Wedding Industry Awards 2016: Reviews

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.

“From the moment I met Sophie at my trial, I knew i had made the right decision on my bridal make-up. Sophie made me feel at ease at all times during the trial and on the day, she knew what I wanted but didn't hesitate to advise either - which was for the best. My make-up and my mum & sisters looked fantastic on the day and lasted all day too.”

Mrs Jenna Nethercot


“Sophie was fantastic. Really friendly and understood exactly what I wanted and my bridesmaids. It felt like she was part of the bridal party!”

Mrs Danielle Plesca


“Sophie made me feel very relaxed and confident in what she was doing when we had a trial. I was thrilled and booked her straight away! On the wedding day Sophie looked really smart and came with all her stuff and set up discretely but felt as if she was a familiar friend or family member as we were having make up done and the room was busy! I enjoyed having my make up done and am delighted with how it looked”

Mrs Nicole Smith


“Sophie was brilliant from start to finish. After not being happy with my first MUA with just 4 weeks to go, I was stressed & she came to my rescue. Changing commitments to book me in is over and above what you would expect from someone. On the trial day, she was very knowledgable, helpful and gave me lots of advice to finalise my chosen look. She made it look even better on my wedding day, also doing make up on my mum & chief bridesmaid. Very bubbly, friendly, couldn't have asked for better MUA!”

Mrs Emily Wornum


“Sophie was absolutely what I was looking for in a MUA, she was calm, professional and reassuring, listening and acting upon what I wanted. Too often professionals do not listen and then you do not achieve the look you are aiming for. This was certainly not the case with Sophie. My make up was flawless and remained so until 1am, if only I could look that good everyday , thanks Sophie !”

Mrs Lucy Tanner


“I wanted a natural look that would not look too made up in natural light, but would also show up well in photos. Not a difficult brief at all! Well Sophie was great. During the trial she was very patient and tried lots of different things, so on the day I knew I would be in safe hands. She also did my Mum's make up perfectly, as well as ending up helping with a few of my bridesmaids (which was not part of the brief). I would recommend Sophie without hesitation.”

Miss Helen Lord


“Sophie was fun, friendly and did exactly what was asked. She recommended great tips (e.g to get own lipstick to top up). She was flexible with my picky bridesmaids and offered great value for money!! I would recommend her to anyone getting married! Such a great service! She made me feel really special and I looked fantastic!! Can't say much more, sheer perfection!!”

Mrs Kerry King


“Sophie is a wonderful makeup artist, from the moment we met to complete the trial I feel we formed a great bond. She understood what I was looking for and did not disappoint on the trial and most importantly on the day, she is very friendly and welcoming, I was made to feel very special not just for the first couple of hours but till the moment I took the makeup off, despite the tears of happiness the makeup stayed in place this being a result of not only great skill but fantastic quality makeup”

Mrs Klaudia Staley


“Sophie was a fantastic make up artist, I felt completely comfortable with her from the outset and knew that Sophie understood exactly what I wanted. We had a trial in which we tried several ideas and Sophie was happy to explain everything to me as we went and spend all the time needed to make sure I was more than happy. On the day Sophie was calm and relaxed and we all left the house feeling beautiful and ready for the day ahead of us.”

Mrs Chloe Loasby-Whittle


“Sophie was extremely professional and was so calm and helpful all day. She made such an effort with myself, bridesmaids and mum to find a make up effect which suited each individually. Her advice before hand at a trail was fantastic. All of our make up was flawless ans lasted well into the night. I felt completely ay ease and confident that Sophie was the best choice for wedding make up. I would totally recommend Blushing Orchid to any bride in the future. A very friendly and professional service.”

Mrs Charlotte Pooley


“Sophie from Blushing Orchid was amazing from start to finish on my special day, she turned up at the venue earlier than planned and she got to work straight away, all of her make up etc was in really good condition. She was so friendly and professional throughout. I had her do my bridesmaids make up and my mums as well as my own, all 3 of us looked amazing and we all got comments on how natural but beautiful our make up was which is exactly what I wanted as I don't normally wear a lot of make up”

Mrs Michelle Cox


“Sophie was helpful and knowledgable in guiding us in happy the perfect makeup applied. Everyone commented on how lovely we all looked.”

