“I would highly recommend Samantha to all my friends and any future brides! During my makeup trial Samantha listened to what colours I like and gave great advice as to what would suit my skin tone and eye colour. On the day of the wedding Samantha arrived early, at my home address and that took away all my stress and wedding morning nerves!
The makeup lasted all day and looked great in the professional photos from my photographer. I can’t thank Samantha enough for looking after me, my mum and 2 bridesmaids on my special day.
Hope to work with you again” Jenny (Bride)
“Thank you so much for doing my makeup and my bridesmaids’ makeup on my wedding day. I knew I wanted you to do my makeup when you did our makeup for my friend’s wedding a while ago. I am so pleased that I had you do my makeup as you are so talented at what you do. You were great from start to finish so once again thank you for being a part of our special day! Love Laura xx” Laura (Bride)
“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for doing my makeup so perfectly on our big day as well as my mums and all the bridesmaids! We were all so pleased with it and it stayed perfect all day. You were so helpful both before and during the morning of the wedding – a true professional! Thank you so much. All the best, Becky xx” Becky (Bride)
“I wanted to thank you for the wonderful make-up that you did for me and my family for my wedding in June. I was really pleased with our make-up which was exactly what I wanted for my special day. I would be happy to recommend you to any of my friends and family.” Stephanie (Bride)
"You did a great job and all the ladies photographed well. All the best" Steve SJJ Images (Photographer)
"Thank you, Sam, for being so amazing, our make-up was perfect and stayed in place all day, you are so good at what you do. The morning went so smoothly and because everyone was so organised it really calmed me down! Thank you for being a part of our amazing day xxx” Becky (Bride)
"Samantha is very professional and very good adviser when it comes to your make up, she will suggest a natural look depending on your skin tone. I was so happy that I found her as I was really stressed out not finding a make-up artist and it was only a few weeks before the big day.
Samantha applied my make-up and my bridesmaids in a very beautiful, natural but glamorous way. I looked amazing as well as my entourage. She was a very kind; fine lady and she knows exactly what’s best for you. I was so blessed to meet her. To anybody who is getting married – do not hesitate to contact Samantha, you won’t regret hiring her services for your special day. Good luck Samantha. More power to you. With love, Evelyn" Evelyn (Bride).
"Samantha did an incredible job for me, my mum and my mother-in-law on my wedding day. I wanted a natural look and I was so pleased with what she did. She was so nice, friendly and accommodating too. I couldn't have asked for anything more - she was perfect!" Sarah (Bride).
“Thank you so much to Samantha for doing such an amazing job with the make-up for the whole of the wedding party (Bride, Mother of the Bride and five bridesmaids!) on my wedding day. Samantha was recommended to me by a friend (and hairdresser) and I am so happy with the make-up that she applied for everyone.
My Mum, Sister and I had a trial prior to the wedding day as we were all a little nervous and wanting to avoid an overly made up 'clown' look! My Sister also has allergies and very sensitive skin and a trial was essential for her. When I arrived at the trial I explained to Samantha that, as I don't wear lots of make-up day to day, I really just wanted to look flawless on the wedding day. Samantha was fantastic and spent a long time tailoring the make-up to my skin tone. She did the same with my Mum and Sister giving us all an individual look. My Sister was particularly happy with the products that Samantha used as she had no skin reaction to the make-up applied and was confident that she would have no reaction on the big day as well.
On the wedding day, Samantha was on-time, completely organised and relaxed and got to work straight away. As a nervous bride, this was all extremely calming and reassuring. She worked tirelessly to make us all look gorgeous and I was so pleased with the end result - as were all the bridesmaids! I would definitely recommend Samantha to other brides without hesitation. Thank you again!” Debbie (Bride).
“Thank you so much for being part of my day and making it special. I was absolutely delighted with my make-up. I don’t normally wear make-up but felt I really should on my special day but still wanted to “look like me”. I loved the natural look you created which really made my eyes sparkle. The feel of the make-up too was very natural – I wasn’t aware of anything on my face – and it kept for the whole day. You put me at ease from the moment we met. Thank you. I will definitely be recommending you to anyone wanting to feel special on their Wedding Day.” Emma (Bride).
