"So I've actually tried to write this review three times now, but end up deleting it as I'm struggling to convey just how delighted I am with Alice.
From the very beginning stages of booking to the wedding day, Alice was professional, kind and a genuinely warm person. During the trial she asked how I'd usually wear my makeup and worked hard to enhance my features rather than thickly apply it which I was delighted with. She asked for my suggestions while also giving her own recommendations which was brilliant for a really indecision person like myself. My hair was beautiful and I ended up keeping it in all day because i loved it so much.
Alice accommodated a last minute addition request despite having absolutely no obligation to and went out of her way to find an assistant to help so all of our hair and makeup would be finished by my early ceremony time, rather than just insisting we all get up at the crack of dawn. I believe I could have thrown any curveball at Alice and she would have handled it with tact and grace.
On the wedding morning I was really nervous, kept welling up and became a bit anxious. Alice immediately began to ask me questions about the wedding, our engagement and general life stuff to keep me distracted and grounded. It worked! I was so busy talking with her that time flew and my nerves calmed down. We all got so many compliments on our hair and makeup and I'm so grateful.
Alice is the sweetest, loveliest person who is also incredibly skilled at her job and I highly recommend her for any upcoming weddings."

"Alice is a dream! She is kind, professional, accommodating, super calm and her hair and makeup is out of this world!! 💫 Alice’s hair and makeup was exactly how we discussed and I’d never felt more beautiful and my hair and makeup lasted all day and night. On the morning of the wedding she made me feel so relaxed like it was just friends hanging out, and took away all the nerves of the morning! I would 1000% recommend Alice to any future bride or bridesmaid! My MOH also looked incredible and my bridesmaid too! Thank you Alice for everything!!"
Bride, Gemma G
"Alice’s communication skills were fantastic throughout the entire process, she was responsive and straight to the point. I really appreciated this as it meant it was one thing off my very long tick list.
When meeting Alice for my trial, she made me feel at ease. Alice was super excited about every idea I had but equally gave her professional opinion on what would/wouldn’t work best with my skin, hair or eyes. Alice explained what products she would be using.
After the trail, Alice sent a detailed set of instructions on how best to prepare my skin and hair for the wedding. Being someone who had never had their hair or makeup done before, I really appreciated this as did my mum and bridesmaids who were also having their hair and makeup done by Alice.
On the morning of the wedding, Alice arrived on time and was so positive. We spoke all of the way through which helped my nerves greatly. Everyone who saw and has seen my hair and makeup has said how beautiful it was. Both my hair and makeup lasted all day and needed no touch ups whatsoever. I didn’t want to take it out or off by the end of the day.
My mum, my bridesmaids and I all felt that Alice helped to begin the day in the most positive way. Alice was patient, professional, kind, friendly, prepared and organised. I cannot sing her praises enough! I hope to have the opportunity to book Alice again in the future 💖"
Bride, Charlotte Meredith
"Alice was amazing she went above and beyond for the whole wedding party. She was so patient with my little girl who was apprehensive and never had hair or make up done. Alice I can’t thank you enough from the trial to the wedding day you were amazing, thorough and stayed in touch throughout."
Bride, Ella Warburton
Alice is just amazing! Alice did my sisters bridal make up and bridal party and I was so happy with my make up I booked Alice for my wedding. Nothing is too much trouble for Alice she gets back to you so quickly answering any questions and makes you feel at ease. Alice is so reliable and professional. On the day I found Alice such a calming influence and I was so happy with my make up and it stayed on so well. Alice really listens and makes suggestions. I couldn’t recommend Alice highly enough!
Bride, Amy McGifford
"Alice was my hair and makeup artist for my wedding and I can’t recommend her enough. She is very talented and was an absolute delight to work with on the morning of my wedding. Alice knew exactly what I wanted to achieve and it was really reassuring and fun to go through the trial process ahead of the wedding. Alice also did a wonderful job with my mum’s hair and makeup as she was a little unsure about what style to choose. Alice demonstrated an incredible amount of care and attention and made me feel absolutely beautiful on the day. Thank you so so much Alice x
Bride, Chloe Roawn
"Alice was absolutely fantastic from trial to wedding day. Hair and make up was beautiful and exactly what I asked for! Alice was so organised and took any worry of timings for the day completely out of my hands! So professional but also so lovely to be around! Definitely the person you want around on your wedding day! Thank you much for making me look like a beautiful bride (and for my bridesmaids too!)"
Bride, Katie Griffiths
"I could not recommend Alice more! She was incredible from the first trial to the wedding day, she was quick to respond to my messages and so accommodating when I suddenly needed someone to do our hair (aswell as makeup) and again when I changed timings last minute. It was like having a friend around on the day of the wedding and I couldn’t have been happier to have her getting me ready. She is so incredibly talented and I would recommend her again and again. Thanks so much Alice :) xxx
Bride, Racahel Johnson
"Alice was absolutely brilliant from the initial first contact, the trial all the way through to my special day. Not only is she incredibly professional but she makes you feel so comfortable and so easy to talk to. Alice - you made me feel like a princess all day and my makeup lasted all the way through! I didn’t want to take it off. The bridesmaids and mums were all just as chuffed. I can’t wait for my sisters wedding in March where we can do it all again!
Thank you so much Alice you are a dream! X
Bride, Kelly Duignan
"Couldn’t have had the morning I had without Alice, truly one of the best decisions I made for my day! She even stepped in to help put me in my dress and earlier in the morning asked for my opinion as we went along on things she knew I am extra fussy on! Nothing was too much trouble and the only thing I’m sad about it that I won’t be seeing her again soon!! Just such a lovely person and so good at what she does (both hair and make up wise). No matter what your taste is, she will help you achieve the end goal. 100% recommend.
