I am a diploma qualified makeup artist and hairstylist with over 5 years wedding experience. With over a hundred weddings under my belt, I have learnt to work with my brides to offer a personalised service that suits their needs and brings out their best, without masking or overshadowing their natural beauty. I work closely with my brides to tailor a look that suits their skin type, and their personal style. As I own and operate my business you know when you book Ellen Munro, that is who you will receive on the day.
Offering hand-brushed traditional and airbrush makeup services, I can achieve anything from a natural look to heavy glamour. I work with all skin types and mix and blend products to create custom formulations suitable for all skin tones. Having worked with a number of hair types means I can create the perfect up do or down style to complete your look. Being a curly girl myself I especially enjoy working with natural curls, but am also confident working with wavy, straight, thin, and thick hair. Check out my previous work or get in touch to see how we can work together to achieve your dream look.
When I’m not helping people feel beautiful, My husband Chris and I spend our time trying to keep two small humans alive. Our daughter, Abigail, and son, Elias. We also have two giant furbabies, Jack and Martha. They’re Great Danes who think they’re chihuahas. Be warned, I do come equipped with a phone full of photos, and I have been known to use it!
Growing up I was a drama queen, in every sense of the word. I pursued makeup as a way to enter the theatre world, having a strong interest in stage makeup and wig making. However, not long after completing my diploma I had my first bridal client, and that was that. I discovered I loved bridal work more than I could have anticipated. There’s no better way to spend a Saturday than with a group of ladies as the excitedly prep for the they’ve spent months, or years, planning. If there happens to be a terrible 90’s playlist, than so be it!
