"I can't thank Jules enough. From the moment we met she has been approachable, warm and friendly. We clicked straight away, she was great from the start. She supported and explored my ideas through trials , emails, phone calls, always happy to talk and help.
On the day she arrived early set up and got to work on the bridesmaids , mother of the bride and myself... Everything was perfect, everyone was thrilled with the results. Amazing and creative. . she even helped me to get in my dress ! What a star..
I looked amazing she did everything exact and to perfection, the photos looked flawless and my makeup and hair lasted all day and through to the early hours. Thank you so much Jules. I would highly recommended to all brides and bridal parties.. "

I thought I'd send through a few photos of our very happy wedding day in Burford.
I also wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you did leading up to and on the day. We had so much fun and laughter, I was delighted you were with us and very much part of our special day. I didn't have a moments nerves ( until all our make up was done!) because we were so relaxed and having such a giggle. It goes without saying of course that you and Elisha created a wonderful look for us, we were delighted with our hair and make up. I keep looking at the photos hardly believing everything was so perfect. I'm only sad that we can't do it all again!
Kind regards Emma
I hope you are well.
Just wanted to send you a HUGE thank you for Saturday. We had the most perfect day. I hope you can use the following testimonial;
Thank you so much for making me look and feel fantastic on my wedding day. My bridesmaids were over the moon with their hair and you also managed to achieve the impossible with my Mum - she is normally a very fussy customer where her hair is concerned but loved both her hair and make-up. We were all complimented throughout the day and personally I felt like a princess! I am so pleased that I decided to have monthly facials in the lead up to the wedding, my skin is in the best condition ever and looked truly flawless on our special day. It's been an absolute pleasure getting to know you and I will be recommending your services at every opportunity.Thank you... thank you... thank you!!

Just received a beautiful testimonial from Caroline who got married on 22 January 2016 at The Old Swan and Minster Mill. Caroline is a successful business woman and runs her own Award Winning Exclusive Matchmaking Business in London called Mutual Attraction
"A huge thank you to Julie (and Sophie) for making my wedding day so special. We had such a good time the morning of the wedding getting ready and we all LOVED our hair and make up, it looked stunning and everything stayed in place the whole day. I really can't thank you enough, you did an amazing job and any bride will be lucky to have you by their side :) xx"
So so sorry for the long delay on these. We've been totally rubbish since the wedding. We went from super organised and on top of everything to utterly useless! I wonder if other couples find this. We've only just got our pics up together.
I hope you are well.
I just wanted to let you know how pleased I was with my hair and make up on our Wedding day, I absolutely loved it! I felt completely pampered and very relaxed just before I walked down the aisle.
My hair and make up lasted all day and the only bit I needed to top up was my lip stain/ gloss- as expected.
Gem and Kym were also very pleased with their hair and Gem's make up.
It was just all perfect! So thank you so much. I will highly recommend you to anyone who is getting married or just fancies getting glammed up!
I have attached a few pictures from the day.

From the moment I saw Jules' website, I knew I wanted to book her for my wedding. As soon as I met her I felt in safe hands. The whole service from start to finish was professional and caring, with such attention to detail. Thank you Jules, my bridesmaids were over the moon with how they looked, and I felt incredible. X

Jules did an amazing job on my hair and make-up! My hair is very temperamental as it is naturally curly and can be very wild! Having had many disastrous experiences at the hairdressers i did not want this on my wedding day, and so hair was one of my priorities and booked straight after the venue. I was worried about how it would look on the day, though I really didn't need to as Jules made it look perfect. What makes Jules really special is that it feels like you have another friend with you on the day. Having lovely suppliers is so important and Jules fit in with my family and friends and was laughing and joking along with us. It was a pleasure to have her with me during the morning of my wedding. I would highly recommend to anyone!

I've just got back from my honeymoon this afternoon and just wanted to email you to say thank you so much for the wonderful hair and make up you did for my wedding last weekend. From the moment you stepped into our house that morning, I felt relaxed and knew that everything would run on time. I still can't believe we were all ready with time to spare! You put everyone at ease and we all absolutely loved the finished result. The bridesmaids were all thrilled with their hair, as was I, and the mums both looked stunning with their make up done. We all had lots of compliments throughout the day!
Thanks again, you are fab!!
Lots of love,

Hi Julie a huge thank you for all that you did for me on Saturday. I can't believe how sweet you were and thank you for getting my mum to the Church!

