Bridal makeup that enhances your natural beauty

Beautiful bridal makeup inspired by the red carpet…

Your wedding day is one of the biggest days of your life. You will want to feel and look the best version of yourself and my bridal style is very much influenced from beautiful red carpet looks.  I create bespoke looks, tailored especially to each individual.  Reflecting your personality, enhancing your natural features and makeup that feels wearable is my overall aim. 

My personal style is to enhance, not mask.  I have a signature glowy base adored by my makeup clients and my focus is always to create beautiful timeless makeup.  I am there to make you feel beautiful but will also be there to advise you on skin prep before the wedding. 

Multi Award Winning Makeup Artist and Creative Beauty Director for British Muse magazine

Why choose me for your big day?

I take pride with attention to detail and my expertise led me to winning Bridal Makeup Specialist of the Year at The English Wedding Awards.  This award became my 14th industry award.  I am also the Creative Beauty Director for luxury glossy bridal magazine British Muse magazine.  In 2020, I was named in the Go Hen Top 50 bridal Makeup Artists in the whole of the UK.  As I work closely with big makeup and beauty brands, it means I have extensive beauty product knowledge so I can provide you with not only your makeup application but my experience of product matching correctly for each individual.  I also have some great relationships with other wedding industry suppliers who I have personally worked with so I am more than happy to help you with recommendations if you needed them.

Bridal Makeup


So why not indulge yourself and get your bridal make up applied professionally?  You can sit back and relax and enjoy the day as it unfolds.  It is the ultimate opportunity for treating and pampering yourself. 

As well as the more traditional weddings, I often receive unusual requests for alternative weddings and I am always up for the challenge.

Looking for a Makeup Artist to travel to your destination wedding?

Although I am based in the North East/North Yorkshire region of UK, I do travel for weddings both around the UK and for destination weddings. 

I am always ready with my passport and makeup case, just incase you want to whisk me away to your destination wedding.  I have been very privileged to have worked with many brides on their big day and I hope my testimonials will give you confidence of placing your trust in me to make you feel fabulous!

When do I need to book my bridal Makeup Artist?

You need to book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.  I will endeavour to accommodate where possible. Peak season (March to September) does book up quickly, as far as 18 months to 2 years in advance.

To secure your wedding date a 50% booking fee of your ‘on the day’ price is required and during peak season I have a minimum 3 person booking policy. 

If you are wanting to secure your date, I will send you a link to my Terms and Conditions for you to sign.  This also includes my payment details to forward your booking fee.  Upon receipt of both your signed agreement and booking fee, you will receive confirmation of your booking and payment.  Only at this point is your wedding date booked in to the diary.  I do not reserve dates or pencil dates in the diary without a deposit.

How to get the most from your bridal trial appointment

To get the most from consultation trial ideally you should be bring around 3 inspiration images to your appointment.  You should also consider your dress style, whether you will be having a fake tan or changing your hair colour.

I would suggest booking your bridal consultation 2-3 months before the wedding.  Upon booking your consultation I will send you some guidance on making the most of your appointment.  Consultations take place at my studio space just near Redcar, TS11.

Are you travelling abroad for your dream wedding?  Are you planning on applying your own makeup?  Book a makeup lesson

If you are not booking me for your destination wedding I do also offer makeup lessons for those who are getting married abroad and would like to learn how to do their own makeup.
