Once the initial excitement of getting engaged settled down I felt quite daunted at the prospect of organising our wedding especially as I hadn’t lived in the Sussex area for very long. Claire Wallace was recommended to me by our wedding venue, Ashdown Park Hotel and after viewing her website I was very impressed.
I made the initial contact and Claire was very keen for us to meet for a trial as soon as possible as she knew it was important that I was happy and confident in booking her to be my make up and hair stylist for my special day. When we met for the initial trial Claire was very warm and friendly and it felt like I spending time with an old friend, she really did put me at ease. I went armed with photos of my dress and hair and make up ideas taken from magazines, but I didn’t have a clear cut image of how I wanted to look on the day.
Claire really was the expert, she looked at the pictures I’d found and matched a look which fitted my dress and complemented me. As my hair was quite short at our initial meeting we agreed to meet again nearer the time for my hair trial, which also presented her with an opportunity to meet my chief bridesmaid as Claire was also booked to do her hair and make up on the day. I provided Claire with a photograph of my other bridesmaid and she knew just exactly what to do on the day.
Claire had provided me with a timeline to ensure everything ran smoothly on the day. Claire arrived on time and was completely organised and calm and did a great job in keeping us all calm too!
Every contact I had with Claire was very professional and she immediately puts you at ease. I would have no hesitation in recommending Claire, she did a fantastic job with the hair and make up for myself and my two bridesmaids and I can’t thank you enough.
