Ali Barnard's Wedding Shoot

Beauty isn’t about having a pretty face. It's about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart and a pretty soul.

There is an inner beauty about a woman who believes in herself, a woman with confidence. A woman who knows she is capable of anything she puts her mind to. The beauty of a woman isn’t in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries or the way she combs her hair. The real beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that’s the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. The true beauty in a woman, reflects deep into her soul. It’s the caring that she gives and the passion that she shows. It's how you are as a person and how you make others feel about themselves. That's real beauty.

It was such an honour doing Ali’s makeup for this bridal shoot as she literally made all those around her laugh as she teased the camera with her natural beauty and love for life. This lady is all the above and so much more. She oozes charisma on levels any woman can understand because she’s a daughter, mother, friend and a wife. She’s a reminder that being beautiful is nothing to do with looks, but everything to do with kindness. Ok, so it also helps that she has one of the most beautiful smiles you’ve ever seen.
