Kellie

Hi, my name is Kellie, I have been a fully qualified hairstylist for over 23 years.

Soon after starting my apprenticeship I found I had a real passion and flair for creating hairstyles for weddings and special occasions.

During my career I have been fortunate enough to have learnt from some of the best names in the industry.

I have gained qualifications, diplomas, and training from The Paul Mitchell Training Academy, The London Hair Academy, Brushstroke Media, Kristina Gasperas Academy, and most recently trained with the lovely ladies at Back-staged who are responsible for all the amazing updo’s on Strictly Come Dancing.

I am also qualified to do hair extensions using the weave and tape method which brings an added service to my brides wishing to have the wedding hair of their dreams for their big day!

These have all helped me to enhance and develop my skills in what I love best.

I believe that continuous training to further my knowledge and understanding is key, I like to gain as much experience in my career as possible, so I can bring my brides the latest in trending wedding styles and have the knowledge and confidence to go forward and create something bespoke and unique to each individual bride.

I created my wedding brand Bridezilla with a very good friend of mine Louise. It’s great to be able to work with others who are equally as passionate as me, she is highly experienced, talented, and knowledgeable in her trade which ensures we can give you the best service possible.

Having had the privilege of looking after many beautiful brides, I fully understand the importance of your wedding day.

Every bride has a different idea of how they want to look, and I pride myself in always listening to your requirements and working with you to enhance your best features, taking into account your face shape and the style of your dress to ensure everything works in harmony for your overall look on the day.

Louise

Hi, my name is Louise, as an experienced beauty therapist and make-up artist I have been helping brides look their very best on their special day for nearly 10 years. I have always been deeply passionate about make-up as a form of art, and how it helps enhance a person’s natural beauty.

I qualified from the London School of Hair and Beauty in 2012, specialising in bridal make-up. Since then I have loved supporting countless brides and bridal parties, helping each create a unique style perfect for them.

It is always an absolute privilege to be entrusted to do your make-up, and creating these looks is incredibly rewarding for me. I take pride in my work, always checking that everything looks amazing and the final look is exactly what you wanted.

The morning of any wedding day can be a frantic affair, but you can rely on me to be calm, friendly and relaxed.

 

Whether helping just the bride or the entire bridal party I will ensure we have plenty of time to complete the perfect look for you.

I am focussed and professional in my approach, using only high-end products which work best with your skin type. I will always offer a trial in advance, so you are completely comfortable with the final look.

In addition to bridal work I love to experiment with different make-up looks. I have worked on professional photoshoots for the likes of Cosmopolitan Magazine, Circque de Soleil, French Connection and Oxfam. I have also supported the lead make-up artists at London Fashion Week and Oxford Fashion Week numerous times and was part of the make-up team working with young aristocratic debutants with their “coming out” at the annual Queen Charlotte’s Ball.
