On saturday I had the pleasure of looking after Tarah and her Bridesmaids, usually at some point of the preparation things become rushed… or nerves start to flutter. But not today. Everyone was completely chilled out and relaxed, it was great to see Tarah really enjoying every moment of her day.
Tarah’s style for the day was ‘elegant’ and black & white. So we channeled this theme through the makeup keeping it fresh but still defined. For Tarah’s Wedding Day look I contoured and highlighted her cheek bones to give beautiful shape and ‘glow’ to her already lovely bone structure. We gave the definition to the eyes, shimmer to the lid while graduating depth of colour through the crease to the outer corner and blending for that soft and smoky finish. Defined liner for both top and bottow lash line completed the eyes. I believe the eyes are the gateway to the soul, and what better occasion then your Wedding Day to have them perfectly framed. The Bridemaids wore a similar smoky eye using matte shades and a stronger cheek colour to give them a beautiful flush against their black gowns.
As well as a follow up on Tarah’s big day, she has ever so kindly allowed me to include their vows, which they wrote themselves. I love how Bride’s add little modern touches to their day. Such a personal touch. I’m sure you will find Tarah’s both realistic and a little funny.
Thank you Tarah for chosing me to take care of you all on such a special day, it really was a complete pleasure to share the journey with you. You all looked absolutely stunning and I wish you every happiness in your happily ever after.

Who did you chose as your Wedding suppliers?
My mum did alot of it cake courses and made the cake. My Aunty is a florist and I googled ‘Wedding centre pieces’ and found the Wedding Shop in Chermside.
Would you recommend them to future Brides?
Definitely, they have some beautiful things.
What did you think of the makeup and service you received?
The make up was perfect, I honestly wouldn’t change a single thing, everyone complimented it, the bridesmaids were more then impressed and it was perfect for the entire day.
What advice would you give to future Brides?
Don’t spend more then $10,000 on your weddng, it’s not how the wedding looks, it’s the day itself spend time with all the guests, dont spend 4 hours getting photos, you only need one of you and your partner, make sure there is lots of food and beer and a photobooth to keep people occupied and the day will be perfect. We went WAY over our budget and could have been set up in a new house and still be a happy married couple.
