Amanda Thorell, Natural bridal makeup specialist in London and Surrey.

ATA is a contemporary and fashion forward agency for the modern bride. We pride ourselves in creating natural and "of the time" hair and makeup styles that are effortless and flawless. 

 

Welcome to my little corner of the internet, I am so glad you have found your way here and wanting to find out a little bit more about me.  Being born and raised in Sweden my signature looks are Nordic inspired with radiant, fresh faced skin with your natural beauty in focus.  I got married in 2023 and I know how important it is to feel like  the very best version of yourself and for the makeup to last all through the day and night. 

 

Country bumkin by birth but a city  girl for the last 17 years. I love London and all it has to offer and I  am currently living in south London with my husband and our son Caspian.  With over 15 years in the industry make up and hair is not only my job but my biggest interest and a major part of who I am.

I have always loved expressing myself creatively and working with my hands and when not in the "office" you will find me in the kitchen cooking up a storm. I been a vegan for the last 10 years so there is a lot of experimental cooking in our household. In the off season you will find me at gym, or in a good pub enjoying a glass of wine with friends. Life is all about balance, am I right? 
Being a make up artist you have to have great eye for detail and  attention for what's in season.
Make up and hair trends are ever changing and you never stop learning and evolving as an artist.

 

I  studied fashion and beauty makeup at Delamar Academy, London’s top makeup school. Some of my career highlights include an advertising campaign with Team GB (Olympics), being the head makeup artist for a Eurostar campaign (in Paris and Amsterdam) and a publication in Marie Claire, as well as the honor of working with numerous brides on their wedding day.
 

I take great pride in my profession and always push myself to deliver the highest standard in all aspects of my job.
Making people feel beautiful and confident in their own skin is truly one of the greatest joys of my profession and being a part of someone's  wedding day is such an honor and a very special moment.  I am one of  those lucky few who absolutely love going to work and a wedding morning is such a joyous occasion.  Armed with makeup brushes and a strong coffee for those early mornings I will bring my expert skillset and a lot of laughter. 

If you think  I am your gal please don't hesitate to get in contact.

Amanda was absolutely fantastic! We could not have asked for a better hair and makeup artist for the wedding day. She was so accommodating with last minute changes I had and she understood exactly what type of look I wanted to go for. Also, the bridesmaids, as well my mother were very happy with Amanda and her team. Amanda is so sweet and bubbly which made the entire experience even more enjoyable.
