Lovely ladies and very professional service
I decided to book A Finishing Touch at the last minute for my small COVID wedding, and I am so glad I did. The service was very high quality and professional and Jassi put me at ease and was very accommodating as I kept changing my mind! Would definitely recommend.Sent on 30/12/2020

I’m not from West Berkshire area so choosing a Hair and Make Up artist for my wedding in May 2020 was a bit of a gamble, but I definitely found a diamond with Catherine Edwards @ AFT UK .
I don’t wear a lot of make-up, so I was a little apprehensive, but after our first design consultation in February, Catherine made me feel very welcome and at ease and knew exactly how to make up ‘my look’ for my special day.
Due to Covid and two Lockdowns my wedding date was postponed three times, so we had ample time to exchange emails and then a final zoom call to make sure that we knew exactly how I was going to look on the big day. Throughout this time Catherine gave advice on what hair accessories would look the best, even suggestions of where to purchase from and going that extra mile to offer direction on what colour nail polish would complement my dress. She was very professional throughout and had an extensive range of make up for seemingly all types of skin and tones, always explaining what she was doing and why, as well as offering her expertise on daily routines for make-up and skincare.
I loved my wedding day and the services that Catherine offers, and would 100% recommend her.

Heart of Gold!
You have been an absolute joy to work with. You not only are professionally on point with makeup/ hair standards on fleek but you also know how to make your brides feel so relaxed and at ease. You went above and beyond, not only caring about making sure I looked good but even helped my sister do some last minute stickering on to a mirror. I love your character Katherine and I would recommend you to my friends in a heartbeat.Sent on 05/12/2020
