Linda did my hair and makeup for my wedding on Siesta Key. I had not selected hair style in advance and left it to Linda to suggest a style. She did an amazing job and gave me a classic and detailed upstyle that suited my dress perfectly. Her makeup was also amazing and looked great in the photos. Neither hair or makeup budged an inch despite some wind on the beach and even a little rain. Linda was also kind enough to come back to my hotel before the ceremony to help me into my lace up dress! She is such a warm and friendly person. Any bride lucky enough to be styled by Linda will look picture perfect!

Linda did my hair and make-up on September 6, 2014 for my anna maria island beach wedding and everything was perfect. I originally wanted to go with the airbrush due to it being on the beach and she assured me her make-up would be good. The tears during my ceremony had no effect on the beautiful work she performed. The 4 of us all had hair and make-up, she showed up on location on time and completed everyones look in the time frame she suggested. It was so much fun laughing with them and it really helped put my nerves to rest. I recommend her to any bride looking for hair and make-up on the special day.

Not having my hair styled or make-up applied on location before, I wasn't sure what to expect. Linda arrived with all of her supplies and greeted me with a big hug. She spent over 2 hours with me and we visited the entire time. She immediately put me at ease and quelled my nerves as I felt like I was talking to an old friend. I was leary about having a stylist other than my own style for hair for my special day, but I couldn't have been happier! By looking at pictures, she was able to capture the look I was going for. My make-up was breathtaking! I didn't even dream that it could look that natural. I only wish that I lived closer so that I could have Linda style me for all special events! Linda is a must have for your wedding day!

Linda was charm to work with. She quickly responded to emails and was very helpful. Being a destination bride I was nervous. On the day of the wedding Linda and Jane were prompt and got to work quickly. Linda helped calm my nerves by chatting and keep us entertained. My mom and friend looked amazing. My hair and makeup turned out exactly how I imagined and some. I almost cried when I looked in the mirror. My makeup lasted all night even in the heat which really impressed me. I truly recommend Linda and her team for makeup and hair. It was pleasure to have them share in our special day!! Thanks again Linda and Jane:)

My hair and makeup were absolutely perfect!! Linda arrived on the scene and immediately began performing her magic. She is so friendly, personable, and talented. My daughter and I both had our makeup and hair done and we were both BEYOND satisfied.

My wedding day was sunny and 94 degrees and our makeup and hair held perfectly all day and even during beach pictures and the reception.

Thanks to Linda, my wedding day was worry free. She promptly returned all phone calls, answered questions, and was so flexible and professional. Without any hesitation, I recommend A VICTORIAN BRIDE! ~ Jan ~

Linda and Marilyn were amazing! Linda did my three bridesmaids hair, our 6 1/2 year old's hair and my hair. Marilyn did make up for myself and two bridesmaids and my mom! All the girls looked amazing! I don't typically wear makeup or do my hair, and my now husband was initially unsure of needing someone to do make up and hair the day of the wedding, but after he saw us all, he was blown away!! Absolutely amazing!

Outstanding service!!! Victorian Bride exemplifies elegance in style and grace with the most expertise competence. Linda did amazing work and was absolutely wonderful to spend time with, particularly given some unforeseen challenges I faced before meeting with her (which had nothing to do with her, just life ~ yet her quality of empathetic responsiveness reduced my own stress). She provided a high quality of interpersonal relations beautifully matched by her artistically enchanting ideas congruent with her work. She is very flexible, fun and fully accommodating. She made the experience enjoyable and relaxing and I was thrilled with the photographs, thereby, demonstrating her astute awareness of how wedding imagery ay embody a storybook ambience. She'll discover and nurture the Bride in you!!!

