What is your most memorable wedding?
A 2 day 12hrs a day wedding event..... Its hard not to go for that one as it clearly took the most hours. An English rose themed wedding the first day staying for an evening change and touch ups and an elaborate moroccan themed bbq the day after... once again staying for touch ups and an evening change. It was a lovely weekend, great weather, food and such lovely people.

Describe your typical process with a couple.
My process is with the bride, mother of the bride, maids and various spectators. It starts with going over the details and arranging a trial.... we start this with an informal chat... a look at the dress and a talk over ideas and possibilities. its important to get a real feel of each invividual bride. Then go on with the trial of upto 3 hrs of creating looks and documenting them. I provide correspondence via email, txt, phone, facetime. We then go onto the day with our pre arranged look or if necessary upon further request make adjustments. everything is tailored to individuals requirements and wishes. I will develop a time plan for you that means that I am there until you are. So that everything is perfect and there are no mishaps.
