inspiring bridal photoshoot

I am delighted to present you with a styled shoot specifically aimed for bridal beauty 

The theme of the photo-shoot came as an idea to me after listening carefully to the wishes and thoughts of my clients. A very important matter that every bride-to-be faces, while preparing her big day, is the choice of the style for her bridal makeup and hairstyling. Possibilities seem endless. Therefore, I collaborated with talented photographer Penelope on a styled shoot, aiming to present all future brides with a selection of the 4 most inspiring types of makeup and hairstyles that brides-to-be choose for their wedding day.

Coordinating this styled shoot I felt extremely blessed with the people from the wedding industry I managed to gather around me. There is not enough I could say about: The magic lens and the lovely personality of our talented photographer Penelope. The aesthetics of our hostesses at Pyrgos Petreza that is reflected all around the venue. The typical inland Greek architecture of it and its beautiful grounds that gave a Mediterranean feeling to every photo. The variety in the collection of bridal gowns and shoes that designer Helena Kyritsi chose personally for us. And finally the amazing fresh bouquets and accessories created by Les Fleuristes. I am deeply thankful to them.

 Natural makeup

Many brides wish to appear natural and makeup-free on the day of their wedding. In order to achieve the unmade-up makeup look, extra care is given to the skin, whereas any imperfections are covered carefully while the skin on its total is kept clean or made-up transparently. Blush should be discreet. Eye-liner is used to define the eyes as well as individual lashes and mascara. The lips are softly painted or remain natural.

 

Hair worn down

We let the hair loosely worn down. Straight, curled or wavy, with a side or a centered parting they are adorned with accessories that suit the style of the ceremony that is chosen by the couple. This hairstyle has a boheme or romantic feeling. The total look has a lightness. It's a perfect choice for a summer beach wedding.

Romantic makeup

The main characteristic of the romantic makeup is that it remains in natural tones. Also, it is a little stronger than the natural makeup. Soft eye-shadows in earthy colors (pink, lilac & brown) are used in the eyelids and pink or peachy colors are used in the lips. Blush is chosen accordingly. Eye-liner & fake lashes are compulsory and mascara, as usual, a must wear.

 

Half-up hairdo

Half of the hair (straight, curled or wavy), are pinned up revealing the face. Flowers or hair jewelery can easily be incorporated in this hairdo. It is a romantic hairdo that could be styled with a feeling from country-style to vintage. This type of hairstyle is the mid solution between leaving hair down and pinning them all up.

Focus on the lips

This make-up always makes a statement and is suitable all year round. I suggest light-colored eye-shadows or very soft smokey eyes, choosing a color different to the gray and black palette. The key to this look is the balance between eyes and lips. As it states, a vivid lipstick in coral, red or fuchsia color is a must wear.

 

Low chignon updo

In this type of hairstyle, the hair are gathered low on the neck revealing the back and the shoulders. A classic and elegant hairdo with a range of expression from boheme and romantic to vintage and retro. Depending on the feeling that we aim for, it can be adorned with small flowers or jewelery. Could be easily worn all year round.

Dramatic eyes

Makeup that sees to a night out and is perfect for weddings that take place after dusk while the sun light is fading away. Dramatic smokey eye-shadows in colors that compliment the colour of the eyes. We keep the lips toned down, in tones of beige and pink or even leave them bare. It is rather the most wintery makeup among the four. Of course we can always wear it on any other month of they year.

 

High hair updo

One more usual choice for bridal hairdo is the high hair updo. It can be set either on the top or the crown of the head. In such a hairstyle we can give any character we wish for (modern, romantic, classic etc.) depending on its style (tight, curly and loose or textured). It is ideal for destination weddings that take place on an island because you have nothing to worry about the wind.

Nina & Jon

A  romantic and vintage destination wedding in the Athenian riviera!

It was a late July morning in the pick of the summer and temperature was already rising high while this elegant couple was getting ready to be wed...

I opted for airbrush makeup and its long lasting quality of resistance in the heat. My aim was to apply it as lightly as possible for a see-through effect! A warm violet palette with burgundy notes was chosen for Nina's green eyes. Going for soft smokey yet dramatic eyes and cool candy pink lips to complete the makeup!

I've styled the hair into a vintage and romantic, loose, off-centered low chignon! A ribbon headband with crystals adorned the de-constracted chignon. The look was full of youth, feminity and elegance! How much more sweetness could you possibly endure?

Julie & Sam

A  rustic  and eco-friendly  destination wedding by the Aegean sea!

Our story unfolds in Evia island, up in the mountain with a full view of the blue Aegean sea. Sam & Julie, a truly inspiring couple, flew a long way from home, so that they would begin together their journey in life at this beautiful and remote location. Colors of nature are so vivid in autumn and what more could you wish for when nature meets the sea: green and blue shades creating the most amazing color palette! The rustic style of the ceremony, the romantic lace of the bridal gown, the boho-chic yet greek goddess look of the bride and the cobalt-blue suit of the groom blended beautifuly with the scenery.

