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.
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
