Bridal Magazine Cover – Wales Photoshoot

bridal magazine photoshoot cover Wales

Coco Bella Bride is delighted to have our bridal magazine photo shoot featured on the cover of Your South Wales Wedding Magazine.


It’s especially exciting because we produced this bridal photo shoot in Wales.

To celebrate the 1st Anniversary of  a charity that is very close to our hearts here at Coco Bella.

Pritchard & Moore is the first charity bridal boutique where ALL profits go directly to help fund life saving research at Cancer Research Wales.

Having lost my own beloved mother to that vicious disease I wanted to help support this charity.

As a bridal boutique it’s a perfect match for us at Coco Bella.

Bridal Designers such as Welsh designer Stephanie Allin, Ellis Bridal, Jonathan James and Ronald Joyce, to name but a few, have donated stunning wedding gowns to Pritchard & Moore.

It was also a chance to support the wonderful Alison George who manages the charity bridal boutique for Cancer Research Wales.

Alison is like the ‘bride whisperer’ – she can take one look at you and know exactly what gown would make you look fabulous.

She’s also hilariously funny and always makes me laugh.




I got to work with some of my favourite Welsh wedding suppliers for this shoot, including the wonderful Maxine Howells Photography.

Maxine knows how to capture every bride’s best angle on their wedding day.

Not only is Maxine super talented but she also has a wicked sense of humour.

It was her camera lens that captured these perfect moments.

We were blessed with a secret location on a fabulous farm in the heart of the Welsh Valleys.

We couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous backdrop.


The lovely Lisa from The Urban Flower Studio  is one of the most creative and exciting florists in Wales.

She crafted the exquisite bridal bouquet, floral accessories and stunning garland for the horse.

Together the brilliant Love From Ellie and fantastic Lumi Event Design brought charming rustic bridal style to life, in the barn of this working farm and stable.

Both so original, beautiful and quirky – I especially adored the fabulous armchair.

Our groom was dressed in a perfect rustic waistcoat with matching tie and Italian blue trousers by the style leaders in Welsh groomswear at Dyfed Menswear.





Our stunning bridal-inspired video was shot by wedding photographer and videographer  Glyn Rainer.

Glyn is hugely talented, rising star who also works in film and television.

You should snap him up for your wedding asap.

I also want to say a HUGE thank you to the fantastic Clair Rawlings of Lab Class Model Management, who ‘loaned’ us our gorgeous models India and Charley for the photoshoot.

And a big HUG for my son Will, who agreed to be the ‘groom’.

I know his grandmother would have been so very proud of him.

I hope you love these images as much as we do.


So if that gorgeous designer wedding dress you’ve been lusting over would blow your budget don’t worry.

Now you can visit Pritchard & Moore where the dress of your dreams will help save lives.




How to get Beautiful Hair on Your Wedding Day with Hair Extensions

Hair extensions can be a bride’s best friend.

If you’re dreaming of long luscious locks on your wedding day but your hair is more ‘blah’ than a wet Sunday then it’s time to consider hair extensions.

Extensions give you longer, thicker, fuller hair that looks completely natural and gives you so many more OPTIONS and choice for your wedding day hair style.

As well as adding length they are also a terrific way to add volume and body to fine and thinning hair and they work for all face shapes and all ages.

And depending upon the type of extension you choose you can have stunning long hair for your hen night, your wedding day and your honeymoon as well as for up to 6 months after your big day.

You just need to know your ‘wefts from your clip-ins’ and with a little insider knowledge you can get your dream bridal hair style for your wedding day.

  • Human Clip-in Hair

Clip in extensions are temporary and just as the name suggests they can be clipped into your own hair whenever you like.They are ideal for your wedding day if you don’t want the commitment of longer-wear fitted extensions.

It’s important to choose the right bridal hair stylist who’s experienced with fitting extensions to avoid the tell-tale bumps in the hair that can be caused by the extension clips.

You need to choose a bridal stylist that can place your clip in extensions strategically, just where you need them for your individual bridal style, to create length and thickness that looks natural.

You need to match your clip in hair extensions to your own natural hair shade. If you are looking to change colour then do so before you purchase your clip in extensions in order to get a true match.

Curled and waved styles are perfect for blending your clip in extensions with your natural hair and look beautiful on your wedding day.

Coco Bella Bride offers you a bespoke and couture range of clip in extensions that are individually tailored to your natural hair and your bridal hair style for your special day.


  • Synthetic Hair

There are more affordable synthetic options but you have to choose carefully as most do not tolerate heated styling over 120 degrees.

Synthetic hair tends to be the more detectable and can sometimes be difficult to blend with your natural hair.

Hair Extensions offer your endless choice for your bridal hair style.

Hair Extensions offer your endless choice for your bridal hair style.


Semi permanent hair extensions are more discreet and virtually undetectable, long-lasting and can be styled just like your own natural hair.

Semi-permanent hair extensions are applied to your own hair ‘strand by strand’ and last for many months with the right  aftercare. They give you endless choice when choosing your perfect bridal style for your wedding day.

NEVER skimp on the quality of hair you buy or the fee for an experienced professional to fit your hair extensions.

ALWAYS have a consultation to decide which method of application is best for your hair type and lifestyle.

Do your research as there are an awful lot of people out there who are not qualified hairdressers and have taken a one day course and are advertising their ‘services’ – you want to avoid them at all costs!

Hair Extensions give you extra length, fullness and volume for your wedding day

When should I have my semi-permanent wedding hair extensions fitted?

Ideally 2-3 weeks prior to the wedding day.

This will also give you time to get used to wearing them and caring for them

If you are planning to have colour make sure you have that done first so that your hair extension specialist can do a perfect colour match for your.

Extensions do take extra effort but Coco Bella Hair extensions will last up to 8 months with the right products and maintenance. And you will get a tailored plan for aftercare from Coco Bella with everything you need to keep your hair looking fabulous during your honeymoon and long after.

How much will it cost?

The price will depend upon the amount and length of hair extensions you will need to create your bridal hair style.  We will create a bespoke plan for you with a tailored guide to best type of extensions for you so you can have the beautiful bridal hair style of your dreams on your wedding day.
