“Tara and the team were such a key part of our wedding day preparation, and it was a pleasure getting ready for the ceremony with them! I’m not a big user of make-up and only had a rough idea of the hairstyle I wanted, but Tara was able to give me both hair and make-up that was absolutely perfect. Everyone’s make-up was beautiful, and we all felt like celebrities for the day. Thank you so much, Tara and team, for your professionalism, friendliness, laughter, and relaxed but efficient approach to what you do — you’re all amazing! Highly recommended to anyone looking for a hair and make-up supplier.” — Tracey S.

Tara and the team were such a key part of our wedding day preparation, and it was a pleasure getting ready for the ceremony with them! I’m not a big user of make-up, and only had a rough idea of the hairstyle I wanted, but Tara was able to give me both hair and make-up that was absolutely perfect for what I’d tried to explain. My 5 bridesmaids all had different length hair and roughly chose on the day what styles to have – which the team played with and made each girl look fabulous! Everyone’s make-up was perfect, and we all felt like celebrities for the day. Thank you so much Tara and team for your professionalism, friendliness, laughter and relaxed but efficient approach to what you do – you’re all amazing! Highly recommended to anyone who is looking for a hair and make-up supplier.

I could not be happier to have Tara on my wedding day! My mother-in-law wasn't used to having her make-up done professionally so was a little bit tense and uneasy during the process. On top of that, my little nieces suddenly needed help putting the flowers on their hair. Tara handled everything like a pro and was so sweet and patient the whole time. She certainly made the situation easier for me. Our make-up held up well without needing any touch-ups (apart from the lipstick), and my hair stayed beautifully wavy and in place throughout the evening even after hours of dancing. Tara was personal yet professional, and she tried to understand what each of us wanted and successfully achieved it. I am so grateful to her for making everyone feel so special and beautiful on our wedding day.

Airlie & Co were sooo wonderful to work with. The booking manager Amanda makes everything so easy and seamless and she really takes care of you. My make up artist Holly was also AMAZING. She created the looks we wanted and was so easy going and relaxed. I've never felt more beautiful and couldn't thank Holly enough for her artistry!

Airlie&Co were a dream to work with. They were very thorough to make sure everything was how I wanted it. I did do the hair and make up trial as I wanted to see how I like dthe make up as I don't wear make up on a day to day basis and right from the get go everyone I met is very calm and collected which helped me feel relaxed. They were on time on the day of the wedding and we were all having a good chat and laugh while getting ready, a lovely stress free morning. It did rain a little bit for our ceremony and photos but my hair and make up did not budge! Exceptional quality and a fantastic team
