The Wedding: A December Bride!

December is the busiest month in a year because of the Christmas season. Most couples would have their wedding schedule before the “Ber” (Sept – Dec) months to avoid traffic, year end mall sales, family reunion, parties and all other stuff happening during this season. For many, inviting relatives and friends is a challenge since most are busy doing shopping, vacations and family get together. But my client took a brave step and opted to have their special day on the 28th of  December. The plan was a success! Their closest friends and relatives were all their and gave their support to the couple. All enjoyed and had so much fun witnessing as God joined them as one.

It was a memorable experience because I was able to witness their most joyous and heart warming moments as they exchanged vows. During the reception, the couple showed off their talents as they performed and danced for their guests. It was really nice to see newlywed couple enjoying and having fun on their wedding day. Here are some of the photos taken while I was doing her hair and makeup before the wedding ceremony:

I always forget to take a photo of the client before I do the makeup. Good thing she reminded me to take a picture of her so she can see the “Before and After” shots. Most wouldn’t want their pictures taken without any makeup on! She’s really oozing with confidence and that’s what makes her really gorgeous!

All products used are waterproof that’s why even after dancing for an hour the bride still looks stunning.

One Lovely Wedding

I really love weddings! It gives a moment of peace, love and joy. I was so lucky that I became part of this lovely couple’s most special day. The bride wanted a look that will just enhance her beautiful features. I decided to use Make Up Forever’s HD Primer and Face and Body Liquid Foundation no. 34 and then for her eyes I used this gorgeous Stila”s In the Moment Eye Shadow Palette for a more natural and fresh look.

I enjoyed working with this couple. I get to see they’re wacky and most intimate moments during their e-session until their big day!

Loving Veejay Floresca’s Creations!

I had the privilege to work with the glam team! I received an sms message from the ever so gorgeous model, Farah Ramos, and asked me if I would be interested to do her hair and makeup for a collaboration shoot. I didn’t think twice and I immediately said yes.

She introduced me to her friends, Loi Villarama (a fabulous stylist) and RV Mitra (Super great photographer), and then they showed me some pegs of the look they want for the shoot.

On the day of shoot, I saw the most elegant and extravant gown ever! These gowns were created by Veejay Floresca, a famous designer in Manila. I really had a great time working with these great people and I look forward in working with them again.

The Floresca Collection!
