How to…Master Perfect Make Up for a Destination Wedding

After the popularity of the last post I ran in conjunction with Sandals and Martha Stewart Weddings, I am pleased to report that I have part two of their video series to share with you.

Susannah, who was married at the Sandals Royal Plantation Resort in Jamaica, is a make up artist and wanted to share with us some of her top tips for perfecting your wedding day make up when getting married in a hot climate. I’m thrilled to share this today and I hope you find it useful if you’re thinking about going the DIY route with your wedding make up.

Under the Spotlight – Plan the Destination Wedding of Your Dreams with Sandals & Martha Stewart Weddings

I’ve got a slightly different kind of post for you today, sponsored by Sandals and Martha Stewart Weddings. I have to say, I got pretty darn excited when I received the call from these industry giants wanting to work with little old me!

Sandals have put together a series of three videos, following the story of a couple getting married in Jamaica using their service. The incredible Martha Stewart Weddings are working alongside them to style the weddings of their lucky clients too. The company were keen for me to be the lucky blog to share these fabulously made videos and I have to say my mind has certainly been changed as to what a ‘package destination wedding’ can really be. Doesn’t the whole wedding looks just totally divine? The couple were able to escape from it all and plan the intimate wedding they wanted – just for them – and that dear reader, is what being Rock n Roll is all about!

But what about the price? Well unbelievably having a wedding as luxurious as this one doesn’t have to rival the cost of the royal wedding. Sandals state that the price of the average destination wedding is just £6,585 but incredibly a Sandals wedding can actually be complimentary! They explain,

Sandals Resorts, the Caribbean’s leader in destination weddings, have broadened their existing ‘complimentary wedding’ offer, meaning that for a limited time, couples who book their WeddingMoon in a Premium room category at any of the 14 Luxury Included Sandals Resorts will receive a free* Beautiful Beginnings wedding by Martha Stewart! This fantastic offer replaces the previous requirement for the free wedding, whereby couples needed to book a Concierge room category or above to be eligible.”

They offer a wide range of locations including Jamaica, Bahamas, St. Lucia & Antigua. Each location offers you something different so you really can plan the destination wedding of your dreams!

A Mountain Top Ceremony for a Modern Art Wedding

Sara & Andy’s mountain top wedding took place at Sapphire Point in Breckenridge, Colorado. They kept it intimate with only 50 guests to the wedding and reception, which was held at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver.

As well as keeping their wedding small and personal, the skipped a lot of the traditional fluff – for example instead of a cake they opted for ice cream sandwiches with sprinkles! They also didn’t want (or need) to add any extra decor to their ceremony location or their reception venue as the surrounding countryside and the museums art work spoke for itself and complemented their unfussy theme perfectly.

“We utilized the beauty of the spaces from the natural mountain top to the contrast of the modern space of the contemporary art museum to make the couples wedding photographs uniquely theirs” photographer Anna told me. “It was nice working with the two seemingly contrasting spaces to create wedding photographs that were cohesive and representative of the couples day, personalities and love for each other.” Finally, Sara & Andy chose not to have any bridesmaids or groomsmen.

Doing it Their Own Way

Behold – Magalie and Travis’ darling, teeny tiny, super duper personal, diy-filled, homespun wedding. I fell in love with the simplicity of their day and wanted to share it not only because the photographs are utterly stunning, but because I wanted to show you a perfect example of how to do it ‘on the cheap’ without loosing beautiful touches that make my heart sing.

The pair employed no wedding vendors (except photographer Amber Hughes) for their wedding. They did the whole thing themselves and did it in style to boot! No expensive venue (they got married at home and had their wedding day shoot at Seawall) no over-priced outfit (Magalie wore a dress from BCBG, boots from Chooka with a flower in her hair from H&M.) The flowers were purchased in bulk from different florists in town and the couple put them together themselves. The tissue paper pom-poms were from a Martha Stewart tutorial. They pulled all the food and drinks together themselves and Magalie did her own hair and makeup.

Garden Rose

I have something to say and it may be shocking to some of you…I don’t ‘get’ Martha Stewart…what is they fascination? I’m just as crafty as the next geek but something about her repulses me just a little bit. Maybe it’s because the first time I ever heard of her was when she went to jail (I’m in the UK, not Mars by the way) or because whenever I catch her on Wedding TV (yes I am that sad…) I feel inclined to run away. I mean, she’s not very rock n roll is she?

However, I just saw this wedding on her ridiculously kitch (although it pains me to know it’s not even in an ironic way) wedding website, and despite the source this wedding is so uber gorgeous that I have to share the love.

John & Lily married in Lily’s parent’s back garden which had great sentimental value for the couple. Lily’s beautiful bouquet was made of bridal garden roses, dahlias, orchids, lily of the valley, jasmine, sweetpeas, and scented geranium, all tied together with a cute blue ribbon. She also ordered some custom Liberty fabric clutches for her Bridesmaids, each designed to fit the individual girl’s personality.

Clicky here for more images and info, and let me know – am I the only wedding obsessive that doesn’t love the Stewart?
