Hi Gillian,

Sorry for the late reply, with the post wedding tasks and flying back to Japan I've only just had a chance to sit down and start sending out the thank you emails.

So, please accept my thanks for making my wife and family's hair look so beautiful on the day! And also, thank you for helping them to get ready, I understand you were a big help!

I should get the pictures from the photographer within the next few weeks. I will send you a link when I get them.

We got your contact details from The Petersham Hotel Richmond and I'm so glad we picked you.

I hope you are well? I just wanted to say a huge 'Thank You' for all your help leading up to my wedding day. My hair and make up looked absolutely fantastic and I felt like a princess all day. Lots of people commented on how lovely and ethereal I looked and this is thanks to all your hard work:)! It still looked good when I got to Heathrow at 2am the next day!!!

Please find attached a couple of pictures, when I receive the official pictures I will be sure to send some showing off your excellent work!

Thanks again!

Best regards,

Hi Gillian
I just wanted to send you a quick note to say how stunning Catherine's hair looked on Saturday. It was the most beautiful I've ever seen her look and her hair was just exquisite.
You did a brilliant job - thank you very much indeed.
Kind regards

Just a quick message to say thanks for Sunday. Mum loved her hair and the bride loved the girls' hair. It was very similar to her style so absolutely perfect!

Thank you so much for making them look wonderful!

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you did on my wedding day. My makeup and hair were to die for and I was especially pleased with how my hair turned out - you made me feel a million dollars and I got so many comments.

Thanks a million

We were all so amazed by the job you did on our hair - as was the make up artist that was working with us.

Will definitely recommend you to others - especially if any more of Pete's army friends get married at Sandhurst or in the area!

Thanks again Gillian!

Thank you so much for coming to the house on 9th October and doing my hair and nails so nicely, my sister Belinda was thrilled with her manicure too, well done!

It was a wonderful day for us both, very memorable.

Gilian I will certainly recommend you to all my friends.

I just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you for getting us ready for Joseph’s wedding day on Sept 4th. We were all delighted (even Anna!) with the end results and received many compliments. The day was magical and I know that all mothers say that but it really was.

I just wanted to write to let you know I was delighted with the make up and hair you did for my wedding day. The make up especially lasted so well throughout the day despite it being hot; I didn't want to wash it off that evening!

I'll certainly pass on your details to my friends.

Best of wishes

Jane Maitland - Wedding June 2009

Thank you,

Our hair was absolutely perfect and we didn't need to touch up any makeup or hair all evening! Thank you so much for helping to make our photos look fantastic

Dear Gillian,

Thank you so much for all your hard work before and on the day of my wedding. You helped create a warm yet calming atmosphere when we were getting ready. Thank you for making Emiko, Jacqui, my Mum and me look our absolute best.

I can't tell you how important it was to me to feel like I looked good. I'm not very photogenic and was worried about my appearance, but thanks to your hair and make-up magic I felt great and my husband thought I looked fabulous too.

Thank you for all the hair accessories (all of which were beautiful), your expert hairdressing and make-up application for all of us.

All the very best to you, Gillian, and please send my best regards to Valerie your Mum who made me the best tiara ever!

Lots of Love and heart-felt thanks

(May 2009)

You really made my day. Everyone commented on how stunning I looked but what made me cry was when Mark cried when I met him at the bottom of the isle! I know that was down to you making me look and feel so beautiful. The tiara and veil was also absolutely stunning. Thanks a million from both of us!

Andrew and Mark - March 2009


It was super you were able to do our housekeeper Andrea's hair too, thank you for that, made her feel really nice on the day too. Honeymoon island here Canary Islands has been nice, but we will be happy too to be home again on Wednesday and be at home in our own place and read all the letters that apparently have been arriving. Well, I felt you and your mother a very special couple of people too.....hopefully you can do my hair again in future and we can have more toast and tea and chat. With love to you both from Sarah and Alanxx

A card to follow, but I wanted to send you a quick note of thanks as soon as we got back for all of your help. You suffered a bit with my mysteriously greasy hair, late cake and nerves, but through it all retained an easy calm and patience. You were a really great source of support and deserved every cent of your fee that morning!!
More than that, despite me having zero sleep for a week before hand and loo-washed hair you did an amazing job of making me look not unlike a princess, which is as far as I am concerned is a bloody miracle.

Thanks again

Thank you for the wonderful job you did on my face and hair. I still love my tiara comb and keep trying to create occasions where I could wear it again!

Thank you again for doing such an amazing job on all of our hair, I had so many comments on how wonderful it looked. I really cant thank you enough! My husband was thrilled with the finished product! We had such a fantastic day and are still talking about it.

I just wanted to add to my mum's sentiments; thank you so much for contributing to our wedding day, and making me look beautiful (even if I do say so myself). We had the most perfect wedding day, it couldn't have gone
any better, so thank you again. I will be pleased to recommend you in the future, all the best

Karen Field - 3rd March 2008

We have to write to you to thank you soooo much for your help on our wedding day ~ 9th June 2007. You did a fantastic job on my hair and make up – I have never felt so special. Everyone commented on how lovely I looked and how amazing my hair was – this is all thanks to you. You really did do the most fantastic hair do and make up and it really did last the duration, the final guests left us at just after midnight and my hair still held the curls and looked just as fabulous as it did at mid day when you did it! Thank you again for making my day even more perfect – it truly was the best day of our lives.

Warmest regards
Victoria and Sean
Mr and Mrs Alder!
Thank you for the absolutely great hairdos and my makeup.
We looked wonderful in our pictures and the girls felt like pricesses throughout the day. It was great to meet you and your mother Valerie who makes wonderful tiaras and I would not hesitate to recommend you to any friends.
Zena - February 2008

A huge thank you for all your hard work for our wedding at Great fosters on 22nd September! Although I know I was a pain flapping with the make up and everything you made me feel like a million dollars on the day- thank you! The jewellery your mother made of looks stunning! To be honest I wish I could have you helping with my hair and makeup everyday!!!
Many many thanks again.
