Wedding and Bridal Makeup

Penelope is a bridal make up artist and beauty therapist who has been working for herself for nearly 20 years from her salon based in Etwall near Derby.  Having trained in Cambridge she continues exploring new approaches to make up through make up master classes in Berlin and London.

On your wedding day you will want to look your absolute best while still feeling like your natural self. Having an experienced professional come to you on the big day will enable you to relax and begin your wedding day journey whilst we perfect your individual wedding day look. Usually, brides like to look natural, radiant, flawless and timeless as it is the photos you will be looking back on in years to come.

What Our Delighted Clients Think

“Penelope did the wedding make up for myself and my three bridesmaids this summer. I cannot recommend her enough, my make up was perfect and lasted all day.…..”

Pre Wedding Trial

This is very important and the chance for the bride to bring along any swatches and pieces to show the theme of the wedding. We can then discuss ideas to create the perfect make up look for you. We like to allow an hour and a half for the trial.
