Kristin – Bridal

Here are some pictures from Kristin’s wedding to Royce in Pietermaritzburg. These gorgeous photos are courtesy of MAD Photo & Design.

Kristin was looking for a very natural, classic makeup look that would not age in photographs. This look was easy to achieve with such a gorgeous lass, and those big baby blues!

We wish Kristin and Royce all of the very best for their future.

Brenda – The Boathouse Ballito

Here are some pictures of a wedding I did in Ballito.
Brenda was truly one of the most relaxed brides I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
A South African girl working and living in London, she came home to celebrate her marriage on the North Coast at the beautiful Boathouse in Ballito.

#YouLookDisgusting

This is something that hits home for me because I suffered with acne in my early 20’s. Some of the comments that people made were ill-informed and downright cruel. Of course, makeup became my self-defence weapon and it wasn’t long before I wouldn’t leave the house without it.

This was a large part of the reason I qualified as a therapist and makeup artist, so I could learn to manage my skin, get to the root of the problem and begin the healing process armed with the right tools and information. I am now free from acne but it did leave its mark oh my psyche. If you would like some advice or help from someone who knows what that struggle feels like, please leave a comment or send me a message via the contact form on this site.

In response to bullying and shaming, I have this to say: Be kind to unkind people, for they are the ones who need it most.

 

Christine – Bridal

On an overcast and misty morning, I headed to Calderwood Hall in the Natal Midlands for Christine’s wedding. A more beautiful setting one could not wish for, especially when the mists are rolling in over the lake and the sun is just peeking through the clouds.

Christine was an absolute delight to work with and someone I now call friend. For her bridal look we decided on low key glamour, as she is very sporty and doesn’t wear makeup often so we wanted her to feel comfortable yet special on her wedding day. We used a palette of silver and grey to show off her blue eyes and finished off with a blush lip.

Claudia – Bridal

Claudia has to be one of the most relaxed brides I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She has a quirky sense of humour, is poised, kind and, as you can see from her photos, beautiful.
Her wedding to Malcolm was a romantic affair set in the grandiose and fairytale venue of Camelot in Hillcrest.
Claudia is very sporty and was concerned that she did not want to look like anyone other than herself on her wedding day, and we achieved this by creating a neutral palate with a soft grey smokey eye and nude shimmery lip.

We wish Claudia and Malcolm everything of the best as they embark on their journey as husband and wife.
