Hi Ali
Just wanted to say thank you so much for the time you spent making me up, I really did feel like a princess and had an absolutely perfect day. Colin’s first word when I reached him at the top of the aisle was “wow” and I will never forget that. I felt like a million dollars and everyone complimented me, my bridesmaids and my beautiful Mum on our make-up and nails.
Thanks Ali.

Hi Alison! It’s Holly Adams here, you did my make-up for me in August for my wedding! I hope you are keeping well? I was wondering if you could tell me what the lotion was that you put on before applying the make-up to calm my skin down, I would really like to get some, I though it was fantastic! I just wanted to say an enormous thank you to you again for doing a wonderful job with my make-up on the day! I was so pleased with it, big, big thanks! Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Holly

I can't recommend Alison highly enough! She did my wedding day make up for myself, two bridesmaids and my mum - we received so many compliments all day and the make up stayed looking beautiful all day, through crying, dancing and a lot of greeting guests! Alison is friendly, professional and a very calming influence - she also took each person's individual requests on board when doing the make up which was much appreciated. Thank you so much!

Kim Leith
Hi Ali,
I just want to say a massive thank you for the wonderful job you did of my make-up and nails. Everyone commented on how lovely my make-up looked, it looked amazing. I have seen many photos from family and friends, our professional ones will be ready soon but just by looking at family & friends photos I could see how much of an excellent job you did for me, so THANKS!

Carly

Hi Alison
I wanted to say a massive thank you for doing our make up on Saturday 28th June at Hotel Felix. You are such a lovely person to be around, and your work was perfect, we didn’t have to touch it all day! Very best wishes,

Melanie

Dear Alison,
Sorry it has taken me so long to get back in touch with you, but post wedding sorting appears to be as hectic as pre wedding planning! Thank you so much for the work you did on our make-up and nails on the morning of our wedding. Everyone commented on how nice the make up was considering none of us ever really wear any make up!!!! I Hope your summer continues to be busy and thank you once again for thr fantastic job that you did.
Kind Regards.

Becky Carrington

Dear Alison,
I just wanted to say thank you for doing mine and my sisters make up for my wedding at Downing College. You did an amazing job and we’re both really pleased with the way we looked. What’s more, you were so calm and professional, exactly what’s needed before a wedding. We were so impressed, not only by your skills as a make up artist but also by your attitude and professionalism. So, very many thanks once again.

Emily Hays

Hi,
I am now back from honeymoon and just wanted to say what a fantastic job you did last Saturday – i’m so sorry i didn’t say goodbye properly, i was upstairs in a panic desperately trying to get ready, but i didn’t want to come across rude. I will have to show you some pics, if you’re still ok for August 16th, would be great! I will def be recommending you to future brides as well! thanks

Emily

Hi Ali,
Thanks so much for yesterday. Loads of people commented on how nice my makeup was, particularly the eyes! It stayed on all day and i totally loved it, so did Tom! I’ll send you a photo as soon as we’re back. Thanks again, Lyndsey


Lyndsey

Ali,
Thank you so much for the manicures and makeup. As soon as we had come for the trial, i had no doubts in your ability to do wonderful makeup on the day.
Best wishes

Catherine

Alison did my wedding make up along with my beautiful bridesmaids at south farm in October. I cannot recommend her enough, she was so calming on the day and her skills in make up are incredible! She is professional and so flexible, ensuring she fitted in around the day! I promise if you book her you will not be disappointed.Thank you so much Alison, you made me feel a million dollars on my special day xxx

Ruth Ramtohul
Alison did make up for myself, my maid of honour, my bridesmaid, my Mum and my 2 flower girls for my wedding in August. Alison was absolutely fantastic both on the day and during the trials. The make up she did on my wedding was beautiful both in the photographs and in “real life” and lasted the whole day. I would have no hesitation in recommending Alison for any occasion - my sister has already booked her for her wedding next year.

Laura

Dear Alison,
I just wanted to say thank you for doing my make up for my Hen night and Wedding day, I had a lot of compliments on how natural it looked and it lasted all day (and there was alot of dancing involved!!!!). Thank you also for doing the make up for all the Bridesmaids and the Mums they all looked stunning. I felt completely at ease with you as you were extremely professional and that helped me calm me on the morning of the wedding. I will have no problem in recommending you to anyone who needs their make up done. Thank you again
