I booked Katy for my wedding hair and makeup... am so pleased I did. Katy is an absolute professional. She listened to my preferences and ideas to create a look that was exactly what I wanted.

She was able to create a glam but natural look with makeup that felt light and lasted all day....

A wedding morning can sometimes be stressful, but I love nothing more than being able to alleviate some of that stress, creating a relaxed and ultimately enjoyable experience.
I love to be challenged and take inspiration from current trends to help create a look that the client loves. Whether that be a messy boho style or a sleek chignon, I work with you to decide on a look that is perfect.'

...Other than her obvious amazing talent, Laura is an absolute JOY to be around. The trial day with me and my bridesmaids was so much fun, that it felt like we were hanging out with a new friend who just happened to make us look beautiful. It was so nice to have Laura around on the morning of the wedding. I was feeling a little overwhelmed, and she gave me a pep talk, put me at ease, and helped me to just enjoy the moment...
