Once the bride is in her dress and retouches have been done. Usually around 15 minutes before the brides leaves I would depart. There is an option for an all day touch up Service or a makeup change.

Who has a trial ?

I insist upon a trial for the bride unless it is not possible (not in the same country or if it Is not possible to fit a trial in due to very late planning). It is a lot less stressful for everyone involved. Any other member of the bridal party may book a trial.


Hester did mine and my bridesmaids make up for my wedding and she blew us away. She is friendly, approachable and we couldn’t have asked for more from her. It was like having a friend with us. Nothing was too much trouble, she listened to what we liked and didn’t like, hid our “problem areas” and most importantly made us feel amazing. From my trial to the wedding day I had complete faith in Hester and I would trust her again to do my make up for any occasion. 10000% recommend if you’re looking for a friendly, reliable and talented make up artist!

I contacted Hester after being let down at the last minute. From start to finish, her communication was fantastic, she really set my mind at ease. She travelled to my home to do the make up trial and nothing was too much trouble. On my wedding day, Hester was punctual, friendly and made everyone feel amazing! I’m so glad I found Hester. She is so talented and a lovely person with it!! Thank you Hester!!

Hester recently did my wedding makeup, plus 8 bridesmaids and my mum and from the moment I had my trial to the final touch ups on the day, Hester was wonderful to work with. I LOVED my makeup which was super glowy and all my bridesmaids felt and looked gorgeous - she gave me some amazing recommendations for products to use in the run up to the day which have transformed my skin. Everything from lashes to the contouring lasted ALL day and night (10am to 2am) even through dancing in a very hot room, totally flawless until the last minute - Cannot recommend Hester more!

Hester is simply the best MUA I have ever used, so of course I had to have her work her magic on me and my bridesmaids on my wedding day. We all absolutely loved our make up and I felt incredible on my wedding day thanks to Hester! Hester made each of our make up suitable for each of us, making us all feel utterly fabulous. I have been fortunate to have Hester give me many looks over time and not one of them has disappointed. I need another excuse to get booked in with Hester again ASAP. Thank you for making me feel amazing, it helps you’re such a wonderful, beautiful soul too!

If I could give Hester a million stars, then I would. After planning my wedding in 12 short weeks, a make up artist was one of the only things left to book a few weeks before. Let’s just say, Hester was literally dropped into my lap at the most perfect time and I genuinely couldn’t be anymore blessed. We crossed paths at a wedding fayre at Cheltenham racecourse, and after approaching her & finding out she was free on my date, I got her to email me a contract straight away as I wanted to book her! Her work was absolutely beautiful and after telling her I didn’t just want your average plain bridal make up, I wanted ‘glam’, her smile told me I’d made the right choice. The trial was absolutely stunning and her professionalism along with her communication, was second to none. I had no doubt I’d made the right choice and was even more excited for the wedding day. On the day, she arrived at the perfect time, set up promptly and started work on my maid of honour, who looked absolutely incredible. Hester is so friendly and so lovely, that it was an honour having her be part of our big day. My make up was honestly out of this world. The magic she created was perfection and suited the theme of the day amazingly. I genuinely cannot recommended her enough. Hester, thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you did and how you made the day so magical. Hats off to you and your wizardry make up skills. Sending you all the love in the world. Thank you for being in the right place at the right time. Everything happens for a reason
