Hi Emmalene, Thank you so much for doing my bridal make up and doing my mam and bridesmaid’s make up. I had the most amazing day; it was perfect. Best wishes
“I used Emmalene’s services for my wedding on the 31st of May. Well, I say ‘I’ did, actually my whole family did! I have to say I was sceptical at first, not of Emm’s services (as she had been recommended to me), but spending the extra money on makeup and the latest beauty treatments. Like any bride, money was being spent quicker than it was being earned! So I was not sure the cost (which is extremely good for the service and product you get) was justifiable. My best advice to anyone is – just DO IT DO IT DO IT!!!!
Here is why……I had several consultations with Emm at her home. I had a makeup trail within these, a facial and I then opted for the great offer of teeth whitening which came with a meaty discount as I was having my wedding make up done. Make up……From these consultations and treatments, very early on I learnt what a professional Emmalene is. She knew me and my sisters/mum skin type in a second, worked out our skin care routine and guessed how we liked our makeup – simply after a quick stroke of our bare cheeks and just by looking at us! I was amazed. She knows her stuff! Emm spent so much time with the 3 of us at the makeup trial, we were confident she would do us proud when the big day came around in May. I was at ease immediately. And proud she did us!
The big day arrived on the 31st of May, and I felt the most relaxed bride on the planet. Emm coordinated herself perfectly with the hairdresser in the other room, and we were transformed within a matter of hours. There was 4 people to do make up for within this time, as my younger sister had opted for hers doing too after the trial – Emm even had time to add some eyelashes on to my friends! Emm made me feel totally relaxed, and my face was in her hands! My skin was looking and feeling great after the derma facial she had given me 3 days before.
To say I was delighted with my wedding make up is an understatement – my hubby was well impressed too! It was beautiful. Emm only uses the best products, and it lasted well into the early hours of the next day! I looked and felt the best I ever had. Thank you. Would I recommend Emmalene beck – I think the answer is obvious. 100% yes!!!! I will be back.
You were the perfect person to have around on my wedding morning- not just a make-up artist, but you kept me calm and made me beautiful as well and for that i am eternally grateful!! It all went downhill after you left unfortunately. My Mum took ages getting her hair etc done and i was nearly an hour late for the wedding! The registrars nearly didn’t wait!! MOTHERS!!! Anyway, besides that small point it was a lovely day- just perfect! Hope your well! If i know anyone needing a make-up artist you will be highly recommended!!
We had an excellent day thankyou, you was right everything turned out o.k in the end. I just wanted to say how happy I was with the make-up you did for myself and my bridesmaid for my evening reception in June 2012. You were very accomodating, friendly and a must needed calming influence. Having got married in Mauritius an evening reception back home (Barnsley) for those who could not attend was very important to both myself and my husband. Thankyou very much for coming to myslef rather than me having to travel to yourself. All the best

Wow – I definitely made the right choice booking with you. I have problem skin with spots and no matter what I use I can’t hide them. You were amazing and they were not visible on the photos at all. You made me feel beautiful. I would highly recommend you to anyone. There’s a before shot of my skin if you want to use it as proof of how fantastic you are. Thank you Lynsay for making my day special
I found Greenfield & Beck through recomendations on various forums and having never having my make up done professionally I took a chance and booked in for a trial ready for my wedding. On first meeting Emm I immediately liked her she was so easy to be around and we talked alot about my fourthcoming wedding, life in general and our love of dogs. She was so easy to be around and me feel completely at ease. Throughout the trial Emm gave me her advice as to how to wear my make up for the big day and I trusted her judgement and let her do my make up as she felt would suit me best. When she had finished I took a loof at my make up and felt completely over whelmed, it looked amazing and I knew then Emm was the person I wanted to do my wedding make up, it looked completely flawless and she did an amazing job of covering up my big “mummy bags” under my eyes!.
On the morning of the wedding Emm turned up when she said she would bang on time so no stress worrying about where she was and yet again she made me feel completely at ease and got straight on at doing my make up. We chatted away during my make up being applied along with my hairdresser who too thought Emm was lovely and really liked her and I almost forgot about all the stress I had gone through organising my wedding and felt so relaxed. When Emm had finished I took a look in the mirror and again the make up was perfect and I was really happy with the result.
All in all I would highly reccomend Greenfield & Beck to anyone thinking of having their make up done professionally for their wedding or any other social event for that matter and I cannot thank Emm enough she made me feel like a proper bride, thank you.
I first heard about Greenfield and Beck when my friend’s sister was getting married! Emmalene had done the make up for the bridal party and came highly recommended not only for her fantastic skills as a make-up artist but for her dedication to getting to the bridal party during the crazy winter we had in 2010. I contacted Emm and made a booking for my two bridesmaids, my mum and myself. I personally was quite nervous about having my makeup done as I have very sensitive skin, but after several emails between Emm and myself and a fantastic trial I was confident the results would be great on the day.
