About

On Hitched.co.uk since 2020

Last update: February 2024

I have worked as a make up artist for over 11 years, with a passion for bridal beauty. There is such joy in making other women feel confident and beautiful, and I feel truly privileged to do my job. When it comes to beauty, my philosophy has always remained the same - make up should make you look and feel like yourself, but on a really good day. I don’t believe in wearing a mask to hide away, I want every woman to feel confident in their own skin and the right make up has the power to do just that. I pride myself on creating fresh, natural, timeless make up for the modern bride, catering to every age and skin tone. I ensure my brides not only look incredible in person, but behind the camera too.

I am currently based in Suffolk, also covering East Anglia and the South-East of England. I’m also available for destination weddings.

Beautiful person, fantastic MUA

Could not fault Sophy at all! I am so glad I found Sophy - and she was available for my day. I knew that I wanted someone who wouldn't overload my face and would help guide me through the make up process as I did not have a clue! I was anxious about finding the right person, but Sophy completely put me at ease and we had a video chat beforehand and she advised me on skincare so I had plenty of time to get sorted. Fast forward to trial day - Sophy talked me through what she was doing and did it in stages, making sure it wasn't too much and I was comfortable. I knew I had picked the right person!
In the lead up to our wedding day, Sophy quickly responded to any messages - despite officially still being on maternity leave!
On the day Sophy was a dream to be around - so chilled, so professional and did mine and mum's make up beautifully (even helped me put my earring in!) and stayed with me until I left the room to head to the venue.
My make up stayed looking good all day, I didn't feel self conscious or need to touch it up. In our pictures I still look like me, but with flawless skin! The morning after, my skin wasn't feeling irritated or having a breakout.

If you don't wear much make up or looking for someone to do natural looking, yet stunning bridal make up - you're in safe hands with Sophy!

Amazing MUA, so pleased I found Sophy!

I was so pleased I stumbled across Sophy on Hitched and that she had availability for my wedding day!
From the initial communication, Sophy was professional and easy communicate with.
Sophy gave me exactly the look I was after, along with my 3 bridesmaids, and make us all feel so beautiful and special. She was a joy to be around in the morning of the wedding, with her calm demeanour and reassuring words. I would recommend Sophy one thousand times over, and would honestly love to redo the day just to have Sophy to my makeup again!
The makeup latest all day and all night, and I had numerous compliments throughout the day.
If you're looking for a makeup artist to help you become the most beautiful version of yourself on your special day, then honestly look no further!

Couldn't recommend Sophy more!

I can't thank Sophy enough for being part of my wedding. From scheduling to the make up trial to the wedding morning - Sophy brought a calmness and a warmth that made us all feel at ease. She totally understood the vibe I was after and from a practical sense all of the products that she used were amazing.

I absolutely loved my make up and all of my bridesmaid felt the same way about theirs. We all felt like we looked like ourselves, but the absolute best version. I can't thank Sophy enough for the joy she added to my day!

Lovely Make Up

Sophy was lovely, very well organised, calm and made me feel calm on my wedding day.

At first I was not sure what look I wanted but knew I wanted a classical look. Sophy spent time with me finding the perfect look. A week before the wedding I got a black eye. Sophy managed to cover this up and no one noticed. Guests commented on how beautiful I looked.

The made of honours were beautifully done by Sophy too.

I searched around 20 make up artists however Sophy's style was the most natural looking. I also did not have a large bridal party and a lot of other make up artists required a minimum number. This was not the case with Sophy. She was very flexible.

Thank you Sophy for making me feel beautiful on my wedding day.

Dream come true

I honestly don't know where to start with my thanks to Sophy. She is an absolute professional in every sense of the word - from booking to arranging my trial to the big day itself, it was nothing but ease and breeze - completely stress and worry free. On the day she made me, my 3 bridesmaids and my (usually no make up!) mum all look and feel like a million dollars and even stepped in to assist me with my final touches and preparations (earrings, shoes and fiddly bracelet) when the excitement/panic started to creep in during those final 15 minutes before I walked down the aisle. Thank you Sophy - you're an absolutely dreamy pro at what you do and I'm so glad to have met you!

Nothing short of perfect!

