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
