Brilliant!

I can’t thank you and your assistant enough for your brilliant work and professionalism on our big day. When I said I needed to be ready for a certain time you kept to a tight schedule and I am someone who appreciates that more than anything!
Every one of my bridesmaids felt glamorous and commented on how amazing they felt wearing the make up and hairstyles you created.
Our make up stayed put whilst we danced the night away and until the very end in the bar for post-wedding drinks (as if they are needed haha).
I myself will be recommending your talents to anyone who is considering a make up artist for a special event and hope I will have the opportunity to meet you again in the future for more glamorising!

"Thank you so much Abbi! All my bridesmaids looked completely stunning and exactly how I'd imagined, they all said how fabulous they felt which was the most important thing for me. You were friendly and calm and lovely to have around on the morning of the wedding, somehow you managed to get everyone done with no rushing and they all looked completely gorgeous."

"Abbi was wonderful at our trial and on the morning of my wedding - she was very professional as well as being super friendly and helpful. All the bridesmaids and myself felt fantastic and both the hair and make-up lasted all day. I loved being pampered and definitely felt like a princess. Thanks so much Abbi!"

I can safely say Abi made my bridesmaids look and feel absolutely amazing!!! Their make up was stunning and each of them had unique, soft, plaited hair styles to go with the countryside wedding. Abi was so lovely to have around on the wedding morning, she was calm and fun and got everyone done in plenty of time and was even kind enough to make- up my mother last minute too. I couldn’t have wished for anyone better. Thank you so much Abi!!
