hairs artist is. Although she specialises in making brides look extra beautiful for their big day, her work is very varied and diverse. One day she can be on a shoot with a band, the next at a big wedding at a country manor and she works all over the South of England and beyond. She has such a passion about her work that each job is treated with the same joy. Here are just a few photos from her last week’s work!

Elloise worked creating gorgeous make up for Elise’s wedding in Hampshire over the weekend.

The wedding was at Old Thorn Hotel in Liphook. The hotel is famed for its spa and amazing golf course as well as stunning scenery.
