The Magic of Tom Banwell

Introducing the magical and beautiful fairytale like masks of Tom Banwell. I have been in love with Tom’s magical masks for a while now ever since I met Tom at Julie and Jon’s art deco wedding When Tom sent me a few of his masks to photograph, I was ecstatic. Once again, I teamed up with the amazing Hair and Make Up Artist, Rona Basa of LuxeImage to quickly throw a shoot together over the weekend. And I am so in love with the results. Tom’s masks are so amazing and our beautiful model, Annie, really made the fairytale feeling come to life. How beautiful would these be for the perfect wedding?

We had so much fun just playing around with different looks and Tom’s masks that the day just seem to magically slip away! And be sure to visit Tom’s Etsy shop to view the entire mask collection. Keep following our blog and you might just see more of Tom’s masks making a cameo in the future weeks. Yes, I am that in love with his masks!
