'I have worked with Vickie over the course of my career on celebrity and magazine shoots, she has an uncanny way of making skin dewy, eyes sultry and lips plump and perfect. When it came to my own wedding there was no one else I would trust than Vickie. I felt amazing on my wedding day, which is in no small part down to the confidence Vicki's make-up gave me.' - Jessica Wallace - UK Store Manager at Pronovias

'I am so pleased that Vickie was recommended to me to do my make up on my wedding day. Not only is she accommodating and caring in the lead up to the big day, but her calm presence the morning of the wedding is just what you need. On top of that she is an amazing make up artist and transformed my mum, my sister and myself to look just how we could have wished to! I will always be recommending Vickie and definitely use her again in the future.' Emma P - Bride
'I used Vickie’s services on recommendation for my brothers wedding and was so impressed. Vickie came to my home for the make-up trial and I immediately liked her lively personality and competence – she really knows her stuff. Vickie took the time to discuss the ‘look’ I wanted and I was delighted with the results. On the day Vickie was bang on time, calm and relaxed. The best part? My make-up lasted ALL day from midday to midnight. I thoroughly recommend and hope to use her again in the future.' Emma C - Bride
'Right from our first meeting at my house back in January I knew that I wanted Vickie to do my hair and make up for my wedding. She immediately made me feel at ease and understood the look I was trying to create with my image and the look of the whole day. She had some great ideas and suggestions for helping me achieve the hairstyle and make up look that I had planned and on my trial I was truly amazed at how she could make me actually like my appearance (a massive thing for someone with low confidence)!!!.
On the wedding day itself, Vickie was a complete vision of calm, she was on time, brought so many items to help me and my bridesmaids get ready and she managed to complete 3 bridesmaids hair and my own hair and make up within a very tight timeframe whilst also managing the tears and anxieties from the large wedding party milling around. Many people who met Vickie on that morning commented on how professional and calm she was and that she was exactly what I needed given how nervous a bride I was! I left our getting ready cottage feeling like a princess and there is no way I would have felt this good if I had done my own hair and make up.
Many of our friends and family commented on my hair and make up throughout the day saying how fresh and natural I looked and this was so pleasing as I didn't want to look 'over-done'. My hair stayed in its style until the very end and the products Vickie used on my skin prevented any shine and blemishes showing through for our photos; exactly what I wanted but could never have achieved by myself.
I would not hesitate to recommend Vickie to any bride. She is calm, very experienced, kind and clearly loves her job - she would be a true asset to any bride looking for someone to help them look their very best on their big day' Katie - Bride
'Just to say a HUGE HUGE thank you for doing such a WONDERFUL job on my hair and make up and my sister's make up! And also for being so calm, relaxed and generally helping me with everything until I left for the ceremony. Everyone said I looked beautiful which was definitely down to you making me look so good!!!!! And lots of people asked about my hair and make up specifically so I gave them your details of course!' Sheryl - Bride
'A big thank you for your help on my wedding day! Not only did you make me and my bridesmaids look amazing, you also brought a calm atmosphere whilst getting ready which was greatly appreciated on what could have been a stressful day. Our make up looked just as good at the end of the night as it did at the beginning and looks even better in our photos. I would happily recommend you to any friends and have used you since for any special occasions. Thank you again you're a star.' Laura - Bride
