I tailor my wedding prices to the client, so I won't charge you for a full face of makeup and lashes, if I you prefer something very natural. My prices start at £50 for a barely there natural look. My prices are then fully customisable depending on your requirements, from a lipstick for you to keep for the day, to a Charlotte Tilbury facial treatment on the morning of your wedding. I am also able to do hair from £30 on top of any makeup package. The rest of the bridal party is also able to take advantage of my pricing packages. A wedding trial is £50, (+£30 for hair too) which takes around 2-3 hours, we can try as many looks as you like within this time. A travel fee will be incurred outside of the Manchester area of 50p/mile

What is your most memorable wedding?
A festival themed wedding, which was amazing! They’d built a whole town like a movie set for their guests to explore! The groom arrived by speedboat!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Natural, glowy, relaxed, calm, glamorous,
What about your business are you most proud of?
In the short amount of time I've had my business, I'm amazed by my success so far. I feel blessed everyday to be able to do this job.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't feel that you have to do everything that occurs in a typical 'wedding'! I have so many brides that feel like they should have the typical 'bridal hair up' but you should look like yourself on your wedding day, just just a little more fabulous!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
One wedding had a shabby chic theme that I loved, each place setting was made with a little stack of ladybird books, it was really cute!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I now book up to 2 years in advance, so I often suggest booking in for an occasion makeup to ensure you are happy with my makeup style, before leaving it until the trial to find out. The trial is scheduled 6-8 weeks before the big day, that way you have an idea of colour schemes, the very important dress and any hair accessories, veil that we can use to build your final look. ( Although I do have a few bits and pieces I bring to trials, if you are unsure)
What do you love most about your job?
Getting the chance to make someone feel amazing on one of the most special days of their lives. I still get overwhelmed when the bride comes out for the first time in her dress.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Any beauty treatments/spray tans, have a trial a month or so before the big day, so you can be sure of no adverse reactions.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
First of all by arriving in on time, if not a little early. Ensuring we have allocated more than enough time for a relaxing makeup application. If all else fails, I carry with me some aromatherapy oils, proven to calm and relax - they really work! My personality is very calm and I'm a happy person, so I like to think it rubs off a bit on my clients.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Choose an experienced makeup artist! I'm a strong believer in that makeup shouldn't wear you, but instead enhance what you already have.
