What our brides have said about us...

Emily, Jennifer and Jadie.

Just wow! you guys are just amazing.

absolutely everyone commented on how beautiful my bridesmaids hair and makeup was done.

You guys are just amazing at what you do, I wish I could have you doing my hair and makeup every day!

Emily you took the stress out of everything, even things that weren't even about hair and makeup. Your so organised & I love the coloured spreadsheet of who was getting at what time.

There is so much more I could say, I felt absolutely amazing all day, literally felt like a Princess

much love X X X


I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you, Jen and Leanne.
The girls were amazing, Leanne was amazing and me and my mum loved our hair and make up.
My mum was quite nervous about her hair and make up as she has never had it done before but Leanne was excellent with her and she was so happy with her look.
Leanne really listened to what I wanted and I honestly looked the best I ever have 😂
The girls were so happy with their hair and Jennifer was so calm and lovely. She wasn’t phased when I asked for some extra pearls in the girls hair.
Thank you for your quick communication and help throughout the booking process.
Thanks again!


Better late then never! Our wedding was back in may at Coombe lodge and these girls were absolutely fantastic! From Emily who I don’t know how many times we had to change the plan but we got there in the end and had a good giggle! And it all went swimmingly on the day! So thank you for Carly for doing my auntie, mother in law and nans make up! Leanne for my wonderful make up and my maid of honour and flower girl and of course my nans and aunties hair! The lovely sally for making my bridesmaids look fantastic and Katie for the wonderful job you did with their hair! And of course fabulous Stacey for creating the perfect hair for me,maid of honour and my flower girl! These girls were amazing and worked fantastic as a team to make our day perfect! Thank you so much! Xxx


'I would highly recommend Bristol Bridal hair and makeup to anyone! I had Stacey for mine and my bridesmaids hair and Jackie for all of our makeup. They both did an absolutely amazing job! They were so friendly and calming on the day which is exactly what every bride needs. Emily was also fantastic with all of the initial communication and organisation. Also Emily, Stacey and Jackie were all fantastic when I had to rearrange both my trials due to illness, nothing was too much trouble and they all made the process very easy and enjoyable. They were all absolutely first class!! Thank you all so much!! Xx'


'I booked them the week before my wedding. Very prompt and professional. Jackie was my makeup artist. She knew what I wanted and delivered. Do not hesitate and go for Bristol Bridal Hair & Makeup and you won't regret! Thanks ladies once again!'


'My whole bridal party had our hair done by Stacey and makeup by Emily in 2014. They worked so well together and it was lovely to have them as part of our morning!'


'Thank you so much for all that you and your team have done. You have made the whole process really easy and enjoyable!'


Thank you so much Stacey and Jade for making myself and the bridesmaids look so lovely on Saturday! You were both a calming presence on the wedding morning and helped to create exactly the look we wanted. You made us look fantastic and set the tone for a wonderful day. Thanks also to Emily for her prompt replies to my many emails!


To Stacey and Sally - A huge 'Thank you' for the wonderful hair (Stacey) and makeup (Sally) you did for my bridal party and myself. Aside from the weather, we had a wonderful day and both the hair and makeup survived the wind, the rain and the usual stresses, looking as good at the end of the day as it did at the beginning. Not only that, but I have received nothing but compliments, not only regarding me, but the rest of the bridal party too - you made all of us look and feel a million pounds and were so easy to work with - thank you!


Thank you Nicole and Maria on your lovely hair and make up for myself my mother and my bridesmaid would definitely recommend you both


Thank you so much to Maria, Laura and Kay for doing hair and makeup on my wedding day! Not only did they spend hours making the most beautiful hairstyles and makeup, they were so friendly and made everyone feel at ease. Laura and Kay did hair for nine ladies working non stop from 8 in the morning, producing the most intricate styles and voluminous blow dries and curls everyone commented all day how amazing all our hair looked. Maria did makeup for my mum and I and we were so happy with it and felt like royalty. The airbrush stayed on despite many tears! I would recommend Bristol Bridal Hair and Makeup to everyone. Emily made the whole process of booking so swift and again was so friendly in emails, always fulfilling my requests and answering my questions. Thank you for helping me look and feel my best on the happiest day of my life!


I have to say a massive thank you to Emily and Jennifer for all they did on my wedding day in May. I absolutely loved how I felt once they had worked their magic. My make-up was perfect and lasted all day. Jennifer did a fantastic job with my hair. All the bridesmaids looked and felt brilliant. Thank you both so much! Xxx


Emily, thank you for the care and time you took with my make up, the transformation was quite amazing!


