“Dear Frances, Thank you so much for my beautiful make-up for my wedding on Saturday! From first meeting you at the Penton Park wedding fair I was instantly drawn to how lovely you were. In the lead up to the big day your organisation was brilliant and the make up trial really helped me decide what I wanted for the big day! Your expertise are phenomenal and you were always eager to make me feel comfortable and relaxed with the look you were creating. I will not hesitate to recommend you to everyone in the future. Thank you! xx”
