The lovely Jo of 33Dowanhill gives us the lowdown and some insider secrets on getting that elusive skindeep glow!

This will vary for each individual but a simple routine should include cleansing, toning/acid exfoliation, serum and oil/moisturiser. To make it extra fun there is also a specific order for each of these products! Believe it or not there is actually science backing up the proper order in which to use your skincare products and how to make them more effective.  In simple terms this means that products should be applied based on their consistency.  Thin products first, and then heavier or thicker ones on top.

An incredible talent for creating light, airy & stylish images Edinburgh based Solen Photography is ran by the lovely Solen (go figure!) Partial to an 80s power ballad, a pub quiz and a bit of Wes Anderson she’s  a self confessed light chaser who shoots in an unobtrusive & natural way to create some artistic little treasures! 2015 was another year of feeling immensely privileged to be able to do something creative where people let you into one of the most important days of their lives. A massive thank you to all the couples I’ve been honoured to work with, to the suppliers and venues who’ve worked with me and looked after me. For me, it’s all about connections and grabbing the scattered sunlight…finding little moments and memories to keep safe. Sharing joy and keeping those we miss with us always. Forgetting everything else, living in the moment, nervous excitement, telling stories, starting an adventure…
