'I spent a lovely, relaxed afternoon with Bob (Amanda) for a makeup lesson, having felt I was stuck in a rut, Bob gave me some great tips & advice to suit my age & style, she made me feel very comfortable in her company & easy to talk to.
I would highly recommend Bob to anyone who feels they would like a makeup lesson or just needs some professional advice.'
Carrot Guest, Lambourn 2020
'I searched online for a makeup artist for my wedding & came across Bob (Amanda),
We talked on the phone & she clearly explained her prices to me then we met for a makeup trial.
I don't wear much makeup normally & I was nervous about not looking like myself on my wedding day. Bob really liostened to me & only applied as much makeup as I was comfortable with. She got it absolutely spot on! My makeup looked incredible & lasted the whole day. Not only is she a wonderful makeup artist, she is also an incredibly lovely person who I really enjoyed meeting & would highly recommend.'

'Bob is a warm and friendly professional with whom I instantly felt comfortable. She listened to my preferences on the style of makeup I would like and the views of the members of my bridal party. I truly feel that this enabled me to be the best (and honest) version of myself that I could be on my wedding day. Bob offers good rates for makeup trials and we had a good laugh, again making me feel relaxed with someone I would need to spend quite some time with on the morning of my wedding!!
Bob was punctual and well organised and was a welcome addition to the madness of that morning! I would highly recommend her.'
Kerry Halstead, Farringdon 2019
'For our outdoor wedding the brief was that I didn't look like I was wearing a lot of makeup, still look like myself & also look nice in the photos! After an initial trial, in the comfort of my own home, Bob listened to absolutely every weird request I had whilst also sharing her knowledge & recommendations on what would work best. Bobs range of products was incredible & we created a look that was perfect for our wedding. I could honestly not recommend Bob more highly!
On the day, nothing was too big an ask from what time to arrive to small tweaks to the look. Bob is so absolutely professional but equally so relaxed - she really puts you at ease. I always felt I was in such good hands, which is exactly what you want on such a special day.'
Jojo Bowles, Bath 2019
'Bobs work is amazing! She really understood the look I wanted & my makeup lasted all day- I can highly recommend Bob!'
Sarah Cox 2018
'I had such a lovely experience of Bob doing my makeup for my wedding. I had a makeup trial where I had taken a few photos of looks that I liked & we went from there. She took her time to get the look I loved & I felt as though I coud be really honest with her. On the day of my wedding, she just felt part of my gang, got on with it & made everyone feel really comfortable. Bob really did go the extra mile & she did an amazing job of making me look & feel great.
Thank you x'

'Brilliant! - Bob is a lovely lady, she made me look fabulous for my wedding. We did a trial which was fun, as well as showing me different looks, & on the day she was great, she really put me at ease. Bob was great at helping me organise my bridesmaids & the chaos around me. She made me feel like she had it all under control (she would make a brilliant wedding planner!).
Bob is a real artist, she takes time looking closely at her work perfecting it along the way...She even holds her makeup brushes like an artist! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.'
Emma Bennett, Oxford 2018
'Bob was a fantastic makeup artist for myself & 3 bridesmaids. She understood exactly what I wanted & had a lovely range of top brands & products to choose from. She offered a trial so I had an idea of what I would look like on the day & despite not having met my bridesmaids prior to the day, she did a fabulous job of making them all look beautiful! She was so much fun to have around in the morning as well - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services!'

