perth hair and makeup artist

Let me introduce you to Melissa of Birdsnest Bridal. Hair, Makeup & Adornments! Most of us can only do one thing amazingly well – but Melissa does three! Not only is she a fantastic makeup artist, she’s got a dab hand for wedding hair and then to literally top it all of she makes the most gorgeous hairpieces and accessories to complete your look!

She’s based in Western Australia but is launching an online store soon so brides and bridesmaids all over the country can wear a little Birdsnest Bridal on their wedding day!

We asked Melissa from Birdsnest Bridal. Hair, Makeup & Adornments five questions in five minutes –

My favourite after 5 drink?

A pot of tea or a champagne cocktail.

My favourite weekend getaway?

It’s been so long I can’t even remember!!!! We have two little ones and I work most weekends. What I dream of is a night away with hubby where we can get dressed up, get my hair and makeup done and find a little hidden tapas wine bar, and then a sleep in would be a dream.

Favourite restaurant?

Again it’s been a long time since getting to experience fine dining but I love a degustation menu with the matching wines, one of the best we’ve ever had was at Fraser’s Kings Park in Perth.

Breakfast on a Sunday morning?

At the moment it’s pretty similar to the other 6 days of the week, but I would love to start a family tradition of a big cook up. I dream that when the kids grow up and have partners of their own that they may make it back around our kitchen table once a week.

My favourite wedding story?

Would have to be my own:) Getting to marry the kindest, sweetest man, and watch him become and unbelievable father to our children Genevieve and Nate.
