Margaret was amazing! I was interested in meeting her because of her positive reviews and beautiful portfolio. When I met her for a consultation, I knew right away that I had to book her! Margaret is friendly, kind, reassuring, and above all, really does great work in making you feel beautiful, confident, and comfortable in your own skin.Sent on 02/10/2016
On my wedding day, Margaret arrived on time and was full of positive and calming energy - just what I needed the morning of! She did hair for my 2 bridesmaids and hair and makeup for myself. I have to say that I have never felt more beautiful than that day. My hair and makeup lasted all day too - I didn't have to touch up once! And I teared up during the first look and ceremony!
I am so glad that I chose Margaret. I would highly, highly recommend her.

Margaret’s work is amazing. She is so sweet and I loved how she listens to what you hair and makeup ideas and vision is and she captures exactly( and 100 times better) than what you have ever imagined. I did my hair and makeup trial for my engagement party and was so impressed with her work that I immediately booked with her. On the day of the wedding she made everyone feel so relaxed and we all knew we were in good hands. Everyone at the wedding commented on my hair and makeup and how they like it and I could not have been possibly happier with her work. I recommend her to all brides.Sent on 24/08/2016

Margaret was amazing on my big day - she started make up for myself, my 3 bridesmaids, my mother, and my sister at 5:30 am. She is truly a make-up artist who knows how to accentuate and highlight the best features of one's face. My make-up stayed on perfectly with only a need to touch up the lipstick/gloss (she gave me a little travel sized portion of the lip products used to carry with me) despite tears throughout the ceremony, summer heat, eating, dancing, until the party ended at 1:00 am. Margaret also did the make-up for my engagement shoot prior to the wedding. Thanks to her, I look flawless and beautiful in my wedding photographs as did my family and bridesmaids :)Sent on 20/06/2012
Amazing! I didn't want to be caked in make-up, and Margaret made me look natural, while also making me look stunning. Our wedding was on Christmas Day, but Margaret was there and ready. Amazing! Worth every single penny I spent. Here is the price list of of Margaret's website:Sent on 03/01/2016

Margaret is an amazing artist and person. From our initial meeting, I knew that we would work well together. She is organized, patient, and just has this positive energy radiating from her, which, on your wedding day, trust me, you want to have around. She was the first person that I saw on my wedding day bright and early at 630am, and her presence and calming demeanor really set the tone for the day. I got so many compliments on my hair and makeup and I felt like a million bucks. You are in absolutely fantastic, capable hands if you hire Margaret for your big day. Thank you!Sent on 01/04/2015
