- Hi! I’m Gail Gardner and I’m here to make you look absolutely breath taking on your wedding day and to help make your wedding morning run as smooth and stress free as possible. I have been working as a Professional Hair and Makeup Artist for 16 years. I trained at Wella Hair Studios in London, alongside the world acclaimed Patrick Cameron. He gave me the confidence to be adventurous with hair and that is exactly what I like to do ensuring you have the perfect hairstyle for your wedding day. I also trained as a Professional Makeup Artist in London alongside some of the most famous makeup artists focussing on Weddings and photoshoots. You will often find me at Masterclasses, keeping up to date with the latest trends. I am calm, work quietly, professionally and will help eliminate any stress from your morning by making sure you have ample time to get ready so you can enjoy a glass of champagne with your wedding party before you take your vows. I will only carry out one wedding per day so you won’t find me rushing off anywhere. Don’t be surprised to find me helping you into your wedding dress or snapping away with my camera to help capture memorable moments if your photographer isn’t around. I am also happy to carry out ‘Bride only’ weddings if you have decided not to have Bridesmaids. I am relaxed, welcoming and approachable and will love hearing all about your exciting Hair and Makeup ideas. If you have a particularly large bridal party requiring both hair and makeup, but an early wedding time, I will arrange for an assistant to work with me on the day. But that’s enough about me! I would love to hear all about you, so please drop me a line and see if I am available on your wedding day. Gail x

What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Book your suppliers very early!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
When the groom stood up before the meal, and told everyone, that whoever birthday was next on their table, got to take home the centrepiece. Everyone immediately got introduced to each other and pretended it was their birthday that day. Great idea for an ice breaker.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
A bride secures my services with a booking form, arranges a trial. At the trial we ensure to find the perfect look for the bride. On the wedding day, I turn up and make everyone beautiful.
What do you love most about your job?

Grow your hair, keep it in good condition and look after your skin from the moment you get engaged.

By showing the bride I have confidence in my work on the day and I have control of the timings so she won't be late. Her family and friends also will help to keep her calm, just by being around her.

Your hair and makeup should still be looking perfect, but do touch your lipstick up every now and then.
