As a professional makeup artist, I have long been fascinated with the roaring 20s era for fashion, glamour and sophistication. I was eager to incorporate the perfect 1920s bridal look into my portfolio for brides dreaming of a great Gatsby-style wedding… Hayne House in Kent was my natural choice for such a shoot. The ‘Former Hunting Lodge’ at Hayne House was once home to Edward Simpson and his wife.
