I absolutely love my job and love nothing more than helping others and making brides feel amazing on their wedding day! l I feel honoured to be part of one of the most important days of my brides’ lives and I understand the importance of looking and feeling your best on your wedding day. My aim is to bring out your best features and to reveal your natural beauty, encompassing your personal style to make you look and feel amazing!
I will create a bespoke, long lasting bridal hair & makeup look for you- whether it’s a vintage, boho, classic, glamorous or natural style you want.
On your wedding day, I will also be on hand to do any last minute hair and makeup touch-up’s, place your veil and help you into dresses…I’ll stay with you until you are ready to go! I get regular feedback from Brides’ and their families thanking me for being so calm and creating such a calming atmosphere on their wedding morning- something I am very proud of. It’s my job to make you feel special, pampered and beautiful on your wedding morning so that you feel amazing all day long!
You can book me to do both hair and makeup for your bridal party or separately. I do not have a minimum booking number.
I use only the best products in my kit, such as Jane Iredale mineral makeup, Inglot, Chanel, Lily Lolo, MAC and Charlotte Tillbury make-up products and Paul Mitchell, Schwarzkopf, L’Oreal and Aveda hair products.
A trial is recommended for the Bride, if possible, to enable us to meet, get to know each other, to find out all about your wedding i.e your dress, hair accessories, any theme, other wedding inspirations you have and to try out the hair and makeup styles you are considering for your wedding day. Trials take place at my beauty studio or your chosen location (please note, this may incur a travel charge).
My personal makeup style is about enhancing your natural beauty rather than concealing it. Lots of Brides ask me to create a beautiful, flawless and natural makeup. As a Make-Up Artist, I aim to create a timeless look that compliments your natural beauty and your personality, which still looks like you and which will last all day long.
We will work together to discuss your makeup style, likes and dislikes, skincare routine, your wedding style and other things that inspire you for your wedding day makeup. This gives me the opportunity to create a makeup look that you are happy and confident with, which I will re-create on your wedding day. Please allow approx 1 hour for your makeup trial.
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and you want your hair to be perfect! Not everyone’s hair is the same and this is when my experience and creativity comes to hand. I am a hairdresser specialising in bridal styles, with many years of experience, so have styled lots of different hair types and can advise you accordingly. It can often feel overwhelming when thinking about your wedding hair but I will create a beautiful style for you that will last throughout your celebrations.
I recommend that you keep pictures of hairstyles that you like and bring them along to your trial. We can try these hair ideas until you discover the style that is for you! Please bring along any hair accessories you are wearing to try these also.
Short, fine hair, but want an updoo?… don’t worry – this type of hair can be just as versatile and adding extensions and padding can make a big difference to your chosen style. I do not supply hair extensions but will advise you accordingly.
Please arrive for your trial with clean, dry hair and in its natural state- please don’t straighten your hair before you come as this can make your hair resilient to curling (if required). I will advise you on washing your hair prior to your wedding day. Please allow approx 2 hours for your hair trial.
Thanks so much for the massage and facial, perfect way to de-stress and my cold has disappeared - thanks again. PS love the studio x
Thanks v much for my gorgeous 'hair up' for my Mum & Dad's silver wedding, it was so good it stayed perfect for my friend's 21st the next night. Have passed your number on to lots of people who asked where I got my hair done. Thanks again xx
Thank you Lesley for the wonderful job you did on myself and bridesmaids for my wedding. our hairs were amazing and everyone commented on how beautiful we all looked. I would recommend you in a heartbeat you are such a nice lady and will be using you again I'm sure.
Lesley was the best hairdresser & make up artist I could have asked for. She spent lots of time with me, my sister & mum at our trials so I was 100% confident for the big day. On the day Lesley was excellent, helped to keep me calm and did an amazing job on us all. Everyone commented on my hair which I absolutely loved! I would highly recommend Lesley for any wedding - she is the best in her business!
Lesley was/is absolutely outstanding. She create's exactly what is requested and very, very well. She makes you feel so comfortable and keeps calm when things are starting to get stressful !!! I can not recommend her enough, she's a very very talented hair and make up artist.
Thank you Lesley for everything! She was a calming influence on the day, helped everyone decide on what would look best for them and made my birdcage veil look amazing! Thank you so much 🙂
Lesley is a fantastic hairdresser and all round lovely person! She kept me calm on the wedding day, and did all the girls hair exactly as we wanted. The styles lasted all day and got lots of compliments. I would recommend Lesley to anyone!
Lesley did a fantastic job of the hair and makeup for my daughter's wedding at the weekend. We all felt beautiful on the day and still felt that way at midnight! She had to work in a very cramped and very warm hotel room and managed to stay perfectly calm throughout, even though I was probably driving her mad, jumping up and down every few seconds😆 Thanks, Lesley - you gave us all a great start to a great day!
Lesley did my hair and make-up for my wedding in July and was great. She was very friendly and made me feel very comfortable. There was good communication leading up to the day. She arrived promptly and was dedicated to getting the result I wanted and I was very happy. Thank you!
Lesley did my hair and make up along with 3 bridesmaids and my mum. She was amazing! I got married at 1pm so she was with us at 7:30 my make up and hair was just stunning. I can not recommend Lesley enough she is fantastic! Thank you Lesley.xx
