“Arabella was fantastic to work with from the very first contact. I asked for an initial trial six months before the wedding because I was concerned about finding the right person for the job: I was quite particular about how I wanted to look on my wedding day – unlike a lot of brides I wanted to look ‘done up’, I wanted my skin to be super-matte despite its oily tendencies and I wanted my hair to be voluminous and curly despite being poker straight. My sister’s requirements weren’t much easier… but Arabella was up for the challenge and I can honestly say, that girl can work miracles! She’s a real professional and she knows her stuff, not only did she come up with beautiful looks for the day for us both but she recommended products for us that we still use now. I felt really relaxed with Arabella on the morning of the wedding, as we listened to cheesy music while she did our hair and makeup it felt like hanging out with a friend getting ready for a night out – it was one of my favourite bits of the day! ”
