"I wouldn't want to wake up with anyone else but Ely on my wedding day!'
I love this quote from the lovely Lowri De Laria (2009) after her spectacular wedding in the hills of Umbria, Italy.
What a privilege to be part of such a special day! It's a great joy to be able to share that wedding-morning buzz. I can be there with you whether it's a bride and six bridesmaids or a simple elopement. Your morning's preparations will be in safe hands!
I use only high-end products and I am working towards a 100% cruelty-free hair and makeup kit.
I pride myself on listening to a bride's needs in order to create a look that is essentially a 'more enhanced version of yourself'.
In 2004 I decided to follow my dream. Graduating from The Delamar Academy, London, I began a career in the wonderful world of T.V. and Film, and wow, what a blast! I loved every minute of it. Even the last-minute call-ups, 4am starts and 14 hour days! Needless to say, those hours can be tough to fit into family life!
Since 2011 I've been back home in beautiful Cumbria, focused on applying my skill and experience to bridal hair & make-up. I've swapped bustling film studios for tranquil Lake District wedding venues and sky-high fashion hair for flowing veils!
I still very much love the job I do, and bringing that professionalism to a bride's special day is a huge source of pride and enjoyment to me.
The thank-you cards and testimonials that I receive from my lovely brides make me feel quite emotional and always brings back fond memories of a great morning's wedding preparations. If you would like to write a testimonial please feel free to post here.

"Ely was my make-up LEGEND for my wedding at Silverholme Manor in the Lake District. She is simply brilliant. Ely did my bridal make-up and also for all of the Bridesmaids. She was so attentive to each of the girls that they ended up looking like the most stunning version of themselves. I cannot thank you enough for making the morning of my wedding so special. J xx"
