"I would highly recommend Gemma, she asked me how I would like my make up and hair. She listened to my needs and offered her advice and opinions. I felt welcome, relaxed and ready to celebrate my special occasion . The hair and make up she executed was everything I wanted, I hardly recognised myself when I looked in the mirror. I would definitely use Gemma again and I will recommend her to all my friends and family." 5 out of 5".
Jenny Taylor, April 2019
I found Gemma's website two weeks before my wedding and luckily she was available to do my hair and make up. From the first exchange of email until after my wedding, she had been very professional! She replied to all my communications very promptly, she was very accommodating, very friendly and very practical with advise. The trial was wonderful and the actual day was even better. She also did the hair and make up of my two bride's maids. We were tight with time but she remained calm and made us all relaxed and happy. We were all delighted and satisfied with her work and I highly recommend her to all future brides or anyone who would like to have that extra confidence on their special day.

Gemma did make up for my daughter and her friends for their senior prom and did a beautiful job, really adding to the fun of the afternoon of preparations ⭐️ Heidi Clarke, November 2019
Gemma did my daughters hair and makeup and the results were amazing. She is super friendly and has so much knowledge. She always checked with my daughter to see what she wanted as she went, my daughter was really pleased. Highly recommended.
Andreas, November 2019
Gemma was very friendly and worked really well with my daughters thick curly hair! She wasn’t fazed by my interest in what she was doing or by the numerous questions I asked. She was very confident and I am more than happy to recommend her.
Bianka Sharpe, November 2019
Gemma did my hair and makeup. We absolutely loved the styles she did and I was so happy with my makeup. I don’t usually wear much and she was full of tips and tricks and made sure it was really natural but still special! . I would definitely recommend her to anyone!
Deepti Gurtoo, November 2019
Gemma is amazing, with only a couple of weeks notice she did amazing with my hair and makeup for my wedding day right from the trail to the actual day, she is always so welcoming and friendly I would highly recommend Gemma for any occasion.
Michelle Newman, January 2020

Sam Jameson, January 2020😃
Lovely woman and does a great job will defo go back to gemma xxx Kathleen Simpson, January 2020
Gemma is lovely - the perfect combination of friendly and professional. Having no idea about makeup and mostly what I didn’t want than what I did, she was great, offering choices and great guidance throughout my trial as well as my mums (who has sensitive skin) and I could sit back and relax on the day without a worry. But most importantly I was blown away that the makeup withstood many tears from all of the bridal party and still looked flawless with no touch ups before photographs - I couldn’t recommend Gemma more, she’s amazing.
Lindsey Sloggett, August 2020.
Gemma done hair for my wedding there was me, 4 bridesmaids and mother of the bride. Everyone looked absolutely stunning, Gemma was so helpful on the day too.
Hannah Lloyd, January 2021.
I didn't have a trial run before the big day but Gemma took the time beforehand to ask me to send her pictures of what I liked so that she knew what kind of look I was after. On the day Gemma went over everything step by step, making sure I was happy with my makeup and hair. She was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I was incredibly pleased with the end result and would highly recommend Gemma to anyone wanting their hair and makeup done for their wedding or other special occasion......10/10
Jean Kidd, April 2021
Gemma was fantastic. I needed a natural but long lasting look for a work photoshoot and I was complimented all day on how fresh and glowing I looked. Gemma was super friendly and professional. I would 100% recommend.
Danielle Simpson, May 2021.
Absolutely love Gemma and I really enjoyed getting pampered on my wedding morning by her, as she got me, my auntie and my sister in law ready. We all looked so beautiful!! I was very nervous during my trial but she was so good at making me feel at ease and It felt like I was around one of my friends as we laughed and chatted. We had amazing communication through email, she was always ready to answer any questions I had. I literally can’t recommend her enough!! Thankyou for being part of my special day and making me look like a princess. Here are just a few photos from the day, I will send you more over once the watermarks have been taken off but I just couldn’t wait to share them with you. Thankyou so much again.
Shakina Baden, May 2021.
