From all our Beautiful Brides xxx
Gemma you star! I cannot thank you enough for the stunning job you did with my wedding hair and makeup, it was spectacular, exactly what I wanted and I felt incredible on the day. Despite the heat in Santorini my hair and makeup did not budge which shows how well it was done. From the trial to the wedding day you were an absolute pleasure to work with and a true professional. You brought my vision to life perfectly, were such a calming energy on the day and were a fabulous wedding guest! Thank you also for the amazing job you did on my mothers hair and make up, I have never seen her look so good. You are amazingly talented lovely and I cant recommend you highly enough. Thank you so much for making my day! Lots of love, Kim xxx
Where to start – at the beginning I guess. My husband and I decided to marry in the North of Italy (2 hours north of Venice) in the mountains. We live in London, so we knew that our choice was not going to be the easiest to source suppliers for the wedding, but in our minds, we had found the perfect venue, so we were set on it. When it came to choosing a hair/make-up supplier I had a little bit of a hiccup / disaster with my trial in Italy. This was three months before the wedding. Doing more trials in Italy was just not an option. I started to ask for recommendations from my friends in London and one of my good friends recommended Gemma. I looked her up on the internet and was blown away by her work – all of the hair and make-up looked like it was out of a high end wedding magazine. I thought for sure there was no way that she was going to be able to come to my wedding that late in the game, but I thought I would try my luck…. I sent off an email on a bank holiday Monday in May. I waited with baited breath for the response, certain that it was not going to work. I got a message back first thing on the Tuesday confirming to me that in fact, this was one of the last appointments she had available. Luck was on my side that day! I jumped up and down with joy and immediately booked a trial with Gemma. I went out to Gemma’s studio, which is absolutely beautiful and incredibly professional. I was nervous and excited. I met Gemma and immediately felt at ease – she has a natural way with people, she is down to earth, really interesting and incredibly fun. I loved the trial – the hair was just stunning and the make-up was beautiful – Gemma had made me look beautiful but kept me looking like myself. It was at that point that I wish that Gemma could come over to my house every day before I headed off for work.
Now, here is where it gets complicated, as I already mentioned to you, I was marrying in a pretty inconvenient place for most people from London, in addition to that, I wanted the hair and/or make-up done on the morning of my wedding for 10 different people and to top it all off, the wedding reception started at noon, which meant that me, and 10 other people would need to be finished by 11am. Now, above I mentioned a few positive characteristics about Gemma, but the one thing that I left out is that her and her team are a group of miracle workers. Fran and Michelle (Gemma’s incredible and super friendly assistants) worked with me to put together a team of 3 ladies + Gemma to fly out to Northern Italy and drive all the way into the mountains on the Friday night before my wedding. Gemma and her girls (I am sure after an epic evening of travel) came to my hotel for 6.30 am on the morning of my wedding and worked their magic to have everyone looking incredibly smashing by 10.30am. I still do not know how they did it. Everyone was so happy with their hair and make-up and I thought they all looked so beautiful. Personally speaking, as the bride, I really feel that Gemma made me into the best version of me that day. She has an incredible attention to detail, she understands colours like no one I have ever met before, she gets people skin types and knows how perfectly to match a brand of make-up with that skin type. Gemma truly is an artist and I do not know if there are enough nice words in the English language to thank her enough for the incredible job that her and her team did. So I will say it simply – Thank You.
Thank you for doing my Hair and Makeup for my Wedding. The look was perfect and was exactly what i envisioned and more. You were so calm on the day that made me feel relaxed and calm. I really enjoyed our chat, it felt like you were one of the girl gang but better because you’re amazing with Hair and Makeup! I will definitely be recommending you to all my friends.
As a professional makeup artist – planning my own Italian wedding – i knew it would take someone special to achieve the high standard of work I would expect from myself.
That someone special was Gemma Sutton and what she did for me was so much more than make me feel beautiful.
I am quite particular about my skin and it’s texture and at the trial Gemma listened intently to my concerns and then discussed the options with me, taking into account the heat of an abroad wedding and the longevity required of the makeup.
On the day, I not only knew my hair and makeup was going to look incredible (the trial was fantastic and a great opportunity to try out a few looks if you’re unsure what look you’re after) but I knew that whatever might go wrong, be it a late shower or a disruption to the preparation, I had someone with me with years of experience who is cool, calm and collected. Gemma simply absorbed any anxiety or nerves i had.
I’ve always felt that morning getting ready with your oldest friends and family members is one of the most special parts of the day and was worried my nerves might stop me from enjoying this precious time. I need not have worried…and I credit my relaxed, happy and excited enjoyment of that morning down to Gemma.
We didn’t get in from our wedding night until 5am & my makeup was still perfectly in place, (despite the heat) and my hair looked fantastic even when posing for photos on a roof in the wind.
Gemma – you are one in a million and I can’t thank you enough for everything you did for me. I’ll never get to relive that day so I’m so lucky that I have no regrets… you made me feel and look perfect.
Thank you, thank you, thank you – perfect magical and utterly superb!
Thank you lovely, you totally made my wedding day the best day ever!!! I cannot express what it meant to me having you there and knowing that I could relax with the best hair and makeup artist in the world.. xx Thanking you so much
Miss Red Rose was exceptional throughout the morning. Arriving on-site at around 5:30am, she was enthusiastic, comforting, organised and thorough. She is a wizard of her craft, I’ve never looked or felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day and I entirely credit her skill and eye for detail. She even enlisted my five-year-old flower girl as a bobby pin and makeup assistant when she started getting impatient. The bridesmaids loved her, too and she was a wonderful and warm companion on the wedding morning, thank you so so much.
