Emma offers a professional make-up service, tailor made to suit your individual requirements to make sure you look and feel your most beautiful on your wedding day. As one of the most important days of your life and as the centre of attention, she fully understands how daunting this can be for brides-to-be and aims to take all of the stress and worry out of the day for you.

Emma's expertise lies in producing beautifully flawless, natural and radiant make-up which is both timeless and elegant. It is her belief that your chosen wedding make-up should ensure you look like yourself, just a prettier, more polished version.

Emma carries extensive kit and is continually testing new products to ensure the highest quality and performance so that your chosen wedding make-up will last all day. Brands include MAC, RCMA, Le Maq Pro, MUFE, Viseart, and consumer products including Illamasqua, Urban Decay and Benefit

Emma is known for her calm and friendly personality which is unobtrusive and will help to put you at ease. She will often go above and beyond to ensure that everything is perfect for you, including helping you into your dress if needs be. She also offers an optional make-up touch up service to stay behind after the ceremony and ensure you look flawless for your post ceremony photographs, if required. 

A trial consultation before the wedding is essential, held ideally 6-8 weeks before the wedding. During the trial she will gain an understanding of your specific make-up needs and will consider your skin and eye colouring, as well as what you and your bridesmaids will be wearing on the day; colour schemes, flowers and any themes you have on the day that you would like to incorporate.

During the trial Emma will discuss your own ideas with you, taking into account your make up preferences and personal style.


Early booking is recommended to ensure availability for your special day. Your wedding date will then be secured in Emma's diary and a date will be scheduled for your pre-wedding trial.
