Wow! What a fab year I have had…from bridal clients to international models, local village weddings to large stately homes – I have had what is quite possibly the most productive, amazing year yet! And the business just keeps growing. I am now in the enviable position where I don’t need to advertise to gain clients, and I’m more able to go and do styled shoots for high profile photographers. I have also been extremely lucky in the fact that I have met and worked with some real senior names in the wedding industry including; Tasha Newland of Ikonworks, Az Rehman of Lemontree Photography, Unique Cakes by Yevnig, Halfpenny London and Jennifer Poynter Flowers to name just a few. I have also made some lifetime friends through my bridal clients, and even now still get contacted by brides I did the makeup for a year or two years ago still saying they can’t believe how gorgeous their makeup was, and asking what products I used to recreate it – which is extremely flattering.
I have also had the most wedding magazine, and wedding blog coverage I have ever received from previous years. Which all accumulated in achieving a front cover for Wedding Ideas magazine in August, along with a three page feature in Your Hampshire and Dorset wedding magazine (also in August) for an art deco styled shoot I had organised and designed the makeup for. This has also been the year where I have organised around 5 styled shoots for various publications – learning not just how to managed people, but to also think outside the box in terms of makeup design to keep my skills fresh and exciting for future bridal clients.
With 2017 almost already fully booked I simply cannot wait to begin on another equally (if not better) year of glamorous shoots, beautiful bridal clients and magazine coverage x
