beautiful in person and photographs
I work with high end, quality makeup products by brands such as MAC Cosmetics, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Benefit, Nars, Urban Decay & Too Faced. I have tried and tested these products over the years and only use the ones I have complete faith in. For a wedding especially the products have to be long lasting and also photograph beautifully
Being a photographer and makeup artist I fully understand how important it is for your makeup to not only look beautiful in person but also in your photographs.
creating your perfect look
I feel a makeup artist should bring more than just her makeup to a bride’s special day. She should bring reassurance, a boost of confidence and above anything else the flawless finish that enhances a persons natural beauty. Being such an intimate part of a person’s wedding is an incredible feeling and none of my brides are allowed to walk out of the door without a beaming smile on their faces. From start to finish we work together to bring your perfect makeup look to life and to create something that simply says ‘you’. Whether that be a vintage, whimsical, romantic, modern, glamorous or natural!
Working as a photographer alongside being a makeup artist enables me to understand how makeup is photographed which is very important on your wedding day. Bridal makeup needs to accentuate facial features and emphasise natural beauty yet it should still look like the bride. It should make a bride look and feel like a million dollars on her special day!
what to expect at your trial
The first consultation is an opportunity for us to get to know each other little. Typically this involves copious amounts of tea and lots of chatting all about your wedding plans! During your trial we will discuss your skin type, any allergies, what sort of makeup you wear every day and how you would like to look on your wedding day. During the trial we work together to create the desired look experimenting with different shades, finishes and over all looks. This will give you the chance to see exactly how you makeup will look on your wedding day.
what my packages include
Every bridal package includes a consultation and trial at the studio 6-8 weeks before your wedding day. This gives us the chance to discuss your ideas and test out different looks. All packages include travel to postcodes within 30 minutes of SP9 7NH. Additional travel charges are calculated via AA route planner at 45p per mile. If you are getting married abroad please feel free to contact me for a custom quote that includes travel costs and accommodation. If you would like any additional information about my packages please feel free to contact me.
how to book
For bookings please contact me to check my availability on your wedding date. I'm usually booked at least a year in advance for Saturdays in the summer months so please do bear this in mind! From April - September there is a minimum of 3 people unless otherwise agreed. To secure your wedding date a non-refundable booking fee of £90.00 is due which can be paid via bank transfer or cash. This fee also serves as your trial payment. Please note your booking is not secured until the booking fee has been received.
what to expect on your wedding day
On the day I'll arrive in good time and usually start with other members of your bridal party first. Your bridal makeup will be the last thing we do before you get into your dress. I will always set up in the best naturally lit area as this means that your getting ready photographs are as well set up as they can be. For every wedding I create a schedule so everyone knows whats happening and who needs to be where for their hair and makeup. Before I wave a bride off I always make sure she is 100% happy and there’s a brilliant smile in place ready for her big day!
