What is your most memorable wedding?
I don't really have any favourite weddings, I love my job so much that each wedding is personal to each bride and I love being a part of their special day.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Bespoke, personal, individual, professional and relaxed
What about your business are you most proud of?
Winning Dorset Wedding Suppliers Awards for hair and make up 2 years in a row!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Book your hair and make up artist early! So many brides leave it until the last minute but I have bookings up to 2 years in advance, when you have found someone you want to use book them immediately
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A groom hade made his bride to be a book of all their memories together since they had first met and looking forward to their married life, I just thought it was the sweetest thing i'd ever seen
Describe your typical process with a couple.
After an initial enquiry, some people just want to book me and pay a deposit and others want to meet me, its completely up to the individual.
After the deposit is paid, I ask the bride to send me over images of hairstyles or make up they are thinking of and I start to create them a mood board of ideas for their trial. Not everyone knows what they would like and that's fine as I can help them on their trial.
Trials are done about 2 months before the wedding, so the hair length is about the same as it would be on the wedding date.
What do you love most about your job?
That each bride is individual and wants something different for their big day, my job is always different and keeps me on my toes
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Drink lots of water! 2 litres a day if you can ...this really helps to rehydrate your skin and will keep you fit and healthy too
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
I don't get stressed, so as long as I stay relaxed I find the bride does too
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Take a lipstick that we use at your trial to top up on the day, other than that your hair and make up will last all day and night
