For my brides I offer a tailor made service, which can be adapted to your exact needs, If you'd like to be truly spoilt, I can provide a 1 to 1 service ( or up to 1 extra special person) , while the other members of my team look after the remaining bridal party. From my experience of over 50 weddings, I find that this makes for the most relaxing wedding morning, instead of rushing to get very member of the bridal party ready. You can relax and enjoy a facial, using Charlotte Tilbury and Alpha H products. This can be combined with steam aromatherapy, which I find really helps to ease those pre-wedding nerves. Your hair and makeup will then be finished to the highest standard, using only premium quality products, to leave you looking like the best version of yourself. This service also includes a full size lipstick and a full top up kit for you to keep, including power and foundation. Considering a change of dress for the evening? I can also be available to change your hair and makeup so you are set to party the night away! New for 2018 - I now offer a full glitter bar service, using bio degradable glitter to add some extra sparkle to your event! (Prices do not include travel )

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 time I've had my business, I still have to pinch myself that I am able to call this my 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 bride had made her own Sloe Gin for every guest!
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?
Skin prep is key for makeup longevity and overall look! So have a thorough consultation and start as soon as you can!
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! I recently had one bride fall asleep during her morning facial! 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.
