I asked Elle to do my makeup for my wedding in August this year. I travelled to Bristol to have a makeup trial beforehand and Elle was very welcoming. She worked with exactly what I had in mind. On the wedding day, Elle made me feel so relaxed. My bridal makeup was absolutely gorgeous, better than I had imagined! The bridesmaids looked equally as gorgeous and we had a lot of complements on our makeup throughout the day. My makeup stayed on all day and long into the night! Thank you Elle for completing my wedding look. Do not hesitate to book this lovely makeup artist for your wedding make up, she will do a fabulous job!

When organising a wedding, so much emphasis goes on how on the bride will look. Rightly so, it is your day to shine all eyes on you.
As I made my way to Bristol to meet Elle for the trial I was instantly put at ease. Elle welcomed me with a beaming smile, a warm inviting setting and a serious make up brush set! The end result took my breath away, flawless and fabulous.
The day of the wedding I couldn’t have asked for more. Elle has a calming energy and was what I needed whilst I sipped champagne with butterflies in my stomach and excitement in the air. Everyone looked stunning, the make up was perfect for me, the bridesmaids and my Mum. The photos are magical, memories which will last a lifetime. I would recommend Elle to everyone, thank you so much.
I just had to drop you an email having watched the wedding video last night - what you do with a make up brush is pure genius!! Seriously Elle, I thought I was pretty good at doing my own make up, but I look stunning (even if I do say so myself!) - still like me, just better! Grace Kelly eat your heart out! Thank you so much. It was a joy to have you as part of my special day.
Elle did my wedding make up and for my bridesmaids too. From initial contact she was professional, and at the trial and on the day did an amazing job. My make up stayed in place all day, and my skin looked flawless, which it isn't! She is exceptional value for money, and my wedding photo's are a testament to that. My bridesmaids were thrilled with their make up, which was done to suit their individual looks. I am very pleased I booked Elle, and would highly recommend her.
Elle, what can I say... You were an absolute joy to meet. You completely understood the look I wanted and got it spot on at the trial. On the morning of the wedding you were so relaxed and I love how you individually worked with everyone to get a look to suit each bridesmaid. You were a really calm and fun person to have around and my make up really was exactly what I wanted, not typical of the usual wedding look. Really unique. You made me feel amazing so thank you so much. I couldn't recommend you more highly.
