No one compares to this hairstylists talent
Gemma is the go to hair stylist and I totally understand why. Her work is just magic, she creates hairstyles you only dream of having; I have never felt so beautiful. All my bridesmaids couldn’t stop talking about how lovely and kind she was and now they want to all get married so they can have her do their hair again.

What a delight!
I was mother of the bride and welcomed Gemma to our home for the pre wedding trial where I was bowled over by her warmth, adorable personality and skill. On the wedding day itself she added to the occasion with her calmness, kindness and professionalism - an amazing find!

If you want the most fabulous hair
Gemma was incredible. Not only is she gifted at styling hair, she is so lovely to have around! She did my hair (bridal) and my 4 bridesmaids, and all of us loved our hair. She really listens to what you want and finds a style that suits you.

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

Photos of loved ones that can’t be there, personal items added in the bouquet is always very special
