Congratulations! Your wedding date is set and the planning fun has begun. Choosing the right hair and makeup for your special day is such an important part of the process and I’m so glad you’ve found me because I’m here to help!

Whether you are looking for a natural, relaxed look or something more glamorous and styled, there’s lots to consider!

Is your wedding indoors or outdoors?

What season are you getting married in?

What kind of veil are you wearing?

How big is your bridal party?

What time is your ceremony?

What colours are your bridesmaid’s dresses and flowers?

But don’t worry! Chatting through all of the aspects of your day is all part of the process and will help us decide what will work well for you and your bridal party or special guests.

I’ve been a hair and makeup artist in the Salamander Bay area for a very long time now and have worked with countless brides and families. When you book with Make Me Up, you get … me! You won’t be met with a hair and makeup artist on the day that you don’t know. I offer a boutique, personalised service and as a result, you will have my full and undivided attention on your special day! No rush. No stress. No time limits. I won’t be taking any other bookings on your day. You let me know what you need and I will do my best to make your day truly wonderful.

Not sure what look you’re going for? Take a look through my wedding hair and makeup gallery for some inspiration or follow me on Facebook or Instagram to see the latest styles I have been working on with my recent clients. I also have a number of books and images you can look through when you visit my Salamander Bay salon.

If you have a certain style in mind … yes! You can absolutely bring along a photo and I will do my best to make it work for you. I do recommend a trial as a great idea if you’re trying something new with your hair and makeup as not all styles or colours suit everyone. At your trial we can consider a few options to see what works best for you.

It’s totally fine to bring along or send me a Pinterest board and I can take a look and make some recommendations for you.

Many brides choose to have their hair and makeup done in my Salamander Bay salon but yes, I can travel to your home or event accommodation within the local Nelson Bay and Port Stephens area. Travel fees may apply for longer distances so don’t hesitate to ask!
