Testimonials 2012

“Hi Zoe, I tried to leave a rating but it wouldn’t let me, so….Iv written this instead :)I had a hair and make up trial in March for my wedding – which is now only 16 days away !!!!! 🙂 Zoe was brilliant and put me at ease. She also brought Vicki along, who was lovely 🙂 My hair and make-up looked stunning. She knew exactly what I wanted and worked her magic. Zoe is also very quick at replying to texts and emails. Zoe has been very accommodating despite me booking her last minute! On the wedding day, Zoe will also be doing wedding hair and make-up for me, my 3 adult bridesmaids and mums of the bride and groom. Can’t wait to see you again on the morning of my wedding. A brilliant service so far 🙂 xx” – Sarah Derry

“Zoe came to my house at an extremely early hour and was very professional throughout. She created the look I wanted and made me feel at ease all morning. My mum and bridesmaids looked fantastic, and Zoe was fantastic especially since she needed to use one of my bridesmaids own makeup due to her suffering a possible allergy to the makeup during the trial. I knew it was perfect when both my Dad and my new husband both said that I looked so gorgeous and took their breath away. I cannot thankyou enough for giving me that magical moment. Thank you :)” – Michelle Oakley

“Thank you Zoe for EVERYTHING you did for my wedding on the 25th February 2012.  You exceeded my expectations, and those of my bridal party, from the moment I got in touch with you.  As you were fully aware, feeling fantastic on your wedding day is the most important part, but your attention to detail and ensuring that my bridal party also felt fabulous was a bonus.
There was no pressure during the quotations and subsequent booking, just helpful, friendly advice from who I deemed to be the ‘expert’. Your flexibility with the make up for all of my bridal party was dream.  Being unsure who would want make up on the day (and not wanting to pay for it unnecessarily), the ability for them to ‘dabble’ with their make up free of charge during their hair trial and ultimately make a decision themselves, was ideal
At the trial you were given a blank canvas for 5 people (a challenge for anyone) as some people had ideas and others didn’t (including me, except the proviso that I wanted my hair up), but you took it in your stride and as the expert, which you evidently were, were able to focus our minds, bring out our personalities and ultimately make us look and feel fabulous.
Your experience, in all matters of a wedding, were immediately recognisable and gratefully received from the time of booking straight through until my big day.  You arrived early, with a huge smile on your face ready to take on a very excitable group of people, accommodating the needs of two very small babies.  I will be eternally grateful for everything you did, not only such an amazing job with hair and make up, for 5 people with totally different hair (colours, thickness and length) and skin tones, but also general advice.  Your assistance with buying additional hair to create the perfect hairstyles, alternations to the girls dresses, tying sashes and colours for my mums fascinator could not have been foreseen and were totally out of the expectations I had from a hair and make up artist.
Inner Beauty are not only experts in hair and make up, but experts in wedding preparations and are a must have for the morning of your wedding.  They focus on ensuring everyone leaves for wedding happy, and not just the Bride, even putting you into your dress if you need them too!  Everything went to time, no mess created and I couldn’t have been happier with the service they provided.  I kind of want to get married again just to see Zoe and get her fabulous advice.  I would recommend her to anyone without a doubt.
Thank you Zoe, you are a star!” – Cheryll Ellis

“Wow, what can I say? Zoe remained the friendly, professional consummate throughout.As you can imagine, we had to deal with various people / companies for our wedding (venue, caterer, florist etc) and Zoe certainly stood out as one of the best.As a result of the trials and her vast experience, my hair and make up for both the wedding ceremony and reception was perfect (as was my 2 sisters which Zoe also did).She gave good advice and tips during the trials, not only with the hair and make up itself but with accessories also which demonstrated her passion and enthusiasm I felt. I particularly liked that Zoe listened to what I thought / wanted, and didn’t just get carried away with the make-up and hairspray! She knows what she is doing and evidently has a lot of experience.Zoe was completely hands on. She was quick thinking when my dress had a malfunction on the wedding day (can you imagine?!), not quite sure what I would have done without her. She also came to my cousins rescue, and helped the groom and best men in getting ready.We had such a great day, my husband and I said we’d love to do it all again, and if we did, Zoe would be the first person I’d call.” – Jasmin Pall

