Ione Wedding Hair & Make Up Artist


If someone asked me if they needed a makeup artist for their wedding day, I’d always say it’s really up to them but personally I’d want to have my makeup done professionally. I’d also say the same thing if someone said they were eloping. The reason is that you’ll never know how you’ll be feeling on the morning. Even though you’re eloping, you may still have the same nervous feelings you’d have if you were having a massive wedding. Imagine waking up really nervous and knowing you have a certain amount of time to do your makeup. Having a makeup artist on the morning of your elopement takes that little bit of stress away and helps keep your morning super relaxed and calming. Plus, a bride deserves to be spoilt on her wedding day.


I wouldn’t say there was a right or wrong way to have your makeup on the day of your elopement, but I always say you should try to keep your makeup similar to how you’d usually wear it. All you really want a makeup artist to do it enhance your look, not hide it and to apply it in a way that’ll make it last all day.

You’re marrying the love of your life, they adore the way you look already! If you walk down the aisle and look like a completely different person it’s going to be a shock for your future partner. Don’t listen to people who tell you you should be wearing more foundation or be contoured so it lasts longer or to stand out in your photos. Makeup doesn’t need to be heavier than normal for photographs. Why would you want to feel uncomfortable for the whole day just so you can apparently look better in your photos? With the right skincare, makeup products and professional techniques you can have a naturally beautiful makeup look that will last all day and look just as amazing in person as it does on camera. No one wants foundation sitting into lines they didn’t know they had.


I personally believe the best hairstyle for a relaxed beach wedding in Cornwall would be something super bohemian and undone; something really effortless. If you’re eloping in Cornwall you probably already know the weather is very unpredictable and can change at any minute. I always say embrace this! Because Cornwalls weather at any time can make for great photos and the more relaxed and effortless your hair the more romantic the images. Hair that flows in the breeze looks so much better than hair that’s stuck to your scalp.If you’re going for a half up half down, go for some soft waves, stay away from crispy tight curls. If you’re going for an up-do, embrace your hairs natural texture, don’t have to much volume as helmet hair has never been a good look.


If I had to give any advice to a bride on their elopement day, it would be to stay calm and relaxed and just embrace all the feelings. This is a really special day and the best bit about it is you get to spend it with the person you love most in this world. You don’t have to worry about making small chit chat with cousins you haven’t seen since you were 10 years old, or worry about your grant aunt kissings you on the lips every 5 minutes. You’re not eloping because it seems more practical and easy you’re eloping because it’s romantic and intimate and all about the two of you.

Kind Words

I loved having Ione do my hair and make up!! I had a very bohemian laid-back beach wedding in Devon and I wanted someone with the same vibe – Ione was just perfect. Plus I love her hair. A couple of trial photos below and a couple from the day. She’s so friendly and warm and helped me relax on the morning. She left her house SUPER early to start my makeover at 7am for our 10.30am ceremony and even came earlier than normal to blow dry my crazy frizzy hair so much love thanks Ione. – Mari

Ione was an absolute dream to work with. She completely got the look I was going for and has such a lovely relaxed calming manner that I completely needed on the morning of my elopement. When you’re choosing to have such an intimate ceremony it’s so important that the people involved bring the right energy to your day and Ione was such a friendly and calming influence. My hair and makeup looked absolutely stunning but so natural and effortless and lasted the whole day – I even enjoyed rocking beachy waves the next day! – Felicity Jones

Dear Ione, I just wanted to say a big thank you for your amazing hair and makeup yesterday. I loved the whole look so much that I didn’t want to take the makeup off or undo my hair at the end of the night! What I also loved about working with you as my artist is that you added a calming energy to the atmosphere even when I was losing my head to wedding day worries or concerns. You have an amazing talent and I wish you the very best of luck with your future, both personally and professionally. Once again, thank you so much for making me feel beautiful on my wedding day.
