Runaway Brides in Sophiatown

Good morning pouters, I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!

This past Saturday while most people were either marching at SlutWalk or watching more rugby I was running after a bunch of runaway brides at a demolition site in Sophiatown. The runaway brides were none other than the gorgeous Dynamite Girls (part of Dynamite Promotions) and they were on a very dusty set of an actual soon be demolished site. There were 17 gorgeous Dynamite Girls modelling dresses from Kobus Dippenaar Couture and Wedding Connexion.

I was on set from 9 am until 3pm and it was a busy but fun day – I didn’t have to completely paint 17 faces, luckily the girls had done their makeup and I was there purely to touch them all up and make them perfect and camera-ready before they went and were shot by the 4 photographers on site in different parts of the broken buildings.

Here are a few behind the scenes pictures of some beautiful brides.

A big thank you to Dynamite Promotions and the Dynamite Girls for letting me a part of your team and an extremely big thank you has to go to David Colyn of Dragonfly Photography for getting me involved in this project.

At the end of the day I was dirty, all makeup’ed out and utterly exhausted from running around all day but it was worth every second.



P.S. Clicks own range of makeup Essence has fantastic and affordable mascaras. Go try!
