Don't take our word for it! Read our starlets' have been saying about their Hollywood Brides' experiences.
"Firstly I’m worried that my words aren’t going to do Hollywood Brides justice. I’m so happy I picked Hollywood Brides to look after me and my rather large bridal party of 7 bridesmaids, 4 flower girls and my Mum.
Please pass on a very big thank you to Mary, Prue, Amelia and Bec. They did awesome hair and makeup. Every single one of my bridal party looked stunning and I felt and looked like a Princess. My hair and makeup was exactly what I was after. I had so many complements on the day – I loved it. Pity I couldn’t get Hollywood Brides to do my hair and makeup every day. I can’t wait to share the wedding photos with you.
They are awesome. You had the timing spot on to do all our hair and makeup which helped me getting to the church on time. And thank you too Monique, you were so patient, professional and so easy to talk to. You answered all my emails so quickly and with dealing with so many wedding companies on a daily bases, I really appreciated it.Your website is awesome, full of information that every bride needs to know and I look forward to reading your newsletters. I have no hesitation in recommending Hollywood Brides. I have already recommended you to three of my co-workers that are getting married next year.
I’ll be seeing you guys for any other upcoming events."
"Thanks to you and Diane I felt like the most gorgeous bride in the world. Our photos came out great and I even looked beautiful right up until we arrived at the Gold Coast to start our honeymoon at about 12:30 on the Sunday morning! My Mum, bridesmaids and I all felt so comfortable with you and felt that you dealt with the little delays (on our part!) wonderfully. Thank you so much for being so patient with me. It must have been as difficult for you to get organized as it was for me, especially seeing as we had to leave all our appointments until the last week.Thank you again for your amazing professionalism, friendly service and most of all PATIENCE!!
Firstly, I wanted to thank both of you for my trial yesterday. I was so happy with the hairstyle - it was exactly what I was after, and the make up. Both of you were professional, yet friendly and made me feel very at ease (something that can be rare in the wedding industry!). I am looking forward to having Sarah weave her magic with all of us on the day! Thank you"
"Hi Filia, Thanks for doing my hair (for job interview). I got short listed and had to go back the next day, so I put a shower cap on and slept with my hair in. In the morning it still looked perfect. I ended up staying for three days as I got a final face to face interview. Everything looks set. I'm very excited. Lots of people commented on my hair too!"
Great website. I wanted to feel like a 'Hollywood Bride', so your business name grabbed my attention. …You were fantastic to deal with. So easy to talk to and professional. I felt very comfortable in your presence. I felt I could be completely honest with you both in my thoughts… I will be getting in contact with you mid year to have some hair extensions put in after I have this baby in April.
"I would like to thank you so much for the fantastic job you and Filia did for me and my bridesmaids! Everyone has commented on the fantastic hair and makeup (well the girls have, the boys just say "you guys look awesome"). We have had people use words like stunning, gorgeous, amazing and someone even said I looked like Barbie (as a kid I always wanted to look like barbie lol). I haven't received the photos yet but as soon as I do I'll send you some. Thanks again, you guys are awesome :) You are at the top of my highly recommended list."
"Thank you for arranging Mary to do our hair on Saturday. Thank you for taking our request at short notice and making all the necessary changes. I absolutely loved my hairstyle it stayed in place all night long, and my mum, nan and aunt loved their styles even with their short hair! Our ceremony was on 9 News Saturday for a Valentine's Day report."
"Thanks for sending the photos through. I am very happy with the work Sarah did for me on Thursday at my trial and am more excited now for my wedding. Thanks once again! "
"Thankyou so much for the amazing make up. I had so many people comment on how good it was. Thanks again"
"After the wedding which was such a wonderful day, my makeup was perfect, my hair was perfect, no panda eyes, no hair pins falling out, I woke in the morning (morning after) and my hair was still in place and my makeup had not smudged at all! Thanks to you guys, you did such a wonderful job on all of us! Everyone commented on my hair and makeup, also on the girls hair and makeup, soyour businesscards were sent out to those who wanted them, a few people didn’t recognise me as I looked different!... if I ever need you guys foranother makeover, you surely will hear from me! Thank you so much, keep in touch!"
"Thanks again for doing such a great job with our makeup - you are so good at what you do and we really appreciate you professionalism and kindness. I would recommend you to anyone who is getting married."
