Makeup Artist Ripon, Harrogate, Leeds & the North Yorkshire area

As a Professional Makeup Artist specialising in Bridal and Wedding Makeup I have had the pleasure of being involved in some gorgeous weddings at some stunning venues. Choosing a venue for your wedding is probably the most important decision you’ll make as it pretty much defines your whole wedding day.

Yorkshire is one of the most beautiful counties in the country (if not THE most beautiful!)
So we are blessed with a plethora of gorgeous options when it comes to hotels and other wedding venues.

Here are some of my favourites:

Rudding Park

Set amongst beautiful landscaped gardens and woodland, Rudding Park is one of the most relaxing Harrogate hotels within easy access of both York and Leeds.

The Devonshire Arms

They will help in every way we can to make your occasion distinctive, momentous and most importantly of all, enjoyable for you and your family and friends.

Allerton Castle
