“I’ve always loved playing dress up, as a young girl I was fascinated with make-up and hairstyles and as I’ve grown, this fascination has turned into total passion. I love what I do and I love being part of sharing the excitement and joy of women on the most important day of their life. I feel honoured to create the look that is going to capture the bride and groom’s first special moment the first time they see each other on their wedding day!”
