Bourjois NZ Launch Event

So one Monday in July we found ourselves five stories high in an inner city Auckland building overlooking the sparkling sea, whilst late afternoon sun poured through the windows. Glasses of champagne were promptly passed our way, which we sipped whilst getting some models made up with Bourjois Catwalk.

Our Makeup Station Team made up three models, each wearing a specific look created with Bourjois products. The natural look was tres chic. The bold lip, with its rich redness, so sophisticated. And the smokey eye was superb.

Amy & Matt – Summer Wedding

Amy & Matt – Matiatia, Waiheke Island

Wow, wow, wow!  Amy and Matt’s stunning summer wedding on Waiheke Island was one to remember (For many reasons)  Firstly Hubby and I couldn’t  make the wedding as baby decided to come early! I was lucky that our dear friends were very understanding and of course Amy was very happy to have my team step in and make her beautiful for her big day. Amy wanted a classic fresh look for hair and makeup to go with her modern gown. The bridesmaids were half hair up with neutral makeup as the embellished gowns were a statement piece.

Amy is incredibly down-to-earth and I was lucky to yet again work with not only my friends, but the bridal party was just as awesome. With a long list of things to love about this wedding some of the highlights were the getting ready venues (oh the views, oh the space!), the super-stylish bridal party and the stunning location.   Best wishes to an awesome couple.

Teri & Sam

Teri and Sam got married at their family farm in Auckland on the 5th of December 2015. The ceremony was set up just outside of the house and the reception was held in a big shed that had to be cleaned from a tractor and heaps of other stuff just a few days prior to the Special Day. Big job…and very well done. The wedding set us was just breathtaking!!
Teri wanted very natural makeup to accentuate her stunning beauty – we opted for soft peachy tones with a simple updo.  The bridesmaids had subtle pink makeup tones to compliment the soft blue dresses.

Many thanks to the creative team who helped make their day amazing!

“Within a few short months, they both knew they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together…”.  Ruby and Robert wed October 2015

Ruby and Robert got married at the Five Knots.  A romantic choice, not just because of it’s panoramic views of Auckland Harbour and Rangitoto Island, but this was where Robert’s parents got married, back in the day when it was still called Romford’s. The weather cleared just in time for the bridal party photos at Michael Joseph Memorial Park  – you cant even tell that it had been pouring down earlier in the day!

Their dog Lilly even made an appearance in the wedding photos!

Traditional Vintage Styled Shoot

Lisa Foster photography approached me to work with her on a Traditional Vintage Styled Shoot. We envisioned mixing more traditional, vintage elements with updated contemporary, feminine touches. Blush pink tones, gorgeous gems and glam metallics added wow factor to  base of more traditional floral’s and earthy, rustic elements.

Here are a few of the looks I created.
