Amazing job on my hair and make up, made the day super easy for me and we had some great chats and laughs during the service, can’t recommend Neil enough!
Neil and Peach were amazing, Masters of their craft. Both mum's and I loved our hair and
make-up and felt very special for my big day.
Neil immediately put us at ease, and at no time did we feel rushed.
I would highly recommend Neil to anyone needing an artist.
Thank you again.
Absolutely delighted with Neil, he was an absolute joy and just truly understood my vision for my wedding look, not to mention being incredibly funny and kind! Can’t recommend him enough!
Neil is very professional yet friendly!! He comes earlier to set up his equipment and makeup and started doing my makeup at the scheduled time! He’s so easygoing and understands makeup so well! I received so many compliments for my look and hair on my wedding ceremonies and my makeup lasted through the day!! He even stayed back a little bit to help me with my dresses and jewellery just to ensure that I look great that day!♥️✨ thank you, Neil!!!