Thank you all so much, you were a delight to deal with and made it all so easy to organise!


Emily and the team massively helped me out for my wedding. Not only did my hairdresser let me down a few months before the big day, but my make up artist cancelled on me 2 days before!! Both times I was let down Emily was straight on the case looking for stylists to step in, and both times I had a Bristol Bridal stylist booked within a few hours. The make up by Lorna was absolutely fab and the hair by Nicola elegant and beautiful. I'll send some pictures once the official ones come back. Thank you so much for calming me down when I panicked and for making me and my maids look our best on the most special day of my life xxxxxxxx


Hi Emily and everyone at Bristol bridal HM,

Thank you so much for everything you and Nicola did

for me and the wedding party. Emily thanks to your excellent organisation the plan for the day went really well, with everyone's hair and makeup being completed well before time. You both helped us feel completely relaxed on the day and everyone was so happy with their hair and make up. With lots of people at the wedding commenting on the results and saying how lovely everyone looked.

I would highly recommend you both.

Thanks so much again.


I highly recommend Bristol Bridal Hair & Make Up. Emma was very patient and I was very pleased with the final result. All my friends noticed the fine and beautiful work she did. I could not be happier with my hair!! Thank you very much!!!!


After setting a date for our wedding with only a couple of months to prepare I was very relieved that I chose Bristol Bridal Hair & Makeup to do my hair. Emily was extremely prompt & helpful from my initial enquiry and throughout, making the whole process stress free & enjoyable. Sam was a delight. She was extremely amiable and helpful at the trial and created a wonderful uplift after taking on board the look I was trying to achieve and advised on various hair accessories I could add as well. On the day, Sam was her usual very calm and friendly self & made me feel very at ease. Sam captured the look I wanted to achieve perfectly and my hair looked absolutely amazing - everyone said how lovely it was. Thanks so much to Sam for contributing towards making me feel a million dollars and to Emily for such an efficient & smooth service. Vicky


Hi Emily,

Just wanted to say thank you so much for arranging my hair and make-up with Nicola and Casey for my wedding on 12th May.  I have just emailed Nicola and Casey to say how pleased I was with my hair and make up - I loved my hair, it really complemented the overall style with the dress, and my make up was so natural and just how I wanted it.  They have also both been really friendly and relaxed which really put me at ease on the day.Thanks also for rearranging my hair arrangements - it was so reassuring to know that you were reorganising it for me so quickly, as there was so much going on at the time!  I'd definitely recommend Bristol Bridal. Alex xx


My wife Zoe and I both got our hair and make up done with South West Bridal hair & Make Up and we couldn't be happier with them!

Speaking from my own experience, Nicola and Emily were absolutely fantastic. They made the bridal party feel so relaxed and were warm and friendly, making us laugh the whole time.

It is clear that both ladies are passionate about what they do, and the results were amazing. My mum was not very confident in the lead up to the wedding and it brought her (and me!) to tears once Emily and Nicola had finished with her hair and make up.

Not only did it look stunning at the beginning of the day, but both hair and make up (despite crazy wind and rain!) stayed perfectly in place until 1am - amazing!

I couldn't recommend them highly enough - if you're in any doubt then take my advice and book! Thank you so much ladies :)


I booked Gemma to do my bridal make up through Bristol bridal HM. Gemma was away travelling at the time but the communication with Emily was great. As soon as Gemma returned I was put in touch with her and she was absolutely fantastic. I would highly recommend


Thank you for everything you did at my wedding. The four of you did such an incredible job and all the girls looked beautiful. Everyone looked great all day and compliments were flowing.

A special thank you from me as well as you have been so easy to work with in the build up to the wedding and really put me at ease. I felt like a million dollars on my wedding day and my hair and make up was perfect.


I heard about South West Bridal through Sally, who saved me from booking a Make Up Artist from somewhere else that was charging us the earth and messed us about with prices etc (long story!) and not being very professional. As soon as I got in touch with Emily I knew straight away that the service was more professional and at more reasonable prices and just overall more trusting.

I would just like to say a massive thank you to Emily Woolley for her amazing communication skills and how she fixed me up with Lauren our amazing make up artist.

Lauren did an amazing job on my bridesmaids, myself and my mum. One of my bridesmaids never wears make up and was a little nervous, Lauren put her at ease and made her look so natural. Thank you Lauren for making us feel beautiful.

Overall, South West Bridal was very professional (I like that you have a contract!) and friendly and very prompt. Thank you girls and keep up the amazing work!

