A couple of weeks ago I did makeup for a beautiful strawberry blonde bride and her ‘entourage’ of 2 bridesmaids, flower girl, mother-of-the-bride as well as grandmother-of-the-bride.
She’s booked out the entire Knorhoek Guest House for her wedding party. We totally took over the honeymoon suite and turned it into a ‘beauty parlour’ with hair dryers, brushes, makeup, you name it, all over the place. Luckily the Knorhoek staff are well trained and probably used to this, as they came in to clean up right after the bride left for ‘THE BIG EVENT’.
Angelique is the sweetest girl with nerves of steel. Her mother was completely stressed out while the bride calm and composed… until 1 hour before the service! Nerves took over…both excitement and stress of it all finally happening.
She looked absolutely gorgeous…real life fairy princess.
Her wedding colours were white & purple, which I absolutely loved, seeing that purple is one of my favourite colours.
I so enjoyed being part of her big fairy tail day.

I have recently joined the Little Pink Book Community as an “exclusive Little Pink Book supplier” and am very excited to see where this will take my business.
A couple of weeks ago Zel Archer & I decided to do a few fun outdoorsy nature location shoot.
For our first two shoots we went to Jonkershoek, just outside Stellenbosch.
I literally stood in the bushes doing the makeup. About halfway through a couple (around 10) kiddies from the surrounding farms decided to come and join us. It was so funny. They sat all around us watching us…for more than 30 min. They were mostly Xhosa speaking, I think, but every now and then we would just hear “sunscreen”, “makeup” etc. They probably thought we were really weird & a bit crazy. Why would 4 girls be in the middle of nowhere doing makeup…outdoors!
The shoot turned out really great. The one model were ‘fairy & whimsical’ like and fitted perfectly into the ‘foresty’ surroundings. The other model went for a ‘cow girl meets girl next door’ look.
