What is your most memorable wedding?
Every wedding I've had the pleasure of being part of is special, memorable and meaningful to the couple getting married. Weddings are all so personal and being invited to witness the excitement for their life-long love for eachother is a real privilege. However, I do love a bridal party that can have some light-hearted fun on an atmospheric morning! So I'd have to say being asked to be part of 'Marry-Oke' never fails to make me smile.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Classic and current, understated, fun, and most importantly real.
What about your business are you most proud of?
I love everything about my business. I have such a great time with my brides on their big day that I'm almost disappointed to be going home after a wonderful morning of wedding prep!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Start early and ask us suppliers for hints and tips. We've seen so much!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
There are so many hidden meanings in a wedding that, if you look closely, tell you so much about the couple and their love for eachother. It's so difficult to pick a favourite...
What do you love most about your job?
Meeting new people under such happy circumstances.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Work on getting your skin hydrated through drinking lots of water and have an enviable skin routine. It will work wonders for your makeup!
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
My brides always tell me that they're so chilled they could fall asleep in my chair on the day! So I guess I'm doing something right? I always try to position my set-up to face away from all the commotion of a wedding day morning.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Simply to smile and enjoy every moment!