“Thank you so much for doing my make up - I felt like a million pounds. The make up was perfect and I felt really beautiful and confident for my whole wedding day. All the guests commented on how utterly beautiful I looked and how lovely the makeup was. The make up stayed on throughout the whole day until the early hours.
Samantha listened to what I wanted and perfected the look with patience . It was great to be pampered by her and she was a calming influence on the wedding morning. I would highly recommend her for your wedding day. Thanks again.” Katy (Bride)
"Thank you for keeping me calm on my wedding day and making me and my mum feel special. Love and hugs" Angie (Bride)
“Samantha did an excellent job, I felt really pleased wearing my make-up, it looked beautiful all day. Many thanks” Louise (Bride)
“I am someone who hardly wears make up and was very nervous about how I would look on my special day. Samantha made me feel completely at ease and talked me through every step of the process. The result was a very natural look which made me look and feel beautiful. Samantha is incredibly talented and I would recommend her to everyone.” Joanna (Bride)
“Thank you for making me look beautiful on my wedding day! Your service was flawless and you helped keep the day as stress-free as possible. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone. Thanks again for the fab make-up!!!” Sophie (Bride)
“Samantha applied my make up for my wedding day. I rarely wear make up and so it was really important to me to find a make up artist who could create a natural but special look that I was comfortable with. Samantha did just that and the make up last beautifully all day and evening. Samantha was incredibly friendly and professional, and really put me at ease. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend SJ Make Up to anyone looking for a make up artist. Thank you!" Catherine (Bride)
“Thank you SO much for doing such a great job of my make-up for my wedding! I was so happy with the final result and it was just the look I was hoping for! My mum and bridesmaids were all really happy with their make-up too – I thought they all looked stunning! Thank you for being so calm on the morning itself – I have such happy memories." Sophie (Bride)
"I'm not a girl who wears much or knows anything about make-up so having my make-up done by a professional was a strange concept to me - however, Samantha is a very professional and friendly lady who thankfully knows exactly what she is doing! I booked Samantha for my wedding make-up, she also did my mum and one of my bridesmaids. We were all over the moon with our make-up, it lasted beautifully throughout the day and into the evening (even mother of the bride tear proof!). I would heartily recommend Samantha of SJ Make-up and would book her again myself without hesitation! Rachael (Bride).
"I don't usually wear make-up but Samantha applied my make-up for my wedding and I was extremely pleased. My eyes on the photographs look stunning and I would recommend Samantha to apply everybody's wedding make-up or for any occasion. I couldn't have been happier. Kelly (Bride)
"I would just like to say a massive thank you for being part of the bridal party on the morning of the big day, you made everyone feel so relaxed whilst having their make-up done and the final results on both myself and the girls were amazing, everyone was so pleased with their make-up they all said how much of an amazing job you did.
I will definitely recommend you to anyone who requires a Make-up Artist. Again, thank you so much - you did a great job."
"Just wanted to say thank you so much for doing such an amazing job at our wedding! You had five of us to make up in a reasonably short period of time, but you took it all in your stride and were so calm on the day (which was much appreciated, especially when we started to run late). I really wanted a natural, minimal look and you made sure that happened. The finish was flawless and your kind, friendly nature made it so easy to get on with you. You made us all feel so at ease and easily adapted your natural style to suit everyone's different skin tones.
The two bridesmaids who rarely wear make-up were both so comfortable with what you had done. We all went to the church feeling beautiful. The make-up lasted all day through the heat and dancing. Should I need make-up doing in the future I will certainly be in touch and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends in the future. Thank you again!" Sarah (Bride)
"I just want to confirm again just how completely delighted we both were with your invaluable contribution to Hannah's wedding day! In my opinion her bridal makeup was just perfect. Whilst true to Hannah's natural complexion and features, it was so beautifully enhancing and perfectly appropriate for the specialness of her day.
As mother-of-the bride, and someone whose makeup is normally very minimal, your whole approach suited me perfectly. The finished result added just the amount of definition I wanted for the photographs, whilst still allowing me to feel and present as the natural me, albeit a little more sophisticated than usual!
Just as importantly, the whole session was unbelievably relaxing and an ideal treat on the wedding morning. You work with such an understated but reassuring confidence - a real oasis of calm and pampering amidst a morning of hectic preparation. Thank you so much for travelling to our own home and for making me feel so good.