Bride, Katrina Wright
"The most amazing wedding make up and hair! Couldn’t have asked for better from the trial to the actual wedding day, nothing was too much trouble and Alice was very responsive throughout. I would recommend Alice to any bride!"
Bride, Daisy Carus
"Both my wife and I had our bridal hair and make up done by Alice in September. We are both not big on make up usually and had very particular styles in mind. We enquired with many hair & make up artists to find someone we both felt comfortable with and who could make us feel our best on our special day - without absolutely breaking the bank. Alice stood out from the first enquiry email - she made us both feel heard and seen, took any anxieties away and was so friendly and personal from the first message! When we had her over at our house for the bridal trial, it felt like a Sunday morning with a friend within minutes. Alice listened to all our wishes and created an incredible style - we both felt ready for Hollywood! On our wedding day, Alice truly blew it out of the water. Not only recreated she the style perfectly and was able to make little adjustments effortlessly, her emotional support during bridal prep was absolutely second to none! As you can imagine, we were both nervous ahead of the big day but Alice managed to make us both feel so at ease with her wonderful attitude and care. We couldn’t recommend Alice enough. She’s such a wonderful person inside and out, with remarkable skills all while still priced fairly. We will definitely book her again in a heart beat! Thank you so much for everything,"
Brides, Mrs & Mrs Kiewel
"I booked Alice for my wedding after coming across her page on Instagram as her style was exactly what I was looking for. I booked a trial and it couldn't of gone better, Alice listened to exactly what I wanted and I loved the end result. For the big day she planned everything out to perfection, helped with anything we needed, and was so professional. I absolutley loved my make up and my bridesmaids looked beautiful. I can't thank Alice enough!"
Bride, Claire Winrow
"Alice did hair and makeup for me and two others and makeup only for three others at my wedding reception last week and we were so impressed! Before the event Alice replied quickly to emails and she arrived early on the day to set up. I really enjoyed having Alice there on the day - she talked us through our hair and makeup choices and was super helpful. She had really good equipment and high quality makeup. We were all incredibly happy with our looks. Thank you so much Alice!"
Bride, Amy Cairns
"Alice did the hair for myself, my bridesmaids, mum of bride and groom and a couple of guests. She is so warm and friendly she just made us all feel at ease. My hair lasted till the next day and not one strand was out of place on the day! Thank you Alice for everything. Would definitely recommend and hope you can do my hair again soon."
Bride, Hannah Sivills
"Alice stepped in to do my make-up on my wedding day and for our Registry wedding and she did the most amazing job! She was super professional, helpful and kind and helped to create a beautiful and contemporary look that suited my style. She has a great eye for what works and makes you feel instantly comfortable. Thank you Alice - you were the best!"
Bride, Zoe Turner
"Alice did my wedding makeup last month and I honestly couldn't have asked for more. I'm not big into makeup and I've never had it done professionally before but after having people come up to my 10 hours into the day to ask how my makeup was still perfect. I'd definitely do it again for a special occasion. Alice came to my parents to do the makeup and worked great with the hairdresser too. Thank you so much Alice"
Bride, Siobhan O'Boylan
"Alice came to the rescue when my previously booked MUA cancelled 1 week before my wedding day. I was worried about organising a new MUA at such short notice, but Alice came recommended and responded to all my messages immediately. She offered to squeeze in a trial too but unfortunately didn't have time to fit one in. It was a risk not having a trial but I didn't regret it as Alice took her time to find out EXACTLY what I wanted on the day. She was always checking colours with me and making great suggestions based on pictures I showed her. I was incredibly happy with the end result which lasted all day and night. She's easy to talk to, professional and confident in her skills which made the already day even more perfect. Thank you so much! X"
Bride, Katie Carrahar
"There’s isn’t enough words to express how brilliant Alice is! She completely made me feel at ease- having never had makeup or hair professionally done before I was a little unsure what to ask for but Alice did wonders with her skills and got to know my style and preferences perfectly while working her magic!
Alice is a breath of fresh air.. truly and I can’t say Thankyou enough to her for being there with me on my special day. The best!
Bride, Natalie McKenna
"Alice was the most wonderful MUA for my wedding day. She was professional, really friendly and a lovely person! My makeup looked AMAZING, Alice listened to what I wanted and I felt so comfortable!

Bride, Emma Winstanley
"Alice did the makeup for myself, three bridesmaids, my mum and mother in law for my wedding last week. She did an incredible job, we were al delighted and our makeup looked great all day. She was so friendly and completely professional and I can't recommend her highly enough! Thank you so much Alice!"
Bride, Emma Jenkinson
"I would highly recommend Alice for bridal hair and makeup! Alice came to my house for a trial to go through my ideas and try out a few hairstyles which was helpful as I am terrible with hair/ makeup. The individual eyelashes were great as well, they didn't feel like I had anything on but looked amazing! Alice completely put my at ease on the day and the bridesmaids and I were really happy with the final results - got a lot of compliments!! Thanks Alice :)"
Bride, Niki Fraine
"Alice did my hair and make up for my wedding on Friday as well as my bridesmaids. I couldn’t have been happier with how everyone’s hair and make up was, everyone looked amazing! She planned out a schedule for the day which was really helpful and she was very quick at getting back to me about anything. She really helped with keeping me calm on the day. Alice was really friendly and professional, the bridesmaids also mentioned how nice she was and how happy they were with hair/make up. Thankyou so much Alice!"
Bride, Gemma Wood
"Thank you so much, Alice! You planned everything down to the tee. All the girls looked beautiful and were so happy with their makeup. I loved my makeup, it was exactly what I wanted for the big day, it stayed perfect all night, even in the heat. Thanks again!"
