‘Love Story’ Josh + Lauren


When Josh and Lauren first met on a night out at World Bar in Kings Cross, little did they think they would be catapulted onto a life-defining journey.

 Fast forward 2 years with many cherished moments in between, and Josh prepared to propose to his love. On a weekend away on the Mid North Coast, Josh took Lauren to The Gap - a beautiful cliff scape with amazing views of the ocean. Josh told Lauren he wanted to go and try and see whales but proposed instead. Lauren found out later that it wasn’t even whale season. 

If planning a wedding wasn’t busy enough, Lauren and Josh were thrilled to also welcome their son Carter into the world. 

Lauren’s dream wedding was emerging with a rustic, country, farm vibe. She had her heart set on an authentic cow shed and was lucky enough to find it at Mulla Villa Guest House in Wollombi. “The setting was so perfect I decided not to use any colour and went with simple green and white flowers. The place was decorated with just lace, flowers and some wood elements,” Lauren said.


When I asked Lauren to share her favourite part of the day, it was “everything”.

”We always dreamt of the perfect day and it really was. Everything was just as I imagined and the whole day ran so smoothly, I couldn’t have asked for more,” she added. 

Thank you for sharing your love story with us Mr. and Mrs. Hyland x x x  

 Lots of Love and Happiness 



Airbrush v's Traditional Makeup

 The most common question when it comes to the type of makeup to have for your wedding day is the difference between airbrush and traditional makeup? 

Every type of makeup has it’s own pros and cons. Every makeup artist will have their own opinion on what they prefer to use on their brides. Ultimately, it all depends on your personal preference. If you can’t decide between the two, do a trial with both and see what you’re most comfortable with.


AIRBRUSH MAKEUP  A light-weight makeup applied through an air gun machine that produces a thin, even layer of makeup and creates either a light, medium or full coverage. It will give you both a dewy or matte finish depending on what you like. How it’s used: A small amount of a very thin makeup designed for air brush use is put into a chamber of a gun. When the machine is turned on and the gun trigger pulled, a light spray of makeup comes out of the gun in a fine mist. The fine mist of colour covers the skin and gives the appearance of a flawless complexion. Your makeup artist will mix foundation colours for a perfect blend to match your skin tone. Since it’s such a fine mist your true skin tone shows through which makes it look more natural and not so much caked on. It will not transfer onto clothing, In professional photographs it looks amazing! Airbrush makeup is water resistant and it won’t go anywhere until you wash it off. Be sure you don’t wipe away sweat/tears and instead ‘blot’. This will help guarantee your 16 hours of wear.

TRADITIONAL MAKEUP A Liquid, cream, or pressed powder that is usually applied with a sponge, brush or finger tips. Traditional makeup comes in the widest variety of any other makeup, with every shade available. It’s also the most versatile of all the makeup; it can be as basic as a sheer tint of coverage, or combined with other properties to create a makeup that targets a very specific look. How it’s used: This particular makeup is the only makeup that, given the appropriate formula is chosen, can be used in any situation at any given time. Traditional makeup works very well on more mature skin as it can target specific things like lifting and firming. It can be applied many different ways, from brush methods used with thicker foundations, to finger tips used for light and well blended applications.

For events such as weddings the durability and the flawless finish of the airbrush is my favoured method, skin texture permitting.