Things with Linda started off a little rocky, we had a miscommunication initially and she came across a little gruff on the phone. But she came very highly recommended so I decided to proceed with hiring her. Once the day of the wedding rolled around, I could see why everyone I spoke with recommended her. She and Marilyn arrived on time to do hair & makeup for myself, maid of honor, MOB, and mother of the groom They set up and got right to work. Both were great at carrying on the conversation and Linda even gave me a little extra pampering because I had done too much celebrating the night before. We looked stunning once Linda finished with our hair and Marilyn finished our makeup! Everything lasted all night and in fact, my hair stayed in place through the rest of the next day as well.

Everyone looked so beautiful!!! Since I do not wear makeup normally my husband was a little concerned about my wedding day makeup, but when he saw me, he was absolutely amazed. My hair looked beautiful all day long and definitely held up very, very well!!! Linda did a great job combining the look of two hair styles that I liked! I could not have been happier with Linda & Marilyn's work.

I want to thank Linda and her staff from A Victorian Bride for everything on my wedding day. I had a destination wedding in Florida on Sanibel Island on the beach October 19, 2013. They came to me which was such a nice convenience. They did my hair and makeup as well as my bridesmaids and my mom. They were very professional and a lot of fun. My husband told me that he had never seen me look more beautiful than that day!!!! I can't tell you how happy that made me. Thank you again Linda for everything you guys did for all of us that day.

My Husband and I had been planning from the day we were engaged to get married in Venice, Florida. It didn't seem like it would be an easy task getting married abroad, how would we sort it all out? Eventually we found Sun Weddings and they helped us a great deal. When I asked about hair and make-up they suggested Linda at 'A Victorian Bride' so I got in contact via email. Linda was very quick to reply to all of my messages, she confirmed everything with me, and took everything that I said into consideration. She made me feel at ease with everything and made sure everything was in place. On the day of the Wedding Linda turned up, very happy and friendly. She fitted right in with everyone, and started on my hair. I felt comfortable with Linda straight away. She made me feel very calm about what was ahead, and treated me as if I was an old friend. She also got on very well with my two photographers, the Villetto's (also highly recommended!) Linda also did my Mum's make-up even though I hadn't booked my Mum in. My Mum doesn't wear a lot of make-up and she was worried, but when Linda had finished Mum said she was very pleased, Linda had listened to what my Mum had said and hadn't put too much make-up on, but just enough to make my Mum look more special than normal. When I looked in the mirror after Linda had finished my hair, and my make-up (I had the works - curlers in, false eye-lashes - it was great to be pampered!) I was astounded, Linda had make me look completely wonderful, I felt like a princess! Linda then even helped me and Mum get me into my dress. It was brilliant.
Linda/ A Victorian Bride, comes very highly recommended in my book. She was, professional, friendly and did an absolutely amazing job. If I need make-up or hair done again when I am in Florida, she will be the lady I call!

I just returned home to Illinois from my destination "wedding week" in Florida. I was referred to Linda by my wedding coordinator and I could not be happier that I chose her! Linda and her assistant traveled to the little cottage my bridesmaids and I were at that day which was a huge plus. We were able to relax all day with food and music while we all got our hair and make up done. Definitely helped keep my nerves at bay! Linda was so funny and easy to talk to, she fit right in. Linda and her assistant spent a lot of time on each girl; creating a unique look for each of us.
I was dead set on wearing my hair down for my beach wedding, but after feeling the wind at my rehearsal, I knew I'd have to have some of it put up or to the side. Linda created the perfect style for me and to this day is the only one I would trust to put my hair up! At the last minute, my girls and I decided to do flowers in our hair so Linda personally contacted a florist and had them deliver flowers to the cottage. So amazing! Another huge plus, our hair and make up lasted well into the next day, even with taking pictures down by the water. We all received tons of compliments on our eyes and hair in particular.
Thanks so much for making my day stress free Linda!

Linda is amazing, I didn't have her booked as my hairstylist that day. My original girl cancelled on me 4 hrs before my wedding. Linda was doing another bride's hair and makeup but had heard what happened to me and finished up her client and came to my suite to do mine. Amazing job this lady done and she really saved my day. I felt so beautiful and she made me feel so much better despite all the other things that happened that day. I would most definently use her service again.

