Happy Brides

Here is one of the most cherished parts of my job, the feedback.

It makes me feel all warm and squishy to hear how happy I have made you and not to mention beautiful!

Don’t take my word for it, read my brides’ thoughts below…

Alexis was completely brilliant and understood exactly what I wanted for the day. She was amazingly patient at the trial even though I am exceptionally indecisive, and it was a real pleasure having her there on the morning of the wedding. On the day my hair was exactly what I had wanted and was something that I could never have done myself so it was really special. Alexis was so relaxed on the day and it was brilliant not to have to worry about my hair or makeup on the day and leave it all up to her!

Thank you so so much x x x


Classic Bridal Hair and Make Up - Alexis Anstey

Thank you so so much for the beautiful hair and makeup you did for my wedding day, and for your patience and calmness and just utter brilliance on the day (remember the mad rescue for my perfume!) I felt like a film star all day long and didn’t have to adjust a thing with my make up apart from touch up my lipstick (the colour I have completely fallen in love with, and it got a lot of compliments on the day!) I would recommend you highly to anyone I know getting married, and if I ever have another ‘do’ to go to, would love for you to do my hair and makeup again.

Jeremy absolutely loved it too and here is a message from him: “Hi Alexis Just wanted to say thank you for the hair and makeup job you did. I was so worried that when I first saw Debbie I wouldn’t recognise her beneath heavy wedding make up – but she looked stunning, totally taking my breath away, and more importantly – looked like herself.

Alexis did my hair and make-up for my wedding in the south of France.

She’s so personable and down to earth that I got on with her straight away and knew she was the right person for the job. She spent time trialing out the looks I wanted before the big day and most importantly, she kept me calm and grounded on the morning of the wedding when my nerves kicked in. Everything on the day was seamless and my make up lasted till 3am! 

Alexis is the perfect mix of laid back but efficient and she fitted right in with my family and friends when we were abroad. I can’t recommend her enough – meet her and see!

I would absolutely recommend Alexis to any bride to be, especially if you are having a wedding abroad. My trial hair and makeup were perfect first time, and I couldn’t have asked for a better way to start my wedding weekend in France. Alexis was calm, efficient but fun and relaxed too, and we all loved our hair and makeup. Thank you again for agreeing to come out with us, an unforgettable experience.

Thank you especially Alexis for my hair and make-up, I was really pleased with it and the bridesmaids looked great too. You are very talented and you really made the preparations fun, helping me to feel more calm and at ease too. The morning was a special part of the whole day. Thank you

I just wanted to write and say thank you for all your help on the day. I was soooo pleased with my hair and make-up – loads of people commented on the hair, saying that it was lovely because it looked so natural and how I would normally wear it (only far better styled and not as frizzy as it would normally be!). The hair survived the entire day, including the rather manic dancing late in the evening! The make-up was fantastic – although I was wearing more make-up than normal, it looked very natural and also lasted the evening. And thank you for also doing my mum’s hair and make-up on the day. She was a little nervous because she hadn’t had a trial, but was extremely happy with the results and lots of our guests commented on how good she looked. I have already recommended you to some friends and will continue to do so.

Thank you so much for doing my hair and make-up so beautifully on my wedding day. It was a privilege to be with you at such an exciting, emotional and overwhelming time. You effortlessly made me feel at ease and more so you were great fun to be with. Nick said I look phenomenal (cool!) and mum and Holly both felt I looked amazing. I really enjoyed meeting you and working with you and this card comes with a heartfelt thanks.

Thanks for all your hard work – you were amazingly calm and strong, which made all the difference to me! As you can see, we had an amazing day- everyone commented on my hair and how it was the perfect style for my face/head shape. The bridesmaid and Charlotte also looked amazing- and they were very grateful. Thanks again!

I just wanted to say thank you. You were a complete star, despite all the last minute demands of your difficult clients! I was so pleased with the results, not just for me but for mum and the girls too. What a marvelous job you did.

I just wanted to email and say THANK YOU SO MUCH for doing my hair and make up for the wedding. I loved, loved, LOVED what you did and I felt so beautiful all day. I also lost count of the people that commented on my hair and said how much they liked it. You made me, mum and the girls feel so relaxed while we were all getting ready and it felt like having a close friend there doing our make-up rather than a stranger. In fact I’m going to miss coming to see you for trials! Hopefully our paths will cross again in the future. I’ll be recommending you to everyone I know!

I was soo pleased with the great job you did for me and for all of us and would have loved to give you a big thank you hug. The hair and make up stayed a treat until 2am when we left the bar at Claridge’s for some steak sandwiches in room service! Cheers again Alexis. I was really pleased with your service and would highly recommend you to my friends.

Alexis, I’ve had the privilege of working with you for both of my weddings  this year (to the same man I hasten to add!) and after having gone through the journey with you I have nothing but positive feedback to give. Not only did you work your magic for the Indian Ceremony in July but you made me look and feel like a Princess on my big “white wedding” day in December. My hair and makeup on both occasions was so different and yet in their own way, complimentary of the “look” I was trying to achieve for each. My hair and makeup lasted for the whole day and night (despite all of the hugs, kisses and dancing). You made my bridesmaids and I glow with confidence on my big day and I will never forget that.
Thank you, with love, Mrs Sen

I would not hesitate to recommend Alexis. Right from the moment I met her her laid back nature and great sense of humour put me totally at ease. It was a pleasure to get to see Alexis work wonders during my cuts, colours and wedding hair trials in the lead up to my big day. Her patience, skill and creativity are second to none. She was amazing on the wedding day itself, very calm and focussed but also her usual friendly self. Both myself and my bridesmaids were totally thrilled with the results. You can trust you will be in good hands with Alexis, she is an absolute gem!”

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for being so wonderful on the morning of my wedding, you were brilliant and added  massively to the fun of getting ready. I couldn’t have done it without you!   My Mum was thrilled with her makeup, as you know she was very nervous about it as has never had her make up done professionally before but you made her feel special and beautiful which was fantastic.    Knowing that you were there, all cool, calm and collected, on hand to make us all beautiful was very comforting and put us all at ease.
