I had the real pleasure of meeting beautiful Anna recently at her hair and makeup trial, which was only a few days before her actual wedding day. Anna brought her parents along with her to the trial as they had travelled over from Russia for the wedding. Her parents were so lovely, even though they could not speak English, I could tell they were lovely friendly people. They both went for a walk whilst I styled Annas hair and makeup. As the trial was ending, I saw Annas parents in my garden, with my husband. Anna and I were amused at the thought of them trying to communicate as they could not speak English but I was so happy when we opened the door to them and they were like old friends. My husband had started communicating with them by pointing at one of our chickens and said ‘Chicken’ and they responded by saying ‘Kuritsa” and so on….it really was a lovely way for them to communicate. Anna is a scientist and was so so interesting to talk to. On the wedding day, Anna and her bridal party got ready in the Priory at the wonderful Leez Priory. Her dress was absolutely incredible and she looked stunning. Her photographer was Liam Gillan Photography who took these fabulous photos. Congratulations Anna. xxRead More

My photos are not professional so hopefully when she has received her photos back I will put some up here so keep checking back. Congratulations Kate!Read More
I had the pleasure of styling Lorna and her mother and bridesmaids for her wedding day. She was getting married at Braintree Registry Office and then celebrating at The Rayleigh Arms in Terling. I had such a wonderful morning with everyone. There was lots of activity, always something going on, Lornas’ adorable little boy was keeping everyone amused, her mum and bridesmaids were cooking food for everyone, visitors arriving with babies…..a very busy house – my favourite kind of wedding.Read More
I loved meeting Leah at her trial to discuss her hair and makeup requirements. We had a fabulous morning trying lots of different hair and makeup styles. On Leahs’ actual wedding day, I went to The Old House, Rochford, to get her ready. It was my first visit to this venue, a really unique venue. It literally is an Old House styled beautifully.
Leah married at The Old House with her very close family and friends then travelled to a lovely hotel in Southend to celebrate with all her family and friends. I cannot stop staring at Leahs dress, she looked absolutely incredible.Read More
I met with beautiful Denise almost two years ago at her trial, just before the first lockdown. After postponing her wedding several times, it was a pleasure to see her take her vows with her husband Roger, recently. Below, you will see how her wedding morning unfolded. The photographer, Owen Billcliffe (http://www.owenbweddings.com was just amazing. He was great to have around in the morning and he captured Denise and Rogers wedding perfectly. I cannot recommend him enough.
Sometimes, a bride needs a little more help than with just her hair and makeup.Read More
I had the absolute pleasure in carrying out the hair and makeup for beautiful Jessica for her wedding at Du Rougemont Manor. I also had the pleasure in styling the mother of the brides makeup too. I always try to take photos of the bride and her party on her wedding day, which I always forward on to them just after the wedding as the professional photos normally take a good while to be returned. Here are some before and afters…professional photos will follow.Read More
This was my first visit to Hatfield Place and what a huge surprise! I first met with my bride Rosie in the Bridal Suite. and I was completely blown away! The first thing I set my eyes on were the dressing tables with mirrors in front, all in a row. I cannot tell you what a dream that is for a hair and makeup artist as we often have to create a make shift area with extension leads. Real consideration had taken place when this cottage was designed, it was just the perfect setting for the bride and her suppliers. That room was just the beginning….I could not help but just walk around, in absolute awe at the standard of this cottage. I then went upstairs to find the most incredible room boasting a beautiful bedroom and bathroom, sheer luxury. This was before I even went into Hatfield Place….which again did not disappoint. What an absolutely hidden gem! Brides….just go and check it out!
I had such a lovely morning with Rosie and her bridal party, it was real fun, which I think you will see from my photos below. Rosies playlist had everyone singing and dancing while getting ready. It was a morning I wont forget in a hurry. I even asked Rosie to send me her playlist which I now have on regularly in my kitchen. Thank you Rosie for a fabulous morning full of fun. You looked incredible! I worked with makeup by Jaimie Attfield, who is always a joy to be around.Read More
Beautiful Anushka had such a lovely wedding day. I spent the wedding morning at her parents home, where Anushka decided to spend her wedding morning. While I was setting Anushkas hair, there was a team of people from from Mr and Mrs Weddings UK, who set up the marquee for a banquet. It looked absolutely breath taking, one long table for all the guests. I actually wanted to be a guest at that table! Also, the garden looked so beautiful, with unusual vibrant flowers, a freshly cut lawn, a very cared for garden. I enjoyed getting Anushka ready while her parents made sure everyone had something to eat and drink. It really was a lovely morning and Anushka looked incredible in her beautiful wedding dress which was made for her.Read More
I had the pleasure of getting Kelly and her bridal party ready for her wedding day. Kelly left it to the bridesmaids to choose their own hairstyle, which I think is just lovely. The photographer on the day was Neil Bailey. Neil is such a wonderful photographer, very traditional and respectful. He even takes his shoes off every time he sees a carpet! Neil is a recommended supplier of Gosfield Hall and has years of experience. Please find the images of Kelly and her bridal party below. Also, photographer Neil Bailey.Read More
Congratulations to lovely Denise who married this weekend at the Andaz Hotel in London. It was a very early start but it was perfect. I got to spend the morning with Denise and her mum and her aunt who were so much fun and so witty. I honestly don’t think I have laughed so much, they really brightened up my morning. Here they all are….Read More
I had the most wonderful morning with my beautiful bride Sarah this week. Sarahs family are from New Zealand and due to the restrictions, could not make the wedding. It was quite an emotional morning but Sarah had all her family present, on Facetime, all in different locations, from the moment I arrived right up until she got married. I styled Sarahs hair and makeup and helped her into her dress, as Sarah only had 6 people attending her wedding, which included Sarah and her husband. I also took over her mobile phone and live streamed her walking down the aisle so all her family could see her.Read More
I had the pleasure of styling beautiful Jessica and her bridesmaids recently at Hylands House. We had such a lovely morning. Jess did not have access to Hylands House until 9am so we had to start setting her hair at my house, as I live close by to Hylands. I introduced Jess and her bridesmaid to my newly hatched ducklings. I always offer my brides to start getting ready at my premises if their venues do not allow them access early enough. Below you will see some images from Jess’s wedding morning, her beautiful flowers and also lovely Sam Easter, who carried out the makeup on the wedding day. Sam and I always love having a catchup after the bride is all complete.Read More