Linda was great! I planned to just have her do my hair, but after speaking with her, I decided to have her do my makeup as well! We met for coffee a few days before my destination wedding and discussed what I had in mind, and I felt very confident when I left there that she would do exactly what I wanted. I absolutely loved the outcome of my hair and makeup. A friend of mine loved the way Linda did my hair so much that she saw the picture of me on my wedding day on facebook, printed out the picture, and brought it to her stylist in Pennsylvania to do the same hair style on her for her son's wedding. I can't recommend Linda enough! You will be so pleased with the result should you choose Linda to do your hair and makeup!

Thank you so much for making my sisters, my bridesmaids, and my mom look so beautiful for the wedding!

You took my vison of a "vintage" 50's look and made it work! Everyone loved their hair and makeup.

If you're getting married, call Victorian bride! They were on time, professional, and perfect in every way.

I had Linda do my hair and make up for my beach wedding and it turned out great, especially my makeup. It was perfect. Linda even offered to stay later to help me get into my dress and get ready for the ceremony because my mom was very late... She got my veil ready and would have probably stayed for awhile if I needed. I appreciated that and would definitely recommend her! She was a huge help and went above and beyond!

She is VERY flexible with her schedule which helped me a ton when it came time to do my trial as well as when she did my make up for our engagement pictures.

Linda rocks! She provides exceptional service and professionalism. My hair and make-up looked absolutely amazing on my wedding day, and I plan to recommend her to my friends getting married in the Sarasota area. She did an awesome job recreating the hairstyle I envisioned, and I was worried about my make-up looking too dramatic, but it turned out beautifully and transitioned well from day to night. I highly recommend her services.

I hired Linda to do hair and make up for myself and my MOH. From the second she came in the door of the hotel room it was like she was family! She called me the evening before and asked if we wanted her to make a starbucks run on her way over, if we needed her to stop and pick up anything etc. That was such as surprise, and so cool of her to do! Our hair and make up was perfect!! She even helped get me into my dress, and assisted my MOH getting into hers. She is a must have for your wedding day!! She is so calm, warm, down to earth, and as I said, it felt like we had known her for years from the moment she walked into the room! I cannot remember the name of the make up artist, but she is amazing!! I cant say enough good things about her and her make up artist.

Linda and her team at A Victorian Bride were absolutely fantastic!! I booked her through the internet since I was an out of town bride (destination wedding). They came to my hotel and spent the day making my mother, step mother, my 7 bridesmaids and myself look beautiful! Everyone looked so wonderful and all the guests/groomsman/groom commented on how great everyone looked. I loved how everyone still looked like themselves, just even prettier! Linda and her team were professional, prompt and fun and handled my very goofy (but fun) family all in stride! It was a pleasant, relaxing day. I highly recommend Linda and her team at A Victorian Bride!!

She was so warm and friendly , calmed all of my wedding day nerves and made me look flawless. I got so many compliments on my hair and makeup, and my pictures turned out amazing. She was on time and so fun to work with. She is a genius, and I would go back to her 100 times. Pick Linda, you'll be so glad you did! Can't say enough good things about my experience with her.

Linda was great to work with overall. She made my bridemaids, mother and I look absolutely beautiful on my wedding day. She came right to our room so we wouldn't have to travel anywhere which made my life alot easier with my son and guests coming in. She gave recommendations and was very flexible in added services. My only issue, which Linda went above and beyond to address, was her assistant Claire who seemed a bit pushy. As I said Linda addressed the issue and accomodated appropriately. Overall, I was very satisfied with my hair and makeup and overall expirence.

We were a very simple bridal party and were very happy with our end result, which was very natural and not all fake or clown like. Linda was also very patient with my 5 and 7 year old nieces who were wiggle warms in the chair. I couldn’t have been happier with how I looked! Linda also spent several hours with me during my trial to make sure I got exactly what I wanted.

