I just want to thank you so very much for the amazing work both you and Amanda did on me and the bridesmaids.  I thought we all looked fabulous on the day!  You and Amanda were so efficient on the day and slipped away so discretely.  I don’t think I thanked you or said goodbye properly on the day!  I also wanted to say that I was super pleased with the whole experience with you, form the trial (which was really enjoyable) to the actual day itself.  I’d definitely be recommending Elle Au Naturel in future.  Thanks once again and all the best, Amanda.

Amanda - 20th June 2016

I just wanted to drop you a line (very belated, apologies!) to say a HUGE thank you for all your work and your calming presence on my wedding day!  I was so delighted with both my hair and make up 🙂 I felt beautiful and that’s what every bride wants, but more than that you were so kind, calm and lovely that morning, I was really pleased to share that time with you.I didn’t realise until it was too late that you’d just quietly slipped away, and when o realised you’d gone once I’d said bye to my bridesmaids I thought how lucky I was to have a real life fairy godmother who just came, made me look and feel so great and then quietly went on your way 🙂 I will never forget walking down those stairs and seeing you in the dining room doorway, smiling 🙂  Thank you so so much, I am so grateful for your work and your presence.

glamorous wedding makeup and hair extensions

I can’t thank Antonia enough for the gorgeous work that she did on me and my bridesmaids on my wedding day. She kept me calm, was extremely professional and helpful and made me look like a princess. I received so many compliments about my hair and make-up, as did my bridesmaids. The hair extensions were incredibly natural-looking and no one could even tell that they weren’t my real hair. All in all, I am so lucky to have chosen Antonia for such an important day of my life. I’m so fussy about my hair and make-up I thought it would be a real challenge to find someone who could achieve the right results. From the trials to the wedding day itself she exceeded my expectations by a long way – I can safely say that I will be recommending her for years to come to any brides-to-be. Congratulations Antonia, you deserve every success! Alba x

Antonia created beautiful hair and makeup for me, my bridesmaids and mothers of the bride and groom, and she also created such a lovely calm atmosphere that my wedding morning was a special event in its own right. Thank you!!

Just got back from honeymoon and just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did for the wedding! We were all over the moon with our hair and makeup and all got so many compliments. I absolutely loved mine, and it all stayed in place despite the rain and despite getting very sweaty on the dance floor. It was the best day of my life and everyone was so fantastic in making it so special so thank you so much!!!

Caroline - 3rd September 2016

I cannot praise enough Antonia’s work – she was so patient and understanding from the date of the trial until the wedding day. She followed and listened carefully every detail I had and did an excellent job ? She is a delight to work with… has an easy-friendly and calming personality which is important to have in one of the most important days of ones’ life.

Blerta - 11th May 2015

From the moment we were in contact I knew I was only going to get the best from Antonia and having met her and seen her work at my trial, I knew she wouldn’t settle for anything less anyway! Nothing was ever too much trouble and she was incredibly accommodating which goes a long way when you are a bride trying to multi-task. On the day, Antonia took control in such a way that made me feel I could completely relax and everything was left in her capable hands, I can honestly say I didn’t feel stressed once! I was also bowled over by how many people commented on the hair and make-up during the day, not just to me, but to my mum and the bridesmaids – they all looked absolutely stunning. I have to say, I felt a million dollars and everything came together so well, the hair, veil, make-up, hair piece – I’ve never been happier. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second in recommending Antonia to anyone, she is a true professional. I am so grateful to her for all her support and contribution to making the wedding day the best day of my life.

Stephanie - 22nd August 2015

I cannot recommend Elle au Naturel highly enough; Antonia is a true professional and extremely talented at what she does. From my first enquiry she was efficient and put me totally at ease so I had every confidence placing my trust in her for the big day. She understood exactly what I wanted and was absolutely brilliant from my first make up trial, to fitting hair extensions and was a very calming influence on the morning of our wedding. My mum and adult bridesmaids were also extremely happy with her work and they are a discerning group! I received many compliments specifically on our hair and make up and it lasted so well. Brilliant service.

Vanessa - 12th September 2015

I don’t know where to start! Not only did Antonia help me through some stress breakouts and giving me some advice but she made me and my girlies feel absolutely stunning on my wedding day! I’ve never felt so confident! Thank you so so much!

Rebecca - 27th August 2017

Thank you so much for all your help and advice pre-wedding and for the wonderful hair and makeup on the day.  I had so many comments on how natural my makeup looked, which was exactly what i wanted and why I chose you, as you understood this completely.  The bridesmaids and mothers looked gorgeous too.

Catherine - 17th July 2017

Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day so perfect (and stress free). You and your assistant did such a fantastic job of mine, Mum’s and the bridesmaid’s hair and makeup.  I felt truely stunning on the day and the girls and Mum also looked absolutely gorgeous!  You really helped us to relax and enjoy the morning of the wedding so thank you for those special memories.

