Just got engaged? Congratulations, exciting times ahead!!!
As we approach the New Year bridal planning takes priority in many bride-to-be's lives!
If you are newly engaged you'll be all bizz about choosing the right people to help bring your most perfect wedding day into reality. If you've been planning for a little while, the arrival of the new year can spark a little fluster of excitement and even panic as you know you must tick all your to-dos on that list! Either way, it's an exciting time, so enjoy every second!
My words of wisdom are 1) research your bridal suppliers - chose the people who fit your style, ask for recommendations from friends and family; word of mouth can't be beaten. Check out websites and social media sites. Read reviews from real life brides. For your makeup, I believe it's really important to see a makeup artist's work with no post production work or filters on photos! 2) If the suppliers you chose only do one wedding per day - snap them up especially for weekends and bank holidays! 3) Have fun choosing!
I've included a small selection of my recent real life brides and bridesmaids, all photographed by me on the morning (with no post production touch ups!) Hope you like what you see! There's lots more images on my Instagram and Facebook and I'm so proud to say I hold a 5* rating from my clients as well as being awarded Best Bridal Makeup in Northern Ireland and UK Makeup Specialist.
January is my busiest month for receiving bridal enquiries but I aim to respond within 24-48 hours, although more likely 12-24 hours. You can get in touch via the contact form, email or phone; you just need to provide me with your wedding date, location and number of people in your bridal party.
2019 has limited availability during peak bridal season, weekends are almost fully booked March - August but yours might be the one that's free so get in touch :) Also securing bookings for 2020 weddings. If I'm not free I will happily recommend other makeup artists I trust and love.
Here's my top nine from Instagram for 2018...
