BRIDAL & WEDDINGS
Within an ever changing industry, I take pride in delivering timeless, elegant and ‘party proof’ bridal makeup, which you can look back on and say....”Wow, I felt incredible that day”. My aim is to enhance natural features, and make you look and feel your best, with a little glamour thrown in too- because who doesn’t love to feel a little fancy now and again? I want to ride the wedding wave with you, and inspire your trust in me to deliver the best service for your wedding day.
I feel honoured to have been a part of many brides ‘big day’ over the past 5, and my love for the ‘wedding sphere’ grows greater with every wedding booking I have the pleasure of attending.

My ‘totally gaga obsessed’ passion for beauty products, along with the product knowledge I’ve gained, and the skill set I’ve mastered, allows me to offer a bespoke service to everyone who sits in my makeup chair. Makeup is powerful, it’s our secret weapon, and what motivates me is being able to share that passion with my brides.
I aspire to create a moment of makeup magic, a space in which you and your bridal party feel calm and present, able to soak up every blissful moment happening around you- but most importantly, feel like a Hollywood starlet, about to have their red carpet debut. If you feeling like a superstar before you walk down the aisle, can count for even a fraction of the joy that amounts to your perfect wedding day, then my job is done.

The makeup trial is my opportunity to get to know you, your vision; and find out what makes you feel your best. During the session we will discuss details about your wedding- the dress, the wedding theme and colour scheme, the venue, hairstyles...the whole thing. All of these factors will be the building blocks for me when creating the makeup look during the trial. Taking on board these elements, and using products that best suit your complexion, eye & hair colour, to enhance your features, will be the making of a bespoke makeup look, to work harmoniously with every aspect of the wedding. The most important thing about wedding makeup, is that it reflects the best version of you as the bride, and knowing your personal style will help dictate the makeup look.
The trial will allow you to get to know me too; my style and my professional kit, to ensure I am the right fit for your wedding day. I am a trained beauty therapist too, so it's also a great opportunity to pick my brains about suitable skin care for you aswell!
I recommend having a trial approximately 3-6 months prior to your big day. Alternatively, if you're booking far in advance, it may be a good idea to have an initial trial upon booking, to get a feel for the look you'd like, and have a little 'makeup play', then follow up with a trial afew months before your wedding, to bring the elements together and finalise all of the magical details. I also offer trials for your bridal party; it's always lovely when a bride brings along their Mum, sister, or best pal, to have a trial too! It all becomes very real and exciting!
THINGS TO NOTE:
-Please arrive at your trial makeup free, if possible. This makes the 'makeup prep' step, a little easier and more efficient for me, it also gives a true representation of your skin in its natural state and will guide me as what products are best to use.
-I recommend wearing clothes that reflect the colour of your wedding day outfit, to your trial. Clothing can hugely alter how the makeup looks, and sits upon a persons face. I can gauge how the makeup will realistically look on the wedding day, and if anymore/less product is needed, if you wear your outfit colour to the trial.
-Prior to the trial, it's a good idea to gather together some inspiration photos, or makeup looks you like. Whether that's from my own Instagram, Pinterest, or elsewhere, it starts to paint a picture of what you're wanting to go for, and gives us a point of reference. Grab afew photos of you when you felt your most beautiful too!

MY MAKEUP KIT
' A little bit of luxury, no matter the person or occasion'
I consider my professional makeup kit to be my very own treasure chest, packed full of products and goodies, to make a bride feel magical. Makeup products are as much of a passion of mine as doing the makeup look itself, so it's an area I focus a lot of my attention. It's so important for me as a makeup artist, to be able to offer a range of brands and products within my arsenal, that cater for everyone, no matter your skin type, skin tone, age or preference, including products from cruelty free brands. With brands ranging from 'Charlotte Tilbury', 'Hourglass', 'Glossier', 'Nars', 'Bobbi Brown' and more, there's a little bit of luxury, no matter the person or occasion. It's an aspect of my business I am very proud of, and love sharing my kit, and sprinkling a bit of makeup magic with my brides and clients!
