Completely surpasses all expectation
It’s not often that a service completely surpasses all expectation, but in the case of Ganga Make Up Artist and Hair Stylist, I can say wholeheartedly that has been the case! When I first approached Ganga to check her availability what struck me, over and above the highly skilled make up applications in her vast portfolio, was the level of professionalism applied, her written and verbal communication really set her apart. My trial was a wholly pleasant experience, in a private and relaxed environment I relayed my vision through full consultation with Ganga for my hair and Make Up look. A variety of styles were trialled so I felt good value for money was achieved, most importantly that Ganga fully understood my vision for the day! I had always wanted to try airbrush makeup and I was not disappointed. The morning of our ceremony was planned with precision. Prior to the morning I received emails with the exacting detail of how the morning would progress Ganga arrived promptly with her equipment and immediately put me at ease! I wanted to look and feel my most beautiful on our special day and Ganga achieved that with finesse! I am so grateful to have found Ganga, her skills in the field coupled with her fabulous and fun personality mean the sky really is the limit for this talented, innovative and qualified MUA. Sincerely Ganga thank you for helping to transform me into the goddess I wanted to be on the most important day of my life xxxx

Airbrushed me and my sister!
Absolutely love Ganga and Kay! I got airbrushed by Ganga for my wedding 3 years ago and loved everything about it! It lasted all day and Ganga took the time to really understand what I wanted. Now for my sisters wedding we went back to Ganga (no doubt about it!). She once again really understood what my sister was going for and pulled out all the stops to give her the look she wanted! The airbrush make up was amazing and lasted all day! Me and my mum had our hair and make up done by Kay, whilst we didn't have a trial or meet Kay beforehand, she made us feel comfortable and like Ganga, she made every effort to understand what we wanted and we both really loved the finished product! All 3 of us got complimented all day! Thank you both, we'll definitely be coming back again! Xxx

Professional, helpful and friendly, with fantastic make-up skills
I used Ganga for my indian wedding and she did a fantastic job with my make-up, hair style and helped getting me dressed. At the trial she listened to what I wanted, gave suggestions and tried different looks. I had the airbrush foundation and it was incredibly lightweight but at the same time had high coverage, did not go oily or look cakey; it definitely beats high-end make-up brands! Ganga is very professional, helpful and friendly person with fantastic make-up skills and I was really happy with the end result and would not hesitate to recommend her!

I felt like a Hollywood actress! Look no further for your big day
I felt like a Hollywood actress getting ready for my night out on the red carpet on my wedding, all thanks to Ganga - she really is amazing! I spent a lot of time researching hair and make up artists online and I'm very glad I did, as I was super happy with my choice and outcome in the end. From the very first inquiry, to the numerous emails that followed since, the trial and the big day itself Ganga has been very professional, helpful and clearly a brilliant make up and hair artist with a passion for what she does. She goes the extra mile by helping her brides to get ready with the dress, shoes and jewellery on and stayed to facilitate the photographer taking photos at the end too. You really need look no further for your big day, I could not recommend Ganga enough to the bride and bridesmaids - she did an amazing job with the hair stuling of my two bridesmaids and having one person expertly do it all took a lot of the stress away.

FAQ
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

It would have to be my first ever international bridal booking I did in France. The weather was perfect, we did the make-up and hair out on the balcony of this huge castle! It was such a stunning view while I was getting her ready.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

I don’t have a signature style and I never want to. My aim is to give my client what they want and what suits them, whether it be a bride or on set for a national campaign. But I would say majority of my brides come to me because they want a NATURAL GLAM look that's MODERN but TIMELESS.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Going to Paris to be Sonam Kapoor Ahuja's personal make-up artist for Paris Haute Couture week in January 2020.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Set a date and get researching! A lot of businesses get booked well in advanced, if you want to get the suppliers you would like it is highly recommended to book in as soon as possible. Some of my brides book 2 years in advance!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Bride & Groom had printed out thank you scrolls for the immediate family. It had the mother of the bride and groom both in an emotional state of happy tears.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Email enquiry and then a bespoke quote is sent from one of our team members or PA. Then we would get the bride in for a trial, we usually recommend this in advance to try out and see what a bride is comfortable and happy with. Thereafter we book the bride in to secure her date/s with initial fees and booking forms. After this, the bride can sit back and relax knowing I'll be there on the day and she can continue to move on to other wedding planning. I usually do a skincare routine with the bride via video consultation to ensure she is using the right products for her skin and show her how to apply them. On the wedding day I spend a good amount of time doing hair, make-up and the dressing, a bride should not be rushed. The hair and make-up should be an experience, it is the first thing you do in the wedding morning and it should be enjoyable journey of getting ready! I then will stay for pictures with the photographer. There are cases where brides need me to stay for longer on the day and this is not an issue, ever bride is different and unique so their process may be slightly different as it is all tailored to what each bride needs and wants.

What do you love most about your job?

Meeting and building great relationships with my clients. I believe you attract certain types of people into your life, I'm very fortunate that I attract brides who are exactly like myself, women who love luxury, being pampered but also care for the environment (I'm big on reducing plastic waste in my kit!).

What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?

Good skincare is the base of any good make-up. Watch my serious called The Bridal Advice Series on YouTube for some extra tips! If you're a bride of mine you'll get a bespoke one-to-one consultation on skincare.

How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?

Keeping a bride calm on the day starts from when a bride sends an enquiry. Myself or PA will keep in contact regularly with the bride and send reminders during the wedding week to ensure they are all prepped in advance for the day to eliminate stress. I'm big on time keeping, I feel like lateness stresses out a bride so I always turn up on time. I have lots of different music playlists for my brides depending on how they are feeling, so that's the final cherry on the top, they can choose between love, romantic songs or jazz up the morning with some more upbeat music!

What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?

Be mindful. The day will go so fast so take a moment to take it all in. When you are getting your dress on, be present in that moment to remember it, if you think ahead too much it will go by so fast and you won't remember the day.
