- Hi, I would love to be your bridal make-up artist! I have been a make-up artist for 20 years and learnt my craft in the film & tv industry. When i started a family it became clear that i didn't to be away from home on location for long periods of time so i started taking more freelance bridal work. I quickly learnt how wonderful it is to be part of the most important day of someone's life and how privileged I am to be a part of that. I believe that each bride should have their own unique look, so whether you are new to make-up or enjoy experimenting with your look i can help. My bridal package includes a trial at your home, make-up on the wedding day, eyelashes if you would like them and a top-up kit for your wedding day. My travel is included if you are within 10 miles of S1 (a small charge applies outside of that). You are welcome to add other members of the wedding party to your booking. I can also provide a hairdresser if you would like one.

What is your most memorable wedding?
So many! For me its the brides who stand out. I'm lucky enough to work with all kinds of brides; sophisticated, glamorous, hippy, hipster, rockabilly & vintage brides. But what unites them is the desire to look good yet individual on their wedding day.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Natural long-lasting flawless glowing beautiful
What about your business are you most proud of?
I love that i have so many repeat clients. So often i have provided make-up for a bridesmaid then gone on to provide make-up for her wedding. I love that!
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Id recommend having a bridal makeup trial about 6 weeks before the wedding. During the trial we work together to create a look you're happy with. I make notes about your chosen look and take photos so i know how to recreate it. On the wedding day i'm usually early (just in case!). I will have a schedule that works with the hairdresser and allows time for top ups and unforeseen delays. Once everyone's make-up is complete i will stay around until dresses are on so i can do top ups and make sure everyone looks perfect before they head off for the wedding.
What do you love most about your job?
It doesn't feel like a job!
What is your #1 beauty tip for a bride?
Drink lots of water
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
A little space away from the hustle and bustle, a spritz of lavender and some calm words.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Take a powder compact and lipgloss with you but only touch up when you go to the loo. I use the best products for longevity so you don't need to spend time touching up your make-up whilst missing your own wedding!
