Vickie Ellis Makeup Artist
Vickie Ellis is one of the UK’s most sought after stellar makeup artists. Vickie trained at The London College of Beauty Therapy and Greasepaint School of Makeup. Her work has a timeless, flawless sense of perfection and allure that attracts an iconic A list following. Vickie has worked on high octane fashion editorials with Colin Morgan, Eleanor Tomlinson, Katy McGrath and Jenny Agutter and she is the go to makeup artist for the most discerning brides who want to look and feel like a celluloid goddess on their big day. Vickie takes extraordinary care over her brides to be, and no detail, desire or request is too much trouble.
As she says, “I want you to spend the most important day of your life feeling like a modern Grace Kelly or Elizabeth Taylor. I want you to feel like a queen and treasure that beautiful memory forever – let me make your dream of yourself come true.
From my experience I understand that most brides are not used to being the centre of attention and find the idea of being looked at and photographed all day somewhat daunting. My job is to re-create your look at your preparation venue in a calm, relaxing and friendly way to help put you at ease and melt those nerves away.
Before your wedding day we shall have discussed a schedule for people having their makeup done and to fit around other arrangements; for example yours/others hair being prepared, flowers arriving, a quiet moment or bite to eat (very important for you) and everybody getting dressed.
I will be there with you until you are dressed and ready to leave to get married for any last minute touch ups."