During the bridal preparation Julie arranged for a lovely lady to assist me with understanding her wishes and thoughts since I had no knowledge of the sign language. Being a teacher herself, Julie easily suggested to have a gesture-code between us and explained quickly a few of the signs that I would need in the process of the bridal preparation! I was so delighted when she agreed with me and the makeup foundation was kept see-through. I just adored her lovely freckles! For her eye-makeup I chose a warm brown palette that derived from the autumny shades of the nature all around us. I highlighted the skin, enhancing her natural beauty and making sure that these green eyes of hers were merely mesmerising!

For her bridal hairstyle we opted for an updo. "Baby's breath" tiny flowers discreetly bejeweled the bridal chignon without stealing away its beauty. The incorporated braids gave a rustic yet greek goddess touch to the hairstyle adding a small twist to it's boho-chic nature! And there she was, so breathtakingnly beautiful like a timeless old painting... Leaving Villa Delenia on the end of the day I realized I had a life-changing experience and I was feeling richer inside. Thank you Julie with all my heart for teaching me the word “love” in a brand new language!

Polina & Tristan

A boutique  destination  wedding with  rustic  details in  Mani!

This beautiful couple flew all the way from U.S.A. to the Mani peninsula. They chose  Europe as their destination, in order to gather easily the family from both sides of the Atlantic and have a summer destination wedding. And it was a dream one!

On the day of the wedding, with temperatures rising over 38 degrees Celcius, the fresh minimal makeup and the bridal updo with the braided signon felt like the perfect choise!

Angelina & Yannis

romantic  and  luxurious wedding in Kifisia!

It was quite late in spring and nature was full of greenery. The light of the sun was still soft and temperature was just perfect for this gorgeous couple to be wed. The bridal preparation took place at the luxurious Pentelikon hotel in Kifisia that created the setting for some breathtaking photos.

On my side, I created vintage waves for Angelina's hair and opted for gold and green eyeshadows in a deep but still soft smokey effect. The photos speak for themselves.

Victoria & Christos

A Greek  summer  wedding  in  Folegandros island!

When Victoria announced me that the wedding is taking place in the small and beautiful Greek island Folegandros, I jumped out of joy! I had heard of its beauty and couldn't wait to see it with my own eyes. For Christos & Victoria, Folegardros was the very place they had fell in love. A place that was so special to them, they wanted to introduce it to their beloved ones!

On the day of the wedding we decided to keep the bridal look simple and clean, in harmony with the Cycladic landscape. The makeup was fresh and soft and a slightest movement was created to Victoria's hair that were adorned by a wreath of small wild roses! A train veil completed the look for the ceremony.

Bella & Vassilis

A romantic and elegant summer destination wedding in Greece!

I am so sure you will be smitten by the beauty and the happiness of this couple like I did!

It was a hot summer day in August. I curled Bella's hair and pinned them up softly in order to maintain a lasting effect. For the bridal hairstyle, I created a half-updo, simple in style but effective, in order to compliment her facial structure and embrace the romance of the aimed look.

For Bella's eye-makeup I chose a sweet pink and brown color pallette finishing with a deep black eye-liner that enhanced her almond shaped eyes! The foundation was kept to the minimum leaving the skin almost natural. I wanted her to look fresh and glowing and she was truly radiant on the day!

Eva & Nadeem

A truly unique summer destination wedding in Crete island!

Is this a scene from the "sleeping beauty" or is it real? The bride had to climb up over 200 steps to meet her groom and the ceremony took place inside a cave, ...which is the actual church!

It was a hot and humid summer day in Crete island. With my hair wand, like a fairy godmother, I created natural curls that meant to last forever. The hair were adorned by a big flower wreath, in perfect proportion with their "natural" volume! The outcome was so bohemian ...and yet aetherial like a fairy!

The look was marked by Eva's statement red lips uplifting the fresh and bohemian feeling! The foundation was kept see-through. Eva's blue eyes were complimented with a warm toned brown color pallete. Pink blush to a minimum extent was used and the contouring of the face was very soft and natural, preserving almost intact her alabaster complexion! And the story unfolds...

Cari & Oliver

A  romantic and stylish destination wedding in Vouliagmeni lake!

Oliver & Cari's amazing story started high up in the air long before it landed in the picturesque Vouliagmeni lake in a dreamy ceremony! It was a great pleasure meeting them both and I truly hope that their flights via Athens will enable us to meet up again in the future. Going through the photos brings me such a joy! Cari has such a bright and bubbly personality that infuses each and every one of them!

On the day of the wedding, I kept the makeup foundation see-through and I softly defined Cari's eyes. For her bridal hairstyle I created a romantic messy low chignon. Since Cari's hair are naturally extremely curly, I simulated their texture at the back of it, incorporating their true identity at the updo. An assortment of small white roses and baby's breath adorned the chignon. A chapel-length veil completed the romantic look.

greek goddess photoshoot

Fine art photoshoot!

A few years back I had the opportunity to collaborate with photographer Adrian Jiun. Adrian came to Athens all the way from Singapore and materialised his first photoshoot in Europe. Vasso Bania, owner of NV Models agency, suggested that gorgeous Leena Koulonitsiou should become our Goddess. The shooting took place at VN Models' building and will be part of Adrian Jiun's collection named "The Mythical Land of Lost Goddesses".

My inspiration for the make-up and hairstyling derived from ancienct Greek Goddess "Athena Pallada" aka Minerva.
