What is your most memorable wedding?
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 style in 5 adjectives.
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 about your business are you most proud of?
Classic, Glam, Relaxed, Statement, Chic.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
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.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I love the moment I hand my clients the mirror and to see their face light up. That is priceless.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
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.
What do you love most about your job?
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.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
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.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
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 advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
I'm most proud of myself, my hard work, my determination and my success.
