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

Describe your typical process with a couple.
It is so important that you look and feel your absolute best when it is your special day! There is nothing I love more than making that happen. To begin, we have an in-depth consultation (usually over a delish coffee) about your vision. When the booking is confirmed, we will create a mood board to consider all the various options for you and your bridal party. Once a vision is pinned down, we will spend some time discussing skincare and how to best prepare for the big day (My sister company Bellisa Beauty offers the perfect, bespoke packages to work through any problems and to get that glow!). Following this, a makeup trial is organised to help us experiment with the ideas, making sure to achieve the desired look!
On the day, I can travel to any home or venue within Ireland and remain with you until you set off for the ceremony. I always ensure that the getting ready part of the day is a fabulous experience and that you feel relaxed at all times. Getting ready can be nerve-racking, but together we plan an itinerary before the big day to ensure you can enjoy being pampered with no worries.
What do you love most about your job?
Meeting such beautiful, strong caring and radiant women!!
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
All my brides receive a goody bag on the morning of their wedding. Inside are the essentials you will need throughout the day. Get your chief bridesmaid in charge of having your lipstick and pressed powder so you can flawlessly dance the night away!
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
PLAN! Before the big day i sit down and work out a detailed itinerary for the morning of the wedding. From arrival time, order of make ups, looks and any other details to make sure that everything runs perfectly smooth!
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Enjoy it. There is nothing more beautiful than your smile so set aside your nerves, don't worry about what others are doing or saying and take in every moment.
