we ♥ weddings!

Welcome to our Real Weddings blog! From creating the perfect style that compliments your gown to helping you plan your wedding day to ensure you get down the aisle on time, our artists have years (and years!) of bridal experience styling brides for their wedding day all over Melbourne.

Need a little inspiration? Take a peek at some of the gorgeous brides styled by our talented mobile hair and makeup artists.

Weddings can be a pretty intense time so it is important to find just the right hair and makeup artist, after all, you are going to be spending a large part of your big day with them. Not only should they be skilled enough to create the style you want but they also need to be able to help you feel calm and relaxed.

We think all of our artists are super talented and lovely people but we still strongly recommend you book a trial with them first. Trials ensure your stylist is just the right person to help you on your special day. Plus we offer our very unique Trial Guarantee designed to make the selecting process a little less stressful.

If you need more information we have put together a detailed FAQ page filled with questions asked by our brides over the years. If the answer you need is not there then please Contact Us. We are here to help.