I would definitely recommend you to others looking for a professional make-up service and please feel free to use any of my comments by way of website testimonial if appropriate. You have inspired me and I would love to use you again.
Lesley (Mother of the Bride)
"Just wanted to say thank you very much for applying my make up for my wedding day. You were a great calming influence on the morning and I was so pleased with the final result." Hannah (Bride)
"I just wanted to write to thank you for doing such a superb job at our wedding with the make up for me, my mum and bridesmaids. I couldn't have been happier with the end result – and you proved to be such a calming presence on the day which is just what I needed! You have been an absolute pleasure to work with and I would whole heartedly recommend your services to other brides. With many thanks and very best wishes". Jo (Bride)
"Just a quick note to say thanks for all your help yesterday - I'm really sorry we rushed off and I didn't thank you properly in person. The make up was perfect and we all really appreciated the relaxed atmosphere you helped create! I will send you through some photos when I have them. Best wishes" Katherine (Bride)
"I'd met several make-up artists in preparation for my big day before I spoke to Samantha, and none had quite understood 'the look' I was aiming for. I was almost resigned to doing my make-up myself, but didn't particularly want the stress on the morning. However, when I spoke to Samantha, she took the time to understand the look I was trying to achieve and was happy to spend time in creating this to perfection. After the trial, I felt completely confident that I would be able to walk down the aisle feeling my most beautiful - and I did. Throughout the day, my make-up stayed in place despite the heat and hours of dancing, and come 2am, it still looked fabulous. Several layers of eyeliner and mascara, and not one smudge - practically a miracle.
Samantha was always cheerful, helpful, and really listened to what I wanted - and I'm really pleased that she was able to do my make-up for my wedding day. I would feel completely happy in recommending her to anybody who also wanted to feel their most confident and beautiful on their own big day." Lanna (Bride)
"Samantha is a fantastic make-up artist, as well as being friendly and easy to get on with. My wedding make-up was beautiful - whilst looking natural it also showed up really well on the photographs. In my 9 year old bridesmaid's words, 'you look REALLY good'!" Sharon (Bride)
"Samantha was brilliant on my wedding day. Completely calm and perfectly professional, she applied very natural looking make-up for myself, my three bridesmaids and my Mum, who are all very different skin tones, showing just how versatile and competent she is. The natural look was very important to me as my husband-to-be has always commented in the past if a bride looked like she was wearing far more make-up than normal. He loved the look Samantha created - she is definitely highly recommended!
"Due to living abroad, I only managed to fit in a trial the afternoon before the wedding, but that provided no difficulty for Samantha at all. After showing her my outfit, she asked me a few questions and went on to created a very beautiful, natural style.
The next morning she outdid herself by making me look even more beautiful. All throughout the day people kept commenting on how stunning I looked.
Samantha is highly skilled and very professional next to being very open and accessible as a person. She puts you at ease as she works her magic. I definitely recommend her. Thanks again, Samantha!" Cheta (Bride)
"The make-up was lovely, almost identical to the trial. Sam was incredibly professional whilst also being very friendly and dealt with my dog who wanted to join in very well too. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting make-up done for any occasion.
