Wedding Bridal Party Make up and Hair packagesLook beautiful and feel special on your big day!

An exceptional make up artist helps set the tone for your whole day. In saying this, my job is to not only make you look your most beautiful (and stay that way all day and night!) but also to make you feel happy and relaxed so you can get maximum enjoyment from your wedding day!

My aim is to ensure you are calm, happy, having fun and of course looking beautiful!

As I also offer bridal and bridal party hair services, it will save you a possible trip to the hairdressers on your wedding morning, enabling you to relax and enjoy the morning even more.

To find the perfect look for each member of the bridal party, and to get to know each other, I highly recommend having at least one trial for bride, bridesmaids and mother of the bride.

The trial is important because it allows me, as an artist, to understand your vision for one of the biggest days of your life. We can share and discuss wedding makeup ideas, and it also allows me to offer you advice and explain any necessary changes to beauty routines leading up to the day. The trial lasts up to 2 hours for the bride alone and we will try out looks we both feel suit you best until you are 100% satisfied.

I hold trials at home in Ely, or I can come to the place of your choosing. For international, destination weddings, please check out the info below!

Destination Weddings

As an experienced traveller myself, I love nothing more than a wedding abroad. Finding an artist to suit your needs on your big day, while in a foreign country, is no easy task and can be daunting, especially when booking hair & makeup together. Its not only important to have the perfect location, dress and photographer but having the right hair and makeup to complete the look is the final icing on the cake.

I have covered and travelled as far as Scotland, USA (New Jersey and Texas), Spain, Italy and Thailand. My experience with international weddings means I am equipped with the skills to ensure hair and makeup stays in place whether in rain, snow, extreme sun and heat! No distance is too far, no climate too tricky!

For European weddings I have a minimum booking of £450 for the day - travelling to you, one day before the event and for worldwide weddings a minimum £600 for the day- travelling two days before, dependant on location. For more information on my wedding destination packages, please get in touch and I will be happy to answer all of your questions!

I am currently taking bookings in France, Croatia & Spain. So if you're in the process of booking your destination wedding, please don't hesitate to get in touch!


Trials are to be paid one week before the trial day.

Wedding Day make-up/hair will require a deposit of £60 (non-refundable) on confirmation within 2-6months before the event and £100 (non-refundable) for 6+ months before the event. The deposit must be paid to hold the date. Once trial is complete, 50% of the total fees will be due within 3 days, to secure the booking or else it will be released.

Cancellations require at least 6 weeks notice prior to wedding or full payment must be made or 10 weeks prior to the wedding if getting married abroad.
