Quality of service
Married on 27th Aug 2016
Nikki I cannot thank you enough for everything you did for us for the wedding... you were an absolute dream from my first email to you right through!!!! You did all the make up the day of the wedding flawlessly and exactly how each and every person wanted it (7people in total)...

Your singing at the ceremony literally had people in tears too and you voice is truly amazing!!

The make up touch ups before we all came up the aisle to even before you left after the ceremony was so greatly appreciated too!!! Amazing how much lipstick I picked up on my cheeks!!! Anyone would be lucky to have you for their big day, not to mention the lovely atmosphere you brought to the house the morning of the wedding!!!!
Already one of my friends wants to book you in!!!!
You were a true gem and I just want to thank you so so much for everything... I can only imagine the emails you must have to send on a daily basis yet every single time you emailed me, it was like I was your only client... you added so much to my experience of it all!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything!!!!

I would recommend Nikki to all other brides out there, I was so lucky she had a date left as I booked quite late with her. Nikki was so professional and friendly, I'm quite a shy person adn she made me feel really at ease. She was fantastic on the day doing extra bits to help out the bridal party and having a laugh with us girls. Nikki did make up for myself and my 4 bridesmaids and my mother but not at any point did we feel rushed or panicked! Our make up didn't budge all day and the quality of the looks in the phototgraphs was fantastic every one who saw them mentioned how flawless our skin looked ( and I have quite bad skin with a lot of acne scarring)

Nikki is a true professional. Her make up skills are second to none. Goes above and beyond her duties to ensure you're 100% happy with your make up. Provides a friendly personal service and would highly recommend her to any bride in the future. If I was to do it all again I wouldn't change a thing. Fab service.

Nikki, WOW!You were absolutely amazing on the day from the make up ( which stayed on all the next day also ) to helping me with my dress to the singing. I couldnt have asked for any better. You got so many complimets and made the ceremony so special. Can I also thank you from the bottom of my heart for the video of my grandad walking me up the aisle, I was so emotional watching this but absolutely delighted to have it as we had no videographer on the day. thanks again

Hi Nikki,A BIG BIG thank you for make up and church singing at our wedding in Cavan on Sunday 2nd June.
Everybody was commenting on my makeup and I did not touch up once during the entire day and it still looked perfect at the end of a very long day! - the make up was fab, looked very natural and comfortable on. Also my sister was delighted with her make up - she felt like she was not wearing make up at all - very natural and enhancing. Make up on my mother was also fab - very warm on her and something we never see on her. In the pictures we saw so far the make up looks amazing.
The church music was better than perfect - your sound is truly amazing and once again our guests commented on the song choice and on your sound. Some described your sound as breath-taking and captivating - for me you made the hair stand on my arms in particular with The Rose, You raise me up, my entrance song etc. You really are a very talented person.I was only disappointed I walked up the aisle to fast as you never got to do Gabriel's Oboe as it is one of my favourites. We will definitely be recommending you to friends.
Thanks again and the best of luck with organising your own wedding.

We couldn't have been happier with your service. I have recommended you to everyone i know thats getting married. Myself and the girls were all delighted with the make up and everyone is still talking about your singing in the church, it made the ceremony so special.
Thanks so much for everything. I've attached some of the close up pics from the photographer.

So sorry I didn't even get to speak to you the other day, when I got out of the church I was bombarded by guests and then shoved into the car and off to get photos done. Thanks so so much to you both for the most amazing wedding music I have ever heard, you were giving me shivers in the church you were that good, and everybody was talking about you afterwards saying how fabulous you were. I will definitely be recommending you to anybody I know that is getting married.

Thanks a million again and best of luck with your own wedding day, I hope you have as much fun as I did! ;0)

Hi Nikki, So sorry its taken me so long to get back to you. On behalf of myself and Carl thank you from the bottom of our hearts for contributing so much to making our day so special. Every single person commented on the beautiful and amazing siniging in the church-The Prayer brought tears to one of my aunts eyes-I hadn't realised it was one of her favourties. You'll be delighted to know that the make up still looked fresh at 4.30am in the residents bar-can't say quite so much for my feet- we literally danced all night. Mark took some gorgeous photos-that show off the fab make up-as soon as I get the disk of pictures, I'll send on the best ones for your album. Thanks again for all your help through the whole process. I've recommended you to EVERYONE I know who has gotten engaged :-) Best of luck with your own wedding planning. Many thanks again

Hi Nikki, Just a quick note to say how happy I was with my make up and with you singing in the church on my special day. For someone like me that does not wear make up as a rule it was so natural and flawless. The amount of people that came up to me on the day to compliment my make up was unreal. Thanks again Nikki and I would have no problem in recommending you in the future. Take care and happy Christmas to you and your family. Regards, x

Can not believe wedding and honeymoon are over already! It goes so quickly but had an amazing time so can't complain. No improvement needed at all as far as I'm concerned. You were a gem all day and did such an amazing job on all of our make up and at the church. I shall be recommending you to everyone! Everyone was raving about you! I can't wait to get our dvd and hear it back. Thanks so much for everything Nikki. You played a big part in making our day brilliant and memorable and I really appreciate it xx

Hi Nikki,

Happy new year to you and all your family, we hope you had a lovely christmas too :)

We want to say a massive thank you yet again for doing mine my mam's and my 3 bridesmaids make up and also a little touch to my little girl (she was delighted!!) we all wish we could have you with us on a daily basis to make us feel as fab as you did on my wedding day!!

From my 1st contact with you everything was made so easy, you made everything so relaxed and easy for me going for my trial was effortless and i was delighted with how you did my make up.

We also had you singing in the church at our ceremony, I have to say it was just perfect guests asked was it a recording i had in the church!! my uncle also said you made the hairs on the back of his neck stand on end and brought a tear to many an eye, personally you helped me with song choices and anything i suggested was fine and easy no problem at all, I was absolutly thrilled with the music in the church it was exactly what i wanted and you sang every song so beautifully, it really made the ceremony that extra bit special :)

I havent recieved the photographers shots back or the videographers yet but when i so I will forward on whatever I have that has you in them!!

I sent a couple of pics i do have to your facebook page (finally figured it out!!)

Thank you so so much again and we wish you all the very best for the year ahead,

Hi Nikki,
I just wanted to thank you for the fantastic make up job you did for my wedding July 14th. The make up was natural looking and comfortable to wear. It lasted all day long also which was very important to me. You made myself and all the girls feel very relaxed on the morning of the wedding also. The church cermeony was absolutely beautiful. Every song I chose sounded beautiful and all the guests were commenting on how much they had enjoyed the music throughout the ceremony. Thanks again for your help and support throughout the planning stages of my wedding, there was never a silly question or thought and I really appreciate that. I believe my friend has already booked you for her wedding next year and I will definately be reccommending you again.
