Making up the bride was the perfect addition to my big day
Tracy understood perfectly the boho, Festival vibe I wanted for my big day, she had the creativity to transform my Pinterest boards and aspirations of Kate Moss into a reality. She and her magic fingers made me look amazing. I wanted to achieve the balance of looking sensational and also carefree and natural, to fit with our Festival Wedding vibe.Sent on 15/02/2018
Tracy instantly became part of my Wedding A team, in the build-up, she provided expert guidance and support, helping me make my dream Juliet veil work by suggesting the right pins to use and sharing fantastic tips and tricks on products, skin and hair care.
On the big day, she was the perfect addition to the bridal team, providing fantastic laughter and calm around the chaos of the wedding morning.
I was so, so, so happy with the way I looked, my hair was so perfect it stayed in place for the duration of the festival wedding, 2 days! I’m so grateful I followed her advice and didn’t have fake hair or lashes, I still can’t believe that it’s all mine!
Thank you, Tracey, for being amazing and giving me tips that for the honeymoon and beyond, my skin has never looked so good!
I cannot recommend her and her team enough! Thank you for making my perfect day even more perfect! Verity x
