I just wanted to wing you a quick email to say from the bottom of my heart, thank you SO much for the incredible job you did doing makeup and hair for my mother- and sister-in-law. Firstly, they looked absolutely incredible. The whole day and night.  Tracy kept being told how young she looked, that she was like Spencer’s sister! Grace was saying how much she loved it being done and how relaxing it was.  Secondly… Not only doing an amazing job, but for putting them at ease. They were so comfortable and said how easy you made it in the morning – Tracy told me she had a bit of a wobble after you first did her makeup, but you were so complimentary and told her to trust you… And she was beyond happy with how it looked. It really made their day.  I know this is a pretty gushy email but I just wanted to say thank you, they both looked incredible.”

Nikki, Sir Harold Hillier Gardens, September 2014 wedding

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for doing my make up on the 15th August. I have read your lovely blog and seen the pictures and it just makes me want to do it all over again! You played a huge part in making me feel like a princess for the day and I’m so glad that I found you. My make up lasted well into the early hours without any touch ups whatsoever (apart from the lippy of course!). Thank you for your lovely comments, we had the most perfect day.”
