Describe your typical process with a couple.
Meet with the client following a phone call or email or contact over social media. Speak about the date of wedding, style or theme of wedding, colours, bridesmaids, mother of the bride etc. swap any picture ideas and then go from there. I usually do this initial consultation with a trial and then when you're ready I can book you in on your chosen date. I book a whole day out for a wedding so I am not rushed for time. I will get to you as early as necessary and leave when you're ready for me to do so. I can also help out on the wedding day if you so wish.

Being part of someone's special day and creating a lasting look the bride will treasure for ever
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Get plenty of sleep before your wedding day to really look after your skin
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
Talk about their special day and plans for the honeymoon, I do prefer to do the makeup away from all the hustle and bustle just so the Bride gets to feel pampered on her day and try to prevent us being disturbed too much. Take their mind of any worries - I've been there before so I know the day can be stressful, but someone chatting quietly and calmly helps. We can also have a (tiny for me!) glass of bubbly to relax too! I've also been known to play their favourite music on their I Phone, sort out a last minute hitch with the cake and even do up the bride's wedding dress when her Mum was far too nervous and was all fingers and thumbs!
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Prepare in advance - drink plenty of water, get rest and try to exercise before your day, helps make you look radiant on you day!