Linda was great to work with. I relied totally on the internet when I hired her. I didn't live in the state I was getting married in so I didn't have a trial run with Linda prior to my wedding. I love how she did my makeup. I liked the makeup she used on me so much I purchased some from her line on her website. She even emailed me letting me know everything she used on my face. I was initially not happy with the way my hair turned out. Linda could sense I wasn't thrilled with it and didn't put up a fuss when I requested we change it. She did as I asked and made it look great! I would recommend anyone needing hair and/or makeup done professionally to call her!

Linda and her assistant did a wonderful job with my hair and make up for my wedding, I have no complaints there and my makeup lasted ALL NIGHT LONG and my hair was wonderful. She really did a great job.

Some of my bridesmaids however were not so lucky. Linda had done my maid of honor's hair and she was not very pleased with it. There were 3 curls hanging down that she did not like and had asked Linda if she could just pin them up into her updo (this would have taken less than 3 minutes to do). Because of her request, Linda raised her voice to my maid of honor and told her that "she does not have time to deal with this and that this is ridiculous". None of us knew what was happening and the room became silent. It was extremely unprofessional. This caused another one of my bridesmaids to not want to get her hair done by Linda because she was afraid of how she might react if she did not like it.

Linda later asked me if my maid of honor was okay. I told her she was fine. She tried to play it off like she was kidding around with her, but the six other people in the room knew she was not "kidding around". I would have found it much more professional if she had admitted that she should not have yelled and apologized for it. I am a teacher and I always encourage my students to accept responsibility for what they have done wrong and learn from it, not pass the blame on someone else or make up an excuse.

I know it is the "brides day" and all, but my bridesmaids paid money to get their hair done and if they do not like it they should be able to speak up and say something without being scolded. When you provide a service such as this for someone it should be expected that not everyone will be happy. I think it is important to know how to deal with clients who are not happy in a more professional way.

The other bridesmaids and our moms looked wonderful and were very happy with the service. This incidence however caused much tension in the room for the rest of the day.

A Victorian Bride Hair & Makeup Design Team-On location! responded with the following comments:

I had a great time with you and your bridal party of great girls from my home town of Chicago! I am truly sorry that both your MOH and you mistook my intentions. However,in all fairness to me, I never yelled at your MOH or anyone else in your bridal party! I do not ever yell or disrespect any of my Brides/clients that way or else I would not be in business for over 25 years. I was calling for her from another room to come in and sit down to fix/adjust her 3 curls hanging, when it was told to me that she was out smoking or had gone somewhere. I was getting concerned about the time and saw the worried look on your face and realized we had not started to work on your hair & makeup. When your MOH finally did return to the room, I then turned her over to my associate who did fix her curls, so I could devote all my attention and time to you in the attempt to make sure you were done on time for your pictures before I could or would address anyone elses's needs or requests.

She went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure everything was as perfect as possible. Thanks so much!

LINDA is a GOD SENT!!! I knew from reading her reviews AND meeting with her for my trial run that I would never regret hiring her. Linda and her makeup artist were at my house at 7:00 AM with smiles on their faces ready to work! I had 4 bridesmaids, plus my mother and myself. Everyone's hair and makeup was amazing, and the best part was that we all looked just as beautiful at 11:00 PM as we did in the morning when we were first done-up. I had SO many compliments on my hair and makeup, and I loved it because I still looked like myself, just better! I am also a HUGE cryer, and I cannot believe that after all my crying AND sweating, my makeup still looked flawless. The only issue we had was that I forgot to mention to Linda that 3 out of 4 of my girls had very long/thick hair, so we really ran late getting ready, but that was completely MY fault. I had also allotted for extra time anyways so we still made it to the church on time!