"Just want to say a very big thank you to you and your team for the excellent job they did with all my girls hair/makeup for my wedding. Everyone commented on how good it was and how it lasted the whole day no problems. Your girls are a credit to your business."
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Hollywood Brides for doing such a fantastic job on my wedding hair and makeup. Sarah and Filia were brilliant - the girls and I were so happy with our hair and makeup. It lasted all through the day and night - even after many hugs, kisses, crying and dancing! We received so many comments from friends and family on how beautiful we all looked. Thank you so much for being so professional - you always returned my emails and phone calls quickly, and Sarah and Filia were on time and so professional - we had so much fun getting ready. I would highly recommend you to anyone! Many thanks."

Thank-you so much for making me a beautiful bride - it was truly appreciated. Anywhos I just want to say thank-you once again and I will readily recommend you to ANYBODY that asks. Yours truly"
"Well i am back from the honeymoon and feeling very relaxed and am dreading the thought of going back to work. Just wanted to say thank you to you and Filia for making us girls look a million dollars on my wedding day. You made the morning very relaxing and full of fun and we all had the best day ever. I would have no hesitations in recommending you to future brides. Many thanks once again."
The wedding went perfectly, it was a very special day. My hair and make-up got rave reviews from everyone so thank you sooo much to you and Diane. Your kindness, patience and professionalism was outstanding and I hope to use your services again."

"...Renee and Filia were WONDERFUL! We were all very impressed with both hair and make-up, they really made us look and feel great. I also wanted to mention how their positive, happy attitudes/manner started our day off perfectly. Both Renee and Filia made us all feel comfortable and helped us (mainly ME) destress and enjoy the morning.It was nice to be able to joke around and have a laugh whilst getting ready, it definately helped me stay calm. We would all recommend Hollywood Brides to our friends and family for any event. Thank you very much for helping make our day so special. "
"Thank you for sending such a lovely girl to help me for my special occasion. My hair and make-up was amazing, she did everything exactly like I wanted, was so versatile and gave me the edgy look i was after. Thanks again for making the worst part of getting ready the most effortless and easy night."
"You did the most fantastic job of all of our makeup (we even had comments from males to say how well done the makeup was) ... Will definitely use your services again and recommend you to other people (Nino’s mum being in the wedding industry and all). Thanks so much"
"Hollywood Brides exceeded my expectations they were very professional and understanding. They really listened to my requests even though I was a bit painful. The highlight of my experience was the makeup and hair lasting, the helpful hints and just making us feel special. My kids (flower girls) actually thought you were from Hollywood... "
"Just a quick note. Went and saw Sam again today for an additional treatment and wanted to pass onto to you what a consistently pleasant experience meeting with her. A lovely, warm, friendly and fun lady, very knowledgable with a genuine pride in her work helping people. She's an all round gem!
"Your shots were fantastic I have the one with the girls and me as my desktop! Thank you again for all your hard work on the day and for sticking around to help out with the photos it was so nice to feel special for a day. I will have no problem mentioning your name when the occasion arises; you're very professional and fun. You made the stress of my day easier to cope with and all my girls thought you were fantastic. If I ever need makeup in the future or any of my girls get married we will definitely have no hesitation in calling you. Also I'm liking the make-up so if I need more I'll give you a call. Thank you again.
"The day was just absolutely beautiful, amazing. It just went off without a hitch. Thank you so much for your magnificent efforts you both put in, we looked absolutely divine. Thank you again."
Amanda Young (nee Rand)
"I wanted to thank you very much for the awesome job you did on Saturday. Our make up and hair lasted the whole day, considering the heat and the running around I was expecting to get home and look like a complete feral rat but we didn’t! Honestly we looked the same!...I couldn’t believe it, it was amazing. I really didn’t want to go for a shower and wash it all off. ...So many people commented on how nice we looked, so we where very pleased. Thanks again"
"The girls were brilliant! From the trial to the wedding day, they were wonderful. I couldn't have dreamt of a better result...I had no idea what hairstyle I wanted but my stylist managed to put together the perfect style, while the makeup artist did a fantastic job and was very patient with the interruptions from my daughter ...You were one of the few companies that I dealt with in the lead up to my wedding that actually responded and did what they said they would."
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and Di for the amazing work you created for our wedding day. Michael thought I looked amazing and the girls were fabulous as well. I will be recommending you to my friends and family. Thank you very much."
