A further selection of genuine testimonials from my brides…
“Kaz Fernando was nothing short of incredible throughout my wedding. I had decided to do an Indian wedding in Austria over the summer. I had such a mix of events, from a traditional Austrian evening to a proper Indian ceremony. Kaz managed to create such different looks for each event, and made me feel equally as confident at all of them – which I thought would be mission impossible!
I’m someone who has gotten used to my one style of make-up and very stuck in my comfort zone – so I was very wary of deviating away from this. However, after seeing how Kaz transformed me for my first event, the civil ceremony outdoors, with such a soft and subtle look, I just left everything up to her for the rest of the weekend.
I’ve always thought I was a perfectionist when it came to make-up – but Kaz takes this to the next level! In other trials I was always assessing the looks for uneven eyeliner / lashes etc – but there was nothing like that to even consider with Kaz. I also wanted to steer clear of the heavy Indian bridal make-up as it’s not my style – and Kaz managed to create dramatic, striking looks without ever going too heavy at all – she built each look up gradually until we got to a point where both of us were very happy with the end result.
Aside from the make-up, it was just a pleasure to have Kaz around – she was calm, relaxed and helped me stay stress-free throughout the whole weekend.
I can’t recommend Kaz enough to anyone – if you’re even thinking about booking Kaz for your event, just have a consultation and you’ll be convinced!”
“I just wanted to send you a huge thank you for the wonderful job you did on our hair and makeup. I really appreciate the time and effort you put in and the result was more perfect than I could ever have imagined. Your work is truly stunning and you made sure I felt and looked fabulous. I feel so lucky to have found you. You are incredibly talented and something of a one off. You went over and above to make my day (and the night before) so special.
Thank you also for keeping me calm, for your patience and helping to make my day so perfect.”
“Although initially a little depressed at the thought we were all so ugly it was going to take two of you several hours to make [our] entourage presentable, you really waved your magic wand, and many brushes, to transform us into a bevy of beauties!
Hannah looked SO perfect (her Mum is allowed to boast!) She looked so naturally radiant and happy, with the most enviably glossy and thick hair I have ever seen. You made the whole experience great fun. Your professionalism and talent gave us great confidence that what ever else might not go to plan, we would all look “perfect”.
In the event the whole day was wonderful and I just wanted to thank you for helping make Hannah’s day be as special as she hoped it would be.”
“Thank you sincerely for doing an amazing job. Every single person said that my hair and make-up were stunning. Everything was a breeze and the day was amazing.”
“Everyone commented on how lovely my hair looked and my make up still looked fresh at the end of the night, even after lots of dancing! I absolutely loved how you did my eyes too, they look so good in the pictures!”
“Kaz, been a few weeks now since the bar mitzvah and we all owe you such a huge thanks for the amazing make up you did… and last minute hair saving ! I have gone out and bought all the amazing make up you recommended including the magic foundation brush. Look forward to working with you in the near future”
“Hi Kaz thank you for Saturday, you were a very calming influence when the butterflies started and coped very well with my maid of honour and my mum poking about in your makeup kit!!”
Morven S., Cannizaro House, Wimbledon
“Kaz, thanks so much for transforming Lisa, Leanne, my mum and I into little stunners on Saturday. We all had so many compliments. My hair and the eye makeup were to die for. You are a star!”
Donna S., Cheam, Surrey
“I had barely slept and was horribly nervous on the morning of the wedding (so hardly a makeup artist’s dream client) and to top it off, we were also splitting the prep time between our hotel and the venue which made things a lot more complicated! Kaz did a fantastic job of keeping the morning really relaxed and calming for me and my bridesmaids whilst also organising the logistics just brilliantly.
Thanks to Kaz I had a chance to relax and really enjoy the morning with my two gorgeous bridesmaids and it was amazing to see their hair and makeup come together so beautifully. The hair and makeup made a huge difference to one of my bridesmaid’s in particular, who at nearly seven months pregnant was feeling more self conscious than normal (even though she didn’t need to be at all!). She looked amazing and felt so confident that she was more than happy to be photographed all day which was a fantastic result. My makeup and hair was just perfect and stayed put all day, all I had to do was top up my lip gloss so it couldn’t have been any easier”
Sarah H., Nonsuch Mansion, Surrey
“I just wanted to thank you so much for my beautiful make up and your calm companionship on Saturday. You were so fabulous and my Mother and I so enjoyed you being there with us and both loved our make-up so much. So many people commented on it. Thank you so much, I could not have been happier and I hope you now have a wonderful few days rest. We had an absolutely amazing day and I will send you some pictures when we are back from honeymoon”
Abby B., Nonsuch Mansion, Surrey
“I know I am just the bridesmaid and I am sure you will hear from Carly too but I just wanted to thank you for helping to make my sisters day so special. We had a lovely few hours getting ready and you helped to keep it a relaxed few hours and Carly just looked amazing! I can absolutely see why Jez recommends you, as you do what you do very well not only from a make up perspective but you become part of the day and helped enormously to make the day enjoyable.”
