Wedding at St Peter's Church, Offham
I had the pleasure of being invited to Fiona and Dom's wedding yesterday to provide hair and make up for the bridal party.
They got ready at Mill Laine Barns in Offham where they had a beautiful marque set up, and the church was just a 10 minute walk down from the barn....
The flower girl had a braid around her her hair with fresh flowers placed in it.
The bride had her hair pulled back into a low bun with a braid going back in to it.

Fiona and her mum, who also had her hair and make up done.

Both bridesmaids had their hair pulled back into a bun with twists at the sides and finished off with fresh flowers.

Other than the weather (it rained all day), a glorious day was had by all. This is such a lovely venue to get married and I wish Fiona and Dom all the best.

PLEASE NOTE - THIS POST CONTAINS NUDITY
Leading on from the art nude photo shoot with Photographer Richard Maxim, one of the required looks was based on an Egyptian theme.
Richard asked if we could aim towards a traditional Egyptian look, based on stonework;
I love the finished photos :-)
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 favourite from the selectio…
I picked up the telephone one day only to have an overexcited photographer scream at me.... 'Pack your bags, we're going to the Maldives'
So I did what she said!
The team was an all female team - photographer, model and me (make up artist, hair stylist and stylist) - plus the photographer's mum (she came along for the ride! - Hazard 1!)
Hazard 2 was when it came to packing - apparently I had no space in my suitcase to pack clothes for me as it would be full of clothes for the shoot we were doing! still, we packed suitcases full of fashion clothes loaned to us by various fashion houses, fashion students etc and wore all of our own clothes on the plane - A bonus is that you loose around 2 stone once you have taken all your clothes off once you have arrived!
We landed in Male, caught a speed boat (at this point we didn't even know which island we was going to) and got off at a very small idyllic Island in the Maldives baby!
