Pre Wedding Journals | Selecting the right makeup artist for YOU

Let me take you to a time, a time where a makeup artist was applying false lashes on me. WITH SUPERGLUE. And another time where I was told to take a lipstick of another MUA for the day and just return it to her the next day.

Shortly after his arrival, Ryan made the move to live with my family and one night we got talking after I came home from a party. We totally hit it off, and the rest was pretty much history - but not before Ryan asked my dad if it was ok to date me! A year later I made the move with Ryan to his hometown, Christchurch.

Welcome to the Directory - Ashleigh Jane | Hair Art + MUA

It seems like a decade ago now, but back in July last year I had the pleasure of entering, and winning Canterbury Bride of the Year. I didn’t know it yet, but come 8am when I knocked on Ashleigh’s door for hair and makeup I was about to meet one of the most genuine, hard working chicks in the business - I literally could have sat in her makeup chair all day - not that I needed to, come midnight my face paint hadn’t budged one bit!

"Taking to the streets, we battled the bellowing wind to capture a love story amongst the beautiful chaos of our ever evolving city. In a landscape once packed with history, now reshaped and invigorated with an injection of new, we allowed bold backdrops to speak for themselves, and played on our love for the foragers paradise that is Christchurch".
