Hi. Nice to 'meet' you. I'm Manisha. If you're reading this, there is a good chance that you are a bride and days until your wedding day are slowly passing by. So before it is too late, you are looking to work with someone who will truly take care of you on your wedding day and ensure that you look flawless.
I understand that this is once in a lifetime moment to look perfect. All other days we can maybe come up with a reason why not to look our very best but on your wedding day there can be no compromises. My first promise to you is that I will not compromise and I will not let you compromise when it comes to looking absolutely breathtaking that day.
My second promise is that instead of compromising, I will be by your side, listening to any desires and special wishes you may have and then together we will create a look which will simply make everyone in the audience smile as you walk down the aisle.
But before we take this any further, I believe in transparency so allow me to tell you a litte bit about myself. I come from the UK and I've been in the beauty industry for over 12 years. During this time I was 1 of 10 first makeup artist to be accredited in the UK as an Asian Bridal Specialist by MAC Cosmetics where I was also a product specialist and internal trainer for 10 years.
In terms of other acomplishments I have been a national multi-award-winning bridal hair and makeup artist – for 3 consecutive years as well as being Awarded Outstanding Woman in Professional Services of the Year – By East Midlands Women Awards.
I take pride in being a part of a brides big day. I want to bring out the best in themselves. Furthermore, my techniques constantly evolve because I strive to deliver the highest standard of service and experience. My brides are a testament to my values.
My final promise is that you will not be subject to what is a fear (and a reality) for many brides after they hire a makeup artist which is that they almost have a wedding look forced upon them by a makeup artist who thinks what you "should" look like instead of the look actually matching your desires and your personality. If we decide that we're a good fit and work together, this will not be the case.
I'd like to say a massive thankyou once again!!! I can't explain how happy I was which each and every look you created for me. From my pre wedding photoshoot look, to my wedding day hair and makeup, you truly listened and took time to find out exactly what I wanted and explained step by step how you could help create my dream looks.
I was extremely conscious about my dry skin on my face and angular cheilitis around my lips, and was worried makeup wouldn't be able to cover that up. I was assured and assisted by you throughout the whole process and you gave me useful advice and tips on how to prep my skin before the days of the events. You put my mind to ease through our trail day, where you created a perfect look for me.
Manisha is a professional, reliable, friendly and efficient hair and makeup artist who can meet your expectations and more. She is very experienced and trustworthy so you can count on her for any look you desire. I was complimented by so many for all the different looks that Manisha gave me for my big day. I am so glad I chose her over all the other artists out there - she really made my day special!
Manisha is honestly the most friendliest hair and mua I've met. I have never had the best experiences when getting hair and makeup done. There's always something that I feel they didn't listen to me or they said they could do but can't or I ended up thinking I just don't have the features to look nice like the women in other pics. So, when it came to booking for my wedding, I was so worried but Manisha made me feel instantly comfortable. She knew in her mind what would make me look amazing more than I did. I let her work her magic and it was the best choice I made. I felt beautiful. My makeup didn't budge and neither did my hair. She is relevant, kind, understanding and actually listens to your likes and dislikes. Thank you, Manisha, for making me feel beautiful on the best day of my life.
Having Manisha as my makeup artist was one of my best decisions during wedding planning. She is professional, trustworthy, reliable and fantastic at what she does. On my wedding day Manisha arrived on time and calmed me down throughout the morning. Her makeup artist skills are incredible, and she is the one and only person I think of when I need my hair and makeup done. Thank you so much Manisha for getting myself and my mum ready for my wedding and reception. As a person you are a pleasure to talk to, and as a makeup artist you are simply the best. Wishing you all the best of luck always.
Looked flawless! My hair and makeup looked amazing and lasted the whole day! Even after sweat and tears!
Manisha was punctual and supportive. I felt comfortable telling her how I wanted to look and it exceeded my expectations! I literally cannot get over how I looked!
I have been and will continue to recommend Manisha to friends and family.
I will also most definitely book Manisha again for all future events!
I booked Manisha for my wedding day and I couldn't have been happier. I don't wear a lot of make-up so I was worried about being made to wear too much but Manisha listened to exactly what I wanted and delivered on the day. She has a lot of skill and knowledge on the art which shows through her work. Not only that, she's a lovely person to have around on your special day!
I will be recommending Manisha to anyone who needs a make-up artist
Manisha was just amazing from start to finish. My mum and I felt so special on the day and the compliments were never ending! We have never had make up done professionally before so it was all a new experience for us, but Manisha was brilliant with making sure we felt at ease. She was very responsive considering the time frame and knew exactly what sort of looks we both wanted. She was reliable, down to earth and just a pleasure to be around. You can tell she is passionate and loves doing what she does! I would recommend Manisha to anyone who wants to feel as special as I did
I used Manisha for my hair and make up for my Civil and Indian wedding. She was extremely professional and listened to exactly what I wanted. Needless to say, I felt amazing on both days! She was calm and reassuring - exactly what you need at this time. I would definitely recommend her
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for everything. From the moment of enquiring to the end of my wedding occasions you have provided so much support and the best service. I knew from the moment of enquiring that I wouldn't need to look anywhere else. I'd seen how fabulous your work was and also the quality of service and information given on the initial contact, made me realise I'd be making the right choice. You always provided in depth detail in each of our discussions/messages, saving the need for back and forth messages right from the start. This made me realise again that you knew exactly what you were doing, providing reassurance and confidence that I could count on you. I felt that you always listened to what I wanted and gave the right advice where needed. You were kind, approachable and honest from day one, which is really important for someone to feel comfortable when allowing you to be part of their big day. You were able to create the exact looks I'd hoped for, if not better. So thank you again for everything and making me feel so special on my big day/events. I would always recommend you to anyone who would ask about hair and make up, because you made my vision come true of what I'd imagined I'd look like. Couldn't thank you enough.
I met Manisha at a wedding fair and her personality and knowledge on makeup is what made me book a trial for my wedding. I was very nervous with the trial as I always struggle to match a foundation colour to my skin without looking either too pale, too dark or orange. Manisha matched my skin tone to perfection using a mixture of shades to create my tone! I would highly recommend Manisha to anyone who is looking to get married. Manisha not only glammed me up but she made me feel relaxed and calm on the day. The first person you see on your wedding day is your makeup artist and I'm so glad that was Manisha with her amazing friendly personality. I still, till this day, get so many compliments on my wedding day looks. I can not thank Manisha enough!!
From the wedding ceremony to the reception night, Manisha met my expectations at a 110%. I wanted a natural/sophisticated look for the morning and and a vibrant look in the evening and Manisha was able to create both looks at an exceptional standard and in record time which gave me an opportunity to relax a little prior to each event. I would highly recommend Manisha to any bride to be!
