What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
#1 Tip for couples i think... Always remember this day is both of your days and not someone else's. People will always try and sway your suggestions, but if you're happy, stick to your guns xx
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
At my friends wedding they did donations to help the Black Rhinos instead of favours, which i thought was a lovely alternative.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I don't usually see the groom, but i do style Grooms hair from time to time :)
My first initial contact spent with my bridal client would be to have a few chats via email or phone first regarding their bridal party package, then a confirmation of booking via email. We then arrange the hair rehearsal.
At the rehearsal i love to know about the whole theme or day that is planed, and also see a picture of the dress as this helps me visualise the hair style. We chat about the morning schedule too, we then chat through ideas and get styling :)
Rehearsals finish when the style is created, i don't put a time limit on them, but it usually lasts up-to 2.5hrs.
What do you love most about your job?
The bit I love the most about my job is the fact that every single person is completely unique, therefore making my job so varied!
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
#1 Beauty tip... If you are thinking of wearing clip-in extensions and also thinking of changing your hair colour, change you hair colour first. You will need to colour match your hair, so always best to buy any hair extensions after the new colour.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
I have found the best way to keep my bride calm is to remind her that i am always aware of what is going on in the room, and if at any point she needs 5 minutes to herself, i just say to her to give me the nod and i will help her to get the quiet space she needs.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
For keeping your hair fresh throughout the wedding day, ask one of your bridesmaids or friends to have a small soft brissle brush to hand, and some travel hairspray. A gentle brush through of the hair, apply some hairspray, add a bit of lippy and a squirt of perfume before the evening guests arrive and this will really help make the day and night feel different and you'll feel refreshed :)
