I know from working with hundreds of brides, that no one wants to walk down the aisle feeling like a drag queen, unrecognisable to their friends, family and most importantly, husband/wife to be. 

My focus is to ensure you and your bridal party feel effortlessly beautiful, picture perfect, and most importantly, 100% confident & comfortable during the getting ready part of the day, so you can sit back and enjoy one of the most special days of your life, knowing you will look like the most beautiful version of yourself. 

During our journey from first chat, to arrival on the day I will be here to help guide you with everything Hair & Makeup.  I will also help with bridal party coordination, gathering accessories and hair extensions, working with your planner & photographer to create a seamless timeline and offer tips and guides for your beauty prep before the day. 

I offer trials & previews at my studio space in Ocean Shores, where we can go over all the details together to set the look ahead of time, like a dress rehearsal. 

For your WEDDING day, I provide a mobile bespoke service and will come to you with everything you need, including lighting, chairs, tables, mirror when required. 

With over 500 Weddings and 15 years of working seasonally between wedding hot spot Byron Bay & internationally in the European luxury market based out of Paris,  you will be safe in my caring hands. 

No celebration of love is too big or small, I will work with you for the most intimate elopement to the grandest multi day events and bring in my trusted team when needed. 

 

I am currently based in Byron Bay, Australia. 

I will be available for destination bookings globally upon special request from May 2022.
