In the current issue of the Little White Books’ wedding
magazine (free from all the best wedding fairs!), you may have seen a brilliant
piece by make-up artist and hair stylist Laura Mayers. It’s all about achieving
three bridal looks on one bride, and it gives you loads of inspiration for your
wedding day hair and makeup.
To create this feature, we organised a styled shoot at the Whitehall Hotel supported by a fantastic cast of suppliers too – and here are the images from the whole day.
Hotel is a privately owned traditional country house hotel in Darwen. The
venue dates back to 1898 and successfully fuses many period features from the

ceilings and an open fireplace together with a newly-refurbished stunning
contemporary function suite. Situated in several acres of gardens and woodland,
its elegantly-styled reception suites and period features all combine to make
this the perfect venue for weddings and special events.

painless and fun, bringing a unique, relaxed film-like quality to your entire wedding
