A perfect ‘Sea-nery’ at the Fennes

Posted on September 21st, 2018

Hannah’s Navy themed Wedding was a day I will never forget. Hands down one of the funniest wedding mornings I have had and i’m delighted to be doing it all again next month when her sister in law gets married.

Hannah married at the Fennes in August surrounded by sunshine. I was the Wedding hairstylist for the day and did hair for the bride and entire bridal party.


Hannah wanted a relaxed style for her wedding with a messy undone boho finish to her own hair. For the bridesmaids she went with some gorgeous soft beach waves in a half up half down style.


Hannah has gorgeous red hair and she teamed her messy mermaid style braided hairstyle with some real blue flowers which i decorated throughout her hair. I intertwined some fishtail braids  into the style for added texture. This style really did look perfect from all angles. She told me people just wanted to take pictures of her hair all day (no better compliment)


I was lucky enough to see the ceremony room after the girls were all ready and thought i’d share some of the gorgeous touches from her Navy inspired day. Here they are….












Classical Style at Gosfield Hall

Posted on September 20th, 2018

Hannah’s beautiful wedding at Gosfield Hall was a classical masterpiece to remember.


I provided Bridal hair and makeup for this wedding as well as hair and makeup for her bridal party. She wanted a classical style with a modern twist for her wedding day style. Hannah works in a bridal shop so knows what looks good and knew exactly what she wanted. For her hair I designed this vintage roll look for her day, she teamed it with gorgeous Gemma Veil from Sash and Veil so you could still see her hair and hairpiece.



For her makeup she opted for airbase for longevity and the classic Bumblebee Bridal eye with a bit of sparkle added on top using my fave bare minerals eye glitter in Queen Phillis to make the eye pop. This was teamed with a vintage flick. We used Bitch perfect by Charlotte Tilbury on her lips. I designed this vintage roll hairstyle for Hannah which she wanted messy to make it more modern. She teamed it with a ‘Gemma’ veil from  Sash and Veil


I also did the hair and makeup for her mum and sister

For her mum I did a classic vintage inspired french pleat but that was messier for a more modern take on this classic look. For her makeup I used the light wonder foundation as this looks radiant on mature skin giving her this gorgeously glowy complexion.

For her sister Meagan I also used airbase for that flawless finish and gave her a classic matt vintage eye makeup look using the Urban Decay number 3 pallet in cool greys and pinks. Below is a before and after of Meagan. As always there are no edits, filters or airbrushing to the images.





Romance at the Reid Rooms

Posted on November 10th, 2017

Earlier this month I had the privilege of being part of Joanna’s special day providing Hair and makeup Artistry at the stunning Reid Rooms in Margaret Roding Essex –

This venue is very special to me as I did my 1st wedding makeup there 8 years ago this December.

Joanna chose a classic look for her wedding day with a gorgeously traditional updo which we teamed with a hairpiece designed and hand made by PS With Love more info on how we built the hair piece around her chosen style can be found here: 

Have a look at the gorgeous professional images taken by Sophie here:

Joanna’s Wedding hair trial

Joanna’s hair on her wedding day with bespoke Hairpiece

This summer I teamed up with the super talented PS with Love who builds beautiful jewellery and hair pieces to be able to offer my brides a bespoke hair jewellery option for their wedding day –

Now when brides come for their Wedding Hair and makeup trials I have a selection of beautiful hair jewellery to help them design hair styles with. I found Brides often don’t know where to start with their hair jewellery, do they buy something before their trial for example. But what if it doesn’t work with their finished style? Will it work with a veil?

Having jewellery at the point of trial to use to help them imagine what would suit their style has really helped my brides. It also helps them find something more unique to their wedding colours, dress design and hair style. The Hair pieces are incredibly light and do not alter the design I have created for the bride which some bulky heavy hair combs can do. What I love most is that PS with love will change the hairpiece into a piece of keepsake jewellery after the wedding day. LOVE!

I think you will agree these pieces have complimented these brides hair beautifully.