I am so sorry for how long it has taken me to get round to this! Since the wedding it has been non stop!
I want to say an enormous thank you for providing hair and make up on the wedding day. I felt so relaxed knowing I didn't have to worry about trying to do it myself and I felt like a million dollars walking down the aisle. Both the hair style and my make up lasted all day - I didn't have to do anything which was amazing! My three bridesmaids all looked perfect and they were so happy with their hair and make up looks. My Mum was also thrilled and we all can't thank you enough
I have attached some photos for you - feel free to use them as you wish! They will come in separate emails I'm afraid due to hotmail not being able to handle the size of them!!!
An enormous thank you again,
PS. A huge congratulations on your shop! I can't wait to come and visit next time I'm in the area and indulge in some pampering!
Hope your well, just wanted to say a quick thank you for all you help on the 4th, it was great to feel so relaxed and supported.
Thought you might like to see one of the pictures the photographer took if the bridesmaids hair, it all looked beautiful and I was sorry to take it out at the end of the night!

“In my opinion Julie was outstanding, totally professional and skilled in her work. The finished product was awsome and made me feel like a princess on my wedding day. I cannot thank Julie enough for making my day a wonderful occasion and making my bridesmaids and daughters feel so special.”
“She was very very quick to reply to my original enquiry.We set up a meeting to meet during a wedding fair,booked straight away a hair and make up trial. she is very friendly and we tried a lot of slightly different hair style.she is very knowledgeable about make up and what was going to suit me best”

On the day she put me and my bridesmaids at ease and made getting ready for the day special. The laughs we shared will stay with me forever. I was so pleased with the look she created.”
“Julie has an excellent vision of what will work with your hair, and is also honest if she thinks what you have chosen will not work and will show you what will and won't work.”
“Jules is very professional and helped me feel relaxed and excited on my wedding day. At the trial, Jules listened carefully to my ideas and created exactly what I wanted and more. She arrived early on the day and stayed until I was in my dress and ready to go. I would highly recommend her!”
“Jules was a fantastic make-up artist and also made me feel at ease on the morning of the Wedding with her fabulous personality. Myself, 2 of my Bridesmaids and my Mum had our make up done and we were all so pleased with the quality and result - Jules interpreted exactly what we wanted!”
“Although I only met Julie once before my big day, we hit it off straight away. On the day, we laughed constantly and Julie put me completely at ease (I was concerned as I don't usually wear any makeup at all) and felt and looked a million dollars for the whole day, thanks Julie x”
“Julie was very friendly and offered a really personal service. Julie was really accommodating during the trials (I had to have two!). On the day of the wedding Julie arrived in plenty of time. I really loved my hair and make-up. Julie made me feel special whilst I still felt I looked like myself.”
“Julie and her team were punctual, attentive, sensitive, encouraging and calm. Everything that is needed on the day of your wedding. Julie made sure she had everything exactly as I wanted it and took time to understand my vision. Her communication throughout the whole process was excellent and at times I was at ease. An excellent experience and I loved the hair and make up.”

“Julie was fantastic from start to finish, I had a trial at her house for hair and make up, where we went through everything. On my wedding day she was punctual and despite not being well did an amazing job at 7am as I had an early wedding and then came back at 1700 to do my evening look.”
“From the moment I met Jules at my trial, she came across professional and knowledgeable and I knew I had made the right choice in choosing Jules.On the morning of the wedding, Jules and her assistant arrived promptly, set up swiftly Jules played a very important part of my day and our hair and make up was absolutely stunning. She made me look like the bride I wanted to be.I cannot thank Jules enough for playing a very important part of my day and I will have no hesitation in recommending Jules”

