What about your business are you most proud of?
Making my clients feel like themselves but the best possible version. I’m so proud of the work I do with my bridal parties, read my reviews to see what my Brides say!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Your favourite suppliers can book up sometimes a year in advance! Get in touch and request brochures to avoid missing out on your favourite suppliers.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I offer a no-obligation consultation where I can offer a quote and answer any questions that you may have about the big day. Once you are completely happy we will book you in for your hair and make-up trial. This is where we discuss your ideas and come up with a look thats perfect for you. We then demo the hair and makeup and make sure you love it. Once you are happy with the finished look, we add notes and photos to your notes. I then come up with a time plan for your morning and we meet on the big day feeling prepared and excited. You can sit back, have a glass of bubbly and enjoy your bridesmaids knowing you are all in safe hands.
What do you love most about your job?
I love a Wedding morning and I am so honoured to be with so many wonderful women at their stunning venue on the morning of their wedding. Seeing heir face light up when everyone’s ready and looking amazing is priceless.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Find a skincare routine that works for you. A lip scrub the morning of your wedding will make your lips soft and kissable!
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
I come up with a morning time plan so everyone knows where to be at what time and to ensure everything runs smoothly and on time. It can be a much appreciated time for the bride to close her eyes and relax. Or we chat, listen to music, talk about your amazing day ahead and have a giggle. It's an exciting morning and everyone is in such great spirits.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
I always suggest purchasing the lipstick we choose to wear, as that should be the only thing to touch up! If you have an oily skin type, blot papers are great to control shine throughout the evening without adding excess powder to the skin.
