I recently had the honour of doing the makeup and hair styling for the beautiful Nina, who was getting married at Pennard House in Somerset.

I can come to your home or office to get you ready before the event, just get in touch to make your booking. I can cater for any number in your party and can put a team of additional hair stylists and makeup artists together if there are lots of you to get ready, however, if it's just you, then that's fine too.

Working with brides on perhaps the most special day of their lives is such an honour and I have been really lucky to have met some amazing and inspiring women over the years and helped them create the perfect bridal look.

I recently had the pleasure of working with the beautiful Alice who booked me to do her bridal hair and makeup for her country wedding in Wiltshire. I wanted to share these pictures as I often meet brides looking for hair inspiration and I think this is such a pretty and romantic up do, perfect for a summer wedding.

I hadn't met Alic...

Having been a makeup artist and hair stylist for 20 years, I've seen some fashions come and go. One thing I have always felt is that a natural looking makeup for your wedding day is always the best way forward. Its really lovely to have a smokey eye makeup or a bold lip colour but sometimes it can look too much together on the wedding day, especially if you are someone who needs a good coverage foundation as well. Its all about getting the balance right.

There are so many beautiful, light reflecting and glow enhancing makeups on the market now. Its lovely to be able to create a light and natura...

Spring is here and as the wedding season begins I always find this the perfect excuse to update and refresh my bridal makeup kit (ie. go makeup shopping) and my latest purchase is this wonderful palette from the makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury.

Whilst browsing the makeup counters in my local department store in Bristol, I came across this fantastic palette with 3 eyeshadow shades, 2 cheek colours and a bronzer and high lighter. So often I find with makeup palettes, you only like half of the colours and the others aren't suitable so you end up not using the rest. But with this one I am very conf...

I was overjoyed and honoured to be asked to do Saskia's bridal hair and makeup for her spring wedding at Pennard House in Somerset.

I first met Saskia and her Mum earlier in the year for her bridal hair and makeup trial.  Saskia is very beautiful so we designed a light and natural makeup with a classic feel to compliment her personal style. 

I used a Chanel foundation (Perfection Lumiere) with medium coverage and set the makeup with a little Bobbi Brown translucent powder for a matt finish and extra staying power. Clinique eyeshadow and eyeliner gave Saskia's eyes a subtle smokey...

I met Emma a few months before her wedding day when she came to my studio for her bridal hair and makeup trial. We had such a great time, and Emma is a natural beauty so I applied a very light makeup. I used a little Chanel Vitalumiere foundation, with slightly sparkly Bobbi Brown eyeshadow and Clinque Defining Nudes blush on her cheeks.

As a bridal hair stylist and makeup artist, I have been privileged to work at some beautiful wedding venues over the years. I usually work fairly close to my home which just outside Bristol and I feel so lucky to live near the Cotswolds, Wiltshire and Somerset which boasts some of the loveliest places to get married.

Happy new year! I wanted to write about a lovely winter wedding I have done recently at Berwick Lodge, a lovely Victorian mansion hotel near Bristol.

One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is giving makeup lessons. There is nothing I enjoy more than helping someone develop confidence with makeup application. Its amazing to see peoples faces light up when I have passed on some techniques and they have a go themselves and love what they have achieved. 

I often get booked for makeup lessons after a wedding. A bride, bridesmaid or mum has loved their wedding day makeup so much that they want to learn how to re create it for themselves. 

Many women feel overwhelmed by the amount of makeup products on the market, and also being intim...
