Hi, I’m Catherine, lead makeup artist and company owner. I began my career in film, television and media makeup and I continue to be available for photo-shoots and commercial work. With experience on various film and television sets and over 80 weddings a year, I am fully experienced in keeping what can become a nervous situation, calm.
My philosophy of a calming touch combined with high end products and an eye for detail means my skills are a vital part of your big day.
You will rarely see me attend wedding fairs as I pride myself in receiving the majority of bookings through reputation and recommendations from my previous clients.
Now your planning and preparation is all done; sit back, relax and let me take care of this bit for you.
As a hair and makeup artist I have over 7 years experience within with industry and pride myself on an intricate set of skills I continue to build and develop. Wedding morning timings are an equally important component of the service that I offer, ensuring your whole morning runs like clockwork from start to finish.
I use the most exclusive products available, and only after I have tested them on various models with their in depth feedback, do they make it into my kit. My preferred brands include MAC, Estee Lauder, Nars, Laura Mercier and Dinair airbrush makeup.
I also endeavour to source specific products for individual brides and members of her bridal party, upon request, should you have any specific allergy needs.
If I am unfortunately unavailable for your big day I will only recommend the very best in the industry and those who follow in my company philosophy, so we will be able to help supply an artist for you.
I could not have asked for a better person to have done my hair and make up on my wedding day. From start to finish Catherine was incredible. She listened exactly to what I wanted and was always willing to tweak things as required. On the wedding day she was such a friendly, calming influence. It was really like having a friend there! Catherine stayed right up until the last minute and ensured I was completely happy with everything before she left- time was not an issue. Lots of guests commented on how gorgeous the hair and make up looked and I will even be passing on her details to some of my friends who have upcoming weddings. Thanks again Catherine.
Catherine did my hair and makeup for my wedding on Saturday 11th November and I can't thank her or recommend her enough. I received compliments all day about looking amazing, stunning and fabulous. There have been pictures put on Facebook which have received more of the same compliments. More importantly, I'm not very good at receiving compliments as I have very low self-esteem, I generally take compliments with a pinch of salt, however, due to Catherine's amazing skills I knew I looked gorgeous (brought a tear to Gilberto's eye when I walked up the aisle) and I was able to genuinely believe and enjoy the compliments I received. Couldn't have been happier.
Catherine was very professional and personable. She did an amazing job, listened and changed whenever I wanted something different. She was timely and did not leave until the last minute - just in case anything went wrong. She even convinced my extremely difficult 6 year old niece to sit long enough to have her hair done! Highly recommended!
Catherine was the make up artist for my wedding. She helped me and my 4 bridesmaids feel absolutely beautiful. Laid back, relaxed and very skilled, she made us all look a polished version of ourselves. We don’t wear much make up and Catherine was mindful of this, really emphasising our natural features rather than painting us as someone else. The make up lasted fantastically into the evening. I would whole heartedly recommend her: a lovely person and excellent make up artist.
I had Catherine come out to a hotel I was staying in to do my makeup. I had traveled 3 hours to attend a wedding in Farnbrough and needed a make up and hair artist. I wasn’t disappointed on time very polite and reliable would recommend to anyone that is looking for wedding makeup and hair.
Catherine did the hair and make-up for my wedding in April 2018 and I couldn't be happier with the service that she provides. Catherine is extremely professional, calming and creates a very relaxed atmosphere. She was early on the day and did a fantastic job with everyone's hair and make up - everyone looked stunning but still natural. I couldn't recommend her highly enough. Thank you Catherine!
Catherine was amazing from the design appointment to my big day! She got me and my style (or lack of) straight away and knew exactly what I wanted from our conversations. She went above and beyond by colour matching my bridesmaids from pictures and sending me our lipsticks before the big day for their gift bags! My bridesmaids loved her too!!! I’d highly recommended!!!!!!!
Absolutely brilliant - Catherine perfectly understood what I was looking for at my luxury bridal photo-shoot. She was super-efficient, creative and easy to work with. She made the models feel very relaxed and was an essential part of a complex team on a very busy day. The hair and make-up withstood a long day of outfit-changes and hair accessory/veil switches, and still looked great right to the end. Would totally recommend.
