Teresa is highly talented in all things hair. She is my go to for all occasions whether it be a blow out, colour or an elegant classic up style her ideas are always on trend for every occasion. Teresa and her team got me ready for my own wedding 10 years ago and then lots of bridal parties over the years and more recently as a wedding guest. I am always confident to know that I can leave the inspired creativity to Teresa and have an enjoyable, relaxed experience every time, and more importantly my hair will stay in place for the whole day and many times even on the next day too! Teresa listens to her customer and is always great to be around, she’s fun and chatty but still manages to deliver perfection. Any bride to be look no further than The Bridal Team, you are in expert hands with these girls.

I was absolutely delighted with the service provided by The Bridal Team, both in advance of, and on the actual day of our wedding. Tara and Teresa provided a friendly, professional and first class service, not only to myself, but to my mother and my now mother in law also. They listened to the various ideas that I had, and also made some very helpful suggestions. The girls tried out a number of different hair and makeup styles until I was entirely happy with the end result. I am so delighted that I had the opportunity to work with the Bridal Team, and I would happily recommend them to anyone in need of a hairdresser and makeup artist for their special day.

It was a pleasure to have Tara do my wedding makeup. She was so professional and a pleasure to have in the house the morning of the wedding. I love the skin prep she ensures before the make-up application and the lovely glow that comes with her looks. Thank you Tara! X

My make up was so perfect and remained so for the whole day, despite the sweaty heat. It was so important to me that I still looked like myself and Tara grasped that perfectly!  I loved my hair so so much - Teresa seemed to get the look I was going for even better than myself. My husband commented so many times throughout the day how much he loved my hair. The girls contributed so much to the calm, relaxed but fun atmosphere while getting ready. The whole experience with them was so wonderful and would chose them both again in a heartbeat!

Easily the best decision I made booking Teresa and Tara for my wedding hair and makeup. They were both so professional and kept everyone so calm on the day. My favourite makeup without a doubt from Tara and Teresa really understood my vision for my hair and got it spot on! So glad they were a part of my day. Cannot recommend them enough

I cannot recommend these girls highly enough as they managed to turn my nightmare wedding scenario into a day of joy and fun. After having to reschedule my wedding for the third time due to covid, Bridal Team were already booked for my new date. I was devastated and tried to see if they could accommodate me if we changed the wedding to later in the afternoon on the same date. I was delighted when they agreed to do this and all was on track. Unfortunately, the night before the wedding my best friend and bridesmaid was identified as a Covid close contact. I was in despair as all my new plans seemed to be unravelling. I was so stressed on the wedding morning, but the girls literally took over and quizzed me about possible bridesmaids replacements and went about helping me organise it, right down to ensuring the bridesmaid dress was suitable along with searching for accessories. They just calmed the whole situation down and nothing was a bother to them. They even made arrangements so they could stay until after the ceremony and touch up my makeup and hair due to the hot weather. They were so keen for the day to be perfect and did whatever they could to ensure this was the case. What a team, to say they love a challenge is an understatement.

Tara was just so amazing on the morning of the wedding. As our venue was a journey away for an early start, she went out of her way to stay closer by the night before which was much appreciated. We had such a chill morning and enjoyed all the chats together with the bridal party. I was just delighted with my make up and my bridesmaids make up, it was gorgeous. I would recommend Tara to anyone!

Tara was a dream to work with during our Covid wedding. On our third attempt we finally had our big day and nothing was too much for Tara. My bridal party and I were delighted with our make up. Tara did exactly what was asked of her, as she would say 'a polished version of yourself!' I have no hesitation in recommending Tara as a make up artist to anyone.

