The time has come to cast your vote for who you consider to be Northern Ireland's Bridal Makeup Artist of the Year! Getting Married in Northern Ireland magazine introduced this exciting new category last year and I was shocked and so excited to have been placed second! Thank you SO SO much for voting!
Could I make it to first place this year (or is that being greedy?!)?
If you are a s.a.k bride and were happy with the service I provided on the lead up and morning of your wedding I would really really appreciate your vote! Likewise if you are a future bride and want to cast your vote that would be amazing. I can't win this one without your support!
I have been really lucky in my makeup career to date having been placed second and third in some pretty amazing and high profile competitions! And in October 2012 I won my current title of IRISH MAKEUP ARTIST OF THE YEAR! I love competiting in live competitions as it is solely about being judged on my ability by industry leaders and I don't need to pester you lol. But if you have a wee second to spare and like what I do your vote could help me get to the top this year!

Thank you all the muches!!!

2011 was an amazing year! If you follow my work on Facebook you will have read some of my highlights including coming 3rd in cult makeup brand Illamasqua's Distinction in Makeup Artistry Awards having competed against makeup artists from across the world, working backstage at the MTV EMAs and coming second in the Oonagh Boman Makeup Excellence Awards! Not forgetting of course the most precious highlight of all...the arrival of my son Riley! It was a crazy busy year, we now have a team of four children's entertainers and bookings more than doubled the previous year. So thank you massively for all your support!
Starting 2012 I have five times more bridal bookings in my diary than 2011! So I'm writing this little blog post to highlight my availability for weddings is limited. I operate a one wedding per day policy and book my time exclusively for each bride so you have the undivided time and attention you deserve on your special day.
A new year's resolution for 2012 is to get more photos of my real life brides but here are a few samples...

I am really looking forward to meeting and working with all my 2012 brides! Any previous brides (or indeed wedding photographers of my previous brides!) who would be so kind as to share a wedding picture please email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you wish to check availability for your wedding date please do not hesitate to get in touch! 2013 and 2014 diaries are also available for booking.
Mentioning New Year's Resolutions...I also aim to update my website and blog more often. There are lots of exciting images being added to my website this very minute but Facebook is always a good way to keep up to date with our work.
