I have been lucky enough to work in the wedding industry for over 10 years. I originally worked at the very beautiful Warren House, Kingston Upon Thames as part of the wedding and events team. During my time there, I used to watch the talented hair and makeup artists arrive and makeup our lovely brides. I've always loved makeup and have been creative with hair so after getting married myself, my amazing husband Paul supported me in my decision to tap into my artistic side and re-train as a hair and makeup artist.
This is the best decision I have ever made and since qualifying (My training was with Jemma Kidd Makeup School, Patrick Cameron, Windsor College and Beauty Call) I have been helping around 90 brides a year find a look they love for their Wedding Day. I also love working on Photo Shoots for editorials, helping Teenagers with their hair and makeup for their proms and getting ladies ready for special occasions such as ladies days at the races, anniversaries and even Cabin Crew interviews!
In 2010 I bought a franchise from a reputable and lovely company called Beauty Call and ran the Surrey and West Sussex Bridal hair and makeup agency for them along with being on their core team of Hair and Makeup Artists. Beauty Call was a fantastic way to get to grips with the Bridal hair and makeup industry and to make some great friends in the business.
I started my own brand in October 2015 and now settled with my family (Paul and our 2 little boys) on the border of Surrey and West Sussex I have never been happier...
What I’m passionate about
My main aim is to enhance a ladies natural beauty and emphasise their best features. I absolutely love Bridal Trials, this gives the Bride and I a chance to experiment and create a style together.
I believe in keeping up to date with new hair and makeup looks and invest in new training each year to update my skills and keep unto date with trends.
