Mobile Wedding Hair Styles

Hello, and congratulations on your engagement!!!  Welcome to my mobile bridal hair and makeup services.

As a freelance hairdresser, working with brides provides some of my most fulfilling work, and is by far the most fun! If I had to describe my approach to wedding hair in one word, it would be ‘listening’. The more I learn about you and your vision, the better I am able to fit this to your unique attributes and bring out the best in you. Hair trials offer the perfect opportunity to do just this.

For your wedding trials, I offer a friendly, relaxed environment for you or your complete party here at my home-studio in Chineham, Hampshire.  Here we can take our time going through your ideas (please look at the gallery to help) and combine these with my wealth of experience to prepare you to look your best on your big day, so you can be confident that you will look sensational.  If necessary, I can arrange to visit you for your trials (please note appropriate travel expenses will apply).

On your wedding day, I will travel to you at either your home or the wedding venue. Based in Hampshire, I cover areas including Berkshire, Surrey, Wiltshire, Sussex, Greater London, London, Middlesex, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. I am able to travel throughout the UK and abroad when required, providing the appropriate travel and hotel expenses are covered.

When it comes to the big day my approach can be summed up simply as ‘prepared’. Having worked with you to put together an exact idea of what we are doing, I arrive in plenty of time, and following a timetable agreed by you. We will have you looking sensational in time for one of the most memorable events of your life.

Having specifically focused on weddings since 2000, and later choosing to expand my skill set by introducing make-up in 2006, I have trained at AOFM in London as well as attending numerous other specialist make-up courses. These include the ‘Jemma Kidd Make-Up School’, ‘Delamer Academy’, and ‘The Session School’. I am constantly evolving artistically and am supported with extensive training and experience, so that you can ensure you are receiving the best quality service with total confidence.

My work is supported by specifically chosen products, selected carefully for their quality and reliability. I have all the choice you will need when it comes to hair and make-up products, with a make-up kit full of MAC, Chanel, Bobbie Brown, Benefit, Yves Saint-Laurent, Shu Uemura and much more. Hair products used include products supplied by Joico, Wella, L’Oreal, Tigi and Bumble and Bumble.

Why not take a moment to contact me for an informal chat about what you have in mind.

Each one of my brides is unique: I will be at your side to ensure that you look and feel your absolute best.


We had an amazing day and I was absolutely thrilled with all the hair and make up it was perfect. I agree it was a chilled and fun morning getting ready and exactly what I had hoped for. Thank you very much.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for all your wonderful hard work last Saturday. I am so glad I chose you to make me the radiant bride. I felt amazing, confident and truly grown up. What you did to the girls also was beautiful. Everyone commented how beautiful my eyes were & my hair. Thank you thank you. Lastly Giles was over taken with emotion and cried as soon as he saw me. I can't wait to see the photos. I will send some on too.

THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for all your excellent work for Felicity's wedding. You could not have been more helpful. It was such a great idea to have a trial with both Felicity and me, the mother of the bride. You certainly understood what we were wanting and the end result was just great! I am still amazed at the way you arrived at the agreed time and worked right through to the deadline on only glasses of water! You were very patient with dithering bridesmaids and kept the whole preparation very calm. Your part in the preparation was at the beginning of the day and you really set us all up for a brilliant day. Felicity arrived at the church on time which was the present she wanted to give to Sam! Thank you very, very much. We will always be grateful to you.

Vivienne did my wedding make up back in 2010 and I visited her more recently for a makeup lesson in May 2012. I went back to her because she is very friendly, listens and I'm pleased with the results. My wedding make up was everything I could have hoped for as I looked an enhanced version of myself plus the makeup stayed put all day. She arrived on time and helped to make the celebrations relaxed and enjoyable. I was especially pleased how Vivienne worked with my mum who has dementia and Mum was very pleased with how she looked. The makeup lesson was great and Vivienne was very patience with me. She showed me how to recreate the different looks I was interested in and tried to use as much of my own makeup as she could. I came away much more confident and I now have 3 looks I can do at home without looking crazy.
