"I was 3 months pregnant on my wedding day and feeling disgusting with sickness and anaemia - I had given up hope of feeling beautiful… I don’t know how Caroline did it but she waved some kind of magic! I have wedding photos to treasure with my baby daughter that show her mummy looking incandescently beautiful and happy. How she took my whimsical ideas and carved a look for me and my bridesmaids that was uniformed but individual, I’ll never know! Exceptionally talented. Utterly invaluable.”

"Booking a make-up artist for my wedding was a very important decision to get right and I knew as soon as I had contacted Caroline from Amazing Face Dorset I was going to be in good hands! At my trial, Caroline made me feel relaxed and comfortable and really listened to what I did and didn't want from my wedding make up, as well as advising me on a skincare routine on the build up to the wedding. It was a lovely experience and I came away feeling relaxed and confident about my make up for the big day. On the wedding day itself, Caroline did the make up for me, my bridesmaids and both the Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom. Each of us have completely different complexions/skin tones and wanted to achieve different looks! Caroline was incredibly professional and really listened to all of the girls, talking through each stage - we all commented on how relaxed she made us feel! It is obvious that she is very talented, really knows her products well and it was great to see how passionate Caroline is about her job. I really enjoyed having Amazing Face there at the morning of the wedding, it was a lovely relaxed and friendly atmosphere, something that I really appreciated when the nerves were flying! Caroline gave us all skin care blotting paper and a lovely lipstick to top up throughout the day which was a lovely extra and greatly appreciated and I was also really pleased that all of our make up stayed looking fresh, despite it being warm - it barely needed touching up throughout the day. I was just amazed by the final result! It was much more than I could ever have imagined and we all felt fabulous! I can't recommend Amazing Face Dorset highly enough".

"I cannot believe that almost a week has gone by since my wedding! I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your services on the day, both my make up and hair were flawless and perfect...just what I wanted! Caroline your advice of 'football scores' will stay with me forever! When I arrived at Highcliffe those very words calmed me down, and to be honest as I walked in through the doors to the waiting guests, I've never felt so calm and in control! The first few steps I was hesitant and my gaze was on the floor, but all of a sudden, as my dad and I approached the turn in the aisle, I heard my dad say 'football scores, football scores'... Well at that I felt brave enough to raise my eyes and beam a smile at all my guests, and most importantly at my husband to be who was looking straight at me... it was perfect! I simply cannot thank you both enough, your experience and guidance is second to none! You made me feel beautiful like every bride should on their special day!"