"Thank you for arranging for Renee to do my wedding makeup. Renee did such an amazing job on my makeup, I absolutely loved it….and of course everyone commented on it…..thank you sooooo very much for making my time sooooo simply relaxing and easy….was perfect!! Renee is such a lovely person also. We had the absolute best day of our lives for our Wedding Day, I wouldn’t change a single utter thing…our honeymoon (Hawaii, Mexico and Fiji) was absolutely fabulous also!! Its hard to come back to the real world now, but we are settling in well, feels like it was all just a dream now."

"I have previously had my hair and makeup done for special occasions with disappointing results and I was naturally apprehensive, but Diane promised me she would not let me down. She delivered on that promise. I found Diane and Monique to be prompt friendly and professional. I put myself in their hands for both my hair and makeup and was completely transformed and thrilled with the end results. It was the start of a wonderful day, both hair and makeup lasted all day, and right to the end of the night. I would recommended you to anyone without hesitation."

"Hi Guys! Just wanted to thank you so so much for doing the hair and make up for My 2 bridesmaids, my mum and myself!
We have received a lot of comments from friends and family, as well as our hair dressers on how fantastic we looked (my husband cried when I walked down the aisle!). I have no hesitation in recommending Hollywood Brides to people I know (even people I don't know!)who are getting married. We are so very grateful to have met you and I hope we can do business with you again... somehow!!!
Thank you so very much!!"
"Just wanted to let you know what a fabulous job you did at my wedding. I was very happy with my makeup and hair, very natural looking, just the way I wanted. My bridesmaids were also very happy.
I have seen the pictures from our photographer and it was
definitely worth while getting our hair and makeup done
Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for Saturday...you made me look and feel like a princess the professional photos I have seen so far look amazing...so I will send you a heap of photos when I get them through.
Thanks again...you made us all look beautiful."
"Hi Mon...I just wanted to thankyou so so so much for everything you did to make my big day wonderful. Not only were you professional and performed wonders with our tired but excited faces, but you did it with humour and fun. Getting ready was a wonderful start to a perfect day and it wouldn't have been as good without you. We looked and felt beautiful, just like stars.
Our hair and make-up were even better than we imagined. It brought me so much happiness to see my mum (who never wears make-up), feel and look beautiful and happy with her look. I will be recommending you to every girl I know that wants an occasion to feel gorgeous and have fun at the same time.
Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou."
"The Hair and Make-up...it was FABULOUS...they both lasted the whole day long. Thank you SO much for being a wonderful part of my special day and for helping make it a day to remember!!!!"
"Hi Monique... Here are some of the photos from the wedding of my makeup! It lasted all night and looked fantastic. You did the most amazing job...everyone loved their makeup and everyone received comments about how fantastic they looked."
"I want to say thank you for making me feel like a princess, everyone mentioned what a wonderful job you did. I will be recommending you to any bride I know!!!"
"Thank you so very much for getting back to me so promptly you have no idea how much I appreciate it after dealing with so many wedding related companies and how slack some can be... Once again, I am very happy with your work and what a fantastic job you both did on my make up and hair style... Thank you so much for your understanding and for everything you've done for me."
"First of all, I have to tell you that everyone told me how gorgeous I looked on my wedding day.My husband was speechless when he saw me, so a very big thanks to Hollywood Brides. You gals did an amazing job,I thought my sister and my mum looked absolutely beautiful.The makeup lasted all day even after a little crying and the hair styles stayed even after a lot of dancing.
Hollywood Brides made me; my mum and my sister look great on the best day of my life. The hair styles were amazing and so was the makeup.Again, thank you so much... you gals were absolutely brilliant."
Cheers Jas Kaur
"Thank you Hollywood Brides for giving me perfect make up, for my wedding day. The make up wasn't overdone or "caked on", yet it was able to withstand the events of the day including many tears and much dancing with just the slightest of touch ups!
Thank you for giving us the look we were after but mostly thank you for being able to perform your job in such and easy going and relaxed atmosphere. Nothing was a stress or hassle and it meant the day started as I wanted it to finish, calm, relaxed and having fun."
"Absolutely loved my hair and make-up. My biggest concern was my skin, but as the photo shows, I looked flawless - you rock!...
you made us all feel nothing was too much effort and you never seemed stressed or frantic which would've rubbed off on all of us, you were very down to earth which was reassuring."
