Hi! I'm Gail Gardner and I'm here to make you look absolutely stunning on your wedding day and to help make your wedding morning go as smooth and stress free as possible.
I have been working as a Professional Hair and Makeup Artist for 15 years and have won 2 Awards for becoming the Wedding Hairstylist of the Year, with the most recent in November of 2016.
I trained at Wella Hair Studios in London, alongside the world acclaimed Patrick Cameron. He gave me the confidence to explore and experiment with hair and that is exactly what I like to do ensuring you have the perfect hairstyle for your wedding day. If you have some ideas of how you would like your hair and makeup to be on your wedding day, email a picture to me along with a photo of your hair length, to get my opinion. I can advise you on how to care for your hair between now and your wedding day and will be able to advise whether you may require hair extensions / padding to help create your desired style. All clip in hair extensions and paddings are supplied by me or we could use your own clip in extensions if you own some. I also have a wonderful array of stunning hair accessories for you to look through, which we can try at your trial. I work comfortably with every kind of hair and love working with wigs and bonded hair extensions too.
I have been working as a Professional Makeup Artist for 17 years and carried out my training 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. Feel free to email me a picture of the desired makeup application you would like for your special day.
I am very calm, and patient, and work quietly, professionally and will help eliminate any stress from your morning by ensuring 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 during quieter periods, but during the months of April to September I work on a minimum of Bride and 2 persons.
I am relaxed, friendly and approachable and will love hearing all about your exciting Hair and Makeup ideas but that’s enough about me! I would love to hear all about you, so please drop me a line and ask me any questions you may have and see if I am available to be with you on your wedding day.
