Every bride wants to feel and look beautiful on their wedding day, it's one of the most important days of their lives and the photos from it will be treasured forever.
The right wedding make-up will enhance your features, make you look youthful and radiant, photograph beautifully, be long-lasting and work with your natural colouring as well as the scheme of your wedding. Most importantly though, it should be something that you feel totally comfortable with and gorgeous wearing.
I am an experienced make-up artist and have worked in many different aspects of make-up including fashion, editorial, commercial, theatrical, video and beauty but wedding make-up is one area that I particularly specialise in and something I really love doing.
I have worked with hundreds of brides and I honestly can't think of a lovelier job! I have so much fun with my ladies and absolutely love being part of their wedding mornings. I build great relationships with my customers and there's no better feeling than handing a girl a mirror and knowing that they feel really special.
My kit is full of beautiful, premium-branded products including Mac, Illamsqua, Dior, Chanel, Bobbi Brown, Estee Lauder, Clinique and Nars amongst others. The cosmetics I use are ones that I have researched, tried and tested and know are going to last all day and photograph fantastically.
For more information on my wedding make-up services, please see my Wedding F.A.Q.s and Further Information page.
I am also available for Special Occasion make-up and make-up lessons. I am a trained nail technician and offer discounts to bridal parties who book both wedding make-up and nails with me.

Some lovely testimonials from my wonderful brides:
"I just wanted to say a massive thank you for doing my make up last month for my wedding. Me and bridesmaids were over the moon with the way we looked and I can't thank you enough for doing such an amazing job.
As well as making us look and feel beautiful it felt really relaxed whilst we were getting ready with you which was so nice as I always imagined I'd be stressed and nervous wreck on the morning if the wedding.
Everyone commented how lovely and professional you were and how you went the extra mile to make sure we all looked perfect. It was really nice of you as well to stay until we left to touch up our make up and take photos in the garden.
I'll definitely be recommending you to anyone that is looking for a make up artist and my bridesmaid has already taken your number for a friend of hers. In fact, I'm dying to have an occasion where I can get my make up done again - hopefully soon!!" -Becky Bennett
"I wanted to say firstly thank you so much for being so amazing on our wedding day. It was so lovely to have you there as a calming influence, helping out with tweezers for my buttons, and doing such a brilliant job with the make up! I loved every minute of being pampered, and thank you so much for just being so lovely the whole morning, as well as doing a fab job of glamming us up!"- Louise McCann
"Hi Helen, I just wanted to message to say thank you SO much for all your help yesterday, I definitely couldn't have got through that last hour without you! You did an absolutely amazing job with not only my makeup but my hair accessories and my nails, you went above and beyond what I was expecting and my whole day turned out perfect because of it''- Becky McCluskey
