The location of this weeks Wedding Reporter took us to Melanie Giles in Frome, Somerset, where we were scheduled to meet the fabulous Lisa Coleman.
We had the most fantastic time, Lisa had arranged to meet with us, as well as organising for the most beautiful model, Josie, to join us for the ultimate pamper session. We just couldn’t wait to sit down and have a catch up with Lisa and find out more about the business.
Lisa Caldognetto Makeup’s focus is on making you look and feel your best for all occasions and most importantly, feeling like YOU, on your wedding day. Lisa has such a calming, friendly and relaxed personality that you just know in an instant she is popular with all of her brides and clients. A real people person!
We wanted to find out from Lisa just how she found herself working in the wedding industry:
[Lisa]: “I have worked in the makeup industry for 12 years, for big brands including MAC, on many red-carpet events and I still now, continue to work at London Fashion Week. I wanted to focus on working with more Brides and other beauty and commercial makeup work.
I have a creative background (It must be the Italian blood!) and a true passion for fashion and I believe makeup is a tool and accessory that allows you to express yourself and make you feel at your best.”
When working with her brides, Lisa loves to build a relationship so she can work on creating that individual look and works with them collaboratively to create something they love. So, when you look in the mirror you will see the absolute best version of yourself.
It sounds so dreamy right? We just couldn’t wait to get started with Josie our model and let Lisa loose with her incredible skills.
Whilst we had been chatting, Nicole, who is one of the many talented bridal hair stylists at Melanie Giles, had created the perfect hair style to compliment Lisa’s work. The team at Melanie Giles not only have the most stunning salon in Frome but also two others, in Bath and Bradford-on-Avon and are renowned for their expert bridal hair.
Why is it so important for a bride to find the perfect makeup artist and what exactly should they be looking for?
