"Alev is the best makeup artist for your wedding, she never stamps you with a "bridal look" but spends time figuring out what will actually suit you"











Looking for Natural wedding hair and makeup? You've come to the right place.

Hey I’m Alev (pronounced like Alex but with a V) a hair and makeup artist with a passion for natural wedding hair and makeup for modern brides. Based just outside London in Hertfordshire, I travel all over the UK for my brides.


Bridal is not one colour, race or gender or size. The goal for my space is to be fully inclusive for all humans. NO EXCEPTIONS!


The name “Flaming Bride” came about from my love of being a bit different, never really fitting in and always challenging the beauty standards set for women. I can’t stand to see the same old “bridal images over and over again, so I felt some fire, or more of a flame thrower was needed. Alev is a Turkish name which translates to "flame" (thanks mum and dad) so with that, Flaming Bride was born!

I will create a you look that sings of your own personality and style and if you're not sure what that is, helping you find it will be my goal. You don’t have to have a strong style to know what you like and know when you feel your best.


I love working with curly and textured hair brides and grooms. If you are a curly haired person hating the thought of giving up your curls on your wedding day then look no further. You can have naturally curly bridal hair. 

I’d describe my wedding hair and makeup style as “glossy editorial with an edge.”


No matter how big (or small) your wedding party, I will make sure everything runs smoothly so you can spend your time getting ready, relaxing and vibing with your friends and family (and me!)
