Please note: Angie and I have now fully retired, and will no longer be taking on Wedding work!
Wife and mother: I love - my family, politeness, all make up, skin care, art and painting, watching and playing tennis, baking cakes, country life (being an ex-farm girl). If I was not a make up artist, I would have loved to have run a small country café, selling my own cakes!
Trained in Beauty Therapy, Reiki, Holistic Therapies, Airbrush make up.
I have been in the Beauty Industry for over twenty-five years, starting as a beauty trainer with, and later taking over, Le Glow Cosmetics with our own line of products before starting to specialise in Bridal make up. Since then I have styled more than 500 wonderful Brides, working in tandem most often with Angie Shorthouse, whose hairdressing skills are second to none! We have also worked on fashion shows, film shoots and had work published in magazines. In all these years, the joy I still get from seeing a Bride looking so radiant on her special day fills me with pride. I feel it is a real pleasure to be asked to be a part of her big day! I have been in the top make up artists directory for Herefordshire for the last few years, with 90% of my work coming from personal recommendations – the highest compliment you can get! Over 33 5* reviews on my Facebook page
I have been working with Angie now for over fifteen years and, as Le Glow Beautiful Brides, we became one of the most successful teams working in Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and South Wales.
My Ideal Bride?
I love the natural, country Bridal look, and love making her look the best she ever could, but I can also cater for the Bride who wants a more glamorous look!
These women are incredible. From the first moment I met them they were warm and welcoming. They made me and my bridesmaids feel so comfortable and at ease. And they are incredibly talented! My makeup stayed put throughout the whole day, even after a few tears! And my hair didn't have a strand out of place. They really do work magic and I felt like a princess thanks to them. I would recommended them to anyone, and already have to everyone I know! Thank you Eleanor and Angie.

Eleanor and Angie are truly amazing artists and the loveliest ladies you could hope to meet! From the bridal trial right through to the wedding day, both were absolutely fantastic, professional and excellent at responding to messages and discussing ideas. On the morning, they were calming influences and it felt like we were getting ready with two of our friends there. I felt like a princess on my wedding day thanks to you two and my hair and makeup didn't look any different 13 hours after it had been done! Thank you so much for everything.
