Fantastic wedding hair and make up provided

I was recommended Eleanor to do my wedding hair and make up by our wedding photographer. Before the wedding we did a trial, working out what make up and hairstyle would suit me. On the wedding day Eleanor was happy to come to my house any time, turning up just after 8am. We allowed extra time for setting up etc. I was due to leave the house about 11.30. The hair and makeup took a couple of hours to do. Eleanor was happy working in a busy environment, with my 5 bridesmaids also busily getting ready around us, this including my 5 year old daughter who was very interested in Eleanors make up! Eleanor did a great job, I was very pleased with the end result. I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing someone to do wedding hair and make up.

Wedding make up

Ellie was amazing, she listened to what I wanted and checked I was happy. She was professional and took my wedding seriously and made me feel reassured. She has lots of experience and I was so happy with the results. Airbrush foundation she applied looked so good and really lasted. Ellie was great and I would thoroughly recommend her.

Excellent service, very happy with Ellie

Very responsive, worked with me to find a look I was very happy with. My bridesmaids and I looked really good and I would highly recommend Ellie to anyone for makeup. She also got me a wonderful hairstylist.

Mrs S Cope

After looking at lots of different makeup artists for my wedding. I decided to go with Ellie. What a great find she was. Ellie was very professional, attentive and did exactly what I asked for. On my wedding day my hair and makeup looked fantastic. Glamorous but natural. I really couldn’t have chosen anyone better. If you’re looking for a makeup artist with great skills and a lovely, caring personality. Look no further. Ellie was amazing and I’m so glad, I had her for our special day.

A seamless enjoyable experience

I got married on 26th June 2021 and Ellie did my make up for my big day.
She arrived early and set up her kit quietly and efficiently. The makeup was beautiful and was just what I asked for. I had a trial with Ellie also, she really listened to what a wanted and made sure I was 100% happy. I couldn’t recommend Ellie as a wedding makeup artist enough. My skin was beautiful and the tones she used complemented me so well. She even gave me a lipstick so I could top my lips up during my big day. Wow wow wow

Thank you so much!

I can't say thank you enough to Ellie for doing my bridal make up.

From the outset, she was quick to respond to any question or query, and really took the time to get to know me, my style, and how I envisioned my wedding make up.

On the day, I was super nervous as I had lots of family down and the wedding was quite early in the day. Ellie was so calm and reassuring that she completely put me ease and having my make up done felt really therapeutic! She completely settled my pre wedding nerves.

The make up itself was everything I'd asked for and more. I was thrilled and it was the confidence boost I needed before walking down the aisle. I'd also asked Ellie to do my bridesmaids make up which she tailored to their individual style. We all got so many compliments on our make up. It lasted all day and night, through all the happy tears and dancing! I truly can't say thank you enough.

Wonderful makeup artist

Eleanor is a lovely person with great communication and makeup skills. Was punctual and did a great job on my wedding day- she went above and beyond by even purchasing a lipstick that I liked more and gifting it so I could reapply on the day. She’s very kind, skilled and I couldn’t recommend her enough

Eleanor was great from the start, she listens makes you feel comfortable. On the big day my make up was perfect and lasted all day and night! And got a lipstick to top up.

True professionals, outstanding skill and standard and lovely people!

True professionals, outstanding skill and standard and lovely people! Eleanor and Kylie did airbrush make up and hair for myself and a large bridal party at my wedding in Norfolk. I cannot recommend both of them enough. From the initial email, through to the trial and until the end of the wedding day morning, they were nothing short of professional, efficient, kind and incredibly skilled at their work. They listened to our ideas and made them a gorgeous reality! We all had compliments all day about our hair and make up - it was beautiful, long lasting and felt magical to get to experience. We couldn’t have asked for a happier and more positive experience!

Exactly what I wanted

As someone who doesn’t wear a lot of makeup, Eleanor did such a wonderful job of keeping my makeup natural, but at the same time completely me. She did such a wonderful job and the photos came out perfect.
