I trained in 2002 at Newcastle college studying beauty and fashion photographic hair and makeup and I then continued my training in Los Angeles at the prestigious Hollywood makeup school Elegance International in 2008
Throughout my hair and makeup career I have worked in all aspects of the industry, from special effects film shoots to catwalk and high fashion magazine shoots.
I now work predominently in the wedding industry as the joy that I get from being part of one of the most important days in a clients life is priceless and makes my job extremely fulfilling.
A wedding morning can sometimes be stressful, but I love nothing more than being able to alleviate some of that stress, creating a relaxed and ultimately enjoyable experience.
I love to be challenged and take inspiration from current trends to help create a look that the client loves. Whether that be a messy boho style or a sleek chignon, I work with you to decide on a look that is perfect.
I now offer a fully cruelty free luxury kit including brands such as: Hourglass, Charlotte Tilbury, Pixi, Glossier, Rodial, Urban Decay, Sukin and Maria Nila.
Wanted to send you a little thank you note!
You were so fantastic on Friday! Mom was very apprehensive about having her hair and makeup done and not only did you put her at ease by chatting to her but you also made her look so glamorous!
The girls all mentioned how easy it was to get on with you and how unstressful you made our morning. Thank you also for helping the girls with the flowers in their hair on the day. And finally, I absolutely loved my hair and make up. The trial really helped in the lead up, especially trying the different looks. I don't wear much make up at all but I felt really comfortable on the day and it looks great in all the photos!

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your amazing work on Sunday! The girls hair looked stunning and you did mine just as I'd wanted it too!
You have exactly the right personality and temperament for the job you do (as well as a lot of skill and talent!) - you put us all at ease. It just felt like we had another friend in the room!
It's been an absolute pleasure working with you the whole way along!
All the best,
