My passion for helping people look their best through hair and make-up was sparked through my initial experience working on editorials with photographers Niall McInnerney (respected photographer of Naomi Campbell catwalk fall fame) and Rory Dennis (Fashion photographer). They taught me the importance of light and composition and its impact on styling. Since then I’ve been hooked.
I quickly went on to translate those skills into styling for weddings, working for Fulham based Mother of the Bride designer Camilla Ridley, followed by over 5 years in couture bridal boutique, Mirror Mirror, based in Islington, North London. At the boutique my role was helping brides-to-be not only find the perfect dress but providing expertise on how that dress could be complemented with different hair styles, accessories and make-up so they could truly picture how it would all work together on the day.
More recently I have honed my fashion styling at Harrods as Department Manager of Bespoke Alterations, where I was responsible for managing a skilled team that tailored outfits and styles for those making designer purchases, including a few familiar faces. It is important for me to stay up-to-date with what is current in the industry so I can bring ideas to clients looking for the latest contemporary looks.
I have styled brides for over 50 weddings, from intimate receptions in locations such as Zetter Town House, Pembroke Lodge and The Elvetham in Hampshire to grand occasions at establishments such as the Mandarin Oriental, Goodwood House, The Landmark Hotel and Notley Abbey. Each wedding has its own individual style and taste and it is important to me to reflect this personal choice in the hair and make-up style chosen by the bride.
I am happy to take on any size of group for weddings from just the bride to parties up to 15, including the groom as well!
