SJ1It was a huge honor to be recognized by WedLuxe as the Best Makeup and Hair Artist. Some people are not familiar with WedLuxe so I thought I would write a little about them and share more about this incredible experience.

First of all, WedLuxe is a national organization that has been celebrating the very best of the Canadian Wedding Industry since 2006.

The mandate of WedLuxe is to showcase the most beautiful, most stylish, most creative and most exclusive weddings produced by Canada’s elite wedding professionals. In each issue of WedLuxe, the editors feature the top 7-10 weddings in each region.

The results are that WedLuxe magazine features only  truly “award winning” work.  They have featured weddings such as Michael Buble’s wedding in 2012 and many other high profile celebrity weddings.

The WedLuxe awards were designed to recognize outstanding vendor contributions to the Canadian wedding event industry and there are no paid submissions to WedLuxe. The winners for each category are determined by the organization and there is no payment involved.

The award I won was the WedLuxe Best Hair and Makeup Artist 2010. This award was given to me without my knowledge as the photographer I had worked with had entered her photos for a client we had in common. I was given the award based on the makeup and hair services showcased in the photos.

It is such an honor to be recognized amongst the best makeup artists and wedding professionals in Canada. This award is definitely a highlight of my career. It proves to me that if you are passionate about your work and always strive to be the best, that you will be recognized as a leader in your industry.

I thank WedLuxe and everyone I worked with on this amazing wedding. You can read more about this wedding in the featured article from WedLuxe here and see the photos from the wedding below!
