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.

“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.

A Sneak Peak – Anthea – Makeup & Hair by Ali’s Makeup Station

When Anthea first walked into my studio for her bridal trial, I immediately thought my job is going to be so easy! With her flawless skin and infectious personality I knew this wedding was going to be lots of fun.  Anthea shared her story of how she met Hubby to be (Andrew) and her plans for her wedding.  Anthea chose a braided half hair up, with a very natural makeup palette of nudes and earthy tones to compliment her bright blue eyes.

The couple married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony in West Auckland at  Matua Valley Farm, followed by reception at Provenance Matua Valley. Cyclone Pam was very kind and the weather was just perfect!

The Lauren and Delwyn Project capture beautifully the details of their day.  The couple had some scenic pictures taken with their bridal party at the cliff top at Muriwai Beach. Congratulations to the newly wed Anthea and Andrew.
