What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Book services at least a year in advance.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I always love seeing animals at weddings! I have seen petting zoos, llamas, goats and owl and dog ring bearers! I also love interesting favours - wildflower seeds, honey from the couples family's bees and lottery tickets were some of the best!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I always recommend a trial run 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding during which I will work with you to create the perfect look to suit you and your hair and skin type. I can bring some images to inspire and give you ideas but if you have any of your own, even better. We will also discuss and organise timings for the day and makeup requirements for bridesmaids and mums as required. I will work with you until you are completely happy with your look and trials usually last between 2 and 3 hours.
On the day of the wedding I will schedule your morning with you to ensure there is always plenty of time and have your morning as stress free as possible. I am also happy to stay and be on standby to do touch-ups before photographs so that you look your absolute best.
What do you love most about your job?
Making people happy, feel beautiful, and helping them to have the best wedding morning possible.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Look after your skin - use a good moisturiser, sunscreen, gently cleanse and exfoliate every day. Walking and lots of water.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
My relaxed and friendly approach will help you to feel at ease. I allow plenty of extra time for each person so that there isn't any rush so you can really enjoy the getting ready process.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
The way I apply the makeup and the products I use (such as lip and cheek stain, mineral products and cry- proof mascara!) will give it great staying power. I am also happy to stay and be on standby to do touch-ups before photographs so that you look your absolute best. I recommend that you have your own lipstick/gloss to keep with you and a pressed powder.
