Full Description
I'm absolutely passionate about making all of my brides look and feel flawlessly beautiful on their wedding day. Your beauty is unique to you and I love creating perfectly styled hair and makeup which naturally complements you and your wedding style. I truly love my job and being part of your wedding day preparations from beginning to end, I like to set a calm, relaxing and friendly atmosphere so that you feel completely at ease, and so that you fully enjoy all the mornings pampering. I only use the highest quality vegan & cruelty free products, and I'm incredibly passionate about enhancing women's natural features in a way that looks beautiful both ON and OFF camera. My main priority is to ensure that you fall in love with every aspect of your hair and make-up, I enjoy taking your initial ideas and creating a look you are dreaming of. I’m a highly skilled make-up artist and hair stylist who trained at the respected Sussex Make-Up Academy. Based in Hurstpierpoint in Sussex, I generally cover weddings in SUSSEX, SURREY, KENT and HAMPSHIRE, but am always happy to travel further afield if requested.

Just What I Wanted
I booked Emma as hair and makeup artist for my recent wedding (after a very disappointing trial with someone else) and I'm very pleased that I did! She did a great job and the end result was just what I wanted - a natural yet 'done' look with a healthy glow for both me and my bridesmaid. Our hairstyles were lovely too, and Emma really listened to what we had in mind and gave good advice. She was also punctual, professional and good company throughout the morning of getting ready. Thanks Emma. I would totally recommend you.

Would Recommend Her to Everyone
I booked Emma for my wedding where she did hair and makeup for me, my mum and a bridesmaid. At our trial Emma took the time to find out the style we all wanted and worked with us to ensure we all loved our look and felt comfortable. (This was perfect for three women who rarely wear makeup!) We never felt rushed and really felt like Emma listened to exactly what we wanted, even making suggestions if we were unsure of anything, such as the types of flowers I should order for my hair to ensure they lasted throughout the entire day. On the day itself Emma had our hair and makeup running like clockwork - it was clear she had thought about how she was going to get everyone ready on time (in a very short time frame too as our ceremony was at midday)! She ensured our hair and makeup was applied as agreed in the trial and we all loved our look. I had curls in my hair and was so pleased that they stayed in place all day - as someone with fine hair who struggles to do anything other than straight hair I was thrilled with this! The makeup also didn't move at all and still looked perfect by the end of the night. Overall we were so pleased with the hair and makeup put together by Emma, I've already recommended her to a couple of friends that are getting married and wouldn't hesitate to book her again should I ever need professional hair and makeup!

Professional and Kind
Throughout my communication with Emma, she was always prompt to respond and always answered any questions I had, she was not only professional, but kind too. It was very important to me that I could communicate what I wanted with my hair and makeup with ease and Emma was wonderful in helping me trial different hair styles without any fuss if changes needed to be made. My makeup was absolutely perfect and I have honestly never seen myself look as lovely as I did on my wedding day. Emma was able to accommodate my larger wedding party and everyone felt that they were really listened too throughout the styling. I couldn't recommend Emma enough for any events that you have and if you are a Bride-to-be yourself, I am certain that you will have your perfect hair and makeup ideas brought to life by Emma. I cannot thank her enough! X

Fun, Friendly & Hugely Talented
Emma was outstanding both before and on the wedding day. She spent time listening carefully in our first meeting and made sure that I looked exactly as I wanted, even carefully altering and adapting her work until I felt completely comfortable. On the day she made me look exactly as I wanted - the best version of myself. She was also fabulous with my mum and bridesmaids, taking time and care with all of them and they all looked beautiful. One of my bridesmaids had unfortunately had an accident resulting in a black eye which Emma was able to magically cover so that my bridesmaid felt confident and happy on the day. As well as being a fantastic artist, Emma is also a lovely person. She enhanced the morning, making all of us feel comfortable and joining in our happiness with enthusiasm and a great sense of humour. I was incredibly nervous and Emma was wonderful, helping me to relax and feel confident about myself and the day. I can't recommend her enough, she was absolutely perfect for us - fun, friendly and hugely talented. ​

The Makeup Was Camera Proof
I was initially drawn to Emma's work because the end result looked very natural, and that was exactly how I wanted my makeup to look. I was not disappointed. In fact I would go as far to say that her work ensured that my pictures were simply outstanding. She made my makeup 'camera proof' and it looked fabulous all day and night long. Thank you very much Emma; you work was faultless and I'd happily recommend you to anyone requiring a makeup artist for their wedding day.
