Happy people

My sister used Harriet for her wedding and I was blown away by how beautiful my sisters hair and makeup looked. Picking the makeup artist was easy when it came to my wedding and she didnt fail to impress me. I have never looked like I did on my wedding day and probably never will again, the hair and makeup was just outstanding and completely made my day. Harriet is a lovely genuine person and made me feel so at ease at the trial and on the day x

Such an amazing start to my big day. From the trial to big day Harriet made me so at ease and feel like a superstar. Her Hollywood light mirror, her great sense of humour and her excellent range of products just added to the best day of my life. Hubby really missed out as I’m sure his morning of the wedding was no where near as special as mine! Would recommend Harriet Steele to everyone getting married.

Harriet is unbelievably talented and an expert in her field. Not only did she do an amazing job on my hair and make up, but she made the morning so pleasurable and I wouldn’t have felt half as calm and confident had Harriet not been there. I knew she was good as she had previously done wedding hair and make up for my 2 older sisters, but she exceeded my expectations on the day. She also created a bespoke hair clip to match my look and dress, it’s a one off and something that I will cherish forever. She really is fabulous x .

Harriet is a true professional but puts you at total ease. She cannot do enough to help. She starts with gathering information about you and your event and puts in hours of preparation to get fantastic results on the day. She gives her time to discuss and try different ideas and suggestions and makes you feel really special. On my wedding morning I could not have managed without her. She was chatty, informative, organised and nothing was too much from ordering room service breakfast for me, jugs of iced water and ringing reception for a fan to keep me cool. She was fantastic and made me look amazing. The morning would not have been the same without her. She gave me lots of tips and by the time she had finished my nerves had gone and I was brimming with confidence and felt fantastic. She has also given me the confidence to try different things, which I would not have done before. Thank you for giving me my confidence back Harriett! She is a true gem and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone at all. She deserves to be truely thanked for her all her hard work, professionalism.

Harriet was amazing; extremely professional & personable, warm, friendly, calm, reassuring & completely in control. As well as been brilliant at her trade. The quality of service she offered was incredible both before, in the early planning stages, and on the wedding day itself. She went above and beyond the call of duty – we had a wardrobe crisis when Emily’s dress began to become un-stitched along the zip – moments before the wedding time- Harriet stepped in and did a fabulous repair she truly saved the day. Throughout this she remained calm & reassuring to Emily. So many guests commented on Emily’s hair style & make up – in fact she still looked just as good at 2am as she had in the beginning – her hair & make up still looked perfect! Harriet was lovely to work with and her talent is unbelievable she is very gifted at what she does the fact that she does hair, make up, millinery, and jewellery means her customers can have confidence in her ability to offer an all round service. I would not hesitate to recommend Harriet to anyone planning a wedding – in fact I have, lots of times since our special day !

Thank you so much for everything you did for me and my friends on the day and for helping me in to my wedding dress. I could not believe how fast the morning went but you had everything under control and we all felt relaxed. Everyone who knows me knows I am not a natural when it come to having my photo taken, I used to be the one taking them so I got out of been in them. You made me so confident with my make up and hair I was loving been in the spot light and asking people to take pictures which was very surprising to them. As I was walking down the aisle all I saw was Richard at the end and his face said it all when I got to him he told me I looked beautiful that’s all I had wanted to hear from him all morning. The only stressful part of planning the wedding was the fact I was the 1st to get married in my friendship group so I could not ask people for recommendations so when I booked you after reading through the recommendations on your website I had no idea what the result would be. I am so happy I found your page you made me feel relaxed and confident on the day of my trial, I knew that I would have nothing to worry about on the wedding day. All my friends have asked me to keep your details in a save place for when its there turn. Thank you for everything

Harriet did myself the Brides makeup, bridesmaids make up and my mothers make up.  She also did all of our hair.  She was very commited, efficient and flexible.   Harriet also made some hats for our wedding party and also jewellry, which were all very unique. Julie C

Harriet made the day perfect, feeling more like one of the family than someone helping us out.  Everybody complimented her and how we all looked.  I have never felt so glamorous.  Considering I completely changed my required hairstyle on the day, its unbelievable how easy Harriet adapts to just make it happen.  My chief bridesmaid also said she was amazed, having a short bob she was over the moon with her up-do being possible on the day and with no practice beforehand!  Having involved my mother-in-law and cousin to also have hair and make up at short notice a couple of days before, Harriet was perfect in accommodating them and giving them a great wedding experience.  Going completely above and beyond, having booked Harriet for the day, when the Toastmaster stood on my veil and ripped it out of my hair, Harriet spotted it whilst looking out of the window finishing a sandwich.  Having shouting if I needed help, she sacrificed lunch and came down to sort me out.  We had a great laugh that day!  I would highly recommend Harriet Steele for any make-up occasion but especially your wedding as she will ensure you have no problems on the day! Velda M

