“Poppy is just the best! From our first meeting to discuss my ideas, it was clear that I was in the hands of a professional. She helped me see why some ideas I had wouldn’t work out the way I imagined and then gave me lots of alternatives to chose from. What she came up with not only looked incredible in person, but (almost more importantly) photographed stunningly. She even worked with our photographer on the day to do some test shots and make adjustments as she was doing my makeup. On the day she was my calm during the storm, funny and relaxed and really just so much fun to have around while getting ready. It was so important to me to look like myself, but to look like the best, most glamorous, best-skinned and shiniest-eyed version of myself and Poppy totally exceeded my expectations.”

"Thank you so much Poppy for the beautiful & creative make up & hair you styled for my wedding day. It was truly to my taste & exactly as we discussed on our first consultation. 

I really appreciate that the make-up held up to a long hot ceremony, photo-shoot & into the evening, only needing a little gloss now & then after all the bubbles, kisses and tears. You are highly skilled in your profession & I appreciated your calming style amidst all the pre wedding nerves. I would recommend you to any bride to be & wish you every success."

"I was very nervous about finding a hair and makeup stylist to trust for my wedding day. I don't wear makeup in everyday life, and my wedding was far from traditional, so it was important to me that my make-up wasn't over the top and reflected who I am and the casual nature of our wedding day. Asking Poppy was one of the best decisions I made. We had a trial before the wedding, where Poppy made sure I had my hair and makeup exactly how I wanted it. She took her time and listened to my requests, and had a fun and easy going way about her. On the wedding day she arrived early and set up, easily getting everyone ready on time didn't seemed to phase her. She did the hair and makeup for me, my two bridesmaids and my flower girl. Everyone looked amazing!!! She was so helpful and personable, I couldn't have asked for anything more."

"Thank you so much Poppy for all your hard work and effort on my wedding day and for traveling such a long distance to help make it happen. I couldn't of wished to look any more beautiful on our special day. It was just perfect and you did a brilliant job."

''A good friend of mine recommended me to use Poppy for our bridal party makeup for our wedding day.  It turned out to be a such a fantastic decision! Poppy did a beautiful job and delivered exactly what I was looking for in my makeup.  I had a few ideas as to what I wanted for my look, and Poppy was able to interpret those ideas to deliver the look I desired for my big day.  Her cosmetics were lovely, and our makeup lasted until the end of the night.

She was able to come in to the salon, where our hair was being done, and work alongside the hair stylists, which was an awesome experience, and great time saver on the day. Poppy offered a relaxed and enjoyable, yet very professional service, and I would have no hesitation recommending her to any bridal party, or anyone seeking a makeup session for a special occasion.”

"I just wanted to say a big thank you to you Poppy for doing my makeup on my wedding day.

We all looked stunning and had many compliments on how natural and not over the top we looked! You were such a pleasure to work with and I will be recommending you. Thanks again

You made that happen and I cannot thank you enough. My makeup lasted until my last champagne was drunk at 3am! I am so lucky to have had you as my makeup artist and I will not stop recommending you to all my friends.”
