We are three generations who used Vanessa for wedding makeup. She was easily able to adjust the makeup to suit the grandmother, mother, and sister of the groom. She is very obliging and nothing was a problem. We were delighted with the result and would have no hesitation in using her again for our next big event.

Danielle, Lucy and Jackie

Vanessa did my hair and makeup for my wedding. She was very open to my requests all the way to the morning of the big day. On my wedding day, she did my hair and makeup exactly as I imagined it and I was very pleased with the look. She is very easygoing and comfortable to work with. I would recommend her to any of my friends.
