What is your most memorable wedding?

My most memorable Wedding, was when the Groom, sang his speech to his beautiful Wife, in the style of 'Let it Go' from Frozen. Not a dry eye in the place :)

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Timeless, Vintage, Audrey Hebburn, Classic, Chic

What about your business are you most proud of?

Winning Best Make-up Artist for 2017-18 for Kent Wedding Awards and becoming a Huffington Post blogger :)

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Once you have set your date, start researching your Wedding Suppliers, dates get booked up extremely quickly. Don't risk losing out on a particular supplier, as I know myself, I get booked up at least 2yrs in advance.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I love the fingerprints trees and also the round wooden disks, where the guests sign and put a message, then these are added to a glass frame, looks so lovely.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Dates are booked at least 2yrs in advance, so its never to early to get in touch to hold your date. A Bridal Trial is then booked in, this is the opportunity for yourself to show me images and ideas for the certain look that you would like for your big day. Sometimes, my Brides don't have an idea and they allow me to create a look that I feel best suits her features and colour scheme. During the Trial, we will discuss the logistics of your Wedding Day, from time for myself to arrive and order of getting the Bridal party ready, I always aim to have you ready one hour before you need to be ready, that gives you an hour to get dressed and take some lovely pictures with your party.

What do you love most about your job?

I love helping my Brides feel amazing for their Wedding Days, I get a real buzz from being involved with all the fun and Bridal prep.

What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?

Drink plenty of water (your skin will thank you for it!).

How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?

I'm very organised, this takes away a lot of the pressure from my lovely Brides. I keep everyone calm and laughing, we don't want stress on your Wedding Day :)

What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?

Keep smiling and just enjoy your day, your make-up is tear & sweat proof, so you have nothing to worry about xx