Between having my trial and the big day I decided to have a full set of ‘Hollywood lashes’ applied. I had them done just a few days before the wedding and they looked amazing! They looked so natural that I didn’t even realise I was wearing them. I would definitely recommend them to any bride to be!
When it came to my wedding day Emm arrived early and got started with my mum and two bridesmaids first. I wanted to be left till last because I had become a little worried that my skin would become sensitive wearing make-up for such a long time. I shouldn’t have been nervous my makeup was completely flawless all day and the whole bridal party looked amazing! I am so glad I chose Greenfield and Beck for my wedding day and will recommend Emm to any furture brides to be! A fantastic friendly, reliable and professional service, Thank You!
After trawling the internet for make up artists, I booked Emmelene to do mine and my bridesmaids make up on my wedding day, because I was so impressed with the website and testemonials. I was not disappointed. From my first phone call to Emmalene, I felt totally confident that I had made the right choice. Emmelene was really friendly and professional at all times and put me totally at my ease. We had a make up trial prior to the big day where Emmalene spent time talking to us to find out more about our colour scheme for the wedding and our preferences for our own make up. Nothing was too much trouble for her and we actually spent several hours trialling different looks before settling for the one we were happiest with.
On the wedding day, Emmelene turned up at our Hotel bright and early and began to work her magic. We were all absolutely thrilled with the results! We even had a good laugh together which calmed the nerves. Our make up looked amazing on all the wedding photos and looked just as good at the end of the night. I had many compliments and felt like a million dollars! Thank you so much Emmelene for helping to make me and my bridesmaids feel so special and beautiful on my wedding day! Love Jackie x
I met Emmaline at a wedding fayre where she did a quick make up trial on me and I knew from then she was definitley the make up artist for me! I booked for myself , my mum and 2 of my bridesmaids. When it came to the trials one of my bridesmaids who was not booked as she was quite dubious about having someone else have her make up done as she doesn’t tend to wear much herself, came along and she was so impressed with the results she booked for the big day too!
When the day came Emm arrived and got cracking straight away, she is such a nice person and fitted in really well with my bridal party, which was great. We were all absolutely thrilled with the results, the make up was flawless and lasted all night. My chief bridesmaid and I had also been to Emm earlier in the week for eyelash extensions, they too were perfect and made
such a difference to the overall effect. I can whole heartedly recommend Emm, she is professional yet extremely friendly, 100% reliable, gives excellent value for money and her work is second to none!!
(Summer Ball make-up)
My 20 year old daughter and I had Lynsey and Emmalene to do our make-up for a summer ball this year. From start to finish we were so impressed, everything about the way they work is so professional but with a personal touch. The end results were of a standard that we would never have been close to achieving ourselves and we were over absolutely over the moon. A very big thank you to you both x ps. Thanks for keeping my 3 yr old entertained at the same time, she was in lipstick heaven!!!
Emmaline, I would like to make a huge thank you on behalf of my bridesmaids and myself, you made us look and feel fabulous. We were all very nervous about having our makeup done but having had the trial you but us all at ease. Not only with what you could do but also through you knowledge of colourings, face shapes and much more, as we were clueless. On the day you helped create a relaxed and happy atmosphere. You also changed the colour of the bridesmaid’s eye makeup after seeing the colour of the dresses, and it looked amazing. In fact one of my bridesmaids said “she felt a million dollars”. As for me you made me feel wonderful and look beautiful. I was confident in what you said and did and you were right. I had so many lovely comments throughout our wedding day and after. Thank you so much for everything, I will be seeing you again. Nicky xx

“I’d like to say a big thank you for my beautiful wedding day make up. My bridesmaids, Mum and I were all delighted with the results. The trial was great preparation and the advice you gave me on the lead up to the big day was really appreciated. It was an absolute pleasure to have you involved during the morning of the wedding. All the girls commented on how relaxed they felt having their make up done with you and how receptive you were to their preferences. I had so many comments on how natural but amazing my make up looked and it lasted until the end of the night despite some pretty energetic dancing (and a few tears)!! Thanks so much. Julie x
Hi Emm, Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the wonderful job you did with my make-up as well as my sister’s and mum’s, we were all really pleased with the results. It was great meeting you at the trial first and found this a massive help as you listened to what we wanted and advised us all the way, making sure we were all happy with everything for the big day. I would also like to thank you personally for the advice you gave me on the trial, you went out of you way to find out the best products for me to use on my dry skin and advised me what to do to make sure that my skin would be perfect on the day. Thanks to you and your expertise, we had a wonderful day, the make up was fab and lasted through the night. I would recommend you in a instant, you are not only brill at what you do, you are a lovely person and I can’t thank you enough. Thank you for everything, Keeley
Thank you so much for doing our make up at my wedding. We were all really pleased with the results and we received lots of compliments during the day, and the make up looks great on the photos!
