HELLO AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
We’re not going to lie, we have gently been easing ourselves back into the new year after a hecticly busy 2017! We covered an astonishing 543 weddings last year and each and every one of our brides was an absolute delight to spend our time with. Reflecting on the previous year we have learnt a tremendous amount from our brides and how their needs are constantly changing with regards to having a professional styling team on their wedding morning.
Its very important for us that all our brides know, first and foremost, that we are absolutely wedding crazy! All of our team work in Hair and Makeup full time with 80% of our work being Bridal. We are continually setting new trends and working together within the team to learn and develop our skillset. As you know, our team is small and elite and we really value each and every client.
Last year we saw an increasing number of brides who came to us after they had booked ‘professional’ hair and makeup trials and had experienced a complete disaster with ‘self-taught’ hair and makeup artists. At Team Glam brides can rest assured that we are all fully trained from reputable colleges, fully insured and committed to making sure that you leave trials feeling confident about your overall look for your wedding day. It’s never an issue to try more than one look, our trials allow two hours per service; more if necessary, we just ask you to make us aware at the time of booking and this can be organised for you.
Many brides arrive at our door with a clear cut idea about how they would like to see themselves on their wedding day, whereas others may need a little more guidance and advice. Either way, we have handled many beauty situations and you can trust that we have the knowledge and experience to help you make the best possible choices.
For Team Glam, your wedding morning should be the first part of your special day that you really get to relax and enjoy. So, sit back and let us take care of that for you. We always put together a time schedule so that all members of your bridal party know exactly where to be and when. We do not leave anything to chance, taking time to account for the registrars in civil weddings, journeys to church, bridal portraits and all the little bits in-between, its good to know that we have all that in hand for you.
We also provide a luxury full bridal concierge service on your wedding morning and this is complimentary. We do not dessert any of our brides until the moment they walk down the aisle. From assisting our brides with gowns, accessories, veil and lastly perfume we will be with you and on hand for any last-minute touch ups so you feel completely relaxed, beautiful and ready for that moment you have been patiently waiting for.
What’s New for team glam in 2018?
We are very excited that we now have our very own online store consisting of bridal accessories. At present, this is mainly hair accessories and a small selection of clutch bags from the incredible designer Katie Loxton, but watch out for more to come!
We are delighted to welcome our newest team member Charlotte, our bespoke bridal hair accessories designer. Charlotte has a wealth of experience in fashion and design, having worked in fashion for twenty years with companies such as LK Bennett. Charlotte also trained as a milliner and we are looking forward to bringing out a range of fascinators and hats for the Mothers later this year.
All of our brand-new hair accessory designs are exclusive to Team Glam and are individually hand made. They can be customised to suit each individual client and the team with have samples for you to glimpse at whilst having your hair and makeup trials. If there is anything that catches your eye or you wish to have made or customised we are happy to provide a bespoke quotation.
The last couple of years we have been teaching hair and beauty students in colleges across the country.
We are extremely proud that our training has now been accredited by HABIA. HABIA are the Hair and Beauty Industry Authority meaning we are also recognised world wide.
As of April we will be offering new course dates to aspiring bridal hair and makeup artists that are looking to gain an accredited certification. These course will be two days and cover a variety of practical and theory training. To find out more please click here.
We will also be holding short evening master classes for those hair and makeup artists who are looking to continue to develop their skillset. Dates will be announced very shortly so watch this space.
Lastly we will be shooting a collection of tutorial videos in February to support all our hair and makeup courses so students will have the resources to recap on what they have learnt in the studio. From the feedback that we have had received from previous students we are hoping this will be a very useful tool.
We are looking forward to getting involved in some editorial work this year with british bridal designer Savin London. Having worked on his last two campaign shoots we are now moving forward to create some incredible editorial bridal looks for Spring/Summer.
Our team are constantly working on their portfolios to showcase a variety of new skills and styles that will inspire brides for their own weddings. We are looking forward to working with many friends in the industry and creating some incredible new images in 2018!
So to all of our 2018 brides, we look forward to meeting you over the next few months for endless hours of trials and deliberating over different shades of lip colour! Rest assured that we are always on hand to help and that if there is anything you want to know we would be more then happy to advise!
Heres to another super busy year!
Carla, Tara and the Team. xxx
