Being a bridal makeup artist in Kent is great fun… there are lots of brilliant locations for weddings and I get to work with some great wedding suppliers too. Check out my new supplier page for my recommendation.

Wedding Seasons:

I love the fact that although there is a distinct busy time of year for weddings, that brides-to-be choose different times of year to get wed…

So I get to do summer looks, fresh spring make-up and warmer looks with richer tones for autumn and festive looks for winter. And whilst there are many trends that are ever changing… brides do like to choose looks based on season, as well as theme and of course their personal style.

Many brides still love a classic vibe, which brings out the natural beauty and there are other brides that love the really strong looks influenced by many of the youtube makeup tutorials and modern trends.

Bridal Shoots:

As there are loads of great bridal creatives in Kent, I get to do some lovely inspirational bridal shoots – in fact I did one just a few days ago with those  autumnal shades I just mentioned… here is a sneaky behind the scenes shot…

I love the strong lips contrasted with the shimmery shadow and full lashes… I’ll be sure to show you the photos soon.

Creatives do bridal shoots for a number of reasons, including to build their portfolio, experiment new looks or demonstrate the skills or show trends, and to get the shoots published.

You can see some of my published work on my press page.

Bridal Hair in Kent:

Again bridal hair is a personal choose, some brides like natural looks and others more classic or even structured up-dos. I have been styling hair for commercial shoots and video for a while and for bridal shoots, and in 2019 I’ll be adding bridal hair to my services, offering brides-to-be a choice of the most popular hairstyles.

Here are some inspirational photos that I have applied make-up on and styled the hair too…

Bridal Nails:

Not all brides remember to get the fingernails and toenails done until the last minute – I offer this service too – and the reason it is great to get your nails done is because then you are all set for the honeymoon too… I recommend you choose a shade or colour that no only suits your theme, makeup and personality, but one that you can live with for a couple of weeks…

My favourites include reds, corals and classic French manicure… but to add a little special touch you can include gems or details on the ring finger, which is a little reminder that you are now a ‘Mrs’ and married. These always look amazing on photos… if you don’t believe me check out some of these nails idea for your wedding day in Kent.

If you are a bride-to-be based in Kent, Greater London or surrounding areas please contact me regarding your special day.

#Nail it!

Remember your nails on your wedding day… how is that for a piece of free advice? You want to show off your gorgeous engagement ring and your new wedding band… so ensure you choose gorgeous nails for your hands and toes.

Ten Top Tips for choosing Wedding Nails:

1) Don’t clash with your dress… Tonal colours are best.
2) Go glitz, but don’t compete too much with your jewellery, especially your rings.
3) Match toenails and finernails as you may be wearing peep toe shoes.
4) Choose nails that will look fab with a tan for your honeymoon.
5) Choose nails that will last and not chip – check out my services page for options.
6) If your dress is plain, go for full on nails.
7) Choose nails that suit your theme, so dark colours are fab for an alternative wedding with a gothic vibe.
8) If you are having false nails, go for a practical length – really long nails may take some time to get used to.
9) Have different nails to your bridesmaids – you want to look special and stand out.
10) If you are unsure, choose popular options such as glitter, french manicure, pink, nude and stick-on gems.
