You have spent countless hours putting together your big event, traveled continents to select the perfect outfit and matching jewels, but the most important detail remains – how will you – the centre of it all – put your look together? Our expertise is your peace of mind. At Pink Orchid Studio we have been trusted by international clients from all cultural backgrounds to help put their best face forward. No detail will go unchecked, your outfit will be dressed and pinned professionally, your hair and makeup will last, and you can concentrate on celebrating your day feeling your best. All photographs on this site have been taken with a basic SLR camera and photoshop has not been used on any of the makeup or hairstyles in these images. You will not only look great in photographs but more importantly in person also. Professionally applied makeup will help complete the look you spent so many months pulling together. Just a simple professional application that takes into consideration your unique features can have surprising effects. Together with a professional photographer, you will see amazing results in your photographs. Getting rest is key in putting your best face forward on your wedding day – lack of sleep may lead to puffy watery eyes and inflamed skin. We only take one bridal booking per morning and we start Sikh weddings out at 5am.

Professionally applied makeup will last the duration of your wedding day with proper care. Quality products are always used and steps are taken to ensure your makeup lasts. We will provide you with tips for wedding day touch-ups and a list of must-haves. We do provide lip touch ups for bridal clients. We do also suggest clients purchase blot paper or light powder to keep their t-zone oil free and makeup fresh looking throughout the day. Also please avoid makeup transfer by avoiding contact with your face throughout your day (ie hugging relatives cheek to cheek, if you cry – pat your tears with a paper towel, do not wipe your face, etc). Most of the products we use are water resistant in nature. We do suggest once your makeup is complete that you eat with a fork and knife and drink with a straw to ensure your makeup last.
