WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Maria helping me get ready on the morning of my wedding day made me feel like a movie star. She even gave me my own Marilyn moment - yes I was in a white towelling dressing gown at the time! - as she transformed me with just the right kind of eyelashes, while I was sipping prosecco in a hotel room. The particular thing about Maria that made her stand out against the other make up artists who I met was not only her ability to be confident and gentle at the same time (very important on an emotional wedding day) but also she has so much experience and I have since used tips and advice she gave me when doing my own make up for work and special occasions.
Maria gave me make up which suited me, looked natural, yet at the same time made me stand out as the bride and lasted all day and night for the all-important photos. She was brilliant and I recommend Maria to anyone who wants to look and feel wonderful on their big day.
