to Carter Hair & Make up

Hiya, I'm Holly Carter, an award-winning (woohoo!) makeup artist and hairstylist based in Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire. I have many years experience in the wedding industry and I've always been a true sucker for romance. I understand the deep connection between looking and feeling amazing on your wedding day and I'd love to be the one to create that incredible feeling for you. 

Check out my galleries to see my past couples as well as some of the kind words my brides have shared. 

What I offer...

I use a variety of luxury brands in my kit to provide makeup and hairstyling services as well as a selection of beautiful handmade faux hair flowers to finish your look should you wish. I specialise in creating glowing, romantic and elegant looks that will have you feeling like the most gorgeously confident version of you. Now let's have a chat and create your dream wedding hair & makeup look!

Nerves be gone! 

It's so important to me that you feel 100% comfortable and confident in your own skin as I know a wedding day can be quite an anxious time for a lot of brides, amongst the excitement there are a lot of other emotions involved. All eyes on you does not have to be a daunting thought, and it won't be, I promise. 


Throughout the process I will spend my time really getting to know you and how you wish to feel and look on your day. I welcome you to openly discuss any concerns or insecurities you have with me. During your trial and on the day I will give you a relaxing mini facial with some beautiful high end products, to help you unwind before we get started on your dream look. 

I don't want you to feel intimidated by or worried about the hair and makeup side of your wedding, You will be in safe hands with me. I will work with what you are happy with and together find a style that is perfect for you. There is no cut cloth version of a Bride and I never want you to feel that you don't "fit in". This is supposed to be and will be a very exciting part of the planning process!

Holly was absolutely incredibly throughout the wedding journey. She is super talented, friendly, trustworthy and was a joy to have on the morning of the wedding. I didn't have an exact idea of what I wanted but gave Holly some rough thoughts and what she came up with for both my hair and make up was so beautiful, I couldn't have been happier. She is a real perfectionist and will make any bride feel amazing on their day. Thank you again Holly x