Harriet recently did the hair and make up for myself and my bridal party and is not only incredibly talented but professional, friendly and generous. From initial contact, through to my trial and the big day, Harriet was fantastic to work with and really “went the extra mile”, keeping me relaxed, and staying with me all morning until I left the room to get married. She is amazingly skilled; her work appears effortless but I have never looked or felt more beautiful. Thank You Harriet x

Natalie H

I Harriet was amazing on my wedding day. She did so much more than my hair and make up. She also rescued a flower situation, sorted my mum in laws hair, helped fix my contact lens and generally leant an atmosphere of calm to the morning. She made me look like a prettier version of me with flawless, natural make up. We had no time for a trial run but she listened and understood exactly what I wanted. Every wedding should have a Harriet!

Helen G

I just want to mail and thank you for everything.  You were absolutely amazing, I couldn’t have found anyone better to get me ready.  You really settled my nerves and made me look and feel so beautiful and I couldn’t possibly thank you enough. It was a pleasure having you around and I know my whole family really appreciates all your help. A lot of people were asking me about my hair and makeup on both days and I will be recommending you wholeheartedly.  And I have your contact details because no doubt I’ll be calling you for my sisters’ weddings. Thank you again! Dimple P

I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for your amazing hair styling and make-up for myself, bridesmaids and the mum’s on my wedding day. We all had so many compliments and I’ve seen lots of photos and my wedding video and I have to say I am so pleased with how flawless and fabulous we all looked, I am looking forward to seeing al the official photos now. Honestly everyone has been telling me how fab my make up and hair looked and the more I watch the video the more I love it.  You have a wonderful talent and I’ll definitely keep you in mind if we need make-up/hair for any other special events. Thanks again, I’ll definitely be recommending your services to anyone who asks! X Sonya

Harriet was fantastic right from the trial to all the “tips” on the wedding day. She was really professional and friendly and listened to exactly what we all wanted. I didn’t want heavy makeup, so she suggested the air brush foundation, which I knew nothing about, but it was perfect. It lasted all day but looked so natural. Harriet even provided small touch up samples for us to keep on the day, but like I say they weren’t required!  As soon as I met Harriet I knew she was the perfect person to do the makeup for my wedding party and didnt look at anybody else. Make up was the one thing I was worried about as I dont wear much, but I didnt have to worry as it was exactly what I wanted x

Natasha D

Harriet helped make a potentially stressful time -getting ready for the wedding – in to something really relaxing and enjoyable. She was so cool, calm, confident and capable that getting my hair and makeup done felt like a real treat. Harriet also made sure that I knew how to ‘top up’ my makeup if I needed to on the day and gave me everything I needed to do so. She really did think of everything! I looked perfect on the day and was so, so happy with the result. I have wholeheartedly recommended her to my friends who are getting married.

Kate S

Thank you so much for all you have done to help me, Lisa and Mum looked so great on my wedding day, you helped me to feel like a Princess (ha ha). Totally gorgeous. Thanks again. Leanne H

I’d just like to say a big thanks for making me look beautiful, stunning and pretty on my wedding day, all these words from my husband and guests. Anna B

Harriet and her colleague did the make up and hair for my sister-in-laws wedding. Having been married the year before and as a bridesmaid I was excited to enjoy getting my hair and make up done again. I can categorically say that despite being involved (as a bridesmaid and bride) at five different weddings in the past three years, I have not come across a company or individual that did more for the bride (and her bridesmaids) or was more friendly and welcoming than Harriet. To say she got the day off to a great start wouldn’t do it justice. Not only did she make me look beautiful as a bridesmaide with my hair and make up, she made my sister-in-law look and  feel beautiful as well, which, in my opinion, is priceless.

Lucy A

Harriet did mine and my bridesmaids hair and make up for the wedding and not only were we delighted by the results but she went the extra mile helping the group with dressing and final touches and even helped sew one of my bridesmaids into her dress when her zip broke! Excelent faultless  service.

Sarah G

Helpful, friendly, professional. Calmed me down & organised me on the morning of my wedding. goes above & beyond her call of duty. What can I say she’s a star!

Thank you for all your help on our wedding day. We had a fantastic day.  I loved my make-up, it stayed on all day and night. Thanks again. xxx Lisa & James

Thank you so much for making my wedding morning so special.  You made it a total pleasure and I was over the moon with the results.  If only I could afford you every day! The headdress is amazing and I will cherish it. Enjoy the cake! Alison

Harriet’s service was without doubt the single most invaluable contribution to our wedding. Her skills with a make-up brush are second to none but, more than that, she is so warm and friendly and her presence on the morning of my wedding was a hugeley calming one. SHE IS UTTERLY FABULOUS!!!

