Full Description
  • Full bridal makeup including highlighting and contouring on request. Cluster and strip lashes included for the bride! Hair styling is also available which includes, blow drying, curling, straightening and bridal styling. My kit consists of mainly MAC, Bobbi Brown and Urban Decay. Essex based but will travel to most areas on request. Trials can be carried out at your home address or you are welcome to come to Braintree. Can cater for bridal parties up to around 8 people and I also have an assistant who will attend if necessary. Can lace up wedding dresses and will stay with you right till you are ready to leave for the ceremony. I also offer a touch up service where I return for your reception to freshen and update your makeup which is especially nice if you are having a dress change or would prefer a more evening look. Weddings are my absolute passion and would love to be able to work with you for your big day! I was a bride myself in 2014 so I know exactly how you are feeling! Look forward to hearing from you!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Current, Timeless, Fresh, Natural, Radiant
What about your business are you most proud of?
Having the skills to make every bride feel amazing on her wedding day and that it continues to grow through recommendations.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Write a list! Tick off once each task has been done!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
The different ways couples create their guest books. Thumb print trees and letterboxes are up there with the favourites!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
For the bride I will find out all the details I need about the wedding. Dates, times, locations and numbers. Then, at the trial we will talk about your dress, themes and colours and then go through any requests you have. I love Pinterest so create some boards of hair and makeup styles you love, keeping it realistic for you. I will then create a look based on what things you love, paying special attention to features you love and the ones you don't! I won't leave your trial until you are 100% happy! I keep in touch right up until the wedding day, and then the magic begins!
What do you love most about your job?
I work with an amazing range of women, have made friends and sometimes really touched people's lives; whether it be a last minute wedding for a family member to attend or an emotional one where family are sometimes missing. I feel honoured to do the job I do.
What is your #1 beauty tip for a bride?
Look after your skin! Drink water, get enough sleep, exfoliate and moisturise!
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
I tend to notice when brides get nervous. They get quieter and I often hear the big deep breath in whilst doing their makeup. I often ask the room to be calm to allow for some quiet time and I'll always pick a room away from the hustle and bustle if its possible. A glass of bubbly normally helps too!
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Try to keep your hands away from the face and hair. If the tears run, Dab don't Wipe! Have one your bridal party keep hold of your lipstick and a touch up powder.
