A look back at my 2017 Weddings

Hello Lovelies, welcome to Bride to Beauty Blog.  As well as running this blog I also work as Jillian Elizabeth Hair and Makeup Artist providing bridal hair and makeup services. I absolutely love my job and I feel so lucky and blessed to be such an important part of so many wonderful brides big days. I have worked for hundreds of brides and I am grateful to each and every one. I love finding out what makes each bride unique and finding their perfect wedding style. For a little more information on booking a wedding with myself click here.

I cant believe that another year of weddings has passed. Where has the time gone. I had so so many beautiful ladies booking with me last year, it was so difficult to choose just a few to share with you. Here are a few of my beautiful brides and their bridal parties with a little bit of feedback that they have left me.



Here is what Nicola thought of her hair and makeup:
“Jillian did make up and hair for me and my bridesmaids for my wedding and we were all absolutely blown away by her skills. She is just the loveliest person and she is so super talented. Jillian completely listened to what I wanted and nothing was too much trouble. I was a very indecisive bride and she was so understanding. I absolutely loved my make up on the day and felt so delighted. Jillian was bang on time and I never felt rushed or that she needed away. I honestly can’t sing her praises highly enough and would say to anyone that if you’re considering Jillian, book her now!!! You will NOT be disappointed. I will definitely be back for any events I’m going to, I wouldn’t want anyone else.”

Charlotte said:
“A huge thank you to Jillian for doing my wedding hair and make-up. I felt at ease with her right from the first meeting. She was great on my special day, helping me and my bridesmaids get ready. My make-up was so natural and my hair stayed in place all day – even after ceilidh dancing! I’d definitely recommend you to other brides – thanks again Jillian”

Here is what Jennifer thought:

“Thank you Jillian, it was a brilliant day. My girls looked beautiful, and my make up managed to stay in place in the heat of the Ccottish sun all of that day! You made me feel relaxed at my trial and on the big day, I will definitely come to you for any future special occasions for hair and make up.”

His is what Philippa thought of her hair and makeup:
“Jillian is so wonderful! She took my worries, anxieties and general indecision and managed to make me feel beautiful on my wedding day. From the trial through to the day itself it was a pleasure working with her. She took me from my “just done the horses and had no sleep for a week” look to feeling beautiful. I also loved the hair and make up she did for my bridesmaids who both loved their looks as well. If you want to feel and look beautiful yet not feel like you are covered in make up then Jillian is your lady! Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.”

Here is Kirsty’s feedback:

“I booked Jillian for my wedding hair and make up because I don’t normally wear a lot of make up and wanted a natural look on my big day. Jillian sounded like she would be able to give me the look I was wanting and I was absolutely blown away. She listened to what I was looking for and understood the overall look I wanted. My bridesmaid even changed her mind about getting her make up done (she also very rarely wears make up) after watching my trial because she hadn’t thought make up could look so natural. We both absolutely loved our hair and make up on the day and couldn’t believe Jillian had made us look so good in such a short space of time. The hair and make up lasted the entire day and night too, even with lots of dancing to contend with! The pre-make up facial cleanse was also a lovely touch and left my skin feeling lovely and fresh.

If nothing else, book Jillian to be there the morning of your wedding just as a calming presence – I know she played a massive part in how chilled I felt in the lead up to the wedding. She also was a huge help in getting me into my dress with minimal effort.

Couldn’t have asked for more from my hair and make up artist. I’ll be trying to find excuses to book her for something else so that I can feel as special and pampered again”

Here is Melissa’s’ feedback on her hair and makeup styling.
“For a long time I’ve tried to imagine what my hair and make up for my big day would be like. My dreams came true in every way possible when Jillian done my look for the most important day of my life. Struggling with confidence and hair loss after my baby. I worried I would not be able to walk down the Isle. Jillian made me feel like nothing could stand in my way when she had finished. She’s amazing at what she does and made me feel like a queen. Every worry I had left me. I can’t thank you enough for everything honestly. From start to finish.”
