I'm so flattered by the lovely words of my brides. Please have a read and get in touch if you'd like to book makeup for your special day.

Brides Comments


“I feel so lucky to have found Sophie for our wedding make-up! Not only is she a fabulously talented make up artist she is also a wonderful woman whose patience never faulted - even after numerous panicked messages about changes to the style of my make up! Sophie did an amazing job on myself and my bridesmaid, she was personable, friendly, amazing value for money and most importantly listened to us and put us at ease on the big day. THANKS SOPHIE!”


“Sophie was great! I hunted around for a make up artist for a while and as soon as I started talking to her I knew she would be perfect for my needs - and as an added bonus she could do nails too! She was very accommodating, I had no idea what I wanted first time round but she did her best, and even let me go back for a second try when I changed my mind - oops. Highly recommended and we got on so well we've even ended up becoming friends. A lovely girl with great talent.”


“Sophie was amazing and was like having a close family friend at our house prior to the wedding! Sophie was able to identify what i needed from the very 1st meeting and made an amazing job on my wedding day. I would recommend sophie to everyone she is brilliant”


“A total professional, but at a competitive price. The make-up was done to a very high standard and she got exactly the style that me and my bridesmaid were looking for, but she was also really lovely to chat to and helped us relax. We didn't have much make-up experience but her advice was really helpful. Overall friendly and lovely to have around during the preparations, with the highest quality professional finish. Couldn't ask for more!”


“I was a blubbering mess on the big day and worried my make-up wouldn't last, but it did and I felt like a princess all day.”


“I would not hesitate to recommend blushing orchid to all of my family and friends. Sophie was so professional and created exactly the look I was after. I received compliments all day and night about my make up and I didn't need to reapply. Nothing was too much trouble for Sophie and she was so friendly, after my trial 2 of my bridesmaids and my mum also booked in because they were so impressed!”

“Sophie not only did my make up for the wedding day but showed me how I could do it myself and recommended ways to dress it up and down for afterwards. It was two treats in one beautiful makeup for my wedding and a lesson in how to do my make up myself.”


“Sophie is very personable which really helped to put me at ease. She knew which colours would suit my skin, and was happy to try any different colours that I suggested. She took her time and gave me tips as she was going along (eg recommending a skin care routine) and also advising me to buy the lipstick she used so I could touch up during the day. She also did the make up for my mum and sister and they looked amazing. Very happy with the look she gave me and I would definitely recommend her!”


“Sophie from Blushing Orchid was very friendly and professional. She was able to advise me on a natural look that would be great for my big day and used great quality products. I would 100% recommend her services.”


“Sophie was really approachable and friendly and took a lot of time with me and my mum to get things just right. Sophie was prompt and she was really good value for money. She had a very natural ability and really listened and worked hard to make us feel at ease. On the day she made me feel really relaxed which was incredibly important just before the ceremony.”


“Beautiful make up applied by a lovely lady!!! Will be recommending to all my friends! Sophie manages to put people at ease despite not knowing them! She knows exactly what you want and how to get it. She truly made a difference to my big day!”


“Sophie was very professional and friendly. She responded straight away and arranged our trials very quickly. Her knowledge and advice were very good and we were all very impressed with the finished product.”


“I had come across Blushing Orchid on a search engine and was really impressed with Sophie's website. The website had shown comparisons of brides to be, before & after which was great to see, due to my skin having outbreaks. Sophie had also gone the extra mile on the day due to a problem we experiencing on with the buttons holes, she really helped us out, which she didn't have to do. Very professional and friendly and will to recommending in the future.”


“Sophie was so friendly and really helped us enjoy the morning. Good organisation which was needed as there were a few of us to be made up”


“Sophie is a very friendly yet professional make up artist. I had no doubt that she was the perfect person to ensure my make up was flawless for my special day and would last until the very end. She was great in helping decide on what look to go for and recommended tones to compliment my skin tone and eye colour. I'd have no problems in recommending her in future.”


“I loved my wedding make up! Sophie did a great job :)”


“Sophie was fantastic from start to finish. She was really helpful in the build up to the wedding and the price was very good value for money. At the trial she made me feel very relaxed and was helpful in finding the right finish. The bridesmaids and my Mum did not have a trial but she found them the perfect style for them and they were all delighted as well.”


“Extremely pleased with my makeup on my wedding day and thought the whole process, with the makeup trial and getting my makeup done on the day, was a great experience. Would recommend Blushing Orchid Makeup to others.”


“Excellent customer service with good suggestions when I wasn't sure what I wanted. She made me feel like myself but a beautiful version.”


“Sophie was so good on my wedding day and on the trial before. She listened to me and really did my make up so beautifully. Nothing was too much trouble for Sophie and I have already recommended her to others that I know are getting married.”


“Sophie is lovely. Myself & 4 bridesmaids were nervous about having makeup done and what to go for and Sophie talked us through options and ensured we still looked like ourselves (but better) and were happy with result. She took pics so we could see how it worked on camera. She gave me fantastic advice on products and my skin's never been better. She made us all relaxed and we thoroughly enjoyed her presence. She should win.”


“Sophie was amazing on the morning of my wedding, there were so many of us to do and she didn't rush any of us. My bridesmaids all looked stunning and my mum was so pleased with hers. I didn't really know what I wanted so Sophie gave me suggestions and spent ages with me at my trial helping me make decisions. On top of that Sophie is lovely to talk to and we had quite a few laughs while we got ready. Thanks again!”


Why they booked


“As soon as my trial was complete, I knew I wanted to book Sophie, she knew exactly what I wanted and felt that any worries I had previously had all disappeared. Sophie had listed to all of my bridal party needs and created amazing looks who were all equally happy with. We have now received photos and can say our makeup looks amazing, we are all really please with the outcome. Cannot thank Sophie enough"

“I booked Sophie having done some research online. Her portfolio of previous work was impressive and on first contact she was friendly and knowledgeable at what she does”


“Photos on website showed lovely different make up types. Sophie was easy to get hold of worked around us.”


“After recommendation, I received a really reasonable quote and was really happy with the make up trial. It took away all the worry on the day. Sophie understood that I wanted a really natural style. Her website was useful and informative.”


“I booked her because he website was really good and looked very professional!”


“From the first time I met her Sophie was friendly and professional and offered great value for money.”


“I was recommended Sophie by a friend, I did some research and I liked the previous make up that she had done from the pictures online.”

“As well as having an impressive looking website and portfolio, her prices were much better than others I had looked at. After a great trial I was very pleased to book her.”