Clare E., (sister of the bride) Gosfield Hall, Essex
So sorry for not getting in touch earlier! I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the truly amazing job you did with the make-up for me and my bridesmaids on my wedding day. All our make-up looked perfect, and it lasted all day! Loads of people have commented on how good it looked, and Lucy (who very rarely wears any make up) is now converted and she honestly looked amazing. Sorry it was all a bit of a rush and we got a bit stressed towards the end – I honestly appreciate you keeping me calm – thank you so so much!! The day went absolutely perfectly…”
Amy S., Coltsford Mill, Surrey
“Thank you so much for doing my hair and make up for my 30th! You listened to what I wanted, gave amazing advice and did a beautiful job!”
Selina H., Wimbledon
“Thanks again for being so wonderful on our wedding day. I was not expecting to be so emotional – it can’t have been easy doing my hair and make-up when I kept welling up! Thank you for making me feel like a princess.”
Helen A., Nonsuch Mansion, Surrey
Kaz was absolutely fabulous from start to finish. Right from the trial to the day itself she was friendly, explained what she was doing at all times, listened and took note of my comments and opinions and ensured I had the exact look I wanted for the day.
Above and beyond this she went the extra mile – helping me get into my wedding dress and managed to maintain an air of calm around me at all times amongst a fairly chaotic household! The products she used were excellent and I had countless comments on how I still managed to look so polished at the end of the evening (especially after some serious dancing!) I cannot thank Kaz enough and would totally recommend her.”
Clare C., The Lansdowne Club, London
“I just wanted to formally express my gratitude for doing our hair and make-up for my wedding day. Even if I say it myself, I looked beautiful. I’d not really let myself imagine what it would be like walking down the isle as the fear of everyone looking at me was so great; however when I got there I was so full of confidence it was fine!
Thank you for making the very long journey over to Newbury, setting off so early to prime, preen and add that extra sparkle to each of us. The difference after you finished was amazing! Thank you for all the hard work and effort, keeping us calm, it was much appreciated.”
Lindsay A., Highclere Castle
“What can I say – THANK YOU!! You made my bridesmaid and I look and feel fabulous all day!! My makeup stayed on and looking exactly the same all day/night!! I did not even re -apply! You were brilliant in the morning, you and Sarah made it calm and we all felt like we were being pampered!
You are simply brilliant!”
Sheena N., Surrey
“I would like to thank you so much for making my beautiful daughter Laura look exquisite on her wedding day last week. I also want to thank you for my make up too. It was the first time I have ever been made up professionally and, like Laura’s make up, it lasted the whole day and night. Laura told me how calm you were and what good fun you and your assistant were whilst making her and all the bridesmaids look wonderful.
I can honestly say your input truly made a wonderful contribution to a flawless day. With heartfelt thanks…”
Pamela C., East Sussex
“From the moment when I emailed her for the first time as a nervous bride-to-be who never wears make up, Kaz was professional, responsive and authoritative. The trial was brilliant as I learned so much and she suggested lots of things which I have been able to use every day as well as on my wedding day.
On the day itself, Kaz was calm, patient and lovely to have around. She listens so carefully to what you want which meant everything was checked with me first. I ended up looking like me, just a thousand times better. It meant that for the first time in my life I did not have to worry about what I looked like and could just enjoy our wonderful day. I would recommend Kaz without any hesitation, and only wish I had another occasion for which I could book her again!”
Roz A., Kingston
“I just wanted to say thank you for the work you did on the hair and make up for me and my bridal party on my wedding day. You did an amazing job and I was SO pleased – I had so many compliments on the day.
Thank you also for the effort you made to get there on the day in the snow. I hope you got home OK, I hear it took you a few hours! Thank you again, I was so glad that someone recommended you to me.!”
