I love the excitement of getting you, the BRIDE, ready for the biggest day of your life and I want to make you feel relaxed, beautiful – and confident that you will look INCREDIBLE ALL DAY LONG!
During the make-up trial, we will chat about the kind of look that you’re after, whether you’re looking for a red carpet SHOWSTOPPER, something more FREE-SPIRITED, or simply a natural and ROMANTIC look. I will also give you product knowledge and skincare routines to ensure your skin looks FLAWLESS and in top condition for your big day.
On your special day, you don’t want to be worrying about TIMINGS, as I will co-ordinate the styling of your bridal party on the morning of the wedding so that you can enjoy EVERY SINGLE MOMENT of your bridal preparations.
I use only the best, most LUXURIOUS products so that everyone feels completely PAMPERED. I use brands such as Charlotte Tilbury, Bobbi Brown, Hourglass, Urban Decay, Anastasia Beverly Hills and Huda Beauty – for their excellent quality and STAYING POWER.
My experience in fashion, beauty and TV means that you will be guaranteed a look that will both ENHANCE your natural beauty but also ensure that you look STUNNING in all of your wedding PHOTOS and high definition VIDEO.
I always recommend a make-up trial at my studio in York so that we can meet, have a CHAT and create your PERFECT LOOK. This trial usually lasts about 2 hours and is the perfect time for us to discuss all the important DETAILS of your day. You might have a clear vision of what you want to look like, or you may need a bit of ADVICE. I highly recommend bringing along photographs or even starting a Pinterest board so we can chat about your DREAM LOOK.
This is also my chance to get to understand your skin, how I can make it look flawless on the day and how you can look after it in the weeks leading up to your big day. This all helps you to look your ABSOLUTE BEST.
I can also do a make-up trial for your BRIDESMAIDS and other members of the BRIDAL PARTY such as mother of the bride/groom if they would like some help perfecting their make-up before the day of the wedding.
“I cant thank Sonia enough. Sonia applied my makeup and both bridesmaids. I’m a full time makeup artist myself and wanted someone professional, good quality and trusted. Sonia is definitely all of the above. I appreciate that I’m a nightmare client as I’ve problematic skin, allergies and very fussy but Sonia blew me away. Shes a very talented, skilful makeup artist and very reliable. Her kit is beautiful and well kept. Im definitely going to be recommending her.”

“Sonia did an absolutely fantastic job for myself, my mum and my bridesmaids on my wedding day last weekend. She is so personable and really takes the time to understand exactly what you want. As someone who wears little makeup, I was a bit daunted by what to do for my wedding makeup, Sonia really nailed it and I was so pleased with my makeup on my wedding day, it lasted all day perfectly. Thank you so much Sonia xxx
