Sophie - Berkshire
I trained at the renowned Delemar Academy and qualified as a hair and make-up artist in 2007.
My career has taken me on many adventures abroad and on home soil, from
international weddings to e-commerce, television, commercials, catwalk and high profile clients such as Katherine Jenkins and Holly Willoughby.
I take a collaborative approach with my brides, finding a style and look they love based on their personal preferences and my guidance. The wedding day is a hugely special occasion filled with joy, anticipation and excitement, my aim is to ensure my brides feel and look the best they ever have when they walk down the aisle!
My philosophy is less is more to achieve an effortless, timeless look. I love creating soft glam and high summer bronzed goddess looks. A snapshot of my favourite brands include: Huda Beauty, Hourglass, Charlotte Tilbury, Laura Mercier, Nars, Iconic London, MAC, Too Faced Cosmetics, Anastasia Beverley Hills, Maria Nila, Schwarzkopf, Label M, Aveda and Kerastase.
"Sophie was just incredible during my trial, the run up to the wedding and on the day itself. I ended up without hair and make-up stylists around 2 months out from my wedding and she completely saved the day. Thank you again Sophie!
Sophie is super friendly and really put me at ease, nothing was too much to ask and she worked really hard to find the perfect hair and make up styles for me. Sophie took the time to understand the style I wanted and my feedback and really did deliver perfectly.
On the day itself Sophie and her assistant Natasha were an unstoppable force, getting me, my mum and five bridesmaids ready. My hair and make-up were absolutely perfect - I've never had so many compliments! And getting ready went super smoothly due to their diligent time keeping. My mum and bridesmaids all looked beautiful and were so happy with their looks, which lasted all day! Thank you so much Sophie and Natasha, I can't recommend you highly enough."
'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.'
