I was introduced to Polka through a friend and I am so happy that I was. Polka is more than a makeup / hair artist, she becomes your encouraging friend. I felt so comfortable with Polka, and trusted her totally. I was nervous about my wedding day that took place in October 2015, but Polka with her adorable humour, kindness and talent, made those nerves calm instantly once I saw her progress on my look for the day. She's the best. xx Thank you Polka!

Sylwia did make-up for my wedding back in 2008. As one can imagine I was nervous and excited. She stayed relaxed, composed and professional. She took on board all the suggestions I had and executed them perfectly. I felt she completely understood what I had imagined. Thanks to Sylwia's effort my make up worked perfectly with the dress and hair. I felt fabulous and truly looked after. Thank you x