Gemma was amazing, she did a trial for me as well as my big day and I couldn't have been happier. She met my vision for my hair and make up as well as my bridal parties. All of our hair and make up lasted perfectly the whole day and that was despite the many tears!! Gemma worked solidly with no break from 7am to 2pm and made the morning special by chatting with us all and making is fun!! Would recommend Gemma to anyone looking for hair and make up for any special occasion.
Kim Neate, June 2021.
Gemma provided hair and make-up for my bridal party on Saturday 19th June 2021. She arrived on time, took us through what needed to be done, and did an amazing job. Gemma made my wedding morning preparations fun, relaxed, and entertaining with her charm and brilliant sense of humour. Gemma is a consummate professional and has skills that I could never master. If you wish to have someone make your day a little bit special with superb hair and make-up I can recommend her whole heartedly. Thank you for making my special day even more special Gemma!
Michelle Norris, June 2021.
As the husband I am not capable of judging how Gemma performed in the private sanctity of the bridal preparation room, however her results truly speak for themselves. Gemma made my mother-in-law and mother look superb for my wedding and enhanced the natural beauty of my bride in such a wonderful way that she was complimented all day (making me very happy!) Thank you for traveling to our venue Gemma and I can recommend you to anyone needing a superb and kind hair and makeup artist!
Jamie Hampton, June 2021.
Thank you Gemma for making a special day even more special, From walking through the door at silly o'clock in the morning you where friendly, calm, professional, respectful nothing was to much trouble for Michelle Jenny and myself who hadn't a clue what we wanted or needed 🙄but your expertise sorted us out, You managed to sort out Michelle sun burn which was amazing as it was angry and red, but by the time you had worked your magic you couldn't tell it was there, Michelle looked stunning her hair and make up look so natural, thanks again for all your help and hard work Helen
Helen Hampton, June 2021.
Gemma has been amazing from the first consultation right up to the wedding day she has kept in contact and adjusted to my requirements. We were so happy with our hair and makeup on the day, certainly reccomend to anyone who is looking for a very professional, friendly hair and make up artist.
Kerry Little, June 2021.
I was such a nervous, emotional mess and Gemma’s warmth and professionalism helped me to feel at ease. I felt a million dollars and was spoilt for choice with options. My bridal make up and the bridesmaids make up looked beautiful and I couldn’t of asked for anything different! Highly recommend!
Beth Jones, July 2021.

Debbie Brinkley, July 2021.
Amazing job done on my daughter's prom make up. She did exactly what my daughter wanted. Gemma was also lovely and cracked on even though it was chaos . Would highly recommend
Jody Millin, July 2021.
Gemma was Amazing! Helped us out at the last minute, which was a life saver. She was extremely professional from the start to the end. Very well planned upfront and the end results were fantastic. Gemma was great with our daughter and made her feel really relaxed. Would highly recommend!
Simon Lewis, July 2021.
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Gemma for doing my hair and make up for my sons wedding. Gemma's professionalism shone through from the trial to the actual day of the wedding. She arrived on time, asked questions about what I wanted and we discussed specifics in detail. On the day of the wedding It was actually lovely to sit there and relax during the midst of everyone getting ready around us as Gemma is very calm. The hair and make up was just what I wanted and lasted all day and I was especially pleased with how everything looked on the photos. I would highly recommend Gemma to all.
Sheila Page, July 2021.
Gemma done an amazing job of my daughter's hair and make up for her prom last week. My daughter was over the moon with the results and so were we. I have also booked Gemma for mine and my 3 daughter's hair and make up for my wedding next year. By far the best hair and make up artist in swindon.
Lyndsey Corrie, July 2021.
Gemma was amazing! I couldn’t have asked for a nicer person to be part of my wedding morning! The hair & makeup for my bridal party was flawless and it stayed on until the next morning even in the heat! Nothing was too much trouble and Gemma made sure I was comfortable with everything before she left. Thanks Gemma to making the start of the day so wonderful!!
Emily German, July 2021.
