Growing up in the eastern beaches of Sydney, Australia I have always been inspired by natural beauty - sun kissed skin, freckles brought out by the sunshine, golden highlights in the hair and natural curls enhanced by the salt water. Over the past 12 years in the industry, I have brought these inspirations into my unique style that seeks to celebrate the natural features of my brides in a way that is effortless, modern and chic.
I love working with my brides in the lead up to their wedding - exploring everything from colour and tone, to cuts or extensions, so that I can help my bride achieve their desired style. My favourite part of the process is seeing my brides’ face once we have finished the style and we look at each other and know that we have nailed it! It brings me so much joy to help my brides feel confident and beautiful on the most memorable day of their lives.
I commit myself to one wedding a day, so that I can ensure that I can deliver the quality that my brides deserve. I am so much more than a hair and makeup stylist on the day, I love being involved in weddings and helping in any way that I can.
My experience in the industry has taken me from weddings by the Harbour in Sydney, to the leafy valleys of the Blue Mountains, as well as the NSW South Coast and Southern Highlands and now the beautiful northland of New Zealand, my current home.
After following love myself to NZ, I now operate mainly from a studio in Whangarei Northland NZ, but am open to travel and go that extra mile (literally) to be there on your wedding day!
