Ella Feb 2 2018

Ella,

a beautiful fine haired brunette.

Like most with fine hair she was after a lovely look of volume in her style.

Also one which was elegant.

We had a trial a few months earlier and I thought the addition of some hair extensions to bulk out her hair in the nape area would complete her look.

Her style was a textured low chignon with a twisted and draped section to finish it.

Lastly was the addition of a few cream roses. Her final look was stunning.

Kylie & Bryn 31/12/17

Kylie & Bryn presently live in Darwin where they are seriously involved in making a difference in the community.

On New Years Eve it was their time to shine here amongst their friends and families.

Make up artist Samantha Buhl & I headed to Mangonui bright and early to get Kylie’s wedding party ready. With seven to get ready for ‘first look’ photos it was pretty busy.

Here’s some of what was captured by Avodah photo & cinema

Amy 2017

Amy booked with me in 2015.

A few life things happened along the way but we got to October 2017 in the end.

Wow, a very memorable day it was & wonderfully emotional as well.

I love this type of wedding. It was particularly well thought out, with lots of references to those who had enabled this couple to come together on this day.

Much loved was shared with everyone involved.

I had nine people to do hair for, Amy our Bride, four Bridesmaids, two Mums, one junior Bridesmaid & two Flower girls. A big day but all flowed well.
