I met Lynne when I was recommended to her by her sister-in-law Gemma, who’s wedding I had done about a year before. Its always really lovely to get recommendations and follow up on brides. Gemma was one of Lynne’s bridesmaids so we had a good old natter and catch up as I did her makeup. I had such a lovely morning making up Lynne, her maids and her Mum ! It’s such a delight when everyone feels so comfortable with you, and you them, that you are fully accepted into the morning as just one of the family. Feel so privileged to have the job I do.
I just received these lovely photos from a wedding I did at Norton House Hotel in Edinburgh. It was a pretty hectic wedding morning. The girls were so lovely and I had great fun. I think you’ll agree they all look stunning. The one one of the bridesmaids seeing Natalie for the first time has to be one of my favorite photos of all time.

This is one of my favorite reactions caught on camera from the Mum of the bride from this wedding. I have to say that for me, apart from the bride, the Mums are my favorite to do. The most common thing I hear from the Mother of the Bride or Groom on the wedding day is ‘Oh you don’t need to worry about me, I just need a little’. It’s like they don’t want to be a burden on me or anyone else around! They are also a bit anxious about makeup as most of them will either not be makeup wearers or have a very set look. So when I have finished talking to them about how they would love to loo (usually younger) and then finished the makeup and I get a reaction like this I am over-joyed.
When Haley arrived for her trial she was in jeans and t shirt and told me she never wore makeup and was even a bit scared of it. You would never know that from this photo, she is the perfect natural bride.