I cannot thank Linda enough. She was wonderful I felt like she was a part of the family. She was helpful with all of our needs and stayed longer than she had planned. Our day did not turn out the way I had dreamed. Hurrican winds and pouring rain during the wedding ceremony. Thank God it was in church. Our hair and makeup held up and you would never even think by the pictures that we had to fight the wind getting into church.
The sun did eventually come out and the wedding turned out perfect for my daughter. Thank you again Linda.

Since I was new to the area, I was on my own without recommendations. After a lot of research and reading reviews, I am SO HAPPY to have had Linda be a BIG part of my wedding. She is EXTREMELY TALENTED! If you need one Important person for your wedding it's Linda! She will make your wedding complete! I looked amazing! My eyes, OMG, fabulous! The one word every person (family and strangers) used to describe me is STUNNING and I agree! People I didn't know at the resort the next day came up to me and told me I looked stunning. I was so stressed before the wedding and at our trial run she relaxed me, it was like visiting a friend (thank you). The day of the wedding, she kept me calm and relaxed, by the time she was done I was ready to rock and roll! I ran into the bride from the other wedding and she just stopped and looked and me and said " OH WOW!" to make another bride say that!? NICE!! Thank You SOOO Much Linda You truly MADE my wedding even more Perfect "STUNNING!" ! My make up stayed BEAUTIFUL ALL night long, lasted through heat and crying! Worth Every Penny XOXO

Linda and Ally were very friendly and professional - a plus when your hair and make-up takes several hours! I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with my hair or make-up, but when Linda was done I looked and felt like a princess! When I walked down the aisle, I took everyone's breath away - even strangers came up to me after the ceremony and told me they had never seen a more beautiful bride. And even though I looked like a million bucks, she was very resonable.

Throughout the months of planning I wondered to myself if it made sense to pay for make-up. After we saw the results, my answer was a resounding YES!!!! Katie looked like a fairy-tale princess, and many people told my mom that she looked amazing (she's never really done much with make-up). Of course, friends said the same to me. Bryan (Katie's husband) said to me, "Mom, when I saw Kat coming down the aisle, she looked so beautiful. I was thrilled that she was going to become my wife."

You and Ally did a fabulous job. You have my recommendation!

Linda and her team did mine and my bridesmaids hair/makeup for my 12/11/10 wedding and no words can describe how amazing Linda and her team were. Not only were they fun to be around they were also amazingly talented. I am beyond happy we chose a makeup team that came to us because sitting around in our hotel suite, enjoying our own food and drinks as we pleased - made the experience that more relaxing and special. Linda did my hair and makeup and both turned out perfectly. My hair was more elegant that I could have imagined and Linda knew exactly where to place my hair flowers. I was nervous about makeup because I don't normally wear a lot, but the way Linda does her makeup is with true skill - she makes you look stunning by using the perfect amount of makeup and in the right places to give you a natural yet beautiful look. She also went above and in beyond in other ways (thank you!!!) and I will be forever grateful for making the "getting ready" portion of my wedding day so memorable, enjoyable and relaxing. Thank you again Linda and tell your team the same! -Colleen (Philadelphia, PA)

Linda thank you so much for doing our make-up for the wedding! Horatio recommended you and I can totally see why! All of the bridesmaids looked amazing (hair and makeup), my mom's hair and makeup was also awesome, and I looked SO AMAZING for my wedding day! Thank you for starting the day early with us (8:00 am), you and your assistant were on-time, and knew that it would be a drive so you booked a room at where we were getting married (awesome!). Everything thing went well, you even took the time to fix my mother-in-law's hair even though that wasn't in the contract. We did fall behind a little bit (I'm not quite sure how) and I had to rush myself into my dress and rush my mom and maid of honor into tying me up because we were late for the ceremony... but I looked AWESOME and so did all of my bridesmaids, maid of honors, and my mother :) Thank you and ask Horatio for photos to put on your website!!

