What is your most memorable wedding?
A wedding I had 4 years ago when we had 5 inches of snow over night. I was one of the few suppliers who still attempted to get out to the venue as it was in a remote location. It was worth every second and the photo's were incredible.

Seeing a brides face when she has her dress on and hair and make up done and she sees herself for the first time.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Don't change your daily beauty routine too much before the big day, you want to be a more polished version of yourself for your wedding.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
Take her mind off things, talking about the honeymoon helps as this is something to look forward too. A little break from hair and make up to compose themselves. It often depends on the situation as to how i would help keep my brides calm.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Be them selves and enjoy their day! If you cry, dab your eyes with a tissue, don't rub as this will remove your make up, top up with lipstick as and when needed. The hair will look good throughout the day, but take a travel size can of hairspray to top up if needs be, usually only needed when it's a windy/rainy day.
