Absolutely Amazing!

I cannot thank Emma enough for making me feel like an absolute queen on my wedding day! Emma provided a fantastic consultation before the big day which enabled us to try out make up and hair ideas that I had beforehand. I 100% recommend booking the consultation as this can iron out any problems or changes that need to be made before the big day. Emma listened to my ideas and provided me with exactly what I wanted on my big day.
Emma also provided hair and make up to one of my bridesmaids on the wedding day and I know she was over the moon too.
Emma was such a calming presence on the wedding day itself which was a massive help with everything else going on!
For anyone thinking of booking Emma.... DO IT! You will not be disappointed!

Above and beyond

I am so blessed to have found Makeup by Emma at a wedding fair in Swindon.

She was the perfect match not only in talent and what I was looking for in regards to makeup but also as a person.

Emma went above and beyond in making sure my bridesmaids some of who have severe allergies, were happy with the ingredients in the makeup and completed patch tests.

On the day Emma was calm and along with her friend and fellow makeup artist Pheobe did an amazing job getting 7 people’s makeup done efficiently and calmly keeping a stress free environment!

Emma even stayed and helped me with my dress which had a lot of fiddly buttons no one could seem to do up right, saving the day!!

I would highly recommend Emma to anyone and everyone

Thank you Emma so much ♥️

Would definitely recommend Emma

Emma did the makeup for myself and 5 bridesmaids earlier this month for my wedding. At the trial Emma was so attentive making sure I was happy at each step.

Any queries I had thereafter were swiftly a answered. Emma sent a schedule ahead of day with timings for the morning which made me feel really calm.

The day of our wedding was 30 degrees and very sweaty! Could not believe how intact all of make up was at the end of the day. It was really put to the test. I wanted a fairly natural look for the day and was so pleased with my make up.

Emma was lovely to have around on the morning and waited until we were about to leave just incase any touch-ups were needed. Two of the bridal party were so impressed with their make up that they will be making enquiries themselves.

I would definitely recommend Emma :) could not have been more pleased with the whole service.

Wedding make up

I was really nervous to get my make up done for my wedding. As someone who rarely wears it I didn't want to look like I had too much on, but at the same time wanted to look amazing for the day. Emma is so talented. Her knowledge and understanding of what suited me was spot on. The make up trial is a must to help you feel at ease and know what to expect. The morning of my wedding Emma turned up at my parents house and stayed right up until we left to go to the church. She made me and my bridesmaid feel so relaxed and the make up was incredible and even lasted until the last orders at the bar, well over 12 hours later! Thank you so much Emma! X

Emma was Amazing!

Emma was recommended to me by a friend and I'm so happy she was! The minute Mum and I met her for our trials, we knew we were in good hands. Emma was very welcoming and so much fun. Originally we had planned for my hair and makeup to be done and Mum's hair only. Mum loved my makeup so much that she also wanted hers done on the wedding day and this was no trouble to add onto our package after the trial. We laughed so much I don't know how we got anything done - it especially helped to make the morning of the wedding stress free. On the day, Emma was a treasure. Nothing was too much trouble, be it taking our keys and helping us into our cottages during an accommodation switch, or allowing some of my entourage to 'borrow' some extra hairspray! Emma was patient, and kind and even helped me source lipsticks and powders so my make up stayed perfect all day. I would highly recommend Emma if you're looking for a talented makeup artist in the Wiltshire/ Somerset area. Thank you, Emma, for a wonderful experience and helping to make my wedding so special. 🥰

Simply stunning!

Emma was the most perfect make up and hair artist! She was so lovely, which made me feel really relaxed and comfortable at every meeting. I met Emma at a wedding fair and I’m so glad I did. She took her time at my trial and we worked our way through my visions and spoke through all my options following this, nothing was too much trouble. Her approach to making sure it’s all as you wish is really thorough in comparison to others I know of. This was reflected in how I felt on our big day. I literally felt stunning all because of her. She listened to my desired look and made it happen. On the morning of the wedding her lovely nature meant that she helped keep me calm and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Emma you are amazing!

Friendly, professional, knowledgeable

Highly recommend Emma and Monique. They both did such a great job!
I requested a more ‘natural make up look’ and Emma was so knowledgeable.
I had three bridesmaids, One flower girl and mother of the bride and the pictures all came out stunning. Couldn’t be happier with the results! Thank you x

Amazing wedding make-up artist!

Emma was absolutely fantastic from the first email and call to the day itself. Emma was so lovely and knew so much and was so experienced! The trial was great, I was very vague in my ideas and she tried different options until I has really happy with the look she created. She was great at providing advice about face-care routine between the trial and the wedding to help with my skin.

She did make-up for myself and 5 bridesmaids on my wedding day. She was so lovely, chatty and relaxing to be around the morning of. She kept to an amazing timetable and everyone was so happy with the looks she created for everyone and it all stayed on so well for the whole day!

The calmest and most positive person to have on your wedding morning!

Emma did my mum’s hair and make up and my bridal hair on my wedding day. Yet even before this, amongst the stresses of wedding planning she made me for the first time feel like a bride at my trial, was so invested in our day and experiences we shared and my hair on the wedding day was everything I had dreamed of. Emma was such a calm and positive person to be around on the wedding morning and I very grateful for that!

May 2023 Wedding

I had Emma to do my makeup for my wedding. My practice run was during lambing and she was incredibly flexible in fitting me in at my busiest time of year. The wedding day went so smoothly and my makeup stayed on well - especially for how much I touch my face

Couldn't have asked for someone more calm and collected for my wedding day

Absolutely wonderful, cannot fault!

I met Emma at a wedding fayre, she immediately caught my eye with how beautiful, yet natural, her own make up looked and I knew instantly that Emma was exactly who I needed for our big day! Emma was absolutely amazing, very accommodating, patient, friendly. I couldn't have asked for anyone better and would highly recommend!

Wedding make up - Laura ❤️

Look no further. Emma was amazing and her make up skills are out of this world. I looked and felt like a princess all day. No touch ups was needed, however sent us off with a pot of lipstick if needed. For someone that very rarely wears make up and wasnt sure what I wanted. Emma got it spot on and I even got eyebrows 😂 She even took the time to send me a skincare routine in the run up to the day. A week before the day I was sent a plan, so we knew exactly who was having there make up done and at what time. Emma was punctual for both trial and on the day. She helped us keep to timings, she was calm, laid back and easy to talk too. Exactly what you need on a chaotic day. Emma didn't actually leave until we was in the cars on our way even though the make up was finished, she was still there to offer a helping hand. I cannot recommend this girl enough. Thankyou Emma ❤️
