Sophie - Berkshire
Creating the perfect look for your wedding day is the focus of every booking. Instilling confidence, so that when my brides walk down the aisle they feel & look the best they ever have!
Having qualified from the prestigious Delemar Academy, Ealing Studios, I kick-started my career assisting celebrity make-up artist Lee Pearson with high profile clients such as Katherine Jenkins & Holly Willoughby & working on runway shows for Schwarzkopf, Tony & Guy.
My past clients include; ASOS, Jack Wills, Topshop, Penguin Books, ITV, BBC.
Since specialising in Bridal Hair & Makeup I have had my work featured in; Rock My Wedding Blog, Wedding Ideas Magazine, Natural Wedding Company, World of Bridal Weddings Blog.
I enjoy every aspect from the planning stages to the trial run & the excitement of the wedding day. I meet many brides who have an idea in their mind but don’t know how to achieve it & this is where my real skills come into play; I love showing my clients how to achieve a glowing, radiant skin & beautiful stand-out eyes; keeping the look timeless and natural but still looking incredible. My strong point is managing to create a flawless complexion regardless of skin type.
I take time to get to understand my client’s requirements so I can achieve exactly what they want. Finding a look that suits them best & they are comfortable with. There are so many beautiful bridal hairstyles to choose from, to narrow it down I often trial a couple of mock-up hairstyles for my client so that they can decide which one they prefer on themselves for instance an up-do & down-do. I bring a selection of bridal hair accessories so that we can incorporate an accessory to see what will work with the chosen style.
My favourite brands to use are; Laura Mercier, Bobby Brown, Nars, Estee Lauder, Mac, Too Faced Cosmetics, Charlotte Tilbury, Dior, YSL, Too Faced Cosmetics, Make-Up Geek, Bare Minerals, Morphe, Make-Up Forever, Chanel, Tom Ford, Fudge Professional, Label M, Aveda & Kerastase.
'I can't thank you enough for doing the best job of my make-up! You were a pleasure to have around & your advice was amazing! You created the make-up look I dreamt of having, but never would have known where to start myself! I felt completely confident walking down the aisle, the best I've ever felt! Thank you so much Sophie'

Thank you doesn't come close to how you saved the wedding hair situation this weekend!
From feeling despondent after a pretty horrendous initial hair trial, I found Bridal Stylists and thank goodness the talented Sophie who is not only professional, but a delight to work with. I cannot tell you how happy I was with my dream hair for the wedding and how it lifted such a huge amount of stress at my trial with her where she was so patient, accommodating and an utter perfectionist. Everything every neurotic bride could ask for! I could not have asked for a better hair artist. All my bridesmaids looked beautiful and it was so special to have you as part of my wedding day.
I wanted to let you know how impressed I was and just how grateful I am to you both.

'I wanted to drop you a line, to let you know how many compliments I received on my hair & make-up on Saturday, I really felt like the belle of the ball & that was your doing, thank you and I would recommend you to anyone!'

'Sophie came to do my hair trial on Tuesday and I was absolutely amazed by what she did. I had to send some feedback and to thank you for recommending Sophie to me. She was such a lovely lady who made me feel so at ease and comfortable the minute she came to my front door. She was so helpful in helping me choose the right style for me. Nothing was too much trouble for her. I am so excited to know that my hair will look truly amazing on my wedding day thanks to Sophie.'