Gemma exceeded my expectations. From the moment I met her she was friendly, professional and super talented. Her work is flawless and her team were superb with all of my bridal party. A lot went wrong the morning of my wedding and Gemma was exceptional at making sure her team were on track regardless. My make up was incredible & Gemma was so lovely to be around, and talk too when I felt stressed, it made such a difference having her. I really can’t stress enough how much I loved her, such a gem.”
My hair and make up were one of my highlights of the day. Gemma made me feel so relaxed and comfortable- and the trial gave me complete confidence that she knew the look I wanted. The overall effect was magical – I couldn’t have asked for more!
Miss Diamond was so lovely and totally faultless! Myself and my bride tribe absolutely love her and she was a joy to have with us on the morning of the Wedding. We all felt that she was very professional yet personable & I have never looked as good as I did after she had done my makeup! She listened to our personal preferences and used these along with her professional expertise to make us look fab & she was very knowledgeable about the products and techniques being used. Thank you so much for being a part of our day.
I had so many comments on my hair and makeup from my wedding day. My artist (Miss Red Rose) was totally faultless, such a lovely girl to be around on such a special day, she made sure I was happy with everything and did the most amazing job. I am so grateful for her work.
Incredible service throughout, accommodating, calm and understanding when I turned up 3 hours late to my trial due to a delayed flight! The trial completely put me at ease and made me feel excited and confident that I would look my best on the day itself. My artist (Miss Red Rose) was a lovely addition to the bridal party, easily slotted in and everyone was delighted with her work, from grandmothers to bridesmaids. Thank you so much again, keep in touch!
Gemma – make up artist and hair extraordinaire! I couldn’t wait to get in touch with you to say a massive thank you to both you and the team for making me and my maids look and feel incredible. You were both a joy to be around, no words can describe how thankful I am to have had you play such a huge part of my big day – you girls are the absolute best and made it so magical! Gemma you were amazing at knowing exactly what I wanted and really good at listening and suggesting ideas in the initial hair and makeup trial too.
From the bottom of my heart thank you to two lovely talented woman, true professionals, it has been a real pleasure getting to know you.
For all brides out there, there is only one company you need to approach for your wedding and that’s Gemma Sutton Pro Team – you will not be disappointed, these girls are the real experts!
Not only is Gemma extremely creative and talented when it comes to wedding hair and makeup, but she also brought so much energy and excitement to my big day! Gemma is my big sister, so obviously she was going to be a big part of it (as well as being chief bridesmaid of course!), but she remained so professional and on time, as well as doing her own hair and makeup along with my three other bridesmaids. For me, there was no one else that could have made me look and feel so special and I couldn’t believe how I was transformed at the first trial. I left her studio with such a big smile on my face. It was the best experience I could have asked for from start to finish and I couldn’t have wished for more on the build up to my wedding day. I absolutely loved my hair piece and my up do and stunning make up. Gemma managed to complimented my gown from Suzanne Neville beautifully. Gemma and Fran were fantastic from start to finish and always went over and beyond. Thank you both so much x
Wow! Are the only words I can use to describe this company. From Fran, the amazing coordinator, the studio for the trials, the consideration given at the trial appointment (I was there for over 4 hours), the expertise of the make up artists (Miss Lavender Jade and Miss Rose Gold), to the skill and talent shown on the day with both my makeup and hair. I was given many, many compliments about my ‘look’ on the day of my wedding and that was totally down to Miss LJ’s skills – they are an outstanding company, thank you so much for being a part of my big day!
Gemma is an amazing makeup artist, there was no doubt that I wanted to fly her out to Italy for my big day. She did such a beautiful job, and it really was lovely having her there. I wish Gemma all the luck going forward, I hope she keeps doing what she is doing as she brings such happiness to a lot of brides…… I am one of them. X
Gemma and her team where outstanding! I was very nervous about having someone doing my hair and makeup for my wedding as I’m very particular about how I like it, but Gemma instantly got my vision and was able to put me at ease. Right from the moment I got in contact through to leaving me ready to walk down the aisle, Gemma and the team were truly amazing. Her current and up to date approach meant I have never felt so beautiful, I can not thank you and the team enough, Gemma!
I booked Gemma after seeing the incredible work she had done for previous brides. Her team were amazing at getting back to me and being helpful over email. The trial at her studio was relaxed and she really got the vibe that I wanted for my big day. On the day she was punctual and made me feel relaxed. I was over the moon with my hair and make up for the day, I felt the prettiest I’ve ever felt. The hair and make up lasted all day and every commented. Looked amazing in the photos too.
Thank you so much for making me look and feel like a little princess on my wedding day. I recommend you to every bride I meet!! Lots of Love. xx
The most perfect hair and makeup I could have wished for. Both Miss Resplendent and Miss Serenity gave great advice whilst listening to what we all wanted. They were absolutely amazing. Communication with Fran before the event was always thorough and a quick very friendly response. An amazing experience from start to finish. Thank you all x
Thank you Gemma for helping look so amazing on my wedding day, you’re a very clever lady – the BEST. Love Mrs Manton xx
I have been putting this off as it means that the wedding is over and I am going to need to comet terms with the fact that I no longer have my wedding hair and makeup to look forward to. I always knew that you would do an amazing job and you made me look and feel amazing!!! My simple dress needed something special to balance it out and it was perfect. It really made my wedding day outfit. I could not have asked for more, everything stayed in place all day and everyone complimented it. Huge thanks, I am incredibly grateful!!! Much love
Miss Impeccable from the GS Gold Team really is every girls little piece of heaven. My only wish would be to do it ALL over again! X
