What is your most memorable wedding?
Probably the first wedding I did. It was a boiling hot day and I was providing makeup for 5 ladies.
I was a little bit nervous as it was my first wedding but I needn't have been, it was a lovely day and I really enjoyed being involved.

Look after your skin in the run up to your wedding - get quality sleep and drink plenty of water
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
In addition to building a rapport at the trial and in the run up to the wedding I keep brides calm by remaining calm myself and giving them some time to relax during the makeup application - it is really nice if the bridal party can let the bride take some time to herself at this point
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
There are a few options:
Have a small bag (which your Maid of Honour could look after) containing miniature products such as perfume, lipstick, powder and oil blotting sheets - you can then quickly top up.
Book your Makeup Artist to stay for the day or return in the evening to retouch or even change your makeup
Consider having Airbrushed makeup such as Airbase - the silicone base means it offers long lasting coverage
