Hi there my name is Amanda Steed and I am a fully qualified makeup artist who specialises in Bridal makeup. Having trained with the internationally acclaimed Samantha Chapman of Pixiwoo, I started my own Bridal Hair and Makeup business which has grown from strength to strength over the last 10 years. I now employs 5 stylists covering Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire as well as London and European wedding venues.
I’m a mother to 2 boisterous boys and wife to a rugby loving husband and my house is filled with testosterone! I take my solace in retreating to my girl cave and indulging in my love of all things pretty and feminine. I have always loved cosmetics and beauty products, experimenting on my dolls and then moving onto my unsuspecting friends as a teenager! I found that I had an aptitude for makeup and hair and was an avid follower of fashion.
As the years have rolled by I discovered that most of all I love weddings! Being a part of someone’s special day and helping the Bride to look beautiful is the most gratifying job in the world, I can honestly say that I love every minute of it. It can be incredibly early starts and very long days, however at every wedding you get a glimpse into another persons life and become part of their memories which they will cherish.
