“Eleanor was a brilliant make-up artist for my wedding, and I was extremely pleased with the final result. She was incredibly patient in the weeks running up to it, trying out several different looks. On the day she was unflappable and professional; I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.” Jane Smedley

Eleanor is a professionally trained bridal make-up artist based in Gloucestershire and London. She creates glowing, flattering bridal make-up for clients in The Cotswolds, London and also destination weddings.
Bridal make-up should be timeless, rather than trendy. Years from now you should look back on your wedding photos and still love how you looked. Eleanor favours products by Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown, Chantecaille and Hourglass, so skin looks lit from within and youthful, never shiny or harsh. Eyes are enhanced, contour is blended and natural, and lips complete the look. Her bridal make up is soft and has the effect of a flattering candle-glow on the wearer.
As well as being beautiful and long-lasting, bridal make-up should be bespoke to you, your style, and the overall aesthetic of your wedding. Eleanor works closely with clients, through a bridal make-up trial on a day and time of your choosing, to create custom bridal make-up looks which make you feel your most beautiful.
Having worked on London Fashion Week, Eleanor’s make up kit is second to none. She is attentive and calm under pressure – an unflappable pair of hands to entrust your wedding make-up look to. Her brides are rightly the absolute spotlight on their big days. She creates make-up for the whole bridal party, including flattering make-up for bridesmaids and the mother-of-the-bride, as well as complimentary sparkles and lip gloss for any flower girls.
Please get in touch with details of your day (date, number for make-up and the location) for a bridal make-up quote. Questions, make-up advice or other requests are always welcome. Eleanor works primarily as a bridal make-up artist in Gloucestershire, the Cotswolds and London areas. However, she is always happy to travel further for clients.
