Has it really been almost a year since I did a blog post?! I have good intentions of posting regular updates and then time seems to whizz by and before you know it, months have passed. Anyway, we’re well into 2016 already and I’ve been so busy so I thought I would share a few things I have been up to over the past few months.
2015 was my busiest year to date with well over 100 weddings completed, that’s lots of beautiful brides! 2016 is shaping up to be another blockbuster year with 96 confirmed bookings already. I only have two free Saturday dates now, which are 22 October and 10 December. If you’re getting married on those dates, drop me an email. My most popular venues for 2016 seem to be Swancar Farm and Stubton Hall, both amazing venues which I love going to. I also have a few bookings for the West Mill in Derby. It’s a relatively new venue and one I haven’t yet been to, so I’m looking forward to seeing it.
I’ve changed my business slightly in that I’m doing a lot more commercial work now, as well as my regular weddings. January saw me doing hair and makeup for the SS16 Womenswear collection for Paul Smith. I also spent a week on location with a team from Ikea , who flew over from Sweden and I had great fun on location with them doing hair and makeup for some upcoming advertising. I was a little upset when they flew back! In February I took part in an amazing styled shoot and film which I will be able to share with you later this month, it’s stunning!
It’s busy behind the scenes too, I have a new ‘personality’ client (ssshhhh, secret!) and I’ve got two more commercial shoots lined up for early May which I’m looking forward to sharing. I also have a regular beauty column in Rutland Pride magazine which I will be sharing each month. If there is any topic you would like covered, please do let me know.
It’s also only a couple of weeks away from the first anniversary of my studio which has also flown by. I love having my own space and welcoming brides for their trials. I’m now stocking a range of lashes from Prima Lash in the studio, as well as a full range of skincare from Dermalogica.
Anyway, that’s all for now and please do follow my FaceBook page where I always share my most recent work. In the meantime, here are a few of my gorgeous recent brides.
