Belinda and Ben’s Cairns Wedding

There’s something so special about being part of a wedding day and for us, Belinda and her beautiful family went over and above.

We were truly blessed to spend the morning at Belinda’s mum’s place with some of the most resilient and heart warming women I’ve met.

Belinda and Ben were married at the Freshwater Catholic Church Cairns and held their wedding reception at the Cairns Hilton Hotel.

Belinda sent us a lovely email with some of her favourite photos from the wedding day.

“Dear Abigail and Belinda,
Thank you so much for the beautiful wedding hair and makeup.  You are both so talented, friendly and professional and you made the day magical by transforming us all!!  It was such a pleasure to have you as part of our special day.  The makeup & hair look amazing in photos.

Kind regards,

An absolute feast was laid out as we got to work on the makeup and hair for Belinda’s sister, bridesmaids and her mum.

The bride is always the last person in the hair and makeup chair so that she can enjoy the morning with her best friends and the nerves don’t get the better of her until the very last moment!

Belinda chose a white wedding gown and her bridesmaids dresses were a lovely rich shade of Cadbury purple. All went with structured upstyles for the hair and sweeping fringes. The makeup was bold but natural with pinks and browns for Belinda’s eyes and a hint of orange for the bridesmaids to complement their purple dresses. The look was finished with a pink glossy lip for that fresh tropical glow.
