One of a kind

From day 1 Ellie was a superstar. I'm not overly familiar with different make up and chose Ellie at Elligance purely through online reviews and I was not disappointed. Excellent communication, guided me with when I needed to consider booking a trial etc, and was just brilliant throughout. The trial was reassuring and something I was initially nervous about but I left feeling confident I was going to look lovely on the day and still feeling like me.
The day of the wedding again Ellie was prompt, professional and great with all members of my family (who were also nervous and a little stressed!). They commented just how easy to talk to she was and how well she slotted into the morning chaos. The mother of the bride doesn't wear make up often and was a bit apprehensive about having it done but left feeling confident and comfortable.
I would recommend Ellie to anyone, a million times over. She delivered everything promised and more and I'll be forever grateful. I've never felt so beautiful. Thank you x

Just perfect!

I can’t express how grateful I am to Ellie for everything she did for myself and my sisters and mum on our big day, she made us all look and feel so amazing to the point where it made me emotional. Not only that but she’s just such a joy to be around which is so lovely on the morning of your wedding as it’s quite an emotional time. She made us all feel so at ease and comfortable. I cannot recommend her enough for hair and make up. She was spot on for all of us! It was also raining on my big day but my make up and hair was all still in place when I went up to go to bed.
Thank you so so much Ellie

The best MUA and hair you'll find!

Elle did a trial for me for my hair and make up for my wedding, which I thought was amazing and I was so happy. On my wedding day she did makeup and hair for my bridal party and myself. Everyone felt amazing, and I felt so confident. I was sad to wash off my make up and take out my hair at the end of the day. Elle is everything you want in a hair and make up artist, she is calm, professional down to earth and friendly. I would 100% recommend her to everyone. Thank you for making me feel a million dollars on my big day.

I felt so special

Ellie thank you so much for making me feel like the most special bride on my wedding day, my makeup and hair were amazing and lasted all day and night! I can’t thank you enough.
The morning spent with you pampering myself, the bridesmaids, my mum and my nan was soo much fun and you kept us all relaxed.
Everyone commented on how beautiful we all looked and I thank you for that!

Ellie is amazing!

Ellie did my wedding hair and makeup along with 2 of my bridesmaids and my step-mum. She is incredible and what she does, very professional but also so personable and fitted into my wedding morning so well. I had a trial beforehand and explained what I wanted and was completely listened to as to what I was after. She gave me exactly what I was after and I felt a million dollars on the day. Thank you so much Ellie xx

Amazing from start to finish. The only person I’ll ever use again!

After several disappointing trials (think really heavy & nothing like I asked for) I’d pretty much given up on my bridal hair & makeup. Along came Ellie to save the day! She was so attentive and professional in the trial, trying different hair styles & getting my feedback at every step. She really cared about giving me options & making sure I felt good on the day.

I was so impressed, she ended up doing my bridesmaids on the day too & they looked incredible.

The main thing I wanted was a natural, feminine look but something that would last the long (hot) day. It did just that & we were all thrilled.

THANK YOU!

Elli is Amazing!

Elli was amazing from the start. I don’t wear make up but want to look special on my big day and Elli made me feel comfortable when discussing what look I wanted. On the day she made me, my bridesmaids and mum look beautiful and made me feel so confident. I could not have asked for a better person to do my make up.’

Wedding Hair & Make-Up

Ellie did mine and my bridesmaid’s hair and make up on our lockdown Wedding Day last year and again this year when we celebrated our Wedding Blessing. Both times she was fantastic, creating a very natural and sophisticated look with the make-up as well as styling my hair exactly how I wanted it to make me feel like a princess. Ellie is very professional and made us feel totally relaxed on my big day, thank you so much! Would highly recommend.

Absolutely Perfect!

Ellie did an amazing job for my wedding day. We all loved out hair and make up. It lasted the whole day and I didn’t get a hair out of place.
She was so friendly and fun to have around in the Get Ready Room at our wedding venue and made sure we were all happy with how we looked and couldn’t have been more accommodating. Can’t thank her enough! Would highly recommend!
