"What can I say about the wonderfully talented Colette and her team from CJ Beauty and Co.?

Firstly...WOW!!! Never have I met a make up artist who has been able to transform me (and my bridesmaids and our mothers) quite like Colette has. From the first hair and make up trial for our wedding, to my make up and hair for our engagement photoshoot to our wedding on 18th March 2017, Colette has worked her magic and used her expertise and knowledge about what would best suit my skin every step of the way. Throw in a few facials along the way to prepare for the day, I now only use products used by Colette during the facials - I love, love, love them they're that good!! I'll be back for more pampering with Colette.

Secondly...what a fun, friendly, professional, beautiful soul Colette is!! She made me feel so completely relaxed during every encounter we had. We've shared many stories, cups of coffees and laughs together. We clicked from the start and that is what is so important! I couldn't have asked for anyone better than Colette. I'm glad I took time out during my Swedish holiday back in early 2016 (and from watching the Eurovision singing competition) to research Basingstoke hair and make up artists for my wedding! I emailed queries to a few suppliers but none "drew me in" quite like Colette did.

On our wedding day we were complimented numerous times on how beautiful we looked - Colette and her team of talented artists truly transformed all of us. From "ugly ducklings" to beautiful princesses!!

Thirdly...CJ Beauty and Co have won numerous awards in the past (and will continue to do so going forward) and it's obvious why this is the case!! They're phenomenal!! You won't be disappointed.

I'd like to say the biggest Thank You to Colette and her team for being the best artists a girl could ask for. Everything ran like clock work on our wedding day and for the turnaround service in the evening! It was lovely having the option for Colette to come back in the evening to touch up my make up and hair so I could continue to party the night away and still look gorgeous! She was there on time with her kit of make up and hairsprays and made me up to the T! Our make up lasted all day and evening. We were made to feel so at ease on what is a relatively stressful day. And I had the most magical day because of it (amongst other things). Thank you so very much!!

I'll be back for more!