I had myself, mother and 3 bridesmaids so a party of 5 to get ready! I met Linda for a pre-wedding trial in May before my wedding in November ( the time difference being I live in London and visit the Long Boat Key area twice a year normally). The test run was great, Linda is a very genuine lady and obviously has alot of knowledge and experience. We took photos of the end product and waited for the day. Her and her team were very professional and the make up was great. The only down side for me personally was my hair was done different to the original photo, ( which I did have for reference) meaning we had to go again and I felt my make up was heavier. They left me to the end as the brides make up needs to be the last but I was up at 7am and the cars turned up at 12.30 and I was still having my make up done which left me with 5 minutes literally to put my dress on and run out the door!. Timing was the only let down for me, but the bridesmaids looked great my mother upstaged the bride and all signs of sunburn were dealt with to give the photos a great finish.

It was flawless. She was very personable. I would suggest her to anyone. It was so nice to have her come to me on my wedding day and make me look beautiful. Everything lasted the entire day, even in 90+ degree weather. Thank you!!

Linda was more than amazing to work with! She was joyful and has a mastery way with all hair types and skin tones. She even helped me fix my horrible manicure from London Hair and Spa in St. Pete Beach, FL. She did not charge me for fixing it either.
Her make-up is wonderful for the Florida heat. It will not come off no matter how much you sweat, sure thing! She gave my mother a complimentary make-up application and offered valuable information regarding hair and make-up.
Linda would be the best person for any wedding.

A Victorian Bride did make-up only at my wedding.

Linda was so sweet. She is a vendor who will be your friend! Linda and I met well before the wedding at a bridal show and we had a meeting shortly after. Her prices were very reasonable and I booked her right away!

I cannot even tell you how many people said I was the most beautiful bride they had ever seen. I even had people tell me “if someone has said you are the most beautiful bride they’ve ever seen they are not exaggerating” My make-up was extraordinary! I’ve never felt prettier. And I have Linda to thank for that. She is the best in bridal make-up!

During my make-up application I was hungry and Linda was even feeding me snacks during the process. Some of my girls were a bit finicky about having their make-up done and Linda had no problem adding a few girls to the list day of. They even touched up my flower girl so she would feel special.

We had a bit of a time crunch (something unrelated to make-up) and my mother-in-law didn’t finish getting her make-up done before the ceremony. Linda had brought two additional artists with her for my wedding party and one of the ladies, also named Linda, stayed throughout the ceremony to finish my mother-in-laws make-up. She even touched up my lipstick before the dinner!

Overall, I would recommend A Victorian Bride to anyone. I loved working with Linda and the truth of the matter is, my make-up looked incredible!!!

A Victorian Bride did make-up only at my wedding.

Linda was so sweet. She is a vendor who will be your friend! Linda and I met well before the wedding at a bridal show and we had a meeting shortly after. Her prices were very reasonable and I booked her right away!

I cannot even tell you how many people said I was the most beautiful bride they had ever seen. I even had people tell me “if someone has said you are the most beautiful bride they’ve ever seen they are not exaggerating” My make-up was extraordinary! I’ve never felt prettier. And I have Linda to thank for that. She is the best in bridal make-up!

Linda from a Victorian Bride, what can I say? She is AWESOME!!! She is very talented and hears your ideas and turns them into reality making you look beautiful in the process. On time, professional, has amazing products that won't wash off during your wedding. She also has some cute things to wear on your hair. I already had my main piece but she complemented with some of hers to make it look just gorgeous. She is very organized and her equipment is clean.
Her assistant was great as well. Made my girls and Mom look great.
You can't go wrong with Linda. I love makeup, so trust me when I say she knows her profession really well. Also, she calms you down and is willing to retouch when you shed a tear or two. :)
She is a great makeup artist and hairdresser!

Ashley from Victorian Bride did my hair and makeup, my mother's hair and makeup, and the mother of the groom's makeup. Everyone looked gorgeous, and Ashley was so delightful and fun. The makeup definitely lasted all day, despite November Florida sun & humidity. I loved my hair (long, down, and curled with no veil).

