What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Go with what feel's right for you.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Upon first contact we can discuss the different services I provide leading up to the big day & product's used to achieve the best look for the bride & her party.
Having Facial's & Body Treatment's leading up to the day is a great consideration because the condition of your skin can effect the look of your make-up & also nothing feel's better than having soft, great looking skin under your dress & also ready for your honeymoon. Manicure's & Pedicure's may also be something you would like leading up to the day & also a great get together with friends & family. I can also discuss make-up requirements for yourself & your bridal party. I would recommend to the bride a make-up trial about 4-6 weeks before the wedding & also if the bride was considering a Spray Tan I would also recommend a trial for that. Often I suggest having the trial tan before the Hen Party, as it is great to have an occasion to show it off for. If a few others also thought about having a tan then a "Spray Tan Party" is a great idea. Get together with 5 or more of your friends & you as the host get's your tan for free!
At the Make-up trial we can talk through timing's etc for the day & I will apply the make-up to the desired look to suit the bride & any changes to lipstick colour's for instance are made at the trial so that on the day the make-up looks perfect with now previous lip colour's staining the lip's. At the trial I will make a note of the product's used so that on the day we can recreate the perfect look. I will stay at the venue for as long as required for any last minute touch up's & to be on hand.
What do you love most about your job?
Making my client's feel better about themselves.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
keep your self hydrated & get plenty of rest leading up to the day. Not only does your skin look it's best when hydrated & well rested but your whole body & mind will also function better.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
By being organised & professional I work well with other people such as the hairdresser to get the bride & other members ready.The Bride is the most important person on the day, so by seeing what needs to be done & offering advise when required to keep everything flowing smoothly.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
By using a Professional range of Make-up the make-up will last all day. However I would advise purchasing the lipstick for touch up's throughout the day when required.
