"Can't rave about this girl enough! She was so much fun the time just flew by! Didn't need to try loads of different looks, she just got what I wanted right away. Having planned my wedding from Australia I can honestly say she was the easiest vendor to deal with, in terms of being reliable and getting back to any questions/queries I had (which were A LOT) On the day she was great at easing my nerves and even got me into my dress & shoes! My hair & make up lasted all night! Thanks Ashley - you're a star! Harriet x (Poets House Ely - St Mary's Church Ely - Old Fire Engine House 2015

She is a pro! - Katie Llewellyn

"Ashley - Just wanted to say a mahoosive thank you for being such a star on my wedding day! You were calm collected and reassuring which was a big help when I was an emotional wreck!! It felt like you were part of the family- helping out with Hartley-Love and Harper and even helping my daddy with he's button hole and offering to stay and tidy the room! You are amazing and I'm so so glad that we met, like we've known each other for years and sooo much in common. I've told everyone about you and will do for a long time.

"Ashley did my hair and makeup for my wedding. She was friendly and professional, really helping to put me at my ease on the big day. I was delighted with the results, and ended up feeling so confident and pretty, something I wouldn't have predicted! My hair and makeup stayed looking good throughout the day with only my lipstick needing reapplied (as one would expect after eating and drinking etc). In summary, I had a great experience with PPP and would highly recommend Ashley. - Mairi xxx

"Dear Ash and Angela (Ashley's wonderful assistant) Thank you both so much for doing such an incredible job on Friday. We all thoroughly enjoyed having you join us for the morning - you fitted in perfectly, helped distract me when I really needed it, and managed to achieve a gorgeous result with my make-up despite having a red, puffy face from all the tears just minutes earlier!! You were so patient when we asked for the odd 'tweak' here and there, and I know all the girls were incredibly happy with their hair and make-up, as was I! Thank you for helping us start the most perfect day in a perfect way.... With all our best wishes and thanks, Georgina Linford (& Jules, Helen, Pam, Chloe and Anaya!) xxx 2015

"Ashley did my hair & make up and bridesmaids' hair for my wedding in July this year and did a fantastic job. She was super relaxed, professional and listened to what I wanted - quite natural with flowers in hair. It all looked lovely and she was excellent to work with, definitely recommended. Thanks Ashley! Clare xx Summer 2015

"I was recommended Ashley by my wedding venue, Chippenham Park, and all I can say is that she did an excellent job for me on my wedding day, doing hair and make-up for both my sister and me. She was professional, yet warm, friendly, flexible in her approach and lots of fun and she put me at my ease instantly. She listened to what I wanted. Even when my mother decided last minute that she wanted her hair done, Ashley did that with only 15 minutes to spare! I got many compliments on my hair and make-up and my sister and mum looked beautiful too! - Menaka Thavarajah xx Summer 2015

"Ashley did a great job with my wedding hair and makeup, as well as the rest of the wedding party!

Thank you for making the process so enjoyable, easy and fun! You are extremely talented and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone! I hope 2014 was a great success for you and that 2015 will be even better! Lots of Love and Thanks - Beckie Donaldson xxx

“I wanted to get in touch to say thank you so much for being so brilliant on the morning of my wedding. Not only did you make my hair and make-up look fantastic (I got a lot of very positive comments!), but you brought a brilliant atmosphere with you. That, the mini make-up tutorial, and your great sense of humour, really helped us girls to stop thinking about our nerves (and the rain!). We had an amazing day and you helped to start it all off. x”

“Just wanted to say that I had an AMAZING reaction to my hair and makeup last night - I felt SO glamourous, and a LOT of heads turned. Can't emphasise how your art can make someone feel fantastic (and for a while now I've felt dowdy) - so big THANKS for working your magic. ”
--------------

“I'd like to give you a big thank you for the wonderful job you did on my make-up and hair. I got so many compliments from everyone and my mother kept telling me how "flawless" my face was. You managed to get that natural look perfectly and my hair was exactly the way I wanted it to be. That all aside, you even helped me get dressed and ready, and I definitely wouldn't have made it on time if you didn't stay and help me. I don't know what we would have done without you!”
--------------

“Ash, thank you so much for everything on Saturday. You were such a pleasure to have around, and we all loved how we looked! And everything stayed in place!!”
