We find out how to achieve the hair and make-up look from our stunning Ophelia In The Water shoot

We find out how to achieve the hair and make-up look from our stunning Ophelia In The Water shoot: Image 1 Bridal Hair By Marina
I love a challenge and couldn't wait to get my hands on Ella's hair. Ophelia was a true beauty of her time as is our beautiful model Ella Palmer, with her waist-length thick hair I set about creating spiral curls that represent the spiralling madness and wild uncertainty of this tragic character.

Two sets of hair extensions were used in contrasting colours to achieve the wild abandonment look of our Ophelia. I used heat protector with a medium hold and a 10mm styling wand for both the hair extensions and Ella's hair. Taking small sections of hair and not combing through gives a spring-like appearance and a young modern bohemian look to Ella's luscious locks.

The hair extensions were put in with clips facing upward giving that extra drama, but also allowing me more length to play with and really achieve that modern wild, tousled look of our Ophelia.

Victoria Taylor Bridal and Photographic Makeup
I loved creating this make-up look! I wanted to create something visually stunning on camera, which would reflect the tapestry colour palette we had chosen. For Ella's skin I used a highlighter to prime and also give a dewy glow, so that her skin would reflect the light, I could then buff over a light base so it blended seamlessly, with a gentle contour.

On her eyes I used a soft pastel pink and ochre in the crease to add depth. Ella's lashes were already done so this added a bit of drama. Her lips were a soft berry colour to tie in with the russet colours we had in the bouquet. It's an editorial look but can easily be adapted to a bridal makeup. I love being able to provide makeup inspiration to brides -to-be, it's still a classic look that won't date.
