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.
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.
We are so pleased to finally be able to share some pictures of the lovely Stacey who was married at the Zimbali Fairmont Hotel in Ballito in May. Images by Stephen Railton
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.
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.

Here are some pictures of Heidi, our beautiful bride from a few weeks back.
We weren’t able to do a trial as I was called the day before the wedding, but with a bride who is as lovely as Heidi, creating a look for her big day was not difficult. Heidi has very fair skin and gorgeous strawberry blonde hair so I used muted shades and a nude lip to create a classic look.
Once again, congratulations Heidi, you made a beautiful bride and we wish you years of wedded bliss!
