Don't look for anyone else - it has to be Gabi!
Gabi did hair and make-up for my wedding last Saturday (June 2019). I was quite nervous (despite having had a trial run a few weeks earlier) as I was undergoing medical treatment which meant my hair was thinning and was also grey! However, Gabi made me feel very at ease, made my hair look full of body (she knows a lot of tricks!) and gave me a beautiful make-over which lasted all day even in 27 degree heat! She and her colleague Becky also did hair and make up for my Mum and my two bridesmaids, all of whom were delighted with the results. My Maid of Honour has very thick and heavy hair and only discovered at the end of the day that Gabi had put in 47 hair pins - she was not going to let that hair fall down! As well as being very skilful, Gabi is a really lovely person and I very much enjoyed spending time with her. I highly recommend her.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Gabi, You are the most gentle hair and makeup artist I have ever come across. I received soooo many compliments for my look thanks to you. My hair and make up stayed just as you had left it the whole day and into the early hours of this morning. Thank you for sending me the lovely photos you took. I will definitely be using you again for future events. May I once again take this opportunity to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for making me look and feel gorgeous.

Wonderful throughout!
Gabi was wonderful throughout the whole process, communication was very easy, her styles and ideas were just what I wanted and she took feedback from my trial to ensure everything was perfect for the wedding day. Gabi was very calm and patient the morning of the wedding and made sure i was relaxed and felt at ease. I would recommend Gabi to any bride, she is very very talented and i really enjoyed her being part of my day.

Gabi’s work made me feel beautiful
I met Gabi when she did my sister’s wedding hair and make up, and when the time came for my wedding, I knew there was no one else I wanted to do mine. If I may say so myself, my hair and make up were astonishing. Gabi’s work made me feel confident and beautiful, without feeling overdone or false. Having my hair and make up done professionally was the icing on the cake, and really showed in the photographs of our day. Thank you Gabi for turning me into a princess on my very special day xx

Calm and professional
Gabi did my hair and make up for my wedding and did a wonderful job! She was responsive before and after the trial in the lead up to the big day. On the day she was on time, calm and positive, making us all feel at ease. Thank you Gabi!

These women work miracles!
Gabi did my face and hair for my wedding and my bridesmaids hair also. Her assistant Rebecca did their faces. We all looked amazing these women work miracles! Not only did Gabi make me look amazing she reassured me the whole time and made me feel amazing too. The whole process from first getting in touch to the trial and the day is brilliant the communication was easy and quick and again reassuring. I have never felt more beautiful. Thank you so much xxxx

You will have your wedding photos to look at and remember the day by for the rest of your life so making sure you are 100% happy with how you look and feel couldn't be more important on such special day!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

We have an initial email exchange to discuss the date and location of the wedding, the number of people needing my services and other important details. A deposit is paid to secure the date in my diary. We’ll then book in a trial, and I encourage my brides to send over images and ideas showing their vision for the big day – including styles of hair and makeup that they like, but also their colour schemes and the style of their wedding gown and jewellery. We’ll meet on the agreed date for the trial run for an in-depth consultation to design and finalise the hairstyle and makeup look. I’ll style the bride’s hair and do her make-up exactly as it will be on the day to give her as clear an idea as possible how everything will look. If the trial is a success, then final details are confirmed. On the wedding day I’ll arrive promptly with a big smile, offering a calming, happy presence to help get everyone ready in good time. We’ll recreate the lovely hairstyle and make-up from the trial and I’ll be on hand to help with securing the veil and generally helping out so the bride feels totally supported and happy.

What do you love most about your job?

Making people feel good about themselves.

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

Treat yourself to a lovely facial. Watch your diet and drink plenty of water in the last couple of weeks leading up to your wedding.

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

I smile and keep calm myself. I'm punctual and professional which contributes to my brides feeling relaxed and enjoying the experience.

Just be happy and smile :)
