I have always been a very creative person. Ever since I was little I loved art and other creative subjects and activities. I was also fascinated with faces and became a keen portrait artist. After studying fine art at university I decided I wanted to take my creativity in a new direction and study hair and makeup. I was always the person at university who all my friends came to before a night out or event to do their hair and makeup. I really enjoyed experimenting with new looks and styles and so a career in hair styling and makeup artistry seemed like the perfect path for me! It was also at university where I had my first taste of doing hair and makeup for a photoshoot – one of the fashion students needed a hair and makeup artist for her final collection shoot and I was more than happy to help. I loved every second of it and haven’t wanted to look back since!
I chose to study at the prestigious Delamar Academy based at Ealing Film Studios in West London. Delamar uses leading hair and makeup artists to train its graduates, and is renowned in the industry for producing exceptional talent. At Delamar we studied all kinds of hair and makeup including theatre, SFX and Prosthetics, but what I enjoyed studying the most was fashion and beauty. I loved learning how to create flawless and polished hair and makeup looks whilst still nurturing my artistic flare. I graduated from Delamar Academy with a distinction in Professional Makeup and Design and have since gained experience in all aspects of the hair and makeup industry, including TV, film, fashion and of course, bridal.
It was after graduating from Delamar Academy that I discovered the wonderful world of wedding hair and makeup and my passion for making brides look and feel their best on their big day! To me, wedding makeup is about enhancing a person’s natural beauty and not hiding it under a mask of heavy makeup. Wedding hair and makeup should express a person’s personality and own personal style. It should give a bride confidence so she feels like the very best version of herself. I specialise in creating flawless and radiant looks that do just that. I use professional products and expert application to guarantee a seamless result that is natural-looking and will not only leave my brides looking stunning, but feeling fantastic all day long. I work closely with my clients, listening to them and using my professional understanding and keen eye for detail, to create their perfect bridal look. I pride myself on providing a friendly and professional service, ensuring that the whole experience is as relaxing and enjoyable as possible
As well as my passion for bridal hair and makeup I also work as a freelance hair and makeup artist in the fashion and commercial industries and have many prestigious clients including Karen Millen, Oasis, Warehouse and Anthropologie. Having experience within both the wedding and fashion industries means I can unite these skills to create effortlessly beautiful looks to suit any modern bride. My fashion background also means I am able to produce gorgeous wedding hair and makeup looks that look great both in real life and in your photographs.
