Absolute Perfection! :)
I had my wedding less than a week ago and I'm already in a hurry to rave about how brilliant Gemma was for both my hair and make-up as well as for my bridesmaids! Firstly she was prompt in getting in touch regarding availability, options and quotes and gave excellent advice. I then had my trial, where I arrived not fully knowing what I wanted but with a few ideas. Gemma quickly took those ideas and turned them into something that not only looked amazing, but suited me and was pitched just right for my dress and style of wedding. Gemma is friendly and approachable and clearly knows her trade inside out! I walked away from the trial feeling radiant and full of confidence that I was in the best possible hands. On the wedding days itself, Gemma arrived bang on time and quickly set herself up with her very impressive array of professional kit. She worked between me and my bridesmaid's so swiftly and calmly that any nerves soon melted away. My bridesmaids are 9 and 13, so very different ages and attitudes to 'dressing-up', but Gemma helped us to select a style that would suit them both and would not only look wonderful, but also be something they would be happy with too. Gemma worked non-stop to make sure we were all ready with plenty of time to spare and left with no trace except for us all feeling pampered and looking at our very best. My wedding was on one of the hottest days of the year, but all of our hair and make-up stayed in place perfectly throughout the entire day! So many of my friends and family complimented her work and the photos are testament to her skill. I can't recommend Gemma enough, she was my superstar! Many thanks, Adele ChapmanSent on 22/07/2021

Relaxing wedding morning
Gemma has been amazing from beginning to end. My trial was brilliant and really personal and on the day Gemma did my own hair as well as my two sisters in laws and mothers.Sent on 19/07/2021
Gemma Howard-Masters's reply:Awww thank you Kirsten! My absolute pleasure I loved every minute of your wedding morning! So much fun. Wishing you and George a wonderful future. Best wishes. Xx
It was perfect!
I absolutely LOVED my hair and make-up. It was perfect! My mum too (although initially a little worried as it was more than she would usually wear) felt amazing too. Everyone was complimenting her on how glam she looked and a family friend who she had known since I was a baby said he had never seen her look so good!!Sent on 13/06/2019
In fact we were both gutted when we had to get ready for bed and take it all off - we are already plotting when we might have a good enough excuse to get glammed up again!!
You were a key part in making it a truly perfect day.
