This is Joanne
Joanne got married on April 1st at Boship Lions Farm Hotel
Yep, you heard that right - April 1st, April fools day! I think this is my first ever April fools day wedding in the 13 years that I have had my bridal hair and make-up business.
There was no foolery at this beautiful wedding. Joanne looked amazing and it was a joy to be a part of her wedding day with her gorgeous family.
Those of you who know me, know that I LOVE a good wedding shoe and Joanne's are absolutely no exception. Just look how amazing these shoes are. I want a pair for every day wear!
I carried out a trial for both Joanne and her mum a couple of months before the wedding. Both ladies are natural beauty's who don't wear a lot of make-up so were slightly anxious but my trial put them at ease, knowing that I had taken time to listen to how they would like to look for the wedding day and achieving their perfect look. I love making people feel great about how they look and in return this creates a confidence about them.
Even Joanne's daughter got in on the action and enjoyed having her hair done. She was so cute and really well behaved for the entire morning.
Joanne and her bridal party all looking stunning and ready for their perfect day ahead.
I love a gorgeous spring bouquet - I got married in the Spring myself and the colours of all the lovely spring flowers always make a beautiful bouquet.
....... You may think I could be exhausted from all the morning's fun but now I get the privilege to have a little nosey around and take photos of all the little gorgeous wedding details;
Big Love lights and the wedding cake - surely a must for all weddings
Sweetie cart, reception table layout and top table all checked out in a beautiful rustic style with gorgeous spring flowers
Rustic hearts and post box for special written memories of their special day - How amazing are these?
And as for Boship Lions Farm Hotel, I can safely say that there is no other place like it at all.
As you drive into the Hotel, you are met by two lion statues painted white and gold.
There are many animal statues in the forecourt and around the grounds of the hotel as well as many small lakes/
As the name would suggest, there is a farm on site with emu's, alpacas and plenty more animals. The site really takes your breath away.
I love the swan pedalo boats that can be found on a few of the lakes
You will see ducks and geese walking around freely
And to top all of that..... get a load of this car!
The car belongs to the owner of the hotel who was around all morning making sure that the day was perfect for Joanne. His attention to detail was amazing and he was extremely thoughtful for the entire morning. I have never experienced this kind of wonderful treatment elsewhere and it really felt like he couldn't do enough for Joanne on the day which, in turn made her feel very special. What more can you ask for on your wedding day?!
Wishing Joanne all the best, keep in touch! :-)

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
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
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.
