I would highly recommend Antonia
Antonia helped me feel and look my best on the day. With skincare tips in the lead up, a fantastic trial and a big hug before I left to the Church I felt so comfortable in her presence. I couldn't thank Antonia enough for all her prep work prior to the wedding and her great expertise and skill on the day itself. I would highly recommend Antonia for hair styling and make up!

The whole experience was brilliant!
Antonia did hair and make up for my wedding for myself, my bridesmaids, my mum and mother in law. I would recommend her to anyone looking for natural wedding make up! From start to finish the whole experience was brilliant. Antonia really put me at ease during my trial, making sure I was happy and comfortable with everything. On the day Antonia brought in Cherie and Jo to help as there was so many of us and they were so good! Everyone’s hair and make up looked fantastic, and held all through the day and into the evening despite a lot of dancing!! Thank you so much for starting the day off perfectly!

Antonia even drove me to my wedding!
I’m so happy Antonia did hair and make-up for my mum, sister and me for my wedding day. We had a lovely time with her on the morning of the wedding, she worked so quickly and efficiently, and she had timed it perfectly so we never felt rushed. I wish Antonia could style my hair like that everyday, it was so stunning and I got so many compliments. I didn’t give her much of a brief but Antonia just knew exactly what I wanted and what would suit me. On top of all of that Antonia even drove me to my wedding! When she heard the taxi I’d booked wouldn’t fit all of us she kindly offered to take me and we had so much fun in the car on the way there!

Thank you so much Antonia!
Antonia is absolutely fantastic and I could not recommend her more. I booked her for hair and make up for my wedding earlier in the year. She handled hair and make up for me, did the make up for my bridesmaids and then brought along an assistant to help with hair for the bridesmaids (she was also brilliant!)!! I took along a couple of references to the prep session and she completely understood what I was after and executed straight away. Then took meticulous notes and pictures to make sure it could be recreated on the big day. On the day she organised all the timings perfectly and made getting ready so easy and stress free. Most importantly though - I couldn't have been happier with my hair and make up for my big day! She uses great brands as well so I didn't actually really need to top up during the day into the evening apart from my lipstick. My hair also held really well even after a lot of dancing! Thank you so much Antonia!

The wedding day couldn't have gone any smoother!
Antonia is such a wonderful makeup & Hair artist. Antonia was very flexible and supportive with my wedding date change after the covid implications. After an extra year of waiting for the Wedding, Antonia kept in contact throughout. Antonia made me feel so relaxed on my trial day, and the Wedding day couldn't of gone any smoother. Myself, mum and 3 bridesmaids were all pampered with their hair and makeup and Antonia had a lovely assistant, Hannah, to help her on this day. I/ We were so happy with the outcome of our hair and makeup, in love! Thank you so much Antonia! Can't recommend enough!

FAQ
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

My bride Kate Holbrook's wedding in a mediaeval village in the South of France. I then went back and booked a house there for my 40th birthday

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Effortless, Natural, Clean, Flawless, Real

What about your business are you most proud of?

The fact that I've been going for 25 years and still learning and moving with the times.

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

Read your supplier's FAQs. There will be loads of tips in there advising on how to have your most relaxed day.

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

When someone told me that when a Robin visits the morning of a wedding that it is a past relative coming to wish you well and that they are looking down on you.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I initially send out a fair bit of information at the first point of contact. I then follow that up about a week later to see if the bride has any further questions. If someone goes on to secure their wedding date then they get a top tips document that gives them all the info they need on how to prep their skin, hair and nails. A trial is then held anywhere between five and two months before the wedding where we run through the bride's desired look, perfecting each detail. A few weeks before the wedding the bride will receive a schedule so that she and her bridal party know how to prep their hair and where to be at what time.

What do you love most about your job?

That it is so creative

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

Skincare. Invest in your skincare and follow a good regime. Only then will your makeup be perfect.

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

I have a calm demeanor myself and sometimes I might give my brides some rescue remedy!!

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

Have a touch up kit. Powder, lipstick, gloss, whatever you might need.
