12/11/2014 - Meet Rene, my superbly lovely, genuine, kind-hearted, and radiant friend, and Bride, of The Vintage Bride Boutique, married her beloved fiancé Adam last Saturday.
I had the absolute honour, along with a handful of Rene's closest vendor-friends, to provide our services for their most special day.

Thank you Rene, I'm still in awe of your impeccable styling prowess, you were an absolute vision, the day was magical, and I was taken back by the most special intimate elements to the day too. The most memorable part for me, was when your Mum's 'blessed' your rings before you exchanged them together.
Just wow. Still reeling from it all!
With all my love,
Gemma xx

28/10/14 - I'm almost finished shooting for the Pinup Project for MS; I'll be accepting pre-orders soon! A very special thanks goes out to Deb Saunders Photography, and my good friend, and consistent supporter, Emma of Face It Makeup Effects for their willingness to contribute to the cause. I was diagnosed with MS in 2007, and as I'm living well with the chronic disease, many aren't and I wanted to give something to help the MS sufferer community, as well as lovers of pinup! It's a win-win scenario! :)

 28/10/14 - Sometimes I like to get a little creative, and avant garde. Here's my most recent collaboration with a few exceptionally talented folks:  Nicole Luneburg Photography, and Face It Makeup Effects. A very special mention to Sunshing & Lollipops, (for the use of her fluff bunny, Azumi)  and The Vintage Bride (for the use of her tassle house coat). More in the gallery, click the image below.
