Bridal Makeup Service

On your wedding day you want to feel confident, comfortable & Utterly gorgeous!

My years of experience have taught me that every bride is individual and that comes with individual needs and requirements.

I have been a professional make-up artist for over thirteen years now and have worked with many brides combining their personal ideas with my expertise to give them their own unique look on their wedding day.

I offer a totally complimentary trial for the bride without any commitment at all. This gives you a chance to experience what I can do for you on your wedding day.  I listen to all of your personal wants and needs and work with you to create your ideal look for your wedding.

I am more than happy to attend to any size wedding party, from just you, all the way through to Bridesmaids & extra special guests & will travel where ever I am required.

I only use the best products on the market which are long lasting and give the best results. Jane Iredale & Blinc are our core brands within the salon which are not only good for your skin but improve it dramatically.

We also offer full prep pampering services such as Luxury manicures, Luxury Pedicures, OPI gel overlays, Minx overlays, Threading, Waxing, Facials, & a range of eyelash treatments to make you look your best on your big day.

Having somebody there on your wedding day that you trust, is relaxed & professional  is extremely important. I absolutely love my job & I hope that you will enjoy having me there with you as much I enjoy every single wedding I am lucky enough to be a small part of.

If you’re looking for more than just make up we also have amazingly talented hair stylists who are experts in bridal hair. Lee Matthews Marlborough is our sister company & is under the same roof as our beauty salon. I can also recommend excellent photographers, the very best florists and a fantastic tried & tested personal trainer to whip you in to shape before the big day!! please see our recommend suppliers & services page & please get in touch if I can help in any way.

Testimonials

Karen completely understood how I wanted to look on my big day and amazed me with how she not only made me look but how she made me feel. I can’t believe how relaxed but excited she made me feel – a long standing friend couldn’t have done it better. Pure talent and a fantastic person to boot. This is the lady you should have with you for your big day or special occasion. Thank you so much Karen xx

Make-up is such a personal thing and wanting to look my best on my wedding day I wanted to find someone I could trust to achieve a look that I was happy and felt comfortable with, was so important to me. Karen was fantastic, the pre wedding trial allowed us to discuss my thoughts and experiment creating a look that I was happy with so on the day I knew what I was getting and felt relaxed and comfortable in her hands. The whole experience was amazing Karen was excellent and really helped to make our day so memorable, having that time getting ready with my mum and bridesmaids in the morning was a special part of my day and Karen really made the whole experience perfect! Only wish I could have her expertise everyday

Having never really liked the makeup other people did for me I totally trusted Karen when it came to my wedding makeup and she well and truly delivered! I was blown away with the look she created while feeling like I was barely wearing any makeup! Perfect for a hot summer wedding! She’s also so genuinely excited about being a part of a bride’s special day which is lovely”

I am not someone that usually wears makeup so when it came to planning my wedding I knew a great makeup artist would be essential! I spoke to Karen and booked in with her which made me feel much more at ease!! Karen did a trial before and gave me some great tips about face creams etc that would be best to use before the wedding! On the day Karen came to my mums and worked her magic, she made me feel so relaxed and helped me feel really beautiful on my special day! Karen is brilliant at what she does and I recommend her to all my family and friends! Thank you Karen x

Karen was amazing on my wedding day. She was so friendly and fun and great to have there throughout the morning leading up to the ceremony. She went above and beyond by rescuing my hair along with my amazing makeup. I hate photos of myself but I actually have some lovely photos thanks to the natural elegant makeup by Karen. Thanks to her I felt confident and good about myself  on my wedding day.

I am not a woman that wears very much makeup day to day and I was worried that if I went to a makeup artist for ‘wedding makeup’ I would end up caked and feeling uncomfortable.  Karen gave me a very natural look and highlighted all my best features without making me feel uncomfortable.  She is so approachable and fun to be with, she made the whole experience so easy.
