What makes me different?

Being a fully qualified beauty therapist, as well as a makeup artist + hair stylist, along with my photographer husband, I live and breathe weddings.

There is nothing I can't help with.

With 21 years experience in the beauty industry and having owned an Ella Bache salon for 12 of those years, I love to take a holistic approach when it comes to skin and hair health. Having a keen interest in nutrition, this allows me to give you the best advice when it comes to your skin and hair care in the lead up to the day so you feel your absolute best on the inside, and look your best on the outside. I take a skincare approach to makeup to give you the absolute best makeup experience yo have ever had.

On the day, for me its about making you look incredible from all angles- balance and symmetry play a huge role for me as a perfectionist in my craft so you can be confident you are in the best hands possible.

Allow me to take you on a journey not just on the wedding day, but in the lead up to ensure you are on the right path to great skin and hair for the day. After all, a great canvas to start will ensure you are looking flawless all day....and all night long.

My brides know I have their best interest at heart, and I simply wont allow anything in my control take away from a beautiful stress free day.

For me, its not just about turning up on the wedding day and leaving as soon as the last bridesmaid has her lipstick on.

My service extends well beyond just creating hair and makeup. It's about giving you the correct advice on how to correctly prepare in the lead up for optimum skin and hair health. And on the day, Whether it's helping you get into your dress, perfecting a corset back, or helping your Dad secure his buttonhole....With 20 years of wedding experience, there is nothing I can't assist with and that experience shows.

Over & Above

For the past 8 years, Kat Black has been by my side creating beautiful bridesmaids and mothers. Both Kat and myself are both hair and makeup artists and we have worked closely together over the years to make sure our styles are very similar to make it consistently beautiful across your whole bridal party. During 2022 and beyond, you'll be able to book either one of us, or both as a team.

We offer an incredibly fun and professional hair and makeup experience for your day.

We are both dedicated to making sure your morning runs on time, and everyone is looking and feeling their best.

Your morning will simply be the best it could possibly be.
