My sisters! My daughter accidentally dropped tea on her flower girl dress and the brides, my son had a fight with the bouquets in the corner when nobody was watching and I was a bridesmaid heavily pregnant due the following week! The most stressful wedding ever!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Anything goes on a wedding morning! I am not just there a a professional makeup artist but on hand to help with dressing, making cups tea and helping to calm those who are feeling stressed. I have on the odd occasion found myself emptying dishwashers, matching the fathers shoes and even going to the local shop to get tea bags!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
From the moment a bride sends through her first enquiry secures her wedding date, I am on hand to offer help and support with her beauty needs. A consultation and bridal trial are the first point of face to face contact where we will discuss her makeup and skincare needs to make sure she is photo ready for her big day!

Just sitting up on the makeup chair should be enough to help calm anyone stressed on their wedding day. A 45-50 minute pamper with a glass of Prosecco in hand should do the trick!

Getting your makeup professionally for your big day will last throughout the day however a lippy and loose powder should also be in your handbag to help touch up and take away any shine on your t-zone.
