Hi,

I just wanted to say thank you for your work last month at our wedding it was brilliant.

The bridesmaid and flower girl hairs were beautiful and I was amazed as they stayed in place all day even the flower girls which is impressive given that five years can get messy hair in minutes! But hours later and it was still perfect.

And thank you for the hair and makeup you did for me it was very glamorous and traditional and the right choice to go with as I know it's something in twenty years I won't be cringing looking at photos regretting. It was very elegant so thank you and my husband liked it very much too.

I've included some photos just so you can see how well it held up throughout the day.

Thanks again,

Vicky Jones

Hi Jules,

I finally have a video to share with you of our wedding day (still photographs are still on their way!) and I wanted to send it through and to thank you for all your help on the day for me, my bridesmaids and my mum! Everyone was so happy with how beautiful they looked, but felt relaxed as well which was so important. Hopefully that shows in the video!!

I have been thinking about the best way to write this review that is truly going to give Jules the credit that she deserves!

This lady is a sheer genius, with talent and time planning. She managed to do 4 bridesmaids, a mother of the bride's hair and the hair and make up of the bride, all within 4 hours to an epic standard. I have never felt so beautiful in my entire life and everyone in my wedding party complimented my style which Jules took and ran with.

Jules, you are a beautiful and reassuring woman, exactly what a bride needs on her big day, I would recommend highly, beyond highly! So so glad I found you! It made the day to have such an expert on board!

"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.

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.. "

From the first email asking for a quote to the last moments attaching my veil before going to the church, Jules was professional, warm and incredibly friendly. I always felt that I was in expert hands and never needed to worry about anything. My hair and make up trial was so much fun and Jules listened to all my ideas and took them on board. On the wedding day Jules arrived bright and early and got straight on with my mum's hair. She put everyone at ease and made sure we were all happy with what we were having for our hair. My bridesmaids all had a hair style individual to their personalities and style. They looked absolutely stunning and felt relaxed with Jules at the helm. My hair and makeup were the last things to be done and we chatted the whole way through about what was best and how I felt about certain things. It was so relaxing and my make up really complimented my natural features so I just looked like an extra special version of me! I couldn't be more grateful for everything she did and I was heartily recommend her services and her friendship.

Hi

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

Hi Julie,

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!!

Take care

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.

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"

Hi Julie,

I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you so much for being part of our special day. The mum's, bridesmaids and flower girls looked beautiful and you made them look and feel a million dollars.

Your cheerful, fun, professional and relaxed style put everyone at ease. My mum loved you and spoke so highly of you. :)

I'll send you some photos when I receive them.

Good luck with the shop and thank you again.

Hi Julie

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.

You did an amazing job Jules thanks. Everyone commented on my hair and just like you said it stayed perfect all day.

I could only attach two pics so sending you a Wetransfer with the rest now. If you want more I can probably find though no probs. 

Thanks Jules

Hi Jules

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.  

Thanks again

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!

Hi Jules,

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. 

had lots of compliments throughout the day!

Thanks again, you are fab!!

Lots of love,

Katie

Hi Jules, 

So sorry for the delay in coming back to you, we have been in Greece on our honeymoon! 

Wow, you are amazing. Thank you so much for everything, I've tried to sum up a few words below that you are most welcome to use as a

testimonial. 

"It's rare to meet a make up artist and hairdresser who is not only enthused with creativity, talent and skill but is also a genuine and warming person. Jules was so professional and supportive: from the very first trial and throughout the wedding morning in which she beautifully carried out hair and make up for myself (the bride) my 3 bridesmaids and both mums. She not only listens to your needs, comes with an army and diverse range of excellent products but offers expert advice and her experience shines throughout. I've never felt so happy with my make up and hair and received so many lovely comments on just how amazing it was! I truly felt like a vintage princess for the day and had Jules to thank for it all. 100% recommended to all brides"

We are currently awaiting the photos but I will be sure to send them to you as soon as I get them. I've also highly recommending you and your shop to 2 of my close

friends who are getting married next year so hopefully they may get in touch. 

Huge thanks again, 

Krystal

Good evening Jules!

Firstly, please accept my apologies that it has taken this long to get back to you! Life has been pretty hectic after the wedding ... thank you cards still un-written and house moving boxes still un-packed!! But, we are getting there slowly.

I have attached some piccies for you :)

I just want to say a massive THANK YOU for your fabulous hair and make-up! You were just fabulous to have around on the morning of the wedding - despite it all being rather chaotic with parents and children flying about here, there and everywhere! I just loved my hair and makeup, which lasted the whole day & evening! Only a spot of lippy required, which as you know, is about the height of my makeup skills! You completely took the stress out of my day and truly gave me the confidence i needed 

I am so glad that i picked you and will definitely be recommending you to other brides in Oxfordshire.

Thank you again :)

ps: Lorna still references you in just about every make-up shop we go in to!!!

Dear Julie,

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,

Felicity xxx

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!

Hi Julie,

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for your amazing hair and make up work on my wedding day. My bridesmaids absolutely adored their vintage style hair, it was way better than any of us could possibly have imagined. I love that you put your own twist on it, we loved it! As for my hair, a total masterpiece! The fact that you managed to fix it up in a way that made it not feel heavy was just incredible. As someone with thick hair I can often get headaches with my hair in one place for too long, but it felt comfortable all night long. My make up felt light but I also felt well covered. The foundation survived a few tear trickles too. I would highly recommend you to any bride to be, as a fantastic hair and make up artist but also a really lovely person to have there on your wedding day.

Thank you thank you thank you. And please feel free to post this as a testimonial on your website!

“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.

“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 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”

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!!!!”
