Belles and brides have been amazing from our first email. They have kept in contact through the whole planning process, reminding me if things I may have forgotten and just generally checking in to make sure I was doing okay. They are super friendly and fun ladies, who made me fell calm and relaxed in both my trial and on my wedding day. They made both myself, my bridesmaids and my mum feel so beautiful!! Our make up stayed on all day, even into out after party that went on till 4am the next morning! I am super happy we chose Belles and Brides, we could not have chosen better!

Don’t waste time looking elsewhere - Belles & Brides WILL ensure you feel like a Queen on your Wedding Day!
Communication has been 100% since the day I inquired, in fact out of all my vendors, Belles & Brides were the only ones who kept in constant contact even though at that stage my wedding was a whole year away! I truly appreciated this level of professionalism & I think is key in the Wedding Industry.
Another great thing about this business is they offer payment plans!
My bridesmaids, mum & I all felt so beautiful on the day. The Tauranga based girls who looked after us were lovely and really easy to get along with & chat to which is always a plus.
All in all, I am genuinely happy with having had Belles & Brides as a part of my special day & I would gladly recommend them to any new Bride.
Thank you so much!

JUST FRICKEN AMAZING! Oh my goodness, where to start?!
From day one they were prompt with email reply’s which was exactly what I needed since I was planning an NZ wedding from Australia. They turned up early to both the trial and on the wedding day. They were upfront with prices and there were no hidden costs anywhere. I had the pleasure of having Sophie & Jacqui, who were both genuinely lovely girls. They endured having half my family supervising them with real professionalism and were good for a laugh. I felt relaxed, pampered and I didn’t have a care in the world cause they had my back and made everything so easy. My hair and makeup looked amazing in all my photos and it was quite surprising how a professionally made up face, a simple but elegant do hair and a big dose of happiness could make all my photos sparkle! I don’t think I will ever look more stunning than I did that day and I cant even come close to expressing how much of that had to do with Belle’s and Brides. They were the most reliable people I had dealt with during all the wedding planning and I recommend them to EVERYONE! Don’t bother looking anywhere else, Belle’s and Brides are the ones you need

The team at Belles and Brides are absolutely amazing. I received a very quick response to my initial inquiry and the communication from then didn’t stop. Each and every person that I dealt with from the team were friendly, down to earth and happy to answer any questions along the way. On the day, the ladies did an incredible job of the hair and makeup of my 3 bridesmaids an I, we couldn’t have been happier with the result! Thanks so much to the Belles and Brides team!

I had a great experience with the girls from Belles and Brides for a previous occasion, so they were an easy choice for my bridal party hair and makeup. They were so easy to work with, flexible and patient with me in all the decisions. I absolutely loved mine and the bridesmaids looks and I was so impressed that both the hair and makeup lasted all day (even after we hiked up a cliff for wedding photos)! They are a lovely team who won’t stop until they have created your perfect look that you are 100% happy with. Thank you very much Belles and Brides!

The Team at Belles & Brides were beyond exceptional! I received a quick response to my enquiry about availability for our big day and from there on the communication didn’t stop. They kept in regular contact with me until the big day! The ladies on the day where amazing with the hair & make up! I couldn’t have been anymore happier! I also used their Spray Tanning service which I had many compliments on, I’ll defanitly be going back for one of those!
It was awesome to have more than one service offered by the same team, it certainly made things easier for me! I’m so grateful to have the Belles & Brides Team a part of our big day and would highly recommend to anyone getting married soon!

My absolute favourite vendor! Could not be happier with the service I received! Excellent communication right from when I booked until my wedding day! The girls were very lovely! Very friendly and relatable. Couldn’t speak more highly of Belles and Brides, I have referred my best friend who has booked for her March wedding. Thank you so much for everything!
Wedding Date: June 2, 2018
Sophie and the girls were amazing in so many ways. My March wedding was an absolute dream come true and I felt like the belle of the ball thanks to their hair and make-up magic. I had arranged a hair and make-up package for my Bridal party of 5 and a week before the wedding I had to add one more person. Sophie was able to rearrange timings to make this happen and saved the day (unbeknown to my mother-in-law). Sophie maintained great communication in the lead up to the wedding, asking how my plans were going and she was always open to ideas and providing feedback. On the day the girls were very professional and worked wonders to make sure we were all happy with our looks. The memories, and photos will have pride of place on my walls and in my heart, Thank you girls.

These ladies were awesome. Hands down the best customer service I have had. Warm and friendly from the get go, no one was ever pushy, which was so nice in amongst the stresses of planning a wedding.
Sophie did an amazing job with my hair with just a few photos from Pinterest. It was exactly what I had pictured and I wouldn’t change a thing. Not only that, she styled 3 other girls all with different hairstyles and they were spot on.
My make up was beautiful as well. Nari listened to any feedback I had and created a look that suited me to a tee. She did a perfect job on four other girls and both her and Sophie made the whole process really easy!
I would absolutely recommend Belles & Brides. They have the highest level of professionalism and I can’t thank them enough!

