What is your most memorable wedding?
I worked with another artist for a large wedding at Ardington House, a stunning venue in Wantage, Oxfordshire. I did the makeup for 7 bridesmaids and the Mother of the Bride. The Bridesmaids wore the most beautiful sarees and the Bride had a gorgeous embellished bridal gown. There was such a mix of events for the wedding from Afternoon Tea to Indian Traditions. It was beautiful!
What about your business are you most proud of?
