THE WEDDING INDUSTRY AWARDS 2016 – VOTERS COMMENTS

jenn-edwards-national-finalist-north-east-regional-winner2015-12-11 15.12.26A few words for our Brides, after having mopped away the tears…..

Thanks to you we did it again!  We won Best Wedding Makeup Artist of the North East Region for the third year running at The 2016 Wedding Industry Awards.  We were also finalists for Best Wedding Hairstylist of the North East Region.

This means so much to the three of us and, right now, I just can’t find the appropriate words to explain how I feel reading your comments.  Perhaps Overwhelmed, overjoyed, and maybe just a tad bit sad too cause it makes me want to give you all a big squeeze and I can’t.  I’m thankful for social media because It offers the opportunity to follow many of you on your journey through life – the honeymoon, the new house, the new job, exciting announcements….. It’s such a joy and makes us feel less sad when we have to say our goodbyes, as we wave you off on your way to your ceremony.  We’re very grateful to all of you that have kept in touch and for your kind words and support with the awards, along with the cards and gifts we’ve received in the post.  I know I say it every time but we’re the lucky ones, and we have the best job in the world, so it seems strange to receive so much gratitude.

This year ‘The Wedding Industry Awards’ have allowed voters to leave their name against their comments for the first time.  It has always been anonymous in previous years.  I’m so pleased they’ve decided to do it this way because each comment means even more knowing whom wrote it.

You’ve mentioned that having us there with you on the day was just like having extra family members or friends, and we can echo those comments.  We’ve certainly felt that we’ve been amongst good friends and have enjoyed celebrating with you and sharing those special moments.

I thank you all from the bottom of my heart and wish you all the love and happiness in the world!

Jenn and her team were absolutely amazing from start to finish, keeping in contact, arranging trials and our hair and make up on the day. I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted and neither were both our Mums and Bridesmaids, however Jenn and her team were so patient, trying lots of different styles and make up until we were completely satisfied. Not only was the service first class but the girls were like family on the day and really made the experience special.

Mrs Gemma Ole’s

Jenn and her team made the day perfect. When I had the trial, straight away they knew what I wanted and what would suit me. On the actual day, they made us all look the best we have ever looked and they went above and beyond their role to ensure that we were all ready and that the morning did not go without a hitch. They did not only ensure that the 5 girls that paid looked perfect but also helped me get dressed and helped the groom with his hair. their work is outstanding

Mrs Kimberley Meakins-Brown

Jenn and her team were fantastic both on the wedding day and in the build up. Communication was always quick and friendly, and on the day they were there at the venue before me! Jenn and her team very easily understood what both myself and my bridesmaids did and didn’t want when it came to our hair and makeup without much explanation – they just got it, which was fantastic and made the whole thing stress-free. Fantastic overall, was great having them as a part of our day.

Mrs Lisa Miles

Jenn and the team made us all feel very relaxed on the day and we all enjoyed the ‘getting ready’ experience.

Mrs Jane Marriott (Lambert)

Jenn, Lauren and Natalie were outstanding from the second they arrived until the moment they waved me off to church. Their expertise, knowledge, experience and overall lovely welcoming personalities made getting ready with my bridesmaids the highlight of my wedding day. My six bridesmaids, mum and I were blown away by the fantastic hair and make up that they blessed us with. I would recommend Jenn and her team to all of my friends and couldn’t praise them more highly.

Mrs Alice Williams

Jenn is a true professional and very lovely. It was a pleasure to have her with us on the morning of our wedding and we all felt like film stars the entire day.

Jenn Edwards and team were a joy from the moment I first contacted them. Everything about the trial and make up on the day was just perfect and we all enjoyed the process and absolutely LOVED our final outcomes. We laughed throughout and Jenn and her team ensured everyone was really happy with the result. I could not recommend these ladies enough and if I could score them 11/10, I would! They deserve much success and any future bride is lucky to have this awesome team on the day.

Dr Deenah Morton (Osman)

From the moment of first contact with Jenn I knew she was very professional and very personal, she did a fantastic job at the wedding hair trial, really listening to what I wanted and using her creative abilities to turn my ideas into a gorgeous hair style. On the day she was very prompt, put us all at ease and really made my wedding morning memorable, I have never felt so beautiful with how she did my hair, I had so many comments abouts how gorgeous my hair looked! I’d recommend her to anyone!

Mrs Joy Bishop (Speed)

Jenn & Natalie were so friendly and professional on both the trial day and the wedding day itself. It felt like they were friends who I had known for years. They listened to all our suggestions and ideas, and created such gorgeous hair and make up. They made us all feel so beautiful and pampered. They also helped me to feel relaxed on such a nerve- wracking day.

Mrs Kate Pearson (McMillan)

The team at Jenn Edwards were simply faultless. Their knowledge and application of makeup meant it was one aspect of the day I didn’t even think about – I trusted them totally to get it right – and they did.

