Lee & Richard

Lee and Richard from Mareeba were also married in Port Douglas yesterday at the St Mary's By the Sea chapel.

I did makeup for Lee, her two bridesmaids, her mum and the best man who was in fact a woman!

Wedding Dramas!

Alicia and Johhny were married today at St Mary's By the Sea Chapel in Port Douglas.

But the day wasn't without its dramas!

The bridal party is staying at the exclusive Bali Hai Retreat in the rainforest north of Mossman.

This morning the catering truck for their wedding reception took a turn for the worst and rolled off the road and down an embankment before coming to rest in a cane paddock...

The driver was taken to Mossman Hospital...

While the rest of the catering crew continued setting up under the marquee.

Unfortunately, the Emergency Department at Mossman Hospital is a venue which this bridal party from Brisbane and Sydney is fast becoming familiar with.

Earlier today one of Alicia's bridesmaids was anxiously awaiting news after her partner tripped over and had to be taken to the hospital for stitches. Could anything else go wrong! Let's hope not.

At least the hair and makeup went well...

All seven women looked fabulous and despite the day's drama, Alicia was the absolute picture of perfection and remained completely calm throughout.

Model Shoot

Indy model Chenoa has just moved to Cairns and she booked me to do her makeup for a studio photoshoot on the weekend. 

The best image will feature as a poster which is going to be sold and distributed across Australia.

I'll be sure to share the professional shots once I have them.

Teanna Williams

I met Teanna Williams in Port Douglas this morning.

The bride and five of her closest friends travelled up from Melbourne and all the way across the Tasman from NZ to share the special day.

Teanna chose a "natural" makeup look for her bridesmaids as the wedding was taking place outdoors at the Sheraton.

Congratulations Teanna!

Anita and Dave

Anita and Dave tied the knot in Cairns on Saturday the 28th of August.

Hi Abigail,
I have attached a couple of photos from the wedding. 
We had a great day.
Thank you once again for being a part of it and doing 
a fantastic job on my make up.
Kind regards,

Karen Azzopardi's Wedding Day

Well the big day has arrived and bride-to-be Karen Azzopardi looks absolutely beautiful!

We were all up bright and early to start the makeup at 7.30am . . . by 11am five women had been transformed.

Amy Adams is the photographer and she takes some great shots so I'll be sure to put the professional photos up once Amy emails them through to me.

Congratulations Karen and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Anette and Colin

Married on the beach at the Sea Temple in Port Douglas today, Anette and Colin are enjoying the luxury of the resort as they take a well earned break from their remote cattle station out west.

Anette has amazing eyes and lots of lovely long lashes so it didn't take much to make her look stunning.


Colin's lovely daughters made up the bridal party.


Congratulations Anette and Colin!

Michelle and Rick Bremner

Michelle and Rick were married in Cairns on the 1st of May 2010.

In a bizarre twist, Michelle booked me to do her makeup without realising we went to school together, so what began as a simple booking turned into a mini re-union.

When I arrived on the morning of Michelle's wedding day to do six makeup I was pleasantly surprised to learn that among the six would be Michelle's older sister Kirsten who was one of my high school teachers and also Stacey Coglan, a former student who was my House Captain.

All of Michelle's bridesmaids were lovely and it is was a very enjoyable morning.

Congratulations Mish and Rick!

Karen Azzopardi Bride-to-Be!

Bride-to-Be, Karen Azzopardi had her wedding makeup trial today.

I first met Karen when I did her makeup for Natalie Hardy's wedding at around this time last year.

Karen was one of Natalie's brides maids and now the roles have reversed.

Today at the trial we went for a look which makes Karen's eyes pop.

Karen is tieing the knot this Sunday.

Congratulations Sarah and Chris Graham

Sarah and Chris were married on the 10th of July.

I had the pleasure of doing Sarah's makeup and the makeup for her bridesmaids.

Don't their photos look great - Matthew Evans has done a fabulous job.

Kristy from Newcastle

Just finished doing makeup in Port Douglas for Kristy from Newcastle and her two lovely bridesmaids.

It's far from a perfect day for the wedding but the clouds did clear briefly.

So long as it doesn't rain Kristy should get some great photos.
