Wedding at The Shelleys Hotel in Lewes

And the bride wore Superwoman trainers!

On the outside, Shelleys doesn't look that big a place, but don't judge a book by its cover!
I was booked on the 31st January to do hair, make up and nails for Maria's Wedding day.  She was staying at the Shelleys hotel the night before, which is always a bonus for me as I can arrive any time I want knowing that the bride will already be there.

It doesn't take me long to rearrange the room so that I can set up.... Nails first

Make up set up at the lovely dressing table.

One of the reasons why I enjoy being a part of someones wedding day is that I get to be a little bit nosey! - A close up of Maria's Tiara

Maria isn't really a 'bouquet' type of person so she had these lovely wrist corsages made for her
And then she pulled our her Wonder woman pumps!
I love how brides are sourcing alternative shoes for their wedding day.  And these wonder woman pumps are comfortable as well as being funky.  Maria added the bridal laces herself.
Once I have painted Maria's nails, using a lovely Shellac Grape colour, It was time do do her hair and make up. - Both of which had already been decided on at her trial 3 weeks earlier.

Wedding pumps fit nicely under that dress.

Was I had finished Maria's hair, make up and nails I helped her to get into her beautiful wedding dress, nice and tight and then said my congratulations and goodbyes before having a cheeky peek downstairs;

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! Here, with the girls permission are the before and after shots of them.

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
