Welcome to my profile, I'd like to start with a wonderful review from one of my lovely brides as I feel this explains myself, my work and how I feel about it: “Christina is one of these amazing souls who puts you at ease the minute you are in her company. Naturally for a bride, hair and make-up is a huge part of the day and a rather daunting one! When I went for my trial in Christina's beautiful home, she was brilliant. So incredibly and naturally talented, she had lots of ideas and I loved all of them. I walked out of there and looked like a different woman….the make-up made my eyes look so defined but I didn't feel like I had a lot on - perfect for me who doesn't normally wear a great deal of make-up. My hair was simply gorgeous and even the taxi driver who picked me up said how nice I looked!! Everyone should have Christina make them look and feel beautiful on their wedding day - I was one of the lucky brides to have found her.” Mrs Demelza Clark (Jones) I have a wealth of experience as a hair and make up artist having started in the theatre, followed by tv, film and several years ago I started my wedding hair and make up business. I see every bride as wanting to make the very best of herself on a very special day and I love to create that look especially for her to bring out her natural beauty and fill her with confidence , it really is such a treat! It's a very special feeling to be a part of a brides wedding day, often with her family and friends in a gorgeous venue with everybody in happy spirits . I feel my wealth of experience has given my work a creative edge which translates in my hair and make up artistry and knowledge, this puts brides at ease as they can feel my confidence and they know they are in great hands.