Linda and Michelle came to the beach house we rented for our wedding back in June. I am from Pittsburgh and did all of my planning online so I was nervous having someone I had never met do my hair. I have never felt so beautiful as I did on my wedding day. Linda came for a test run earlier in the week and I had no doubts after that. Mine and my sisters makeup and hair looked amazing! I was so thrilled. Michelle and Linda were both so friendly and very good at what they do. I highly recommend them. They made me feel like a princess! Thanks girls!

Linda and Michelle came to our place and did hair and makeup for the entire bridal party. they made it a very relxed and fun affair, taking away some of those pre wedding jitters. It was a breezy day on the beach, they made sure that our hair and makeup stayed in place, not only for the ceremony, but the entire evening. I loved Linda's own line of cosmetics...it is a "wedding day pamper" that I highly recommend.

Linda did mine and my bridal party's make-up for my wedding and I believe the woman who did our hair was named Ashley? Both of them were wonderful! They did everything from trying to make us feel relaxed to poking my rented earrings through my slightly swollen and somewhat closed over new piercings that I waited too close to my wedding date to get. (ha!) I was worried that about getting a make up artist because I've had some bad experiences and didn't want to look like I had shown up for prom 10 years too late but the hair and make-up both were completely modern and sleek (exactly what I wanted) and magazine worthy! Not to mention that the prices were unbelievably reasonable. Linda I would be happy to share my pics if you like...

Thanks,

Kristin Grace

Linda was great! I was having a hard time deciding between updo's and she took my two favorites and combined them for a beautiful style. My makeup was beautiful and me and my husband just loved the false eyelashes. I never even had to touch up my makeup and my wedding and reception were both outside on beach. I didn't use the airbrush makeup either. She recommended that I not use it since I would be outside the whole time. I really felt at ease with her and she made me feel calm during such a stressful time. I would definitely recommend her for anyone's wedding.

As soon as I first met Linda the owner, we just hit it off. We're both originally from the midwest & she made me feel very comfortable. Her professionalism shined especially with her sample book of her work. Being my FIRST marriage at 62 yrs. old I wanted to feel & look extra special on MY DAY. Linda herself was not available on my wedding day so she brought her assistant, Michelle for my preliminary makeup. What a treat! Michelle was just as special & professional as owner, Linda. So on my wedding day Michelle rang my doorbell right on time...what a relief. She proceeded with her expertise with her special makeup. When I finally looked in the mirror I looked like a 'china doll'...the magic was done! Especially to include the individual eye lashes. After the ceremony many told me how wonderful I looked and even the men told my new husband that I looked awesome. What wonderful reviews to hear helping make our day extra special. I would highly recommend Linda, her staff, & makeup to assure you that you will look unbelievable on your special day.

Linda with A Victorian Bride did my hair and makeup for my wedding. I took a photo to her of the hairstyle that I liked, not knowing if it was something my hair would even do. But she did it and it looked phenomenal. I was so happy with both the hair and makeup and I didn't even worry about touching anything up all night. She did my mom's and bridemaid's hair also and they too were very pleased.

To all ladies who want to look amazing on their wedding day,
Linda is such an amazing artist. Her attitude and demeanor are so professional and yet at the same time, so much fun! She made me feel so at home and was patient with all my requests (you know it can be hard to get a hair style right!) and by the time my big day rolled around, she was such a part of our "bridal" team that the day would not have been complete without her. Not only did my mom and aunt love her, but so did my whole bridal party. I received many compliments on my hair and make-up and highly recommend Linda to anyone that wants to splurge and look their best for such a special occasion. How fun is it to have her come to you and your ladies?! Thank you to Linda for a memorable experience!

