To be given the opportunity to design a bride’s makeup on the biggest day of her life is such a privilege. Whether your desired look is a soft natural beauty, a golden goddess glow, or something a little more individual, I have all the skills to make you shine and look incredible on the day and in front of the cameras. I am always happy to chat things through and discuss any ideas you might have prior to booking a trial with me, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
” I couldn’t have been happier on my wedding day! Given that I am prone to allergic reactions to makeup, Ella was calm, flexible and professional in helping me design and perfect my makeup for our special day. Having a trial with Ella made me confident that, despite my temperamental skin, everything was going to be perfect. I can’t thank Ella enough for providing such a relaxed and personalised service! ”
How does it work?
Choosing your wedding makeup is almost as important as picking your dress, which is why I believe a pre-wedding trial is a must. It is so important to make sure you look and feel your best, and it’s a great way to see how different products work and last on your skin. It gives us the opportunity to chat about your wedding day, and helps me to build a picture of the look you are after.
A trial can be at a location of your choice to suit you and can include any friends/family that may be part of the bridal party or just there for advice. I usually allow around 2 hours for the bride and another couple of hours depending on the size of your bridal party. If you have any pictures of makeup designs you love, it’s a good idea to bring them along.
Once we are happy with the look, I will note down the products and techniques we used and also take some photos to accompany the notes. That way, it is easy to recreate your chosen look on your wedding day.
On the day
On the day of your wedding my aim is to make sure you feel pampered, calm and confident. I will arrive at your chosen venue with plenty of time to set up. Makeup application will take around 1 hour for the bride and 30-45 mins per person in the bridal party. I will apply makeup to the bridal party first and the bride last, so that it remains as fresh as possible. I suggest having everyone’s makeup completed around an hour before the ceremony so you are left with enough time for touch ups, getting into your dress, having photographs taken (and maybe enjoying that last glass of champagne).
My kit includes products from Charlotte Tilbury, Mac, Bobbi Brown, Urban Decay, Nars & Benefit. I am of course fully insured.
Please get in touch if you have any further questions or would like to book a pre-wedding trial with me. I am available for weddings any day of the week. I really look forward to meeting with you and chatting about your big day.
