Queensland Bridal Wedding Expo

Recently we participated in the Queensland Brides wedding expo at the Brisbane Convention Centre.  We had our hair and makeup stand there for all the Brides of Brisbane to see.
We were pleased to supply hair and makeup services for Jordanna Reagan who had some beautiful dresses entered into the bridal gown awards.  For Jordanna's beautiful model, we did a beautiful bridal hairstyle and wedding airbrush makeup.
We met lots of lovely brides-to-be and thoroughly enjoyed hearing about all their wedding plans.

Choosing your Wedding hair style

Are you having trouble deciding on how you will have your wedding hair for your wedding day?

Whatever you decide to have you will need to think about your dress and how it will complement your hairstyle.  If you have a high neck dress it's best to have an upstyle.  If you want to cover some tattoos, then down is great.  With a strapless dress you can have your hair up or down.
It maybe nice to have your hair over to one side if you have one shoulder strap on your dress.

Of course, the best idea is to have a hair trial.  Before your trial you need to have some idea and have some photos of what you do and don't like and take them along with you.  If you are going to be wearing any accessories in your hair or a veil it's also a great idea to take them along to the hair trial too so you can see what they will look like when all together.

If your wedding has a vintage theme then a vintage hairstyle would be nice.

Stamford Plaza Wedding Showcase

Bella Brides were excited to be invited to the prestigious Stamford Plaza Hotel's Wedding Expo on the 28th July. Naturally, we accepted the invitation without hesitation. We have been to The Stamford Plaza on many occasions to weave our Bella Brides magic as we are a mobile, come-to-you business and we always love to visit. We have found that most brides these days are choosing to have airbrush makeup with their hairstyling.

We were one of only a select few (2 we think) hair and makeup suppliers chosen to attend. We met a number of brides-to-be on the day, some of who were considering holding their wedding at The Stamford Plaza.

We were able to watch the fashion parade and we were amazed by the wedding dresses and how beautiful the models looked.

You can find out more about us on our website

We must admit that we were a bit naughty and visited the Lolly Buffet more times than we should have! It was amazing.

As you can see I'm not a photographer

Braids for Brides

Braids for Brides

The ways to braids are many. The styles can be wild or organized, informal or ceremonial. Braids can adorn a shoulder like the latest in fashion. Be creative by including a braid to an existing hairstyle. Braids can also be worn to work in place of a bun or a ponytail.
Braids are a well-liked choice for wedding parties.  Many bridesmaids prefer braids to other styles.
The choice of Bridal hair for many Brides is half up and half down style waterfall.   The style is exquisite with curls just like Tahlia’s Bridal hair and makeup, which we did on her wedding day.

If you would like to donate then please visit the "gingerbread men" page at
Here are some before and after pictures of the lads, and some during!

Platinum Hair and makeup package

Why not have the team from Bella Brides there from when you need us till after your ceremony for any touch-ups you might need on your hair and makeup?

When you have you hair and makeup done for your wedding you want to look the best you can for as long as you can. Having it all finished 2 or 3 hours or more before the ceremony so that your photographer can get those all important pre-ceremony photos is all very nice but you’re sure to get emotional and smudge that oh so perfect makeup or the wind will be blowing and spoil that perfect hairstyle just before you set off to meet your husband-to-be.

We at Bella Brides have the perfect solution to allay these concerns – The Bella Brides Platinum Package.
With our Platinum Package you get the exclusive attention, on your wedding day, of our two most experienced artists from the time you need us to arrive to do your bridal party’s hair and makeup until just after the ceremony for any makeup touch-ups or hair fixing.
The Package offers this full, personal service for your wedding party (Bride, Bridesmaids, Mothers etc.) and 1 Flowergirl (7 years or under) and is priced according to the size of your wedding party (minimum 6 people).
Included in this Platinum Package service are the following:
* Hair styling and airbrush makeup for your wedding party.
* Exclusive service from Lucie, Michelle and Brittany.
* Travel to sites up to 100km from Brisbane CBD.
* Free trial for Bride and 1 Bridesmaid (or mum).
* Free hair treatment for the Bride a week before the wedding.
* Free eyelashes for the wedding party on the wedding day.
*Free headband or hair pins for the Bride.
*Free gift on your wedding day from Bella Brides.

Once you book and pay your deposit we will accept no further bookings for that day so you can be sure that we won’t be in a hurry to finish off to dash to another bride. We will be there for as long as you need us right up until after the ceremony so that you will still look your stunning best for the reception and all the post ceremony photographs The price for this package is dependant upon the number of people in your wedding party as follows: 
* 6 people - $2200
* 7 people - $2450
* 8 people - $2650
* 9 people - $2800

Of course we can still offer the package for more than 10 people. Give us a call on 0416 591 691 to discuss pricing. 

We are happy to talk to you about any special requests or if you have over 12 people, we can work out special packages for you and your friends. You could have a trial session with all your bridal party then go out on your hens' night or to the races. Let us know what you'd like and we will work out something special for you.Please note – we require 4 or more people for artists to travel to homes or hotels etc. Travel prices are dependent upon location and time. Travel fee starts from $50 for the Brisbane CBD.Deposit is non-refundable.
