I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you so much for all your help with mine and my Bridesmaids hair for our wedding. We had a truly amazing day, and wish we could do it all again this week!

I had so many comments from our guests on how lovely my hair looked, and that the Bridesmaids looked amazing too! It held really well, and I definitely felt like a Princess for the day.

Will be sure to send over some of the images from our photographer when they’ve been edited.



Dearest loveliest Katie,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the way you looked after me, my family and friends.

I can recommend to everyone just how talented, calming, wonderfully happy,soothing, fun and creative you are.

I felt so lucky to have found you for our very special day.

Dear Kate, Just to say a MASSIVE thank you for your part in making my wedding day so special.You were an absolute pleasure to have around when we were getting ready. You made my Mum look amazing and my sisters hair was gorgeous. Above all you made me feel like a million dollars! I really don’t think I could have been happier, you really nailed the look I was hoping for! I can’t wait to see the photos from David (Bostock) now! All the best and hopefully see you again soon.

“Hi Katie ,
I ve been wanting  to email you and thank you for doing my hair and makeup. My brothers wedding was beautiful and  you did too much of a good job because some people didn’t recognise me! You’ll probably hear from me for the next big event ! So till then,
Take care,

Hi Katie,

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your team for making my bridal party look so amazing. Everyone mentioned how lovely and friendly your team was and the makeup and hair really lasted through the day.

We finally have the official photos, and there are some lovely shots of the hair and make up here.

Hi Katie,

“Oh you were so wonderful, thank you so much!! Sorry it was a bit chaotic, but the girls looked absolutely beautiful, you did such a brilliant job, thank you.

I want to shout from the rooftop how amazing you are! ”

“Wow, what an amazing experience! I had a fantastic time on my shoot, I recommend everyone who is hesitant to have a go, and if you are not hesitant then book one quick because it will be even better than you think. The whole experience was very relaxing; Katie very quickly made me feel like a princess and, from my quick glances at some of the first images, look like one too. David and Katie listened to my ideas (using the Pinterest images “mood board” before the shoot really helped) and worked with them to ensure I came away with all the different looks that I wanted. The room was beautifully lit and combined with David’s fantastic attention to detail the images were superb.I can’t wait to work with them again on my wedding day, in fact I am not sure what I am most excited about – that or seeing my groom’s face when I present him with his gift! Working with the team at Ellie Sanderson has been great, they are all true professionals. Each of my experiences had made me feel it was about me and my day – not business. Thank goodness I popped in that morning!”

Dear Kate,

I wanted to say a huge thank you for doing my wedding hair and makeup on my wedding day. From the first moment we met you, you put everyone at ease making sure that we first all enjoyed the trial and then the day itself. All the girls had so much fun with you and Flossie. Thank you for keeping calm when it got a bit stressy at the end! 

I was so pleased with my hair and makeup, it made me feel very special and I think Nathan approved too! 

With very best wishes and luck for the future, Gaby xxx

Dear Katie, This is a little note to say thank you for doing my hair and makeup so nicely on my wedding day. It was wonderful to have someone so calm and flexible helping us get ready. The hair and makeup gave me real confidence and it looked lovely all day, despite riding in an open top car and doing some pretty wild ceilidh dancing! Thank you also for making my mum and sisters look lovely-but still true to themselves.I will keep your number for any future hair and makeup eventualities!


With best wishes,

Hi Katie,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for doing such an amazing job with the hair and makeup for our wedding last weekend. I had so many lovely comments and I felt so comfortable all day! The Bridesmaids looked great and Mummy and I were saying how amazing it was that our makeup lasted the entire day and night! I honestly can’t thank you enough! 


Dear Katie,

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for all your help in getting the girls ready. I really felt we received such a personal service, from the hair and makeup trial in your lovely studio, to the day itself. Thank you!

With love
