What is your most memorable wedding?
My most memorable wedding would have to be when I got my best friend and her sisters ready for her wedding. It was such an honour to be a part of someone’s wedding who meant so much to me!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

What about your business are you most proud of?
I’m most proud that so many brides trust me to be in charge of their look for such an important day. I am really passionate about making my brides feel their absolute best on their wedding morning.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don’t leave things too late, and once you get to the day stop worrying, just enjoy your day and cherish every moment!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Firstly we will have a chat so I can get an idea of your needs, and provide you with a quotation and full details of my services. This usually takes place over the phone or via email.
The first time we meet in person is usually at your trial! I usually run trials 2-3 months before the wedding, but if you would like one sooner that is fine. Trials take place at my home studio, where we can get to know each other a bit better and experiment with different styles. After the trial I will come up with a schedule for the wedding morning to help keep everything on track, and running as smoothly as possible.
On the wedding morning I will arrive at your chosen venue with plenty of time to set up, and complete all the services you require to get you and your bridal party ready. I will even treat you to some skin care treats and a touch up kit to keep with you for the rest of the day. I will stay around up until you leave for the ceremony, for any last minute emergency touch ups!
What do you love most about your job?
I love getting to meet so many lovely brides and their families, being part of such an important and personal morning is truly special.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Try and start a skincare regime at least 6 months before the wedding - the better your skin is then the better your makeup will be on the wedding day!
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
I always strive to make my brides feel as supported as possible on their wedding mornings. I start by sticking to my schedule, so there are no mad panics to get everyone ready on time.
I’m always there to be a listening ear for my brides, whether they are feeling nervous, anxious, stressed or excited. Whether you need a little reassurance or someone to have a laugh with on your wedding morning I am 100% there for you!
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
I will provide you with a touch up kit, which will help to keep your makeup looking as fresh as possible, and I try to use long lasting products as much as I can.
Sometimes tears are inevitable on a wedding day, but make sure to dab them away and not wipe them! Try not to touch your face or hair too much, but most of all try not to worry about what you look like and just enjoy your day as much as you can!
