2016 wrap up…

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.

I have also been accepted onto the books of some very high profile wedding venues this year including; Penton Park, Stanwell House and Somerley Estate House.

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
