On Australia Day I headed out to Branell Homestead bright and early to take care of some of my most loyal clients. I’ve had the pleasure of looking after Emilly and her family for many years now, and FINALLY her Wedding day was here (yes, Emilly was an organised Bride and booked her Makeup Artist well in advance!).
As expected, Emilly and her girls greeted me with beautiful smiles and laughter. It was a wonderful and relaxing morning (a little warm) but luckily they could all relax in air conditioning!
Emilly, as always it was such a pleasure to be there with you at yet another important milestone in your life. I wish you and Mark every happiness in your happily ever after!
Venue: Branell Homestead

And here’s what she had to say about her perfect day…
Favourite moment of the day would have to be cheesy of course!! Seeing mark for the first time walking down the isle with my Dad.
Funny moments… My veil came out as we walked into the vestry AND I put marks ring on the WRONG HAND!! Personal touches to our day, I got to wear my mums veil that was very special to Me.
Our bridal party may have been big but they were easy choices!! The people who were always there for us as close family of friends. Tips would be to choose those who mean the most… whether you see them every day or on a now and then basis.
My dress…. I actually went to Spurling Bridal and Formal wear to order a dress I had chosen but had not seen in over 5 months…. walked up the stairs to try it on and a gown (Edwina by Henry Roth) was hanging on a rack and she caught my eye!! I went on trying my original gown on but couldnt stop looking at Edwina!! I had to try her on… as soon as I was dressed it was an automatic yes… I didnt want to take it off! She was ordered that day while Mark was waiting downtstairs.
My makeup service was fantastic as always!! I wouldnt recommend anyone other than Tyneale, and we wouldn’t even THINK about using anyone else for any occasion!! It stayed on beautifully all day!! No touch up’s required!! Although I should have listened and re applied my RED lippie….the day is just so busy I completely forgot and it still looked great!!
Tips for future Brides… Be calm!! Mark may not have thought I was calm… I tried and everyone I spoke to told me how relaxed I was considering I was getting married in 3 weeks or even 3 days!! Don’t tell everyone your big plans… if something doesn’t go EXACTLY to plan…. only you and your team know!!
