Kate is amazing at what she does

Hired Kate to do hair and make-up for my wedding and she was absolutely fantastic. Not only is she a lovely person, but she is super talented. I can honestly say that I have never looked so good. The make-up was the perfect combination of made up and natural and lasted all day/night, and I honestly have no idea how she managed to create my hairdo, it was incredible. Thank you very much Kate! x

An absolute dream

Kate was an absolute dream, right from the moment I first contacted her she has been responsive, flexible, helpful, and just great to work with. I had to add and remove a bunch of people multiple times as my family kept changing their minds and Kate was always able to accommodate.

She helped me pick my wedding day look when I was a bit unsure of what to do and was so helpful on trial day making all the decisions, and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. My hair and makeup lasted all day and evening, and still looked fabulous when I went to take it off.

Kate and her assistant Harriet (also a dream!) did hair and makeup for me (the bride) and 3 bridesmaids, as well as hair for the MOB, flower girl and my new sister in law.

They both also did an amazing job on my bridal party and family who all have very different tastes, and they all looked BEAUTIFUL. Especially great with my flower girl, who usually struggles to sit still for 5 minutes, but was an absolute dream with a complicated hair style (and it stayed in all evening!!).

And if that wasn't enough, Kate stayed all the way to the moment I entered the ceremony room, just to be sure that I didn't need any touch ups and all looked good, a bit of moral support, and an assist in getting my big train down the stairs!

Kate wasn't just an excellent HMUA but also a font of wedding prep knowledge and advice (from helping my bridesmaids get me into my bridal hoop to advice on a tricky steamer!), and a general calming presence on a stressful morning in our bridal prep suite.

An absolute gem, do not hesitate to book her for your wedding!

Fantastic hair and makeup - perfect for shy people!

Kate is an incredible hair and make up artist who made me and my bridal party feel so looked after!

Self worth wise I really struggle with paying attention to making myself feel beautiful, but Kate really made me feel like I was important and worthy enough to enjoy myself and the experience!

We would all highly recommend Kate and Debs for your wedding day!

Couldn’t find a fault!

Kate was brilliant - she was very attentive, listened to exactly what I wanted, took her time to get the perfect look during the trial, and made me feel so relaxed on the wedding morning. She was the perfect balance of professional and friendly. I absolutely loved my hair and makeup, and felt amazing on the wedding day. I wouldn’t change a thing! Kate did my sister’s hair and make up too, and she was also really happy. I’d 100% recommend Kate for your big day.

Professional, reliable and did exactly what I asked for

I would highly recommend Kate, she did such a fantastic job with my hair and makeup for my wedding. We had a small wedding due to Covid and Kate was understanding and followed all the guildlines. She also created a natural look that I was after, thank you Kate

Truly fantastic from start to finish, loved the interaction with Katie.

Katie won me over with her professionalism and warmth right from her first email. Katie was incredibly helpful to offer some fantastic ideas, and I was so impressed with her relaxed, friendly manner and warmth. She is very polite, approachable, intuitive and best of all. I was so delighted with the trail and make-up, I looked and felt like a bride the instant I looked into the mirrow and went “wow, I really like it”. Thank you Katie for making me a beautiful bride on the wedding day with your midas touch. I really could not have asked for anything better.

The end results are very beautiful

Kate Waller did such a beautiful job applying make up to 4 young ladies in my photography
studio for a 13th birthday party. Kate was kind and friendly with all the girls and helped them feel
relaxed and special getting their make up done professionally in the Hollywood style make up
chair she brought along with her. The end results are very beautiful and she enhanced the girls
natural beauty selecting colours that complimented their skin tone. I look forward to working with
Kate again in the future

such a wonderful morning. I could not recommend Kate enough x

My makeup on the day was exactly what I had wanted and it lasted all day

Kate did my bridal makeup for me and I can not recommend her more. My makeup on the day
was exactly what I had wanted and it lasted all day. Kate was so lovely the morning of the
wedding and she even came up to London for a trial run.
