Look Beautiful in a Bridal Corset

corset_3Thought you couldn’t wear a bridal corset?

Think again!

Designer Gillian Wesley creates A-list bridal and fashion corsets at her studio and shop in central Coventry (

It was really special to be asked by Gillian to do the make-up for her recent photo shoot, “Thought you couldn’t wear a bridal corset ? Think again!”

The shoot concept was to show that any woman can wear a bridal corset and feel beautiful and empowered by the experience.

I collaborated on the bridal corset looks for the 3 models with Warwickshire bridal hair expert, Julie Jackson ( I love working with Julie as our creative thoughts are very much in tune and the finished result, whether its a beautiful bride or a fashion model, is seamless.

We took inspiration from Gillian’s featured corsets and came up with the themes of Bardot on the Riviera, Fairy Princess and Retro Gypsy for the hair and make-up.

corset_2The Bardot bridal corset look was mainly MAC with gold and bronze eye shades in Goldmine and Falling Star and lips in Bronze Shimmer.

The Fairy Princess bridal corset look was all pink sparkle and fizz using Barry M Dazzle Dusts and Mac Pigment in Pink Opal.

The Retro Gypsy bridal corset look had a strong vintage feel with red lips in MAC’s Ruby Woo and dramatic eyes lined using Dior’s Artistry Palette, Smoky Design.

Thanks to the beautiful models Hayleigh, Rachael and Sammy and to for the images.

Great team work and great fun! “Thought you couldn’t wear a bridal corset ? Think again!”
