Bridal services

I recognise that each bride’s requirements are unique and, therefore, I can offer you the perfect, bespoke wedding hair and makeup package to make your special day extra special. This includes a hair and makeup service for bridesmaids and other members of the wedding party too.


I fully appreciate that every bride wants to look flawless on her wedding day, so together we will create the perfect look for you, making sure that your makeup compliments your dress, colour scheme, theme, hair and accessories.


My bridal service is tailor-made for each individual. Some people prefer just makeup and others like to have both hair and makeup. In every case, I like to talk through your requirements with you in detail over the phone. After this, an appointment is arranged for a trial.

I am extremely flexible with trial appointments, realising that it is not always possible to get time off work.


Trials usually take place in your own home, but I’m perfectly happy to come along to another location, if this is where you’ll be getting ready on the day. A trial will usually last about one and a half hours for either hair or makeup, or about three hours for both.

My wedding and bridal hair and makeup services are often in Hertfordshire, Essex and Cambridgeshire, so book a chat to discuss your requirements for your big day:

TV, film, commercials, fashion

I have worked on a number of TV, film, commercial and corporate productions as well as working with photographers on test shoots and magazine editorials. My experience ranges from hair and makeup for period dramas to creating special effects and wounds. I work closely with many advertising and production companies who use me for online, TV and print commercials. I am always looking for new and exciting projects to work on so, if you're looking for a hair / makeup artist for an upcoming production or shoot, please get in touch!


I'm part of a team of special effects (SFX) makeup, moulage and prosthetic artists who use cutting edge technology to enhance and extend the appearance and function of limb-loss scenarios. I work with trained professional amputee actors for the film and screen industries and for emergency and military services training simulations, both home and abroad.
