I’m particularly proud of shoot as I produced this editorial with the help of my all star team:

Creative Director, Hair & Makeup: me! using skincare by Deciem the Abnormal Beauty Company, makeup by MAC, and hair by Label M

Wardrobe Stylist: Maie Dionisio featuring  fashion by Agent Provocateur, La Perla, Maison Close, Max Black, La Fille Do, El Minara, Ginia, Witchery, Peachoo & Krejberg, La Senza, Chantelle, Stella McCartney, Rosalynn Win, Baci & Sant Elia

Model: Tessa at Chic Management

We also filmed a beautiful fashion video to accompany this editorial which is definitely worth a watch (and guaranteed to spice up these cold winter nights!).

A celebration of femininity, sensuality and wakeful wanting.

“Grace in the Garden” – A Bridal Editorial

We shot this beautiful bridal editorial at the Hydromajestic in the Blue Mountains and it was recently featured on one of my favourite wedding websites Wedshed.

Sonia_Allen_Make_Up_The_Blog-Hydromajestic-Bridal-Editorial-1

We wanted to create a stylised shoot that showcased everything from wedding gowns to floristry, prop styling, table decor, jewellery and of course the hair and make-up, fitting for a setting like the Blue Mountains.

I styled soft loose waves with plenty of body for the hair using LabelM and for the make-up I concentrated on creating a flawless base, natural glow with earthy tones for the eyes and a flush of pink for the lips and cheeks.

Many thanks to our team:
