With my 30th birthday looming, i decided it was time for a change regards my make up. I have been wearing my make up the same way for almost 15 years and had no idea what colours would suit me, or how to apply other styles of make up. So for an early birthday present my mum paid for me to have a make over. At first she found it very hard to find someone who would do anything but wedding make up. Then she heard Joyce on radio Berkshire, and looked her website up. On the day we had a lovely morning spent shopping and trying on makeup, Joyce was brilliant and new exactly what colours and shades i should be wearing. She was easy going and fun to be around. Then we went back to hers for a lesson in how to apply the makeup. She is a fantastic teacher and shows you were you are going wrong, and taught me that cotton buds are my new best friend! All in all i had a really enjoyable day. I feel so much better with my new makeup, and have had lots of comments about how nice i look, and how much better my makeup is now. Even my boyfriend told me how pretty i look, and boys don’t normally notice that sort of thing!

So thank you Joyce, you are amazing at what you do, and a lovely lady too xxx


Having used Brides and Beauty for my wedding this year I would thoroughly recommend them. They came to my house to do a trial, and listened to what I wanted. The result was fantastic. On my wedding day they arrived in plenty of time, and it was lovely and relaxed I felt from the trial that I knew them very well already. The result was stunning, and lasted the whole day and evening, as they said it would!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your daughter for all your help on our wedding day. Not only did you do all the hair and make up to perfection, and I mean perfection, as none of us are used to make up, but it felt so comfortable, but you helped calm us down and make the whole getting ready experience so special. You were both very genuinely amazing, thank you. Helen

I hope that you are well. You and your daughter were great at making me and my bridal party look amazing on my wedding day on 16 October in Aynho. A few of us realise that we ought to learn more about skin care and make up and I was keen to understand the costs of having a make up party for 3 or 4 of us one afternoon / evening.

Thank you for your help

Thank you very very much for the great job you did on mine and my mother’s hair’. My hair stayed in place all day and looked fantastic! Thanks a million once again!

Dear Joyce and Hayley. Just a quick note to say Thank you so much for all your hard work making me look my very best for my wedding. We all had such a good time with you before the wedding, it was a shame we didn’t start earlier!! You are both wonderful and amazing!!

Hello Joyce thanks so much for my facial yesterday. My skin feels and looks much better already and it makes me so much happier.

I just want to say that I am delighted with the work Joyce did yesterday. My facial skin definitely looks more hydrated and I think I look less haggard, my eyebrows are better than I have ever seen them, and my hands, feet and nails also look really good.

Thanks very much, it was a great Mother’s Day gift.

Thank-you for doing my wedding make-up, I thought I’d write you a quick note to say that it still looked great at the end of the night.

Dear Joyce and Hailey
I just wanted to say thank you very much for the beautiful hair and make up you did for my wedding, we all had a lovely time getting ready in the morning.

Thanks again

Hi Joyce,

Just wanted to e-mail you to say a BIG thank you for all you done for me and the girls on my wedding day last week. You were fantastic, the make up was great, I didn’t have to apply or touch anything up all day or evening, apart from a bit of lip gloss. I’m so glad me and my sister made the decision to opt for a professional and considering we hadn’t met till the day we all felt very relaxed and taken with you.

Dear Joyce,

The wedding was fantastic and so was Hayley , she stayed calm through out all the confusion and noise I am surprised she could concentrate with six of us all in one room and everybody else that was popping in and out she was a real star the girls were all very happy with the hairstyles and they stayed in all day and night , brilliant Thank you so much.

Brides and Beauty were absolutely fantastic. They made me feel and look so beautiful for my big day.

I was very impressed by the service provided by Joyce and her team. From advise prior to the wedding to the fantastic makeup and hair on the day. Joyce was always on hand for calming words and I feel her presence and confidence help ease any of my post wedding jitters.

Joyce really looked after me the day before my wedding, some decent grooming and pampering was exactly what i needed and Joyce came up trumps, as always. Joyce also sorted me out with facials and trial nails on the lead up too!

Joyce made me feel really special and was really friendly. I thought the trial at home was excellent.

This Was A Joint Wedding. B&B Accommodated Both Brides Even Though Only I Was Her Customer – B&B Were Fantastic And Gave Great Advice To Improve Hair And Beauty Prior To The Wedding Day.

Hayley was fantastic. It felt like I had know her for years. She helped make me feel very relaxed when doing my hair and made my bridesmaids look gorgeous especially my 15 year old cousin who is very punk, she didn’t look like the same girl!

Both Joyce and Hayley were brilliant on the day. Kind and helpful and very calming to a flower crisis! Couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

Fantastic. Made me feel so relaxed and calm about the day. Would definitely use again!

Brides and Beauty were absolutely fantastic on my wedding day. Joyce was an absolute pleasure to work with and I just cant thank her enough. I looked absolutely stunning on my wedding day and Joyce’s talents meant that the photos were also fantastic. Joyce’s level of service went far beyond what I expected, as she stayed later and helped me get into my dress. I just cant recommend Brides & Beauty highly enough!

Brides and Beauty were absolutely brilliant. Hayley did my hair and she was wonderful really friendly and made me feel very relaxed on the day.

In July I hosted a ‘Facial & Fondue’ evening at my house which proved to be a great success! Joyce arrived with her gear at around 6.30pm and set up in the lounge ready for a queue of ladies desperate for a bit of pampering …

In the course of the evening, Joyce gave 5 ladies and my brother a complete Dermalogica facial which included a close inspection of their skin with her ‘magic goggles!’ Joyce was able to tell all sorts of things about our diets and lifestyles just through looking at our skin and gave us all some great advice on ways to improve our health!

Each of us found it to be a very interesting and very relaxing experience which will definitely have to be repeated soon. By the end of the evening my lounge was full of lots of contented, relaxed people, with glowing faces that felt silky soft.

To Joyce,

Thank you for taking some of the pressure of my wedding day, it was fantastic not having to worry about my make up and nails on the day. And thanks to your advice and regular facials I looked and felt amazing. Everyone commented on how radiant I looked, all the hard work paid off!

And my manicure and pedicure lasted all honeymoon, even after snorkeling every day.

You are a STAR!!!

All my love and continued custom,

Dear Joyce

I just want to thank you for the excellent facials that you carried out before my wedding and thanking you for making me look so special on that wonderful day.

Thank You

Hi Joyce,

I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed you pampering us on Sunday (Wiltshire); All of us agreed that it made the weekend. It wasn’t just that the treatments were great, we really enjoyed your company as well. I’ve passed your web-site details onto Helen and Bridgete, so I hope you get some more bookings out of it too. I hope that your journey home on Sunday evening was easier than your journey down.

Have a great Christmas; I’ll be in touch in the New Year.

Thanks again,
