On the Day Services
I am a highly sought after, award winning make-up artist based in Essex. I have worked in the make-up industry for over 20 years now specialising in bridal make-up. Having worked with hundreds of brides over the years, I understand that every bride wants to look and feel, radiant and beautiful on her wedding day but also as calm and relaxed as possible, confident that she is in safe hands. My extensive experience and product knowledge allows me to be creative and offer a full range of looks to brides, from a beautiful classic natural bridal look, right through to a more contoured statement look, Vintage or Hollywood glam. In addition to bridal make-up, I have also worked on many editorial and commercial projects and have had my work featured in a number of publications and bridal blogs. Having the pleasure of working with some top photographers over the years, I really understand how make-up can photograph and what techniques will get the best results.

What is your most memorable wedding?
my most memorable wedding was Jenny who married at Layer Marney Tower in October 2017. Jenny's wedding theme was Botanical Victorian Curiosity and she wore a stnning floral gown designed by Joanne Flemming. Her flowers were designed and provided by Scarlet and Violet who supply to the royal family - they were just stunning. I will never forget this gorgeous unique wedding.

I will not attend more than one wedding each day so my undivided attention is always guaranteed. On your wedding day, I will stay with you until you are completely dressed, to make sure any last minute finishing touches to your make-up can be made before the ceremony or pre-wedding photo shoot. I offer a completely mobile service and will travel to either your home or venue. Although I am based in Essex, I regularly attend to brides all over the South East and East Anglia.
