We're oh so very excited to share with you 5 amazing bridal looks, collaborated on by experts in the fashion and wedding industry. The creative mind behind the hair and makeup? Corina Barrett, who shares with us her years of experience as a professional hair and makeup artist in London. From bridal to editorial magazines, TV, fashion and runway - Corina's portfolio is impressive and goal-worthy! One of our latest #GirlBoss crushes worked with some amazing names on our featured shoot to inspire you with some absolutely magical styles... 

Bright lights in the wedding industry Bridal Hair and Make Up (the fabulous Corina Barrett), FayAndrea (flawless wedding photography), Annaliese Rivers (trending accessories), Lotus Floral Art (queen of flower crowns and dried florals) and Anoushka G. (dresses to die for) formed the formidable team on location in London, responsible for the collective shoot of hotly anticipated trends for the modern bride...
1. Wildflower Warrior 

This look puts a spin on the classic bohemian milkmaid braid, beloved by boho brides the world over! Keep it light if you're a fan of dancing with your hair down and make like a true golden girl: Dusky eyeshadow and luscious feathered lashes work beautifully together for fluttering those big, big eyes. A few wisps gently frame the face, whilst the hair sings with its crowning glory - a gorgeous wreath of dried flowers, slightly vintage, slightly DIY for an effortless form of natural beauty. A single pearl in each ear is all you'll need to polish this, with a just a hint of copper catching the light! 

2. New Age Vision 

Are you as strong as a shield maiden? Forward-thinking, progressive and ready for the ultimate babe - this punk style playfully toys with natural elements, accented by that stunning gold leaf hairpiece! Full of daring, darken the brow, contour your cheekbones, opt for a moody, dark shade on the eyes and bite the lip with a deep, deep berry. This screams Camden, ready to be worked by the alternative, headbanging bride! 

3. Vintage Beauty

Who's the fairest? Make like a fairytale for your happily ever after with this dreamy, swept-off-your-feet bridal look. Fancy yourself a pin-up? Let that classic, Old-Hollywood style beauty shine through, meeting Snow White half way for a fantasy match made in heaven. With sweeping, winged eye makeup, perfectly parted hair, delightful brows and lips as red as the rose, you won't need a magic mirror to tell you who's looking gorgeous. 

4. Greenery Goddess 

If you're going outdoors for your big day, get back to nature with a little eco-warrior chic! It's no secret that Greenery is BIG news in weddings, taking over as one of the hottest trends to follow. The team have worked their magic with this verdant vision: Simply dressed in white, with hair down in loose curls, a garland has been worked in just above the brow - this wreath echoes hand-fasting ceremonies at a festival, weaving together foliage, copper elements and small, white flowers. Less hunter, total earth-mother gatherer!

5. The Timeless Free-Spirit
Look heavenly and ethereal with a side-swept style that says beaches and barefoot. Here, we're seeing spirals for volume, whirling softness and total spontaneity - all that's missing are the shells... Beautifully designed, this style delivers if the wispy, care-free, natural look calls to you, just like the sea. A slight touch of sparkle comes from the silver, trailing hair piece - one that's getting us all starry-eyed and daydreaming! Use this for the crystal, bright, bright edge that bride's look for to dazzle on those starlit nights.   

Thank you so much to Corina and the girls for sharing this fashion-forward inspiration with us, we're in love with every single look! Which is your favourite?
