Bridal Makeup London
Creating the most gorgeous bridal makeup & hairstyling loved by brides.
I love transforming brides into beautiful versions of themselves.
Every bride will have looks that make up your own personal style – so your bridal makeup look should reflect that too.
There are lots of details that go into planning your wedding day and one of the most important is your bridal look. Some of my brides know exactly the makeup and hair look they want and others are not ssure, because they generally don’t wear much makeup. I can help advise you on what looks will suit you based on your face shape, skin tone.
The right amount of makeup with complimentary colour choices play a key role in getting you looking effortlessly stylish, gorgeous and modern. I create looks that work in harmony with what nature blessed you with – achieving the most flattering, naturally beautiful bridal looks.
Your Bridal Trial
This is the time when you find out which makeup and hair styles suit you best and will make you the most gorgeous bride.
I highly recommend you book your make up trial well in advance at least around 6 -12 months ahead of your wedding date. Your bridal trial gives you the opportunity to choose your final makeup look and see your makeup/hair idea come to life. It might feel strange at first to see a new makeup look and hairstyle as you may have a tendency to have the same style everyday. However, you’ll be surprised you may fall in love with a lip colour you’ve never tried before.
To get the most out of your trial, I encourage brides to be as honest and upfront as possible during your trial and also try to be open minded, although you would never be asked to try something you would be uncomfortable with. Together we work out any tweaks and changes you may wish to make or do differently on the day – ie change of lipstick colour. This is completely normal.
Once you have decided on your chosen make-up, hair or both, photographs will be taken and products will be noted to make sure that this is re-created for you on your wedding day.
You will need to allow up 2hrs for your bridal makeup trial, for hairstyling the trial will take 2 to 2.5 hours for hairstyling. Sometimes its a little less or more slightly more it depends on each individual bride.
All trials are held at my home studio in Stratford East London (Zone 2-3) to fit around current wedding bookings so trial dates are subject to change occasionally.
PLEASE CONTACT ME WELL IN ADVANCE TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT – I’d recommend that you book your makeup artist and hairstylist as soon as you book your venue. Don’t leave yourself having to compromise on looking anything less gorgeous.
Your Wedding Day
Its your wedding day! one of your most important days of your life. Get ready to Wow everyone, with your gorgeous bridal look
Its natural to be a little nervous or anxious but don’t worry I’m highly experienced in how the wedding morning works and I’ll do everything I can to create a calm, relaxed environment, ensuring you and your bridesmaids enjoy the bridal preparations from start to finish! All you have to do is sit back, relax and allow me to work my magic.
On your wedding day, I will arrive at the agreed time and will stay until you are ready to leave for your ceremony. Last minute touch ups may be needed ensuring that your bridal look is polished, ready for your special day. Your bridal makeup will take around 1 to 1.5 hours depending on your chosen look. Hairstyling will take roughly around 1.5 hrs
Ideally bridal hair is done first and in two parts depending on your chosen look, so for example it may require your hair to be set in curls first, then your makeup is applied whilst the hair is setting, then followed by finishing hair-styling touches. Hairstyling will take roughly around 1.5 hours. The rest of the bridal party’s prep takes approx 45 to 50 minutes for makeup and the same for hairstyling per person. I will require a clear space with a table for my kit and mirror, ideally by a window would be a bonus.
Your Wedding Party
I also need to ensure that the choice of make up for the bridal party is manageable in the time available on the wedding day itself. This will depend on a variety of factors, including the size of the wedding party. We discuss all this (and more!) at the make up trial. Sit back, relax and let me take care of your bridal party. Simply choose your gorgeous make-up look and I’ll leave your bridal party looking and feeling fabulous in time for the ceremony. If needed I can be accompanied by an assistant to help with time.
I’m based in London but travel to Essex, Surrey and surrounding areas.
