I felt like the best version of me
To anyone umming and ahhing about booking Kay, you 100% will not be disappointed! I'm very much a novice when it comes to makeup and I really don't wear a lot, so when it came to booking a makeup artist for my wedding day my search began very skeptically as the last thing I wanted was to not look and feel like myself. From the very first message following my website enquiry, Kay put me at ease - she assured me that her specialism was natural looking makeup and that the ultimate goal was to make sure I was comfortable and felt my best. The trial was great, I knew exactly what I was going to look like on the day and Kay made very extensive notes to make sure everything would be replicated, and it was perfectly! Myself, my maid of honour and my mum all had a fabulous wedding morning being pampered by Kay, we all had so many compliments! Kay even helped me out with the buttons on the back of my dress as she happened to have an eyelet hook which we had neglected to bring, she really does come stocked with anything you may need. For anyone on the fence, you will not be disappointed by Kay's service from start to finish. She helped to make my day amazing ❤️

Perfect make-up for your wedding
Kay did my make-up for my wedding along with my bridesmaids and Mum's. She gave great advice during the planning process and was very attentive. At the trial she listened to exactly what I wanted and made sure to take notes ready for the day. She created a natural look so I still looked like myself, but had beautiful bridal make-up at the same time. She was very friendly and helped everything run smoothly on the wedding morning. The bridesmaids and my Mum were pleased with their make-up which was also natural but had their usual style within it too. The airbrush foundation was incredible as it lasted all day but almost felt like you weren't wearing anything.

Made me feel like a princess
Kay did my make up for myself, my bridesmaids and mother in law back in the summer at Bordesley Park. I cannot thank Kay enough for her expertise, flexibility to cater for everyone and her calmness! I really appreciated being able to meet her before the day to discuss my plans and to have a full trial. She was professional, friendly and made me feel like a princess for the day. Thank you Kay x

Can not recommend her enough!
Kay put my nerves at rest from the instant we had our pre consultation. She made me feel amazing on my wedding day and even my trial and was just an extension of the bridal party on the day. Can not recommend her enough!

Frequently Asked Questions
(9)

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural, Classic, Timeless, Relaxed, Cruelty-Free

What about your business are you most proud of?

Being cruelty free. I strive to only use products that are ethical & paraben free & vegan where possible. This means I can offer brides an amazing experience without jeopardizing their ethical & sustainable beliefs.

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

Have fun with it! It shouldn't be stressful, after all it's an exciting part of your journey as a couple so, make sure you plan your day how you wish. It's your vision and it must reflect who you are as a couple and not be the ideas of someone else. You don't want to have any regrets. Also, use Bridebook!! It's such a great tool to help you plan your wedding down to the very last detail.

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

I always love to see the couple reflected in their planning. Be it the flowers, centerpieces or cake it's always a great touch. I think my favourite touch so far would have to be a Labrador. The brides' father unfortunately passed away before her wedding day and the couple had taken on his beloved dog. He was the one who gave her away on the day and walked so proudly down the isle with her in his best collar. Not a dry eye in the house when her brother brought him in to see her before she left for the ceremony, I can tell you.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Your first point of contact will be via Email. We then arrange a call/video call to discuss your requirements in detail. Once all your questions have been answered and fine details discussed , I can draw up a bespoke quote and send that over via email for you to look through in your own time. If you decide to go ahead with the booking, a booking form will be drawn up and sent over electronically for you to sign. Once complete, your booking is exclusive to you and your date secured. We then get on to the fun bit...Trials! These take place around 8 weeks prior to the big day and are held at my home makeup and treatment studio here in Worcester. I will take detailed notes and photographs so we can recreate your bridal look to perfection on the wedding morning. When I am booked for your wedding, I am your PA from the moment the ink is dry on the booking form until you walk out the door to say your 'I-do's', nothing is too much trouble for me and I will ensure you look and feel a million dollars every step of the way.

What do you love most about your job?

I love sharing a part of a couples day. Being a part of their memories for years to come is just an honour. I love the festivities of bridal preparation and just love being around people. I will never tire of helping someone to look and feel their very best and play such an important role on someones wedding day. My job is not work, it's passion.

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

SKINCARE! It's the basis for a great makeup. If you have a good skincare regime your makeup will apply easier & look flawless meaning you will need less to look the very best version of 'you' possible on the day of the wedding. Do listen and introduce any recommendations your makeup pro gives you. It really will make such a difference to the finished application.

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

Be at her beckon call! I make sure that she gets to relax for the whole time she's sat in my chair and even when she steps out of it. I keep a very close eye on my brides and ensure they are fed and watered, kept calm and relaxed at all times. I usually recommend that she gives her phone to a trusted person for her time with me & get her mum or maid of honour to deal with questions/deliveries until we are finished, so she gets to switch off. I also use fantastic aromatherapy based skincare products that help to calm & sooth the mind.

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

Drink plenty of water throughout the day. For each alcoholic drink have a glass of water with it. Have blotting paper and tissues handy (usually left with a trusted bridesmaid) & her top up lippy. Everything else will stay put until the evening ends. If tears are shed, use a blotting tissue & dab the eye area lightly don't rub - I will teach you 'the Hollywood cry' don't worry.
