Destination weddings bring two of Jessica’s biggest passions together: makeup and travel. 

Jessica first experienced solo travel at eight years old when visiting her grandparents in Spain. Over the years, Jessica has lived in Spain, Italy and Mexico and can speak Spanish. She also taught TEFL in all three countries before training to become a bridal makeup artist.

Finding the perfect makeup artist for your wedding is no easy feat but doing it in a different country even more so. Having worked on over 500 weddings, Jessica works alongside destination wedding planners to ensure your wedding morning is calm and fun. 

Jessica specialises in creating modern, effortless makeup looks that will stand the test of time (and the heat!). Using expert application alongside beautiful cruelty free products, Jessica can ensure your bridal makeup look will last in the sun and long after the party has started. 

So, whether you’re heading for the golden sands of Marbella, a romantic Italian castle or hightailing it to the Scottish Highlands, Jessica is available to book for your destination wedding.

Side note: If you’re a destination bride and doing your own makeup, Jessica also offers tailored makeup lessons to give you all the professional tips and tricks ahead of the big day.

Can I have a bridal make up trial with you before my destination wedding?

Yes absolutely!

I’m based in Cheltenham in the Cotswolds, UK where you can have a makeup trial with me in my home studio. Alternatively, I do destination makeup trials at your wedding location a couple of days prior to the big day.

Are you able to do make up for members of my bridal party for my destination wedding?

I beautify a maximum of 4 members of your bridal party. 

Please reach out to discuss the time of your ceremony and the size of your bridal party. If needed I work with amazing artists on a regular basis and can arrange an assistant who can accompany me on the day.

Will my make up withstand the heat?

Yes - that’s what you’re booking me for, expert application plus beautiful products will ensure that your bridal makeup look lasts all day! 

Your bridal makeup trial is a great opportunity for you to see the longevity of the products and to check that they’re working correctly with your skin. All my products are product tested for longevity; they are water resistant, sweat resistant and transfer resistant so I have complete confidence that the products will last all day and night.

Do you do bridal hair too?

Yes - I am a trained hair artist also. I do hair by request for brides only. For members of the bridal party I have wonderful artists I can recommend.

Why should I choose a destination Makeup Artist and not somebody in the country where I’m getting married?

If you have found an artist in the destination of your wedding whose portfolio you love then you should absolutely consider booking them. Be sure to read through their Google reviews and Facebook reviews to gauge feedback from other brides.

If you’re struggling to find a makeup artist whose work really speaks to you, then it's worth considering a destination bridal makeup artist. Your bridal makeup is such an important part of the day. It will impact how you feel on your wedding day and also how you reflect on the photographs that you’re going to have forever. Most importantly, you should feel comfortable and confident with your makeup artist knowing that they will deliver on your desired look.
