Emma Culbert Make Up Artist

Emma Culbert specialises in Bridal Make Up, offering a premium wedding service and is currently one of the highest regarded freelance make up artists in the North West UK.
Based in Didsbury, Manchester Make Up Artist Emma Culbert covers the North West, Cheshire, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside, West Yorkshire and North Wales.
She is also available for national and international travel for destination weddings and works closely with a team of well established wedding industry professionals.

Along with being my partner, I also work closely with Stephen McGowan. Stephen's unique photography style sets him apart from other photographers in the North West. Stephen likes to combine documentary style wedding photography with a modern creative twist. Working quietly in the background on your wedding day, you would never know he's there - documenting every little detail and memory on your day.

I've worked alongside Stephen on many occasions - mainly for weddings and bridal shoots and would highly recommend him for your wedding.


We can combine our packages (MUA + Photography) to suit your requirements
