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 in her lovely wedding dress. All make up was kept very natural and fresh.
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 :-) We then gave it more of a fashion look Finishing off with a more creative Egyptian look; Hair and make up - Amy Prifti Model - Faith Obae Photographer - Richard Maxim Stylist - Falcieri Designs
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.

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
