Pamela and Kelly-Ann are an absolutely amazing duo, from pre trial discussions to the moment I met with them they knew exactly the look I was going for. On my wedding day they couldn’t have been more professional and helpful, everyone’s hair and makeup was absolutely flawless. Pamela and Kelly-Ann even went as far as to help me into my dress for my reveal and fixed the dress for photos. More than I could have expected from them. I honestly cannot recommend this talented duo more, they are incredible at their craft!

Pamela was my make up artist for our Wedding back in December and her sister Kelly Ann did my hair and I found them brilliant to deal with right from the beginning. I had a trial a few weeks before the wedding and they made a valid point that a trial is both for the bride & also the hair and make up artists to see how things look & how to work with your hair/skin etc. On the morning of the wedding they were very professional and created a really calm vibe. They did hair & make up for myself, my 2 bridesmaids, my man & sister in law & everything ran smoothly. They stayed around til everyone was in their dresses & made sure we all looked 100% :). Throughout the day my hair and make up stayed in place perfectly. Even when outside in the wind for photos my hair did not budge! I would definitely recommend both of these ladies for any bride to be. Thank you to both of you for doing such a great job on all of us x

I couldn't of been happier that I chose Pamela and Kelly Anne to do our makeup and hair for my wedding day. From the moment I met them at my trial we just were made feel so comfortable around them and the makeup and hair look they done was exactly what I had wanted. On the morning of our wedding when I seen the ladies arrive to my house I felt panic as it was all about to become real but they instantly made us feel calm and relaxed and this made the morning go so smoothly they had times to a tee and helped with when to get imto my dress and all little touches. We had a great laugh and even after they had finished their work they stayed on to help out and mixed with some of the guests that called to the house even done a bit of sowing!! Their professionalism but friendliness is still all talked about by ourselves but our guests too. I will definatly be booking in for any future occasions I have. I cannot say how highly recommended these 2 ladies are.

Excellent sister duo who are both super talented. Pamela and KellyAnne are an amazing sister duo who are both exceptionally talented at what they do. After reading some reviews online I made contact with Pamela. From first contact it was an absolutely amazing service. She was always quick to answer any queries/messages and was both helpful and friendly. As soon as I met the girls they understood exactly what I was looking for and I was delighted with the look that they created, going beyond my expectations. My pre-wedding trial was super relaxed and informal. This put me at ease and I knew I was in safe hands for my wedding day. Pamela recommended fabulous products that I continue to use today. On the morning of my wedding when I arrived at Boyne Hill House, Pamela and KellyAnne were already there ahead of time, set up and ready to work their magic on us. They looked after my 2 bridesmaids, my mother, mother -in-law, flower girl and Me. All of the hair and makeup completed was just exceptional. Everything ran smoothly, allowing us time to relax, enjoy photos and get our dresses on. Both Pamela and KellyAnne are incredible at what they do. They work seamlessly together and provide a relaxed environment. It was such a pleasure to have them there on my wedding day. Pamela and KellyAnne stayed with our bridal party right up until leaving to walk up the aisle, ensuring everything was just perfect. I cannot recommend these girls highly enough, so professional whilst being fun and relaxed. Thanks to both girls for making my day extra special. Love, Alison

I had been recommended Pamela by a friend and found her to be very easy to get on with. I didn't have a particular look in mind and left the look in Pamela's hands and I was so delighted with my trial that I went with Pamela's suggestions. Pamela also recommended a hair stylist who did an amazing job. On the morning of the wedding we had a very fun, and relaxed time getting ready. I had a few hic ups with numbers getting ready in the morning and Pamela was so good and accommodating and really helped me out. I was so happy with my hair and makeup that we are doing a final photo shoot and will be hoping to coordinate the photo shoot with Pamela so she can work her magic again.

Ah thank you so much for the lovely words Edel, it was my pleasure looking after you and your party. We had a great morning. Cant wait to see what you have in mind for the final shoot xxx

Pamela looked after myself and my bridesmaid for my wedding. I had followed Pamela online, and Pamela also came highly recommended by friends and previous brides. From my make up trial to walking up the isle, I was delighted with how we were looked after. Pamela's attention to detail allowed for perfect results. I was delighted with my bridal make up, which lasted well into the wee hours. Pamela was relaxed and calming throughout and was a joy to have around. Highly recommended

The ladies were just amazing ! From the moment I contacted Pamela to the moment I was ready and walking out the door to the ceremony room. I was so unsure about hair and KellyAnn was so understanding in the trial run and didnt even bat an eyelid when I changed the style the day before the wedding and Pamela just really nailed what I wanted and made it happen,my bridesmaids and mum were also so happy with their make up/ hair on the morning.It was really great having two ppl that worked so well together, they had a brilliant system and it kept the flow going while still being fun and exciting.The ladies made the morning really easy I was so chuffed with everything I could not recommend them enough !!!

I booked Pamela and KellyAnne to do hair and makeup for my wedding on 5th April 2019 in Dunboyne Castle for myself, my bridesmaid and my Mam. They were recommended to me by a friend and I was so glad I booked them both. From the very first time I made contact right through to my big day i found them very professional and friendly. I felt I could get in touch anytime for any queries I had. The morning of the wedding they arrived at the venue in plenty of time. They made me feel calm and relaxed. Nothing was rushed and they stayed to add the finishing touches right before I walked up the aisle. I would highly recommend them both and will definitely be booking them again for other special occasions.