Mrs Tracey Sandham

As someone who doesn’t normally wear make up I was a little apprehensive to being done up at first, but after the trial I knew I was in safe hands. The fresh/pink romantic style I was after was understood straight away. I was able to discuss with her what I liked and what I wanted changing, and nothing was too much trouble to get the look I was happy with. On the day I was made to feel at ease, and I got so many comments of how stunning my make up was, I felt amazing, and it lasted all day.

Mrs sarah baxter (bickham)

I knew instantly that Jenn and Natalie were the right stylists for me and my wedding party. The website is clear and easy to navigate, gorgeous photos and very up to date. Jenn fab with communication, never did I have to chase her. On the day both Jenn and Natalie were AMAZING!! They are both so talented and so professional. Even my mother in law, who normally wears no make up felt completely at ease, and looked a million dollars! They are very worthy winners in my eyes!

Jenn and her team conducted themselves professionally yet it was like were were with good friends on the day. They looked after us from the moment they arrived and my only regret was that they had to leave. They deserve all the success in the world.

Jenn was professional and calm during our wedding morning preparations. She knew exactly what we all needed and made sure we were all ready at exactly the times that we needed to be. She has a real natural talent and creative flair, and an ability to get along with anybody and make people feel at ease in her presence. After my trial I had complete confidence that Jenn would make me feel amazing on my wedding day morning – and she did!! She also helped me to get into my dress in record time 🙂

Mrs Sarah Waines

Jenn & her team were a wonderful addition to my wedding. I definitely felt in safe hands. She was professional, friendly & easy to deal with. I felt she understood the look I wanted & was able to translate it to suit me. On the day, Jenn and team bonded with the bridal party & remained calm throughout, ensuring each bridesmaid was happy with her individual up-do (no mean feat!) I was thrilled with the end result! So many people commented on my hair and the makeup stayed put all day & night.

Mrs Claire Langron

Jenn and her team are the most fantastic girls to work with, from my enquiry through to the wedding morning, I couldn’t have chosen a better team to get me and my girls ready. We all agreed that we felt beautiful, like the absolute best possible versions of ourselves on the day, all thanks to the amazing work of Jenn’s team making us look glammed up yet natural at the same time. Jenn’s team are also so much fun to be around, yet amazingly efficient and professional. Very deserving of this award!

Mrs India Woof

I have scored Jenn 10/10 for every category. Being a lawyer, I am very critical so these are not “easy 10’s”, Jenn and her team thoroughly deserve each of them. I cannot praise them enough for their work and for how friendly and helpful and kind they were on my wedding day. They were calm and fun and nothing was too much bother. They were more than happy to go beyond the call of duty and made the start to my day so much more enjoyable than it would have otherwise been. Worth every penny.

Mrs Emily Friend

Jenn, Natalie and Lauren could not not have been more lovely and I would not hesitate in recommending them to family and friends. They were extremely patient with me and completely unphased by the number of different options we had to try before I was happy! Natalie is a fantastic make up artist – she really does have a magic tough. Both my make up and that of my five bridesmaids perfectly complemented our skin tones and was extremely natural which was exactly what I wanted.

Mrs Catherine Skelton (Boddie)

Jenn and her team are not only amazing artists but also lovely people. They are very passionate about their work and they put everything to give the best customer satisfaction.

Mrs Manasi Peters

Jenn, Natalie and Lauren were incredible on the wedding day. They not only made me feel like a million pounds but also did the hair of 9 bridesmaids with military precision. Nothing felt rushed and everyone loved their hair! I would recommend Jenn to everyone.

Mrs Sophie Houghton

Jenn and her team were outstanding. They were very professional and made my wedding day unforgettable. The made everyone feel comfortable and they stayed for as long as it was required until everyone got ready so there was no time pressure. Incredible team, they all work really well together. Absolute professionalism. They use high quality make up brands which lasted all day and night!

Dr Irina Zacharcenkova

Jenn was an utter joy to deal with from start to finish – from patiently helping me source new fixings for a problem fascinator at my trial (and invaluable glue-gunning assistance on the wedding morning) to her super-calm presence on the day, excellent (and at times hilarious) taste in music as we got ready and willingness to stick around and help get me into my dress, I couldn’t have asked for more. I’ve always been very self-conscious but Jenn made me look and feel amazing. She’s a superstar!

Miss Claire Monkhouse

Natalie was an excellent and professional make up artist. I loved my make up and it’s exactly what I wanted, natural and elegant and I owe that all to Natalie, I especially loved my fake lashes. Natalie was very friendly and I felt very comfortable with her instantly. All my friends gave me compliments on how stunning and beautiful I looked and I thank Natalie and Jenn from the bottom of my heart.

Mrs Jennifer Cheung

I was absolutely thrilled with my make up on my wedding day, it stayed on amazingly well despite a very windy day! Natalie was so lovely during my trial and spent time deciding what would best suit my skin tone. She had a huge range of make up available and even had airbrush make up which I ended up having on my wedding day. I can’t thank her enough for making me feel like a princess on my special day.

