Full Description
Before the wedding day Ema provides at-home beauty services to prepare brides for their wedding day and honeymoon afterwards. Services include manicures and pedicures, waxing including intimate waxing, lash and brow tinting and shaping, aromatherapy massage and lash extensions. Ema has been a qualified beauty therapist for over 20 years, her experience puts everyone in safe hands. Looking for Hen Parties ideas? For up to 6 members of the bridal party and in the comfort of your own home, choose from a Pamper Party which includes mini manicures/ pedicures/ massages or a Glamour Party which includes brow shaping/ mini facials/ waxing. This is a fun and cost-effective alternative for small hen groups to going out plus doubles as preparation for the wedding day too! On the wedding day following a rehearsal a month beforehand, Ema will come to the brides home/ hotel or venue of choice and provide makeup and or hair styling for the bride and bridal party, including mums and young flowergirls. Rehearsals are arranged for the bride to design a makeup look and or hairstyle that is tailored specifically to the brides personality, colouring and wedding theme. After the design has been applied, any necessary changes are made so the bride is fully satisfied with her look. The confirmed look is then recreated exactly on the wedding day. With Ema's extensive knowledge of how photography, lighting, weather and colour can affect the skin and hair favourably or not, brides can rest assured that they won't look like a stranger on their wedding day and their photographs will enhance their natural beauty. 'More than just a makeup artist' is a quote from one bride who booked Ema for makeup for her and her bridal party. For Ema's services extend far beyond just that. She will help brides into their dresses, tie cravats, attach buttonholes, fix broken shoes (which happened quite recently), make sandwiches, sew a torn zip.... 'Ema is the calm friend you need just at the right time'.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Ema Doherty
As the sole owner of my business it is extremely important for me to know that all my brides are 100% happy with the services they receive from me. I love what I do and I love helping people, so if I can impart some advice, knowledge or wisdom that helps just one bride prepare better for her wedding with a relaxed and calm state of mind then my job is complete.

I have worked with Ema and experienced myself her fantastic make-up and hair designs. She creates the best look bespoke to her brides and even manages to keep the little ones still as they have their hair done. Highly recommend!

Such a professional
I have had the pleasure of working with Ema on a few weddings this year and she is such a joy to be around. As a hair and make-up artist, she truly delivers the brief and her flexibility with styles is amazing. She is such a warm and calm person to be around too, often going above and beyond to fix a button hole or climb under a dress to secure the garter. Ema's time management is excellent and she can always get a trailing bridal party to where they need to be.

The perfect hair & makeup artist
I've worked with Ema on a number of occasions, and I'd totally recommend her services. She's done my own hair and makeup, as well as for my clients. She creates a really natural, light look whilst covering everything that needs covering so that you feel like you don't have heavy foundation clogging up your skin. She's also more than a hair and makeup artist - she's more like the fairy godmother! She comes armed with all sorts of things to help the Bride get ready, and also helps the Bride put her dress on etc. My clients have always been super happy with her services.

The most amazing day from start to finish
Ema was truly outstanding at getting myself and my bridal party looking amazing for the big day. It was an early start, and Ema played a huge part in making everything run smoothly that morning. Both myself and one of my bridemaides don't wear Make up on a normal day to day basices and all I do with my hair is run a brush through it. Ema managed to keep our Make up simple and elegant so that we could feel comfortable and still feel like ourselves. My hair was stunning and differnt and fitted in so well with my crown. As my bridemaides are so different from eachother, Ema did their hairs different to fit with their personalities, but while still keeping them within a theme. One of my bridemaides loved their hair so much she kept it for three days. I can't imagine my wedding day without Ema, she is so talented and goes above and beyond to help. Ema was helping my mum to get her necklace on, she helped me to sort out last minutes touches to one of the flower bouquets, and stayed right until the end to ensure I got into the car ok. You are truly wounderful and amazing at what you do Ema, thank you so much I will always sing your praises.

A fantastic hair and make up artist who goes above and beyond
From our first meeting at the hair and make up trial until she saw me off on my wedding day, Ema was fantastic. She took the details about my dress, style and what I wanted and created an amazing vintage look that everybody complimented. I always felt comfortable with her and at no point did I feel pressured to accept a particular look that I wasn't 100% happy with. On the wedding day itself, she not only did my hair and make up but also stayed to help me into my dress and shoes (as I didn't have a bridal party) and even put my father's buttonhole on for him. She really made me feel calm and in control before setting off for the venue. I couldn't recommend Ema highly enough!
