Superbly talented bridal makeup artist, highly recommend.

Relaxed & calming, any bride can expect to have their expectations exceeded and be safe in the hands of a highly skilled and talented professional bridal makeup artist.
AOC Bridal helped to create the most special wedding day for me, with the excellent hair and makeup service provided.
From the two hour makeup trial, to the in depth consultation. The preparation during the day itself was calming and I felt very confident with Andrea's expertise.
Whether you want to achieve a very natural look or something slightly more dramatic, I could not recommend AOC Bridal Makeup artist highly enough.
Thank you for everything AOC.

Talented, calm and professional

Andrea was so amazing with my bridal party and tailored the makeup to everyone's individual preferences and styles. She succeeded where no MUA has succeeded before in finding false eyelashes that work for my dear old mum! She worked tirelessly and calmly amidst the chaos of the morning like a true professional. Thanks again Andrea for a great job, everyone was blown away with their makeup :)

Andrea is amazing!

I couldn't recommend Andrea more - she delivered beautiful make up for myself, my bridesmaids and my mum on our wedding day. Everyone was thrilled with how they looked! Andrea provided some great skin tips at my trial which really helped on the day and I've never felt so glam. Thanks so much Andrea!

Absolutely the best in her profession! Andrea taken everything I asked for and made even more amazing. I cannot recommend this lady.

Andrea made me feel so confident and beautiful on our day and made my happiness shine through the whole day. Everyone commented on how beautiful my makeup looked and it didn’t hide who I was. She made my bridesmaids feel so special and definitely fitted into the morning vibe.

I honestly thought I wouldn’t be a beautiful bride but on our day I truly felt like one so thank you so much Andrea xx

Absolutely amazing make up artiest

Andrea is absolutely amazing. I don't know what else to say other than that. From someone who doesn’t wear a lot of make up I was nervous about getting the right look but Andrea knew exactly what I wanted after listening to my ideas and got it absolutely right on the day, I felt amazing. She also gave me really useful advice leading up to the wedding and for general skin care after. I would recommend Andrea to anybody getting married - she's brilliant.

Lovely person, amazing makeup. You won’t be disappointed.

Andrea was perfect. I’d admit to being a demanding bride 😅 and Andrea was so lovely, professional and addressed every concern I had.
I absolutely loved my make up and it stayed in place beautiful even on one of the hottest days of the year and a lot of dancing.

The skin care guide changed my skin- I’ve been on antibiotics for years, using some of the recommended products meant my skin was the best it’s been in years.

I would highly recommend Andrea!!

Friendly and customer focused wedding makeup service.

Andrea created a very relaxed atmosphere and did an amazing job at creating a natural and long lasting look. We all got lots of compliments on our makeup. Nothing felt rushed and she really flexed to our needs which was important to me as none of us wear much make up. The touch up bag had lovely contents in too.

I’d definitely recommend Andrea for your wedding makeup.

Andrea is the BEST makeup artist ever!!!

Andrea literally worked her magic on my face for my wedding! I’ve never felt so beautiful and pretty and I had countless compliments on how gorgeous I looked. She made my face and skin look flawless and the makeup was natural looking! She also did my 4 sisters’ makeup and they all looked so gorgeous too and all our makeup stayed perfect throughout the whole day and night. She really is amazing and I cannot recommend her enough - she is the best makeup artist I’ve ever had. Thank you SO much Andrea! Xx
