Amazing! Bethany is absolutely great at what she does! Can’t recommend her enough!

I had absolutely no idea where to start when choosing a make up and hair stylist. When I came across Bethany I completely stalked her Instagram page to see the different styles she did and I was immediately in love with what she could do. I’m not a big make up girl so I knew I wanted natural but a little bit more glam than I normally would wear. (I cannot do eyeshadow or eyeliner for the life of me. I’m just a foundation and mascara girl normally) Bethany knew exactly what I meant and did my makeup spot on. She asked me what lipstick is my favourite that I tend to use and she used that to go off what tones I would prefer.
I also loved the fact that she does hair too! Just made more sense for me to have one person working on the whole look. I showed her a picture of what I wanted and she re-created it spot on! I was in love with the whole look. I got so many compliments and it all stayed in place from morning to bedtime!

A* glam wedding experience

I can’t thank Bethany and Millie (hair) enough for our wedding hair and make up. The trial with Bethany was one of my favourite parts of my wedding prep and my mum loved being pampered. Bethany totally understands a brief for a beautiful glow up and uses the best products . The wedding morning was smooth sailing and the bride squad all looked gorgeous. Thank you - A* supplier ; 100% recommended

Beautiful hair and makeup by an expert

I am so grateful to Bethany and her assistant (Millie) for doing the hair and makeup for myself and my bridal party. When I met Bethany at my trial she instantly put me at ease. I felt that she understood the look I wanted to achieve and made it a reality. On the morning of the wedding Bethany and her assistant were all set up when we arrived. They created a really calm environment and we felt we were being looked after by experts. When they finished, we all looked amazing and we were ready with plenty of time to take pictures prior to the ceremony. Bethany even helped me to get into my dress and put my veil on! I would highly recommend Bethany not just because she is an excellent hair and makeup artist, but also because she is friendly and helpful. Thank you Bethany for helping me feel confident on the most special day of my life!

Absolutely amazing

Bethany was amazing. I was very nervous and overwhelmed on the day but Bethany remained calm and friendly and completely put me at ease.
From the initial enquiry through to the trial and wedding day Bethany was a pleasure to deal with.
She was more than happy to tweak my hair with some of my suggestions and knew exactly what makeup colours and style suited me. I was thrilled with the end result.
Several guests commented on my hair and makeup and my new husband told me I looked stunning!
I highly recommend Bethany. I could not have been happier, thank you x

Amazing experience before and on the day!

Bethany was an incredible make up artist! We were planning the wedding from abroad and she was really responsive over email, incredibly organised and willing to work with me on our availability in the UK. She was so wonderful on the day, exactly the sort of person you want when you're getting ready! Helped so much with nerves, organisational tips and fake lash advice for my bridesmaids! The make-up and hair was incredible too and stayed perfect all day. Cannot recommend enough!

Incredible

Bethany did the hair for me and 4 bridesmaids for my wedding. Not only was she able to accommodate everyone’s individual styles using the reference pictures that my girls had sent but she made us all feel beautiful and confident.

Bethany kept us on schedule all morning letting everyone know what needed to be done and when.

She reminded me when I needed to get my dress on. Nothing was too much to ask. She even helped me put my shoes on once I was in my dress.

She made us all feel completely at ease and it was like having another friend around on the wedding morning.

To say I’d recommend Bethany feels like an understatement. She was just absolutely incredible from the moment we arrived. 10/10

Bethany was amazing!

Being a professional make up novice myself Bethany was amazing from start to finish and giving advice and guidance. On the morning of my wedding and in the trial Bethany made me feel so at ease and her products were great too. I was worried about looking like I had too much make up on but Bethany made me look and feel amazing! She helped with making me feel at ease, had a laugh with my bridal party, helped me into my dress and even put some make up on my Man of Honour last minute! Bethany went over and above with her make up service and I’d recommend her in a heartbeat!

Bethany was amazing and I cannot thank her enough for doing mine and my bridesmaids make up and hair which exceeded our expectations. Bethany was really calming on the day and made me feel completely relaxed. She also listened to any slight adjustment that I wanted after the trial. I would highly recommend Bethany to anyone who is looking for someone on their big day. She is truly amazing!

Wedding hair and make up artist.

Bethany and her assistance were so amazing at their job! Me as the bride and my bridesmaids were so happy with our hair and make - so natural looking. Bethany was extremely friendly and also they helped to assist us when we were about to leave for the church. It made the morning of the wedding incredibly special.

Thank you so much Bethany

Leanne and bridesmaids 💕

Perfect, perfect, perfect!

I found Bethany on Hitched and looked through her social media and website and knew she was the one I wanted. Exceptional customer service and so talented! Bethany did my (bride) hair and make up, along with 2 bridesmaids. We really felt special and comfortable with Bethany straight away. So very pleased with everything, thoroughly recommend to all.

Excellent!

Bethany was so fabulous and made me feel like a princess on my wedding day. I was very nervous about make up and hair in general but she gave me loads of advice and took all my wishes into account so on my wedding I was absolutely amazed at her work. She was also very flexible when various aunties and sisters wanted their hair and make up done too. We ended up having 10 people having their hair and make up done on the day and the wonderful Bethany organised a team of beauticians to help us - it was awesome and so well organised. Would totally recommend to anyone. Thank you so much Bethany, for making me feel beautiful on the most important day of my life!

One of the best decisions I made for my wedding!

I cannot begin to recommend Bethany enough! She was always easily contactable from the moment of enquiry when I had even the tiniest question. The makeup and hair was beautiful and she took the time during the trial and through consultation to help me to confirm what my perfect look for the wedding was. Even on the day, Bethany helped to keep me and things around me relaxed and calm. 10/10 would recommend!

Perfect experience

I had my special day on 7th May I originally booked for myself and 4 bridesmaids hair and make up, when my mum a few weeks before the wedding mentioned she regrets not asking for it to be done so I asked Bethany and she added her on for of course a additional fee and a extra person which was required. Bethany was really great with all of us, friendly and helpful for those of my bridesmaids that don't normally wear make up they all loved it. Couldn't recommend her enough.

Amazing make up artist for my wedding!

Bethany is a fantastic hair and make up artist! We discussed everything at the trial and she used her talents to create the exact look I had in mind. On the day it was spot on and lasted all night. I had 5 bridesmaids and my mums make up done too, and they all loved it and was all very time efficient on the day. After the trial she provided me with a list of all the products to be used which was lovely.

She also went out of her way to make sure that her and assistant Claudia were there when things didn’t go to plan with an agency that i’d originally booked with. She understands how important it is that a bride has a reliable service for her big day!

She’s is skilled, professional and affordable all round, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Bethany!
