at times my saving grace
Ria is absolutely amazing, from trial to wedding day and then a re run for more photos I cant fault a thing!! Trial was exactly what I wanted it to be, Ria found the perfect style to suit me. On the day Ria and another lady (im so so sorry ive forgotten her name) done hair and make up for myself, matron of honour, mother of the groom and 4 bridesmaids - every single one was perfect! My hair and make up stayed put all day long and looked as perfect in wedding photos at 10pm as it did at the church in the early afternoon. Ria was helpful, kind, bubbly and at times my saving grace with her kind words and willingness to lend a hand where it was needed! Also to add my hair cut and colour was great too - looking forward to next appointment :-) From the bottom of my heart Ria THANKYOU for everything you've done, the little things as well as the absolute perfection you made of myself and my bridal party on our big day xx

immediately put at ease by Ria's experience
I travelled from Essex to Norwich earlier this week for a family wedding and I am so pleased I came across this Facebook page as it meant I was able to book Ria to put my hair up for me. Having never met before, I was immediately put at ease by Ria's experience and what a lovely, bubbly lady she is too. I loved my hair and it stayed in place throughout the day and night. If I'm ever in Norwich again for an occasion, I would not hesitate to try and book in with Ria again. Thank-you again xx

she works miracles
What an absolute star!!! Loved every minute of my wedding planning and the day with Ria. Everyone loved the hair and make-up (she works miracles) and after a few trials elsewhere she was the only person that really understood the retro vibe I wanted. THANK YOU SO MUCH! xxxxxxx

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 style in 5 adjectives.

Romantic / Creative / Bespoke / Secure / Stylish

What about your business are you most proud of?

That I have remained one person doing what I love creating beautiful individual work.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Keep it personal, keep it you! ;)

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

So many... they are often what makes it! quirks and unexpected surprises that keep it individually authentic.

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.

What do you love most about your job?

variety... creativity... meeting people.... helping people look and feel ruddy amazing and the best version of themselves!

What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?

Don't forget antiperspirant or brushing your teeth on the morning in your excitement! - hugging people all day and breathing on them an all!

How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?

Im a human being, not a fake ever smiling powder puff... I like to speak honestly with people, get to know them... make them laugh. Its always good to explain that those small nerves are a blessing... they are there because you care in a nervous excitement - now that's human!

What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?

Self confidence, not letting the "circus" get the better of you. There is nothing more beautiful than confidence, grace and kindness! - I'll fix the rest :) x
