Next year I am set to attend one of the most biggest wedding fairs of my career. BASH (in association with My Wedding Fair Hampshire). Sunday 5th March 2017 at the Guildhall Winchester. This wedding fair is like no other fair – gone are the stuffy perfectly laid out tables, where suppliers can hide! BASH is a new generation of wedding fair, where couples are given permission to interact with suppliers. Really chat about what they can provide for their special day all in a party atmosphere with live music, drinks and snacks a plenty! I am so excited to be involved…
The wedding show *correction* BASH. for couples and the curious who want more than the traditional wedding fair.
Forget endless rows of uninspiring white table cloths and join the party atmosphere as we bring you music, beauty tutorials, tasty treats, and ridiculously rad supplier collaborations. Showcasing the hottest styling trends for 2017 and beyond.
The time has come to stop being told how rad wedding folk are and come and experience their talents for yourself…

Tomorrow I will be at The Master Builder’s at Buckler’s Hard wedding showcase from 12 till 5pm. This very chic wedding venue will be packed with elite local wedding suppliers, all there to talk you through any questions you may have about your big day…and most importantly we’ll all have our diaries for bookings! The hotel will also be providing personal tours of the entire venue, so you really get a good idea of what it would be like to have your wedding at this stunning hotel.
Come and have a chat with me about your bridal makeup! x
The sun was shining for Penton’s open day yesterday, and what a brilliant day was had by all wedding suppliers exhibiting at the beautiful family stately home in Hampshire. I always love going to Penton as I feel like I’m stepping into a Pride and Prejudice scene! I was lucky enough to be asked by friend and owner Danielle to be a part of this special open day for the venue, and it was not long until I was talking to some really beautiful people about their forthcoming wedding day. Two bookings later and loads of enquiries I am more than happy at the success of the day. Open Days are always exhausting work, but so worth it hearing everyones amazing wedding plans! x
Another date for your diary!
If you’re still looking for wedding venues in Hampshire, then none are more breathtaking then the grounds and manor house of Penton Park in Penton Mewsey. And on Sunday 18th September Penton is holding an open day for couples to come and view this breathtaking private manor house. From 11-2pm there will be plenty of hand picked elite wedding suppliers available to answer your questions.
I will be there ready with my diary for next year! x
I occasionally get asked by clients which wedding fayres I will be attending that year, so they could catch me for a quick chat about their wedding makeup. The fact of the matter is that I now don’t attend as many as I used to – perhaps 2 or 3? This is mainly because I am now in the envious position of not needing to chase business, and most of my weekends are now booked with either a wedding or makeup trial – meaning I cannot attend these events. When I was starting out I would attend anything and everything, just to get my name out there and build my confidence with talking to potential bridal clients. I think this was the best thing I could have done for myself and my business, as I also met some great friends through other wedding suppliers who I now count on for styled shoots with magazines.
I often encourage brides to call, or email me if they need to talk about anything – even if it’s not makeup related! x
I became aware of this beautiful new website through Tasha Newland of Ikonworks, when she was working on press releases for the front cover of Wedding Ideas Magazine (August Issue 163) I loved the concept of the site, and the way that editor Kimberley had taken her time to get the look and feel just right. The site overs an online wedding fair, with real locally sourced suppliers, available 24/7 and without actually having to leave the comfort of your own home. A real bonus for most couples who don’t want to spend their precious weekends trawling wedding supplier stands, and feeling awkward when asking questions. Or worse, pressured into booking anything there and then (can’t stand hard sales people!) So this site is really a breath of fresh air. I’m loving it and I hope you find it useful too x
