“Thank you for the beautiful makeup looks you created for my wedding day. You listened to exactly what I asked and created the “just polished’ version of myself I had been after. My bridesmaids looked just stunning and I think you know how much it meant to Lyndsey when she cried with joy at the end result! It was lovely having you there in the morning. Your chilled, friendly personality was just what we all needed ☺ I’d also like to say that I was impressed with your professionalism and organisation which I found particularly containing on the lead up to the wedding.” Holly Banfield
“Bryony is such a lovely friendly person to have around on the morning of your wedding day during the important preparations...not to mention a true magician with make up. She had a challenge on her hands after I had spent the previous day hanging over the toilet bowl with a dreadful sickness bug. Needless to say she was reassuring and went far beyond making me look human again; I felt like a superstar and that was largely down to this ladies amazing talent with make up brushes. Thanks Bryony for transforming my mother, bridesmaids and me- you were amazing!” Rachel Morley
“Bryony is absolutely fantastic, from the moment i met Bryony i knew she was the makeup artist for me and my wedding :) she was very professional yet friendly and calming. I never wear makeup but Bryony knew exactly what would work for me, i never thought i would look as good as Bryony made me look and feel. Would highly recommend to anyone and will definitely use again!!” Vicky Ellis
“Bryony is a true professional in every sense. She is an absolute expert in make up and has a friendly and professional manner that makes you feel totally at ease. She did a perfect job of mine and my mum's make up. I particularly love that she uses all brands so that she is able to pick the absolute best products for the particular individual. Don't hesitate in booking, she is the best!” Ella Hodgkins
“I met Bryony for the first time on Friday for my make-up trial prior to my wedding. Bryony is a lovely, friendly person! She created my perfect wedding look right from the word go, I explained what I was after and she created it first time! I didn't want to take my make-up off at the end of the day. I cannot recommend Bryony enough, and that is before the wedding, so I can't wait to see what the finished look is going be! Also want to book in for a make-up lesson too! Thank you Bryony!” Alex Williams
“I couldn't recommend Bryony more highly, she's been wonderful right from the start. So many wedding suppliers focus on the day only, and Bryony was communicative and kind and friendly through the whole process from first contact through to the big day itself. I hadn't really thought until the day got closer that make-up artists see you for a significant part of your wedding day, so feeling at ease with them as people as well as their make-up skills is vital - and Bryony made that so easy. And the make-up itself was amazing! I wear make-up every day so was a bit worried that I wasn't going to feel different enough for it to be special, and I needn't have worried - I felt beautiful and very special indeed. And the touch-up kit was so thoughtful and a real treat - not that I needed it!” Clare Darby
“Thank you so much Bryony for your wonderful work doing my make up on our wedding day. I was quite apprehensive about make up for the wedding, as I'm not a big make up girl and not at all confident in knowing what looks good, plus I wanted to look natural and didn't know if this was really possible (having had a very heavy trial elsewhere!). However, as soon as I met Bryony, I felt completely at ease. She listened to what I wanted and nailed it first time! The trial was relaxing and enjoyable, and on the day Bryony was professional, kind and super helpful, going above and beyond what I expected (including helping me and my bridesmaids into our dresses at the last minute!). Bryony helped make me feel really beautiful but still "like me". Have been since been dropping heavy hints to my new husband about her make up lessons for my birthday this year! Thanks again - highly recommended!”
"Bryony is amazing, she is a lovely talented and positive person, I'm so happy to have met her. I would love the opportunity to have her do my makeup again in the future. My opinion of the wedding world is that bridal trends can be quite dated, but Bryony is not conforming to that tradition, her makeup is modern and she really understands the makeup world. I had two trials as I wanted to try a few foundations due to my skin being oily, Bryony was so helpful and I really loved my makeup on the day. She did the makeup for my three bridesmaids and was able to recommend a look that would compliment their dresses. Don't hesitate and book a trial you won't regret it"
"Bryony is quite simply a lovely lady and the make up artist every bride needs on her big day. From my initial enquiry she was quick to respond to emails, nothing was too much trouble. My mum, matron of honour and I spent a lovely couple of hours with her having our trial, she asked lots of questions and listened to what we wanted, she really knows her stuff and we were absolutely delighted with our finished looks. On the day she was a wonderfully calm presence, she definitely helped us all have a fun relaxed morning getting ready, which set the tone for the rest of the day. We were all delighted with how we looked and the make up lasted the day, helped by the touch up kit she provided! She is a amazing and I can’t recommend her highly enough. Thank you Bryony, you’re a star!"
