Working with brides to achieve the best version of themselves for their wedding day includes a comprehensive consultation and a dedication to each individual’s taste and style.

Michelle did my bridal make up for me and my bridesmaids as well as making our flower crowns. I can’t recommend her enough, highly professional, friendly and very talented! All flower crowns were made to an extremely high quality. Thank you for being part of our day.

Michelle is brilliant, I recommend her makeup services to all my brides. (I am a wedding photographer) and have worked alongside Michelle lots of times now. She always goes above and beyond and has such a caring gentle nature. She is extremely knowledgeable and knows all the best cruelty-free products.
If you are looking for natural, ethical and beautiful makeup for your special occasion she is your lady.

As a mature lady myself I can thoroughly recommend Michelle. I had a wonderful morning with her. She was such a relaxing presence, and my skin felt so lovely afterwards. I had asked her to ‘make me look like me, but better’ and she certainly did that. A brilliant experience from start to finish.
