Monica Van Staden - 28 March 2013

March was a busy month indeed!( As it always is every year! )Here are the rest of Monicas' pics.
Our inspiration was Kim Kardashian. Monica had the ideal hair for this look and I set it in pin curls whilst I was doing her makeup to ensure the curls last. Make up was full and dramatic and individual lashes really showed off her beautiful green eyes.

Hair Inspiration

What do you think of these bridal hairstyles? I am not a huge fan of stiff upstyles and just love these two styles for their softness!
( Although I daresay the clean,  neat smooth bun is also making a comeback!)

Do you like these pics?


Tanith Coutinho - Fri 22nd March 2013

Well- I can say that it is always a delight to hear these words from a client. Being the perfectionist that I am - this kind of thing helps me sleep at night! ha ha ha... I wish I was joking but I'm not. I take myself very seriously but then a Wedding Day is a very serious day no????
 This is what Tanith had to say, and her beautiful pics are below her kind words.

"Hey Donna,

Once again I would like to say a HUGE thank you, seriously, your work is amazing, I felt like a princess and you made me look like one!! We all loved you and everyone was complimenting me on how good I looked. My Mom and bridesmaids looked absolutely gorgeous. I will definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking for their make up to be done!

Attached are some wedding pics as well as a pic from my boudoir shoot I did after I came for my make up trial!!

Keep well

Destination Wedding - Thailand

I recently had the pleasure of doing  a destination wedding in Thailand at Santhiya resort on the island Koh Phagnan. Possibly the most beautiful wedding destination I have ever seen! Breathless beach scenery and calm turquoise sea, this is one wedding I will remember for a long time :) Despite the torrential downpour and lighting and thunder just hours before the vows, the sky opened up and the sun came out just in time for Meags and Llewellyn to say their vows. A very special day indeed. These are just a few sneak photos from UK Based Photographer Ilze Du Preez from Shot girl Productions. Will post more soon! Here is also her blog addy:

Tracy Nel - 2 Feb 2013

The very talented lady who took these lovely and PERFECT images of Tracy Nels wedding is Karen Bergh. I did Tracys makeup and hair and also her beautiful bridesmaids makeup. Lovely girls and a total pleasure to work with! :)
