Bridal magazines are one my little vices, I'm not getting married, or even engaged but because I work with so many brides I want to keep up to date with trends. Yes, I like looking at the pretty dresses, amazing venues and mouth watering food but most of all, I just love seeing people so happy. I think a wedding day really celebrates the couple's love and their honest and open commitment to one another. I mean, why else would us girls go to the trouble of organising that one day for 12 months, increase stress levels to the point of hair pulling and worry about what colour ribbon is going around our bouquets? I guess we might also do it because we get to play dress ups and wear the gown of our dreams. Whatever the reason, your wedding day is important. All brides want everything to be perfect. 

A wedding that I recently worked on seemed to be a dream day for the bride, Bec. She was calm, relaxed and so not a bridezilla. I got to work from a hairdressing salon which made my life so easy with an abundance of mirrors and electricity plugs at every turn. The sun was shining and all Bec wanted was to look like herself with a touch of glamor. It turns out she didn't need much help with the most amazing skin and fantastic dress, she really turned heads and apparently that of a bridal magazine too: Real Weddings. The issue will be out in November featuring her wedding. The pictures speak for themselves of why Bec & Robbie were more than deserving of being featured in a glossy mag. Thank you for having me be part of your special day...

On another note, I felt a little lost and was just feeling a little uncertain, but friends are amazing. They're the family you get to choose, the people you turn to when you need a hug, shoulder to cry on, make you laugh till your tummy hurts, tell you that the dress really does make your bum look big  or just someone to share a cupcake with.I stumbled over a picture while look for inspiration and it sums up perfectly how i felt about the weekend and all my questions and uncertainty seemed to melt away as the sun came beaming down on my face. Hope your weekend was filled with friends, laughs and a touch of hope...

No sleep, early start, styled dresses, accessories to match, make up to suit, hot rollers & hairspray, an inspiration board, running sheet, yup! definitely sounds like a photo shoot. It was a cold Sunday but luckily enough the shoot was indoors at a friends home. Three hours of make up and hair later, the posing began. I found inspiration by trawling through bridal magazines, the colour white and all the beautiful brides I'd already worked with. I jumped at the chance of working with an amazing photographer who does it as a hobby. The belief that he would take as natural posing photos as possible was brought to life when the girls ate cupcakes, threw petals, laughed in front of a turquoise shed and sat on the floor. I couldn't have asked for a better set of photos and the experience of working in all aspects of hair, make up and styling makes me eager to work on so many more shoots. Thank you to everyone involved because without you, I would be photo-less and all too dull.

On another note, I just wanted to mention where these delicious cupcakes were made with love and passion. I can't tell you how much I adore Sheryl, a dear friend who started her own little boutique cupcake store after losing her job. Cupcake central was born and it's growing up fast, please check her out here...Dreams come in so many different forms, shapes and pathways so not only is she an inspiration to me but there are so many others hoping to find such courage. Admiration and joy is what I see when i bite into her cupcake. Yum.

As I read through the previous blogs, I find myself strangely asking where have i been? It's so funny that a little more than a year has passed and i have not blogged. Why? Just because i haven't had the time and to be quite honest, I lost sight of what I was really wanting out of this career. It's all well and good to try and be a make up artist, hair stylist but if you're just wondering aimlessly around and trying to do it without a won't be going anywhere fast.
I'm back now, was lost, wondering aimlessly; my ideas and dreams have found their way home now.I have plans banked up and can't wait to finally put them to practice.
What I love right now is the endless possibilities. Miss Aimmey has now launched and I have worked tirelessly on my website and photos that I can't wait to share
