One of the pleasant side-effects of working and living on beautiful Waiheke Island is that I get to work with lots of people active in the wedding industry. Waiheke is covered in luscious vineyards and fringed with amazing beaches and only a boat ride away from the biggest city in the country, which makes it the perfect place to get married and treat your family and friends to an island getaway. Of course this means a lot of photographers get to shoot some of their most romantic work here and I often have the pleasure of working with all the lovely original imagery.
Today I worked with my friend Charlotte Edwardes of Island Beauty, one of the best and most experienced beauty and makeup artists who is based on Waiheke. She is a bride's dream, a lovely calming, understanding and nurturing energy to have around on your big day and her knowledge and skill in beauty are beyond compare. Her new website is now live, it was fun brainstorming ideas for branding for Charlotte and in the end the brand was a collaboration between Charlotte herself, me and another designer friend.
