What about your business are you most proud of?
I am most proud of the fact that I took the leap to get out there and work for myself. It's opened so many doors and has introduced me to amazing people, many of whom have become fantastic friends. It's just about having the faith in yourself and others and taking a risk - one which has paid off.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Enjoy it. Don't get too wrapped up in the organisation and planning, yes it needs done, but at the end of the day it's about your relationship and your future together. Focus on what's important and don't stress out about the little things.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I tend to just meet and speak with the bride and her bridal party. I like to keep in touch with my brides and help them with skin care, giving tips on how to get that natural glow before the wedding. I'm virtually always available to answer questions and help as much as possible.
What do you love most about your job?
Meeting new people and getting to know them. Then seeing them on the most important day of their lives and seeing them so happy, especially after their makeup is done and they have their dress on. I've shed a proud tear a couple of times, it's almost like being a proud mum or sister!
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
LOTS of water and good sleep. It's the most important thing for your skin. Trust me!
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
This is a good question, and an important one. I never have the bride first or last, always second last. The bride normally has a lot to do on the morning of the wedding, so I let her get that out of the way whilst I work on other members of the bridal party. It's also the last hour when a bride feels most nervous. Having the bride second last means that they are getting to feel calm and pampered, relaxing them before that final hour emerges.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
The makeup I do will last all day, it's something which I am proud of. But in order to help, try not to touch or run your face. It's also handy to have the same lipstick so that you can top it up as and when you need it, but the rest of your makeup should certainly last.
