Wedding Hair & Makeup

Look your radiant best on your wedding day with my professional and award-winning bridal hair & makeup services.

Each wedding package includes a rehearsal in my romantic Edwardian-inspired beauty studio in Aldershot, Hampshire. Take a seat and relax as we agree on your bridal hair and makeup with up to three guests of your choice. You’ll enjoy a delicious cream tea as we chat through your ideas and inspiration. I’ll then take that information to create your look for your big day taking your dress, theme, head-dress and so on into account. We’ll work on your look until you’re completely satisfied. Then on the big day itself, I’ll faithfully recreate your agreed look. 

Every bride who books my services gets my unofficial fairy godmother service on her big day included as standard. I’ll stay with you at your home or hotel room until you’re ready to leave and everyone looks their absolute best. I’ll be there to lend a calm and experienced hand with dressing, emergency repairs and etiquette advice. I can help you fasten those fiddly wedding dress buttons and position the corsages and buttonholes that shaky fingers can’t quite manage. I even make a smashing cup of tea to help calm any nerves and last-minute jitters (normally for the father or mother of the bride!).

Have Not Felt That Comfortable With How I Looked Since Childhood. 

Right from the first phone call to enquire I knew that I could work with Ema. She was friendly and open but what struck me was that she could listen to the ideas I had and then use her vast knowledge to try and make that happen rather than deciding for me how it should be done. She suggested starting Pinterest boards of styles I liked so she could get to know me and what I liked. In this way, she managed to make the most beautiful custom hair piece for me. I absolutely love it, as did my husband. It was totally me! During the practise session, we tried a couple of hair styles as I wasn't sure about having my hair down (having initially wanted that). She didn't mind. What was lovely with the makeup was that Ema applied it based on the images I had shown her then we tweaked it to include things like the style of the eyeliner I would ordinarily wear. So, on the day I still looked like me but on a very, very, very good day! On the wedding day, I felt amazing when I looked into the mirror. I have not felt that comfortable with how I looked since childhood and this had a huge bearing on my day and how confident I felt and how I could just enjoy what was going on around me. She is truly a magician! And a thoughtful one at that. She helped me get ready, sorting my petticoat and doing my shoes up. We even returned that evening to a tidy room where she had straightened up for us before she had left. A friend had recommended Ema to me but what a find! I wholeheartedly recommend her for her professionalism and skills but also because of the personality she is. Thank you Ema!

Turning You Into A Dream Bride. 

I could not have asked for a better make-up artist and hair stylist for my wedding!!  Ema has the ability to read your personality, listen to your ideas and then translate it all into perfection!  She doesn’t just do what you ask, she advises on how to achieve it in the best possible way, so it complements you, enhancing your best features and turning you into a dream bride.  On the day she took charge but in a very calm, professional way, guiding everyone in the right direction in order for everything to be stress free, from hair and make-up to putting the dress on, sorting the buttonholes and packing me into the car.  She single handed orchestrated my morning of preparation for my most special day.  Even my mum, who I thought was going to be very difficult, having said she didn’t want any make-up and hair done, said that she felt so relaxed while her make-up was done.  That has never happened before!!  The other element that is very important is Ema’s brilliant communication with the bride, not just on the day, but in all the preparation leading up to the day. We created my look together.  I felt I was listened to and in control, as one of my big fears was to not look the way I wanted to look on the day, and also knowing that the look suited me.  With Ema I didn’t have to worry about this, and for me this sort of communication was the key. I felt in safe hands, hands of the person who knows all the tricks and knows exactly what she is doing. I made my mind up in the first few minutes of my trial.

Thank you so much Ema! I have already started recommending you to all my friends who are getting married soon. You are simply the best!

Like Seeing An Old Friend At Exactly The Right Time.

‘From start to finish, I was so impressed and inspired by Ema's service. She truly listened to what my (very vague and unhelpful!) vision was, and managed to reflect that in the make-up she offered, the styles she used, and the guidance she gave. On the day itself, Ema was so reassuring and warm - it was like seeing an old friend at exactly the right time, though we had only met once before! I had wanted something natural and dewy, but with enough definition. Ema advised me carefully about what was important in order for the make-up and hair to last perfectly throughout the wedding day, without being too heavy. And indeed, everything did last perfectly all day! I only once or twice topped up my lipstick the whole time. The makeup was light and breathable, and neither my face nor hair felt 'stiff' despite the artistic creativity it had received! I am so grateful to Ema for making this aspect of my wedding day as beautiful and meaningful as the rest.’