“It was a great relief when I finally found Inner Beauty Weddings! With myself, 5 bridesmaids and my Mum all needing hair & makeup for a 1030am ceremony I realised this was a big ask and most other companies were not flexible enough to do this for me! From the start Zoe was efficient and professional in her fast responses and made me feel completely at ease – and I could tell that she actually cared about all of her brides.At the makeup trial Zoe explained all of my options and gave me plenty of ideas, but did not overpower with her own personal style and, despite my indecision at times, we came up with a look that was perfect. I wanted my hair & makeup to reflect me rather than some catalogue idea of a bride and Zoe was able to achieve this.On the wedding day, as we had come to expect, Zoe arrived early and immediately set about her work in a relaxed and professional manner – despite the chaos that was going on around her. We were all ready in plenty of time and looked even better than during the trial. The makeup was absolutely perfect and our hair was precisely what I wanted.Our hairstyles and makeup lasted all day – myself and my sisters have very thick hair and have sometimes found that the styles fall out but this was definitely not the case. I really could not have asked for more.Thank you so much – I would highly recommend Zoe to do both hair and makeup to any potential bride x” – Katherine Starke

“I had Zoe from Inner Beauty to do my hair and make up for my wedding in April. And she was just brilliant! She gave me great advice and made me look and feel fantastic! She arrived very early and helped me with everything including the dress. She made this morning so much less stressful and put me at ease despite of last minute changes in my hair and make up. Thank you, Zoe, so much for making my special day even more beautiful! I loved my make up and hair and got lots of compliments for it. Thank you! You are such a star! 🙂 Recommend gladly to every bride!” –  Andrea

“After months of searching for someone to do both hair & make-up at an affordable price for my daughters prom we were delighted to find Zoe. Not only did Zoe offer a service personal & affordable but she went above & beyond all expectations to ensure my daughters day was as special as possible. My daugher looked & felt amazing, Zoe also added personal touches along the way & on top of all that saved us from a near disaster of not having a prom dress after alterations went wrong, not once but twice! We couldn’t have coped without Zoe & I wouldn’t use anyone else should i ever require any aspect of beauty, hair or even advice. Top class service, friendly and afforable. Zoe you’re amazing !!!! xxx” – Jenny Lockley

“My sister booked Zoe for her wedding in June last year, after seeing how fantastic she was, I made sure she wrote my date in her diary. Not only did she go above and beyond duty but it felt as though we’d known her for years, she made me feel so relaxed. My wedding is just over a month away and I have no concerns at all. We’ve recently had the trials and not only does she listen to what you want, she also adds a twist on to it to make it look so much better. Both of my bridesmaids (my sisters) who Zoe had seen last year, in June, just said “do whatever you think”, simply because they knew she would get it right and she did. Not only have I got the perfect hair and make-up artist, I have also gained a friend. Out of 10… I would give her 11! x” – Samantha

“I had Zoe from Inner Beauty do my hair for my wedding in May this year and she was flipping fantastic !! She arrived promptly the morning of my wedding and got to work on my 4 bridesmaids, 3 flower girls, my mum and me.. she did a fabulous job on us all and her advice was top notch.. from my extensions to my tiara matching my dress she had advice on it all 🙂 Sadly the make up artist i had booked at a much higher price before finding Zoe made an absolute balls up of my make up and before leaving the house i had a face so shiny you would have had to wear sunglasses to look at me.. not the best look for my wedding. Zoe got her make up out, fixed my make up.. which may i add lasted all day and looked perfect 🙂 She also pinned my bridesmaids dress, got me into and tied my wedding dress, removed my socks and put on my wedding shoes, added the flowers to my mums and dads outfits.. and finally even helped with my dads trousers when embarrassingly they split as we got into my wedding car.. lol 🙂 All i can say is thank you, you made the morning of my wedding 10x less stressful and my wedding party and myself don’t know what we would have done without you. I will be recommending you to all of my friends and hope that this review gets you further recommendations 🙂 Thank you again, Claire xxx” – Claire Edwards

“We booked Zoe from Inner Beauty to do my hair and make up plus four bridesmaids 3rd June 2012. She was fantastic! She turned up at the Castle Hotel where we was getting married early. We was all sorted well within time and she made us all look beautiful. Not only that she has given me 110% support over the last 6 months with trials etc and just being there if I needed anything. Everyone on the day said how amazing we all looked, so Zoe thank you for everything I appreciate everything you have done for me and I would recommend you to any bride. Kelly XX” – Kelly Hopkins

