You’ve said “YES”, you’re literally floating on cloud 9. Venue and date are set, planning has begun. 

If hair is of great importance to you, DON’T put booking your favourite wedding hairstylist off. You may have been following their work on social media and would love to book them. If like me, their bridal diary could be booked up months to a year in advance. 
You don’t want to be disappointed in not booking part of your dream team.

Think about style, and how you envision yourself on your big day. 

Book hairstylists who will travel to your home/hotel on your wedding morning. 
Let us come to you.

Contact hairstylists directly via phone, email, website. Once contacted by brides, I check availabilty of their date, then forward my wedding letters and pricing to them and we take it from there.

Meet your potential bridal hairstlyist for coffee (green tea for me) and seek their guidance in regards to hair accessories and viels. You can get a real feel for someone once you’ve actually met them. 

I love to meet all my brides for chats to find out their style and vision for their big day.
Make moodboards – pinterest, images from websites or magazines. It’s better to have actual images you love rather than trying to verbally explain. It gives us a better understanding of what your bridal vision is. We don’t mind looking through the images, it’s our job and we love it!

The internet is a wonderful crutch for wedding planning. Do your research.

·      Search blogs – Inspire , One Fab Day, Both do Real Life Weddings
·      Websites – Facebook - Instagram
·      Stalk people (it’s okay to stalk and have a good nosey)
·      Set yourself a budget
·      Decide on what kind of bride you want to be

Last but not least, remember your future hubby or wife has asked YOU to marry them, not a version of what you think a “bride” should look like. 

Don’t be afraid to be yourself.  

A bride is YOU!

Jewellery with Meaning


When it comes to my job, I get to meet lots of fabulous people. Therefore, I'm given the opportunity to work for companies and create hair for their campaigns. One of them recently was for jewellery company Argento. They have an exclusive range called Karma Jewellery. 

I fell in love with Karma Jewellery and even more so when I discovered that every piece of jewellery is designed and handcrafted here in Belfast. With each piece sold they aim to promote consciousness and unity by working with, and supporting local charities. For every bangle you purchase, Karma give 10% back to their chosen hand selected charities. 

Incorporated into every piece is the symbolism of positive energy, the collection allows you to express individual style through a range of colours, tokens and symbols.


Why choose to wear any other bangle when you know you could be looking good, feeling good and doing good with your very own piece of Karma.   



Remember their hashtag #jewellerywithmeaning