Mrs Rosie Clark (Riley)

Jenn & her team were amazing with all the hair & make up on my wedding day. I booked 18 months in advance & from day 1 Jenn was always there to offer advice & support. And was extremely accommodating when members of the wedding party changed their minds about their hair or make up. On the day we all looked stunning for the whole day & Jenn worked with us to give us a look we wanted whilst offering expert suggestions also.

Mrs Laura Birch

I really had no idea how I wanted my hair when I went for my trial but Jenn somehow knew exactly what I wanted without me even knowing. Jenn took the time to get to know my style and then created something that I loved. My hair and my 9 bridesmaids hair looked beautiful and her, Natalie and Lauren created a lovely atmosphere on the morning.
Mrs Sophie Houghton

Jenn and the team listened to what we wanted and were able to create hairstyles that suited all of us and lasted all day.
Mrs Jane Marriott (Lambert)

Jenn and her team did an amazing job with my hair and make up. It was exactly how I imagined it ! They are absolutely fantastic and I will definitely recommend them to my family and friends.
Mrs Manasi Peters

Jenn & Natalie were both so professional and friendly on both the trial and the wedding day. They listened carefully to our suggestions, and created beautiful hair which surpassed our expectations. They helped me to feel relaxed and pampered on a nerve- wracking day. The end result was amazing and I would definitely recommend their services to anyone.
Mrs Kate Pearson (McMillan)

I was amazed at how Jenn was able to look at a picture and then work my hair to produce the same style with no hesitation. She gave very good advice on helping me achieve the style I wanted, and suggested hair extensions to provide more bulk on top to allow the tiara to sit well. She also offered to come with me to buy the extensions to help me choose the right ones which shows how commited she is to making sure I was happy with my look. My hair stayed in style all day and looked & felt amazing.

Miss Claire Monkhouse

From the moment I contacted Jenn I sensed I was dealing with not only a consummate professional, but someone whose instinct it was to make others happy. It wasn’t just that she made my, rather unpredictable, wild, hair look beautiful (a massive 1100 likes on Facebook proves others agreed) On the day she delivered everything i expected and then still more. For those few hours Jenn became: my best friend, my sister, my counselor and my hair dresser extraordinaire – she really is beyond compare.
Mrs Tracey Chalmers

Jenn did my hair and let me tell you….. It was stunning. Some of my friends were taking photos of my hair to have something similar at their weddings next year! It was incredible, I couldn’t be happier. Jenn was is professional, punctual and organised. She was also a great fun and had an amazing playlist for getting ready! The whole team was just amazing. I will recommend them to all my friends because they are truly the best.
Dr Irina Zacharcenkova

I was soooo happy with my hair on my wedding day and had so many lovely comments! It stayed in amazingly well despite it being quite a windy day! Jenn was absolutely fantastic throughout my trial and did a few different styles as I was a little indecisive as to what I wanted! She was so lovely and patient and I couldn’t have asked for more support on the day, she even helped me into my wedding dress! I can’t thank Jenn enough for all her amazing work and I would recommend her to anyone!

Jenn was the perfect mix of skill, talent and flexibility. I was unsure about how I wanted my hair on my wedding day, Jenn was so supportive and didn’t push me for a decision, always helpful and reassuring. On the day Jenn was just amazing. With Jenn you get so much more than an amazingly talented hair stylist, you get an extra friend in the room. From adding in a panicking mother-of-the-groom without batting an eyelid, to making all the girls’ hair look runway ready, she is the perfect package.

Jenn did an amazing job of styling my hair for my wedding in September. She has such a natural talent for it, and made us feel and look great. Whats also nice is that you can tell how much Jenn and Nat enjoy their jobs, and so they’re both such a nice presence to have around you on your big day!

Jenn went beyond the call of duty helping me get dressed, put my shoes on and generally made the morning of my wedding day more enjoyable. I loved my hair, many people commented on it in particular, and it stayed looking perfect all day long.
Mrs Emily Friend

I have nightmare hair- never does what you want it to do when you want it to do it. Jenn was not fazed in the slightest & offered more than 1 trial with no extra cost just so I felt comfortable on the day. She spent hours trying look after look, considering my thoughts whilst offering her suggestions. And her suggestions came out bang on- I was a little nervous after the trial that I still wouldn’t like it but on the day I loved it!
Mrs Laura Birch

Jenn, Natalie and Lauren could not not have been more lovely and I would not hesitate in recommending them to family and friends. It was just like being amongst friends on the morning of the wedding.

I was a bit worried that we were running out of time with my bridesmaids towards the end, but Jenn completely pulled it off and they all looked amazing!
Mrs Catherine Skelton (Boddie)

Jenn’s team is truly amazing, they are extremely talanted, knowledgable and lovely people, who have such fantastic skills when it comes to hair. Amongst my bridesmaids there was all types of hair – long, short, straight, curly and even Afro. The team made everyone look beautiful and created such wonderful styles that suited us all.
