Faye Smith Makeup & Hair began in 2007, when Faye began training in makeup, in England, UK. Faye’s teacher, Emma, saw a special talent in Faye, and after only three months of training, began hiring her as a makeup assistant on Opera Shows. Faye soon decided to further develop her skills by enrolling in the Global Makeup Program at Blanche Macdonald, in Vancouver, Canada. By the time Faye had graduated in August 2009, she was well on her way in her successful career as a freelance makeup and hair artist.

Now, in 2012, her company has grown into a network of very talented artists, who she considers to be of the same calibre as herself, in both physical skill level and work ethics. Faye says that her work is her baby, and she certainly nurtures it how a mother would nurture her child.

There are a lot of wedding planners out there. We are not going to go into a big song and dance about why you should choose Filosophi. Although we do like dancing. But not in that way. If you tend to stray from the beaten path, then you've likely come to the right place. We have a burning desire to make every wedding we plan truly unique and original, to remove everything stereotypical and boring - we embrace tradition where it works, and hop outside the box everywhere else.

Design + Planning + Managment

Owner and pastry chef, Peter Fong, opened Ganache Pâtisserie in December of 2003 - the culmination of a dream to bring a little taste of Paris to Vancouver. Born and raised in Vancouver, Peter’s passion for baking followed him throughout high school and university where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Genetic Engineering from the University of British Columbia. After a backpacking trip through Europe and France, and experiencing the French passion for food and what the true art of pâtisserie could be, Peter decided to change careers, follow his heart and become a pastry chef. After graduating from the Baking and Pastry Arts program at the Dubrulle International Hotel and Culinary Institute, Peter completed his apprenticeship and obtained his journeyman’s Red Seal certificate during his 7 year stint working at local upscale hotels including the Fairmont Château Whistler, the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver and the Delta Pinnacle Harbourside. Inspired by trips to Paris and its haute pâtisseries, Peter’s dream was fulfilled with the launch of Ganache Pâtisserie and a French pastry shop in Yaletown was born.