I used Linda for my Hair and make-up. We met for a consultation and I immediately found her photo album attractive and professional. She was prompt and made me very relaxed. I most definetely recommend brides-to-be to splurge financially on the day of wedding with Linda's service for hair and make-up. It was so STRESS FREE and I am very happy that I chose her. My husband had a tear in his eye at the alter. He said I was stunning. I had so many compliments on my hair and makeup. It is a great opportunity to give Victorian Bride an excellent review. Hair and makeup is a must for all brides on their wedding day.
Sincerely,
Colleen Bliss

It's nice to see that all the other reviewers had a great experience. I, however, did not. A couple of days before my wedding, I called Linda about adding an updo for one of my bridesmaids to her service. She said that was okay, but we would have to be at the location two hours earlier than she originally planned. I thought this was unusual and specifically asked if she meant that all of us, not just the lady getting the updo, would have to be there two hours earlier. She said yes, because once they start working they want to have everyone there so that when they finish with one person, they can start on the next. I was still skeptical but agreed. The day of the wedding, I was angry because we were at the location way earlier than we needed to be and it took her all of 20 minutes to do my bridesmaid's up-do. She asked me why I was upset and I told her that I thought it was ridiculous that we were there so early, then she claimed that she never said we all had to be there and chocked it up to a miscommunication.

I wasn't surprised at all to find out that she had another wedding after mine and the bride had requested that she show up earlier. That later came out while she was talking virtually non-stop while doing our make-up. She soon dashed off to go attend to the other bride. I never saw the complimentary lip-gloss that is promised on her website. I had to use my own (which I thankfully brought with me) for touch ups later in the day. Neither did I see any false eyelashes even though she told me over the phone that she would apply these to myself and the bridesmaids.

Linda and her assistant, also named Linda, are nice ladies but I was looking forward to spending time with my bridesmaids who all live in different parts of the country. Instead, I was stuck listening to their conversations and any effort to start conversation of my own was promptly overtaken by one of them. Linda, the assistant, even requested that I turn the music down that I had playing to set the mood for my big day. So much for my happiness.

I take nothing away from the make up that Linda did, I looked stunning. Maybe I am the one in a million customer who they just don't seem to please, but I really felt that I got second class treatment.

A Victorian Bride Hair & Makeup Design Team-On location! responded with the following comments:

Dear Brianna,
Thank you for your review. So sorry that you felt you did not have a good experience with us. I cannot agree with the acuracy of what your review describes on your wedding day, but I will tell you that you knew up front, that we had another wedding booked when you booked your event wth me, also per your photographer's request after speaking to him, we moved your start time up so he could start your pix at 2:30 not 3:00pm as originally planned. I needed to be at my other wedding by at least 3:30pm to start, and your ceremony was at 4:00pm. I agree that you did look stunning for your wedding,and that is what our goal was to make you look beautiful for your wedding and according to you and your pictures we did just that!
If we did a terrible job on your hair & makeup, or were late arriving, or worse yet, did not show up at all, then we would have deserved this very jaded review from you, but, such was not the case and your photographs prove it!
I cannot believe that you waited a whole year from your wedding date of
8-30-08 to say anything about this to me. I could have done something for you if you contacted me a week after the wedding. I do not think that
chastising Linda (my assistant) and I a year later on Wedding Wire site and to the World Wide Web is really fair. All the best to you, Linda, A Victorian Bride Hair & Makeup Design Team.

I highly recommend A Victorian Bride Hair and Makeup. My wedding day (like everyone else's!) was stressful and hectic, but when Victorian Bride arrived, it was finally able to sit and relax and take a break! My hair and makeup was exactly what I wanted. It also withstood a beach wedding and massive wind and humidity! I was very worried about having my makeup "done." Previously when I've had it done, it comes out looking caked on and nothing like me! But with Victorian Bride, it was just how I would've done it, except better! The best part was the photographs came back and I looked like me, not a done-up version of me! The few hours while I was getting my hair and makeup done was the most relaxing part of the day, and was a wonderful treat (thanks Mom!). Also, I got married on a Sunday, so it was fantastic that they came to our hotel and did it on-site.