"I absolutely loved what you did and the best bit was that I didn't have to say much at all. I felt confident enough to just let you do what you thought would look good and it did. The convenience of not having to go to a salon and having someone come to me was perfect, I didn't have to rush out anywhere on the morning, instead I was able to relax. I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you "
"You only have to look at the photos to see 'magic at work!!'. We all looked like Hollywood movie stars (flawless). You were very professional and arrived at the house before the bridesmaids and still did a great job! Thanks to you I will have photos that I adore and will show all generations to come, Thank you."
"Thank - you for your wonderful work on our special day. As you can see the girls and I looked a million bucks. The wedding all came together perfectly and we are now happy to be husband and wife.
After now returning from our honeymoon in Fiji we would like to thank you and Diane once again for all your support to help our day all come together. We are pleased to have chosen Hollywood brides as we received the best service ever and we are very happy to recommend your wonderful business to everybody we know."
Thanks again Stacey Orr
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you both and Hollywood Brides for making me and my girls look wonderful on my wedding day! You guys did such a good job, I loved my look so much that I wish I could look like that everyday!
You guys were easy going and fun to be around. I can't thank you both enough. Thanks again, I will have no hesitation in recommending you both to any Brides I come into contact with."
"This is just a quick note to say thank you for doing our wedding makeup! I looked fantastic (no drag queen in site) and lasted the whole day! Everyone commented on how it complemented our skin tones and looked stunning!"

"Monique was the Make Up Artist for my Wedding and what a fabulous job she did! I totally trusted Monique's recommendations as I am someone who does not normally wear make up at all! I just wanted to look glamorous on the day. I asked Monique to give me a smoky look just for something totally different. My bridesmaids, guests and especially my husband to be were speechless when they saw me.
I certainly made an impression as they had never seen me in make up before. I can honestly say that I found Monique to be a total professional throughout our dealings and enjoyed having her around on the big day. I would recommend her to anyone who like me has no idea about make up and is looking for professional advice and guidance. Thank you Monique for a truly amazing transformation!!!"
"Hi Monique, Thank you!! Where can I start, the girls & I had such an amazing morning & our makeup looked fantastic. You do such a wonderful job Monique, but I knew I was in for great service having been a bridesmaid for a bride who used Hollywood Brides. I knew when I started planning my wedding that makeup was the one thing I would not have worry about & you were the first thing I booked, no need to shop around! Thank you for being apart of our special day! I've uploaded a few photo's for you, the eyelashes look AMAZING and I can't thank you enough for the wonderful job you did for all of us! .
Thank you again!!"
"Hi Monique, Sorry for delayed reply, just getting back to reality after a divine holiday. Would be more than happy to give feedback and photos...
Myself, mum and sisters were so pleased with how our hair and make up turned out. We felt so relaxed with you and Mary. We gave you a little guidance, but, basically you created such a unique image for our makeup and hair for each of us. We got comments all through the day and night. I truly felt like a princess!
For me personally it felt like such an important decision to make to choose my hair and make up stylists, as, im a beauty therapist. I knew poeple would be expecting immaculate hair and makeup as I pretty much always put effort into that every morning!.
My choice to have "Hollywood Brides" do mine and my bridal party was a great decision and i wasn't disappointed. My eyelashes were the most amazing!""
"From the minute I phoned you, desperate to find a make up artist and hair stylist a month before our wedding, you made me feel relaxed and at ease. I then had my trial with Rina and Kay and had so much fun laughing and joking the whole afternoon. Both ladies made me feel confident, relaxed and excited about being a bride for the first time in the whole wedding planning process!
Thank you to you Monique for your patience with all my questions and queries leading up to the big day. And also thank you for adding my husband's Mum into the package so that she could be pampered on the day too!
On the day of our wedding Rina and Kay made us all feel very glamorous and sexy even when my beautiful sister Michelle gave me my "something borrowed" (the bracelet of my late Granddad's sister) to wear for the day and made me cry!! Kay was very understanding and comforting. I also loved seeing JA's Mum spoiled by having her hair & make up done too! She had a lovely time spending it with the "girls". A huge thank you to Kay & Rina and yourself for truly spoiling us and making us all feel a million dollars. HUGE kudos to Hollywood Brides!!"