"Thank you so much for agreeing to apply my make-up for my big day, you did an outstanding job. I had several comments from my guests about what a fantastic job you did and how natural I looked. Thank you also for keeping me so calm on the day!! I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to friends in the future. Thanks so much again. I hope to get the opportunity to use you again one day." Gemma (Bride)
"The make-up you applied was really just perfect - it looked and felt so natural, and went a long way to calming my nerves on the day by giving me a great deal more confidence. Thank you so much again!" Susannah (Bride)
"Thank you so much for the wonderful make-up you did for Mum and I on my wedding day. I knew I had nothing to worry about as you were so professional, calm, reliable and friendly. I could not have had anybody better doing such an important job on my big day. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others. Thank you so much." Alison (Bride)
"Thanks for the lovely make-up, your time and patience Samantha. We had a lovely time too!" Michelle (Bride)
"Thank you so much for making such a wonderful job of the make-up for my wedding. Both myself and my Mother- in-Law loved our make-up and the natural look you gave us was great for the photographs. Thanks again" Sarah (Bride)
"Samantha was recommended to me by a friend, and after having her do my bridal make-up I would certainly recommend her too. Samantha arrived right on time and helped keep everyone calm and relaxed (which was difficult to do as the hairdresser was over an hour late!). She did a great job with everyone's make-up. My mum never normally wears any, but felt comfortable and confident all day. My youngest bridesmaid was too young for full make-up, so Samantha applied fresh, simple make-up which really suited her age. My make-up was gorgeous. It looked natural and didn't feel heavy and it lasted through into the night. I highly recommend SJ Make-up." Stephanie (Bride)
"Just to say a big thank you for the professional, talented and friendly way you provided the make up for my wedding day. It was a lovely experience for myself, my mother and bridesmaids, and was very relaxing before we had to rush around and get into our dresses. Our make up lasted all day and looked wonderful on all the photos. We had an amazing day which you contributed to greatly. Thank you again, and I shall be sure to recommend you to any future brides." Kelly (Bride)
"Samantha did a fantastic job on me and my three bridesmaids. The make-up looked beautiful and lasted all day. She is very professional and very friendly. I would certainly recommend her." Vicki (Bride)
"I am so glad I chose Samantha to do my wedding make-up! She was so calm and efficient on the day and it was a real pleasure to have her around. I felt far more relaxed than I was expecting to (probably because I realised I was in such good hands!) and I thoroughly enjoyed the pampering. Her attention to detail was fantastic and I was really delighted at how the make-up enhanced my features whilst still managing to look soft and natural. Couldn't have been happier... thank you, Samantha!" Sue (Bride)
"I think lots of brides will agree that choosing their hair and make-up for the day is one of the most fun parts of their big day but for me, organising my special day from afar it could have proved quite a challenge. However, I was lucky enough to find Samantha's details from an internet search at an early stage and once I had been in contact with her I knew that I had nothing to worry about!
Even though the distance factor had meant that we left my trial right up until the last minute, I knew as soon as I met Samantha that I was confident that she would do a fantastic job, and that she did. My trial was very relaxing and even though I really wanted to peak at what she was doing I was really pleased I didn't, seeing the result for the first time as a whole was a really memorable experience, its truly amazing what the professionals can do and I would definitely describe Samantha as a true professional.
On the day itself Sam arrived at my room bang on time and myself and my friends had a lovely time all together, getting me all prepared for the big event. Samantha managed to keep her concentration all the way through as I giggled, which I am sure must have been off-putting! Once it was time for the big reveal I was really amazed with the result as it was even more picture perfect than the trial, and the best thing of all is that it was a really wearable look that although was set enough to last the day, did not feel heavy and at all caked on. The make up Samantha used was light and fresh and I felt very relaxed and pampered by the time I had my dress and accessories all in place.
I cant recommend Samantha's service highly enough, the make-up was stunning, everyone commented on it and all my friends were really impressed with the results. Samantha has a lovely nature and she was a pleasure to spend time with on the wedding morning, putting me completely at ease. She has a quiet but confident manner and worked speedily but with the utmost care and precision. I highly recommend Samantha's work and urge anyone that's looking for a make up artist, for any event, not just a wedding to contact her without delay as I am sure that offering a talent and expertise like hers, Samantha will be a very busy lady for a long time to come!!!!" Georgina (Bride)
"Thank you very very much for a doing a superb job on my make-up. I don't normally wear any and wanted to look glowing on my special day, which you achieved for me. It was beautiful and natural and everything that I wanted, and it lasted all day. Thank you for doing my mums too, she was so pleased. We would highly recommend you." Louise (Bride)