I cannot thank Sophy enough.
She gave me exactly the look I wanted whilst making me look a million times better than I could ever have imagined!
My bridesmaids also looked stunning, and she perfectly put everyone at ease on the wedding morning, listening to everyone’s preferences and making us all feel so pampered and beautiful.
She really was a joy to have on my wedding morning and I’d recommend her to anyone. 200%. Thank you Sophy 🥰

Phenomenal (makeup) artist

Sophy is overall one of the sweetest, friendliest, kindest and most organised people you will ever meet. She is so patient, listens to exactly what you want and goes above and beyond to ensure your makeup is flawless. She is absolutely perfect in every way. I couldn’t have dreamed of having a better makeup artist and company on the morning of my wedding.

Made me feel so special on my big day

Not only is Sophy just a lovely person, she is the ultimate professional. From my initial trial to my big day, Sophy made me feel special. Not only did she tweak my own makeup from the trial, make my sis and mum look stunning, but she made my mother-in-law who never wears makeup feel amazing too. She also catered for my friend that wanted bright pink incorporated to her eyeshadow and made it look incredible. Any request wasn't too much and she was such a calming influence to have around on my big day. Can't recommend Sophy highly enough!

Just amazing!!!

I am so grateful and happy to have had Sophy with me on my wedding morning to do mine, my mum and sisters make up. She listened to exactly what we wanted, she made me feel so confident and relaxed on the morning. Sophy stayed with us until we left for the church meaning she could do last minute touch ups before photos which was amazing. Communication was so easy, she was incredibly flexible and just all round perfect!! Due to Covid we had a very small wedding this year with a bigger celebration planned for next year and I have already booked Sophy again. I cannot recommend enough.

Highly reccommended!

Sophy Jane did an amazing job on mine and my Mum's make up. She was friendly and personable and regularly checked in to make sure I was happy with what she was doing. When I had to change the timings for the big day she was flexible and accomodating. I'd be more than happy to book her again and will definitely be reccommending her to friends and family

Amazing makeup artist!

Sophy was absolutely amazing, I can't recommend her enough. I didn't know what I wanted and don't wear a lot of makeup and she did such a good job that I felt really confident for the whole day, the makeup was really natural so I still looked like myself, but a better version! I got so many compliments on how I looked and I'm so pleased I hired Sophy. I could see that it also really boosted the confidence of my bridesmaids and we were all saying how amazing Sophy is and we'd love her to do our makeup all the time!
She was also really professional, friendly and reliable.

The best of the best!

I was recommended Sophy on a local FB page having done a late shoutout for a professional make-up artist 6 weeks before my wedding!
Thank goodness she was available!

I honestly can't say enough what a lovely experience it was having Sophy do my make-up for the most special moment of my life.

Sophy is not just a fantastically skilled make-up artist but she is kind, warm and genuinely enjoys the buzz and excitment of the occasion - this really added to helping me feel nothing but relaxed and excited on the morning of my wedding.

The premium beauty products she used stayed on perfectly throughout the long day, with v minimal touch-ups required.
She also v kindly helped me into my dress on the morning and stayed until I left for the venue doing touch-ups prior to me leaving.

If you want someone who will not only accentuate your look but also just make you feel relaxed and allow you to be the beautiful bride you are on your day, then do book Sophy - you will not regret it whatsoever.

Incredible MUA ❤️



Sophy recently did the make up for myself, my bridesmaid and my mum on my wedding day and I cannot thank her enough. Not only is Sophy incredibly calming, kind, friendly and professional, she is an incredible make up artist. I felt AMAZING on the day – and I very rarely compliment myself, but I felt soooo pretty! That is all thanks to her impeccable skills. I would highly, highly recommend Sophy to others. Our make up stayed on all day and night and it gave me so much confidence in myself. I only wish I could look that good every day! Thank you, Sophy for providing the BEST service!

Above and beyond

Choosing the right MUA for your wedding is a big decision, but I felt so well looked after by Sophy and couldn’t recommend her enough. Not only was my makeup amazing and lasted all evening (as I knew it would after our trial) but she made my bridesmaids feel and look so special too.

Sophy is wonderful at what she does but also didn’t complain about being moved around and directed by photographers and helped wherever she could on the day.

If you want to look like the best version of yourself on the day but also be around a calm and kind presence, then look no further.

Amazing, lovely, perfect!

Everything about the experience with Sophy for my aunties wedding was perfect…
Sophy was lovely from the beginning of the trial, helping and giving suggestions and this was continued throughout into the morning of the wedding. Sophy made the day of the wedding relaxing and not to mention the make up was amazing! Recommend everyone to use Sophy ❤️
