Eve Lily Charity Wedding Catwalk Show

I’m really excited to write this blog post for you as it’s about a recent and very successful charity event that we held earlier this month at the gorgeous City Rooms. It seems like a life time ago now, after a number of sleeps to recover I have some lovely coverage for you to cast your eyes over. I hope you can see what a great event it was. Thank you to all our guests who came and supported us and helped achieve a wonderful atmosphere for everyone involved.

So to the event, this was in aid of a very special girl and an amazing charity, which we raised a wonderful amount of money for.

Isla, as some of you will know, is currently suffering from Leukemia and undergoing treatment with the support of her family. Isla is only little, a gorgeous character with a beautiful cheeky smile and strong personality, I can only imagine this is how she and her family get through this tough time.

Now everyone loves the idea of a magician right? Well I have seen The Trixta in action (although not on this night, which was a real shame) and he is fantastic, a real showman and certainly entertained our guests brilliantly, thank you Ash.

The Vernon Sisters provided us with wonderful entertainment for the opening of the event and were fabulous!

Our event started with a bang with the fantastic Vernon Sisters who offered their services to help us achieve such a wonderful entertaining evening for everyone who came, I can’t tell you how brilliant they were, I wanted to watch them all night but had to work so only caught moments of their performance.

I do love what I do and the reason I do it, so thought it was about time that I shared something very special (well it is for me anyway!) I have a lot of friends in this industry and we all know how hard it can be at times, there is someone very special to me that keeps me going and makes me smile even more when they tell me how much they love something I have made, or styled, that would be Eve, well actually Eve Lily.

At the start of the year I decided to do a photo shoot of me and my daughter in a little tongue in cheek Audrey style. This was supposed to be a 30 minute mini shoot, so I could involve Eve in what I do and show what Eve Lily is all about at the same time. This didn’t quite pan out as Eve as always just got into the spirit of things and took over, with a little encouragement from Sarah and so the timings went to pot. It was such a fun shoot and we really did get in the spirit of it all.

Friday Friends :) The ‘Beautiful’ Bettie Lottie Make Up!

So we skipped last friday’s Friday Friend’s with it being Good Friday and all. I hope everyone had a lovely Easter break and are back ready for more wedding loveliness!

So today’s Friday Friends is someone who I really admire when it comes to their talent and enthusiasm. Not only are they super talented when it comes to making people look their best, she is also a mutual creative, someone who loves to explore and push themselves when it comes to what they are capable of.

I can’t recommend them highly enough when you need her service as they are certainly one of Leicestershire’s finest Make Up Artists with a lovely personality to match.

So here’s to this week and the lovely Beth Lacey from……

BETTIE LOTTIE MAKE UP 

Where do I start really, that’s what I am struggling with on today’s post. Beth is someone who again I am lucky to have been able to count as one of my good friends in the wedding industry. We didn’t meet straight away and so missed out on more creative projects that we no doubt would have done together before now. (Probably not a bad thing as we just keep finding more work for ourselves).

The thing I love about Beth and Bettie Lottie Make Up is that she loves her business, just as I love my own. This is of great importance when it comes to the wedding industry as it really shows through in her work and attitude to weddings.

I met Beth at a networking event, just as she was walking out the door, I suppose you could imagine me with a long shepherds hook pulling her back through the door so we could speak. I was looking for a talented make up artist to be involved in future shows and photo shoots that I had planned. The problem is, there aren’t many ‘great’ make up artists out there so HOW lucky was I to have that chance meeting (okay, it was a networking event so not much chance about it, but we could have missed each other had I not seized the opportunity. Something I am very glad about to this day!)

So Beth has set up her lovely Bettie Lottie Make Up business and so far we have worked on a few weddings together, plus we have been knee-deep in creativity of late, including some great photo shoots, with more to come. Beth with be at our Eve Lily Wedding Show in April showing off her beautiful work on our models, you must come and see her work! Here is Beth and our stunning models in action at one of our previous shows!

I have also been very lucky as Beth did my make up for Eve Lily 3rd Birthday Party aswell as my recent photo shoot which had an Audrey Hepburn theme! She truly is a beautiful and fun person, creating beautiful make up for lovely brides and their family’s. I loved being glammed up by her magic make up brush! x
