Your wedding day will be one, if not the, most special day of your life. It’s so important to find a makeup artist who will make you both look and feel absolutely beautiful.
I have over six years experience in the makeup industry and global recognition for my work. I am Highly Commended Best Wedding Beauty Supplier of the Year in the Bridebook Wedding Awards 2017 out of 70,000 suppliers, and I have just won the LUX Wedding Awards 2017 as the Best Bridal Hair and Makeup Salon in Barnsley. I will make sure to have you feeling the most beautiful and radiant that you have ever felt, and make your wedding makeover experience one you’ll want to re-live over and over again. Bespoke design of wedding makeup is something that’s important to me – makeup isn’t a one size fits all, so the key to creating the perfect bridal look is taking aspects of your personality and favourite features and letting them shine through in your tailor-made makeup design.
Bridal makeovers take place in our beautiful and private studio where refreshments will be provided throughout your visit.
When should I book my wedding makeup?
Wedding makeovers can book up years in advance so as soon as you’ve set your date, it’s a great idea to book!
What does the bridal makeup include?
Your bridal makeup includes a full consultation and bridal trial at our beautiful studio where you’ll be able to explore up to two different looks over a two hour session and tell me all about your special day! You’ll also be sent photographs of your chosen look. It also includes the makeup on your big day at our studio, along with lashes at both appointments too. Your wedding morning will be extra special in the studio with a sweet treat and bubbles for yourself and your bridal party to enjoy, and of course, fresh coffee and tea is always on hand too.
Do you do hair?
No – I offer makeup services only for bridal bookings.
Do you travel out for weddings?
I am primarily studio based but this is not set in stone. I like to provide my clients with a relaxing and enjoyable service and feel that working from the studio space allows me to do this. I often find that if I’m travelling out to a clients house or venue, they’re under pressure to clear a space for me, find a room with adequate lighting and also accommodate me whilst I’m with them. They’re also subjected to distractions which means that the makeup application can take much longer. Having my clients visit me means that they can leave any home worries or stresses at the door and be completely looked after from the moment they walk in within a safe, relaxing and completely private environment. It also means that I can spoil them to the full with bubbles and treats while they have their makeup applied.
However, if you have any special requirements or need me to visit your venue, I’m more than happy to discuss these with you and try to accommodate your request. I am prepared to travel across the UK and further afield for makeovers. Please note that accommodation and travel fees will apply in these circumstances, and an assistant will be required to attend your makeover with me for all mobile appointments which incurs an additional cost.
It’s extremely important to me that all of my bridal and bridal party clients have a positive experience that is both exciting and relaxing, but most importantly, will give you the peace of mind to know that you have made the right decision in your makeup artist, and that you feel confident enough to trust me with this special job on your big day.
It’s truly an honour to be asked to provide bridal makeup artistry and something I take on with extreme pride and care. Something that I can always promise each and every one of my bridal clients is that I will be professional, approachable and reliable throughout the whole of your wedding makeup experience.
Bridal Makeup Design appointments book extremely fast, often over a year in advance. Please do book your date early to avoid disappointment. A 50% non-returnable and non-refundable booking fee will be taken at the time of booking to secure your date.

What makeup brands do you use?
My makeup kit has been carefully selected throughout my career and contains high end skincare and makeup. I use a variety of brands such as Embryolisse, La Roche Posay, Graftobian, Illamasqua, L’Oreal, MAC, Make Up For Ever, Makeup Geek, Maybelline, NARS, NYX, Sigma and Zoeva.
How long will my makeup take?
Makeup takes around an hour to an hour and a half per person depending on the makeup look chosen.
When can I take my trial?
I recommend taking your trial no earlier than a month or two before your big day. This ensures that my kit is updated with any new season products, and usually, you’ll have a better idea of what you’d like closer to your special day.
Can I bring my friends to my trial?
As we do not have a specific waiting room, we do not allow spectators into the studio. Your trial is best experienced one-to-one with your makeup artist as it’s a time where you can fully relax, speak about your special day and help to create your perfect bridal makeup look. Friends can often unintentionally provide distractions and can also cloud your judgement on the makeover leading to the need for re-trials, so for this reason, they will not be able to attend your appointment with you.
Can I bring my child to my trial?
Our studio is not child friendly and we do not allow babies or children into the studio during makeup appointments. Please ensure to arrange childcare beforehand if required. If you have children within your bridal party that require a little gloss or blush on the day, please do speak with me beforehand so that I can allow time to give them a little pamper on the big day and have them feeling special too.
Can I have my trial at home?
I do not offer a home trial service. All trials are studio based where you will be looked after and pampered from the moment you walk through the door.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any further questions about your wedding day, I’m more than happy to chat through your requirements with you and help you to plan the perfect makeup for your special day.
