Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Polly
Hi and thanks for checking out my work. Please let me know if you have any specific questions, which I am more than happy to answer. Take a look at my pics and that will give you an idea of my style of work. However I don't offer a 'one size fits all' approach, makeup is such a personal thing, so it's better for us to have a chat about your expectations and requirements and to see if I am the right fit for your special day. I look forward to hearing from you.

Fabulous Makeup
Polly was fantastic. We booked Polly to do makeup on the occasion of my sons wedding. Polly was just fantastic, and did my makeup, mother of the bride makeup and my mother’s makeup. We were all really pleased with the results and the makeup lasted all day. We would highly recommend Polly.

Amazing makeup!! 😍
Being someone who never wears make-up, this was part of the wedding I was most anxious about. I searched through lots of MUAs on instagram and loved Polly's style. At the trial, Polly was amazing. She knew exactly what she was doing and soon put me at ease. Later that day, she messaged me to see check what i thought incase i wanted any changes on the day. The day arrived... Polly was so much fun it was like having an extra bridesmaid! She was so professional but down to Earth it was a real joy to have her with us. Lots of guests commented on how beautiful my makeup looked. I cannot thank Polly enough!! 😍😍

Exactly what I wanted.
Thank you Polly for absolutely nailing the brief on my wedding day. I'm not used to wearing a lot of make up so we did a trial, and learned what I love and what I don't. On the day itself, it was spot on. I felt flawless, the make up was natural but gave me great coverage. It even felt good, at the end of the day my make up was still in place, very rare for me as I have oily skin. Basically, I loved it, I wouldn't have changed a thing. Thank you :)

Polly was amazing leading up to the day and on the day itself! I don't regularly use make-up but she put me at complete ease and everyone talks about how my face was full of perfection, 'looking like a doll'. This is because of the wonderful talents of Polly! Thank-you Polly.

What is your most memorable wedding?

That's such a tough questions as weddings can be memorable for the wrong reasons! However I did one recently where the bride had undergone really serious treatment and surgery weeks before her wedding, that would affect the rest of her life and her marriage. She didn't shed one tear or even put herself first at any point even though it was her day and clearly was still in pain, her bravery, strength and beauty was immense. That bride inspired me and will continue to do so.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Flawless, enhancing, glowing, beautiful, girly!

What about your business are you most proud of?

My aim was to turn a lifelong dream into a hobby, yet I have turned it into a career and business. I have to pinch myself that this has really happened and I've done it all by myself.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Don't try to please anyone else. It's your day and everyone will give you their opinions, but as long as you and your partner are happy that is all that counts.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

It's quite emotional but a brother was giving his sister away as their father had passed away. He had made clips for the back of her shoes with a little pic of her dad on, so that he would still be walking her down the aisle. I thought this was such a lovely thing to do.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I work with the bride. Usually I'll get an email enquiry from the bride, and I'll send out a quote. Then we'll fix a time for a trial. This is an opportunity for not only to have a trial run on the wedding makeup, but also for us to get to know one another. All brides are different, some love makeup and know exactly what they want whereas some want my guidance and advice, and I adapt accordingly.

What do you love most about your job?

I LOVE makeup and I ADORE doing bridal makeup. Simple as that!

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

Start prepping your skin 6 months before the wedding. Cleanse tone moisturise, lots of water and regular exfoliation.

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

I reassure her constantly, and if something is bothering her I will either distract her or personally sort it. If that means, making tea, picking something up, sewing a dress, I will do it.

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

Don't get drunk!
