My name's Louise, I'm 33 years old, and I'm a fully qualified wedding make up artist and hairstylist from Cheadle Hulme, Cheshire.
I trained in wedding hair and make up after my passion for hairstyling attracted comments from family members that I should use my talent professionally.
Taking this on board and wanting to see where it could lead, I enrolled on a hair and make up course at The School of Make Up in Stockport, alongside working full time at my job in journalism.
After around 6 months of loving my new line of work and with several weddings under my belt, I decided to leave my journalism career behind and focus on my new venture as a wedding hair and makeup artist full time.
I carried on building my experience with weddings close to home in Cheshire and in October 2016, as the UK wedding season was coming to an end, I flew over to New Zealand for 4 months to work their wedding season.
With New Zealand popular for elopement weddings, I worked on brides from all over the world, including Japan, China, America, Australia and Europe. It gave me amazing experience in the wedding hair and make up industry and some interesting memories (some brides didn't speak a word of English and I got by with the help of a non-fluent translator!). With most brides not having time for a trial, I also quickly learnt the art of nailing the look first time!
Now that I'm back on UK soil, I'm loving working on English weddings again and now cover areas throughout the North West of England, whilst still being based in Cheshire. I can't wait to meet you and hear what look you have in mind for your wedding.
If you're interested in having me as your wedding hair and makeup artist please get in touch, I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
