You know when life gets a bit overwhelming, and then suddenly you get that feeling that ‘everything’s going to be alright’? See this as my most recent epiphany.
I am so blessed to be surrounded by like-minded mega-talented people. Case in point: the Feather Love workshop hosted by Noa Azoulay-Sclater, the beautifully-minded artist/photographer behind Feather Love. With the help of Rock n Roll Bride and darling ‘I-hug-everyone-at-hello’ Emma Case who was a guest speaker, talking about her own journey and inspiration, this was a match made in wedding HEAVEN!!! Oh, and it didn’t hurt that we had an amazing couple to shoot (Kat’s new intern, Roo, and her fiancé Lamb) and that it was held HERE
So I was responsible for the hair and make-up on the lovely Roo (who’s got amazing taste, I might add) and we also got to play a bit with Paperself Eyelashes and shimmery gleamy bronzy eyeshadows. The idea was cult 70’s, I know Noa had a better ‘spirited’ description, and for the life of my I can’t remember it! There were loads of taxidermy, fur, wild flowers… (again, my idea of heaven!) all supplied by the smart lady Amy of Little ‘a’. Roo got to wear a dreamy vintage gown by Charlotte Casadejus (see more of her wedding dress shopping trip HERE).
A seriously felt so much at home, and everything Noa and Emma said resonated well with where I am at this very moment with my creative life, and how I should take it to the next level. This included stopping and appreciating little things around you, and letting them inspire you. ‘Inspired by’ should not be ‘copying’, and learning how to use something subtle that has spoken to you, and be guided by that, the core, instead of doing the obvious.
Before I blabber on too much, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone involved, it was great to see old friends, and also to meet new ones.
Oh, and I’ll never look at hip hop in the same way.
