Who Charlotte + Mike Church
WhereBy George, an industrial space in Kingsland (ceremony) + Hopetoun Alpha, where I had dreamed having my wedding since I first went inside years ago (reception)
Number of Guests 160

I said yes… at one of our favourite spots at Piha. Mike had planned the whole thing with fish and chips on the beach (except the takeaway shop was shut and we ended up with pizza). He’d bought the bubbles along and everything.

Our wedding style was… a bit of everything. We like the industrial feel, hence the warehouse space, but we love greenery, and flowers were always going to be a big part of the day. Food trucks and a caravan bar were how we included our love of food and drink.

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.

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.

Vintage Chic Bride

Hair & Makeup

Our vintage chic bride is one of the prettiest, and most accessible make-up trends for this season. Think of English rose, soft and romantic tones. Whether you pair this with a smokey eye or a natural face, this hue is the new nude for this season brides.

Classic Bride

Hair & Makeup

This might be a classic, but the low bun has really come back for this season among loose updos, soft chignons, and boho waves. This classic look is always a stunning an elegant way to frame the face paired with the seductive and timeless red lip.

Relaxed Bride

Hair & Makeup

Relaxed bride is exactly that think of effortless, natural, wavy, textured locks with a simple hair piece that is not fussy but pretty all the same. Well groomed brows and soft earthy tones are a must too pull off this look.
