It’s ten years since I first started painting faces.
During that time I’ve clocked up hundreds of hours of wedding mornings, worked with lovely families from all over the world ranging from four to 84, celebrated freckles and wafted litres of lavender oil under nervy noses!
My work, skills and experience have naturally evolved but my approach to bridal makeup and hair remains rooted in helping brides create an extra special version of themselves for the big day, whilst remaining firmly inside their comfort zone.
I’m passionate about designing beautiful, bespoke wedding day looks that emphasize your natural beauty and individuality – a bridal look gorgeously true to who you, to help make you look and feel awesome.
“The hair and makeup were so brilliant, I felt beautiful but completely myself.”
It's also hugely important to me that you have an enjoyable, hassle free wedding morning as the beautiful bride.
My aim is to help create a relaxed, fun environment for you and your bridal party.
I’m a great reader of rooms having once worked in crisis management. And I'm always happy to help where I can – I’ve got a fair few brides into their dresses, cut out lots of labels, zipped people up, pinned on buttonholes, provided plasters and sewing kits, emergency safety pins, extra hair grips, hunted down ginger tea and the list could go on!
"She's calm, composed, but at the same time incredibly warm and reassuring."
Before I was a wedding makeup and hair artist, I moved around the world doing PR and marketing. I relocated from London to Nuremberg to Johannesburg for various jobs styling lookbooks, running events, art directing photoshoots and creating press materials over the course of a few years. Eventually coming back to retrain at the London College of Fashion and then onto Brighton, where I put down roots.
In addition to bridal makeup and hair, I have previously been a contributer and expert on the beauty panel of Your Sussex Wedding magazine where I helped solve reader's makeup and beauty dilemmas. I have also volunteered with the women’s cancer charity Look Good, Feel Better.
I'm fortunate to have had an amazing wedding in 2014, and have since added two energetic, spirited daughters into the mix. When I think back, it was an incredible day. The hard work, effort and attention to detail paid off and we had a wonderful sunny afternoon surrounded by the people we love most in life.
You too can have a makeup and hair look gorgeously true to you...
I am always more than happy to talk on the phone or meet for a cuppa and have a chat about wedding makeup and hair plans for your big day.
