My service is a little bit special . . .
I am exclusively yours on the day. I only book one wedding per day so there’s no rushing off to another bridal party. I believe that half the fun is getting ready so I bring my luxe services to you. You can relax, without rushing around, and enjoy being pampered in the comfort of your getting ready location.
It’s important to me to create a look that is true to your style. Working equally with care and attention, I’m focused on ensuring everyone walks away feeling confident, beautiful and ready to take on anything! Your wedding day time with me varies depending on how large your bridal party is. I only leave once you are completely ready.
I’m passionate about creating gorgeous hairstyles that leave you feeling oh so special. Your bridal hairstyle should be absolutely beautiful and last the distance. Whether you’re after an effortless boho chic upstyle, bouncy waves or a classic bridal look, I can create something perfect for your wedding day.
I am known for creating beautiful, luminous makeup looks that enhance your best features and allow your own natural beauty to shine through. Communication is key and I work collaboratively with you to create a look that is uniquely you.

How many people can you do hair and makeup for on my wedding day?
The number of services I’m able to do will depend on the styles you choose, the time you need to be ready by and how early you are prepared to start. For example, if your ceremony that starts at 3pm, allowing approximately 1 hour per service to do hair and makeup for 3 people (6 services), I would need to arrive around 7am. This allows for set up time and any touch ups at the end.
How much time to I need to allow on the day?
A good guide is 1 hour per person. While it generally doesn’t take that long for each service, this includes the hair or makeup service (so it would be 2 hrs per person for hair AND makeup) allowing for toilet breaks and hygiene in between each person. It allows time for you to chat to your florist when they deliver your flowers and be able to comfortably chat to those who may drop in and visit without feeling rushed. Times may vary according to hair and makeup styles required. I allow extra time to apply lip colour and do any touch ups at the end – that way everyone will be able to eat and drink during the day. Hair and makeup should be finished around 1 hour before you need to walk out the door for the ceremony. This allows time for you to have that glass of bubbly, some prep shots, get into your dress and calm the nerves before stepping out the door! This will also keep your photographer very happy that you will not be running late and that they can deliver the best photos to you as well.
The goal is to have beautiful hair and makeup for your special day. For that to happen, I believe it’s important to allow enough time for quality work so your getting ready experience is enjoyable and stress free. I will only leave you once you are completely ready, looking and feeling beautiful.
I love your style but my bridal party is too big. What are my options?
For large bridal teams, I recommend you have another stylist so one can do hair, the other makeup.
What brands do you use in your kit?
My makeup kit is filled with professional and luxurious products. Some of my favourite makeup brands are M.A.C Cosmetics, Melli Cosmetics, Danessa Myricks, Atelier Paris, Anastasia Beverly Hills, RCMA, Estée Lauder, Kryolan, Embryolisse and Skindinavia. For those who love faux lashes, I have a wide variety of strip and individual lashes by Helen Dowsley and ModelRock. For hairstyling, I use and recommend De Lorenzo Haircare styling products. You’ll find Dyson Professional, Evy Professional, GHD, MUK, and Babyliss hot tools in my kit.
Are false lashes included?
False lashes are included for anyone who would like them. I have a wide variety of premium quality strip and individual lashes by Helen Dowsley Lashes and ModelRock.
Will my makeup and hairstyle last all day?
Ensuring long lasting hair and makeup is my priority. I use professional products and techniques so that your makeup and hair will last all day and night. Factors such as your skin and hair type, the weather affect how well it lasts as does how well you look after your makeup and hairstyle. If I am creating an upstyle for you, then absolutely your hair will stay. Any soft tendrils around your face will soften naturally during the day. With a downstyle, unfortunately there’s no way to guarantee the longevity of your style.
What is your booking policy relating to COVID-19?
It is fair to say though that we are all very aware of the uncertainly of booking anything during the Covid-19 Pandemic. I am sympathetic to the challenges surrounding planning a wedding during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Full details about my COVID-19 policy for bookings are included in the Service Agreement.
What are your terms and conditions?
Every business needs to have some terms and conditions to protect you as the customer and the business owner. I operate fairly and in line with consumer law and fair trading. These are detailed in the Service Agreement.
How do I make a booking?
I only book one wedding per day so the date you book is exclusively yours. Bookings are accepted on a first in basis. If I have confirmed my availability, fill in your details on the Service Agreement, read through the terms and conditions and if you agree, sign and return to me. Details on how to pay the booking fee are included in the Service Agreement.
Do I need to have a trial?
Weddings are often one of the few times that someone will have their makeup done professionally or have a bridal hairstyle so it’s the best way to trial the things you think you might like and help you decide on a look for your big day. It means that I can offer you as much advice about what will and won’t work for you. Then on the day you don’t have to think too much about it, you can just relax and enjoy the process. A trial usually puts people at ease so I highly recommend it. A trial is also useful so we can get to know each other a little bit before the day and is a great excuse to get pampered!
You don’t have to have a trial. Some things are best not left to chance, but in the end, if you don’t want to book a trial, have limited time available or perhaps the budget doesn’t allow for it, don’t worry. I’m happy to have a 15 minute Zoom chat with you to discuss your ideas and needs for the day. Just bear in mind that there’s no time to trial a look on the day of the wedding.
When should I have a trial?
I recommend having a trial about 3-6 months before the wedding day. It’s best if you have chosen your dress and know the style and colours needed to coordinate and complement with the look you are after. For a hair trial, if you will be having a veil or hair accessories, it’s helpful to be able to bring those with you.
When are you available for a trial?
Trials are held Monday – Friday between the hours of 9 – 5pm.
How much is a trial?
Makeup or Hair Trial $120 | Hair and Makeup Trial: $220
I want you to feel relaxed and comfortable with being open about what you like and don’t like. You can let me know if there’s anything you don’t like or are unsure about as we go so I can make any adjustments as needed. For absolute peace of mind, if you give direction and are still unsatisfied with the outcome by the end of your trial, I will provide a second trial free of charge. You would need to tell me that you are unhappy at the trial, remove the makeup and book a time for a second trial before you leave the studio. No hard feelings!
