Bridal Makeup Artist of the Year 2022


Wedding Industry Awards Bridal Makeup Artist of the Year – Mid North Coast & Northern Rivers.

Thank you so much to all my beautiful Brides that nominated me for Bridal Makeup Artist of the year. It’s an honour to receive this award. The last two years have been extremely challenging for everyone in the Wedding Industry, and the last 12 months have been personally challenging for me, so I feel incredibly grateful to receive this recognition for my work.

I have been blessed to work with the most beautiful Brides and I want to thank you all again for choosing me to be a part of your special day, it really is an honour and I’m so grateful for your continued support.

Bookings

Bookings update. Last Spring I was fully booked from August through to November. Thanks to the Covi-d lockdowns I only ended up doing two Weddings during that period 😥 A lot of those weddings postponed to Autumn this year, so for the first half of this year I have been run off my feet! I have limited availability for the remainder of the year, so if you are getting married in Spring 2022, please get in touch.
Thank you for all of your support.

Hello!

Hi my name is Nicky and it’s been 18766 days since my last post.
Spring 2021 had a very March 2020 feel about it. What was a fully booked spring wedding season, ended up being a very quiet end to the year. As it turns out I was forced into a period of rest, so I decided to take a break from social media as well. I know how much you have all missed me – and all this quality content, but don’t despair, I still have plenty of beautiful images to share with you from my gorgeous brides from last year as well as some stunning photoshoots.

Kayli

My last portfolio piece before lockdown 😢 This look was inspired by the “Midnight Max’d” look in the @raemorrismakeup Makeup Masterclass book. The grey and silver tones fighting against the chocolate brown of Kayli’s eyes to enhance them and really make them pop!

Oh how quickly things can go from ‘flat out like a lizard drinking’ to ‘dont remember how to makeup’. Thanks to Covi-d and the good ol lockdownaroony I have had a number of Wedding postponements for the upcoming spring wedding season 😞 I really feel for my Brides that have had to make the tough decision to postpone their special day.
Unfortunately I have been unable to accommodate a lot of my postponed Brides on their chosen date next year as I’m already booked. This is extremely disappointing for me and I’m sure for my Brides as well. I understand we are all in the same boat, but I can’t help feeling defeated at this point.

Lara & Dylan

The absolutely stunning Lara on her Wedding Day earlier this year, 12321 #numbersgal
I love everything about Lara’s look for her special day – soft, elegant, natural and timeless. It matched Lara’s personality perfectly, one of the sweetest, most beautiful humans you’ll ever meet. Lara’s gorgeous hair was styled by the lovely @withabbyrowe . It was a pleasure to spend the morning with Lara and her beautiful bridesmaids.
Side note, if you are after some awesome hair accessories head over to @siriusbylara, not only gorgeous, but talented as well 😍

If you are after some “Real Wedding” inspo, head over to the Yamba Weddings website, they have a real weddings section showcasing the beautiful Yamba area. Here’s a snippet from a recent interview I did with them.

“What do you love so much about being part of someone’s wedding day?

It’s an honour to be asked to be a part of a Brides wedding day. To be trusted to make the Bride look her very best for such a special day. I love the entire vibe of a wedding day. The excitement, the nerves, the flowers, the dresses, the hair, the moment when everything comes together, the squeals, the laughter, the tears, all of it. Each wedding day is different, that’s one of the things I love about my job. A different location, atmosphere and group of girls – no two weddings are the same.”