Vicky - 5th August 2017

Thank you so much for doing my mum’s, bridesmaid’s and my hair and makeup.  Everyone was thrilled with how things turned out.  We got so many compliments.  Thank you also for dealing with my indecisiveness and nerves on the day.  You are ever the professional! Thank you.

Annabelle - 1st July 2017

Apologies that is has taken me so long to send this card but I wanted to write to thank you properly for the stunning job that you did with the hair and makeup for myself, my mum and my bridesmaids at my wedding in July.  I have never felt so glamorous or confident before and a huge part of that was down to you and Cherie.  Thank you for all your help and advice along the way with the hair extensions – it all looked perfect on the day and the wedding was all I had hoped for.

Lucy - 24th July 2016

I cannot speak more highly of Antonia’s work. She is hugely talented, not just with the effortless hair and makeup looks she creates, she is 100% professional, reliable and calm and confident – everything a bride and entourage needs to feel tip-top on their wedding day. Worth every penny.

Before we are on another continent, I just wanted to say a quick thank you for all your amazing work!! I’m not good at compliments but I got so so so many and my bridesmaids and mum looked absolutely stunning. You made the whole morning so relaxed and we all really enjoyed it. I know that my Mum was very nervous about having her hair and make up done and you did such a fantastic job that I know she felt her very best all day. I will be thoroughly recommending you to all my friends that get married in the future (we are one of the first!). I hope your afternoon wedding went well and you got some time to relax over the weekend. Please also pass my thanks onto Cherie.

I can’t thank you enough!

Rachel - 29th July 2017

Antonia and her assistant Fran, came to the venue to get my bridal party and me ready on the big day and they were just amazing all morning long! They arrived exactly on time, and were perfectly organized and calm. It was such a lovely morning I couldn’t have asked for a better team to look after our beauty needs on the day!!

Additionally, as an overseas bride, Antonia was able to fit in a trial around my travel schedule and was brilliant with communication via email. I truly couldn’t have found a better professional for the day and can’t recommend her enough!! I promise you won’t regret booking with Elle Au Naturel!

Antonia, thank you so much for everything; you were a dream to work with!!

Jennifer - 10th June 2017

I contacted Antonia in a panic a couple of months before my wedding after another make-up artist had pulled out. I will never forget how Antonia calmed me down on the phone, confirmed she could do my wedding and got me in for a trial quickly.

I knew once I got to her house and had the trial that I was so lucky to have found her. Her work is exquisite and a cut above. She made me look like the best version of me.

On the day Antonia and her colleague Fran worked on me, four bridesmaids and even fit in my mum. Antonia kept us all on track and we were done with time to spare. The make up and hair was beyond my imagination.

My husband told me at the alter that he couldn’t believe how good I looked and the bridesmaids were complimented so many times throughout the day.

Thank you Antonia – you are truly fabulous.

A proper note of gratitude is long overdue! I cannot thank you enough for being such a joy to work with from our very first virtual meeting. You are talented, professional and no nonsense, which I really appreciated as I planned our wedding from afar.

Thank you for assembling such a stellar team and for coming out to Clevedon Hall on such a hot day to take care of me and my dearest girls. It was so peaceful and relaxing working with each of you the morning of our wedding and the results were truly perfection. Everyone looked beautiful and natural and most importantly loved their looks.

Looking at all of the photos from that day brings us such joy. Thank you fo being an essential part of our wedding. I am so grateful for all of the time you put into making all of us look our best. It was a pleasure working with you and I wish you all the best. Elena

Elena - 7th July 2018

I can’t thank you enough for helping to make me look like the best version of myself on my wedding day. I love how natural my makeup was and my hair was perfect and stayed put all day, even through some fairly vigorous dancing!! You were such a calm and relaxed person to have around on the day, which was very much needed! Love always Becky. xxx

Becky - 1st September 2018

Thank you so much for doing mine and Harriet’s hair and makeup. We had so many comments about how we looked which was mostly down to your skill. You were a very calming influence that morning and Harriet had so much fun discussing makeup with you! I will be recommending your services! Claudia and Andrew

Thank you so, so much for doing my hair and makeup on the 2nd June. Not only did you make me and my bridesmaids look beautiful but you were a delight to have around on a very special and personal morning. I LOVED my makeup and I’ve never felt more beautiful and my hair with the extensions was everything I had dreamed of. Most definitely worth the money. I know my bridesmaids were really happy also and my sister won’t stop talking about the makeup brand you used! You did an amazing job, thank you. I’ll be sure to pass your name on to future brides. Lots of Love Philippa x