Vicky B., Essex
“A slightly belated but huge THANK YOU for everything you did to make sure my hair and makeup were just perfect on our wedding day! I so appreciated the time you took to try out different ideas in advance, especially given I don’t usually wear very much make-up. My hair was a work-of-art and I felt a million dollars walking up the aisle. My husband’s face said it all!”
Caz B., London
“Thank you so much again for being so spectacular on my wedding day…and keep up the brilliant Facebook updates – I love them!”
Tamara L., London
“Thank you so much for all your very professional services which you provided for Caroline’s wedding. It was lovely to have such a friendly person in the house with such a calm personality. Everyone looked glamorous on the day, especially the bride. Many thanks for everything!”
Fiona H., Cambridge
“Just wanted to thank you for Saturday, you were an absolute star! We had the most fantastic day at Cannizaro House in the sunshine and everyone said my make up looked amazing. Thank you again”
Justine C., Wimbledon
“Thank you very much Kaz, the hair and make up was lovely, I got so many compliments – it was perfect!”
Pei-Chi W., London
“Kaz, Thank you so much for making me and my bridal party look so fabulous on my wedding day. Absolutely everyone commented on our hair and makeup and (wow!) my hair stayed put all day long, despite my massive veil weighing it down! You not only made us look fab, but you were also brilliant company for the whole morning as we all got ready. You were amazing!”
Helene W., Wentworth, Surrey
“Kaz, I would like to thank you and Sarah for helping make me and my bridal party feel and look so fantastic. My mum and my sister were both very nervous about the ‘make over’ experience but you made them feel amazing. As for me, I had a vision that I couldn’t really put into words but you seemed to understand. My husband was blown away when he saw me!”
Claire S., London
“Thank you so much for being our hair and make-up artist. You were so professional and managed to make the whole experience so relaxing and enjoyable! I felt like a princess from start to finish – it was wonderful having someone who I felt I could trust being part of my special day. Thank you again for everything!!”
Bianca G., London
“My BIGGEST thank you to Kaz for doing such a wonderful job on my hair and make-up for my wedding. I felt like a celebrity for once in my life. My now husband was speechless when he saw me walking down the aisle. Kaz made sure to bring out all my best features, my eyes were stunning! My husband and our guests thought my lashes were my own, they looked absolutely beautiful! I loved it! Thank you very much once again Kaz, you made me one of the happiest bride of 2009″
Grace K., Worcester Park, Surrey
“I just wanted to thank you so much for transforming me. (My husband) loved my look. We had a truly magical day”
Emma G., Horsley Park, Surrey
“Thank you so much for the amazing hair styling you did for us all on my wedding day. You were so patient and we were all so pleased with the end result – better than we had ever hoped for! So thank you for helping make my day that bit more special. P.S. – I’ve asked Father Christmas for some of those heated rollers!”
Helen F., Datchett, Berkshire
“Thank you so much for your wonderful hair creations. which you most skilfully styled for all four of us on my daughter’s wedding day. I must say we were all VERY impressed with your expertise and efficiency, also your warm friendly approach. We thoroughly enjoyed both your visits (the trial and the day) and we received many compliments on the day which really belong to you!”
Kay F., Windsor
“Just to say what a pleasure it was to meet you and have the privilege of you doing my make up for Amy’s wedding. Thank you for doing such a brilliant job. Everyone looked absolutely amazing. I had never had my make up professionally done before and didn’t quite know what to expect but I felt instantly comfortable with you. You made me feel like a queen. I can’t tell you how much you helped to relax and calm me. So many people remarked on how radiant I looked and I know that is down to you. You even managed to make my eyes look big and beautiful, something I wouldn’t have believed possible – you are truly an artist!! The wedding was stunning and you gave me the confidence to relax and enjoy it knowing I looked the best I could possibly be. Thanks again Kaz. You are an absolute star”
Sue S., Gidea Park, Essex
“Just a note to say a huge thank you for being my hair and make up artist on July 10th 2009. You did an amazing job – I felt a million dollars and the day was the most enjoyable of my life. Thank you so much”
Catherine C., South West London
“This is a heart-felt thank you very much for helping to make it such a special occasion for me. I knew from my make up trial that you would do a good job with my make up, and you managed to exceed my mother’s expectations with her make-up. So many people commented on how glamorous my mum looked! We both felt that you managed to bring a sense of calm to the morning – and thank goodness you were there to adjust my veil when my bridesmaids were struggling! As you know, my brother is getting married in September and I’m sure his fiancée will be looking for a make-up artist. I’ll have no hesitation in recommending you to her”
Sophie H., Wimbledon, London SW19
“I just wanted to say thank you very much for the wonderful makeover you did for my sister, nieces and me. I felt a million dollars on the day. Thank you!!”
