Welcome to Celfie
Welcome to our Hair and Makeup team.
From the moment our email lands in your inbox we hope you can feel a warm and at ease radiance from us here at Celfie.
Gemma and her team are passionate about creating your perfect Makeup and Hair look, but we also know how important it is to feel comfortable with your professional at the time of your Trial appointment & on your Wedding day.
When Gemma built her team she focused on finding like minded souls who were not just perfectionist at Makeup or Hair but also a stylist that had the ability to connect with our brides and client’s as individuals.
Building our Pro artistry team based on this was not easy but Gemma can not be prouder of the team and the recognition behind Celfie.
Célfie has been established since 2013, before dedicating to Bridal Hair and Makeup we traded as a Freelance Hair business. Creating hair styles and colours at homes in the Wiltshire Region.
Gemma (owner of CELFIE) fell in love with Wedding mornings as soon as she landed her first bridal hair booking in 2015. Not long after this she knew Bridal was what she was passionate about so in September 2016 Gemma completed a foundation in fashion Makeup Course at DFMA acadamy in Bournemouth.
This was when Celfie really grew into its own.
Weddings were in full swing shortly after qualifying as a Makeup artist.
Gemma then decided to grow Celfie at the start of 2019 where she met the incredible Charlotte. Who has been a credit to Celfie.
Charlotte adores Bridal and is a very talented Hair and Makeup artist.
Lockdown put us on hold for a while in 2020 but our enquiries came in thick and fast once this had been lifted. 2021 has been our biggest year to date!
Leaving Gemma needing to expand her team even more.

Hey I’m Katie.
I first trained to be a makeup artist back in 2012, at the City of Bristol College where I did the Level 3 Theatrical & Media Makeup course. It’s here where I found my love for bridal makeup and well all things wedding really!
I am makeup, skincare and wedding obsessed. My makeup style is for the Modern Bride. Flawless, natural and soft glam are my thing and I just love making my brides feel incredible on their special days. I always say there is nothing better than when a bride looks in the mirror after her vision comes to life. The smile says a thousand words alone and I am always honoured to be chosen as part of your day.
