What do you do? I do hair and makeup - its my most favorite thing in the world - besides my babes of course!
How long have you been doing it? I have been doing makeup for 10 years!! It started out when i was in theatre as a child then evolved into all sorts of different styles, dabbling in film and television, editorial - but bridal is by far my favourite.
If you weren’t doing this, what would you be doing? If I wasn't doing hair and makeup and coulddo whatever i wanted, I would be a wedding plannre - and that is not even a joke. I am so in love with love.
Best part of your job? By far the best [art of my job is making the beautiful bride feel inedible from the inside out. A wedding morning is always filled with so much joy, and being able to be a part of such special moments in someones life is something that i never take for granted.
What are you binge watching at the moment? My children grow up!! Why does time have to go so quickly. I am guilty of siting and staring at them for hours. In all honestly I don't really watch TV BUT if i did.... I am a chick flick kinda gal so I would have She's All That on repeat.

Favourite beverage? Tequila. without.a.doubt. Is that Shazza calling!?
Favourite part of a wedding? The moment she puts on her dress. There is something so special about watching a women become a bride. You can almost see the flashbaks through time as she looks at herself and thinks wow, well here we are.
What do you love most about weddings in Port Stephens? The diversity!! Port Stephens is unique in all the right ways. You have the country vibes mixed with the smell of the salt, the sandy dunes and forests of green. Its every country you could dream of all within our little slice of haven. It is truly spectacular.
Why do you love working with A Beautiful Occasion? Where do I start? A Beautiful Occasion have been there for me since the beginning of my wedding days, they are like two mama's that have guided me, watched me grow and helped me blossom through their supportive nature and kind hearts. As a makeup artist, I don't often get to see a lot of the other vendors so when i get to see their bubbly faces of a morning I am always busting at the seams.
You’re on a deserted island and you’re allowed to take three things, what are they and why?
Paw Paw ointment - because who would ever go anywhere without it.
My i-pod - I would die without music and I couldn't pretend to be Ariel without singing along to 'únder the sea'
