A spectacular wedding in the Southern Highlands! Beautiful weather, delightful bridal party, fabulous photographer and unique story behind the bridal attire!

This wedding is something to be remembered in a different way as Jessica made her own bridal costume, the bridesmaids dresses and also the paper flowers and decorations.

A vintage theme was created with a soft difference in the hair, makeup and costume and it totally suits our beautiful bride.

Jessica had taken a trial with me and although it does not often happen, she changed her mind from that trial to the wedding day, but it all turned out well.

It was really important to Jessica that she chose a makeup artist who was local to the Southern Highlands. She said “Because I was researching from Sydney, it was difficult to get a lot of information from most websites that I visited.”

My website gave her all of the information required and she thought it had a fantastic gallery of hairstyles. Jessica was able to have her trial in Sydney. I was genuinely excited about trying things other than ‘classic’ wedding hairstyles, and created something very unique which suited the theme of her wedding.

Jessica appreciated my professionalism, creativity and willingness to come up with something original and unique! “At no time during our trial did I worry about things not turning out the way I wished, and on the actual day, you kept everyone, including myself, relaxed – there was no rushing about at all! You have a great knowledge of what works and made me look flawless with both my hair and makeup – a difficult task given my complexion – but you made it look extremely natural and made me ‘glow’.”

“I did not have to reapply my make up or touch up my hair at all during the day! It stayed on beautifully, which reflected well in our photos.”
