On the Day Services
Your wedding day is very special, and you want to look and feel special too! Your make-up can be one less thing to worry about. A make-up trial will develop a look that fits perfectly with your dress, hair and colour scheme, so that on the big day you can be confident of beautiful results and just enjoy the experience of being pampered. It's your day - treasure the memories and those precious photos capturing you at your loveliest. I have worked in the wedding industry for the last 6 years, before that I was a National Make-up Artist for Chanel, totalling 14 years within the Make-up world. I attended the Chanel Academy, where I was lucky enough to develop my skills further. My time with Chanel took me around the country and also overseas, destinations included South Korea and South Africa. It has also been my privilege to work alongside make-up greats like Sharon Dowsett, Kay Montano and Mary Greenwell in the course of charitable and counter events I have taken part in. A great introduction in to the wedding industry was when I was interviewed by Tatler about Chanel's wedding pack, I was able to share the importance of having your make-up professional applied on your special day. I recently shared Six things your MUA wishes you knew about your wedding day make-up, you can find this on the on-line Wedding Magazine. I am passionate about make-up artistry and love to be a part of making my clients look and feel fabulous, whatever the occasion. If you would like me to help you get that perfect look for your special day, then I would love to hear from you.

What is your most memorable wedding?
I was flown over to beautiful Malta to apply a brides Wedding Make-up. Initially the bride had a make-up lesson with the intension of applying her own make-up on her big day. After the lesson and speaking to her Fiancé, she made the decision that having her make-up professional applied was as important as her dress, therefore flew me out and she looked fabulous!!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
I believe that your make-up should allow your natural beauty to shine through. My adjective is to: Tailor make all make-ups to each brides needs and style Offer peace of mind of knowing that your make-up is going to look great on the day Capture you at your most loveliest Provide beautiful flawless make-up by using luxurious premium make-up Ensure you are feeling relaxed and pampered on the morning of the wedding day
What about your business are you most proud of?
Providing a service that makes brides feel and look amazing.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
One of my brides showed me her order of service. She had drawn pictures of all the wedding party and added their personal details interest, it was really fun.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Typically our first meeting would be at the trial, this is when we can discuss all requirements. Trials take place 6-8 weeks before hand.
What do you love most about your job?
When my job is done and the bride goes off to marry the love of her life, this is when I feel most proud. That feeling of satisfaction knowing that the bride looks amazing.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Look after your skin: drink lots of water and moisturise. Having a good canvas to work from will give a much better end-result. Dehydrated skin can be hard to work with and can make a foundation base look much heavier than it is. Make-up ends up sitting on the skin, rather than blending with it and prevents your natural beauty from shining through.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
Allowing plenty of time on the day and not feeling rushed is the key to creating a relaxed calm environment. Just sit back and enjoy the experience of being pampered.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
By having make-up professionally applied you will be flawless all day long. Ask a bridesmaid to carry a press powder compact and lipstick for you, this way you will always be camera ready.