"Bryony did my make up for my wedding day at the end of February (2016) and I was so delighted with the results. She was so lovely from day dot, responding to my emails promptly and I could tell from our first email that we were going to get along. At the trial stage I had no idea what I wanted, she was patient and knowledgeable and ultimately took control and I was stunned by the look she presented me with. On the day the make up was as crucial to how amazing I felt as the dress and I felt the best ever. Bryony did my 6 bridesmaids make up too, she worked so hard and we were all ready bang on time. She is a true professional and a genuinely lovely person"
“Amazing I had compliments all day on my wedding makeup. I had my make up done first thing and even people arriving at 8pm for our reception were so complimentary even assuming I'd had it topped up for the evening. A lovely, friendly lady too."
Bryony, thank you so much for being so amazing from start to finish! From the moment I met you at my trial I felt completely at ease, I didn't know what sort of look I wanted so I said do whatever you think will suit me and it was absolutely perfect!! On the morning of the wedding, needless to say I was very nervous, but once again you helped me to feel relaxed and it was such a lovely morning getting ready with all my bridesmaids, mum and mum to be! I had so many lovely compliments for my makeup throughout the day (and night!) and the bridesmaids and mums were also extremely happy with their makeup too! The quality of the finish you gave all of us was outstanding - I would recommend Bryony to anyone, what an amazing lady and makeup artist! From a very happy bride, Mrs Styles.”
“Thank you so much Bryony! Myself and my Bridesmaids absolutely loved our make- up, we had comments all day on how amazing it was and I couldn't believe how long it lasted for, I only needed to touch up my lipstick a couple of times and that was it! We had such a fun morning getting ready with you too! You really did create the exact look that I wanted for my special day, I can't thank you enough and will definitely be highly recommending you to others! You even managed to disguise the fact that I was a very tired and 5 months pregnant Bride so discreetly!”
“Bryony had to deal with not one but two brides on our best day ever! Plus our beautiful daughter Mia aged 14. Cherryl and I are very different in our choice of make up and Bryony instantly put us at ease with her professionalism and flare. I joked with her on out trials that Cherryl and I wanted to look 10 years younger and our daughter Mia 10 years older, well she certainly surpassed herself. We loved her honesty and gentle approach and she managed to make all three of us complement each other with our tones and colours. What a wonderful experience from start to finish and when I say finish we still looked amazing at 1pm when we all finally hung up our dancing shoes!”

"It can be pretty daunting trying to find a makeup artist for your wedding day. After all the planning, hard work and effort (and tiredness!) you just want to look your absolute best. I was so lucky to have found Bryony who from the start was just a total joy to be around. Not only is she a consummate professional who instantly gives you that warm fuzzy 'she totally has this covered - one less thing to worry about' feeling but she does so with her warm and smiley personality. In short she's a total star and I couldn't be more grateful. I was really nervous for the trial because I wasn't sure what makeup I wanted but I knew I really needed that million dollar feeling on my wedding day. Bryony really listened to me and I went for the first look we did (and I am really fussy on the eye shadow part and false lashes eeek!). On my wedding day it was really busy getting ready, the suppliers were all running around trying to do their best for us and asking questions while I was having my makeup done. Bryony was so smiley and supportive during this time and really put me at ease. I really did feel absolutely amazing on my special day which is how it should be. My Mum and Bridesmaids were all super happy also! All of our makeup looked incredible and lasted all day during the heat and I found that the only top up I needed was after the meal and was my lippy (which I had as Bryony leaves you a fab little pack girls) so I was free to mingle with our guests and party the night away. The girls, Mum and I loved it so much we went back for a makeup lesson which was so useful and fun! Bryony - I will never be able to thank you enough for doing such a wonderful job from start to finish! You are one special lady. Wishing you all the very best in the future. Joules”

"Bryony, thank you so much for doing our wedding make up, everyone looked so beautiful and our make up stayed perfect all day and night through the tears/laughter etc... You were so lovely and just a joy to be around! Im so pleased I came across you and booked you for the wedding you really are very talented at what you do!”
"Having Bryony do my wedding make up was amazing! The whole process from booking to trial to the day itself was easy. On my wedding day it felt like Bryony was one of my friends just getting ready with us. It was a brilliant start to an amazing day. My make up lasted all day and looked stunning in photos, I received so many compliments even from guests who arrived in the evening! One of my bridesmaids had problematic skin and Bryony was able to deal with it so she looked amazing all day as well!”
“I love this lady... Bryony you are a star! You made myself feel a beautiful bride on my day and the bridesmaids looked amazing. Thank you so so much for doing our make up and making us look and feel amazing. I can't recommend her enough she knows exactly what you want. I loved my day and thanks to you my photos are fab!”
