Professional Bridal Makeup, Hair and Beauty Specialists, direct to your home or chosen venue.
My name is Antonia and I am the founder and face behind Icon Brides and Icon Pro Creatives. As a makeup artist, married women, wife and mum, I fully understand the Trauma of organising your wedding not to mention trying to please everyone and often the “Very precious you” can be put to one side. So I set up Icon Brides to offer “brides to be” that special relaxing, pampering experience and celebrity treatment that she truly and definitely deserves.
I have always had a passion for the beauty industry and previously worked as an independent beauty consultant for Virgin Vie and now currently as a Makeup Artist for Estee Lauder. I hold specialised training certificates in skincare and makeup application for both cosmetic houses as well as a VTCT in makeup artistry including fashion, photographic and theatre. My most recent accolade is as a makeup artist for the Art Deco Couture Team for ITV’s Dancing on Ice and Head of Creative Makeup Design for Liverpool Fashion Week 09, working on many national and international celebrities and model faces within the television, film and music industries.
I now have a fantastic team of professional Artists. The team have a wealth of 20 years experience between them and are highly sought after in their relevant fields. Within the team I have artists who have been assigned to London Fashion Week, Liverpool Fashion Week, Now, Hello and OK magazines, BBC and ITV television productions and MTV to name but a few.
Antonia from Icon Brides brought such a personal touch to our special day. She totally understood the needs of all ages regarding make up, from age 16 to 63. This meant myself, the bride, my mother, my now mother in law and my four bridesmaids all felt beautiful. The morning of our wedding was made so much more special because of Antonia’s calm and lovely personality alongside the confidence we all had in her ability to transform us.
Very warm and friendly and took you through the process from start to finish. I was so amazed at the quality and finish at my friends wedding I booked icon brides on the spot, I felt like a million dollars on my day thanks to Antonia! From the amazing products she used to the amazing look she created for me I couldn’t recommend her enough! My friend was so impressed at my wedding she has booked her for her own wedding next year! Fantastic lady, amazing company can’t say enough good things :) xx
