We met as neighbours in 1999 and quickly became the very best of friends. At the time Leanne was working for Chanel and I was doing the occasional special occasion make up for friends. In 2003 I opened up The Butterfly Beauty room offering beauty treatments and Leanne was now working for Lancôme but becoming more involved with hairdressing.
Skipping forward to 2006 and after 6 children between us, Leanne was now working as a Stylist in a busy Bath salon and I had continued to expand my treatments and had now built up a solid client base. I was already offering wedding make up to Brides and the thoughts of my own wedding gave me the idea to offer wedding packages– a one stop home based wedding day service.
We started by exhibiting at Wedding Fayres and quickly had a number of bookings flooding in!! In 2009 we were approached by The Bath Chronicle to offer Wedding Hair and Make Up as part of their “Win a Wedding” competition which we were happy to be a part of. We also offered our services to the winner of Snap Dragon Wedding raffle Hair and Make up!
We have a natural chemistry and work very well together without consciously trying!! The Brides we have worked for say how “calm and comfortable” we made them feel, and how we became a really important part of their day.
The best thing about being a part of someone’s wedding day – is meeting their friends and family and seeing them transform out of their PJ’s!! The worst thing – is leaving before they put on their wedding dress!
