Traditional, vintage, boho, festival or alternative; whichever style you plan on channelling on the big day, our glam squad has the all the tools and talents needed to turn your bridal beauty ideas into reality. We’re experienced in all types of bridal styling and there isn’t a pin curl we can’t set, a feline flick we haven’t mastered or a bridesmaid’s braid we can’t create.
The Main Event
Wedding mornings are totally our thing. Our bridal hair and makeup artists will arrive professional, prepared and raring to go. All you have to do is pop yourself somewhere comfy and grab a glass of something sparkling to numb those nerves.
We all love a good pamper and if you can’t feel like a million dollars on your wedding day, when can you? We promise the conversation will flow just as well as the champagne and there’ll be plenty of girlie chit-chat between blushing those cheeks and perfecting those brows. We’ll recreate exactly the same look as the one you decided on following your trial, or we will create the look you’ve had your heart set on and discussed with us prior to your wedding day – if no trial was required. We can place a tiara with more panache than the Fairy Godmother and the same can be said for hairpieces and veils too!
Once we’ve worked our magic and you’ve checked yourself out in the mirror at least three times, we’ll leave you to get into your dress whilst we tidy our tools and pack everything away.
There ain’t no wedding without a little commitment and we’re in it for the long haul – we’ll never abandon our bride in her hour of need. We’ve spent many a morning lacing dresses and fastening bracelets long after everyone else has left for the church. With your bridal hair and makeup look complete, and your bridesmaids looking equally gorgeous, you’ll be begging your driver to get you to the church on time so you can show it off!
The Trial Run
A bridal beauty trial is a great way for us to determine what look you’ll be rocking on the big day. Start scouring Pinterest and tearing out inspiration from those magazines, because we’re about to create bridal hair and makeup magic. Our experts love a good chat about all things wedding and we’ll find out what look you’re after, offering some of our professional advice along the way.
Our mobile bridal hair and makeup magicians will come to you at home and we recommend having your trial during the day if possible when the light is most like what it will be on your wedding day. A hair or make-up only trial takes around 1 to 1.5 hours, whilst both hair and makeup usually takes around 2-3 hours. So, whether you prefer to keep your feet grounded in the UK or you’re spreading your wings to tie the knot abroad – we can glam you up anywhere, anytime! We are known to fly our art to our beautiful brides wherever they are in the world!
Quick Tip : Plan your trial for the afternoon before a big night out, there’s nothing worse than being all dolled up with nowhere to go!
