Louise is 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.

I pride myself on being able to translate verbal ideas and trends into desired looks through my makeup passion, having a giggle, making a client feel completely comfortable in my hands.
There’s something wonderful about the diversity of makeup, that feeling you get when mastering the perfect look, and making someone feel so special and being able to witness the glow with confidence in them that makes my job the best and most rewarding in the world!
Phoebe began her makeup journey by assisting at weddings whilst living in Australia. Although she was mainly cleaning brushes and calming nerves she just loved the buzz and excitement of getting someone ready for the biggest day of their lives. She knew on her very first wedding that she had found her future career.
Back in the U.K. she began working with Laura Mercier, the pioneer of the ‘flawless face.’ Phoebe fell in love with this brand and their message. It was, and continues to be, everything she stood for in makeup: making women look as beautiful as possible while making them look like themselves.
More recently she has worked with Dr Hauschka, the premium skincare and makeup brand, creating social media content for their limited edition makeup collections. As someone obsessed with a flawless base, this is a perfect fit for her.
Having been freelance for some time, last year Phoebe completed the five day Advanced Bridal Makeup Course at the award-winning Kristina Gasperas Beauty Academy ( the same place Kellie goes for her training!) Kristina continues to be her mentor and inspiration.
Whilst training with Kristina, Phoebe also discovered her love for photography and it’s a joy to see her clients reactions on a trial when she shows them how their make up appears through a lens. Phoebe believes she has learnt from the best in the business. This training has enhanced her versatility and confirmed her philosophy that every woman deserves to feel her absolute best!
