Describe your typical process with a couple.
You would firstly enquire via our website where we would check availability and send you a personalised quote within 24 hours. The wedding date is then reserved with our team for 14 days so you can relax in making your decision. You are then welcome to chat to me about any details or make any amendments. To book your artist you would log in to the booking area to view and confirm your quote making the deposit payment via world pay secure payment system with your credit or debit card to secure your wedding date with your selected artist. The artist would then contact you every step of the way from trial to the wedding day to ensure the day runs smoothly for you.
What do you love most about your job?
As cheesy as it sounds I love making brides look and feel amazing on their wedding day putting them at ease at every stage, as I know how stressful it can be. I like to be like the brides hair and makeup fairy god mother :)
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Always used a primer if you want a photo finished makeup look. (smashbox is my favourite) it will keep you makeup on all day and will smooth out most imperfections like open pores and fine lines. It is a miracle in a tube.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
I think its important to stay calm and confident so the bride knows she is in great hands so she can sit back and relax and know its one less thing to worry about. I also talk if the bride wants to about anything that is making her nervous as I can usually alleviate her fears as I have done weddings for over 20 years.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Just smile, as the hair and makeup will stay looking as good as it did at the start of the day till the last dance, the only thing that would need touching up would be the lipstick which we provide a complimentary lipstick pot and brush with the lip colour used.