Thanks again, Kate.
Hello Emmalene, I would just like to say a big thank you for the great job you did on myself and my two bridesmaids for my wedding. Everyone was very complementary of the make up on the day and I felt truly special. I will definitely recommend you in the future and hope to use you myself again one day. Thanks again, Katherine Ellison
Hi Emmalene, This is just to say a big thank you for all your help prior to and on the day of the wedding. I know Tanja will be contacting you directly, but I just wanted to thank you for agreeing to do my make up. As I said, I rarely wear a lot and am not terribly confident as I am always frightened of looking grotesque. Having had a trial I knew I could be confident that on the day my make up would be perfect and it was. My skin looks good on the photographs (not easy) and some of my husband’s colleagues made the comment that they didn’t realise he had a younger wife! – I can only put that down to your skills. I also thought Susse looked amazing and it is clear from the results you achieved for the three of us that you do listen to your clients and act in accordance with their wishes. I would certainly be more than happy to recommend you to anyone who is looking for an excellent make up artist. Many Thanks. Janet (Mother of the groom).
“Dear Emmalene, Thank you so much for all your help. I absolutely love the makeup you did for me and my sister. You were a great support and made everything smooth and easy both in the run up and on the wedding days itself. It was the day of my life so thank you for making me feel beautiful in such a natural way, it was exactly what I imagined!” Tanja
It was a pleasure to have Greenfield and Beck involved in my wedding day. Emmalene was very professional and reliable, as well as being a very skilled makeup artist. She listened carefully to what I wanted during the trials and made sure I was 100% happy with it. On the day itself she was punctual and a very pleasant, calming influence. My makeup was perfect and stayed in place all day and I hardly needed to reapply anything (apart from lipstick!). I would definitely recommend them and not hesitate to use them again. Many many thanks.Love Flic x
I booked Greenfield and Beck, after reading the endless amounts of good reviews on the internet, for my wedding. I was very apprehensive about having my make up carried out by someone as I was unsure how it would turn out. After my initial meeting with Emmalene for my make up trial I could breathe a sigh of relief. She was so lovely and experienced and made me feel at total ease. I normally do not wear much make up myself, as well as have no idea at times how to apply make up correctly. Emmalene gave tips throughout and I loved the way I looked after the application of make up. Emmalene also made my wedding day stress free, I felt at ease and relaxed the morning of the wedding. She also applied make up to my maid of honour and she was again very happy with the way she looked. My make up lasted throughout the day, and I had many compliments made about the way I looked. For any one wanting a special treat for their wedding day and for the stress to be taken away, I would highly recommend to book, as you will not be disappointed by the results. Thanks so much for making my day so special – Shelly xxx
I would like to say a huge thank you to Emmalene and Lynsay for doing my make up for my wedding and my families make up too. You were both so professional and really listened to my needs. My make up was flawless and so natural. My mum loved her make up too, even though she wasn’t sure about having her make up done at first, she is so glad she did and stills comments on how lovely you did her make up that day and has even bought the same colour lipstick and wears it every day. I got so many compliments on the day and have recommended you to many family and friends. Your both great people who definately know your stuff and was very professional, but could have a good laugh too. You really did a fantastic job and I wish you all the best for the future. Love, Claire
Suzanne and Alan
Thank you so much Emmalene for doing my wedding make-up. Following the trial I was so glad I had chosen you as you were so calm and patient and saved me the extra wedding day stress! Everyone commented on how lovely the bridesmaids and I looked and I had lots of compliments on my eye make up which looked stunning (must have been those sneaky individual false lashes). My make up looked just as fresh at 12 Midnight as it did when you applied it at lunchtime. I cannot recommend you highly enough and would advise any bride to book you early if they want to look their very best! Anyone who can work such miracles with my 40 yr old skin after zero hours sleep the night before must be amazing! Well done and thank you…xxxx
I booked Greenfield and Beck for my wedding make-up after searching on the internet for local make-up artists. I booked in for a trial for myself, my bridesmaid and my mum. Em was fantastic from start to finish, she is very professional and down to earth which I loved and made us all feel comfortable from the start, she listened to what we all wanted at our trial and didn’t leave til we were all happy with our make-up.
On the wedding day itself Em travelled up to Thirsk where we were getting married and was very calming on the day and great to have around, listening to my mum chatting away because she was so nervous. My make-up was perfect and exactly as I wanted it, I loved it and it lasted all day long. My mum and Jen (my bridesmaid) both loved theirs too and our makeup looked the same at midnight than it did at 11am (even after some frantic dance moves!!). I would recommend Greenfield and Beck time and time again and only wish that I could afford to have Em do my make-up every time I was going out. Don’t hesitate in booking them if you want to look fab on your wedding day. Thanks again xxxx
