" Turning EVERYDAY you
into BRIDAL you"
Imagine feeling and looking like your authentic self, but with a touch of extra beauty, class, and elegance. That's where I come in! I'm Holly, the face behind Carter Hair & Makeup, and my specialty is creating a look that effortlessly mixes your natural charm with a hint of fun.
“Holly is an exceptional hair stylist and make-up artist. She is able to seamlessly blend the two, to create a whole look that beautifully enhances your own style and persona.
Holly doesn't just take the time to understand what you want to look and feel like on your Wedding Day, but she also takes the time to understand who you are”

You, but bridal...
Together we can make sure your special day reflects your unique style in a subtle and elegant way.
With me you can expect to feel truly relaxed, supported and reassured throughout your Bridal hair and makeup choices. It's my job to take all the stress away from you, by helping you gain confidence in all aspects of your appearance.
“Holly was absolutely amazing not just on the trial and wedding day but the build up to the wedding too. She made me feel so settled and made sure everything ran smoothly on the day”
- Natasha, married at Gosfield Hall, Essex
I'll be there for you...
Throughout the process, I will offer valuable tips, advice, and uplifting support. Although you won't have done this before (usually) I have! As part of my service I cover everything you need from booking to the day and will have it all planned right until you walk down the aisle. I'll even share my favorite wedding morning playlist (brace yourself for anything from 80's rock through to 00's pop)
“Holly is so attentive and caring. She made me feel so confident and beautiful every step of the way”
- Sophie, married at Milling Barn, Hertfordshire
I can't wait to chat, giggle, laugh and cry (happy tears of course) with you throughout your wedding planning. You'll feel like a friend is doing your hair and makeup.
By the time you walk down the aisle, I will have you glowing with happiness inside and out and I can't wait to turn the EVERYDAY you into the BRIDAL you.
“If you’re trying to find an artist who is going to listen, understand, support and champion you to feel the best version of yourself, I really wouldn’t bother looking any further.”
- Lotte, married at Sandon Manor, Hertfordshire
I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to Holly on my behalf, my mum and my bridesmaids for getting us ready on my wedding day!
From the start you took the time to listen and understand how I hoped to look on the day. You knew all the right questions to ask throughout my trial, right down to the smaller details - it really showed how much you cared about not only achieving the look I was after but how I'd feel on the day.
I was absolutely glowing on the day, you made me feel like I was naturally beautiful - I felt radiant inside and outside and honestly couldn't stop smiling.
Holly is so talented, down to earth, chatty and just all round lovely! I would highly recommend to any bride who wants to feel the best they've ever felt in themselves on their wedding day.