“I was looking for someone to do my hair and makeup for my wedding in May, and I came across Inner Beauty. I’m so glad I did, as I couldn’t have asked for better service from Zoe! She was very helpful in providing suggestions and ideas, and my hair and makeup turned out much better than I had hoped! I would definitely recommend Zoe and Inner Beauty!” – Lyndsey Reid

“During and after my trial today Wow I first contacted inner beauty and spoke to zoe after having 2 very bad experiences with 2, as I would now say inexperienced hair and makeup companies. But enough about that. From my first phone call to zoe, she reassured me that one she was available and 2 all the great products she use s and 3 her approach to her clients is second to none. She is a great person who as I seen today takes pride in what she does and is very professional at her job. Sows ora is fantastic I was worried after having bad experiences as any bride would be. Zoe is a very bubbly person who with her great personality puts u at ease and for me distressed me. I can’t wait for zoe to be a big part of my day as today I looked amazing and with very short hair I thought it would be near impossible to make it look so nice but also different to how I normally wear it it was beautiful, zoe asks questions about what u like and dnt like which is brilliant , and as for my makeup that too was stunning, I can not fault zoe in any aspect of her work she truly is amazing, her personality work effort experience manor and her professionalism she is amazing hair and makeup person I look forward to my wedding day and looking as beautiful as I did today thank you zoe youre wonderful xxxxx” – Jennifer Randle

“Zoe was recommended by a friend who had her wedding hair and make up with Inner Beauty. From my first contact, Zoe was professional, friendly and enthusiastic. Zoe did my wedding hair and make up and also my five bridesmaids. Zoe has a talent for drawing out your ideas and making them come to fruition! I had a clear idea of the style of hair and make up and following our initial conversations and my trial I was totally exstatic with my look! Zoe was the consummate professional on the day and worked with all of the bridesmaids as individuals taking into account their personal preferences, age and my direction for style. Zoe met with me to purchase additional hair items to complete my look and on my big day I have never received so many compliments!! Zoe made me look and feel very special and I would have no hesitation in recommending her for any special occasion!! Thank you so much Zoe for all of your skill and hard work!! 🙂 xxx” – Kelly Benton

“After quite an exhaustive search for someone to do my hair and make up for my wedding day, I came upon Zoe from Inner Beauty. She came to my house to go through a trial session and although I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted, I tried to explain what it was that i was roughly after and Zoe absolutely nailed it. She made me look exactly as I was hoping to look. On the day, she did hair and make up for 4 other ladies and each one of us was stunning. Her professionalism and incredible skill was so appreciated and I would happily refer her onto to anyone. Zoe – you are such a star and I cannot thank you enough. I know for a fact that all us ladies felt gorgeous and that is thanks to you! All my best and biggest thanks, Lauren x” – Lauren

“I would like to say a massive thankyou to Zoe for making me feel amazing on my wedding day on 13th October 2012. When i first spoke to Zoe on the phone I could tell straight away that she knew what she was talking about and was very friendly and helpful. At my trial I had a vague idea of what i wanted with lots of photo ideas. With both the hair and make up she hit the nail on the head first time. She always came back to me quickly when i text or phoned with questions (there were quite a few!!)On the wedding day Zoe arrived early and was very relaxed which made us all feel calm. She did both my bridesmaids and my sisters hair and make up and they all looked stunning. She also managed to squeeze in a couple of friends hair before doing my hair and make up! She really is super woman!! Zoe stayed with me whilst i waited for the car to turn up…which almost didnt! She was all ready to take me and my dad to the venue so we wouldnt be late. She stayed with me until the minute the car door closed to take me to the venue. Zoe went over and above what i would have expected and we all loved the final result. Thankyou so much for everything and especially for making me and my friends feel a million dollars. x” – Charlotte Warwick

