City Chic. A Bath elopement.

Finally! It's been a looooong time but we made it. Well done. I'm so proud of each and everyone one of us - it's not been easy but WE DID IT!!!

So some of you may have noticed that over lockdown I have rebranded and had a little tidy up on the old socials. I've been working hard to make sure the Rose Forrest brand appeals to those fashion forward, effortless city/boho brides who have an eye for more than just the 'basic'!

To get back into the swing of things I was lucky enough to join as the HMUA on a 'run away to the city' styled shoot with a super tasty team of suppliers. YES - TASTYYYY!

The brief; elegant, stylish, chic and in the beautiful city of Bath meant it was a no brainer to jump on board. To be honest, the jumpsuit alone would have been enough to sway me. Anyone who knows me knows I am obsessed with them and live in them, day in day out! JUMPSUITS FOR THE ABSOLUTE WIN!!! Who's with me?

The hair and make-up for the shoot sums up the Rose Forrest Bridal style perfectly. Just look a those soft tousled waves gently framing the face and the low off centre topsy-tail that flows downwards and leads the eye to the stunning open back design of the outfit. This style will never look 'outdated' and will look good in photos for generations to come. The statement piece is of course the hair band made by @theluckysixpence.

The make-up is glam but it's not overdone and 100% red carpet worthy. The kissable pink lips that match the blush. The soft natural smokey eye with smudged liner and the tiniest teeniest single lashes to help frame the eye that no one would guess aren't your own. That's what Rose Forrest is all about!

To achieve this look I used a selection of Charlotte Tillbury staples including her light wonder foundation, brow mascara and her first love powder blush

I hope you love this look as much as me - damn it feels good to be back!
