Well, not many people know this, but my middle name is Dawn. Yes, yes, I know what you're thinking..."your parents were hippies", "morning has broken" etc. Needless to say, I hated it. I didn't want it, never told anyone unless asked, didn't identify with it what so ever!
However, one evening, brainstorming as to what to call my new venture concerning wedding make-up in particular, I came across this image in my computer. I had taken this photo when we had been in Vancouver for just a few days. It was November and the Autumn sun was setting in English Bay, and thought it a nice composition so added it to my collection and didn't really think much more about it.
Now, with weddings, being a married woman myself and somewhat of a romantic, I associate a wedding with the joining of the lives of the couple, the next chapter, the 'dawn'ing of a new era if you will. And it occurred to me that my middle name could at last be an asset to me and my new business. No 'made-up', novelty name - me, my name incorporated into the name of the business and I had an image to go with it that embodied the notion that we are all clean, innocent and new, when we enter marriage and I can aid that journey by ensuring that the bride feels so special and looking her absolute best for her husband to be on the big day, no worries, taken care of, done! newDawn: Wedding Make-Up.
Now, I know that the image is of a sunset, but who would know, really. It could be a sunrise? Couldn't it? You tell me...
So, I'm working on getting my Wedding page set up to display my services and various packages you can hire me for, so watch this space!
Have a great day!
