I'm delighted to share some exciting news...
I have joined forces with the wonderful Heather Cocker! Together we have carefully selected a team of wedding hair & makeup specialists across the UK who will work through The Collective. Have a look at our brand new website!
Having this team allows us to accommodate for more bookings, have a trusted number of artists for all eventualities and also introduce you to more of the incredible talent out there.
The girls on our team have always been the ones we have worked with on large bookings, those we have recommended when we don't have dates available and some of the best in the business who share our ethics. We will both be working closely with the artists to ensure we all share the same standards and work at the same level.
Our reputation is everything to us and you can trust we will only have THE BEST on The Collective.
