The very first wedding I did was for seven people, I like to through myself in at the deep end. It was so much fun and I knew instantly that this was it. I had found what I was supposed to do! I spent three years at college doing women’s hairdressing and met lots of inspiring people. In this time, I also had two babies, so had to do my, already intensive course, intensively.

I have been fortunate enough to learn make up skills from Sally Orchard Makeup and Beauty in Falmouth. I first met Sally when I modelled for the Wed magazine, Sally did my make-up for the shoot. This is where I realised my passion was to be behind the scenes working rather than in front of the camera.  (www.orchardmakeup.com)

Although weddings are my expertise, I have also worked for Fiona Richardson Big Dance Company. I taught a room of parents how to do hair and make up for their children’s dance competitions. This involved me standing in front of 30 parents and 10 children and demonstrating on a model. This was way out of my comfort zone, but I really enjoyed it and I am pleased I’ve done it. Success is on the other side of your comfort zone. (www.bdc.me.uk)

I love being able to be creative, so I like to arrange photoshoots to show how my work can be dynamic and imaginative. I’m lucky to have worked with inspiring photographers who bring my work alive and convey their own artistic flare also. For me there is nothing better than being in room of passionate and inspiring people.
