Bridal and Beauty Testimonials







“Having had a bad experience with a make-up artist before, I was pretty nervous about engaging one for my wedding. I nearly decided to do the make-up myself, but I am so glad I didn’t. Charlie really took the time to understand my ‘normal’ look and then apply it in such a way that it lasted and looked wonderful all day. Something I could not have done. Couldn’t be happier. Thank you!”

“Thanks so much for your lovely words as well. I only felt so pretty because of your beautiful handi-work! What an artist! I was chuffed to bits & can’t wait for you to recreate the look again on 13th July.”

“Charlie – Thanks for being so fab last Wednesday – not only did you deliver what I wanted with regards to my make-up, but you were fabulous with the girls and left me feeling very calm and chilled out. ”

” Dear Charlie – you made me feel like a princess on Saturday, with perfect hair and make up. It was the way Mike and I felt so relaxed and pampered that made all the difference. Its hard to know how the cumulitive months of planning can be stressful but your magical treatments made all that go away – Lets make it a regular thing !!” Wedding Venue – Rhodes House Oxford.

Charlie is so talented! Charlie was my make-up artist for my UK wedding. She completely understood the look I wanted and so achieved it! She made the morning so calm and relaxing and you really felt centre of attention. Charlie also did the make up for my bridesmaids, and they were delighted with their make-up. Charlie also was happy to teach about make-up application, so I could do any touch ups, but the make up lasted all day. She is so lovely and really skilled at her job I would recommend to everyone!

Wow! Charlie really is the make up artist to use for your wedding! What fun we had getting ready for my wedding, it is the kind of experience every bride deserves.

Originally I wasn’t going to have my make up professionally done but my now husband wanted to surprise me so booked Charlie without me knowing. Once I knew about my surprise I was so excited. I went round to Charlie’s and had a trial session. This was so relaxing and a real treat. Perfect to get the excitement levels going and a very nice treat before the big day. I had a 2 hour trial where we experimented with what would look good on the day. Charlie wanted me to be totally happy and comfortable and when I suggested more bronzer Charlie made sure that everything was perfect and I was happy with the look.

An added bonus is that Charlie does waxing and lots of beauty treatments so I was able to book my pre-wedding wax with her too. I will definitely be be using her in the future for further treatments.

The day itself Charlie was relaxed,professional, supportive and fitted in wonderfully with the girls. Her experience and breadth of knowledge really shone through which helped make the wedding morning flow smoothly. She did myself and my 3 bridesmaids as well as my Mum. We all looked beautiful and felt totally pampered.

I’m so grateful my husband treated me to my make up and even more grateful that he chose so wisely. Charlie helped to make our wedding day so special, so thank you Charlie! [Read less]

Charlie is fantastic, nothing is ever to much trouble. She did a brilliant job at doing mine & my 4 bridesmaids make up for my wedding in December. She also did a fab job at involving my 8 year old bridesmaid who was to young to have make up but after watching us all have our make up done wanted to be a part of the pampering.
On the morning of the wedding she just got stuck in even though it was a manic morning with lots of people coming & going.
Shes a lovely bubbly person & thats exactly what you need on the morning of your wedding when your feeling nervous & stressed!!

Charlie was my wedding make-up artist, and she also did makeup for my mum and two bridesmaids. And I have to say she was excellent! All four of us were delighted with our make-ups and we looked really really good. The whole experience was very relaxing, and from the first moments during my trial appointment I knew that I was in safe hands. Charlie is very competent and professional, but she also is very friendly and makes you feel like you’ve known her all your life. She also goes above and beyond, doing much more than just the make-up. She was kind enough to drop off two of my lost wedding guests to the church, which I thought was so kind and thoughtful. Since my wedding I came back to Charlie as a client, and I will definitely use her services again.

I engaged Charlie for my wedding back in 2011, having met her at a wedding fair held by the venue. She really took the time to understand the look I wanted and so after the trial I felt completely confident engaging her for the day.. Getting ready with Charlie was super-relaxed, the day started with a lovely neck and shoulder massage (which I requested as an additional treatment), and we then did nails followed by makeup. I left the house relaxed and glowing. The makeup did last all day, looks great (flawless) in the photos, and have remained a client of Charlie’s for other beauty therapies ever since. I have no hesitation at all in recommending Charlie for Bridal Makeup.

Hi Charlie, thank you so much for helping to make Victoria & Dominic’s wedding day so special. We were all delighted by both your professional & friendly manner both prior to & on the day. You helped to keep us calm & actually enjoy the preparations Victoria looked beautiful & our slightly hesitant bridesmaid also lovely. Your care in our pre-wedding discussions meant that Mum’s sensitive skin had no reaction even after the 12 hours. Please feel free to use any of these comments on your website. I look forward to seeing you for some pampering when we are next in the area. hopefully soon. With very best wishes
