Make-up Trial :

The trial is the time we will spend together perfecting the make up look and having a chat about the day. We will discuss different ideas and I will suggest colours that I think would work best for you as well as listening to any ideas you would like to try.


After years of experience with both weddings and magazine shoots I have a very trained eye to look at a face and know what colours, tones and contouring will really bring out your best features.

I have worked on brides that wear minimal make-up and others that would really like the make-up to stand out. Whatever your requirement I will come up with the perfect look for you. I use only the top brands of skincare and makeup which will last all day and feel amazing on the skin!


When I have finished the make-up I note down the colours I’ve used and visually memorise it. The only thing that may need touching up during the wedding day is the lipstick which I can order for you if required.

The duration of the trial usually takes around 1-2. Hair trials can be organised same day as the make-up trial or separately.

Bridesmaids and mum are welcome to come along and have a trial themselves or just have a chat about ideas they may have for the day.

Hair :

Although I do style hair for most of my editorial work I prefer to focus on the make up for weddings. I find that the timings will run much smoother especially with a large wedding party. Each artist can concentrate on their specialised field and do the best work possible without juggling the hair and makeup.


I have a team of amazing hairdressers that I work with both on weddings and photoshoots. We can organise the trial together or separately whichever works for you.


Alternately if you have a hair stylist you regularly use I would be more than happy to work with them also.

Please see some of the weddings and editorial shoots the team have worked on the hair and editorial pages.
