Thank you so much
Wedding makeup For many brides getting your makeup done is a huge part of your wedding day. My now sister-in-law’s makeup looked stunning on her wedding day and so I asked her for her makeup artists details. That’s when I met Rachel. From start to finish she has been incredible. Being a covid bride my wedding plans changed so many times and Rachel was there every step of the way. As you can imagine I became quite stressed that I might have to do my own makeup for my wedding day - something that I desperately didn’t want to do. Rachel offered so many different options and even offered to do an on the day wedding makeup tutorial for me. Luckily she was able to come on the day and do both mine and my mum’s makeup for our short ceremony. I knew exactly which look I was trying to achieve and Rachel understood this. She did our makeup beautifully - it was flawless - and I certainly felt extremely confident for the day. Rachel is so easy to get on with and she calmed my nerves while creating the perfect look for my day taking all aspects into consideration. She even found the perfect shade of lipstick that complemented my wedding flowers and my daughters dress. Overall I can not recommend Rachel enough - she is amazing. We are having a big wedding in a few years time and I can’t wait for Rachel to do mine, my mums and all my bridesmaids makeup. Not only is Rachel and incredible makeup artist, she’s an incredibly person too. Thank you so so much!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural radiant beauty, timeless and elegant

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

Surround yourself with a team of suppliers who are passionate about their craft and you can be confident you will be well looked after !

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

A wedding at the Crab and Lobster in Thirsk. We all new that a very special friend of the couple and the family was going to surprise them by marrying them. The happiness, and the tears of joy when she stepped forward and took over the service was very special.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I would normally chat with the couple first and answer any questions they have, if possible it’s great to have met beforehand for a coffee and a chance to get to know each other before the bridal trial.

What do you love most about your job?

I love the people, I love my brides. There is nothing better than making their vision come to life.

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

Don’t book a spray tan or a facial that you have never had before very close to the wedding. If you think you would like a spray tan before the wedding, then make sure that you test it out a few weeks before the big day.

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

Each bride has different needs and circumstances, so my approach will complement each of my clients. There is no “One size fits all” - that is why it’s important to find the right people.

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

Your makeup and hair should carry you through the day to the evening, but I always recommend having a translucent face powder and your lip colour to hand for any touch ups during your big day.
