A huge congratulations on your engagement, and I would love to be a part of your special day. I am a Cambridge based hairdresser and make-up artist who specialises in Bridal, Vintage and Special Occassion Hair and Make Up. I have over a decades worth of experience and love to share my knowledge and experience with my clients - making you feel safe and secure that you're going to look your best!
I want to make you feel great about yourself and stress free on your wedding day so you can just relax and enjoy the experience. I love making brides feel confident and I treat every one who comes to me as the unique person they are! I try to make sure I understand your needs and give you the look you have always dreamed of.
If you’re looking for a makeup artist who tailors their service to you and your bridal party then look no further than Ieva. She was kind, warm and looked after me. I was very nervous finding a make up artist as I don’t wear much make up in my day to day life and I wanted to feel like myself in my wedding day. Ieva listened to this and made me feel like a more perfected version of myself but still very much myself. I had a wonderful trial with her, she let my sister come along for opinions and support and on the my wedding day she was exactly where I needed her to be when I needed her to be there. I’ve never felt more beautiful and confident and Ieva played a huge role in this. I cannot thank or recommend her enough to other brides.
From the moment I arrived for my trial I could tell I had made a good choice. This was my first time having my make up done professionally and I was unsure exactly what I wanted. Just a few Pinterest pictures to go by Ieva managed to make me look like a million dollars. I ended up toning it down for my wedding day to feel more like “me”. Excellent communication with Ieva in the lead up meant this was completely care free on the actual day, even whilst breastfeeding my crying daughter! I woke on the morning of the wedding with a massive spot! Ieva managed to cover it! You wouldn’t have a clue it was there (this amazed me! I keep rambling on to my friends about it!) I needed no top up of make up from start to finish, 12 hours!
Onto hair... all I knew was that I wanted to invole a plait.. as I love to wear Dutch braid bunches when working out and thought it would be cute to include some sort of nod to it ;) plus I loved the idea of being a bit boho to go loosely with our woodland and fairytale theme.
We practiced three different styles. I loved them all but one definitely stood out as the front runner for me. Half up half down with a flawless plait joining at the back. On the day Ieva managed to recreate this beautiful look and using a mixture of the artificial flowers I had bought and the real ones the florist had pinned us, created a stunning back, which included my veil (and my something blue).
I can’t thank Ieva enough and I’m honestly hoping to get invited to lots of events just to use her again! Thank you Ieva!