We had an absolute blast on the day, they were cool, calm and collected and made the morning a fun wee experience for my whole bridal party. Thanks again ladies for being a part of a truly memorable day! Xox

Belles and Brides were amazing to work with. All the girls were so friendly and helpful. On my wedding day both girls I had for hair and makeup were friendly, chatty and happy, this made myself and the brides maids feel relaxed. Both hair and makeup looked stunning and suited all our individual personalities. Our makeup and hair lasted beautifully all night and my hair even looked pretty good the next day when I left it in! I would recommend Belles & Brides to anyone they were fabulous to work with all round.

We used Belles and Brides for our wedding earlier this month and I honestly couldn’t be happier. The ladies were fantastic! So organized, professional, affordable and so very talented. I defiantly recommend using these ladies.
10/10 from me. xx

I could not thank the Belles & Brides team enough for how myself and my bridesmaids looked and felt on the day! Everyone looked stunning, and felt amazing. Our hair and make up artists were excellent, they were calm, efficient stress free and very skilled. What I loved most about the whole team was that nothing was too much to ask, they really tailored my day to exactly how I wanted it. From travelling to us both for my trial and the day, too payment plans. I also really loved how they made the effort to keep in touch with me to ensure everything was running to plan. This team is really professional, and you will not be let down and I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone!

These ladies were absolutely amazing on my wedding day. We had myself, 4 bridesmaids, a groomsmaid, mother in law and sister in law get hair and makeup done and they did such a great job. We all felt beautiful, they were fast and fun and nothing was too much trouble. The makeup and hair was perfect all night, I would use them again in a heartbeat.

I was lucky enough to have Levarna and Sophie do hair and makeup for me and my bridesmaids for my wedding. I honestly can’t recommend them highly enough. I felt gorgeous!! From the trial to the big day and after, they have been so easy to deal with, their talent is exceptional, it is so convenient that they came to us and it was just a great experience.
I had three bridesmaid with very different skin tones, hair types and ages, the youngest being my 15 year old daughter. Levarna was able to make each of us look flawless and beautiful while still making sure my daughter still looked like a 15 year old, not a 30 year old. Just to be difficult, I had different hairstyles for everyone which Sophie executed perfectly. It was a fun and relaxing morning getting ready with lots of laughs. I can not thank you ladies enough!!
Wedding Date: May 13, 2017
I had Belles and Brides recommended to me by a friend and bridesmaid who had used Levarna and her team for her own wedding. She highly recommended them so they were a natural choice for me.
My four bridesmaids, flowergirl, my mum and I all looked absolutely stunning. Our make-up was flawless as was our hair.
What is even better is that the hair and make-up still looked awesome by the end of the night despite the hugs and kisses, dancing and emotional speeches.
I also used Belles and Brides prior to the big day for our spray tans and nails…the tans all looked so good - the right shade for all of our skin tones and no patches or running of the tan at all. Our nails also looked awesome and mine lasted much longer than expected, they still looked perfect 2weeks after the wedding!
On top of the hair, makeup, tans and nails all being amazing, Belles and Brides are really great to deal with. They made the whole process so easy and stress free, were always happy to help, to answer any questions and to offer their professional advice.
I really did have total piece of mind after my trial and leading up to the big day knowing that I was in such good hands and that this was one vendor that I could absolutely rely on.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Belles & Brides to anyone.

Levarna and her team came highly recommended to me by a friend and I was so happy they were available for my wedding!
My four bridesmaids and I all looked absolutely stunning with flawless make-up and not a hair out of place. Even more the make-up and hair lasted ALL night….. even after lots of emotional speeches and dancing! We all received so many compliments on how great we looked!!
On top of the hair and makeup being amazing, Levarna and her team are great to deal with, offer valuable advice and 100% reliable. I had total piece of mind after my trial knowing I was in good hands.
Levarna is a true professional and has such a passion for her work. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Belles & Brides - absolute perfection!

Choosing a makeup and hair stylist is so important to help you look gorgeous and feel confident when you know all eyes will be on you. For someone who knows nothing about makeup, I had a good friend recommend Belles & Brides to me. (Since she was super knowledgable with makeup and looked like an absolute babe on her wedding, I trusted her). And boy was I lucky!
From the open and friendly communication to genuine compliments and advice, the team at Belles & Brides made me feel so comfortable with the whole unfamiliar process. They were so flexible with the timing and location of my trial and travelled cities to be with me on the big day. Most of all, the look they created was absolutely beautiful and blew my groom away. Guests couldn’t stop commenting all day and the look in the photos was unbelievable.
If you want a stress free, dream team who will make you look your absolute best, Belles & Brides are the perfect fit.
