What is your most memorable wedding?
I attended a wedding and the theme was caricatures. They had their wedding invitations as caricatures of each other, they had a caricature wedding cake of the top table & in the evening they had an artist doing caricatures of the wedding guests. The wedding was a really lovely occasion with lots of fun & laughter. Everyone really enjoyed themselves.

I think it has got to be unique to you as a couple so talk about how you see the day and then work out how you can get that dream to reality.

I think the caricature artist doing portraits of the guests is such a lovely momento to remember the day in a personal way and a lovely touch.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I always have a consultation and do as many looks as the bride would like and then the finer booking details are discussed to ensure the day runs like clockwork.
What do you love most about your job?
I love the moment I hand my clients the mirror and to see their face light up. That is priceless.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Definitely exfoliate 2/3 days before the wedding day. I always give skincare advice to do from around 6 weeks before the wedding. A full skin consultation is done at the wedding makeup trial.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
What is planned and discussed is how I am on the day so timings, numbers when the photographer is arriving etc is all discussed so it is timed to perfection. I have such a calm nature that I naturally diffuse any stress or nerves on the big day.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
My makeup application is not going anywhere all day & night. The only advice I give is for the bride to take a lipstick/gloss to top up throughout the day.
