So I packed up my hair and makeup kit (all 60+ kilos of it!) jumped on a 33hour flight and headed to Ibiza, Spain…
Landed here at the very beginning of the Summer season, so I could settle in and get a few things organised before the craziness of the island started!
After visiting Ibiza last year for a holiday (one of many trips to this magnetic white Isle) I decided that I would just love to move here for the Summer season and work. With so much beauty, culture and spirit…I couldn’t think of a better place to be pampering Brides in preparation for the biggest day of their lives!
that were big fans of my work and had completely encouraged me to make the move over to Ibiza to collaborate with them on some of their weddings throughout the season. Amazingly helpful, patient and sweet with me (even after my billionth email about NIE or pricing advice etc! Bless them!) I am lucky to be working with the most respected and chic events company on the island 🙂 Truly grateful for their time and interest in me!
Since arriving I have worked in some of the most exclusive and simply divine villas the island has to offer! Retraining my brain to drive on the opposite side of the road, with the gear stick and steering wheel also on the opposite side, finding villas down off beaten tracks that have no addresses (and cant be found on Google Maps! Plus the internet and GPS here is not fabulous!) it has been a testing adventure to say the least:) But now 7 weeks in I am completely confident with the driving situation and just the general flow and vibe here in Ibiza!
I have worked on 13 jobs so far, everything from guests attending weddings, Bridal parties, assisting other brilliant Bridal hair and makeup artists on the island such as and who have been SO supportive and informative! Wonderful, helpful girls who all seem to support each other rather than be in direct competition which is really lovely to see 🙂
There are copious amounts of hugely talented hair and makeup artists on this creative island and I have been truly blessed to have worked aside a lot of the BEST. Thank you so much guys, I really appreciate everything you have done to make my journey here so far an absolutely amazing one!
Some of the fabulous Bridal photographer’s I have met briefly on my wedding jobs are here:
