Meet Sabrina Lily – Hair & Make-Up Artist showing at Miss Vintage Wedding Affair

Meet  Sabrina Lily – Hair & Make-Up Artist.
       I am a London based Hair and Make-Up Artist. I trained at CBMA, an academy that specialised in Hair and Make Up research and styling for films and television – this training gave me a great insight into real period hair and make-up. From a beauty side I have worked at Space NK and worked with many other high end make-up brands and am absolutely obsessed with great skin, especially before a wedding day. Whether you want to look completely natural, or if you want a 40s lip or a complete 60s theme I can help you create a beautiful look for your day! I am currently working on Wicked the Musical, when I am not covered in green paint I work on a freelance basis on editorial shoots and weddings.

Join a Free Paper Rose Workshops with The Story House

Join a Free Paper Rose Workshops with The Story House , formally known as Moll & Mostin on the day of Miss Vintage Wedding Affair!

As part of the days events Lucy of The Story House has devised a great little workshop so that you can DIY your way to a unique day! You will create a paper rose, much like the ones in the photos shown here! Whether you want to use them for your bouquets, buttonholes or venue decorations, paper roses are easy, fun, size adaptable, and really versatile, as well as being beautiful. Use them to express your own interests, using vintage paper, sheet music, or, for those with itchy feet, maps.

Take a few moments away from the beautiful stalls, pop yourself down at The Story House craft table, and choose from a pile of beautiful vintage papers. In just half an hour you'll learn to make your beautiful paper roses. You'll come away with your own Paper Rose brooch and an instruction leaflet so you can reproduce them at home - all for free!

The workshops will be held at 11.20, 12.50, 14.20 and 15.30.

Blooming fab floral displays from Jay Archer Floral Design

You haven't seen rustic, fabulous natural looking flowers until you have seen the amazing Jay Archers work. Jay just know what looks right and that's why I was so thrilled when she said she wanted to be part of the next Miss Vintage Wedding Affair.

This is what she says about her floral design service:
Flowers. Love them. Always have, always will. Weddings. Love them too. The best part of my work, next to said flowers, is meeting fab couples, learning what makes them tick and working together to design a scheme completely inspired by them. Whether their shared passions are travelling, cooking or knitting I tie in details that reflect this. I grow all my own herbs from seed including rosemary, chamomile, lemon balm, sage and mint as well as decorative grasses, sweet peas and sunflowers. I like to use unusual bits and bobs including fruit, vegetables, plants, seedheads and non-floral flowers in paper, wood and fabric. 

I enjoy a good forage in the hedgerows! I try my best to be green too by composting all of my flower and garden waste and use only organic compost for my seeds and beds. Our growing space is modest so anything we cannot grow in beds or containers we source from local wholesalers who supply British and internationally grown produce of the very best quality- you will always know where your flowers have come from whether it be Britain or abroad. I cover Hampshire, Berkshire, Surrey, London and West Sussex.

Jewellery and accessories that are something dream like with Rosie Weisencrantz

Have you seen these amazing pieces!!! I'm in love with them. Rosie Weisencrantz was established by textiles designer Caroline Rose Dent, following a whimsical dream...

This is what she says about her work.

I use linen thread to  weave together old trinkets, flowers and antique lace to make beautifully crafted one off pieces of jewellery and hair adornments in the form of necklaces, bracelets, headbands, rings and earrings. My main customers are brides to be.
I approach every piece with fresh eyes, like an artist creating a new work of art, or a poet writing a new poem I like to think that my work is, in essence, about romance, memories, fantasy, nostalgia and dreams, and as such, have a poetic quality that  transcends all notions of material value.

Rosie Weisencrantz is  actually a character in a dream I had : an artist whose work was  so incredibly beautiful that I awoke from the dream with a mixture of awe and envy, and had to write the dream down. As my middle name is Rose anyway, it just felt right to take her name for my jewellery brand.
In many ways I feel that she has always been a part of me. I think we all have an alter ego,  waiting to reveal itself,  and Rosie is mine...

You can see, try on and buy Carolines work at Miss Vintage wedding Affair On the 21st October.

Visit her website for more details on her work.