'Well what can I say...Firstly, appologies it has taken me so long to write to you but 'wedding over' blues were holding me back! Anyway I wanted to send you a note to say thank you sooo much for the amazing job you did for my hair & makeup plus the bridesmaids , mums & Chloes.
As you both know I had no idea what I wanted & am totally unable to do my hair or makeup on a normal day - so with my lack of help the end results from you both were amazing!
Not only did we look fab, you made us feel so relaxed, comfortable and it was like you were part of our wedding party & you just happened to be doing our hair & makeup.
Everyone commented on how fab we looked, Chloe was beaming all day with her special hair & little bit of makeup. Plus my dad cried when he met us at the bottom of the stairs in the hotel & he had already seen my dress as his wife was doing the alterations - he didn't cry at my first wedding so that was a bit of a shock & as you can imagine set us all off! Thanks for the top tip of bending over & looking down...no makeup runs before we had even left the hotel thankfully!
But seriously, I cant thank you enough. I really do hope you continue to do what you do & work together, you are a great team...' Natalie W. 2016
'I used Bob for my wedding a couple of months ago & what a great experience I received! As bride to be & mother of the bride, we would just like to say how professional & relaxed we felt with Bob doing our make-up for the trial & the actual day.
I felt I needed to put into words how fantastic her part was in our special day...
I consider myself very fussy when it comes to my make-up but even on the trial day she made me feel like a million dollars. Nothing was too big or small & she even went out of her way to pin button holes to the father of the bride & the page boys when everyone was stressing out - what a star!
I could not recommend Bob highly enough - from my personal perspective, any special occasion in the future years to come she will be getting a call from myself & my mum. Loyal customers from now on!'
Emma & Diane. Newbury 2017
'Bob provided the perfect look for my wedding day. I wasn't sure having never had my make-up done professionally before, if I would be comfortable with the process. From the moment I met Bob for the trial, she alleviated my worries and I was soon excited about having my make-up done. She is friendly, professional and has a wide range of makeup to create just the look you want. Bob fit seamlessly into our busy morning of preparations and made sure I looked beautiful on the most important day of my life and I really am glad I chose her to do my make-up.'
Michelle W. 2017
'As the mother of the bride it was important to me for my daughter to have people around her on her special day that she and the rest of the bridal party felt comfortable with. Bob has an approachable and friendly manner which immediately puts you at ease. She was great at keeping us calm and even helped when things went missing!
She provided a professional service which all the bridal party were delighted with. She listened carefully to our ideas and provided us with the perfect look so the bride & bridesmaids felt they looked their best.
On the day, family and friends commented on how beautiful and natural they looked. We could not have asked for more.'
Annette G. Wantage 2017
'I was very nervous about getting my make-up done for my wedding as I'm very particular and have had bad experiences in the past, however when meeting Bob she settled those nerves straight away, not only is she a lovely person but she is very professional and knowledgeable. Before the wedding day we had a trail and went through loads of ideas until I was happy with the look I was after, she has a huge selection of make up to go through which is great to experiment with. Having her there on the wedding morning was great she is good fun and settled those wedding nerves.I was so happy with my make up it looked lovely and natural and lasted all day even through the days tears. I even learnt a few make up tips from Bob along the way. I would recommend Bob highly and would definitely use her again.' Gemma W. Newbuy
'I can't thank you enogh for the time & effort you put into us for our big day! I would recommend you to anyone and everyone. As someone who doesn't really wear makeup on a regular basis, you made me feel at such ease & I was so happy with the way the final look turned out, as well as the attention also paid to the other members of the wedding party. It was clear how good a job you had done when I saw the tears of joy on my new husbands face. Thank you so much!!
Kim Sears, June 2017
'I was lucky enough to have Bob do my wedding make-up in September 2014. She was recommended to me by a couple of people locally who said she was fantastic - and she was!
Bob was able to do a trial for my mum & I a few weeks before the big day which went really well. We instantly felt comfortable with her and were so impressed with the huge collection of high quality products she brough along. She really listened to what we wanted & was willing to try as many times as necessary to get it just right. It didn't take long at all, to get to that point though - & the results were amazing. It's lovely that she tells you what she's doing & why, at every stage so you are able to learn from it as well.
On the actual day I was a bag of nerves but Bob has a wonderful way of keeping a fraught bride calm! She really helped me to relax & enjoy myself.
It was an absolute pleasure having Bob there on my wedding day morning - I would recommend her to anyone looking for the perfect bridal experience.'
Laura Alsworth, Wantage.
'I was so pleased with my wedding make-up! Bob is a superb make-up artist, I cannot recommend her highly enough. Having never had my make-up done by anyone before & it was most definitely the best thing I did! Bob made my foundation look flawless & eye make-up simply perfect. She uses a range of high quality brands, so my make-up lasted all day & was one less thing I had to think about.
Bob came to my house for a make-up trial & then to the venue on the morning of the wedding to do myself, my mother-in-law & two bridesmaids. Bob is confident in her work, she listened to the kind of look we liked & made it such a lovely experience. I continue to use the same products she used & recommended to me.'
Marsha Senior, December 2016
'Bob did my make-up for both my family wedding & our larger celebration in London. Bob is very easy to work with, we did a trial first where I worked with Bob to pick out the right colours to work with my colouring & also the colours of my dresses & Bob stopped at various points to check I was happy so far. Bob was relaxed about changing anything if I needed it as she wanted it to be perfect for my big day(s). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Bob & would certainly book her again for any future events.' Tamsin Naseem, Oxford. January 2016
'Book Bob Bradley for a make-up lesson! That's all I can say.
Having struggled to figure out what suits me & how to go about creating the daytime or more striking evening look for special occasions, after one session with Bob I am now finally on the way to wearing make-up with confidence.
Over the years I have spent a fortune on the top brands in various colours & they are not wasted. Bob helped me to understand how to use the content of my make-up bag in the right way, so, I went out the following day to buy the brushes, & now I will blend, blend, blend! Thank you so much Bob for a wonderful evening & for giving me back my confidence in putting make-up on. Mette Bradfield xxx' November 2015