"You were an absolutely fantastic person to have as our make-up artist both in the lead up and on the day of the wedding itself. You created a really natural and classic look which lasted long into the night and I would gladly recommend you to anyone wanting professional make-up for a special occasion. To top it off you were a very calming influence on me on the morning of the wedding - thank you for everything you did." Ciara (Bride)
"I wanted to write to say a huge thank you for the great job you did with make-up for me, my mum and my bridesmaid on my wedding day - it was all exactly how I wanted and we were all really pleased. I don't normally wear a huge amount of make-up and for this reason was keen to have someone do it for me. You seemed to know exactly what I wanted and were able to create a natural look that stayed all day long - I'm still using the lipstick you recommended! You were calm on the day and right from the trial I knew that you understood exactly what look I was trying to create. I would not hesitate to recommend you and I'll probably be in touch again when I've got another special event to go to. Best wishes and huge thanks again." Lynsey (Bride)
"Thank you very much for doing my make-up on my special day. I absolutely loved the look you created and everybody commented on how natural it looked. Best of luck for the future." Nicola (Bride)
"Just a quick note to say thank you for doing the make-up for me and my girls yesterday. You were a lovely person to have around and everyone was very pleased with your work. Thank you for your part in making such a great day." Kate (Bride)
"Thank you very much for the wonderful work that you did for my wedding. The make-up gave me a beautiful glow without being seen to look like I've got too much make-up on and looked completely natural. I'm also really glad that we looked at some pictures of the kind of make-up that I wanted as you applied correctly to my specifications yet knowing when it was appropriate for my skin complexions. All-in-all, many thanks again for a wonderful job." Diana (Bride)
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help last Saturday - everyone said how lovely all of the make-up looked - and it stayed on perfectly all day. Thanks again for all your help" Kate (Bride)
"Thank you so much for doing such a fantastic job on my wedding make-up and for my bridesmaids and mum. You put us at ease and created a beautiful, natural look for us all. The make-up lasted through all the laughter and tears - I had lots of comments at our evening do about how I still looked fresh and flawless, so thank you! I would highly recommend Samantha, she is friendly, professional and calm." Sarah (Bride)
"Thank you for doing such a brilliant job with my make-up, it really did last all day! Everyone else was really pleased with theirs too!
"Thank you so much for your wonderful make-up artistry on my Wedding Day. I felt fantastic and have been told I looked good too!"
"Thank you very much for doing my wedding make-up. I met Samantha at a local wedding fayre and booked her to do my wedding make-up after being impressed with her professionalism and aim to create a light, natural lasting look which would last from day through to night. From the first consultation to the wedding day application, Samantha stayed true to her publicity. With one look at my skin she started applying make-up; the application was so light with simple brush strokes and pencil lines you could hardly feel you had been touched, it was as if a fairy had painted you while you were sleeping. Within the hour I had been transformed into someone I had to look twice at. The look was effective but very natural and I was assured that this was enough to show up on the photographs.
Samantha was easy to communicate with throughout and along with her professionalism is a very friendly and calming person, which resulted in my wedding make-up being a worry taken off my mind. I would definitely recommend Samantha to anyone getting married or even for that special Summer ball or Christmas party, but then again why use an excuse like those to spoil yourself and feel fantastic for a night out. So thank you Samantha for adding to the many happy memories of our wedding day, our photos are fantastic and my make-up flawless." Lorraine (Bride)
"Thank you for helping to make our day as perfect as it was. If anyone needs their make-up doing, I will happily recommend your services. Thank you once again" Emma (Bride)
"Many, many thanks to Samantha who in the comfort of my own home applied some stunning make-up for myself, my three adult bridesmaids, mother and mother-in-law on my wedding day. Samantha was so calm and cool as a cucumber throughout, despite the house was filled with excitable women running in circles getting ready for the big day. My make-up was fantastic - it felt like I hardly had any on and it lasted all day long. I would recommend Samantha to anyone who wants to have perfect make-up for their wedding day!" Anna O (Bride)
"I have never been a girl who wears a lot of make-up and as a result I am not confident in my application of it. I wanted to feel beautiful and treat myself on my wedding day. I wanted to look the best I could without feeling uncomfortable wearing heavy make-up which didn't suit my style. Samantha put me at ease on the make-up trial day and got the make-up spot on first time. She also did the make-up for my mum, my sister and my four adult bridesmaids.
