Wedding fair season usually starts in the Autumn, but I am pleased to say I have been invited to exhibit at a brand new fair this coming Sunday 19th July , located by the River Thames in Ditton. Quite a lot of my favourite wedding people I like to work with will be there and if the weather holds out it will be a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

I can’t believe it’s nearly the end of January and I’m only just getting round to writing my welcome to 2015 post!
2014 was a busy year meeting lots of lovely brides , seeing the gorgeous space for the relocation of Miss Bush bridal boutique come to life and being part of the grand opening, going the launch of The Freelance Hairdressers Association, a summer visit to Lake Garda, a new website and new branding from the brilliant Leah from Golden Apple, an inspirational workshop with the very talented Lorna Evans. But the biggest thing that happened was I won The Wedding Industry Award for Best Hair Stylist – London & South East!
Winning the London and South East region is a huge accomplishment for me, I was up against some extremely talented hairstylists, all equally deserving of the award, in the largest region. It means so much to me that brides took time out of their busy lives to write about their experience and vote for me.
Some of my regular hairdressing clients have asked what did I win? Well, the physical prize was a cute paperweight embossed with the words
‘BEST HAIR STYLIST London & South East Regional Winner’
BUT the real prize was a PDF file crammed full of lovely words from my even lovelier brides, which brought tears to my eyes. I’m lucky that I love what I do for a living and its an amazing feeling that ‘just doing my job’ means so much to all my brides.
Here are their comments….. Continue reading

I am pleased as punch to be a regional finalist in the London and South East Hair Stylist category of The 2015 Wedding Industry Awards. I’d like to thank all my brides for taking the time to vote for me. I probably drove you all mad with my texts and emails reminding you to vote, but I really do appreciate it. I look forward to reading your kind words once the competition is over.
There is a regional awards ceremony at the end of November where the regional winners will be announced, so I’ll be needing everyone to keep everything crossed .

Welcome to my shiny new website and blog. My first post is basically a thank you to all and sundry!
First and foremost I’d like to thank the very talented Leah from Golden Apple for her patience and understanding when I completely changed my mind about how I wanted my new branding to look and for not unfollowing me on pinterest when I kept pinning fonts, colour palettes and a million other ideas for inspiration.

I’d also like to thank the photographers who have kindly allowed me to use their images of my work so Leah could create the most beautiful galleries of real brides and inspirational photoshoots.
Thanks to the amazing makeup artists who I regularly work with for being such great colleagues and friends.
Also to the staff at certain bridal boutiques who are champions of my work, who have become friends and are my halfway houses between clients!

And a mention for my other wedding world friends for their kindness, daily humour, chit chat and unwavering support.
Last but not least I’d like to thank all my brides and regular hairdressing clients for being such lovely people to work for.