“I really do not know where to start. Having won a competition to have hair and make up done for myself, my sister, my mum and my two little girls i was sure we would recieve basic treatment, but this was not the case at all. In fact i would go so far to say that if it was not for Zoe the whole day may have just fallen to pieces. From one disaster to the next, she was there with a solution or just made the best from a bad situation. At our trials she was brilliant, as a family who don’t really do much in the way of hair and make up on regular basis we had no clue as to what we wanted or what suited us. Zoe created a look for all of us that looked good and did not push us out of our comfort zone in the process. On the day of my wedding not only had she worked like a mad woman to solve a big dress dilemma and transformed us all into beautiful ladies but she went over and above her call of duty to dress us, entertain the children, calm me down, take pictures and then after a bit of a mix up she didn’t hesitate to play chauffer and get me to the register office in time. Zoe is a skilled in all fields of her work and will make you feel a million dollars, she will advise you, help you, soothe your nerves and work efficiently and professionally at all times. I cannot recommend her enough and can honestly say that her commitment and dedication to her work has restored my belief that there are good people out there but you’d have to look long and hard to find one like Zoe. x” – Natalie Davy

“oe. Well what can I say about Zoe?! She is fantastic! Wonder woman! She arrived early and was a calm happy face whilst I was flapping about. We sat and talked about different looks and she calmed me right now! She then started on my make up and I love that she let me look after each stage ensuring that I loved it at every point. My eye make up was fantastic! Everyone commented and it lasted all day and all night so I really couldn’t have been happier! Thank you so much Zoe! Anyone thinking of booking make up for their wedding, look no further! Zoe is everything you could want! Professional, helpful and amazing at her job! Thanks again xxx” – Michelle Perks

“I booked Zoe for my wedding day after trailing through website after website comparing peoples qualifications and prices. I found zoe to be both well qualified and also reasonably priced. I contacted her and got immediate communication! I booked her for hair and make up for myself and chief bridesmaid and hair for 4 others (including a very picky mother of the bride!) She turned up to our trial and was very professional and efficient and gave lots of advice and input. On the day she turned up at the venue early, she worked very efficiently and had us all ready in plenty of time. She stayed to help me into my dress, which i found a very helpful service to have! Overall she was fantastic! we were very happy with our looks and we all had lots of very positive comments! would highly recommend!! Stacey x” – Stacey Bardwell

“I first took my daughter along to The Inner Beauty Room as she needed some massage treatments. As she is training to be a professional dancer it is important she has regular massages and treatments as well as plenty of pampering to ensure she looks her best. To be able to go along to Zoe and have the beauty treatments as well as the sports treatments done, all under one roof was totally amazing. Initially my daughter was apprehensive but within minutes Zoe made her feel so relaxed and at home as soon as the treatments were over, she was booking her next one. I cannot thank Zoe enough for helping her to remain relaxed throughout, she was caring, calm, professional and we felt so at home. Not only that but there are not many places you can find that offer such a variety of treatments at such affordable prices all under one very friendly yet professional roof. Zoe you’re a star, you’ve not a judgemental bone in your body and we’ll be seeing you again very soon. xx” – Jenny Lockley

“I got married in August 2012 and booked Zoe to do the hair and make up for the bridesmaids, my mom and myself. I had met Zoe before as she had done my friends wedding so I had no hesitation in booking her for mine. Zoe is extremely good at what she does and worth every penny. I felt relaxed through the whole day and I have never felt so beautiful. I highly recommend Zoe’s services to any bride who wants a stress free morning with someone who makes you feel at ease and of course to top it off makes you the most beautiful woman on the day!!! The service you get is very good value for money and considering we all only had a vague idea what we wanted so gave Zoe creative freedom, she got it spot on for us all! Thank you so much Zoe! Your amazing!! X” – Sarah Middleton

“I first met Zoe when she saved the day last minute at my sisters wedding, and didn’t hesitate booking her for me and my bridesmaids 6 months later. Although my wedding was a 3 hour drive from her home it wasn’t a problem and she got to our venue at 7.30am. Zoe is very experienced and no matter what hair style or type you have have Zoe can make it look better than you ever imagined. The make up for all of us was spot on too. If you book with Zoe you are definatley in safe hands. Me and my sister feel like we have known Zoe for years and would 1000% recommend her to any bride to be :)” – Emma Henderson

“Zoe has done the hair and make up for my wedding in September and my sisters wedding in April. Would definitly recommend. We had an issue with my bridesmaids hair so she came an hour earlier than planned to sort out an alternative hairstyle. She is very creative and listens to what you want and offers great advice if your unsure. Zoe is very helpful on the day as she will help you with your dress etc. Thanks very much Zoe.” – Vanessa Gill

