What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Look after your skin, drink plenty and exfoliate. Don't forget to moisturise, even if you have oily skin, you can get mattifying moisturisers designed for oily skins
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
Umm, this depends on the bride... One thing - Music, music definitely changes the atmosphere in a room. We also dont work to a schedule, i think it can cause too much pressure and make people panic. We have a plan of action, we get everyone ready, but we do it with no stress.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Don't mess with your makeup- unless absolutely neccessary! Extra makeup can result in cracking and look cakey on camera and ruin your HD look. Over highlighting can give too much shine and give a grey appearence. Too much powder can also appear cakey or even patchy