Gemma was amazing all through from the first consultation and trial to the wedding day. She was a calming presence on the day, and coped very well with the madness of my family and friends on the day! Gemma did my mum’s make up last minute, and she looked so lovely. Gemma also took into account my requests to keep the make up natural, and attached the florist’s flowers into my hair beautifully. Thank you Gemma!
Cordelia Parker, July 2021.
Gemma was very friendly and professional from start to finish. I asked for a natural look for my wedding make up and that’s exactly what Gemma achieved. My hair was perfect for the day, I used a hair piece which Gemma used to incorporate with the rest of my hair making it look natural. My bridesmaids also had their hair and makeup done by Gemma and they all loved the outcome, a natural look for the makeup with soft curls for their hair. I would highly recommend Gemma and if I have another event that requires my hair and makeup to be done then I will be getting back in touch.
Faye Ellary, August 2021.
Gemma prepared my daughter's hair and make-up for her prom. She was friendly yet professional from the moment I contacted her - her communications were prompt and courteous and she guided our choices with skill...helping us decide whether to use a hair piece/accessories or not and what make-up to have. On the day she arrived on time and talked my daughter through her options...she was very calm and patient. The final look was just what my daughter wanted - in fact it exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend Gemma.
Alison Smith, September 2021.
“Gemma very recently agreed to do my daughter’s makeup for her rescheduled prom at very short notice after we were let down by someone else. I found her whole service to be very professional, whilst also being very friendly. Not only was the makeup excellent, her patience when dealing with my daughter’s requirements was very nice to see (it was my daughter’s first time having makeup done and she didn’t really know what she wanted). Gemma’s professionalism was plain to see from the beginning with email confirmation of our booking and gaining as much information as possible prior to her arrival at home to do the makeup. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.”
Alasdair Airdrie, September 2021
Gemma did a fantastic job on my wedding day doing all our makeup. She made us all feel really relaxed throughout and even helped make sure I was in my dress properly! Gemma was a true professional throughout the entire process of booking, changing dates due covid, arranging our trial, and on the day itself. I am so pleased I chose Gemma to do my makeup and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a fabulous makeup artist.
Charlie Puddicombe, October, 2021.
Gemma did my hair and make-up for my wedding at the weekend, aswell as my bridesmaids' hair and make-up and mums' hair. She was wonderfully calm and great at helping us all get ready. I usually do not wear make-up and I was very happy with my natural bride look that I didn't feel uncomfortable with. Gemma also created a lovely hair up-do that we decided on together after a successful hair trial, where Gemma tried several different looks to find the best one. Gemma really listened to what we wanted and helped us create the perfect look! My sisters hair and make-up was also beautiful. I would highly recommend Gemma for bridal services! A massive thanks again!
Hayley Davis, October 2021.
Gemma was amazing from the first contact she replied to correspondence quickly and nothing was too much trouble. I do not wear much make up and Gemma did my makeup to suit me and had to accommodate my needs as I am allergic to many products. My hair was nothing like I have worn it before but it was perfect. Gemma’s vision made me feel confident as Mother of the Groom. I was given plenty of compliments all day. I would highly recommend Gemma and would like to say a big thank you for making a special day perfect. Fran Doyle, October 2021
I just wanted to say massive thank you to Gemma, who done my hair and make up for my best friend's wedding. She did an amazing job and I felt and looked like I step down of a magazine cover. Thank you so much Gemma.
Dovile Mortley, December 2021.
Gemma did my hair and makeup for my wedding and my hair and makeup looked absolutely beautiful. My eyes are quite sensitive and she was so patient with me. She calmed me down and helped me relax on my wedding day. Couldn’t have asked for anyone better. 1000% would recommend.
Daniele Clifton, February 2022.
Gemma did a brilliant job with my hair and make up. she was asking me my opinions and suggestions throughout for hairstyle and kind of make up I wanted. I got so many compliments, everyone in my family absolutely loved my look. Gemma is an outstanding make up artist and hairstylist. I would highly recommend.
Rajani Koundal, February 2022.
