    Gemma is a gem, I am lucky I found Gemma

    I am a bride from Japan. I have been looking for someone who can do both make up&hair. I booked her the trial in January for my pre-wedding photo shoot and the prestige package(the whole day). She was with me the whole day to do touch-ups and to change my look for the evening party. She did an amazing job and was very professional. I am very happy for her service. Thank you Gemma, indeed.

    Just Perfect

    Gemma you are absolutely amazing! It took me so long to decide on a make up artist but when I came across your page I knew I'd found the one and I wasn't wrong! Thank you so much for making not only myself but my 4 bridesmaids, mum and nan look extra special on my wedding day. We all trusted you to do what you do best and we all looked better than we ever imagined. 5* professional service from the moment I booked all the way until the big day.

    Absolutely Fabulous

    Gemma has been truly wonderful to work with, always professional and she truly saved me after I booked the wrong date (so double check ladies!) Despite having a wedding earlier in the day she made it work and for that I cannot thank her enough! On the day she was relaxed and calm which definetly rubbed off on me, and needless to say the look she created was just perrrfect!

    Joey & Mark - Bartle Hall 3/1/22

    Well where do I start, I never ever dreamed I’d feel how I did on my wedding day. Thanks to Gemma, her knowledge & experience just shone through the whole experience of my trial & on the actual day. Gemma has a very calming vibe about her, open to your ideas and thoughts but also recommends if necessary. I’m not a big make-up wearer in general but felt it was just enough and for the first time for myself and sister of wearing eye lashes we were put at ease and were suggested the correct style for us to be comfortable with.
    Gemma did the make up & hair for the 3 of us on the morning, happy to look at photo suggestions and create her own masterpiece. We were all thrilled to bits with the finished look. I actually have not enough words to express my feelings about my hair. My natural hair just doesn’t grow so extensions were suggested and I was alittle apprehensive but my god I felt like an actual Princess 🥰
    I honestly couldn’t recommend Gemma enough, the whole package 👌
    Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for making me feel PERFECT 😍

    Made me feel like a princess

    Gemma and her assistant Kelly did such a brilliant job of hair and makeup for myself, 3 bridesmaids and my mum and gran. Most of us had never had makeup done before and they both did such a good job of putting us at ease (my trial was fab!) and helping us relax and enjoy the morning. On the morning they were perfectly punctual and ran exactly to the timetable Gemma had set out. My hair and makeup (and everyone else's) was exactly how I'd envisioned it and I felt like a princess. My hair is thick and heavy so I'd been a bit worried that it wouldn't hold curls but both my hair and all of my bridesmaids updos were still totally perfect at 1am! Gemma and Kelly both were such lovely, friendly people and exactly the kind of people you want when you're getting ready for your wedding day - really, it was just like having two more friends to get ready with. Thank you both so much!

    Gemma is a true diamond!!

    I booked the all day package (they arrived at 7am and left at 10pm!) and the Glitter Bar for the evening. I cannot thank Gemma and Amy enough for all their attention to detail and for making this knackered doctor look like a princess!
    They made all my bridesmaids look stunning and everyone mentioned how radiant I looked. The power of make up is astounding!
    Gemma made sure my makeup was perfect throughout the day and nothing was too much trouble.
    Now the Glitter bar...the queue was insane!! It was such a success!!
    We were so impressed that we've already booked Gemma again for another event in December.

    The dream supplier, who delivers 100%

    Working with Gemma was so easy. Gemma's communication is second to none. I was 100% confident I'd made the right decision picking Gemma to do hair and madeup for me and my many bridesmaids. On the day Gemma kept us super organised but she fitted in like one of my girls. We had such a great morning hanging out together. Thank you Gemma

    Gemma Marie Makeup's reply:

    What a fantastic morning getting you all ready on your wedding morning Kirsty! You were a dream bridal party and a pleasure to work with. Thankyou so much for your kind words xx

    Love my make up!!

    I can’t rave enough about Gemma!! From the trial all the way to the big day she was amazing!! During the trail she took notes and made sure I’m super happy with everything. She asked questions and explained everything to me every step of the way! I would 100% recommend her and will definitely use her again in the future.
    On my wedding day, she did my makeup, my mums and 2 of my bridesmaids and we all loved it! 💗
    Thank you!! 💗 xxx

    Lovely, relaxed, made me feel comfortable

    Gemma really made me feel comfortable even though I don’t usually wear make-up and she let me build it up really slowly always giving me the option to take things back off again if it felt too much. She also tried lots of different hair options and put up with indecisiveness without a problem!
    She was really helpful easy to chat both at the trial and on the day and it helped me keep calmer when getting ready on the day!
    Thanks so much, I was really pleased with my look 😊

    Excellent make-up Artist

    Gemma is so lovely and made me feel at ease thoughout my wedding day morning. Gemma made me look beautiful and feel very confident. All my bridesmaids complimented how amazing and lovely she was.

    Highly recommend her for makeup. I have already booked Gemma for my July celebration.

    Thankyou so much Claire! You made such a beautiful bride and very excited about doing your makeup again for your second ceremony.

    Loveliest make up artist I’ve ever had!

    Gemma is such a talented and wonderful woman, she made me feel at ease throughout the whole make up process and the make up and hair was 100/10. I expressed that my eyes are very sensitive so lashes were a little scary for me but I still wanted to try them, she was so patient with me and went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and happy with the look.

    I’ve never felt more beautiful and confident I can’t recommend her enough to anyone looking for a make up artist for their wedding day!

    Gemma Marie Makeup's reply:

    I am so pleased you were happy with your makeup! Thank you Lisa for your lovely words. It was a joy being your makeup artist!

    Absolutely Amazing!

    I would 1 million percent recommend Gemma! She did my bridal makeup alongside 5 bridesmaids and my stepmum so it was no easy task! She fit in so well with the bridal party on the day which helped so much with the pre-wedding nerves as we were all so relaxed and had such a laugh! I booked Gemma at quite short notice and she was so accommodating, arranging a trial to suit the time and dates that I was free! She listened to everything I liked/disliked and created the perfect look for me! I felt amazing and I truly can’t thank Gemma enough xxx

    Gemma Marie Makeup's reply:

    I Will always have such lovely memories from your wedding morning prep. Lots of fun and giggles! Thank you so much for choosing me as your makeup artist Alicia.
