For the perfect film star wedding treatment, look no further than Beehive Brides. Professional hair and make up artist Fiona Maynard is a fully qualified hairdresser with over 20 year’s experience, including work published in many British and continental hair magazines. Specialising in colouring and dressing long hair, Fiona decided to boost her training ten years ago to become a fully qualified make-up artist.
Based in Bristol and covering the South West area, Beehive Brides can offer you vintage bridal hair and make-up from timeless, classic glamour to full on retro styling.
Having worked for years in TV and film, Fiona’s picked up lots of industry insider tips, all of which she uses to bring out your natural beauty and glow on your wedding day. Thoroughly experienced at calming the nerves, Fiona and Beehive Brides will help your wedding day get off to a beautiful start, arriving in plenty of time so you can enjoy the luxury of a professional beauty service in your own home and using a make-up kit that includes ranges from MAC, Clinique, Laura Mercier and Clarins.
Practice makes perfect, so Fiona recommends a trial around four weeks before your wedding day. She offers a detailed consultation where you can both look at favourite pictures and styles, details of your wedding dress, any matching veil and hair decorations as well as the colour and type of flowers you’re planning. She’ll work with you to try out various options with hair and make-up until you’re both happy with the chosen look. With her relaxed professional approach, there’s no need to be nervous about looking dramatically different on your wedding day and if you’re keen on a more natural look, this is exactly what she’ll provide and you can simply relax and enjoy the pampering.
Need inspiration? Trends this year have included lots of buns, plaits and plenty of feathers and jewelled hair accessories. Eyeliner’s still big and fresh, dewy complexions are all the rage. Check out the Beehive Brides gallery for more style inspiration.
