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.

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.

Heidi – Bridal

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!

Sharon – Bridal

Sharon is a beautiful woman and made an even more beautiful bride on her wedding day. Helping her to create a classical yet slightly  muted look for her and her five bridesmaids was a lot of fun!
You will recognise Lauren, a previous bridal client of mine, in Sharon’s bridal retinue.

Sharon married in Ballito, just outside of Durban, on The Rain Farm. We achieved a very classical look for Sharon, keeping her eyes bright and her lip a soft pink, letting her natural beauty radiate.
For her bridesmaids we smoked up the liner but kept it clean and I used a slightly mauve neutral lip.

We were very lucky with the weather too as there was no harsh sunlight and neither was there any rain. The misty hills surrounding the venue were lush and green providing the most beautiful backdrop for Sharon’s photos.
