Every bride is beautiful on her wedding day. A major part of being a beautiful bride is feeling comfortable and confident in your choices and this includes your wedding makeup. If you're normally a fresh-faced gal then chances are you may not feel entirely at ease with a full face of heavy bridal makeup. Similarly if your signature look is fire engine lips and you opt for soft pastel shades on your big day you could feel naked or underdone.
We're not saying don't experiment with your wedding makeup, as after all if you can't be brave on your wedding day then when can you? But just remember to let your true self shine through - as this is the essence of real beauty.

Sun, surf, sand and a ceremony - doesn't it sound blissful! Beach and coastal weddings are forever a popular choice among brides especially in Australia.

Trash the dress is a style of wedding photography where the bride creatively destructs her wedding dress (generally with water or mud) to achieve an artistic photo.
"Trashing the Dress" shoots are becoming more popular, with brides jumping at the opportunity to put their wedding dress back on after the wedding and let loose.
Some brides may choose to have their photos taken in locations such as beaches, waterfalls or farms however some have also been known to choose locations such as busy city streets, rooftops or old abandoned buildings - the opportunities are as creative as you allow yourself to be.
FIRE BALL BRIDE
This bride married a fire fighter so she decided to light her dress on fire to achieve this amazing "joan of arc" shot. I hope her husband was standing by with a fire hose after the shoot!

Here are a few of my favourites!