Lots of love xxxx


I booked Leanne through this site for my wedding in June and could not have been happier! She did a trial at my home and was really up for working with me as I had not had my make up done before! On the day she arrived in plenty of time to do mine and my bridesmaids make up. She was so calming and fun to have there on my wedding morning!

Booking and payment through the site was really easy too.


Just to say a HUGE thank you to Laura and Gemma for doing hair and makeup for my wedding on the 16th June. They were both absolutely fab and I found the whole experience so much fun! I was so worried I was going to be super nervous on the morning but they really put me at ease. My mum doesn't usually wear makeup and Gemma was absolutely fab with her, too! Thanks for organising everything and making the process so easy in the wedding planning chaos. My little sister is getting married in a couple of years time (one of my 'maids) and I've recommended you guys to her to use too! Will be recommending you guys to anyone who needs hair or makeup around your new areas!

Thanks again!



I couldn’t recommend Emily and the team enough. As a stressed and worried bride about having myself, 6 bridesmaids and my Mum to get ready by 11am the morning of the wedding I never thought I would find anyone who would be up to the job. But as soon as I spoke to Emily on the phone she completely put me at ease and sent me over options of hair & make up artists. It was a difficult decision as everyone looked amazing but Stacey & Sally took on the job of getting me, Mum and 2 bridesmaids ready whilst Maria & Bianca had the 4 other Bridesmaids. Emily even put together a schedule for me so I know who was going when on the morning of the wedding which made everything so much easier. I had met Stacey & Sally beforehand for trials so I knew I was in good hands with them but I was anxious about not meeting Maria or Bianca before the day however when I emailed them to confirm all the details beforehand they both were so lovely and friendly it put me at ease. The morning went smoothly without a hitch and the girls were amazing! I would highly recommend them all especially Stacey & Sally who dealt so well with me being ill on the day and Emily who was an absolute star at making me feel at ease! In my mind there is no one else to book with! Thank you so much girls


Leanne was truly amazing!! From trial to the big day she was superb! Everyone has raved about airbrush make up and it did not disappoint. It’s almost like not wearing anything but with a full coverage! And I didn’t need to touch up all day!! It was beautiful! Thank you to Emily for making the booking process so easy and being there for advice too!! My mother and mother in law looked beautiful too!!! Big love to you all xxx


I arranged my hair and make-up through Emily at South West Bridal Hair and Make Up for my wedding in May 2018. Nicola did my hair and my bridesmaids' hair and Casey did my make-up. I really loved my hair and Nicola interpreted my ideas so well, and I was so pleased with my make-up, it was very natural and just how I wanted it. Everyone was really friendly and relaxed which really put me at ease on the day. It was also very reassuring to have Emily coordinate and arrange everything for me so efficiently.


Highly recommend Lorna & Katie, they've been absolutely fantastic from day 1! there standard of work and professionalism is amazing. Thank you both so much for making me and my bridal party look amazing xx


I would recommend south west bridal hair and make up to anyone planning a wedding  from the initial enquiry Emily was quick to respond to all enquiries and was so helpful. We had Katie W and Gemma do our hair and make up for our party. Trials were easy to arrange, everyone was so friendly and patient with us throughout the whole

process. The morning was so calm and they were so professional and relaxed which meant the morning was a dream!


I hired South West Bridal Hair & Make Up for my wedding over this summer and was so wow'ed by their work. Emily, Jadie, and Jennifer worked with my bridal party with Emily doing my makeup and Jadie doing my hair. I told Emily that I wanted to feel like a more beautiful version of myself for my wedding, and that is exactly what she delivered. And I've never received more compliments on my hair than when Jadie was done with it (it was my wedding, but still - you can tell when there's that much enthusiasm!). My bridal party looked fantastic too. It was such a great feeling to see everyone look enhanced, but so natural at the same time and it takes real skill to get that right.


The women were absolute pro's, sticking to timelines and allowing us space to enjoy the morning while getting ready at the same time. I'm so grateful to have gotten to work with this team and would recommend them to anyone looking for bridal styling services.


Over a month later but I'd like to send you both a big thank you for doing my hair and makeup at my wedding and helping create the individual style I wanted whilst also feeling like me. I really did feel like a princess!


Laura my hair was so amazing and stayed where it was despite the wind! You really perfected the vintage but bridal look I wanted and were so patient and commited to getting it right.


And Kora I don't wear makeup usually so thank you for creating a natural style but that still looked amazing and helped me feel so comfortable and confident.


Thanks Emily for setting it all up and making it happen.


I've attached a few pictures for you to see. Thank you again for everything!


