For Brides To Be Who Want To Look Beautiful, Radiant And Flawless It’s Not Just Makeup, It’s An Experience. Planning a wedding can be stressful, and it can be an anxious time right up until the moment you’re face-to-face with your beloved at the altar. Your makeup need not be on the list of concerns. Each bride is unique, that’s why we’ll discover what you like and dislike to create the bridal look of your dreams. On the day it will be about helping you to feel relaxed, enjoy the experience of getting ready, and ensure you look beautiful. I want you to feel special from the moment we get started, it’s a luxury experience that’s only going to make your day even more memorable. From the moment you book your bridal makeup with me, I want you to feel special. I know how important your day is and I will be delighted to add to this wonderful experience. Each year I only take a very limited amount of weddings to ensure that you receive the best experience and my full attention from the beginning of the process right up to the time I leave you on the wedding day.

All of the makeup was simple STUNNING
Nicola did my wedding makeup for myself and my three bridesmaids. Not only was Nicola extremely professional, she was also calm and such a reassuring presence on the morning of my wedding. All of the makeup was simple STUNNING and lots of our wedding guests commented on how amazing the makeup was as we 'looked like ourselves but so polished" Nicola kept perfectly on time and kept everyone calm and also was so relaxed she felt like part of our team. Thank you again so much Nicola!!!!!

I just looked like the best version of myself
I used Nicola to do my wedding makeup and that of my bridesmaids and she was absolutely amazing! My makeup looked so natural and glowy- I just looked like the best version of myself- and it literally didn't budge for the whole day (about 10 hours all in all). A couple of my bridesmaids don't usually wear makeup so they had initially been a little apprehensive- however Nicola listened to them, put them at ease, and gave them a really fresh natural look: they were absolutely delighted in the end as was I. As well as doing really beautiful natural makeup, Nicola created a lovely atmosphere on the wedding day- on what could have been an intense morning, she was just so calm and relaxed and gentle with everyone and it got the day off to exactly the right start. From the moment I booked I felt confident I was in the right hands- Nicola was really responsive on emails and happy to answer any questions I had. When I met her for the trial I was pleased (and a little jealous!) of the vast range of high-end products she had available. It was also a real bonus that she came to my home for the trial and that I didn't have to travel for it- I didn't really come across that during the time I was searching for a bridal makeup artist and it felt like a treat. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nicola to anyone thinking about having their makeup done for their wedding- she was an integral part of the day and I couldn't have been happier with how I looked.

We all looked amazing
Thank you for making me look like a princess on my wedding day! We all looked amazing and are so grateful for your time and commitment to ensure everyone was relaxed and looked beautiful. I loved the products that you used and have added them to my wish list of things to add to my make up bag. I was a very happy bride!

I loved it, and can't fault her.
Nicola did my make up for my wedding- I looked amazing. She also did the makeup of my bridal party and Mum. She listened to me, and what I wanted so my look worked with my dress and aesthetics. I loved it, and can't fault her. She was professional but also friendly. Would definitely recommend

Nicola was truly amazing!
Nicola was truly amazing! I booked her for my wedding makeup. Not only is she fantastic and has an amazing talent for makeup but she is friendly, understanding and brings an essence of calm especially for nervous brides. Due to covid we had to postpone our wedding three different times. Nicola was so supportive and understanding in her emails. Also she gave me confidence especially as i don't normally wear a lot of makeup and never made me feel embarrassed or stupid for my lack of makeup use or knowledge. But what i loved was she was explained to me what she was doing and giving my bridesmaid and i tips for the future too. Her talent to deliver stunning makeup while making it natural was amazing. I would certainly recommend Nicola for any brides wanting a professional, compassionate make up artist who genuinely cares.

Nicola did an incredible job
Nicola did an incredible job on myself and my maid of honour on my wedding day. Nicola is professional, friendly and puts you at ease. I felt so special and all our guests complimented my makeup throughout our wedding. I would highly recommend Nicola for any makeup service, whether that be lessons or a full makeover. I will definitely be asking her to book me in for another makeover when we can celebrate our wedding with more people.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

To enjoy the experience

Describe your typical process with a couple.

All communications are handled via email, we would discuss availability for the wedding date initially, where I am free to accommodate the wedding we would make arrangements for a trial to take place 8-12 weeks before the wedding day which would be secured with a non refundable retailer fee of the wedding booking which is deducted off the wedding balance. On the day of the trial we would discuss the brides current skincare routine which can impact the application and result of the makeup making recommendations and potential adjustments where necessary. We would discuss whether the bride had an inspirational picture they would like to incorporate into their makeup, the colour of the flowers and dresses so the makeup would compliment all the details. Upon completion of the trial and final payment of the wedding day I am available to the bride at any time if they have any questions.

What do you love most about your job?

I love meeting new people and helping women feel empowered and beautiful, I want women to see you can be beautiful with enhancing your features not completely covering up with heavy makeup.

What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?

Exfoliate once a week and cleanse morning and night.

How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?

I have been told by many people that being in my presence brings a sense of calm, I always check that the bride is OK and feels relaxed reminding her to enjoy every moment of the morning getting ready.

What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?

If you feel a little oil is developing on the skin or it is starting to look shiny take a tissue and peel it do you only have 1 ply Sheet then gently dab it on your face to soak up the oils.
