I like to think I bring together Glowing Flawless Skin, Soft Smokey Glam, and a timeless Makeup Look. Bridal Makeup is so much more than layering on as much makeup as possible. I trained specially in Bridal for two years, perfecting my craft. I continue to push myself and learn every single day, and have even trained alongside artists who have been taught by the Kardashians Makeup Artists, ensuring my natural glowing glamorous looks are fine-tuned. I pride myself on my skill, professionalism, and reputation. Being partnered with some of the biggest Venue's and names in the industry; it makes me to proud to come highly recommended by my fellow wedding suppliers. I am the chosen and recommended Bridal Makeup Artist for two of the regions biggest wedding venue's; Sarah Beeny's Rise Hall, and Cleatham Hall in Manton. I'm continuously working with photographers to ensure my work looks as gorgeous in the flesh as it does on film and in images. My work has featured on TV, and even on a few celebrity faces! I also co-own my own Salon and not only specialise in Makeup, but Microblading, Skincare and much more.. The Salon was recently listed in the Top 3 Best Rated Salon's in Lincolnshire, adding to the ever growing list of awards, features and nominations that I am so proud to have achieved. I travel to Brides on their wedding day, covering the whole of the UK and beyond. I've done weddings in Spain, Portugal and Mexico, and have even travelled as far as LA for my work!

What is your most memorable wedding?
Probably a wedding I did in Marbella, Spain. I was flown out to spend a few days with my bride and her family, and get her ready for her special day. The morning was SO laid back, with everyone dressed in beach/swimwear while we prepped. The weather was obviously gorgeous too!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Glowing, Flawless, Individual, Glamorous, and Natural
What about your business are you most proud of?
All of my various awards, and publications. I'm also so proud to be recommended by some of the most talented and prestigious suppliers within the industry. It's overwhelming actually when you admire someones work so much and they actually send their brides to you!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Remember why you are getting married. It's easy in a world filled with perfect pinterest images to get caught up and want to choose every style out there. Stick with what says the most about you two as a couple, and you'll always look back in years to come and still love every detail about the day itself.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
One of my couples had their place card names as a photograph of them with each guest. This made it so personal, and it was more about the closeness of them with the guests, than the politics which can sometimes happen of who should be invited just to please relatives and friends etc
Describe your typical process with a couple.
So after the first initial contact, I like to meet with my brides for trials and consultations. I invite the bride to my salon, or meet halfway if they are the other side of the country! We meet and chat over a coffee, exchange ideas, and plan the 'Look'. I always incorporate my makeup into the day. It should compliment the hair, the dress, the flowers, the venue; anything! I say to my brides bring anything you wish to the trial, whether its a magazine clipping, a pinterest board, or i've even had a bride bring a clipping of lace from her dress so I could see the gorgeous colours and materials she had chosen to give me a feel of the day and her overall goal she wanted to achieve.
What do you love most about your job?
Witnessing the special moments. I'm often there in the morning seeing everything unfold, and its so beautiful. My favourite is the Bride Reveal; whether thats to the father, mother, or bridesmaids. It gets me everytime!
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Skincare! Prep, prep, prep!! Every single bride should up their water intake, and start a skincare routine. Even if its not all bells and whistles, you need to at least cleanse and moisturise once a day minimum, ideally twice. Facials and Dermaplaning are amazing too, but if this isn't in your budget then make sure you exfoliate once a week also. This goes for any skin type! It keeps the base fresh, and gives a good canvas to start with. No-one has to have clear, perfect skin. As my job is to create that! But having a fresh base is the best way to ensure makeup lasts, and looks flawless.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
Every bride is unique, and I gauge that on the day. Some like to keep quiet, so I ensure she has a quiet space with me, time to reflect and get excited. This means I take her to a quiet corner, make the application relaxing, and always make sure she has a glass of fizz in hand to enjoy a moment! Other brides like to keep busy so they haven't time to get nervous. With bride's like that, ill keep asking questions, give them reminders of things to keep them busy (Have you got your jewellery? Brushed your teeth? Put on your perfume?) I've helped brides into their dresses, been down in underskirts rearranging them, and helped put on their jewellery. I've calmed down an emotional dad before, entertained bored and tired flower girls, and dressed bridesmaids. It's about seeing things as an outsider and stepping in to help as and when is needed.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Book me! Haha, but in all seriousness, every bride should to their research. Whether you are doing your own makeup and hair, or booking professionals. Checking reviews, publications, and even researching products if its a DIY job.