Yesterday Gemma did hair and make up for 5 people, 2x bridesmaids, mother of the bride, mother of the groom and myself at my wedding and what can I say, the attention to even the smallest detail was amazing, I really couldn’t have asked for someone better to share the morning of my wedding. Gemma brings a calm and relaxed atmosphere even when the pressure of time is looming! Would highly recommend Gemma to anyone, I absolutely loved my hair and make up for my big day!
Lauren Hunt, March 2022.
Gemma was fantastic from beginning to end. I had a few amendments from the trial and she listened and executed perfectly on the day. We were very short for time on the day and due to other things going on my makeup was left until last and we were down to the wire time wise. Gemma calmly finished under extreme pressure and it looked perfect. What a phenomenal service.
Kay Jameson, April 2022.
Gemma did a brilliant job doing my hair and make-up for my wedding day, she also did hair for my 3 bridesmaids. Gemma was so helpful throughout the whole process and answered any questions we had. She's absolutely lovely and makes you feel at ease. I was really happy with the end results.
Kerry Hitchens, April 2022.
Gemma at very short notice was available to be booked for my wedding. She travelled to a nearby location from the wedding venue to do wedding hair for a relative before joining the bridal party at the venue to do their make up. Gemma was an absolute pleasure to work with from the initial enquiry throughout the booking process and on the day itself. She was friendly, knowledgeable and it a very talented hair and make up artist. I would highly recommend Gemma to any bride or any individual who needs some fabulous hair and make up for an event. Thank you so much Gemma!
Helen Jones, May 2022.
Gemma recently did my daughter’s hair for her prom. She did a fantastic job and my daughter absolutely loved the style. She was extremely professional and a lovely, friendly person. So pleased we chose her. Would definitely use Gemma again and would highly recommend.
Karen Preedy, July 2022.
Gemma is AMAZING, so polite, kind and thoughtful. She is calming on a very stressful morning and listens to all your requests. The organisation via email and face to face was great. I couldn’t have asked for any better! Thank you so much.
Meg Spencer- Turner, September 2022.
Gemma did mine and my mum's make-up for my wedding. She was absolutely brilliant, from helping me figure out what I wanted during the trial to doing an absolutely perfect job on the day. Very professional, patient, and going above and beyond to make customers happy. Everyone commented on the day how beautiful I looked - which was completely down to Gemma! Can't recommend enough.
Ann- Sofie Diener, November 2022
Gemma was amazing from the very first email. She listened to what I was after and did a fantastic job. She was very knowledgeable about different products and styles and could advise me on what to choose. On the morning of my wedding, she came to our venue and was calm and organised. She made getting ready an enjoyable experience. My mum and bridesmaid were really happy with their hair and make-up too. I would definitely recommend Gemma for bridal hair and make-up!
Carly Chew, November 2022.
Gemma did mine and my daughter's make up for our wedding on Saturday after having done a trial the month before. She did a wonderful job and it looked just as I wanted as she asked lots of questions to find out exactly what we wanted. It looked natural and stayed put all day-even through all the (happy) tears! In addition to this, on the day itself Gemma was a huge support. From helping with outfits, finishing touches etc, it helped put me at ease. We were so impressed and will definitely contact her again should I need my make up doing. Lovely lady. Thank you so much Gemma!
Tracey Turner, December 2022.
Gemma is fantastic she was absolutely amazing on my wedding day , I had a trial a few weeks before hand which really helped in deciding how i would have my hair and makeup for the day , she also did a trial on my oldest daughter's hair to get the right style for her and my other bridesmaids. She took great care and time to make sure everything was just right for the day .. A massive thank u Gemma .
Julie Ruddle- Shannon, April 2023
Gemma was brilliant, she styled my hair on my wedding day and made it look so beautiful. I couldn't recommend her enough! Sue Davis, May 2023
Gemma has been just amazing! Gemma did my hair, my maid of honour’s hair and my mothers hair for my wedding in May 2023. She was nothing but kind and adaptable to my needs and was great with communication. She came to my house and did my hair trial and I found her to be very easy going, bubbly and professional. I was really impressed with the hair style I went for and she was amazing on my wedding day making sure everything was perfect for me! Couldn’t recommend her enough and will definitely come back for any occasions in the future!
Bliss Gardiner, May 2023.