Mrs Nicola Bartlett Deed


“From the trial to the Day, Sophie provided upmost professionalism and attention to the whole bridal party, listened to everyone’s wishes and the make up finish was amazing! make up lasted all through the day and evening by using the best products available - highly recommend”

Mrs Julie Clark Barnard


“Sophie was the perfect make up artist. She's friendly but not pushy and was able to create the exact looks we had in mind. She was always quick to respond to email queries and offered tips and info I never would have thought of like buying the lipstick she used on me so that I could top it up through the day. I would feel confident in recommending her to friends and family and would definitely use her again.”

Mrs Sarah Beevers


“At the trial, Sophie took the time to understand my concerns and what I felt comfortable in and played around until I was 100% happy. The care and quality Sophie put into my trial run also swayed one of bridesmaids who was hesitant about having her making up done by someone else to have hers done on the day too. On the day, Sophie kept us all calm and even included the little flower girl in the preparations to her delight! It was a pleasure to have Sophie as my make-up artist.”

Mrs Laura Bettany


“Sophie was an absolute pleasure to have doing my makeup on the day she was very calming and just made me feel at ease and the makeup was outstanding I was extremely happy I actually felt I looked nice for once. I would highly recommend her to anyone.”

Miss Brittany Hodges


“Sophie was fantastic whilst doing both my makeup trial & also on the wedding day. She is very friendly and personable and was able to advise what look would best suit what myself and my bridesmaids were after - i would definitely recommend her to anyone else needing wedding makeup!”

Mrs Sophie Simon


“Sophie from the Blushing Orchid was SO kind to me and my mum. My original make up artist let me down 5 days before my wedding. I googled make up artists and found Sophie. I emailed and explained the situation in tears. She contacted me back at 10pm, saying that I could go to her home the next day to do a trial. She was brilliant with my mum, who has a disability, and who usually feels so ugly, she looked beautiful and was made to feel so special. I cannot thank Sophie enough for this alone.”

Mrs Katie Robinson-Brawn


“You couldn't ask for more than what Sophie brings to your Day. Her technical ability is outstanding and she will give you the exact look you want or if you aren't sure, patiently walk you through options till it's perfect. She is super organised and punctual and you knows just how to keep things perfectly to time on a morning that is filled with distraction. To top it off, She is such a wonderful person and brings a kind, calm energy to morning of your wedding! I have never been so delighted!”

Mrs Sherri Fensom


“From the moment I first made an enquiry to blushing orchid, Sophie was fantastic. Sophie replied and communicated quickly and professionally which is what is needed when a bride is looking for a supplier! Sophie was helpful with not only make up but also fir advice. She worked brilliantly on the day with my hairdresser and photographer and did my make up beautifully along with my mums and sisters. A lovely pleasant young lady :-)”

Mrs Leanne Bateman


“Sophie was excellent, she made me feel comfortable right from the start, I wanted a natural look for my wedding and so many makeup artists like to 'over do' it but Sophie was amazing, she made me look perfect for my wedding day, made me feel confident and beautiful. All my guests commented on how flawless and beautiful my makeup was!As well as being a fantastic makeup artist Sophie also managed to calm me down during my last minute jitters! I wouldn't have made it through the morning without her”

Mrs Rebecca Yates


“Amazing makeup artist. Very friendly and approachable. Makeup looked great and lasted all day. Worth every penny. Very punctual on my wedding day. After she finished mine and my mums makeup she helped around my house, loading the dishwasher, cleaning the table. I found this very thoughtful and helpful”

Mrs Abigail Carr


“Sophie's make up was flawless she did an amazing job making us all look gorgeous. She is a lovely person too and was a pleasure to have around during the morning.”

Mrs Claire Duffin


“Wanted a natural look for myself, bridesmaid and my mother and I got the look I required for all. My mum has blotchy skin and a few wrinkles and they disappeared with the quality of makeup used and it lasted all day. I found it was worth every penny I paid as it's quality make up, lasts all day and the service I received was amazing! We all felt at ease and if anyone felt that something needed changing she was able to do this in a very professional manner.”
