Bridal hair and makeup

This past Saturday was Carly's turn to marry Brad. I had so much fun working on these girls as they weren't afraid of makeup. The looks are a bit stronger than my usual style of makeup but I love it.
 Carly also completely changed her hair style to what we did at her trial. Her trial was a wet set fingerwaves with a textured bun. But after emailing each other after the trial we tought something with more softness would be the way to go. Her hair was quite long and fine so she opted for a faux bob based on a vintage influence, thus giving her alot more body and bounce. 
Photos are taken by me, makeup shoots have no photoshop or filters. 
Airbrush foundation was used on all the girls

My blossoming hobby, photography

The photography bug has bitten and I find I pick up my camera almost everyday. For now I see it as an extension to my job. I can document my work and have fun with it too. So look out for some pretty little mini styled beauty shoots hopefully soon. If you wish to follow me on this journey pop over to my new page  Bird On The Wall Photography
 Here are some more personal images I took this week of around our home

Handmade Bridal Hairpieces

I've been putting together (lots of hand sewing) a collection (well never ending) of amazing sparkly heirloom quality bridal accessories. Her is a little look at what you can expect. I will be uploading to my Big Cartel shop (link in the side bar)  Prices will be $140 and up. 
I also take custom jobs and can use your lace.
 Nothing but highest quality materials are used. Glass and swarvoski crystal beading, stunning appliqu├ęs and fabrics of silk and bridal lace.
