Congratulations to all of you new brides-to-be if you got engaged over Christmas or New Year! It is such a special time and can feel overwhelming knowing where to start. Planning a wedding is a huge but fun task but it is also an expensive time. Choosing your suppliers can feel daunting but many of us work regularly with each other so if you book me for your bridal makeup, I can recommend some fabulous suppliers for your wedding day.

Many suppliers (myself included) are booked up a couple of years in advance as standard so I am currently taking bookings for bridal makeup through to the end of 2026. I hate the fact that “book in now to avoid disappointment” sounds like such a sales ploy but if you follow me on social media, you will know I don’t do selling… Instead I show you what I do and if I am the right fit for you, you book my services. I hate a hard sell and the cliche “limited availability” but genuinely, dates for 2024 and peak season 2025 are indeed very limited now.

So if you are looking for a bridal makeup look that is fresh, glam and naturally enhances your features get in touch. My style is not a one size fits all approach. Essentially I focus on a red carpet makeup style with beautiful, glowing skin and polished nude tones to bring out the best of you.

As a minimal makeup wearer myself, I understand the feeling of wanting to look like you are wearing makeup without it feeling heavy and caked on. If you are looking for a heavier glam, you only have to ask. That said my makeup style is classic and timeless. There will be no heavy contour, exaggerated eyebrows or trend makeup if you sit on my makeup stool!

Bridal trials are an important part of the planning process.  Trial appointments are a 2 way consultation.  Being prepared for your bridal trial gives us a starting point at the beginning of your appointment.  A few inspiration pictures are really helpful but please remember to be realistic.  Images on Pinterest and other social media platforms are very often edited to show a very flawless makeup application – removing all “real life” skin imperfections and fine lines.  Edited images can be very damaging for maintaining client expectations – but this can all be discussed at your bridal trial.  I will work with you to make sure you feel the very best version of yourself on your wedding day.  I am very experienced in bridal makeup and therefore your makeup will not only feel wearable but will also photograph beautifully without the need for professional editing.

I have lots of wonderful feedback and testimonials from my previous brides and bridal parties. Feel free to have a read through their kind words.

In 2023, I was delighted to have won my 14th industry award.  I was most recently named “Makeup Specialist of the Year 2022-23” for both the North East and overall UK at the English Makeup Awards.  I recently been nominated for the same award as well as a different category “Creative Makeup Artist of the Year” at the English Makeup Awards 2024.  I have also re-entered the Global Wedding Awards this year so fingers crossed to get shortlisted for that.  

Here are some of my favourite bridal party looks…
