Wedding Gallery


Describe your wedding look, hair & makeup, wedding dress, shoes, lingerie, jewellery and accessories.

My wedding colours were white. gold, green and floral aspects. I had a classic hair look, side bun with bottle green earrings. My make up was absolutely stunning, browns and golds, I don't think I have ever felt so pretty all thanks to Mare Muller Make Up Artist. I had a classic styled wedding dress, the top was from lace with a low back and mesh and the bottom was made from Georgette material with a short train. I had gold shoes with a gold bracelet and a lace garter. Defiantly something that stood out was my bottle green nails with a touch of gold, something different.