Emma P., Wimbledon, London SW19
“I could not have asked for a better professional service – Kaz was amazingly organised and thorough, from first contact to the actual wedding day. She was incredibly calm, focussed and reassuring especially on the big day itself. She went through the colour choices and arranged a make up and hair trial well in advance of the wedding day. She was extremely flexible and made very useful suggestions on suitable styles and colour schemes which we were all so grateful for.
Kaz did Mother of the Bride, my sister and of course the Bride all in the same day; how she remained so focussed and efficient is a mystery to us all!
Kaz was always prompt and timely with all her communications not to mention her professionalism and supreme standard of delivery on the actual wedding day. All our guests commented on her wonderful work on my hair and make up. Thank you so much Kaz for making me look a million dollars on my special day!”
Yaso S., Wimbledon, London SW19
“I used Kaz to do my hair and make up for my wedding and I would definitely recommend her to anyone. We had a trial at my house a couple of months before the wedding and she came up with lots of different suggestions which were great. The trial was never rushed and I felt like I was being pampered. On the wedding day Kaz arrived early allowing plenty of time to get ready, we even had a power cut and she still managed to do my hair with no straightners or tongs and still looked great! It was a pleasure to meet her and would definitely hope to see her again.”
Elaine C., Mitcham, nr. Wimbledon, London
“Kaz did a fantastic job for my wedding hair and make-up. There were two contrasting looks: a formal “up” do for the ceremony day and with long, flowing tresses for the reception day. The make-up was lovely and natural-looking, and I am still following Kaz’s tips about everyday make-up. Kaz is very professional and calm and I felt fantastic at both events. My daughter also loved her bridesmaid’s hair. Definitely recommended.”
Rosalyn E., Surbiton, Kingston upon Thames, Surrey
“I first met Kaz at a photo shoot I did with our wedding photographer. The shoot was for some sexy but very tasteful shots for my husband. She did my hair and makeup and both looked fab. She did the make up so well that it didn’t need any Photoshop touch ups! Kaz also did my wedding makeup (not my hair as my friend is my hairdresser and did all the hair as our present, although I would have had Kaz had that not been the case).
On the day she turned up in plenty of time, was lovely and calm, very professional and someone who was really great to have as part of the preparations. She did my makeup, plus my grown up bridesmaid (who looked gorgeous) and she was very kind and applied a little makeup to my two girls aged 4 and 7, who had been waiting patiently for their turn! Kaz really listens to what you want, and talks you through what she’s doing and shows you as she is working. The result was stunning makeup which stayed put all day even with tears and very hot sun. Thanks Kaz for helping to make me feel like a princess for the day!”
Emma F., Richmond, South West London
“I contacted Kaz about doing my hair and make-up for my wedding as I wanted the same person to do both so I didn’t have to worry about one not turning up! She came to my house in Woking for the trial a few weeks before the big day and tried a couple of hairstyles before I decided on which one I liked best. My make-up was done afterwards and looked so good it was a shame to take it off but I had to as my husband-to-be was downstairs and I did not want him to see it!
On the day Kaz turned up on time and transformed me from Beast to Bride! The make-up stayed on all day and my hair did not budge until I took it down at the end of the night. I would recommend her to anyone as she is not only good at what she does but she is friendly and reliable.”
Sian M., Woking, Surrey
“Kaz was able to come to our salon and provide us with a highly professional make up section for one of our photo shoots. I have to say, she was fantastic!! She understood our needs immediately and was really friendly and a pleasure to work with.”
Howard Woodcock, Dry 503 Ltd., Raynes Park, London SW20
“Kaz did an amazing job on my bridal hair and make up – she totally transformed me! She’s also a lovely, calm person to have around on the morning of your wedding.”
Catriona C., Wimbledon, London SW19
“I’ve used Kaz on a number of occasions for professional photo shoots. Her versatility and experience mean that I trust her implicitly to come up with the look I’m after. It’s not easy to find someone who’s good at both hair and makeup. I highly recommend her!”
