    I felt so beautiful

    I am so glad I found Jess on here!! She was professional, friendly and so talented. She listened to my ideas and came up with something that suited me during the trial. On the actual wedding day, she was on time and brought a lovely calm energy as well. Thank you Jess xx

    Jess is amazing!

    Just like all the previous reviews, I can't recommend Jess highly enough! She was brilliant right from the trial (which was so much fun!) through to the day itself. It was like having one of my friends there, she made us feel so relaxed!
    If you are like me and didn't know exactly what you want Jess will definitely help and give advice and she was always on hand on watsapp if you needed to ask any questions ahead of the day which I found really useful.
    The amount of compliments I've had I will definitely be using Jess in the future for any special occasions and recommending her to all my friends :)

    So happy I found Jess!

    I was looking for someone who does amazing hair AND amazing makeup, it took me a while to find the perfect person but eventually I found Jess! We had a great trial before the day and then due to covid we had to reschedule the wedding a few times, it was a stressful time but Jess was so understanding and flexible.

    We all looked and felt amazing on the day, Jess is so calming and is just what you need on the morning of your wedding! I will be recommending her to everyone I know x

    Talented hair and makeup artist

    I was absolutely delighted with my wedding hair and makeup, Jess is so professional and creative. She was very calm on the wedding morning and also made it fun, exactly what you want! I opted for a natural makeup look with a classic and formal hairstyle and it was just as I had hoped for. I am a bit of a perfectionist, but I honestly couldn’t fault any of it. My hair and makeup stayed in place all day and I have no hesitation in recommending Jess.

    Perfect

    Jess is incredible! My makeup for my wedding day was one of the biggest things for me. I spent ages asking people for recommendations and searching the internet. As soon as I found Jess I was so relieved. She was amazing my mum, bridesmaids and myself looked flawless on the day, highly recommend.

    Absolutely amazing!

    Jess made me look stunning on my wedding day, one of my friends said I looked like a movie star. I was so thrilled and I felt amazing all day. I couldn't have felt more comfortable with the whole process, I was a little nervous beforehand as I don't wear a lot of makeup normally but she created a very natural look and my hair up arrangement looked beautiful even though I wasn't really sure what I wanted at the beginning. I had so many lovely comments from people. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jess to anyone, I'm so glad I chose her for my special day, she was amazing and such a lovely person!

    Amazing!

    Jessica did an amazing job from start to finish for my wedding. She listened to what I was after and made my vision come to life. I felt glamorous and beautiful but not over done. For someone like me who never wears makeup, she made it seem natural and made me look amazing. She was friendly and helped us all relax on the day of my wedding. I could not have asked for a more talented professional. She worked her magic on my wedding party even though we were in tight quarters. If you are looking for someone to help you feel special on your special days, she is the lady for you. I can't recommend her more highly.

    Highly recommended

    Jessica is a lovely person and an amazing hair and make up artist, she made my mum and I feel like princesses at the trial and on my wedding day. She took all of the stress out of doing our hair and makeup ourselves, and did an amazing job. I have never felt so good and my hair and makeup lasted all day and night! Thanks so much Jessica

    So happy I chose Jess!

    Jessica was such a calming influence on my wedding morning. She and her assistant did such a good job for all 6 of us ladies and we all commented afterwards how she really put everyone at ease. I was such a blinker and she was so patient doing my lashes! I was even more happy with my hair on the day than when I had my trial done and everything stayed put until the evening. Thanks so much Jess for making us all look beautiful :-)

    Perfect!

    I can't recommend Jess more highly! I was very nervous about getting my hair and make up done for my wedding but Jess put me completely at ease. During my trial she listened carefully to what I wanted and made lots of helpful suggestions. Jess achieved the 'natural look' I wanted and I loved the way she attached some flowers in my hair. Jess is professional, reliable and very friendly. She helped to keep myself, three bridesmaids and the mother of the bride calm on the day!

    Definitely Recommend - amazing

    Jessica was fantastic - from the start she was quick to answer all of my many emails and questions, giving me really helpful advice. I had a hair and makeup trial about a month prior to the wedding which made me much more reassured that I was in such safe hands for the day! She was really friendly and adaptable, taking in all my thoughts and ideas.

    On the day, Jess managed to make me feel (and look) gorgeous, whilst also maintaining the natural look I had wanted. My bridesmaid, Mum and Mother-in-Law were also included - I was worried about time management but Jess (and Sadie) emailed me prior with the timings and were incredibly organised. Absolutely no stress!

    Getting ready in the morning was really fun and relaxed - and I have Jess to thank for that! So highly recommend.

    Better than I could have imagined for on my wedding day!

    Jessica did an absolutely amazing job at my April Wedding. With Hair and Makeup for myself and my mom, as well as hair styling for 5 bridesmaids and a flower girl, she had a LOT on her plate that day. She did a great job preparing all of us though. She stayed calm the whole time and made sure that everyone looked beautiful. I was constantly getting compliments throughout the day on how lovely I looked and I think a big part of it was the hair and makeup, which held up amazingly well the whole day and was exactly what I wanted. I can't say enough nice things about my whole experience with Jessica. I would HIGHLY recommend this great hair and makeup artist to every bride.

    Everything a bride could want

    Jess did my hair for my December wedding - as well as my 4 bridesmaids and my Mum. We all absolutely love what Jess did - my hair was everything I wanted it to be and more! Jess was also really flexible with styles - all of my bridesmaids wanted something different to suit their individual styles, and Jess created something they all loved. I would highly recommend to all brides - Jess is really calm and exactly who you want to trust with your hair on the most important day of your life! Thank you so much Jess! x

    Amazing

    Jessica was responsible for the hair and makeup for myself, my 2 bridesmaids and flower girl and she was amazing!

    I had no idea what I wanted other than a couple of vague pinterest pins, and at my trial Jessica was great at nudging me in the direction of colours and styles that I may like and making me feel really confident that I would be comfortable with her on the day.

    On the day itself Jessica was super prompt and a great presence to have in the room with us whilst getting ready. She was completely unflappable despite my Dad's constant worry we were running out of time (which we weren't!!!) and my bridesmaids looked amazing and felt it too. My little flower girl was desperate to be "one of the girls" and have her hair and makeup done also and Jessica made her feel like a princess!

    Our hair and makeup stayed in place till the end, and that is despite some vigorous air guitar-ring!

    I couldn't recommend Jessica enough for your big day.

    The perfect look for our perfect day

    Jessica did a great job with my hair and make up. I’m so glad we did the trial to experiment with what I was wanting to achieve. On the day it all went really well and my hair stayed in style all day! I was also looking for a natural look and she really achieved the balance of looking my best but not overly made up. I would definitely recommend Jessica. On the day she was calm and very organised which was very welcome when you’re full of butterflies!