"I just wanted to get in touch to say thank you SO much for creating my dream look for my wedding day, and not just that really - thank you for being so fun to chat to over emails with, for your patience during my make up trials and for genuinely sharing in my excitement. I will miss our chats! Oh and for the heap of beauty recommendations you gave me too! I loved that time with you getting ready and I loved, loved, loved my make up! We really did have the most amazing day, and my make up stayed on till the bitter end! Even after my Dad giving my a bear hug after the ceremony and a lot coming off on his suit, ha. My Mum looked so beautiful and you got her make up spot on - I'm biased, but I think she looked the best MOTB ever! Now...I just need to think of another excuse to get my make up done by you! You're so talented Bryony - best make up artist EVER!”
“I have never been great with make up and was nervous about chatting with Bryony about the look I wanted for my 'Big' day! But I needn't have worried! She put me at ease immediately with her friendly yet professional manner and most importantly she just listened! My make up was stunning! It lasted all day and night and didn't budge or smudge an inch! Everyone commented on my flawless complexion and smokey eyes! I didn't even need the lovely 'top up kit' she gave me! I can't thank you enough Bryony! Make up is such a personal thing and now I'd like you to do mine every Saturday!”
Lucy Jay Leech
“I don't wear any make-up on a daily basis so wasn't sure if I wanted anything for my wedding day but I figured I would give the trail a go then decide. From the very first meeting,even before my trial, Bryony put me at ease and I knew she understood what I wanted. On the day she was brilliant and the make-up was better than in the trial. She also did my mum's make-up which looked great. Overall a fab experience.”
“On behalf of all four of my bridesmaids, my flower girl and myself, I'd like to share that Bryony is an amazing make up artist!! We all agree that of course she is very highly skilled in applying make up (and this recommendation comes from a variety of girls including teenagers, and those of us who are 30+) but not only that, she is extremely professional, calm and fabulous at managing time on a busy wedding day! At my trial, she made product recommendations that were great matches for my skin and planned the most beautiful make up. She even had the patience to deal with endless emails from me discussing the perfect lip colour! On the wedding day, she applied our make up at our hair salon (as planned) but then accompanied us to the venue, staying with us right up to just before the ceremony to do last minute touch ups. She also supplied us with a touch up kit to reapply lipstick late into the night! I would wholeheartedly recommend Bryony as a make up artist (and key wedding party member!) to any bride to be or for any other special occasion. You need her as part of your entourage!”
“Bryony is an absolute superstar! I had the best experience with my wedding make up from the trial through to the big day to seeing the result of it all on our wedding photos at the end. I wish I could look as good everyday as I did by the time Bryony had finished with me. If you are looking for makeup for any occasion I cannot recommend Bryony enough.”
“Bryony is great, she did the make up for me and my bridesmaid at our wedding in March 2015. Professional, calm and patient. She did a great job and my wedding make-up lasted all day long! Even with loads of dancing! I would highly recommend her for both brides and bridesmaids as she managed to suit the make-up to girls with very different complexions, hair and styles."
"I got in touch with Bryony after being recommended her by a friend of mine who got married last year and had her as her make up artist. I loved how my friend Katie's make up looked in the photos and could immediately tell the difference between a professional doing it and my original plan of doing it myself. Bryony was great fun to be around on the day, she put me at ease and worked so hard to make sure we were all ready on time. She was so happy to be there and made everyone feel a million dollars. Everyone needs Bryony on their big day. You are a superstar, Thank you!”
“Bryony did the make up for myself, 2 bridesmaid's and my mum on the morning of my wedding. From the minute I met Bryony I knew she was the perfect choice - everything at the trial was really relaxed and friendly, and the result looked lovely & natural which was just what I was after. Bryony's style immediately puts you at ease and it felt very natural and really enjoyable having our make up done. We all have different styles and Bryony did a wonderful job of everyone's makeup - we were all thrilled and the make up really lasted the day and evening. I would definitely recommend Bryony."
“Thank you Bryony for being the ultimate beauty queen for us all on my wedding day (June 2015). From the onset of meeting you me and my bridesmaids were totally in ore of your never ending knowledge of beauty products, I literally could have picked your brains all day and am still dreaming about your make up kit bag. We all looked and felt fabulous all day and my new hubby was very happy when he saw his new wife walking down the aisle”
“Bryony was an absolute gem! So easy to work with and I felt confident and special. I wouldn't go to anybody else now, she became a big part of my special day, and I recommend Bryony in a heartbeat! The make up she uses is high end and Bryony obviously has trained in an array of techniques with many products, the beauty being that she has worked with most products and can advise you what to use for your own personal taste and skins etc."
