Wonderful!

I am not used to hair and make up and she did a wonderful job of understanding what I wanted and making me feel comfortable. She also kept me calm throughout the morning. Thank you!

A fantastic choice for this indecisive bride!

Fran provided hair and make up for myself (bride) and my mom. I wasn't the easiest in terms of availability/communication or decisiveness, not actually deciding on the look and style I wanted until I was sat in the chair on the morning of the wedding. I didn't have a trial (my choice due to time constraints) but had complete faith that Fran would be able to make me look my absolute best and trusted her judgement in what would work with the dress and accessories that I had. I have shoulder length hair that isn't the thickest and was torn between Hollywood glam-style waves and a rustic, wavy half-up/half-down look with flowers. Fran managed to combine the two looks flawlessly so that I had the best of both. My make up request was for her to show me, but the very best version of me. She is creative and up for a challenge while being laid back and flexible. She did everything that I wanted and more - I had so many complements on how beautiful I looked.
Trust that Fran can create whatever look or vision that you have for your special day - whether that is a very defined and specific one, or one as vague as mine. We're still waiting on our professional photos but I can't wait to see them. Thank you Fran.

Wedding miracle worker !

Fran is an amazing women, professional, reliable and so friendly. I am in my mid fifties and she worked miracles which made me feel special on my wedding day. Both daughters had high expectations for their hair and make up and couldn’t believe how much Fran managed to replica the pictures they sent her. Highly recommend for any occasion. Not enough stars to tick !

The best decision I made for my wedding!

Fran is a fantastic hair and makeup artist. She made me feel and look like a million dollars. She was friendly, good time keeping, sociable and she went above and beyond her job by assisting me getting dressed. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Just the BEST!

I cannot recommend Frances highly enough. From the start communication was excellent. She was professional and took time to listen to what I wanted but also gave brilliant suggestions which was much appreciated - She knows what she is doing!!! On the morning of the wedding we found it difficult to find an area with enough room and light but Frances quickly found a solution. We then had a minor hiccup as there was a power cut, not ideal when doing 5 bridesmaids plus my hair! Frances remained calm and kept everyone else calm too. We were over the moon with what she and her lovely assistant did. Thank you Fran, you are fabulous x

Complete perfection

Fran was absolutely amazing. She made me feel at ease, listened to the style of makeup I wanted and matched my complexion perfectly. She was able to work with the headpiece I had bought and gave me some really useful tips and tricks for my wedding day. I booked in for hair and makeup for myself, 1 flower girl hair and 2 bridesmaids hair and makeup. My hair looked amazing on my wedding day and stayed in for the whole day and my makeup was flawless, I had so many lovely compliments about how amazing my hair and makeup looked on the day. My flower girl looked absolutely stunning and my bridesmaids hair and makeup was just beautiful. I would 100% recommend Fran. A friendly, bubbly and extremely talented lady. Thank you for making me feel like a fairytale princess on my wedding day!

Magical, Outstanding, funny!

Well where do I start.
Fran is just incredible, she is such a character, she honest, professional, so knowledgeable & Sooo funny. My whole bridal party raved about her, so easy to get along with, you feel calm, at ease & you really trust her.

Fran knows her make-up, she made everyone look outstandingly beautiful. My bridesmaids are all opposite ends in the make-up scale in terms of their preferences, she adjusted to everyone & really listened to that they wanted then worked her magic. My bridal make-up was just so on point. I gave her free reign on my face & wow did she deliver.

Fran is quick to response to messages, she didn't rush on the trial or on the big day. Fran is honestly just brilliant. Stop right here & 100% book her.

A fantastic job!

Fran did an absolutely brilliant job for my wedding. Myself, two bridesmaids, two flower girls and the mother of groom all had our hair and makeup done in plenty of time for the ceremony. Fran was great at keeping everything running calmly and smoothly. As someone with very little experience of makeup she was excellent at guiding me in the right direction and I was thrilled with the results.

Quirky, fun and great results

I had a great experience with Fran, she made me and my bridal party feel amazing on the day- she listened to all their requests and tailored their hair and makeup to what they wanted- they all looked beautiful. We were tight for timing as there was a few of us but she kept me calm the whole time and worked super hard (non stop no break) to get everyone ready on time. Fran also has an hilarious personality and was chatting away with my bridal party which was really nice as we were getting ready for hours. Thank you for your time Fran- it’s greatly appreciated xx

Bridal party hair and make up

Thank you Fran
It was an honour to be able to have you do mine and all the girls hair and make up for my wedding, Made us us all looks absolutely amazing and made the day very special. I can be very indecisive but you was very patient and made me so relaxed. I can’t thank you enough for everything you did.