Pamela and Kelly Anne did my make up and my hair, as well as the ones of my Mum, sisters and bridesmaid on the day of my wedding and everything was just perfect, everyone was so happy about their look ! As a bride, I was stressed about that part as I wanted to look my best still looking natural, Pamela managed to do just that ! She provided great advice during the trials, was very responsive to all my questions, very professional and making me feel much more relaxed about this part of the day ! Pamela was recommended to me and I would recommend her with full confidence to anyone !

Pamela and her team are absolutely incredible! I got married June 30th 2018 and Pamela literally was a life saver In so many ways! The team are so professional and just amazing at what they do, my hair looked fabulous all day and night! When I woke up the following day in my honeymoon suite my hair was actually still perfect and had hardly moved!!! I had a tattoo I wanted covered on my chest as well and Pamela worked her magic so well you couldn’t even tell I had make up over it! It simply just disappeared! On top of all of this we had some of the usual wedding morning dramas, photographers were late, which meant we ended up leaving late, Pamela and her team went above and beyond by taking photos of us all getting ready while we waited for the photographer, then they tidied over the house and locked up for us after we left!! You couldn’t get a better team of professional hair and makeup artists for your special day. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!!! One of my bridesmaids actually booked Pamela for her own wedding as she was so impressed with her team on my special day!
Response from Pamela Matthews Make Up Artist
Ah Peggy, thank you so so much! We were only too happy to help out that morning, we absolutely love getting stuck in on the morning of a wedding and doing whatever jobs need to be done! Its not everyday that a bride gets picked up in a helicopter to be brought to the ceremony so we were delighted to stay and catch a glimpse of that!! Was lovely seeing you again and catching up at Eilish wedding. Wishing you, Keith & Izzy all the best for the future xxx

I chose Pamela and Kellyanne to do the hair and makeup for my wedding in 2018. The service and professionalism from the girls is second to none. They are amazing at what they do and I rebook them at any opportunity. My wedding fell during the big heatwave so it was an extremely hot day. I was worried about how my make up would last with the heat but it was immaculate all day. The girls put everyone in my house at ease that morning. They are super friendly and down to earth. I would recommend them to anyone without any hesitation.

Thank you so much for the lovely review Ciara! Will I ever forget the heat that day...my poor lippies were even melting! Not complaining though, what's seldom is wonderful!! It was our pleasure looking after you and the girls and its been lovely having you back in the studio since then. Looking forward to catching up with you again soon. xxx

Myself and my bridal party could not have been happier with our make up on the day of my wedding. I wasnt looking for the traditional bridal look i wanted my eyes to pop more with liners and a coloured lip and that is exactly what i got i was thrilled. My bridemaids,my mam and my nana all had amazing make up applied and it lasted the full day. Not only is pamela amazing at her job but also is so friendly and professional.we all felt totally at ease on the morning as she was there so early to get started and was so chatty throughout.

Pamela was fantastic, my make up was gorgeous & lasted until the early hours with no touch ups. This was unusual for me as I have oily skin but the make up stayed in place & I didn’t have to worry about it for photos. I booked Pamela about a year in advance & she kept in contact with me to make sure I was looking after my skin, drinking water, she let me know what products she would be using & made sure I had no allergies and was happy with everything. She was so pleasant to deal with, kept me calm on the morning of the wedding, came to the house in plenty of time & even gave my daughter some of her make up brushes to play with when she was getting restless. Overall, I would 100% recommend Pamela Matthews hair & make up, she went above & beyond.

I couldn't recommend these two gals enough. I had found them through instagram and loved the natural style of both hair and make up. Pamela and Kelly Anne are just fantastic to deal with. From trial to big day, they were so friendly, helpful and put me at complete ease. Always quick to answer any queries. On the day itself, they were adaptable and accommodating and made us all stunning. The compliments were flying all day...I actually think people were in shock I could look like that! They are amazing at what they do

From the moment I contacted Pamela, it was fabulous. She listened to what I had a vision of, asked loads of questions and showed me different options at my trial. Kelly Anne was the same. On the morning of the wedding, everything was so calm and they were so good with my little girl. I wasnt sure if she would let us do anything with her hair, but Kelly Anne treated her like a princess and she was delighted with her big girl curls. My hair and makeup didn't need to be touched up all day or night. Couldn't fault anything with their service.

Pamela done my make up for our wedding in October I was absolutely thrilled with the outcome she was great on the day not only for been there as a professional make up artist but was there to calm the nerves and turned my plain jane face into fantastic work that would be seen in magazines. The trial that is offered was great as advise on how to prepare the skin for the number of weeks before the big day was amazing and I am still using the technique. I would highly recommend Pamela and would once again like to thank her for making my day even more memorable looking back at photos make up looks as fresh. Thanks again

Pamela did my make up for my wedding last June and I must say she was great to deal with and the finished product was amazing. From the point of contact until the minute she walked out the door just before I left for the church she was incredibly professional. Even before I booked her services she was always on hand, either by phone or email, to offer advice. Her tips on getting my skin in tip top condition before the wedding were great, while my make up on the day was just what I wanted; natural and flawless. I'm sure you'll see this Pamela so I just wanted to say a huge thanks and apologise for not saying it earlier. If this marraige doesn't work out you'll be on speed dial for the second one!!
