What is your most memorable wedding?
A wedding in my favourite city, Cape Town - that was my first ever wedding!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Modern, Effortless, Beautiful, Relaxed, YOU.
What about your business are you most proud of?
My brides. Every bride that books me is a dream.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't wait around... Couples book up to 1-2 years in advance, so get in touch as soon as you can to avoid any disappointment.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
The relationship building starts the moment I reply to your first enquiry. We can get to know each other more through emails and phone calls until we meet in person at the hair and makeup trial. Between the trial and the wedding day, I create a personalised time sheet so that the day runs smoothly and am on hand for any questions/advice over email or phone call until the magic happens on the big day.
What do you love most about your job?
The amazing people I meet.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Establish a good, consistent skin care routine. Cleanse, Tone, Exfoliate, Moisturise. Good makeup needs a good base to get the best results. Also take some time out for YOU, stress shows in our skin.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
We work everything out over email and at your trial so nothing is unanswered on the day - I take notes on all the products used and a time sheet is made so everyone knows when they are needed for a smooth running morning. This allows my brides to just sit, relax and be beatified.
I've been told many times that not much fazes me, and I guess that is true, I'm very calm and efficient and will do everything I can for you to have a lovely, relaxed morning.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Good skincare is so important for long lasting, flawless makeup. But the products I recommend brides to have handy on the day is a translucent blotting powder and their chosen lip colour to touch up with on the day.
