"I had every confidence in my hair and make-up after my trial with Fenella, so I could just sit back and let her work her magic on the day. She was great at dealing with some last-minute eczema worries, and made sure I looked perfect..."

"Thank you very much for all your hard work on the morning of my wedding. The girls and I looked lovely and the airbrushing lasted amazingly well. I loved how you added the eye lash extensions in, too. Not too over the top, but just a little something extra. You covered my skin really well and it looks flawless in the photos. Thank you again for everything."

"We all loved your calm and professional attitude throughout the whole process, and all of our guests commented on how lovely our hair and make-up looked on the day. I was especially impressed with how creative you are, creating the perfect hairstyle without practicing it first, thank you."

Testimonials

"I had always imagined I would be a nervous bride, but on my wedding day nothing could have been further from the truth, I was calm, happy and very excited and I owe so much of this to Fenella. I had complete confidence in her ability to transform me from a raggedy, sleepy, jittery lady into a gorgeous bride! I had vague ideas about how I wanted my bridesmaids and I to look (natural, dewy make-up, pretty, intricate hair), Fenella really made this happen, and she did it with such style and attention to detail. I loved my wedding hair and make-up, I really did feel so beautiful and I loved having Fenella there with me on my wedding morning, she's a complete pro but she's also one of the loveliest people to spend a potentially nerve wracking morning with! I can't recommend her highly enough."

"I wanted to say a big thank you for my beautiful bridal hair and make-up. I loved my look on the day - very natural but at the same time I felt like a bride! Thanks also for helping me relax during the morning - your calming influence definitely helped! The bridesmaids, mum and mother of the groom looked beautiful and were also very happy with their hair and make-up."

Not only was your influence incredibly calming but you made me feel like the best version of myself which gave me so much confidence so thank you! It was a joy to have you at our home and you were so kind to be so flexible with the hectic-ness that happens with weddings. You did an amazing job."
