Amazing make-up from Rachel!

Rachel was my wedding day make-up artist, also doing make-up for my mum and sister. My childhood hairdresser was doing our hair and despite not meeting her until the day itself, Rachel was so professional and the two worked seamlessly and flexibly together to make sure everything ran smoothly. I hardly wear any make-up normally so was a little apprehensive about someone else doing my make-up, but Rachel understood what I was looking for and gave me the most amazing natural look that stayed put all day - even after I shed a few tears! Couldn't recommend Rachel enough for your wedding day make-up!

Exceptional!

Rachel did my wedding hair and make up (as well as my bridesmaids hair), and it was exceptional! I am super fussy, natural curls and don’t like a lot of make up, and she did an amazing job. Looked flawless, so natural, and she was happy to work with everything I wanted! My bridesmaids also looked amazing! She was super friendly, calm and relaxed throughout both trial and the big morning, and really made the morning what it was. Thank you so much!

Rachel is such a fun asset to your wedding morning, keeps you calm, fits in perfectly with you bridal party and is an all round 10/10. I LOVED my hair and make up. I couldn’t have been happier. Book Rachel because you will not regret it. THANK

Wedding hair and makeup for bride, mother of the bride and 4 bridesmaids

Rachel was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. I really enjoyed my trial, she was professional, friendly and made me feel at ease. On the wedding day itself, timings ran smoothly and everyone involved felt the most beautiful version of themselves - we were really happy with the photographs. As people who don’t wear much make up at all (myself and my mum/ bridesmaids) I would recommend Rachel highly as she understood the brief completely and ensured that we looked flawless and glamorous but without it feeling too much or not like ourselves. I found Rachel fairly randomly but it was one of the best decisions I made and I would highly recommend her.

Couldn't be happier with my experience with Rachel

I can't recommend Rachel enough. Before the trial and wedding, she was really quick to respond and easy to communicate with. My hair and make up looked wonderful at the trial and on our wedding day, and she did a great job with my mum and bridesmaids too. Some people in my party weren't that used to wearing makeup, and she tailored their looks to their needs and make them feel really good. In addition, she is a lovely, warm person to be around and is a great addition to your wedding day!

Loved my hair and make up!

Rachael did my hair and make up (and bridesmaids) in October 2022, and it looked incredible! She was so calming to have on the day, and everything went so smoothly.
I accidentally fell asleep in my make up and it still looked amazing the next morning, would definitely recommend - thank you so much! ☺️
