You may not believe this but it’s true – here at Smashing the Glass, we have never featured a styled shoot. No, really, if you don’t believe us, go back and check (it’s an excuse to gaze at hundreds of pretty weddings, if nothing else).

Kat

Boho, Brides, City

Kat and I met on a VERY chilly January morning at Carluccios in the city. We talked about her past experiences with make up and hair styling- she wasn’t particularly enthralled with either of the given looks, and wanted a Make Up Artist and Hair Stylist that would help her reflect her personality, from both before and during motherhood.   …

  Kylie was the calm, down-to-earth, fabulously talented professional you want and need on the morning of your wedding! Right from the start, she was fantastic – reassuring, encouraging and she really does her research…creating a mood board so that you just know everything is going to be wonderful. Not only that, she worked her magic on my Mum (who …

Rosie was my youngest Bride ever! And my tallest- not relevant unless you’re 5ft 2 like myself 😉 ! This statuesque beauty got in touch as she wanted something very ethereal and very different for her wedding at the incredible Babington House to compliment her bespoke gown by Anita Massarella. We bonded over coffee, literature and a love of old …

Haniah

Oh, Haniah. My gorgeous, gorgeous Haniah. Where do I start? Our meeting was the 5th floor of Harvey Nicks and a little hasty! I also had to wrap my head around 4 days of wedding shooting; two mixed faith ceremonies, one western party and one single faith get together ( not pictured for religious reasons but you can find the …
