Hannah has worked as part of the vintage creative and editorial team since the inaugural vintage festival in 2010. Hannah has played an invaluable role in the event, is always diligent, organised, creative and upbeat. Above all, she is talented and gets the job done. Hannah comes recommended.
I have worked with Hannah on several occasions, and have to say that I would now be loathed to use anyone else. Her make up skills are first class and she also brings so much more creatively to each and every shoot. Fantastic to work with all round.
Hannah is a joy to work with; she's a key part of our judging team for the Warpaint Makeup Championships and a very safe pair of hands in such a busy, time-critical environment. Her teaching experience coupled with great pro skills ensures that our competitors take away helpful and constructive feedback, and grow in confidence. She's a stickler for detail - especially in hygiene and safety - and her evident love of the industry shines through in her work.

Gemma Davies - BrideI used Hannah for my wedding recently. I was very vague about what I wanted (look good, but natural) she made me look stunning. I'm currently being treated for cancer as well and Hannah really put me at ease during a tricky time. Everyone said I looked amazing and Hannah did such a good job that I also felt amazing as well! She also went the extra mile by helping my mum with her hair and stepping in whenever it was needed, which everyone appreciated (who doesn't appreciate an expert making them look gorgeous when there is a photographer about!) I would not have wanted anyone else to make me look and feel gorgeous on my wedding day. I have a few friends getting married over the next few years and I will be recommending Hannah to all of them. Thank you for making my wedding extra special!
Penina Berkley - BrideHannah was the perfect person to have with me on my wedding day...she did a fantastic job and was calm, chatty and supportive whilst everyone around us was going a little crazy (sorry Hannah!) thanks for being there and doing such a fantastic job - I still get people complimenting my hair and make-up from that day!
Jodie Bewley - BrideI was really impressed with my make-up for my wedding day. Hannah made me feel perfect for my big day.
Kirsten Mitchell – BrideHannah did both my hair and make up on my wedding day and was fantastic from beginning to end. She is so passionate about her work and an absolute perfectionist, nothing was too much trouble for her and she made sure I was 100% happy. I had so many compliments on the day and can honestly say I have never felt so beautiful. Thank you Hannah.
Geraldine SenkatukaHannah is a truly professional makeup artist. Prior to my big day, I had the opportunity to experiment wit colours and tones and makeup that I would not ordinarily have used at her studio. This really gave me the confidence to try new things which I could continue with even after my wedding day. Hannah arrived promptly on my wedding morning, and skilfully applied my makeup, keeping me informed all the way with what she was doing. By the time she had finished completing my transformation, even by my own admission, I looked like a princess - something I had never felt before in my entire life. This reflected in the wonderful wedding day photos. Thanks Hannah. You're a true star!!!!
Elenor Spanjar – BrideMy calming influence on an otherwise stressful day. Hannah is talented and helpful; I have recommended her to all of my friends.
Freddie Greig - BrideHannah did my makeup for my wedding in 2008 and I was extremely pleased with it. I would certainly recommend her. She is a true professional and great fun to be around, her positive enthusiastic personality is what you need on your wedding day!
Emily Cowan - BrideNot only was my make up perfect on my wedding day but she was so much fun to have around on a potentially very stressful day! She even got me in my dress and felt like part of the family! I would highly recommend her. The make up, (particularly the airbrush foundation) is so light and you don't feel like you're walking around with layers of it on. Also she was very honest and helped me grow my eyebrows into a better shape which really suited me. It was a fun project!!!
