the most wonderful experience ever
Camilla is brilliant, she listened to what I wanted for myself and bridesmaids and absolutely delivered. The trial we had was a real pleasure and my actual wedding day was the most wonderful experience ever , Camilla totally made me feel and look exactly like the bride I wanted to be. Along with Katy , Camilla even managed to please all my bridesmaids- which can be a tough thing to do. I would not hesitate to book Camilla again for her magical touch. To top it off she is such a warm and friendly person who totally puts you at ease and makes you feel like the start of the show. I could not stop looking at myself 😊

She listened carefully during the consultation
I would highly recommend Camilla and her team. She came and did wedding hair and makeup for myself and our wedding party and it was a brilliant experience. She listened carefully during the consultation to what look I was going for and both hair and makeup looked incredible on the day and were hugely complemented during the wedding. She was a pleasure during the morning of the wedding and made a potentially nerve racking situation fun and relaxing. Thanks again Camilla, I can’t recommend you enough. Xx

Camilla is not your average wedding hairdresser
Camilla is not your average wedding hairdresser - she is exceptional. I was immediately comfortable in her company, and her experience and passion was obvious from the outset. On my wedding day she was calm, professional and friendly. She goes above and beyond what you expect - for example fixing mistakes made by other hairdressers on the day (mother of the bride). My hair looked perfect, and stayed in place all day and night. I would recommend her without hesitation!

lasted the whole day
Camilla did my makeup for my wedding and it was perfect. I asked for a very natural look that nevertheless lasted the whole day and worked for photographs and I really felt my best. Thank you! X

Camilla and her assistant Katie were amazing
Camilla and her assistant Katie were amazing on my wedding day. They did the hair and makeup for myself, all my bridesmaids (old and young), mother and sister in law. I could not have been happier and they were professional, talented and lovely to have around the morning of the wedding. I was so happy with my hair and makeup, Camilla understood the look I wanted and effortlessly made it happen and it lasted all day and night! The hair updos were also beautiful and each were created to suit the girls' hair type and face shape. I had lots of comments about how stunning my bridesmaids' hair was. I would not hesitate to recommend Camilla and her team to brides in the future- you will be in very safe hands.

They were incredibly calm and friendly
Having absolutely no experience with hair or make up artists I was a bit worried about choosing someone for my wedding. I went with Camilla simply because our photographer recommended her. I'm so glad I did! Camilla and her assistant, Katie, did my mum's, my bridesmaids' and my hair and make up for my wedding. They were incredibly calm and friendly and they got everyone finished in good time even adding an extra person in last minute. I the first bride ever to be early which made me very happy! I had the most amazing day and I felt incredible. I haven’t yet seen a photo I don't like! My mum and bridesmaids looked lovely too. No one was stressed or worried about hair and make up and it’s quite a difficult and personal thing to get right. I would absolutely recommend Camilla and her team. I also had a trial which I would recommend too. Camilla put my mind at rest about looking too 'done' or not like myself. We also went through lipstick colours so I could buy one to top up on the wedding day. Thanks so much Camilla and Katie! I might have to come up with an excuse to get made up again :)

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Personal, Professional, Relaxed, Creative, Bespoke

What about your business are you most proud of?

My amazing team who go above and beyond, have such fabulous personalities and make our lovely bride's special days that little bit more extra special!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Finding your perfect hair and make up for your wedding day can be quite daunting at first with so many different hair styles to chose from as well as make up styles. I always suggest your gather some images from google or present us with a pinterest board (who doesn't love a pinterest board eh?!) with hair and makeup styles that we can then discuss and work from at the trial. We'll keep going until we totally nail your PERFECT look for your very special day :)

What do you love most about your job?

Working with amazing brides-to-be, forming friendships and working together throughout the process to create an AMAZING look that is just perfect for them and that they truly feel a million dollars in!

What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?

Be yourself, feel comfortable, keep smiling and totally OWN YOUR DAY! (And don't sweat the small stuff!)

How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?

It can vary from bride to bride but I'll alleviate stress anyway I can, whether that's helping out with other wedding morning bits such as retying the bouquet or helping with DIY floral arrangements, keeping slightly trickier family members occupied or diffusing situations before they even arise. I always arrive full of beans and ensure the bride is smiling and laughing as much as possible throughout the whole wedding morning.. or afternoon!

What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?

I strongly recommend keeping hydrated by ensuring you sip on water throughout the day whilst also enjoying your bubbles! But most importantly relax and enjoy every minute of soaking up the atmosphere of all your loved ones there to celebrate with you! I'd also make sure that you remember to take some time out with your beau, just the two of you, so you don't get overwhelmed with all the guests and have some moments to treasure just the two of you :)