I just wanted to let you know how amazing Leanne, Charlotte and Jen were on my wedding day. All 3 of them were super cheerful and professional and made everyone feel at ease. Even though it was a ridiculous time in the morning Leanne was incredible and so organised. The time absolutely flew and I found I was so busy chatting and admiring my new look that I forgot to be nervous! My hair and make up got so many compliments and it held up through the wedding and into our afternoon in the park. I would recommend the three of them so highly. I was also very grateful for the time you spent making sure that I had the right people and sorting out last minute details. I felt like I was in good hands and never worried about my hair and make up for a minute.


“From our first emails almost two years ago, Emily was endlessly helpful, organised and informative. Not only is she a talented make-up artist herself but she also single-handedly runs South West Bridal and has done so with complete professionalism and personal care even through the toughest times with the pandemic. I always felt important and cared about every time we spoke. She found us amazing MUAs in Louise & Sarah and fabulous hair artist in Jadie. Emily had originally been booked as our MUA but due to Covid date changes she became unavailable. In stepped Louise and she was so talented, calm and professional throughout. She really listened to what everyone wanted and got everyone looking their best. I don’t think I’ve ever looked prettier and I felt like a princess all day!! She is a truly wonderful MUA.

Sarah and Jadie did hair and make up for another group in the wedding party and again, their professionalism, warmth and calmness made what could be a frenetic morning very calm and enjoyable. Everyone looked and felt their best because of their efforts and talent! We all had so many compliments throughout the day.

I cannot recommend Emily, Louise, Sarah and Jadie highly enough and I am so thankful to them for helping make the day picture perfect!


Thank you SO much for the hair and make up you did at our wedding yesterday, and for all the help and support planning the big day. 


We had an absolute blast and the hair and makeup for everyone stayed in place perfectly! We cant wait to share the photos with you. 


I am so sorry for the mad rush at the end to get 9 girls dressed and organised (including me!) , but you honestly made the whole thing seamless and I cant thank you enough for everything. I would not hesitate to recommend you all! 


Special thank you to Leanne for the work she did on my makeup/hair and the trial beforehand. I really enjoyed getting to know you, and you made me feel so confident and special. 


I know this is a rather delayed email..but I just wanted to say a massive thankyou for all your help and advise throughout the lead up to my wedding day on 2nd April. 


I have already made a couple of recommendations to you and your team and will continue to do so! 


Thanks for being so quick with your responses and dealing with me adding more and more people on to my list for hair styling without any hesitations and keeping me updated throughout. You are just the loveliest person to communicate with.


Also..huge shout out to Jadie and Jennifer absolute dream team! Both amazing! 


Best wishes




But I just wanted to say, both Jadie and Charlotte were amazing on my wedding day. Both their skills are incredible and I couldn't sing their praises enough. They really listened to what the girls wanted and everyone kept complementing me on my hair and make up. They were also so kind to my mum as well.

I am so pleased they were a part of my spe
cial day and thank you for all your help leading up to the wedding.



Having used South West Bridal Hair and Make Up for both my weddings (thank you Covid) I have been recommending them to every bride to be I know. 

I was very impressed with the speed of response, flexibility and caring professionalism shown by Emily with our many cancellations and date changes due to lockdowns, even though it must have been just as infuriating for her also. Emily always kept me up to date with what artists were available, guidance surrounding their areas of expertise and with detailed quotes for services provided. 


For my first small lockdown wedding I had Jennifer D for hair and make up who was brilliant at providing her glam services for myself, my mum and maid of honour at a time when restrictions were still very much in place and made it awkward to undertake her job as she would have pre covid. However she put us all at ease and was great and we were very happy with her services and final looks provided. 


For my second wedding at St Audries Park last year I booked Leanne and Jaydee for hair and make up for myself and my bridal party, both were exceptional and we looked super glam and as I had envisaged. 

Both arrived on site at the venue for opening and started on what would become a well organised conveyor belt of hair and make up with myself and my bridal party feeling relaxed the whole time and not stressed about timings. 

We all looked great and the glam was definitely delivered as promised. 


I have and will continue to recommend the services provided by South West Bridal Hair and Make Up to any bride I know. They are in my opinion a well set up, well oiled machine with a large contact book of professionals so should sickness or unforeseeable circumstances arise I felt secure in the knowledge that a fab hair and make up artist would be there ready to work their magic on the morning of my wedding. 


Thank you so much for our beautiful hair and make-up on my wedding day on 22nd June. We had such a lovely morning with you all!

Emily - thank you for such an organised schedule and clear communication! The planning was a breeze with your help.



Thank you to Emily for putting together the plan for the morning to help things run smoothly 🙂
