Summer Wedding Real bride Karlie Vernon

We met with Karlie and the girls bright and early at the gorgeous heritage listed Royal Albert Boutique Hotel.  The sub penthouse rooms are incredible spacious and perfect for wedding hair and makeup preparations.

Karlie wanted very simple and natural makeup for herself and a fresh face is always in style.   There's no doubt Karlie is wearing eye makeup, but the subtle blend of neutral colours suits her perfectly. With a pop of liquid gold in the lash line and the inner corner this added brightness and sparkle to her eyes. 

All our bridal parties are given a gift certificate for permanent lash extensions of soft faux mink.  Not only will you look amazing on your wedding day but you can look stunning on your honeymoon without all the fuss.  Karlie’s lash extensions certainly added that extra drama and wow factor to the no makeup look.

‘Get tressed for success’...

Gorgeous Bridal up-styles for your wedding day hair are a sure way to achieve show stopping attention.  The choices were personal, non-traditional, feminine and simply gorgeous. This feminine chignon plays up wispy bangs and the voluminous style exudes ooh-la-la sophistication.
Half-up, half-down ‘dos will never go out of style Overall the texture makes for an angelic and effortless romantic look.



Thanks again to Helen McConnell Photography for the stunning photos

Real Hollywood Brides Wedding of Melika Siers at Tamborine Gardens

The lovely Melika first contacted Hollywood Brides about booking her Brisbane wedding hair and makeup in August 2012 for the 12/12/2013 which was a very popular date.
Melika resides in South Hedland in Western Australia so needed to book with a reputable well known company she could trust.

Melika also booked with one of our favourite photographers Helen McConnell Award Winning Photography who has put together this amazing slide show of the day.  Click on the link below to see start to finish photos from the day and yes we are in them :)

Over the 18 months in the lead up to the wedding Melika came to Brisbane a few times for events in which we did her hair and makeup for.  We came to really love Melika as she is such a beautiful, funny and easy going young lady.

Her wedding day was so much fun and her family were all just as lovely and funny.  We had seven beautiful ladies to get ready in the gorgeous setting of I-do House at Mt Tamborine.

If you are thinking of leaving your hair out it is always better to at least 
have some pinned back especially for an outdoor ceremony, as by the end 
of the day it can look very messy.  

If you are spending time in the sun in the lead up to the wedding be very careful 
not to get tan lines or even worse burnt. We can bronze your d├ęcolletage however 
prevention is always the best cure. 

Don't be afraid of colour, the bridesmaids had stunning blue dresses so we gave 
them smokey sea green and turquoise eyes with a nude lip.  With the Fijian heritage 
and gorgeous olive skin this really made the look pop.  

Melika's look tied in with darker olive green and gold with flawless water resistant airbrush makeup.  All the girls had full strip lashes for the ultimate WoW factor.

Here is the finished product... such gorgeous girls... Monique x
