'Tamara made me feel like an absolute princess !
Two words: Book Now!'
Tamara made me feel like an absolute princess on my wedding day - as someone who is very shy I have never felt so confident. At my trial Tamara took time to listen and go through ideas and looks with me. We tried out a few different makeup looks and which made me feel reassured about how I would look on the big day. On the morning of my wedding, Tamara arrived on time, and was just as bubbly and excited as me which helped me relax! She also did hair and makeup on my mother and sister, my mother said she felt “a million dollars”. My hair updo was the star of the show, I never thought my hair could look so glamorous. It stayed in place all day and didn’t need any adjusting. My makeup also lasted all day and only needed minimal lipstick touch ups! Tamara took all the necessary COVID precautions and everything was kept clean and tidy. I can’t recommend her work enough, she is very talented and takes pride in her work. If you are looking for bridal hair and makeup artist you have now found the one!
Thank you for everything.
YOU ARE IN SAFE HANDS !
