"This is the second time that I have been so lucky to have had Mel and her team work their magic on me and this time it was my wedding. Mel's relaxed nature and heart-warming smile will put any bride at ease on the morning of their wedding. Her attention to detail and experience is exactly why I wanted to have her do my hair and Make-up for my special day. If anyone is looking for an AMAZING hair and make-up artist with an incredible team, who not only are the best at what they do but also enjoy a good chit chat/giggle whilst doing it, then look no further. Thank you Mel and Zoe for helping to make my wedding day one I will never forget! Xx"


I cannot recommend Melissa enough, she did my hair & makeup on my wedding day as well as my two bridemaids and my mothers makeup, september last year. Melissa understood what I wanted to achieve and made it happen! I wanted very effortless and natural hair & makeup for the day which she executed amazingly.

Melissa is very professional and her passion & commitment to help you achieve your vision shines through.
Melissa was very patient with me and my bridal party she guided me through the process I couldn't have been more happier with my hair & make up on my big day! 
I would highly recommend.

Thank you Melissa x


"Melissa and her assistant were amazing. They really helped in creating such a calm and fun atmosphere on the morning of the wedding, chatting easily with my bridesmaids and even giving some eyebrow tips that they could continue to do for themselves!

She used the trial to help decide exactly what suited me and my skin and then made the adjustments I wanted ready for the day itself. My hair and make up stayed great all day, despite the heat and the dancing!

Melissa was so experienced that she predicted the calm feeling would disappear in the last hour and she was right- things definitely sped up at that point but she stayed focussed on making sure I looked exactly as I wanted to, even with a room full of flower girls running around! She even managed to get a lovely video of my dad seeing me for the first time and helped my mum with her headpiece.

Thanks Melissa!"
