I cover Surrey and London and anywhere else that my kit wheels will take me, having travelled abroad for my clients when needed. I understand what products will work well in different environments and ensure that only premium long-lasting products are used which look equally as gorgeous in person as they will do on camera so that your makeup will not only last the day but look great in your pictures, for years to come Some of my favourite brands that you will currently find in my kit are: Dior, Chanel, Bobbi Brown, Charlotte Tilbury, By Terry, Chantecaille, Shisheido and Dolce and Gabanna. I also offer Airbrushing which many brides love. I am frequently asked if it is possible to stay throughout the day to transition the look from the day to the evening and this absolutely no problem at all and can be factored into your quotation, so please just ask! Some of my lovely brides have said some lovely things; Ruth (Stylist) -"I just wanted to write to you and say what a great job you did on my wedding day. Both mine and Jessica's makeup looked wonderful and we were very happy with the results. I was really pleased I went with a professional after umming and ahhing, you made it fun and relaxing and I didnt have to touch my face once during the day" Emily (Grazia Magazine)"Just wanted to say thank you again for your amazing beauty work...you really made the morning special" Amy (Model) " I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for being the best makeup artist a Bride could wish for...I was so happy with my makeup and so were all my Bridesmaids...it was so fun calming and professional and we loved everything about getting ready with you" Zoe " Thank you so much for yesterday, my makeup and hair were still completely perfect at 4am when it all came off- magical"

What is your most memorable wedding?
Making up a beautiful bride in the middle of a German forest in 40 degree heat - and her makeup didn't budge! :)
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Making the bride look the most beautiful version of herself
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
To ensure a clear, glowing complexion on your wedding day, drink loads of water in the few weeks before, it really will make a difference!
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
Because I always have a trial with my brides before the big day, where we have discussed and perfected the chosen look, it means that on the morning of their wedding they can just sit back, relax and feel pampered!
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
You want your makeup to be tearproof, heatproof and long-lasting, so make sure you are using waterproof formulations and primers to ensure your makeup doesn't move.
