Vanessa has spent 8 years nurturing her love for skin, ingredients and products, beautiful red- carpet- style artistry and providing the most amazing service for her clients to impact their day in the most wonderful way.

Your Trial

Your wedding trial is firstly an opportunity for you to get to know Vanessa and to thoroughly discuss potential ideas you have for your desired look.

She will then hand over the mirror and continue to create your makeup whilst listening to your thoughts throughout.
Your trial will last between 2-4 hours which allows plenty of time to discuss makeup and arrival times on your big day, carry out your makeup and record all details of specific techniques, brands and tones used during your trial, along with images, so you can definitely trust Vanessa to fulfil your vision.
The trial will normally take place 2 months before your wedding.

Bridal Parties

The services Vanessa offers are completely custom to each client and believes there is nothing more important that taking her time to get to know your entourage. From bridesmaid makeup, mother of the bride, to flower girls and extra wedding guests, Vanessa always ensures everyone is photo-ready.