“I booked Jules 12 months ahead of our special day as I wanted to make sure I had the right person for the job, and Jules did an amazing job for us. She is professional with a wealth of knowledge of products, colours and styles. From initial discussions with Jules and from the trials she understood what i wanted to achieve and I trusted her guidance. She did a great job and I was thoroughly pleased with the results. As were my mum sister and niece.”
“Jules amazingly agreed to do my makeup with only 4 weeks notice. She managed to fit a trial in for me too. Jules also agree to do purely my makeup as I didn't have any bridesmaids. Everyone else would only do it if there was a minimum of 3 of us. Jules went above and beyond & worked through the pain”
“Jules rescued me from a near wedding day makeup disaster. After trialling several local providers, none were able to give me what I wanted. I'm met Jules at a wedding fare, only 2 weeks before the wedding, she shuffled her diary to fit me in last minute, and the result was amazing.”
“Not only did Julie do an amazing job but she was lovely! Having her there on the morning of my wedding was calming and she really looked after me. Really would recommend her very very highly.”
Why They Booked (in random order)
“She had done hair and make up for my Wedding and I was so impressed by her whole approach and the outcomes, I booked her immediately for my Wedding Blessing two months later! I wanted her to work her magic on me again!”

“As i knew she would achieve exactly the look i wanted”
“Local to venue, good price”
“She has a brilliant personality and is hilarious to be with which is so helpful when you are feeling nervous and stressed on the big day. She made the morning go like a dream and carefully works out timings allowing extra time for any delays during the day.”
“Recommended by a work colleague of my husband and her website and our initial meeting left me in no doubt she was the right person.”
“From day one Jules was my only voice of reason, she made me feel calm and fluster free whenever I spoke with her, it was like I'd known her for years..., a truly amazing and talented lady. She was the only calm around me leading up to and including my day. My bridesmaid (a difficult 16 yr old) was so upset that she had a blemish appear, Jules alleviated all her worries and the result was amazing, she looked stunning. Ultimately Jules in my view is the only choice any bride should make, in fact she's not a choice at all, she's an absolute MUST!!!!”

I didn't hesitate with booking her.”
“Because I knew after meeting her that I could rely on her. She was in agony with her back and still managed to arrive early, having had to get someone else to drive her to me, and someone to carry her bags. She went above and beyond what some people would do.”
“Jules is very easy to get on well with, you feel like she knows you straight away,”
“Julie was highly recommended by the hotel venue and I was not disappointed.”
I just wanted to say thank you very much to you and Sophie for all your hard work on my Wedding Day on 1st November 2014.
I know you worked very hard to make sure that me, my Mum and my Chief Bridesmaid were ready on time. You made the occasion stress-free and fun, and overall it was a good experience. I know you also helped with the younger bridesmaids with last minute adjustments which was much appreciated.
I would have no hesitation in recommending you.

"From the moment I met Jules at my trial, she came across professional and knowledgeable and I knew I had made the right choice in choosing Jules to do my hair and make up for the wedding.
On the morning of the wedding, Jules and her assistant arrived promptly, set up swiftly and were ready to go, working on my bridesmaids first and then me. They all helped by keeping my nerves at bay and all remaining calm but also having a few laughs along the way.
Jules did not finish at my hair and make up but also helped to get me into my dress which was not the easiest of gowns to get into.
Jules played a very important part of my day and our hair and make up was absolutely stunning. She made me look like the bride I wanted to be.
I cannot thank Jules enough for playing a very important part of my day and I will have no hesitation in recommending Jules to other brides to be. "

