Professional Makeup Artist

I strive to make sure you are comfortable and feel amazing!
Most of my brides wear minimal, natural makeup and some none at all. So I understand on your wedding day you still want to feel like you, only with a bit more radiance.

Wedding Makeup

Firstly, huge congratulations on your engagement!  I know first hand how overwhelming planning a wedding can be and it is always such an honour to be a part of such a special day.  My goal is to make you feel your best so that on your wedding day you are able to sit back and relax with your glass of bubbly and enjoy being pampered with you and your Bridesmaids. 

You might feel apprehensive about booking a makeup artist as you don’t wear much makeup day-to-day or you have had a bad experience in the past. I like to book in a no obligation free telephone consultation before you book so you can find out about my approach to makeup and what makes me different. 

In advance of your wedding day, we will arrange a makeup trial. This will be an opportunity for us to discuss and trial your makeup ideas and to let me know your likes and dislikes.  We will also be able to discuss a daily skincare routine in the lead up to your wedding day.

On your actual wedding day, I will arrive at your wedding venue bright and early, with plenty of time to complete your perfect makeup look for your big day, as well as for your Bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride.

Special Occasion Makeup

Whether it’s a hen party, wedding, school prom, or even a hot date, there is always a good excuse to treat yourself and have someone else do your makeup! 

By travelling to your home or hotel, I will be able to achieve that special occasion look using luxury, high-end products.  

Mini Makeup Lesson

Would you like a makeup refresher or to brush up on some new techniques? 

I offer a 1-2-1 session to go through some makeup application techniques to enhance your beauty routine.  
I have 3 mini-sessions that will not break the bank to help you apply your makeup with confidence and without feeling overwhelmed. You can choose from a quick daytime makeup look, or an evening look or if you still feel a bit shy you and a friend or mother and daughter can come together.​

How does this work? We will also go through your personal makeup bag to ensure you are using the products correctly.  I will also provide you with some tips using some of my favourite products so you can recreate a fresh new look time and time again.
Who would benefit from this?  If you don't feel very confident applying makeup, or do not wear a lot of makeup, this is the perfect session for you. 

This can also be bought as a gift using Blush Effects Vouchers, the perfect present.


Bridal Makeup Trials

When should I book my bridal makeup trial?

I recommend you book your trial 2-3 months prior the wedding day. If your wedding is sooner than 6 weeks away, then I will do my best to squeeze in a trial before your wedding date.  

Where do I have my bridal makeup trial?

I usually hold trials Monday to Thursday, daytime at my Reigate premises. Trials carried out at another location will incur a £50 surcharge plus travel/congestion/parking charges if applicable.

Can I bring anyone with me to my bridal makeup trial? 

Yes, You can bring someone with you to your trial to make sure your Bridal makeup is perfect for the big day.  

Do the Bridesmaids and the Mother of the Bride need to have a makeup trial?

No.  However, if they feel they would be more confident from having a trial before your wedding day then they can have one but this will incur an additional cost.

How do I book and when do I pay?

Please complete the form on the contact page, including as much information as you can in your message, for example the event, date, venue, number of people and any additional information you feel would be useful.  


All costs are in the pricing section but please contact me to discuss any bespoke or additional requirements. 


To secure your bridal makeup trial and wedding date there is a non-refundable booking fee of £100, which will be deducted from the final balance.  Makeup trials and wedding dates cannot be held without receipt of this booking fee.  All remaining costs are to be paid one month before the wedding date.


To secure an event makeup or 1-2-1 make up lesson there is a booking fee of £10.  All remaining costs are to be paid on the day.  


I never wear much, if any makeup, I don't want to look too made up.

First off, makeup should be fun and not stressful, I specialise in a natural Bridal Makeup look, I want you to feel comfortable and still feel like yourself just emphasising your natural beauty.

Do I need a certain number of people for my booking? 

No.  I do not have a minimum number to secure your Wedding Day Makeup.  You will need to pay the booking fee and that is all.

I can't even begin to thank you for yesterday. My wedding makeup was perfect. You really made me feel like me... but better! It stayed on ALL day, and looked just as good when I arrived back to the hotel as when I left.
But thank you for being so lovely too. My spray tans and lashes have looked amazing, and it's been so good to get to know you prior to the wedding. You kept me so calm and I just felt like a friend was getting me ready! 
You are such a star ❤️ xxx

Bridesmaid Makeup
I was a bridesmaid last year and had the lovely Sonja do my make up. She did a fantastic job on us all and my make up lasted all day. She was friendly, efficient and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any bridal parties needing a make up artist. I liked her make up so much she also did an occasion make up for me over Christmas that I received lots of compliments on. 5* for Sonja xx

Sonja did my wedding makeup.
I do not wear makeup often so did not want to feel like I had a mask on, but she helped me with my skin routine a few months before the wedding as I had very dry skin which made me feel so much better about myself. She was so friendly and really made us all feel amazing for my big day. My makeup lasted all day and I was so happy with how I looked on the day. She really listened to what I wanted and gave me a really natural makeup that suited me.  My sister has also booked her for her wedding next year.
Thank you so much x
Bridesmaid Makeup
My bridesmaids Makeup was fabulous. I cried about 6 times during the service that morning, and my makeup was still perfect by the end of the day!! So thank you very much! xxx
Bridal Makeup
I am happy I choose Sonja for my wedding makeup. From the moment I met Sonja for my bridal make-up trial, she made me feel comfortable, listened to what I liked and advised me accordingly. My maid of honour and I both looked amazing with all credit to Sonja. The morning of my wedding spent with Sonja doing our make-up was like sharing it with a friend we had known forever. 😊