The morning of the wedding as you can imagine is hectic with hairdressers and bridesmaids in the house. Samantha worked around everyone and applied all the make-up flawlessly including doing all the important touch-ups before we left for the church! I felt beautiful and comfortable as the make-up was naturally subtle and stunning. Maybe when my sister gets hitched we can treat ourselves and have our make-up done again!" Amie G (Bride)
"Samantha is amazing! She did the make-up for myself and my two adult bridesmaids and we were all over the moon with the results. Samantha has a very calming affect on people and on the wedding day, I felt totally relaxed when having the make-up applied. Thank you so much for helping to make my day perfect!" Francine M (Bride)
"My make-up was fabulous on the day, thank you so much. It could not have been better, very natural but enough to look striking. The bridesmaids and my mother were also very pleased, everyone looked beautiful." Kate W (Bride)
"I met Samantha at a wedding fayre and booked her to do my wedding make-up because I was so impressed by her promise of a fresh, natural look. Being an "older" bride, I was particularly keen she should make the most of my good features but hide the blemishes and I did not want to look like a painted lady! She listened carefully at the make-up trial when I described what I wanted and when I looked in the mirror at the end, I was thrilled to bits with what she had achieved. It was still definitely "me" but with all the right bits highlighted and enhanced. This gave me the confidence as I approached my wedding day that make-up was one item I would NOT have to worry about!
Sam was very easy to communicate with throughout, punctual, calm, professional and relaxed. On the day, I received many compliments for the way I looked and our photos confirm that her promise of a natural look was completely fulfilled. The make-up lasted all day without even a touch up and still looked just as good at midnight as it had done when Sam applied it first thing in the morning. So, thank you Sam, for helping to make our wedding day such a happy memory - and don't throw my notes away as I won't hesitate to come back to you if ever I have another special occasion!" Joy W (Bride)
"Thank you so much for doing my make-up for my wedding. It looked so nice and natural, making me feel confident and relaxed to enjoy our wonderful day." Shantel P (Bride)
"I wanted to find someone who could make me look as natural as possible as I don't usually wear a lot of make-up and Samantha was perfect - she highlighted my best features and the make-up lasted all day. All day long I was complimented on my make-up and I would definitely recommend Samantha to anyone looking for a fantastic make-up artist." Natalie H (Bride)
"Samantha did an excellent job of applying make-up for my sister and myself. The look was natural but effective, just what you want for the big day. She recommended a beautiful shade of lipstick which I absolutely loved. Sam arrived promptly on my wedding day and kept her cool despite the challenges of coping with a string of interruptions from my 20 month old niece who was starting to get tired and fractious by the time my sister's turn came to be made up. I think for me the thing I appreciated most of all about Sam was her professional approach towards communication. Unlike some of my other suppliers Sam was always very prompt at replying to my emails and phone calls, which was very reassuring. If you are prone to stress, as I am, it makes an enormous difference to have someone like Sam on your 'wedding team'." Carys G (Bride)
"True to her publicity, Samantha created a natural look for myself, my mother and my two adult bridesmaids. In addition, she was meticulous in confirming arrangements beforehand, and on the day she worked calmly and unobtrusively, fitting in well with the hairdresser, who was also working with several members of the wedding party." Marianne B (Bride)
"I just wanted to let you know that you did a fantastic job doing my make up for my wedding day. I was a bit worried at first as I don't normally wear make up, but you made it look natural. Once again thanks, and I recommend you to anyone." Clare A (Bride)
"I wanted to let you know how much I loved my make-up and the bridesmaids and my mum were really pleased with theirs too. Everyone commented on how lovely our make-up looked. Thanks again for everything." Claire B (Bride)
"I was very, very pleased with my look on the day. Samantha applied my make-up as well as my bridesmaids and my mother and did a really wonderful job. Everyone commented on how lovely and natural we all looked and the make-up lasted all day - I didn't even need to re-touch my lipstick!" Sara C (Bride)
"Samantha was friendly, punctual and professional - exactly what I needed on my wedding day. The results after my make-up was applied were perfect and certainly added to my confidence and enjoyment of the day. As an added bonus, I even learnt from Samantha and have applied her advice to my every day make-up." Justine R (Bride)
"I was delighted by the service I received from Samantha when I got married recently. I was really impressed by Samantha's make-up skills during the trial and by her professional but friendly manner. I booked her straight away for make-up for myself, my mother and my three adult bridesmaids. On the wedding day itself Samantha came over to my house and did a marvellous job on our make up. We were all thrilled with the results. My bridesmaids have very different styles and strong views on the make-up they wear. Samantha worked with each of them to create a look that suited them individually whilst working well as a group. I was so happy with the service we received from Samantha - she made getting ready on my wedding day an absolute pleasure!"
