laura Bedford Anita and I have worked together several times previously so I knew she would be perfect to do my wedding make- up as she always made me look my best on shoots and has such a relaxed, warm demeanor which I think is so important before a shoot but particularly before getting married, she put me totally at ease.  I'm the biggest perfectionist and was constantly asking her about new colours or samples of foundation and she always satisfied my craziness by sending samples and reassuring me (they didn't seem crazy questions in the stress before getting married!)  On the day Anita was part of the girls, I didn't even notice she was there but each bridesmaid keep floating past looking better than I'd ever seen them, she had organized all seven of them all without any fuss.  Something really special on the day was Anita staying until late in the evening in the restrooms to give our guests a VIP treatments, touching up make-up and hair and 'changing' my look for the evening reception.  I'm so please with everything Anita did before and on the day of my wedding, she's a truly lovely person to have around and makes you look and feel the very best you can which is all I can ask for!  Thanks so much for everything.


Anita did my bridal make-up, my bridesmaids make-up and my mum's makeup for my big day!  I was so impressed, and everyone looked stunning.  She really listened to what I wanted but was also excellent at suggesting what she thought would work well, and I found her to be very approachable, and nothing was too much trouble.  One of the best things about Anita is that she is really relaxed and friendly and this meant that the atmosphere when we were having our make-up done was relaxed and stress free, which from a brides perspective is essential as you want to enjoy getting ready in a relaxed environment.  Anita is a true professional and it shows in her work, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to anyone.

Anita is not just a fabulous make-up artist but a truly beautiful person.  My husband and I married in Spain in 2010. Some things you just can't control when getting married abroad so I wanted a make-up artist I could really trust.  I contacted a few people in the UK who quoted astronomical prices.  Anita was extremely good value but certainly didn't compromise on quality.  Prior to the wedding we met a few times and tried out different looks until we were both happy.  On the big day, I had every confidence that Anita would do a great job, and she did.  Those few hours before you walk down the isle are the most nerve wracking yet Anita was a real calming influence.  She went beyond the call of duty providing candles and music.  We invited Anita to join in our celebrations and she was on hand all day to do retouches until the party finished at 5am!  Many guests commented on how fabulous Anita was and have since booked her for their own weddings.  Anita is a perfectionist who's skills go further than just a wedding make-up artist.  She is passionate about her work which is reflected in the fresh and distinctive looks she creates, not to mention her personal touches.  Since the wedding Anita and I have worked on several photo shoots and TV jobs together and I'm please to say has become a good friend.  Amy Garcia - BBC Yorkshire and BBC 3 Presenter
