I found Elka on weddingwire and I am so happy about my decision to book with her. She responds immediately, has reasonable rates to accommodate all brides and is flexible. She was straight forward during the booking process which made me feel at ease and after meeting her for my trial I know I made the right decision in booking her. I feel confident and cannot wait for my wedding day knowing she'll be there to help me look and feel my best! I also can't wait for my bridal party to get the same experience I've had with her!Sent on 29/10/2019

Amazing and professional
got more than what I asked for. Elka was amazing and very professional. Make up was not caked on my face, and normally my face has always been caked. Hair was above and beyond what I asked for.Sent on 08/09/2020

Hire this lovely lady or you will wish you had!
I, of course, being who I am, booked everything last minute, including my makeup artist. But I’m really glad I did because everything worked out better than expected! Elka was AMAZING! When I called her to enquire about her services, I immediately appreciated her easygoing demeanor. She made me feel at ease, like this was something she did all the time (she does) and I instantly knew she was the perfect choice. On the big day she arrived on time (I was running late), highly prepared and relaxed. I had booked a separate hairstylist (a personal friend) so me and my two bridesmaids were were all alternating between makeup and hair. She got to work on my two bridesmaids makeup first and they were completed super fast. They were beautiful! Because I was late Elka did not have a lot of time to complete my makeup, so especially when you consider this she really did a fantastic job! The three of us all had beautiful (and NOT cake face clown🤡) makeup that lasted all day long (and far into a long evening!!!) We were all so impressed our makeup lasted looking fabulous in August!!! Thank you ELKA!!!!Sent on 04/09/2020

Lovely person, and stunning results
Elka was lovely to work with, and did an amazing job on my hair and makeup for my wedding. Everyone kept telling me how stunning I looked. Even my younger brother came over to tell me that my makeup looked amazing and made my blue eyes really pop. My hair was so gorgeously done– I thought it looked even better than the picture I sent to her from Pinterest! Thanks Elka for making my special day even more special 💛Sent on 18/08/2020

Elka is amazing, I can not imagine our wedding being anywhere near as perfect as it was without her. She was able to take a theme and some vague ideas combined with what she saw of our personalities and created stunning unique looks for myself and my bridesmaids. She is meticulous and efficient, completing hair and makeup for myself and my girls, doing my mother's hair and dealing with the three men in our bridal party. She even took on a couple of additional clients making sure we were all perfect in time for the ceremony. Her attention to detail and high standard of cleanliness throughout the day were exceptional. She truly was our knight in shining armor, helping above and beyond all expectations.Sent on 02/07/2020
Elka Makeup and Hair's reply:It was such a pleasure working with you gals ! You all looked stunning and was so happy that I was able to make your vision come to life !
