My passion for hair and makeup originated in the beautiful Lake District. I was lucky enough to be a wedding specialist in a well established salon which gave me a solid foundation. After 7 years building my craft up North I decided to make the move down to the bright lights of London. Working alongside some extremely talented creatives and artists I was able to push my career to the next level. To this day I am constantly building and updating my skills in both hair and makeup and loving every minute!
For me, wedding mornings hold a special place in my heart. Over the last 11 years I have seen many different trends for bridal hair and makeup, and I fall in love with each and every one! However, spending the final moments with a Bride before she becomes a ‘Mrs’ is incredibly special and completely unique every time. I am always excited to hear your perfect bridal vision and help you bring it to life.
Life in the Fast Lane!
My second love is the world of fashion! When I’m not up to my elbows in veils and flowers I am behind the scenes on photoshoots and travelling the world. The thrill of seeing my work in print in magazines or advertising a product or item is still so exiting. Over the years I have worked with a number of different brands and creatives including Fenwicks and Urban Celebrity. Having the opportunity to work in a creative environment has pushed my skills and my confidence to new levels, it also means for my fashion forward Brides I can bring this element into their bridal style.
There are a variety of different brands in my hair and makeup kit including Marc Jacobs, Urban Decay, Laura Mercier, L’Oreal, Kerestase and many more. At the moment I am loving my bronzer from Marc Jacobs, it sits beautifully on every skin tone giving you a soft, sun-kissed glow. My hair hero product is L’Oreal’s Pli, this wonder product means you can wash your hair the morning of, and still have that ‘lived in’ hair that is easy to manage! Using a varied range of products allows me to tailor your bespoke look to be specific to you.
I do love getting back up North, pulling on my hiking boots and taking long walks in the fells. Seeing new places, in the UK and abroad, I am lucky to have friends and family in all sorts of places, a good excuse to get away somewhere different. Friends and family are an important fixture in my life, having time out doing something different is always high on my priority list, I love a challenge! I do also love getting into the city, visiting a new cocktail bar and having a good dance!
I would love to hear about your plans for your special day. Whether you are after something bold and daring or clean and classic, with my experience I can achieve the perfect look for you. I very much look forward to hearing from you.
