    I just wanted to email and say a big thank you for doing my hair and make up for my wedding day so beautifully. I had so many compliments on the day and you really tied in the hair and make- up with my dress, it looked amazing when it all came together.

    The day was a little stressful with other issues going on but you were an absolute professional, put me at ease and allowed me to keep nipping off in between to check everything was okay. Thank you so much!

    I booked Gemma to do my wedding hair and make -up and I was so pleased with what she did! She is extremely talented, professional and friendly - she made me look my best and I felt amazing. Exactly how you should feel on your wedding day. The make-up lasted all day and looked great in the photos. Gemma was also a very calming presence to have around on my wedding morning and I can't recommend her highly enough to future brides.

    I was looking for a make-up Artist and Hairdresser who could make me feel like every girl wants to feel on her Wedding Day - Like a Princess. After a couple of unsuccessful attempts with other artists I was starting to panic and wonder if I would ever find anyone I could rely on and be happy with the results.

    Luckily I found Gemma. From the first phone call to Gemma I felt at ease and confident I had found the woman for the job; Gemma was totally professional and also very friendly and made me feel relaxed. I had a trial with Gemma at her fabulous salon. I took along some photos, Ideas of what I was looking for and my veil etc Gemma also threw her ideas in to the mix which I welcomed. It was everything I had dreamt of and more, I was totally in love with what Gemma had created. And so was my Husband, his face said it all as I walked down the aisle towards him, a moment I will never forget.

    On the Day itself Gemma was amazing, calm and professional. I just wish she had been at our celebrations with us as a thank you.I would recommend Gemma to any Bride to Be wanting to look amazing and beautiful on her Wedding Day.
