Whether you are heading for the golden sands of Marbella, a romantic Italian castle or hightailing it to the Scottish highlands I am available to book for your destination wedding.

Navigating organising your wedding in a different country as well as finding the perfect bridal hair and Makeup Artist is no easy feat. I have worked on over 200 weddings and I work closely with brides and destination wedding planners to take all the stress out of your wedding morning. It’s a rite of passage for all brides to be to envisage how they will look on their wedding morning; I specialise in creating modern effortless bridal hair and make up looks that will stand the test of time.

My 2 biggest passions are makeup and travel. The first time I went on the aeroplane by myself I was eight years old and I was visiting my grandparents in Spain! I speak Spanish having lived in Mexico in Spain and I also taught TEFL as in Italy and Spain before I became a hair and makeup artist.

Can I have a bridal hair and make up trial with you before my destination wedding?

Yes absolutely, I am based in the Cotswolds, UK and you can have a trial with me in my home studio. Alternatively a trial can take place at your wedding destination a couple of days prior to your wedding.

What brands do you use?

I’m an exclusively cruelty free Makeup Artist so I only use products that haven’t been tested on animals (neither have their ingredients). I use a mixture of Charlotte Tilbury, Laura Mercier, Hourglass, NYX, Barry M and Dita Von T to name a few. I love using hair products by Moroccan Oil and Color Wow.

Will my bridal hair and make up with stand the heat?

Yes - that’s what you’re booking me for, expert application plus beautiful products will ensure that your bridal hair and make up look lasts all day. Your bridal (hair and) makeup trial is a great opportunity for you to see the longevity of the products and to check that they’re working correctly with your skin. All my products are product tested for longevity; they are water resistant, sweat resistant and transfer resistant so I have complete confidence that the products will last all day and night!

Are you able to do hair and make up for members of my bridal party for my destination wedding?

Yes happily, depending on the time of your ceremony and the size of your bridal party! If needed I can organise an assistant - I work with amazing artists on a regular basis so this is something I can arrange.

Why should I book you for my destination wedding?

Booking me for your destination wedding will ensure that your wedding morning runs smoothly and that you get to relax, knowing that you will be ready in time for your ceremony that you will photograph beautifully and that your hair and makeup will last all day and mostly importantly you will feel incredible.

How do I know you’re the right destination bridal hair and make up artist for me?

I recommend taking a look through my gallery at my images to get an idea of my style. You can also follow me on Instagram, as well as read my reviews on Facebook and Google. If you would like to talk on the phone prior to booking me, please send me an email via the Contact Me page and we can arrange a convenient time to talk. I think that the more communication we have ahead of your wedding day - the better the results are on the day.

What happens at my bridal hair and make up trial?

Trials usually take place at my house in Cheltenham, for a make up only trial I recommend allowing two hours, for a hair and make up trial I recommend allowing three hours. Prior to your bridal hair and make up trial we have a zoom consultation - this allows me to ask if you have any skin sensitivities, for us to talk through details of your wedding day (for example your dress your hair flowers bridesmaid dresses) and, most importantly, for me to ask you about the level of make up you are comfortable wearing on a daily basis.

Why should I choose a destination Makeup Artist and not somebody in the country where I’m getting married?

If you have found an artist that you love and you’re happy with their portfolio that’s wonderful and you should absolutely consider booking them - I would make sure to read through Google reviews and Facebook reviews to read the feedback from other brides. If you’re struggling to find an artist whose work really speaks to you then it's worth considering a destination bridal hair and makeup artist.  Your bridal hair and make up look is such an important part of the day and will impact how you feel on your wedding day and how you reflect on the photographs that you’re going to have forever - it’s important you’re comfortable and confident with the person that will be getting you ready on your wedding morning and creating your bridal hair and make up look.

What happens on my wedding morning?

Ahead of your wedding morning you will have received your hair and makeup schedule from me. I usually have you ready 1 hour prior to your ceremony time. I recreate your bridal (hair and) make up look from images that I took at your trial, my own detailed notes and any feedback you may have given me to ensure that you feel and look as beautiful as possible on your wedding day. I stay until you leave for your ceremony for any last minute touch ups.

How Do I Book You?

Head over to the Contact Me page and give me as much information as possible about your destination wedding. I will respond to your enquiry within 2 working days.
