An absolute master

I CANNOT RECOMMEND GEMMA ENOUGH. Gemma did the bridal hair at my wedding for myself, my mum and my 4 bridesmaids. I chose her because her content on instagram was exactly what I was after, she is a wizard with hair and I wanted a look that felt special and very bridal and Gemma DELIVERED.
All of my girls brought inspo pics on the day and all of them felt like the queens they are after Gemma had finished with them. I had my hair up, and we had a WINDY outdoor ceremony, the hair stayed put, the veil stayed on and it was perfect. My husband and I had quite an upbeat first dance and my dad and I did ‘The Routine’ from friends and not a hair fell out of place. Absolutely perfect!

Beyond being the best hairdresser, Gemma is a wonderful and kind soul, she brought peace on a hectic morning, she calmed nerves, captured some cute BTS moments with my mum and bridesmaids (which she sent me after the wedding in a mini reel and made me cry), she fit my veil, helped me into my dress (a whizz with those bridal buttons!! Didn’t even need the crochet hook I’d bought) and my shoes! Gemma knows weddings inside out and she ensured our morning went so smoothly and I am eternally grateful to her!

Book Gemma, it will be the best decision!! ♥️

Truly amazing

Gemma was fantastic! She made me & my mum feel beautiful & looked after!
Gemma stayed until I was leaving the room to walk down the aisle. She did those last minute touch ups. My hair & make up felt fresh & stayed perfect all day.
Whilst I was getting ready my now husband arrived early with his groomsmen which sent me into a bit of a panic but Gemma kept me calm & focused!

Best make up/hair artist ever!

Gemma helped with our wedding on 16/03/2024. Genuinely couldn't recommend more. From the first time we met at the trial to as she saw me down the aisle Gemma was absolutely flawless.

So helpful, professional, calm and made you feel at complete ease. With three bridesmaids, my mum and myself to do make up and hair, Gemma made everyone feel so confident and comfortable. Gemma also helped me into my dress (life saver).

If you are looking for a makeup/hair artist who not only does the most amazing job but will make you feel your most beautiful and confident then Gemma is artist for you. Nothing is too much trouble and brings the most calm and experienced energy to your wedding day. Highly recommend!!!!!!!!

Very professional, wealth of experience, outstanding service.

Im not one to wear a huge amount of make up but Gemma put my nerves and concerns to bed and made me feel very relaxed, I had a trial for hair and makeup and both discussed which styles suited me best.
I felt very confident after the trial knowing that on my wedding day Gemma would make me feel beautiful.
I felt at ease the whole entire time and she kindly stayed to help me into my wedding dress.
I would highly recommend Gemma for hair and make up services.

Fantastic Mua and personal and professional

Gemma made a difference to the whole day. She not only made the bride look amazing hair and make up, she kept her cool holding everything together and calm. Helped with her dress. Even saved the MOB who did her make up and made her look fantastic.

Professional and personable.
Thoroughly recommend.
