My business has one main focus, the client - and providing a tailored service to ensure their experience exceeds all expectations.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Stay calm! As long as you are organised it will all work out on the day, you have a team of supportive people around you to make sure that everything will go to plan, so make sure your enjoy the whole experience and have fun!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
At my own wedding the musicians were buskers that I'd walked past many times along Brighton seafront! I'd got their card and hey presto! really cool music was very personal for us.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I usually deal exclusively with the bride. Once she contacts me we will arrange a date to have a trial. The bride can come along to my beautiful converted stable in Sussex where we can discuss in detail her requirements. she can bring along photos for inspiration. I can re-create a look but it will always be tailored to suit the individual. At the trial we can try different ideas out until she is happy. I provide bubbles, tea and coffee and a fun and welcoming experience. Once the deposit is paid, the date is saved and I attend the venue on the big day.
What do you love most about your job?
I love the variety of my work and meeting so many lovely people along the way. It makes me happy to makes others happy and to be part of the most important day in someone's life.
What is your #1 beauty tip for a bride?
Prepare your skin, keep it smooth and hydrated with regular facials in the months leading up to the wedding. These treatments will not only help you to stay calm and relaxed, they will plump your complexion and protect the skin. Make is there to enhance you, you mask you, so the better your natural complexion is, the more beautiful you will look and feel on the day. I do a lovely signature holistic facial treatment that leaves you feeling floating on air.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
Brides always tell me that I'm naturally calming to be around. I'm also a Pilates teacher and Holistic therapist, so I've worked with people and energy for years, clients say I have magic hands. My personality is very warm and genuine so the bride instantly feels comfortable and we will have shared some time together at the trial too.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Have a little purse with some face blotting papers to remove any shine, have a lipstick to top up with, apart from that after the make up has been applied professionally it should stay in place all day and night.
