Hi Yvonne

Thanks again for everything, my day was even more special because of the part you played in it!

Before my wedding day I had always done my own make-up.  A good friend recommended Yvonne and I was a little sceptical about trusting someone else at first.  The moment Yvonne arrived at the house the morning of the wedding the atmosphere relaxed.  She had been to my house for the trial and kept in touch in the lead up to the wedding, and because of this and her natural, warm personality it did not feel like she was a stranger on the day.  Instead, it felt like she was the wise, experienced friend who gave brilliant advice and who could fix any problem that came up.  For example, I broke the button that was supposed to hold up my train.  Before the word disaster came to mind she had a needle and thread out and, although pregnant, got down to mend it.  While my bridemaids were getting themselves dressed she helped me fix my dress and put on the finishing touches.  All this on top of making me look better than I ever have before.  She brought an amazing assortment of the finest brands of make-up in every colour imaginable.  She encouraged me to try new things which paid off on the day, particulary the fake eyelashes which stayed on right up to the honeymoon.  The make-up lasted perfectly all day and into the early hours of the next day with very little touch ups.  Even though I bought the same make-up myself I could not apply it as well as she did that day.  She was very understanding with members of the party who were not used to make-up, applying a lighter amount to ensure their comfort.  Even when finished, she stayed on until we were ready to go, chatting with everybody to ensure everybody was alright, and helping wherever needed.  We all agreed that she greatly contributed to our happiness and calmed our nerves.  I would definitley use Yvonne for every occasion I have in the future and would happily recommend her.

Hi Yvonne I wanted to send you a thank you card but couldnt find your address on your website. You did such an amazing job on all of us, Val wasnt recognised initially by her husband (he had to look twice!), so many people said mum looked fantastic and well you did an outstanding job on my make up….I did glow for the day and the make up stayed on. Carol commented that you and Marie were such fun on the morning of the wedding and I have to second that…you make a great team and I would recommend you both without any hesitation to prospective brides to be who want a great result with makeup and hair!

Hopefully our paths will cross again and sure if I need my make up done again when frequenting Kilkenny I will be sure to give you a shout.

Thanks so much again (and sorry I couldnt send you a personal card).

Hi Yvonne thank you so much for everything you did on the day ofmy wedding. You were so fantastic to deal with from the moment I contacted you, answering  questions and giving me skincare advice in the run up to the big day.

On the morning of the wedding when yourself and Marie arrived atthe door the fun began. The two of you were so lovely, it really felt like I hadgained two extra bridesmaids for the morning !

You spent so much time with each of us ensuring we werehappy with our make up  and giving us all individual looks. When the time came togetting ready, yourself and Marie were just amazing helping all of us to getinto our dresses, running to collect the bouquets from reception, fixing hatson the mum’s and making sure we were all perfect as we left for the church. Iam not sure we would have got out the door without the both of you !

Each of us got endless complements about our makeupand hair and throughout the day and they lasted well into the early hours !

I cannot recommend Yvonne and Marie more – they are afantastic combination and work seamlessly together. Not only did they do anamazing job on the whole bridal party but they were brilliant fun to havearound on the morning of the wedding. I just wish I could have them every day !

Hi Yvonne,

I just want to say a big thank you to you both for being part of my wedding day. Everyone said how great I looked and it’s all down to you both. You made me feel very relaxed and it was great to have you in the hotel that morning. My mam got loads of compliments too, she was delighted with herself :)
Yvonne, if you have any one-on-one make up lessons available at any stage over the summer please let me know as I would really like to do it.
I just want to say you make a great team and are brilliant at what you do.

Thanks a million.
Hope to see you again soon.
Anne Marie.