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for doing my hair and make up on Saturday (and for doing all the bridesmaids too). I really enjoyed the process of having it done as you put me at ease and I was really pleased with the finished effect. I know that all the bridesmaids really liked their hair/makeup too. It was really nice to meet you.
All best wishes,
22 March 2014
You are an incredibly talented lady and I can't thank you enough for all your efforts. My husband thanks you for making me a beauty! The girls looked incredible too. You three girlies make a fantastic team and I couldn't have asked for anything more. Our day was truly perfect.
I will be recommending you to everyone :)
Thank you so much again,
Mrs Griffiths :) xxx
After doing lots of research I asked Julie to do my hair and make-up for my wedding in December 2013. I was impressed by the professional look of her website, her previous experience and competitive price. Upon contacting Julie by email, she phoned me straight away and we chatted for a while about what sort of look I wanted and some ideas. She was very friendly and offered a really personal service.
Both myself and my bridesmaid had an initial trial which went great. I was really indecisive about the hairstyle I wanted (I couldn’t decide between an up v a down do!) so I spoke to Julie about it and she was brilliant. She invited me back for another trial and really wanted to make sure I was happy and felt comfortable with what I chose.
On the day of the wedding Julie arrived in plenty of time, allowing the morning to be as relaxed and stress free as possible! The atmosphere was really chatty and fun, which I believe I have Julie to thank for (and my sister, for being incapable of making a cup of coffee!).
Everything went smoothly and I really loved my hair and make-up, Julie made me feel special whilst I still felt I looked like myself. I got lots of compliments from my guests. My bridesmaid and sister-in-law were also really pleased with their hair/ make-up and commented on how nice Julie was. I would highly recommend Julie to others – thanks for doing such an amazing job!!

Julie work's quick and efficiently whilst keeping the highest of standards and all this seems to come to her effortlessly, this alone is testimony in itself to the passion and flare she has to make her customers look and feel truly beautiful
I would highly recommend Julie for any special occasion or event and know that she is delivering the full package that any girl could wish for.
Thank you again Julie for using your magic wands and making me look and feel a million dollars. Jolene. Xxx
Julie has such an infectious personality, she made me feel very much at ease during the trial and on the Day itself. I had no opportunity to get really nervous as I felt so happy, relaxed and confident as I got ready and Julie created this atmosphere with her warmth, humour and hard work. She even helped with the lacing of my dress as my bridesmaids were struggling!
I wore a veil on the day and although I planned to remove it in the evening, my friends didn't want to risk removing it and upsetting hair style so I decided to leave it in. As a result I was a little regretful that all the detail in my hair was not fully on show, so I have asked Julie if she can come and do the same for me when we have our Church Blessing in a couple of months time. I'm very much looking forward to this and having Julie back to work her magic on me!
I would recommend Julie to any brides to be out there looking for a highly skilled hair and make up artist who genuinely cares about you and your day, and very reasonable prices.

Julie was really great - very professional but also very friendly at the same time - helping to keep me relaxed the closer it got to the wedding!
Julie took a lot of time at the trial session to help find the perfect look for my wedding and then did a brilliant job on the big day - managing to do my hair and make-up as well as my two bridesmaids perfectly!!
I can thoroughly recommend Julie to all future brides - thank you for all your hard work!!"
I just want to tell you that I had a fantastic weekend doing ART. I am still thinking about it and will be for a long time to come. Oli and all of the team were fantastic - welcoming, professional and fun. I haven't done a job for ages when I have learned and laughed so much. Lisa and Julie were also top notch with the make up. It really was an absolute pleasure to be a part of it.
Thank you for having me and I am looking forward to the auction next weekend.
Thanks again- you did a brilliant job :)

I would like to thank you so so much for doing my wedding hair for me and my bridesmaids...every one of us didn't have anything to complain about. The communication was excellent and without a doubt it was the best experience I have ever had. I felt like a princess on my wedding day and recieved nothing but compliments from my guests the whole day as the transformation was unbelievable and no matter what photo was taken I looked stunning. I couldnt have been happier with the end result my hair was amazing and my make up was flawless and didnt need touching up once all day!
I have already recommended you to a number of people and would definitely use your service again and again...you were patient, kind and so easy to get on with and made everyone just dazzle around you, I really cannot thank you enough
you truly are a star

On the day of the wedding she provided such a calming atmosphere and it immediately made me feel relaxed. My make up looked flawless and without looking or feeling too done up, my skin was glowing. Best of all my make up stayed put all day, through tears, laughter and lots of dancing.
Julie made me feel very special and my mum was delighted with her make up also and loved being pampered by Julie. I received so many lovely compliments about my make up on the day, which made me so happy.
I can not thank Julie enough for the care and attention she gave to my and my mum's make up and to the service that she provided for hair for two of the bridesmaids. I will not hesitate to recommend her to friends and family.
