I have been working as a Hairdresser, Make Up Artist and Beautician for the last 15 years, and still to this day I love it now as much as I did when I first started!

It started in Cornwall when I was 15 - I was given the part as Satan in the school play...  I spent more time in front of the mirror figuring out my Hair and Make Up than I did practising my lines!

I happily started college studying an NVQ2 in Hairdressing, with a day a week dedicated to Make Up and Beauty.  After completing the course, I decided to find another that specialised more in Make Up, and found a college in Somerset which hosted a GNVQ course in Media Make Up, focusing on Make Up techniques for all aspects of the media - Photography, Film, Theatre and Fashion to name but a few. 

I later moved to Southampton at the age of 21, where I set up my business and was asked to do my first wedding as a professional.  When I wasn't getting hands in on the most important day of a girls' life, you could find me most weekends ecstatically happy while topping up my knowledge and experience in a photography studio based in the city centre.  I teamed up with several photographers across Hampshire, working alongside each other in order to create the most stunning photos.

Now 17 years after graduating from Somerset College, I live in the south-west of France, in the middle of some of the most beautiful vineyards surrounding the city of Cognac.  I now specialise in providing the best service for bridal parties looking to get married in this stunning area of France, whilst also getting to know my local clients (both French and English!) and providing them with all of their hairdressing and beauty requirements in the comfort of their own homes.  I adore my job, and I love the variety that it affords me.  Everyday brings something different, and I can't imagine myself doing anything else!!


What others say about me...

"The service on our wedding day was superb and exceeded my expectations.

The make-up for both myself and 5 bridesmaids was flawless and looked terrific in all the photos. Not only did Gemma stay until I was walking down the aisle to ensure everyone's make-up was perfect, but she also helped all of us get ready. If Gemma wasn't there I don't think we would have been ready in time.
I would highly recommend Gemma to anyone requiring make-up for any occasion.

"Gemma is a not only a great make-up artist who makes you feel special when you're getting your make-up done but also a great stylist! I was chuffed with the outcome of my look when she was done with me! She also had a great way of making me feel special and at ease, it was wonderful to meet the girl too as she couldn't stop making me laugh! Lovely girl and lovely style's created by her! Thank you!!!




"We just wanted to say a very big thank you for being part of our wedding preparations.  Right from the first trial you were great and added to the fun & special occasions (Hen Do's and wedding day).

The photo's are amazing of our hair & make up - we all look like models!!

Thank you for being 'one of the girls'

With love from

Amanda, Sarah (bridesmaid) & Tina (mother of the bride)"
