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.

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!!

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.

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.

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.

Levarna and Sophie were so much fun to work with and their hair and make-up was stunning - they really did make us feel like princesses. Their relaxed, fun and professional manner made for a really enjoyable morning. We couldn’t have asked for a better team to work with. Thank you ladies.

Levarna and Sophie did my makeup and hair for my wedding this weekend and I was blown away.
The ladies came to me and were friendly, fully equipped and well organised. They listened to my concept, were very helpful with their advice and kept me calm. The ladies were professional but in a relaxed manner throughout the process.
I came out looking amazing and received so many compliments on the day and it all stayed in place perfectly. Very very highly recommended.

Levarna and Sophie from Belles and Brides did the hair and make-up for my daughter’s wedding, along with her 4 bridesmaids and myself (mother of the bride!). I was absolutely thrilled with how every single one of us looked for the ceremony .... and well into the night after hours of dancing.. Levarna is so lovely, very friendly and happy and what great knowledge she has when it comes to make-up and creating the look that you want. She is the perfect person to have around on a wedding day as she has such a calm aura about her and puts everyone at ease. We never felt rushed at any stage and she was very accommodating when she had to work around the photographer and videographer. I can not recommend Belles and Brides more highly, they are stars!

Levarna, you and your team are such beautiful and amazing person. Thank you so much for being apart of our special day. You made myself and my bridesmaids look absolutely stunning. The makeup was on point and so professional. My Mum couldn’t believe how much you made my sisters eyes pop from the eyeshadow.
You truly are a talented makeup artist and you should be proud of yourself Levarna. Highly recommend!!!!!

Levarna and the team did an amazing job for my wedding earlier this year. From start to finish they were prompt, friendly and efficient. They created an outstanding look for my three bridesmaids, my mother and myself. They made us feel comfortable and ensured we started the day on a high. I would highly recommend Belles & Brides for any special occasion.

I was Bridesmaid at my sister’s wedding and because we are old ladies I had no idea about what to do with my hair and I had never had my face made up before. Levarna made us feel at ease immediately and when she and her hairdresser had finished I felt absolutely beautiful and so did my sister. Levarna’s expertise with knowing what colour to use and what make up to use is wonderful, she does it with ease and a finesse of the expert that she and her team are. I would always recommend Levarna to anyone with full confidence knowing they would be very happy with the outcome.

I was lucky enough to win my hair and make up done for free by the ladies at Belles and Brides back in April 2015. This turned out to be more than just winning a prize. I won self confidence, I won the most beautiful face I have ever seen in the mirror, I won the coolest hair that I spent hours Googling and was whipped up without a batter of an eye, I wont the loveliest ladies to deal with, I won a stress free experience. There is not a single thing I would change with how it all turned out on the day and also how easy they were to deal with in the pre wedding stresses. I cant thank Belles and Brides enough for not only giving me such an amazing prize but executing it with the highest quality and love. -Amber

What an experience it was having Belles & Brides do my make up for my cousins wedding.
Levarna bounced through the door early morning and it was so obvious that we were in great hands. I was the palest bridesmaid (I didn’t want to fake tan because it never looks right on my skin) but Levarna matched me perfectly - actually mixing some white foundation into her palest shade! She had such a calmness about her which really rubbed off on the entire bridal party, there was no stress which meant a really relaxed and happy bride - that’s what everyone wants! Levarna made me feel absolutely beautiful but more importantly she made me feel so comfortable. She invited me to discuss my makeup preferences and used them as her guideline. It would be easy for an artist to do a beautiful yet standard application of makeup but when you have someone that listens to you and takes note of what you like that’s a real dream - after all makeup is a personal thing and while you almost want to appear airbrushed you don’t want to loose yourself under the products. The bridal party got so many compliments throughout the day because of Levarna’s skill - complete strangers felt the need to tell me how stunning my makeup and hair was (Belles & Brides did our hair too and it was simply gorgeous). If I could relive that day again I would (it was the best hair & makeup experience I’ve ever had). I’d honestly recommend Levarna in a heartbeat. My next NZ trip out (I live in London) I shall be finding an excuse to get my makeup professionally done again by Belles and brides! You guys rock!!