"I have always enjoyed applying my own makeup and to be honest I was a little nervous about having someone else do it. However, Bryony was absolutely fantastic, listening carefully to all of my thoughts and ideas and spending time with me until I was left with a result I could never achieve in my wildest dreams. I am so grateful to her for this reassurance and the relief of being able to trust someone to prepare me for the most important day of my life. So friendly, so helpful and amazing results lasting all day that were exactly what I had envisioned."
Natalie Woodcock Bryony was absolutely amazing and her make up is quite simply stunning! She really listened to my brief and created a beautiful look for myself and my bridesmaids beyond my expectations. Bryony was so warm, calm and fun and did our make up so elegantly which looked fantastic in photographs. I couldn't recommend her highly enough!"
“Bryony is a miracle worker! Not only did she provide us with beautiful make up, she also managed to make us feel great for the wedding day. As a bride who is very conscious about her skin, she made me look and feel amazing. Bryony worked with 7 people on my day and did it with character and professionalism. If you are looking for a make up artist, i would definitely use her. Thanks so much for making me shine on my wedding day."
"I found Bryony through the recommendation of the hair stylist that I booked, Grace Tunesi, who assured me that Bryony was the best person in the make up artist business that she knew, and she was absolutely right! I am so glad that I booked my makeup to be done by Bryony, she was an absolute professional and so helpful from the very start, from arranging the trial with me, to everything on the big day. I had a trial with Bryony for my own makeup, and then on the day she did myself and my 4 bridesmaids. Bryony got all of us done in really good time, and all 5 of us were stunned with the results, everyone looked absolutely incredible! Also it is worth mentioning that she is a really a lovely person, so on the day we all had a great chat and laugh whilst getting ready - so important and it meant that it was the perfect relaxed getting-ready session. Bryony puts you completely at ease, I could not have imagined anything about the whole process to have gone better, not to mention how many compliments I received on the day!
“Bryony stood out from the other make up artists as her make up style is utterly stunning. Overall the look she provides is perfect for photo finish, but in person the effect looks effortlessly beautiful. She has a naturally relaxed demeanour , which is perfect for keeping things calm on the big day. An important point for me was that Bryony only uses the best make up brands such as M.A.C or Bobbi Brown which has a luxurious feel on the skin. The gorgeous little touch up kit she provided had everything I needed to keep me looking fresh throughout the day. Thank you again Bryony!"
“Bryony did my make up for my wedding last week. Arrived exactly on time so there was no need to stress. Each product was expertly applied and Bryony was the ultimate professional. She also did my daughter's make up who was keen not to look too overly made up. We both looked absolutely fabulous and the make up lasted from 10am (I was getting married at 11) until midnight. No touching up was required. I would highly recommend Bryony for any occasion.”
“I booked in for a make up lesson with Bryony ahead of a month full of christmas parties in December 2015. I felt completely stuck in a rut with my make up and found make up shopping stressful. Bryony is completely brand neutral with a vast range of brands in her kit, it felt like she brought the beauty department to me in her case of tricks and knowing she's not pressured by wanting to sell me anything I knew all recommendations were totally genuine. Bryony was patient with me and my lack of make up skills and taught me how to apply make up to achieve a look that was gorgeous but also realistic for me to recreate at home. I have recommended Bryony's lessons to all my friends, I just wish I had done it sooner!”
"Bryony was recommended by a friend and after a disappointing experience with my first trial (another makeup artist), Bryony put me at ease, made me comfortable and worked her magic ! She is a complete professional. I loved my makeup for my wedding- I still felt like me, but a much better version of me! I wish I could steal her away to sort me out every morning !! Bryony recently did my sister in laws makeup for her wedding- she made up the whole wedding party- everyone looked beautiful and flawless, on your big day Bryony is a calm and relaxed presence. I wouldn't advise anyone to get married without her!"
“Bryony did the make up for my wedding in May 2013. She was a calming influence on the day. Her make up is beautiful and the products she uses are of the highest quality. She is a true talent. She also did such an amazing job on my three bridesmaids and my mum. We loved her so much my sister wanted to have her as her make up artist for her wedding day. I will continue to recommend Bryony to anyone looking for an amazing, reliable and all round calming influence to have with you on you’re special day.”
