I am lucky enough to be able to use a huge range of brands as I am not sponsored or on commission from any one company. So I pick the best from each and as such have a lovely range of products, from Chanel to Charlotte Tilburry, from Bobbi Brown to Benefit. The list goes on and on and on. I have a lot of options to cover all skin tones and all requests. Come and find out x

I believe that a wedding trial is extremely important and a good thing to do even if you are completely sure about the look that you want to achieve for your wedding day.

A hair and makeup trial is usually the first opportunity you will have to meet your makeup artist, meaning that you have a familiar face there on the wedding day itself and not someone you have only read about online.

It is a good idea to see what the look is like on yourself as opposed to the models wearing the makeup or hair from the images that you have gathered on Google/Pinterest. That way you can adapt bits to really suit you.

And I usually like to book the trial for about one to two months ahead of the wedding day itself. This way, you know what your hair length will roughly be on the wedding day, and how to best care for your skin ahead of the wedding.

I look forward to meeting you all for your trials this year x

Lipstick is usually a staple part of any bride’s wedding makeup. It brings the whole look together and can make a makeup seem complete once on.

I find that using a lip liner acts as a perfect primer, both filling out the lips and enhancing the lipstick colour, plus the longevity of the wear that you will get out of your lipstick will be greatly improved.

One of my favourite go-to colours for bridal lip liner is ‘Pillow Talk’ by Charlotte Tilbury. Lipstick can really work for you or do nothing for you, you have to hold each lipstick colour up to your face and you will immediately see which is the case.

A good lipstick colour will enhance your eyes and make your skin look healthy. I instantly see how subtle changes in choice of lipstick colour can make your wedding look come alive and I look forward to helping you find your perfect match!

I often get asked how to best prepare for a wedding trial.

There are a few things that will be integral ahead of the trial and others that are just very helpful.

1) Have images of what you want to achieve with you (on your phone is fine) for your wedding trial
2) Bring anything that you want to try in the hairstyle i.e comb/pin for your wedding trial
3) Bring any hair extensions (if are able to pre-curl them, please do as it will help) to your wedding trial
3) Come without your makeup on where possible to the wedding trial
4) Do not pre-straighten your hair if you are planning on having it up or curled at all at the wedding trial
5) Wash your hair the night before the trial and go easy on the conditioner before the wedding trial

All of these points will help for a better, quicker wedding trial, allowing more time and energy to be put into those all important details to make your look perfect for you.

Christmas weddings are just as romantic as the traditional summer weddings and the hair and makeup at a Christmas wedding is always a joy to create. It can be extremely cold and sometimes wet in the winter in the UK, and so you need your Christmas wedding makeup to withstand anything which the weather throws at you.
It might be that you opt for a fresh face with a Red lipstick, or some of that lovely golden shimmer for your eyes. It could be that you want your Christmas wedding look to include some kind of sparkle in the hair, perhaps in the form of a hair vine or a tiara.

Whatever your Christmas wedding look, you can add some real Christmas magic to your wintery creation.

We take care with every member of the bridal party so that everyone is happy – we want happy bridesmaids.

The bride has had their trial and therefore looks forward to the final look on their big day. But for others in the bridal party, they are often yet to try their look. This is why it is integral to have a makeup artist that can really interpret what each bridesmaid wants and who can execute this to a high standard.

I love to make all of my bridesmaids just as happy as my brides. So whoever you are and whatever your role on the big day, you deserve to be happy with your finished look and to feel confident and beautiful too. Happy bridesmaids equal an even happier bride!

Celebrities have major influence over makeup trends and therefore this also trickles into the wedding makeup choices that are being made year on year.

Ultra dewy or clear looking skin is on trend and creating this no-makeup fresh-faced look actually requires a lot of skill and ironically time and care over the makeup application. It is especially popular for weddings as brides love to feel young and fresh faced to compliment their white dress.

Nude but full looking lips are also proving popular thanks to our celebrity friends making them so. A fuller lip can be achieved with just lip-liner alone and no need for filler. And a nude lip is easy to maintain, something else necessary when you want the lips to stay looking great for the full big day.

I have started gifting each of my brides a small ‘lip kit’ to keep your lips on form throughout the day, so your makeup stays perfect from morning until night.

My USPs are the things that make me who I am. Why choose me over another hair and makeup artist? Well, if any of the following things appeal to you, then perhaps I am your lady.

I care that you are happy. I do not stop a trial until you are genuinely happy with the look that we have decided on.

I am a perfectionist. If there is anyone more determined out there to make your wedding day hair and makeup completely perfect, I would like to meet them!

I am calm under pressure. Wedding mornings can throw all sorts at you and interruptions can happen constantly, so sometimes time can run away from us, but I thrive on making sure that the time I say we will finish IS always the time that we do finish whilst remaining relaxed.

I want to make it feel effortless having me as a part of your day. I am very grateful to be a part of your wedding morning, and as such I see part of my job as fitting in with the mood of the room. It is often commented that when booking me it is like having a friend or member of the family around.

When it comes to wedding makeup do’s and don’ts, it is really important to listen to the professionals.

Do find your perfect primer. Every skin type deserves it’s primer match. A primer should balance and prepare your skin for the rest of the makeup.

Do find your ideal foundation. Is it dewy or matte, lightweight or full coverage?

Do make sure that you get your bronzer in the correct shade for you. Some can be very orange and this is not a good look when you are trying to create a natural looking makeup.

Don’t use cheap makeup brands because you are trying to save money, premium brands often far exceed the cheap brands in terms of their quality and application.

Don’t get carried away copying a makeup look that has been modelled by someone who is completely different looking from yourself – it will not look the same.

And don’t apply the makeup yourself if you are unsure or nervous about doing it – just use a professional and you will get a result which far exceeds anything you will be able to achieve when you should be feeling pampered and relaxed on your wedding morning.

For most Brides, wedding eyes are the most important part of their makeup.

I always get asked to enhance my bridal client’s eyes, and there are many ways to draw attention to wedding eyes.

One great way to enhance your eyes is to use an eyeshadow that picks out your eye colour.

The second way to enhance your wedding eyes is to highlight in the inner corner of the eye.

The third way to draw attention to your eyes is to put on lashes that add volume and length. These do not need to be outrageous to draw attention. The more subtle they are, the more that others will think they may be your own luscious lashes. No one needs to know!
