Full Description
I’m based in Kent and have team members in London, Hertfordshire, and Surrey so we work across the South East, as well as working with brides who are arranging destination weddings. On your wedding day, you deserve to feel like a million dollars which is why I only use luxury skin and makeup products to achieve a flawless bridal look. I work with products from the likes of Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, Charlotte Tilbury, and MAC, Lancôme, YSL and Kevyn Aucoin, and I can also provide cruelty-free, vegan, and hypoallergenic products on request. Everything I use will look as amazing in real life as it will look on camera, and are all designed to last the whole day. Because I’m working on photoshoots for fashion and editorial clients when I’m not working weddings and events, my kit is kept really up to date. I also hope to add a sense of calm to your day, which is why I make sure everything is planned and scheduled in advance. I’ve worked over 60 London Fashion Week shows so know how to keep calm under pressure and know how to keep everyone calm around me. I’ll always go out of my way to make nervous or anxious brides feel incredible. Being part of someone’s special day really is an honour and it’s one of the reasons I absolutely love my job. I really look forward to getting to know you and your vision for your perfect wedding day so that we can work together to make it happen.

I couldn't have been happier with the outcome and spent the whole day feeling confident
Mel was incredibly helpful and supportive both during my trial and on my wedding day itself. During the trial, she was generous with her time to ensure we settled on the right style for both my hair and make-up. On the wedding day itself, she was early and understanding about queries and uncertainties during a very busy morning. At the end, I couldn't have been happier with the outcome and spent the whole day feeling confident - which enabled me to focus on enjoying the day and taking in every moment. I would definitely recommend Mel to any family member, friend or anyone looking for someone professional to help on their wedding day.

She did an incredible job on me and the bridesmaid
Mels Brides did all of the make up for our recent wedding. She did an incredible job on me and the bridesmaids and even managed to please my Mom. All of us looked our best. Her style of naturally enhancing what you already have made us look natural but flawless. She was punctual and fun on the day whilst always being professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mel to anyone who wanted a spruce up for an event big or small. Thank you for being a part of our day

Thanks Mel!
Mel did my make up for my wedding and I cannot recommend her highly enough! From the start, she was highly engaged, communicative and professional; listened to my brief and were happy to discuss ideas and inspiration. I particularly liked how many different ideas and styles Mel suggested for make up and how inspired she is by fashion. She also did my mum’s make up and made the morning getting ready so much fun. Thanks Mel!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Prior to your wedding, and either side of your trial, we will have a conversation over email where we share pictures and ideas, working together to find the perfect match on Instagram, Pinterest, and in bridal magazines. I’ve found that this is a great way to find something that makes you feel amazing and creates a timeless beauty that will live forever in your photographs. Ahead of the trial, we will have some back and forth around what your vision is for the day and I’ll provide you with a mood board for you to feedback on. This way, when we go into the trial we should both have a really good idea of your desired outcome.
