Your face and hair will probably be the most photographed part of your wedding day so it’s essential you love the way you look. This makes a professional make-up service more than just a pampering treat, it’s a beauty must-have.
You’ve put so much into making this wedding perfect, don’t be let down by less than lovely make-up. Forget orange skin and spangly eyes, clogged lashes and dripping lip gloss, our service is about a unique-to-you look, put together by cherry picking the best from modern brands.
With well over a thousand weddings to our name we are determined to offer something completely different to the average. Your wedding day is too important for average, your face too essential for an overdone look by someone who is a beautician or a hairdresser. What you need is a dedicated, highly experienced and recommended make-up artist who doesn’t sell you anything. If you would like to look like a perfected version of yourself then your search for a wedding make-up artist is over!
Please use the Contact Me page to check our availability and we’ll come straight back to you, letting you know either way, of course. We’ll send a letter detailing all relevant costs, how to progress your enquiry into a booking and how and when to reserve your make-up rehearsal. This rehearsal can take place asap or latest 6-8 weeks before the big day at our lovely Make-up Studio above Madeline House, High Street, Bishops Waltham, SO32 1AA
During this session there’s a detailed consultation where we like to find out about you, how you would like to look for the wedding day and what level of make-up you are used to wearing. We’ll then translate that look into our famous brand products so that you still look like you (but on a really good day!). Our aim is not to make you look dramatically different, but to maximise eyes, lips and cheekbones and minimise the bits you’re probably not so keen on like uneven skin, dark under eyes and inevitable wedding day blemishes.
We can also talk about enhancing your eyes with eyelash extensions and eyebrow shaping (services we offer) plus possibly how to improve your skincare and top tips and tricks-of-the trade to keep you looking lovely all day and into the evening.
Why not share this rehearsal opportunity with other members of your bridal party who would like wedding day make-up? We can either talk them through the gentle tones we’d use with them on the day or if they prefer, they can have a rehearsal make-up of their own.
No deposit is required till the rehearsal when you confirm that you love the make-up and want us back for the big day. We know that’s unusual but we’re confident you will approve the make up at the rehearsal and want us back. Then on to your wedding day we return to you at either your home or hotel so that you can relax knowing you don’t have to go outside to a salon in the unreliable British weather! We would strongly recommend you have a hairdressing service at your home or hotel too and we’d be very happy to help you with a recommendation, we know some very talented stylists and the two of us working together will create an oasis of peace and calm, keeping your timings on track and making for some great photos too. The make-up you loved at the rehearsal is repeated, giving you fresh- faced beauty with a hint of modern glamour and you’ll feel self-assured in front of the photographer’s unforgiving lens and confident enough to face those guests, knowing you are gorgeous but still looking like you.
‘Having received the official photograph proofs from my wedding, I just had to write to thank you for the amazing work you did with mine and my entourage’s makeup. I couldn’t be happier with how you managed to made me look, exactly as you promised, natural and making the best of my features, but what was most impressive is that the evening photos show me with the same face – all make-up intact, now that’s amazing! I’ll be recommending you to anyone who’ll listen and searching for another reason to do it all again in the future!’ (I’m hoping she doesn’t mean her next wedding! Helen)
‘I’d like to say a huge thank you for helping me feel like a million dollars for my wedding day, I honestly had no idea I could feel so fabulous. I admit I was a little worried that the makeup would wear off as the day work on but I still felt equally gorgeous when we left the reception your advice (about how to make the make-up last all day, Helen) was brilliant. So many people commented on how beautiful and happy I looked and I feel like I owe a great deal of that to your skill, I felt radiant and it obviously showed. I shall definitely be recommending you!

‘Thank you for doing my make-up I was so pleased with it and I looked so natural, my eye make-up in particular was amazing! So many people commented on how good it was (mostly the women!) and it really did last all day!’