“Absolutely amazing and first class service from Zoe. I discovered Inner Beauty at a wedding fayre and asked Zoe for a quote for my bridal hair and make up. Not only is Zoe extremely competitive on pricing compared to some companies who offer a similar service (mentioning no names), but her knowledge and expertise is next to none! I have very fine hair which is very difficult to style and to work with, and was also struggling to grow my hair enough for the look I wanted to achieve for my wedding day. Not a problem. Zoe advised me of options open to me and how she could achieve what I wanted with false hair pieces. So that is what I did, I went down the artificial route! I was a little apprehensive at first as to what could be achieve, but I need not have worried. The look Zoe created for me was totally stunning, far better than I ever imagined, and so many people commented on how beautiful my hair was. She took on board my ideas for my make up and on my special day she did a fabulous job. I would not hesitate to recommend Zoe to anybody considering using her company, Inner Beauty for their wedding hair and make up. Zoe is extremely knowledgeable, helpful and will work with you and come up with suggestions and ideas in order for you to achieve tour dream hair and make up for your wedding day, and if like me you are clueless and are indecisive, then it isn’t a problem you are in safe and very capable hands. Oh, and did I also mention, she is also a very lovely, warm and kind lady who is willing to bend over backwards for her clients.If you choose Inner Beauty for your wedding hair and make up, you will not regret your decision.” – Suzanne Lapsley

“Zoe was amazing from start to finish. She turned up early so we had plenty of time and made sure each one of my bridesmaids felt comfortable with their hair and make up. Making 5 ladies happy at 7:30am is not an easy thing to do! As far as my hair and make up goes it couldn’t of been more perfect zoe kept re doing it till she was happy and it was amazing. My hair stayed in all day i finally took it out at 12am! Zoe laced me into my dress like a pro! i can’t thank your enough for her faultless service. Thank u zoe for making me feel pretty for the first time in a very long time.” – Kate Squires

“I could not recommend Zoe strongly enough to any bride looking for their bridal hair and make up artist. I got married on 19-10-12 and Zoe did mine and my daughters hair and make up perfectly!!! Looking back at the photos its clear to see that Zoe’s skills are perfect in knowing exactly what make up should be used on a well photographed bride, and it stayed looking perfect all day, as did our hairstyles :-). As well as her hair and make-up expertise, Zoe was also great at helping me calm my nerves and advise me on timing when I was getting impatient to get into my dress…. and when the time did come to get dressed she helped me into my dress and ensured I looked perfect before I went down to my ceremony. I really cannot thank you enough Zoe for everything you did for me that day and it was great to meet such a lovely lady xx” – Tracey Dovey

“well,where do i start! i got married on 26th oct 2012 and first met zoe almost 2 years ago. i found her on a website and saw that she came highly recommended,as soon as i emailed her she replied straight away and we have text each other ever since! on my first trial,which i had quite early on as i’m quite fussy,was fab! zoe is professional,knowledgeable and put me completely at ease. i am very particular when it comes to make up and have never had it done by a professional before but i didnt need to worry! as soon as the trial was done i booked zoe for myself and two adult bridesmaids who were just as impressed! throughout the build up to my wedding zoe has been amazing,although she is a very busy lady she always replied to my queries quickly and was extremely helpful from helping me pick hair extensions to being on hand with advice. On my wedding day we had a dilemma when my hairdressers hadn’t coloured my hair to match my extensions to the right colour,thankfully zoe and one of my bridesmaids dashed to the nearest supermarket (15mins away!) and brought a hair dye,hair extensions were then placed in the bath,dyed,dried and straightened so that they matched perfectly. i’m sure i’m not the first and certainly wont be the last bride to say i now class zoe as a friend, she exceeds more than her job title to ensure brides and their bridal parties look and feel amazing. i can honestly say that i felt like a princess on my wedding day and my photos look amazing,my bridesmaids looked beautiful and i couldnt have asked for anything better! zoe is always on time,professional and amazing at what she does. she put me completely at ease when it came to hair styles too,encouraging me to try a completely new style which suited my wedding dress perfectly! thank you zoe. mwah xxx” – Cassie Hateley
