I was lucky enough to find Kate for my bridal make up. From the onset she was professional and efficient at liaising with me and I felt confident that she was going to be reliable when I had so many other things to organize! From the trial to the day itself I was not disappointed! Kate provided me with sound, realistic advice as to what would work well for my hair and the look I was trying to achieve on the day. She had a calming, reassuring disposition and a real knowledge of creating a beautiful look which was completely natural, exactly what I was looking for! Plus all importantly she was a lovely, unobtrusive person to have around when you are in the throws of wedding chaos and trying to get to the church on time!! I would have no hesitation recommending Kate for a wedding or any special occasion where you want to feel comfortable, confident and look extra special!

Kate did an absolutely amazing job at my wedding in August.  I couldn't be more pleased for my hair and makeup, and so was my bridal party. When I entered into the ceremony room everyone was in awe with how pretty my mum and I looked. We received so many compliments throughout the day! I felt that the preparation with Kate really helped me feel relax and ready for the whole wedding. The other best thing is we thoroughly enjoyed the process of working with Kate. She's very fun, friendly, reliable and professional. Thank you so much for your magical work!

Hiring Kate to do my bridal hair and make-up, apart from marrying my husband, was the best decision I made on my wedding day.  Kate delivered above and beyond my expectations - providing me with an edgier and less traditional bridal look that I'd hoped for, even responding to a last minute change to my brief on the morning of my wedding!  My make-up was subtle, cool and flattering and I felt beautiful for my entire wedding day, as did the rest of the bridal party whom Kate also worked her magic on. Kate is a skilled professional, she's a pleasure to work with, I cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you

A huge thank you to Kate for making me look my absolute best on my wedding day!  She is extremely talented!  My hair is very difficult to style being so straight, thick and silky, it takes a miracle for my hair to hold any kind of curl and Kate managed it and not only that but she managed to style it to.  Despite me changing the style since having my trial and the wedding day, through a mixture of ideas found on Pinterest she created exactly what I had pictured!  As for my make-up, it was amazing!  Again, since the trial I had changed slightly what I wanted and she so kindly accommodated, created and me look what every woman wants on her wedding day, a vision of beauty.  She had also done my maid of honour’s (sister’s) make-up and did for her as she did for me, make her look amazing too!  On the day, Kate brought with her her lovely self, her easy to talk to personality and her calming vibe.  I cannot thank you enough for being there on my special day and making me look better than I could've imagined on my wedding day!