Victoria G (Bride)
"Samantha was very friendly and professional. She did the make-up and nails of my Maid of Honour and myself and we both were really pleased with the results. The make up was really natural and it lasted all day. I would definitely recommend Samantha to anybody wishing to have their make-up done. Thank you so much for doing an excellent job." Nicola S (Bride)
"Samantha was recommended to me by a friend at work who got married last year. Once I had met Sam at my consultation, I understood why she had been recommended. She is extremely professional, but relaxed and fun with it. On my wedding day, she did the make-up for my mum, my two sisters and myself. She was extremely organised throughout the morning and the overall results were fantastic, and so natural. I would have no problem at all in recommending Sam to do wedding make-up. She is an absolute star and a great person to have around when you are as stressed as we were on the morning of the wedding."
Melanie W (Bride)
"Samantha did the make-up for my mother, mother-in-law and myself on my wedding day – and the results were amazing. As none of us usually wear make-up, we were all a little nervous at the prospect of being 'made-up', however after a few minutes with Samantha were all reassured by her professional manner and understanding about what we wanted. On the day itself I was feeling very stressed and rushed, but Samantha was very calming and organised and I found the whole time she spent with us very relaxing and good fun. The make-up looked stunning – just the right combination to give a natural look yet enough to look good on the photographs. I would recommend Samantha to anyone looking for a make-up artist: she combines professionalism with good fun and is able to relax even the most stressed bride." Sarah W (Bride)
"My wedding make-up was fantastic. It looked really natural, while highlighting my features. It lasted all day. Both me and my bridesmaids were really happy with the finished result. Thank you so much for the great job you did and role you played in the best day of my life." Teresa I (Bride)
"Not being a regular make-up user means if I had have done my own make-up for my wedding to Steve I would have looked more like Dame Edna Everage than me and would not have been any where near as confident for the walk down the aisle! Putting on mascara would have probably been the worst bit (as much as I told everyone I was calm I was not!). Everyone looks at the brides face once they have had a good look at the dress and it was that thought that got me searching for a make-up artist. Samantha was the obvious choice - lots of experience and excellent in her trade but still young enough to have a laugh with on the day of the wedding! Her services were employed to do mine and my mums make-up.
On the day, she chatted to me while she worked her magic on my face giving a very natural final look that is wonderful in our photographs as well as on the day itself. Quite honestly I cannot praise her contribution to our wedding enough. She took the worry out of that part of the day completely and the products she used remained fresh and perfect looking for the rest of what was a rather hot day. Thank you Samantha for your calm, friendly manner that day and for making me feel like a princess (and my mum a queen!) on our special day." Kim R (Bride)
"Samantha was very professional and friendly. She completed make-up for five people on my wedding day and every person was very pleased with the result. We all looked fantastic - with any blemishes hidden! I would recommend Samantha to anyone!"
Carolyn D (Bride)
"I met Samantha through attending a local wedding fayre. I contacted her and arranged to meet for a trial run a couple of months before my wedding. At the trial run, she did full make-up for me - I was slightly nervous at first as I never wear much make up but she did a fantastic job. On the wedding day itself, she came to my mum's house and did my grandmother's nails, my mum's nails and make-up and my own nails and make-up. She was very relaxed and made me feel relaxed. The make-up she did was wonderful and everybody commented on it. Samantha is a very friendly girl with a very professional and relaxed manner - I would certainly use her again and would recommend her to any bride getting married." Alison H (Bride)
"It was my third photo shoot, and as a new model when I was told I could have my make-up applied professionally, it really excited me and I jumped at the chance! Being an alternative model I wondered if Samantha could compete with my usual extravagant colourings, but I was pleasantly surprised! The quality of her work is fantastic, and it made the photo shoot run very smoothly with me feeling more attractive due to the make up, and being very relaxed in front of the camera." Emily H (Model)
"I visited Samantha before the wedding so that we could discuss colours and get to know each other. Samantha was extremely professional and we got on straight away. On the big day Samantha was calm and cool and helped me relax with her professional ability, we had a great time and I was very pleased with the way I looked. I would thoroughly recommend Samantha, she is bright, young, enthusiastic and very friendly!" Jo H (Bride)
