Beach wedding - Pretoria Wedding Make-up Artist

"I love you more than there are grains of sand on the beach, fish in the sea and waves in the ocean.."

When Simoné, my beautiful and talented partner-in-crime decided to have her wedding down at the coast, I knew that there would just be absolutely no way that I could not be there for her on her big day.  We have, after all, spent countless hours with brides, making them pretty for their big "I do's".  We've laughed together, cried together, smiled at beautiful moments together and I just knew I wanted to be the one to be there for her on her big day.

What follows are some of the stunning photo's of Simoné's small and intimate family wedding at the coast.  A true reflection of who she is and some captivating looks at her and Armand's love for each other.  Love you Simmi, I am so blessed to be working with you!!


Pretoria Wedding Makeup Artist - Annelie

When Annelie mentioned her venue, it was one that I had never heard of, but I was completely blown away by it.  Vivere is a beautiful and romantic wedding venue and will definitely count as one of my favourites from now on - especially from a make-up artist point of view. The bridal room is spacious and light and has a beautiful view over the dam. And it has aircon, which is an absolute MUST these days!

Annelie is exceptionally talented, and made the beautiful bridesmaid dresses and her very unique garter all by herself!  She looked amazing in her dress and the make-up really made her beautiful blue eyes pop.  Detoi photography took these breathtaking photo's of this special lady.

Lovestory - Pretoria Wedding Make-up Artist

She walked into my studio, bubbling with excitement. Carike is one of those sunny people who just lifts up your spirits when you talk to them, one of those that you find yourself smiling because of their infectious laughter and "joy de vivre". After her wedding Carike started her own business Crafty Cultures  where she is teaching people how to make cheese, kefir and all sorts of wholesome food in their own kitchens! Carike and Colyn got married at Moon& Sixpence and I absoultely love how June Joubert captured their lovestory.

Portuguese Style Wedding - Pretoria wedding Make-up artist

Daniela met Leonardo while they were both working for a cruise company and together they have travelled the world.  Her husband is originally from Brazil, so Portuguese was definitely the language that was most spoken at this wedding! They got married at beautiful L'aguila and Daniel West took these amazing photographs.  I just love his use of light!

Pretoria Wedding Makeup Artist | Quentin & Marilé

What a beautiful bride! I was fortunate enough to do Marilé's make-up on her wedding day. She is a natural beauty with these amazing dimples in her cheeks when she smiles.  I can totally see why Quintin fell head over heels in love with her. They got married at beautiful Woodlands Game Lodge and Laurentia E photography took these stunning photo's.

Urban chic

Not only is she one of my most favourite people in the whole world, but to me she is also one of the most beautiful!  Kim and Niko got married at the Rand Club in the middle of Johannesburg.  The club brings treasures and memories of an almost bygone era. Apparently it will be closed for refurbishment later this year, but I hope they manage to keep some of the oldschool charm.   Judith Belle took some amazing photo's - real urban chic portraits right in the middle of Jozi! It really was an absolutely amazing experience to be part of this occasion for these two special people!! Love you lots, my Kim!

Classic sophistication - Pretoria wedding make-up

Utmost attention to detail and absolute sophistication - that is how I will describe this her.  Corné lives and works in Chicago and had limited time in South Africa to plan this beautiful event. Back home in the US from a wonderful honeymoon in the Maldives (I was super jealous!), she sent me these beautiful pics!  They got married at the lovely Isiphiwo and  Stella Sassen took these beauties. Thanks for sharing these Corné, you were a beautiful bride!

Hollywood Vintage Glamour I Pretoria make-up artist

A while ago I did Pascal's wedding make-up for her, and this year I was lucky enough to get to do her make-up again - this time as a bridesmaid to her beautiful sister-in-law, Lelani.  Lelani has the most beautiful milk-white skin and gorgeous eyes - she has that certain ethereal quality that to me, personifies real oldschool Hollywood glamour. I was thrilled to see how Amoia Photography captured this unique beauty.
