Gabby fell in love with Makeup and all things beauty related at a young age so at the age of 16 she started a 2 year apprenticeship in Beauty therapy and Makeup artistry.
Over the last 10 years Gabby has gained a wealth of experience working for leading Makeup and skincare brands in the industry such as Lancôme, Shiseido & Liz Earle to name a few and some essential managerial skills working in the number one department store in the world based in Knightsbridge.
Fast forward to the present day Gabby decided to specialise in Bridal Hair & Makeup. She is now based in Hampshire but will travel the UK & Europe for destination Weddings. Gabby's focus as a stylist is to enhance a brides natural beauty whilst ensuring she receives a unique and memorable experience.
Being part of a brides wedding day is a real privilege. The feeling Gabby gets when she leaves a client before she walks down the aisle is indescribable, the emotion and the joy is wonderful to see!

“Gabby Did My Hair And Makeup For My Wedding In France At The End Of August 2020 (As Well As Hair For 4 Bridesmaids And Hair/Makeup For My Mum). Despite All The Chaos In The World, Gabby Never Wavered In Being A Part Of The Day And Her Communication Was Superb.
I Felt A Million Dollars On My Wedding Day And It Was All Thanks To Gabby. My Hair And Makeup Were Done With So Much Love And Care - Gabby Is A True Perfectionist And Makes You Feel So Special And Comfortable. She Was A True Pleasure To Be Around And My Bridesmaids And I Had So Much Fun With Her On The Wedding Morning Getting Ready And Chatting Together.
Gabby Was Originally Booked To Come To My Wedding With An Assistant From The UK. When The Quarantine Rules Were Implemented, Gabby’s Original Assistant Was No Longer Able To Attend. Rather Than Worry Me With This, Gabby Arranged For Another HMUA In France To Assist Her (And There Was No Change In The Price). Alexia (The Replacement Assistant) Was Also Superb And The Hair And Makeup She Did For My Bridesmaids Was Just Beautiful.
Gabby Also Grew Up Near Bordeaux And So Speaks Fluent French. It Was Very Useful For Her To Be Able To Act As Interpreter With The Florist On The Morning Of The Wedding (As My French Is Pretty Woeful!).
I Also Had A Wonderful Trial For My Wedding With Gabby A Couple Of Weeks Before My Wedding (As Did My Mum). She Was So Lovely And Instantly Made Me Feel Relaxed And Pampered. Although I Had Some Ideas, I Wasn’t Really Set On What I Wanted, But Gabby Is Experienced To Know What Will Make You Look Your Best Without Pushing Ideas Or Styles On You. She Has Some Stunning Accessories To Be Able To Sample (But Again Doesn’t Force Them On You In Any Way).
Gabby Has Taken So Many Precautions In Light Of COVID-19 - Her Approach Cannot Be Faulted.
I Feel Like I Found My Perfect HMUA And Also Made A Friend. Thank You So Much Gabby! ”
