One Fine Day Wedding Fair Sydney Makeupartist makeup Liv Lundelius

One fun weekend this was! At the One Fine Day in Sydney.
While my inbox is overflowing and I am trying my best to get through the wonderful and overwhelming response of the last few days,
I wanted to share a few of my favourite vendors with you.
The One Fine Day girls where one of the very first people I got in touch with when I moved to Sydney and I have been part of the
magical fair right from the humble beginnings at Sun Studios. I can not thank the founders enough, I met so many wonderful people through
this event, even new friendships and of course a lot of business.
Now that we are getting married ourselves, we didn’t only exhibit but were also for the first time on the other side.
We were actually shopping around and locking in some vendors ourselves!

People often ask me which part of my work I enjoy more: wedding makeup or editorial makeup, but to be honest, I can’t quite decide.
I love both and I do both. That’s the short and sweet answer.
Of course all One Fine Day handpicked vendors are great in their own ways, but here are a few that I found are really worth mentioning and recommending to you,
if you are currently planning your own wedding as I had personally amazing experiences with them.

Hello May magazine! Be sure to check out their new “Real Wedding Special” a print book full of the most amazing real weddings.
All We Need Is Love -Celebrant Victoria Eustace is just super lovely all around.
Bridal trousseau – Luxurious Bridal Lingerie and also the most inspiring Instagram account
Natalija The Label – Lovely gowns to make getting ready even more fun!
Tillee Music -Ohhhh this voice. listen for yourself, these guys are amazing.
In An Instant photo booth – Incredibly Fun Polaroid Photobooth being silly in front of their camera was my highlight of the weekend
Bondi Lashes – The best experience in lash extensions
Moira Hughes Couture– bridal dresses exuding luxury and couture skill. If you can’t find the right style in her collection, Moira also creates bespoke pieces.
Grew & Co Some serious jewelry design by the loveliest and most creative husband & wife team based in Sydney.

Jo Bartholomew Jo recently shot our very own engagement photos- nuff said!
Milton Gan – Finely Crafted Wedding Photography I met these guys right at the very first OFD and am always impressed by their big smiles and positive nature paired with professionalism.
Anna Turner Very artistic Lady with a good sense of Humor and Style.

More More More Spring Wedding Inspiration

Posted on: Tuesday, August 27, 2013


I love flowers!!!! All kinds, the more the better, the wilder, the bolder, the brighter even better!
I have recently had the chance to work with a very talented and artistic Florist Yvette from the
Piccadilly Flower Company and with Kelsey Genna,
who’s beautiful wedding dress designs are all inspired by flowers.
So we all worked together with this gorgeous Bride Lina and Luisa Brimble who I have mentioned to you before here, doing her camera magic and snapping in The Chinese Garden in Sydney.

Behind the scenes – White Magazine shoot from Nicholas Sim on Vimeo.

I just discovered that White Magazine released the little makeing off video of our previous shoot “Sweet Moments”.
Can you spot the little sweet & cheeky flowergirl? Her name was Liv as well, so we had a lot of name confusion fun , as we had 3 Liv’s on this shoot.
Makeup Liv, aka me, Little Liv aka Flowergirl and big Liv, who was our gorgeous model for the day.
Little Liv loved my lip glosses, and the only way we could make her collaborate was to constantly top up her lips with some sparkle… and a pink brush, obvsly.
It really made my day to see this. Hope you enjoy too!

One Fine Day in Sydney

Posted on: Sunday, July 21, 2013


Are you keen on meeting some of the most creative, fun & talented wedding vendors from down under?
I met up with the great minds behind the One Fine Day fair: Nadean, Jess and Marissa to help create the images for the latest OFD campaign.
It was so much fun creating the makeup for this very elaborate evening themed wedding shoot, I am so in love with that huge flower headpiece and the sequins dress…
I chose a warm deep wine colour for the lips and a warm peach with bronzer & contour on the cheek for this dramatic but radiant look.
The eyes I kept classic and smokey with plenty of mascara. It’s important to keep the skin light and radiant as a balance.
While I most of the time love a more natural look for brides, with all the extravaganza & red carpet styling in this shoot I feel that this makeup just ties in and works with the dim lighting.
What do you think? Would you go for a bold lip or smokey eye for your wedding?

Don’t miss out on the next ONE FINE DAY fair in Sydney which is coming up in September.
The last One Fine Day Fair in February was so much fun! Check out my little post about it here.
I met the most wonderful people and can’t wait for the next one.
Come by and say hello, I am looking forward to seeing you there!

Love Sparkle?

Posted on: Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Our Glitter inspiration wedding photo shoot was featured over at the great Polka Dot Bride.

Dream team with Allie from The Wedding Weaver, who styled and planned the whole shoot, Photographer Jo Bartholomew & Makeup Artist Liv Lundelius. Floral Headpiece by Liv Lundelius. Compliment the shoot was an incredible floral hairpiece from The Sisters at Engadine Florist.

Check it out for more images! I love my job.

Rosemary Instead Of Roses

Posted on: Monday, June 13, 2011

I haven’t done a world wedding traditions post in a while.
While looking something up on a yoga website I came across some traditional love herbs and I found the following fact:
Rosemary – Represents love and faithfulness. Many cultures have used this herb as an aphrodisiac and to keep love strong.
In days of yore, women carried Rosemary for their bridal bouquet in lieu of flowers!
I didn’t know that. I love rosemary on potatoes and roasts.
But as bouquet? Not quite sure.
It would look great for sure together with flowers.
Keep your love strong- with rosemary ; )

thoughts about valentines day

Posted on: Wednesday, February 16, 2011

photo by uloni

“I love you but you didn’t bring me flowers.” Your love is hanging on flowers! You are seasonal, conditional, demanding and bargaining. Love is not a bargain. Love is not a business. It cannot be bought and sold. It has no condition. When you put a condition on love, it evaporates.
© The Teachings of Yogi Bhajan, July 16, 1982

Yes I am a day late.
But that doesn’t really matter, because my thoughts about Valentines Day totally agree with this wonderful quote of Yogi Bhajan.
I heard some ladies complaining during the day of the 15th of February, that their beloved man hasn’t send a message yet and saw some other girls stressing about gifts and buying tasteless cards.
Not enough of this silliness: They had to ask me what we will be doing on Valentines Day.
Uhm!? We just came back from a 3 week uber-romantic holiday to Australia, we went for a delicious SPONTANEOUS dinner out on friday night and yes:
We don’t do Valentines Day. Not in general. But only when we want to do it.
And that is far more often than once a year.

The smell of a Love Song

Posted on: Sunday, November 28, 2010

Tiempe Passate by Antonias Flowers is my favorite fragrance at the moment.
It was named for a love song written by her grandfather in the 1920s.
I tried to figure out more about the song but couldn’t find any lyrics.
Anyway it’s an incredible unique sent with notes of bergamot, clementine, sage, mimosa, cyclamen, Montauk rose, white orris, cedar, vetiver and amber.

Bridal Bouqet !?

I like it!
And it reminds me that my new place in London still really lacks plants.
Now that London’s Autumn fully kicked in I spend more time inside I miss greens. And flowers.
We have awesome flower markets here in London and this weekend I will
go and create something wild and beautiful for our room!

jar junk

It’s probably not the latest idea to use jars as environmental- and budget friendly wedding deco items. But I still like them. As laterns, picture frames, drink glasses…

Dave* has an obsessive jar collector. So this post is dedicated to his little obsession.
He is even enjoying the process of getting the labels off and has purchased a special cleaning liquid to do that.
They quite handy for all the sewing accessories in my studio!
