Detailed Description

I provide a wide range of beauty treatments including manicures, gel polish, pedicures,waxing, spray tanning and natural looking bridal make up as well as relaxing facials and massage. I have a gorgeous treatment room in my own home in Bayston Hill near Shrewsbury where you can relax and enjoy your pre wedding treatments and we can discuss your required look for the big day. On your wedding day I will travel to you so there is no need for you to be rushing around. I have made hundreds of brides look naturally fabulous on their wedding day, most of whom wore little or no make up normally and were concerned they wouldn't be recognised. All were so happy with the look I created for them and their bridesmaids. Mothers are also often worried but I put them at their ease and make sure they feel and look special.

FAQs (9)

What is your most memorable wedding?
Some years ago I had just finished the brides make up when her father realised her had left his suit at the hotel he was staying at. Panic! No one knew their way around Shrewsbury and so I finished her, drove to the Albright Hussey, picked up the suit and drove back to finish the bridesmaids.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Natural, relaxed, friendly, fun,calm
What about your business are you most proud of?
I trained as a beauty therapist for two years with the aim of setting up a mobile business which I did twenty years ago with a Princes Trust Grant and am proud to still have many of my first clients on my books. I am often recommended by past brides and have even done the daughter of one of my first brides.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Have your hair dresser and make up artist come to you. Don't be rushing around on the wedding morning.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
The bride comes to my treatment room for a their consultation and trial, often with mum or a friend to give their advice. We sit and have a chat over a coffee about her usual make up style and the theme of the wedding and the colours. I then apply the make up without letting her look in the mirror until I have completed the look. I always emphasis that this is a trial and that we can change anything and take as long as it takes for her to be completely happy with her look. We then discuss where I will be coming to on the day and the timetable to fit around the hairdresser. I text or email the day before the wedding to confirm the time and then turn up in plenty of time to set up in the room with the best light. I like to work on the bridesmaids and mother first if possible so that the bride has the freshest make up but am very flexible and am also happy to help in whatever might be needed. I have looked after children, cuddled babies, opened champagne, pined corsages and laced brides into dresses in the past! Before leaving I give a little touch up kit with nail file, cotton buds, make up remover wipe and lipstick which often the bridesmaid or mother puts in their bag in case its needed later. I then take a quick snap of the bride in her dress and check she is happy with her make up before I go.
What do you love most about your job?
Showing people how a tiny bit of make up can make a big difference and that they don't need to be scared of it. Make up is fun.
What is your #1 beauty tip for a bride?
Know you are a a beautiful princess and enjoy it.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
I tell her to remember what the day is about, that the only really important thing is that she is marrying the person she loves.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Smile and feel confident that they look fantastic.
