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. Also, please enquire about discounts for bridal parties getting married between the months of January to March.

What is your most memorable wedding?
My most memorable wedding was when a bride, on the morning of her wedding, advised me she no longer wanted to marry her fiancé.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Romantic, Sophisticated, Elegant, Bohemian, feminine
What about your business are you most proud of?
I am most proud to have won the award for Wedding Hairstylist of the Year, competing against the finest in the industry.
What is your No. 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?
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Grow your hair, keep it in good condition and look after your skin from the moment you get engaged.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
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.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Your hair and makeup should still be looking perfect, but do touch your lipstick up every now and then.
