There are many factors that allow a bride and her bridesmaids to feel their very best on the big day: the dresses, the shoes, the bouquet.... I believe hair and make-up are equally important, and often regrettably overlooked.
I always consult in advance with my brides, and practice make-up looks and hairstyles that will suit them and their dress, and fill them with confidence that they are looking, and feeling, their absolute best.
My preferred style is to subtly, naturally enhance the existing beauty inside you. Natural.....unobtrusive, effective....
When should I book my wedding trial run?
There is no set time frame. Some brides organise it 6 months in advance, some two weeks nbefore the big day. I would recommend scheduling one sooner rather than later so that you are confident and clear about how you are going to look on your wedding day.
What happens if I don’t like the make-up?
We will collaborate closely in advance, and on the day, to create a look you are happy with. It is critical that we get your look just the way you want it so that you still feel like you, but flawless. You will feel more confident and stunning, ready to make that big entrance.
Only when you are totally happy do you pay a deposit for your big day booking.
“Hugely talented and able to interpret the wishes of even the most exacting bride (and her opinionated entourage), Keely is exactly the sort of person every bride should have in close attendance on their wedding day.
She is an extremely skilled make-up artist who hits the target every time, ensuring that brides quite simply look like the best possible version of themselves.
Aside from her technical abilities, Keely is also able to expertly handle the emotional intensity of a wedding day. Her calming nature, extensive experience and unflappable personality are, in many ways, equally as important as her amazing abilities to wield those make-up brushes”. AN-S London
Keely not only effortlessly transformed me into a beautiful bride, she brought an air of calm with her and was utterly professional from start to finish. She has incredible style and taste herself and produced a wonderful look that said 'natural beauty'. I can't recommend her enough. E T-S London
