First and foremost, Kelly was an absolute delight to work with. She immediately put me at ease with her warm personality, genuine enthusiasm, and her ability to truly listen. She was not just a makeup artist; she was a friend throughout the entire process. Her passion for her craft was evident in every brush stroke, and it was infectious. I couldn't help but feel excited and confident in her abilities. I had an amazing time on my wedding day, and I owe it all to the incredible talents of Kelly. From the moment I met Kelly, I knew I was in good hands. Kelly used high-quality MAC products, and her expertise in selecting shades and textures complemented my complexion perfectly! I wholeheartedly recommend Kelly to any bride-to-be or anyone in need of professional makeup services

On my wedding day, Kelly worked her magic not only on me but also on my bridesmaids, flower girls and mother/ mother-in-law. She listened attentively to each person's preferences and made sure to create looks that suited their individual styles and personalities. Her warmth and skill made everyone feel so special. Kelly's professionalism and punctuality ensured that everything ran smoothly, allowing me to relax. She worked seamlessly with the hairstylist and photographer to ensure that every aspect was perfect. The compliments we received throughout the day were a testament to Kelly's artistry. The makeup stayed flawless until night, with no need for touch-ups. If you're looking for a makeup artist who will make you feel like the most beautiful version of yourself, Kelly is the one to choose. She has an incredible ability to bring out your inner radiance and create a look that will leave you feeling confident, empowered, and utterly breathtaking. Thank you, Kelly, for making my wedding day so memorable!

I wanted to say a huge thanks to Kelly, the amazing person who did my makeup for my wedding. I have known you for a couple of years and I knew you wouldn't disappoint. You know my face and what colour will look good on my lip. You made me look very beautiful on my wedding day. You are also very professional, with time and manner. You also did my bridesmaids and my flower girls and special guest, all done beautifully. I couldn't be happier for what you've done for me on my big day. You are my hero!! For anyone looking for a MUA, I definitely recommend my girl Kelly!

Kelly had me feeling and looking fresh and dewy on my wedding day. My makeup looked amazing IRL and photographed really well, with coverage that lasted the entire day. As someone who doesn’t normally wear much makeup - Kelly is an absolute master of the fresh bridal look that I was after. I was glowing! It felt light weight and comfortable. It was a privilege to work with Kelly - she is friendly, professional and is easy to communicate with.

I would absolutely recommend Kelly for bridal make up, to be honest any make up opportunity she would be wonderful at. We had a trial and Kelly really listened to what I wanted and I was so happy with the result! On the day she came on time and managed to stick to the time line for everyone which was fabulous as it was one less thing I needed to worry about on the big day. Everyone look beautiful from myself to my bridesmaids and even my mum. I would highly recommend Kelly xx