Kate L

Thank you for all your help & making me feel so fantastic on my wedding day! Katie & Paul

Thanks for all your help in getting me ready for my big day and the makeup tips throughout.  You have been fantastic every step of the way from trial to the day itself. Angie & Margaret (Mother of bride)

I hope this finds you well.  Thank you again for making me feel so beautiful on my wedding day – it was so much fun, and I will be sure to recommend you to any of my friends who tie the knot! Rhianna H

I just wanted to say a special thank you for all your help at my wedding, particularly in helping us all into our dresses! I’m so glad I decided to have my hair and makeup done professionally as I received so many compliments during the day and it really makes me look special in the photos. Heidi

I just wanted to say thank you for making me look so amazing on my wedding day.  I received so many compliments which were in no small part down to your skill with make-up and taming my mass of hair!  You managed to stay completely unruffled despite having a lot to get through on the day.  I would recommend you to anyone. Charlotte A

Just wanted to send you an ‘official’ thank you. Right from the trial you’ve been fantastic.  On the day you were really professional and made everybody feel relaxed… it was the perfect start to my amazing wedding day. Thank you so much for the ‘tears’ tip too… I needed it when I got to the altar …. And it worked! The make-up was fab, it lasted all day (even with the tears) and looked great in the photos! Nadia L

Thank you so much for doing my hair and make-up so nice for my wedding, you made getting ready so stress free and thanks also for helping me with my dress on the day.  I will definitely be recommending you to any friends/family that get married in the future. Thanks again. Michelle B

I just wanted to drop you an email to say thanks again.  I honestly never imagined that my hair and make-up would look that good, I had an image in my head but the real thing was so much better. Everyone was very impressed and really pleased and the bridesmaids loved their hair too. Thank you so much for your time. Carla

I just wanted to say thanks so much for 13 June, you made both me and my bridesmaids feel like a million dollars on the day and the photographs have come out great! Caroline

Harriet made me look and feel totally beautiful on my wedding day. She made me feel so relaxed and comfortable. We all had a wonderful girly morning. She is a real professional. Thank you. Nicola M

Thank you so much Harriet for helping us all get ready. Kate and Anne looked beautiful and we had a wonderful day. The weather turned out perfect; just like you said it would. We will certainly be booking you again in the future. Kate’s hair still looked amazing the next day too. Alison G

Just wanted to say ‘Thanks so much for everything’ you were a star on my wedding day. I do not know what we would have done without you. My hair was perfect exactly what I wanted. You really went that extra mile; especially with helping me into my dress. Thank you so much. Sarah L

I know I have already thanked you but I just wanted to say it again ‘Thank You’. You made mum the girls and I feel calm and relaxed. I had a great day; the best day in my life and I felt a million dollars thanks to you. You were the greatest gift. Molly B

Harriet turned up on time and completed my hair and make-up perfectly. She also did the make-up and hair of my sister-in-law and the hair of the three bridesmaids, aged 11, 5 and 2. Harriet remained calm and jovial; she put me at ease and did a fantastic job. Even I thought I looked stunning! Harriet made me feel and look as special as I had wished for on my wedding day. The make-up and hair did not move all day, yet it looked very natural and I did not feel as if I had layers of foundation on. My hair stayed perfectly in place all day, and even survived my dancing to The Killers and other such rock’n’roll bands! Harriet was so good, that we booked her again for my future sister-in-laws wedding in November and I am confident that she will do an amazing job. Harriet was on time, worked to the deadline was professional, friendly, used all high quality products, stayed calm and is a lovely person. What more can you ask for, I would highly recommend her services to anyone. Catherine E

Harriet made me feel at ease on the day of my Wedding and she made me look and feel fab. She helped with the things that seem little like putting on and tying up your dress which isn’t a little thing !!!

Rachel E

Harriet created amazing hair styling and make up for my Bridesmaids, my Mother and I.  Harriet is a true professional but also a wonderful person and made my family and I feel so very special.  We could not have asked for more and Harriet’s contribution to making our wedding perfect was truly appreciated along with her help getting everyone ready in time!  Harriet deserves recognition for her work and it was a real pleasure spending time with her! Lisa R

Harriet did my hair and makeup and from my vague ideas came up with my perfect look. I felt brilliant all day and evening long and didn’t need the little touch up kit she left me. She even helped with getting me in my dress! I cannot recommend her enough and wish I could have her to get me ready on a daily Basis! X
