wedding hair & makeup
Want to have your hair and makeup done by a 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 Australian Bridal Industry Academy (ABIA) Award Finalist?
The bridal trial
Book your bridal trial with Gavin at least 3 months before your wedding date. The trial is the ideal opportunity for you to tell Gavin what you like and don't like. It's best to not try a completely new look. You should stick as close as possible to your personal hair and makeup style.
Bring to the trial images of hairstyles and makeup that appeal to you. You can also bring your veil or any other hair accessories that you plan to use. Be sure to mention if you have any skin problems or allergies. Arrive with clean, moisturised skin and wash your hair the night before.
Gavin will use airbrush makeup to create a flawless and long-lasting look. It will give your skin a beautiful natural glow whilst concealing skin imperfections effortlessly.
The wedding day
To assist in achieving that flawless look, in the weeks leading up to your wedding day, ensure you exfoliate and moisturise your skin regularly.
On the day, Gavin will arrive at your chosen location, allowing plenty of time to ensure you look picture perfect. You can rely on Gavin to bring out your best features and hide your flaws, should you have any of course!
When Gavin's work is complete, you will be confident about your beauty being captured in images that will last a lifetime.

"As a makeup artist myself, I was in two minds about getting my makeup done on my wedding day. But I knew that I may be nervous and not quite on my game so I decided letting someone else make me up was definitely the way to go! I knew that Gavin was the right person to make me look gorgeous, and his calm presence was exactly what I need to keep me relaxed! From the time I booked my trial right through to the wedding day Gavin was 100% professional & made communication really easy which definitely put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much Gavin for making me feel beautiful on my wedding day!"
"I want to thank-you so much for the work you did on our wedding day. You had so much to do, you worked tirelessly (without a break!) and somehow you turned us all into models! The make-up and hair was perfect for all the girls, and they could not have been happier. The make-up you did on me was flawless and so subtly beautiful. I have never felt so elegant in my life. Also, you were a very calming influence on me, on what turned out to be a stressful day. I would recommend you in a heartbeat. I'm looking forward to my anniversary so that I have an excuse to use your services again! (And also to catch up for a chat :-)"
"Thanks Gavin for everything you have done, my family & myself were very impressed with the makeup you did for us, it lasted all day long (when I say all day I mean over a 14 hour period, especially after it being such an emotional day). Also the hair & makeup at the reception was just amazing."
"Just wanted to say a BIG thanks for the fantastic job you did with my wedding makeup. I was very pleased with the end result as you managed to create the exact 'glowing bride' look I had in mind. I must also thank you for working your magic with mum. I've never seen her look so radiant before! Lots of people commented on it too. Both Katie & Chanty (my BM's) were extremely happy with their look too. Katie even said she would offer you free accommodation & all meals if you could be her live-in make up artist. Lol."
