Emily is the founder and senior artist of The Knot Artistry.
A graduate of both York University and Blanche Macdonald, she moved from Toronto Ontario to Vancouver Island in 2013. With an extensive background in film and television, her passion for art, the ocean, makeup and people fused together to create The Knot.
The Knot only utilizes cruelty free, high end, good for you products. From Consultation, to trials, to the big event, we make sure you not only look and feel your best, but the experience is both relaxing and fun.
My experience with The Knot was beyond wonderful. From consultation to my wedding day, I felt my anxiety dissipate the moment I sat in the chair. By far, the best hair and makeup I have had in my life. And what an enjoyable experience. THANK YOU!
Working with Emmy was marvelous, fun and simply delightful. We spent two days together trying out two different looks for my wedding. Beyond being artistic and super creative, she listened to me and what I wanted to create in my look. She augmented my vision with her own ideas and accentuated all of my greatest features. Beyond that, she's beautiful and funny and she makes the whole experience feel relaxing and joyful. Working with Emmy is literally a no-brainer. If you're looking for someone who has the breadth of knowledge and expertise for a wide variety of looks (including high drama looks) as well as someone who is wonderful to work with, you've found your gal. If I do a photoshoot in Tofino in the future, she'll be my go-to gal without hesitation.
Never have I ever felt so beautiful. I learned so much about makeup and hair on top of being pampered. It was fun, enjoyable and relaxing. If I could hire The Knot to do this everyday, I would. I felt like a movie star.
