Ella, East Midlands
I am a deeply passionate makeup artist with extensive training having graduated from The London College of Fashion with a BA (hons) degree in Hair, Makeup and Prosthetics for Film & Television. I am constantly inspired by art, nature & fashion. Prior to studying makeup I studied art & photography before discovering my passion for makeup artistry.
In October 2016 I was listed as one of the top five Makeup artists in the Midlands, and in September 2017 I was shortlisted for the wedding awards as 'Beauty Specialist Of The Year' 2018.
I have a great eye for detail and love to work with new people in different environments and I aim to continuously improve upon my learning and skill-set. I am all about clean, understated beauty.
I am currently based in the East Midlands where I specialise in bridal hair & makeup. My work has been published both nationally and internationally and Ihave recently collaborated with Luxury Bridal designer Galia Lahav.
Where do I begin… I am from the UK and had my wedding in Spain. Ella was recommended to me and she was phenomenal! I had a trial with her six months before my wedding and she knew exactly what I wanted, she was so warm, professional and extremely talented which made me feel at complete ease. Ella made up (both hair and make up) 7 of us and 1 flower girl on my wedding day, her calm nature kept me calm and she worked under tight timing pressure, but was so relaxed the whole day. We all absolutely loved our make up and hair - both stayed flawless right up until we took it off. If I could have Ella every day I would, she made me feel like such a princess and I really cannot thank her enough.

Been Irish and planning a wedding in Spain from Australia seemed mad but it was the best decision we made, Ella my hair and Makeup artist made it so easy to communicate and decide on my package, I didn’t met Ella until 2 days before my wedding at my trial and I was blown away with her talent. The morning of the wedding she had myself, 4 bridesmaids and my mum for hair and make up and she was so relaxed and had it timed to protection. I can not say enough good things about the service we received. I picked Ella’s all day package where she was on hand to top us up throughout the day. She made us all look and feel amazing and I would highly recommend her to anyone.

After booking our wedding in Arcos in Spain we quickly realised it was going to be difficult to get suppliers to travel to our location with it being miles away from the coast, but after contacting this beautiful lady, Ella, she assured me travel wasn't an issue. I chose Ella because her portfolio of work on her website was exactly what I was looking for, natural and classy. Although Ella was away travelling for part of the run up to the wedding, she remained in contact via email and she had some very good ideas and tips for me. When we met on the day, she was so calming and organised and took that stress out of the morning for me. She arrived on time and managed to fit 5 of us in for hair and make up before the ceremony. Amazing results, exactly how I wanted everyone's done, she had my vision spot on, knew her stuff and even made a colour up on the day for my lips. Absolutely fantastic from start to finish and a beautiful person inside and out! Would definitely recommend, without hesitation!!

Ella was absolutely amazing the morning of my wedding, there was me, 5 bridesmaids as well as other guests for hair and or make up and ella fitted everyone in seamlessly.
The morning of the wedding was so unbelievably relaxed and it felt like just having another one of the girls there on hand to settle our nerves. The bridesmaids hair was exactly as I’d hoped for and all of our make up was beautiful with ella making sure we were perfect just before our walk up the aisle. All the girls were really impressed that our make up stayed on all day and easily until the early hours of the morning! Which was amazing given the heat!
Absolutely delighted with your work ella and it was fab to have you the morning of the wedding, thank you very much xx
