Hi! I’m a professionally qualified artist, having specialised in weddings for the last 5 years. I absolutely love my job! For your big day I can provide makeup and hair styling, classic lash extensions as well as semi permanent makeup for eyebrows should you require. Trials are compulsory for brides so I can meet you, get to know you and most importantly create that perfect look for you! I’m completely mobile as well as having a space at home for trials so the option is yours! For larger groups I can provide an assistant (or two!) to help with your party, to avoid you having to find multiple artists to cater for everyone. Weddings are my absolute passion and would love to be able to work with you for your big day! I was a bride myself back 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 No. 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 No. 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.
