Bumblebee Bridal Specialises in Bridal & Special Occasion Hair & Make-up in Essex & surrounding areas

My Name is Michelle Lacey and I am a multi award winning hair and makeup artist, trainer and confidence coach. My passion is to help women feel beautiful and confident inside and out.

Michelle is fantastic. She gave me the confidence to shine on the day of my wedding I was a bit, to say the least, unconfident and photo shy but that all disappeared at the trial and on the day I loved being in the photos and felt beautiful.

For over 10 years I have helped women look and feel their most beautiful and confident on their wedding days. Not changing who they are but enhancing what is already there.

I am probably best known for my natural glowy makeup styles with defined eyes and soft artistic boho hairstyles. I love hairstyles that look beautiful from every angle, with intricate braids that intertwine making the hair look like a work of art. Makeup I use to help enhance a woman’s favourite features, ensuring she looks and feels the very best version of herself.

I truly believe we are all beautiful and unique in our own special way and we shouldn’t be changing the way we look but instead embracing our individuality and loving our unique quirks because they are what make us all beautiful.

Clothes are not one size fits all and hair and makeup shouldn’t be either. At Bumblebee Bridal we discover your style together ensuring that you look but most importantly feel the most beautiful version of yourself. Brides don’t just say they looked like a Princess on their wedding day, they thank me for helping them FEEL like a Princess and that feeling continues on past their special day too.


I provide Bridal Hairstyling and Bridal Makeup Artistry for Weddings. Makeup lessons aimed at giving you confidence in applying your makeup and feeling more confident in your appearance. Confidence coaching for women who have lost confidence in the way they look or feel about themselves. As well as bridal hairstyling courses and makeup courses for beginners and professionals.

Cannot recommend Michelle enough! She is the most helpful lovely person you could wish for! She put everyone at ease with her friendly, professional manner -she didn’t just stop at hair, she gave us invaluable venue tips and wedding advice, helped my bridesmaids get me into my dress and literally did everything you could wish for to help everything run smoothly. My hair looked absolutely incredible and received compliments all day - and it still looked perfect at the end of the night! Thank you so much xxx
