Every bride should look and feel beautiful, confident and most importantly be truly themselves 

It's a  Love Story ....

Congratulations on your engagement!

You deserve to look and feel gorgeous on your special day. It's important to me that you feel more beautiful than ever! My bridal makeup services are more than just makeup application, it's a collaboration between you, your vision and my artistry. I want you to feel like the most beautiful version of you.

Your experience with me goes beyond just makeup application. I'm here for you with guidance and knowledge throughout your bridal journey. I know your wedding morning can feel vulnerable with lots of overwhelming emotions, so I take pride in being the calming and supportive help you need to ensure you can sit back and enjoy your morning relaxing and making memories with your nearest and dearest. 

My signature style ....

With my time working with brides, I've perfected my signature style. Inspired by my favourite editorial sunkissed skin & being coined the 'blush queen'  my iconic bridal skin was born - The perfect blend of radiant, blushed, lit-from-within skin that feels lightweight and fresh, photographs flawlessly, and lasts all day long.

With a focus on soft glam, that ensures a timeless and elegant touch to your bridal vision. 

My distinct style works harmoniously with my ethics in which every bridal makeup is bespoke, a collaboration approach in which we create a look that is authentic to you because the most beautiful version of you is being truly you. 

My Modern effortless soft waves and effortless clean updos ensure true elegance.

The Process 

Booking, consultation and your design appointment 

Think we’re a perfect match for your makeup dreams? It’s time to get in touch! Fill out my consultation form or send me an email with all the details about your big day. I’ll then send you a brochure with package options, extra information, and a quote, including a mock-up time schedule. This will help determine if one of my trusted assistants is needed on your wedding morning, ensuring no hidden costs.

A signed contract and a non-refundable deposit are required to confirm your booking.

Each of my brides gets a phone call upon booking to discuss skincare. Starting a good skincare routine at least a year before your wedding ensures you look and feel your best, maximizing the results of your bridal makeup. You’ll also receive a bridal prep brochure to share with your bridal party, complete with my top tips.

I recommend scheduling your design appointment (trial) 4-12 weeks before your big day, either at my home studio or I can come to you.  This is where the magic happens! During this session, I’ll get to know you and learn all about your wedding plans. Together, we’ll take our time collaborating to create your perfect bridal hair and makeup look.

We will go through any mood-boards or makeup images you have. With my professional knowledge I will suggest what will suit your skin type and face shape as well as what colours will suit your skin tone and eye colour. We will also discuss what makeup you wear on a normal day which we can then adapt to your bridal look which is perfect for brides who want a more natural look. 

When applying your makeup, I will talk through exactly what I am doing to make sure your absolutely comfortable throughout. I will check that you're happy at every stage and will tweak until your 100% happy and in love with your bridal look. 

Once we have found your bridal look, I will take photos and detailed notes to document every part of your makeup. I will then be in contact once I've worked out timings and discuss a schedule to ensure your morning is nice and calm, so all you have to worry about is enjoying your last minutes as a Miss with your bridal party.

Your Wedding day 

& your bridal party 

You and your girls deserve to feel beautiful on your special day! Your bridal party is made up of your chosen loved ones, so it's important to me that they look and feel their best too. Whether you want your bridesmaids' makeup to match yours or allow them to choose their own styles, I will provide guidance on what suits them best and tailor products to their skin types to ensure long-lasting makeup.

Gifting makeup application to your Mum and Mother-in-law is a wonderful way to make them feel special and involved. Given the emotional nature of the day, having their makeup done can help them remain calm and relaxed. While they might initially be nervous, I take great care to discuss their preferences and ensure they are comfortable.

For flower girls or bridesmaids under 7 who want to join in the fun, I offer a complimentary application of lip gloss or lipstick and a touch of blush to make them feel extra special.

Your wedding morning can be filled with emotions, but I’ll be there to guide you through it all. A confirmed schedule, sent a month in advance, will ensure everything runs smoothly. Everyone will be ready an hour to an hour and a half before the ceremony, allowing time for photos and those precious final moments with your loved ones. I'll be on hand until the last minute to help with finishing touches, ensuring you walk down the aisle as the bride you've always imagined

Love Notes 

I had the pleasure of having Olivia as my make up artist for my wedding day. She was professional from the very start, from our first consultation, right the way through to the finishing touches on the day! Olivia also did make up for my Mum and maid of honour, both of whom were beyond thrilled with the results.

I feel exceptionally lucky to have found Olivia; I am someone who suffers with a severe lack of confidence but I felt so perfect on my wedding day and that was down to her. Her attention to detail, calming nature and amazing skill tied everything together.

I cannot recommend her highly enough! I would pay ten times what she charges because she is worth her weight in gold - Katherine 

Why choose Olivia?

I love a love story and the one I dont want you to forget about on your wedding journey is the one with yourself. I truly believe in creating the bridal version of YOU rather then you transforming into a bride. There should be no pressure about looking like a bride in vogue magazine or filtered AI images on social media. My job is important and one I take much pride in because its celebrating you and sometimes this process takes you on a journey of loving yourself. We all know how it feels to be insecure or pick apart our self image. On your wedding day I want you to feel and look beautiful being you. There's nothing better than witnessing that moment when my bride stares at their reflection; their shoulder's relax, eyes moisten, and  face beams. Their insecurities fade away when they  realise that the woman staring back at  who radiates beauty is themselves .

My highly industry recognised training and experience in TV, editorial and commercial as well as doing hundred's of weddings ensures I have extensive knowledge in long lasting makeup and hair that photographs beautifully and looks flawless in person while feeling lightweight and comfortable to wear. My kit includes my favourite products and brands that work with a range of skin tones and and skin types... some which I can't live without. My secret application techniques make your makeup dreams a reality, delivering stunning results that last from morning till night.

Your experience is incredibly important to me. I believe every little girl dreams of her wedding day, imagining how beautiful and special she will feel. I want you to experience that dream in reality. Known for providing the calm presence every bride needs on her wedding morning, I take pride in creating the perfect atmosphere for you—whether you desire a serene and tranquil environment or a carefree space where the celebration can begin early. I genuinely care about my brides and am dedicated to being your safe space throughout your entire journey.
