It has to be said 2018 has been the best year so far for Maid by Sinead! I’m delighted to say that there have been plenty of happy brides and it has been an honour and a privilege to be part of every individual and unique wedding morning!
One highlight in particular was winning the Wedding Journal Reader Awards 2018 in the Bridal Make-up category. I still pinch myself that I have come this far and can now classify myself as an ‘Award Winning’ Make-up Artist.
I will be honest – there have been times when I have been tested! From my car/kit being taken in the Summer to the endless worry of having enough bookings in such a competitive industry. However to be my own boss, work my days around my children and meet so many different people on a daily basis doing what I love makes it all worthwhile.
As I go into 2019, I am lucky to say that my dates in the diary are limited with a handful of weekend dates left. Bride’s really seem to be getting more and more organised and 2020 is beginning to shape up nicely.
If you are reading this and you are newly engaged, I will be at the Culloden Hotel & Spa Sundays 13th Jan, Slieve Donard Hotel and Spa Feb 10th and the Merchant Hotel (date to be confirmed). Please don’t be afraid to introduce yourself, and if you are needing any help or advice regarding your wedding makeup feel free to say.
Continuing into 2019 I’m excited for more collaborations especially with Paula at Hello Sugar Photography. There may even be a working trip to Spain organised so keep your eyes and ears peeled to all my social media to find out the latest! And if any of you want that timeless, radiant and flawless look on your wedding day please don’t hesitate to get in touch – I would be delighted to hear from you!
Planning your perfect day has never been easier, and Ireland has some of the best designers, creators, and vendors available. As always, keep an eye on the website for more blogs, with some great guest content from some of my favourite people in the industry.
Here’s to 2019!
Love, Sinead x
