wedding Industry Awards - Thank you to everyone for voting xxx. Here's a few of the lovely comments that got me to the finals...
Nicola really understood exactly what I was after and truly listened. She succeeded in making me feel beautiful without being too 'made up'. I wanted to feel like me on my wedding day and not like I was trying to be something I'm not. I felt incredible and will be forever thankful to Nicola for making me feel so beautiful.
I wanted a stylist that could master my hair and makeup as an overall look and I hit the jackpot with Nicola. She is professional and a perfectionist. She is also incredibly friendly and she herself has a great sense of style.
Nicola is first class. She is an absolute pleasure to be around and was incredible at listening to my ideas and recreating them on my wedding day.
Nicola listened to what I wanted and delivered it perfectly. I have never felt so beautiful. Her communication was great and she wasn't flustered at all when I decided to completely change my hair styling just weeks before the wedding. I would highly recommend her.
Nicola is clearly very knowledgeable and very professional in her approach.
Nicola did a perfect job giving me the look I wanted for my wedding. We had an extensive trial that was fun. On the wedding day itself she arrived on time and was very calm and relaxed.
Nicola was an absolute joy. She managed to make this exhausted bride look better than human.
I really appreciated the flexibility in Nicola's approach which is hard to come by.
She was lovely on the phone and could not have been more helpful during the planning process. She was a pleasure to be around on the day, totally calm and unflappable.
Nicola was extremely patient taking the time to discuss and practice different styles as well as looking for pinterest images outside of my trial appointment. She was professional throughout but was always very down to earth and amicable. On my wedding day she was extremely focussed whilst allowing for flexibility for me to enjoy the morning with my family and friends.
Her communication was excellent, especially in view of the fact that I was organising a wedding from South Africa.
