On one of the most enjoyable days of your life my aim is to make you look and feel the best possible version of yourself. My calm and professional manner will ensure that we work together to create a bespoke look that is just right for you. I will listen to every detail about your wedding day and ensure the looks we create compliment you and your day beautifully. My makeup is best described as soft, timeless and fresh whilst enhancing your own natural beauty.
A trial is essential for the bride. I recommend that this lasts approximately 2 hours. In that time I will listen to every detail about your day. We will look at colour schemes, dresses, flowers and any ideas you have for the overall feel for your wedding. We will then work together to create a look that makes you look and feel amazing and that you feel comfortable with. If you are a little unsure of what will suit you I will be able to help guide you with my years of bridal experience. Once you are happy with everything we will create a schedule together to help you plan the smooth running of your wedding morning to ensure it is enjoyable and stress free.
All services include lashes if required. I only use products from reliable brands such as Charlotte Tilbury, Dior and Armani to ensure your makeup lasts all day. I am able to cater for brides who have preferences for vegan and cruelty free products or who may need something a little extra like covering a tattoo. I can provide guidance if required on the best way to prepare your skin for your wedding day to ensure you look the best you possibly can. I am able to recommend a highly skilled skin care expert to provide you with a free consultation to help you on the build up to your wedding day should you want to. As a fully qualified beauty therapist myself I am able to carry out treatments such as HD Brows, LVL Lashes, manicures and pedicures to help you prepare for your big day. A full list of my treatments can be seen in the beauty section of my website.
On your wedding day I will travel to your chosen wedding destination to get you and your bridal party ready. I always stay will my brides until they are ready to walk down the aisle to make sure any last minute top ups and adjustments can be made. If you need me to stay longer, be available for touch ups throughout your big day or even a change of look for the evening this can always be arranged.
Your bridal party may include Mother of the Bride and Groom, Bridesmaids, Flower Girls, Wedding Guests - I can accommodate all. I am very used to working with large bridal parties. At the trial we can discuss looks and timings for your party to ensure that your wedding morning runs smoothly and stress free. All members of your bridal party are welcome to have a trial before the wedding day but this is not always necessary.
I am also able to provide beauty treatments to your bridal party before your big day at my salon in Nantwich. Why not all come and get your nails done and enjoy a glass of Prosecco together! See my beauty section for a full list of treatments.
If you are getting married abroad and are going to do your makeup yourself or you just feel more comfortable doing it yourself a makeup lesson could be for you. Over 2 hours I will advise on colours, products and techniques to ensure you look amazing on your day. I will give you professional tips on how to apply your makeup and how to ensure it lasts you all day, great if you are getting married in hotter climates.

Should you require both hair and makeup services for your wedding day I am very happy to recommend three times Wedding Industry Awards winner Gill Roslan-Oates to work alongside to me. Gill has worked as a hairdresser since she was 15 and has years of bridal experience. Gill and I met over 20 years ago and have since developed a very close professional working partnership. With our years of experience we are able to ensure that we can create the most beautiful and bespoke bridal look just for you. We are also happy to combine your hair and makeup trial for you on the same day so you are able to see how you will look on your wedding day.. We pride ourselves on the relationships we develop with you to ensure you have upmost confidence in our professionalism and reliability.
On your wedding day we will travel to your venue so you don't have to worry about travelling to a salon to have your hair and makeup done enabling you to relax and enjoy the morning with friends and family around you. You can leave the detail to us!
Together are able to offer a wide range of hair, makeup, airbrush makeup and beauty services. From experience we have found that having a separate makeup artist and hairdresser ensures that your morning runs smoothly and removes the stress on one person to provide both hair and makeup services. It also allows us to cater for larger bridal parties if required and allows an extra pair of hands to help out with those last minute preparations!
