Getting Married in 2013 ?

OK, so you have probably worked out by now that my business is in Weddings...... So I turn on the news on the 1st of January 2013 for a report to be shared that NO ONE is getting married in 2013 because of its superstitious date!

Is this TRUE?
Are YOU getting married this year?
What is your opinion?

According to the news report many venues and businesses are offering special 'deals' to entice those getting married so that they don't postpone their wedding to 2014.

Are people REALLY this superstitious that the number 13 will bring bad luck to their marriage?

If I, for one was thinking about getting married over the next few years, I would probably bring the date forward and choose to get married in 2013 just to prove people wrong! - That a number will not affect how happy my marriage is, or the longevity of it.

And even if I did get married in 2013 and my marriage didn't last, could I really blame the number 13 for this? - surely marriages don't last for much more serious reasons than this!

As this article reports;  At the BBC

"Many superstitious people believe that getting married in 2013 is a bad idea, because they associate the number 13 with bad luck.

But with some wedding venues offering discounts, it could turn out to be a wise choice financially, as Sophie Van Brugen reports."

So.... are you getting Married in 2013?
According to reports, are you expecting discounts?

And what about Wedding suppliers like myself?
Are you a photographer/florist/wedding venue?  - Will you be offering couples a discount so that they can get married in 2013?

Also, have you already been affected by the number13 and have found yourself in the situation that you don't have as many weddings booked into your diary this year?

1950's hair and make up for secret cinema screening of Grease the musical

Recently I was contacted by two local girls who was going off for a secret cinema screening of Grease the Musical.  They asked if I could do their hair and make up 50's style so that they looked the part! I love doing hair and make up like this as it is so much fun.  I love any make up from the 1920's onwards as woman really knew how to style themselves and how to wear their make up with pride..... that and big red lips!

Art Nude Photo shoot

PLEASE NOTE, THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS NUDITY. What ever your opinion is on art nude photography, I believe that if it is done correctly, the result should be a beautiful artistic photograph celebrating the human form. I was employed by photographer Richard Maxim for a shoot with the gorgeous Faith Obae model where we was joined by Claudia of Falcieri designs. It was a full on day and we decided to finish off the shoot with these art nude looks; Claudia suggested that we use the floor of the studio to create these looks, her reasoning behind it being that Faith would not be limited to the positions that she could create and hold.  Seeing as she was free to move I really feel that this was so beneficial to how the finished looks ended up. I made the last minute decision to paint half of Faith's body using a purple aqua colour body paint by Kryolan  and I am so glad that I did as I feel it really adds an extra dimension to the photos. The photo above is my favourit