“Bryony did my make-up for our wedding in May 2013, and my mum's and my bridesmaid's. She interpreted exactly what style I was hoping to achieve which meant that no changes were needed from our trial run to the day itself. One of the things I liked the most was the fact that Bryony uses the best products from a variety of top quality ranges so you have plenty to choose from. On the day itself she was so calm, kind and relaxed she put everyone at ease and it is testament to her skill that my make-up looked as good as when it was first applied at 01.00 AM after several hours of dancing! I was so comfortable with Bryony, and happy with the results, that I have recommended her to one of my best friends who is getting married later this year!”
“My wedding was in May 2014. Bryony did a trial before my wedding. I described the look I wanted and Bryony used her skills to create a wonderful look on the basis of my wishes. On the wedding day Bryony arrived on time and did my make up beautifully - it was flawless. The make up was top quality and it lasted the whole day. She is a true professional who is organised, calm and very skilled. I would not hesitate to recommend Bryony to my friends or anyone else looking for bridal make up."
“Bryony did the make up for me, my two bridesmaids and my mum for my wedding in June 2014. We all really enjoyed Bryony's company on the day, she was fun and a wealth of experience when it came to time management in getting us all ready something without her we definitely would have been totally lost with. Her kit is to die for, we all spent many hours both at the trial and on the day swooning over all her lotions and potions and asking her so many questions about what she was doing! We have all spent a fortune on make up since meeting you I am sure. I was so pleased with all the make up you did, the girls all looked gorgeous and my mum looked so happy and radiant. Cant wait to get our photos back to see it all again! Thank you so much Bryony!”
"Bryony did the make up for my wedding in July 2014 for me and my 3 bridesmaids. We were all so impressed with the whole service Bryony provided, she was organised and efficient throughout all our emails from the first point of contact. I hadn't had anyone do my make up before but Bryony instantly put me at ease during the trial. I have absolutely no idea when it comes to make up and so I left Bryony to it and was so overwhelmed by how effortlessly she made me look so much better, everything was just more enhanced but I still felt like me. On the day Bryony arrived on time and worked brilliantly with our hair stylist to get us ready on time. I hadn't even thought of getting a make up artist before until a friend of mine suggested it but I am so glad I got in touch with Bryony, my make up looks perfect in all the photos! Thank you!"
“Bryony thank you so so much for all your hard work on the morning of my wedding last month (July 2014), we were a big bridal party and things in the hotel room were a little more chaotic than I would have liked but you provided an air of calm and we all felt and looked beautiful after leaving your chair. Everyone loved their make up, in fact we all headed out the other night for our first girls night out since I got back from my honeymoon and we all said how much we wished you were there to make us up every time we went out! Everyone needs a Bryony! Thanks for being wonderful!"
“Bryony did my daughters make up on her wedding day in August this year (2014) and mine. We were both so impressed with her calm and professional manner on the day, she was perfectly on time and worked promptly meaning there was no manic rush at the last minute and Michelle could relax and enjoy getting into her dress. As a 60 year old woman she applied my make up appropriately and beautifully for a woman of my age, my skin looked radiant and fresh and I felt the best I have done in years! Michelle looked every inch the beautiful bride and there wasn't a single dry eye in the church! Thank you!"
“I found Bryony through word of mouth, I was in the middle of a little crisis about my make up. Bryony was simply amazing from start to finish! Make up is something I didn't know much about and didn't know what I wanted for my wedding day but Bryony made it simple and enjoyable process. She listened to all my maids, some had exacting ideas of what they wanted, others went with the flow and Bryony was able to handle us all beautifully from trial to wedding day. Me wedding day look was me, but on a really good day, it felt amazing and lasted all day. Bryony generously provided a little touch up kit which I did try and remember to use, not that I needed to. I look back on my wedding day pictures and I am so pleased I didn't try and do my make up myself, I didn't realise how much emotion and adrenaline would kick in, even at 7 in the morning, and wouldn't have been able to achieve any where near the look that Bryony gave me. Thank you Bryony, we had our most perfect day!!"
“With a bride and four bridesmaids, Bryony was fantastic at advising and really listening to everyone’s varying make up requests. She took the time to make sure every member was immaculately finished to such a high standard. Bryony had a fabulous array of make up and was such great fun to have around, really making us laugh and making everyone so happy with their make up! I couldn’t recommend Bryony highly enough as we all dream of looking fabulous on such a big day and she exceeded this! What I particularly appreciated was her ability to create a natural yet glamorous look that lasted all day!”
“Bryony did the make-up for me and my sister on my wedding day in December 2014. We both loved our make-up and it stayed put all day and night despite a fair few tears during the speeches! I’d definitely recommend Bryony as your wedding make-up artist as she is very professional, calm (essential on your wedding morning!) and skilled!"