The bridal Team , What can I say , you really went out of your way to ensure that everything was perfect for our big day so professional, Friendly and nothing I mean nothing was a bother . We got Married last year during lockdown so our wedding was very intimate made even more special by having these girls. I knew what kind of style of hair I wanted all I had to do was explain and Teresa pulled it off to a tee and Tara made me look flawless I truly loved everything they were by my side that whole morning from the moment me and my chief bridesmaid my sister walked into the room we felt so relaxed and made feel so comfortable we had so much fun and we laughed I do think that’s so important to take it all in and enjoy it ,right to the very end the girls made sure everything was perfect putting on my vail and touching up makeup as I walked out my parents front door such great memories I will cherish forever thank you bridal Team keep up the amazing work you do girls ??????????????????????????????

The Bridal Team did both hair and make up for me and my bridal party on August 3rd. From the moment I contacted them they were so professional, capable and friendly. We had both hair and make up trials before the wedding and they did not stop until we all looked and felt exactly how we wanted to. Hair extensions were sorted and even dyed to exactly match the colour of my hair and one other member of the bridal party, they even advised on hair extensions for guests coming from the US. On the day, Teresa and Tara went way above the call of duty, not only did they get all of the bridal party looking perfect, at the last minute they fixed up hair and makeups that some family were not entirely happy with that were done elsewhere. And it did not stop there, they also helped with last minute transport issues and got some of our US guests to the church on time. Despite being put under extra unexpected pressure at the last minute, both girls went over and beyond to ensure everyone looked and felt exactly how they wanted to on the day. I could not recommend The Bridal Team any more highly, not only are they amazing at what they do, they are professional, friendly, resourceful and really will go way more than the extra mile without giving it a second thought. Its definitely more than a 10/10 from me.

Teresa, Tara and their team were amazing, even from the initial chat : consultant they were really keen to understand what I wanted and not push what they thought would work. Teresa and Tara take such a involved role with the hair and make up they provide - they put in so much time and care into the planning process to ensure that every detail is coveted ahead of the big day. On the wedding morning the ladies arrived and all systems go within minutes, I was really conscious that I didn’t want to be late or delayed and throughout the entire planning process Teresa and Tara assured me they had the timings covered and so they did! On the day they styled and beautified the 4 bridesmaids, flower girl, mother of the bride and the bride to each of our individual styles and preferences while also keeping on schedule - AMAZING!! They made time for the chats and even with the huge workload ahead of a 12 o clock we never felt rushed or under pressure. I loved the personal ownership that Teresa and Tara took and the fact that nothing was too much trouble, I felt like they had everything under control and was very confident they would do a great job. I have no issue recommending the Bridal Team, you won’t be disappointed, the team are so professional. All my bridal team and I were delighted with our Individual styles and how we looked on the day.

Teresa and Tara really are the dream team! Super talented and professional yet really friendly (and up for the craic!) they were key to making the morning of my wedding relaxed and fun. They truly listened to what I wanted and paid a great deal of care and attention to making sure that I was happy with my look and that I felt beautiful - I honestly wouldn't have wanted anyone else taking care of me on my big day.

From attending wedding to nights out Teresa was the perfect stylist to visit, her professionalism as well as her bubbly personality made every visit memorable. Her amazing work always left clients feeling fabulous… like it was a personal experience every time. I cannot recommend Teresa enough for her amazing stylish trends to her warm welcome ?? Teresa inspired me to always reach for the stars both as an employee and as a customer and that is what she is today a star ??

I’ve been lucky to have had Bridal Team both as a bride and as a bridesmaid. I don’t tend to wear much makeup & don’t like feeling overdone. Both Tara & Teresa listened & gave me exactly the look I felt so comfortable & happy with & really the best version of myself. And there’s no better way to begin your wedding morning than to have these two amazing ladies transforming you and putting you at your ease with such friendliness & laughter. They are absolute gems. And both so talented. I actually couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

I had such an amazing experience with Teresa and Tara from start to finish. We got married in Tuscany and travelling was not a problem for them. It was a sweltering 38 degrees on the day and my hair stayed put and didn’t frizz up like usual. They are great at what they do, so professional and timed everything out perfectly on the day so there was no stress. They’re also really friendly, nothing was too much trouble. I loved my hair and makeup and felt like a million dollars like every Bride should.
