Neill Menneer
CEO & Chief Photographer
I have been a photographer all my life. After completing my degree in photography at Guildford (with a distinction!!) I won the Observer Photographic award and this gave me the confidence to go freelance. I subsequently worked regularly in London for some of the UK’s top magazines including Harpers and Queen and all the colour supplements. Jo and I came to Bath in 1987 but it was not until 2007 that we moved into our present studio. Since then we have won many business/Photographic awards (Bath Life, SWPP and Click Corporation) and hope that this reflects our dedication to customer service and the quality of our work. We have created the perfect photographic environment in The Old Methodist Church and have furnished three separate but distinct studios, two of which are dedicated solely to Boudoir. I still have a genuine passion for photography and love nothing more than creating art works of women, using all my knowledge of lighting and the human form. I strive for elegance and beauty in all that I do.
Jo Menneer
Marketing Director & Make-Up Artist
Divine Divas is very close to my heart. I have seen what a positive effect it has on women who come to us when their confidence is low. Sometimes I meet women years later and they tell me how it has made such a big difference. I am the main hair & make-up artist: I love this part. Quite often women have never seen themselves looking so gorgeous before. I also do a lot of the viewings, I get very excited about doing the big reveal when clients see their images for the first time. The amount of times I have heard ‘I can’t believe it’s me!’ I have also done a few of my own boudoir shoots and feel really chuffed at how I look in the photos. When I’m not in the studio you will probably find me walking Jaspa our dog, I like to eat healthily so I try out recipes from Hemsley & Hemsley or Deliciously Ella having bought a big pile of veggies from our local greengrocers-but then curl up in front of a box set with a large glass of red and a bar of dark chocolate!
Jesse Loughborough
Photographer & Production Manager
I love collaborating with clients to create beautiful images that make people happy and feel great about themselves. As a father of twins I understand that life can sometimes pass you by if you're not careful and it is so important to make time for and embrace all your roles in life. In fact one of the things I love most about my job is seeing the positive impact we can sometimes have on women's lives when they allow us to remind them that there's more to them than just their job/kids/responsibilities. I have been with the company since 2002 and in my dual role as photographer and production manager I’m in the lucky position of working with people’s photos from shutter release to product completion. When I'm not at the studio I try my best to be a good father to the twins and husband to my wife. I still manage to enjoy photography as a hobby and my wife and I also play softball in Bristol during the summer months.
Emilie Giotti
Photographer & Assistant Studio Manage
I have two roles at Divine Divas as a photographer and on the customer service side, doing bookings and viewings. Working here, there is never a dull moment as the studio is always filled with laughter. I love being able to give women the confidence boost they deserve as so many are in need, from mums to newly single or just wanting to fall back in love yourself. You may get to hear my voice on the end of the phone, I’ll try and answer all your questions and help put you at ease. My passion is photography and to be able to shoot in one of the South West’s premier studio is an honour. It’s so important to me you have at least one image of yourself you can be proud of, leave your stamp on the world! In my spare time I do my own creative portraiture photography and always sourcing new ideas and interesting props.
Harriet Gallon
Makeup Artist
I am a fully qualified hair and makeup artist and have been doing this for over 5 years. Every day at the studio I get to meet women who are often lacking in confidence and have lost that feeling of self-love. As a hair and makeup artist I love nothing more than bringing out that confidence by showing them a sexy and glamourous side, which can come as a surprise to a lot of women who aren’t used to seeing themselves in that way. Outside of work at the studio I get the chance to pamper brides on their special days as well as surround myself with my makeup kit and experiment with new exciting products and makeup styles. I like to spend my down time relaxing with my friends, either at a funky bar in Bath or at home with a good movie and a big glass of wine
Jaspa
The Studio Dog
I am 3 years old and love to have my belly tickled. When you arrive at the studio the grown-ups usually keep me away from you, which I find very frustrating. I have been rechristened Ninja dog as I have a really great ability to sneak past and jump on you on the sofa. So if you like to tickle tummies please make sure you stop them taking me away from you.

    I find it difficult to put into words how special my Boudoir photo shoot was yesterday with Divine Divas. I felt terrified going in and anxious what to expect feeling very body conscious, I needn't have worried as was made to feel at ease straight away. Jo who did my hair and make up and my photographer Emilie I cannot praise highly enough and they were able to bring the best out of me showing off the features I try to hide making me realise I am beautiful. Such a powerful experience and I'm bursting with excitement to view my images next week. My advice is to any lady you should do this for yourself to be made to feel the beautiful people we all are. Highly recommend this experience.

  • Wow, what a great experience. I was really nervous but there was no need to be. From having my hair and make up done by Harriet who made me look a million dollars. Then to go into the studio with Jess, who really did put all my worries to one side. It was fun and so professional. The hardest part was going back and choosing which photos to keep. I must thank my friend for giving me the push to do it and Divine Divas for a most enjoyable experience. So pick up the phone and book a photo shoot and get yourself a forever memory of a fabulous experience

    Had my viewing today & absolutely thrilled with my images!! After being diagnosed with early menopause a few years ago, my body confidence & mental health took a big knock & i am only really niw beginning to feel like myself again. Doing this shoot has helped with that enormously! Huge thank you to the entire team for making me feel comfortable, relaxed, glamorous & confident in my own skin.

    These guys are just fantastic, I reeeeeally was not looking forward to the shoot as I don't like having my picture taken at all. Harriet and Neil were both great, put me at ease and worked their magic. I have the best pics I've ever seen of myself. They are a super talented, professional and fun team.

    A fabulous way to spend a Saturday morning, despite my nerves and my lack of body confidence. I was put totally at ease by Jo and Neill, and made to feel very comfortable in front of the camera, and completely pampered too with full hair and make-up and a glass of bubbles to help calm the nerves. I am very excited for my viewing, probably more so because I can’t wait to see my other half’s reaction to the photos. I only worry that I will want them all!! Thank you Devine Divas, I can’t recommend you enough!

    I never thought I could do something like this.. What ever your size,shape or looks.. they make you feel beautiful, not only from the outside but more importantly from the inside.. I would say go for it, wether it’s for someone else or yourself .. why shouldn’t you feel special and beautiful .. I just felt wonderful ..
