For the past 5 years, I've been lucky enough to glam hundreds of gorgeous brides. Making someone look & feel their most beautiful, on the biggest day of their life, is a feeling like no other. I've truly found my passion & purpose and I absolutely LOVE it.  

My love for makeup goes back as far as I can remember. Britney Spears' silver sparkly eyeshadow & faux beauty spot in the Lucky music video used to mesmerize me. Thanks for the inspo, Brit! 

I got my start in the makeup industry working on a Clarins counter, I then moved on to Urban Decay, before deciding to take a leap of faith & become a full-time freelance Makeup Artist. At first, I was mostly doing night out glams - working out of my mum's conservatory! Gradually more & more brides started booking me for their wedding days. This was purely through word of mouth and recommendations from my incredible clients. Now, I pretty much do bridal exclusively! Taking on around 70-100 weddings a year at the many beautiful venues Essex & Suffolk have to offer. 

On the wedding day, my aim is to just feel like one of your friends helping you get ready. People always ask me to tell Bridezilla stories & I really don't have any! I think this is because my brides always tend to feel comfortable and relaxed around me. Well, that is my hope anyway.

Style wise - I'd say I lean more towards the natural, soft, makeup, but I also love a full glam moment. I have a real obsession with making the skin look completely flawless, but still natural, glowing & radiant. 

So, if you're a bride to be & looking for your Wedding Day MUA, please feel free to send me an enquiry or just drop me a message on Instagram. I'm very chilled out and love a good chat! 

Can't wait to hear from you,
