Voted UK Wedding Makeup Artist of the Year

Winning The Wedding Industry Award for UK Wedding Makeup Artist of the Year was amazing! It relied on a selection of my brides taking the time to give their feedback about me to the awards judging panel.  I still can’t thank them enough. Below is a verbatim selection of those brides’ comments:

Kaz was great on the day. She worked in a very professional manner, calmed me down and even helped me get my daughter ready. I had many positive comments about my hair and make up. Kaz worked really hard to ensure that myself and my sister were pleased with our hair and makeup on the day. A first-class service.

Kaz is very friendly – i was at ease talking about the way i wanted my make up done for my wedding. She listened and took time in getting things right and recommending products.

For a very hot day, Kaz did a fantastic job! My mother’s makeup was fantastic, she almost looked better than I did. She took into account last-minute makeup changes and also helped with my hair. The makeup did not budge a millimetre.

I found Kaz very professional and friendly, she understood exactly what I wanted on my wedding day – I even changed my hairstyle on the day of the wedding and this was not a problem for Kaz. My hair and makeup was just perfect.

Kaz was a wonderful make-up artist! From the moment I chatted to her on the phone to the time I met her she made me feel comfortable and very relaxed about my wedding day. As the most important day of your life you want to look your best. We worked very closely discussing the best looks for all 3 of us and the results were amazing! My best friend who was one of my bridesmaids has extremely good makeup skills herself and she loved Kaz’s work, so I know Kaz is the best out there! Kaz is also a very kind, friendly and warm person who would make anyone feel at ease on her wedding day. I would recommend Kaz to anyone looking for a professional artist.

Great make up artist, very helpful on the day.

Kaz was excellent and one of the best suppliers at our wedding and had to make a very difficult journey in the snow but was still fantastic!

Kaz was extremely professional, reliable, calm and comforting in the build-up to the wedding and on the day itself. She did a fantastic job with my hair and makeup, it was flawless. She even left me some samples so I could touch up during the reception. She also lent me her hair extensions which I returned. She went the extra mile to provide a comprehensive and personal service. She fitted into the family and even had breakfast with us on the wedding day before she started work. She was efficient and managed to do 4 people plus the bride and never once showed signs of panic but always remained calm, collected and focused. A true expert!

Kaz was unable to do my make up on the day of the wedding as she was already booked so she suggested a makeup workshop for me and a couple of friends. We had four hours with Kaz and learned so much! She helped us get the best out of our natural features, showed us which make up we should bin (!) and recommended new make up to get the effect we were looking for. For a group of 50 something women, she did a fabulous job. I have continued to use many of the products she recommended and most of the techniques and so have my friends. I would recommend her to any bride hoping for flawless skin on her wedding day!

Kaz was extremely helpful at my makeup and hair trial – very patient and gave loads of advice on products and styles. On the day of my wedding, she turned up at the house at 7.15am and was cheerful and supportive of all of us. She calmly packed up all her equipment and took it to the venue where she completed all our hair and makeup – bride, mother of the bride and two bridesmaids. We all looked stunning! Our makeup lasted all day – staying as fresh as at the start. It was all in all a lovely experience – she made us all feel special – thank you Kaz.

Kaz was fantastic at creating the idea I had in my head of what I wanted with my hair. Not only did she spend plenty of time with me in the trial, but she also came back to my house in her own time without charging to try the hairstyle on me to make sure I was happy with what she had been practising. It made me so at ease on the day to know someone cared so much and had put in the effort. I have also learned invaluable makeup lessons from Kaz that I use every day, have replaced my makeup with the products she recommended and tell all my friends her tricks! She really is worth every penny and more!

Kaz, was wonderful. She made me, my Mum and sister all look fabulous for my big day.

Kaz was absolutely amazing, she listened to all my ideas and was creatively involved in the process. All the products that she used to create the look amazing and the overall finished ‘product’ was great. In addition to this Kaz was also a huge help to my day for keeping me calm and ensuring that I didn’t have to concern myself with any matters other than relaxing and looking beautiful. She was able to discretely and sensitively remove and stress from around me from doing simple things like talking with the ‘mothers’, the photographer and my bridesmaids. Words can’t describe the difference that Kaz made to my day. I have recommended her on more than one occasion and wish her all the best for the future. She is truly a leader in the wedding makeup/hair industry.

Kaz made me look so beautiful on the day. I was confident and assured walking down the isle – something I had feared became something I look back upon and treasure.

Kaz was a lovely person to have with me on my special day and put myself and my bridesmaids at ease, she was calm relaxed and i would not hesitate to recommend her to any other brides

Excellent advice and very understanding

Both my hair and makeup looked amazing! Was so pleased that it looked so fresh and natural, just the look I was wanting. My hair stayed in perfect place ALL day and all I needed to do was re-touch my lip gloss. (hair and makeup looked fabulous on the photos too!) Would most definitely recommend Kaz Fernando to my friends and other brides to be!

I do not wear make up – ever. I was very anxious when I started the process that I would end up looking very different and unnatural. Kaz listened carefully to what I wanted and introduced me to a couple of products that I still use. She has excellent connections in the industry so I was able to get a vintage piece for my hair that I would not have known existed otherwise. On the day itself, she was completely professional, and worked with my under-confident mother, in exactly the same way as she did with me. We were both amazed at the results and extremely grateful for all she did for us. She allowed me to enjoy every aspect of the day as I was completely confident ( for the first time in my life) that I looked lovely.

Kaz is an unbelievable talent in makeup and hair. I first called her as a worried bride as I have very long hair and I asked her if she was able to do something with my long hair and unlike all the other makeup and hair stylists she said yes. I went for a trial and from the moment she opened the door we clicked. I was amazed by her talent in my trial and she was calming and relaxed me the whole time. my hair looked amazing also. on my wedding day, she arrived on time and was amazing with me and all my bridesmaids and my mum. she was funny and relaxing and she felt like a part of the family all day. she got my makeup and hair perfect and her whole production was perfect. she really has become a good friend and I would recommend every bride to have her on their day!! her professionalism is second to none and she steps up to anything you need with no hesitation. her skills are unique and exceptional.

Kaz was an absolute lifesaver. Hair and make-up aside – as it goes without saying she’s fabulous at what she does – she was also a great calming influence on the day offering relaxed and objective advice in and amongst all the typical wedding drama. It was like having another family member there supporting me on the day. A total professional and great support.

Kaz did the make-up and hair for me, my mum and sister for my wedding. At our trial she listened to what we wanted to achieve, this gave us confidence in her. We all looked beautiful on the day, we were all thrilled with our looks. My mum loved that Kaz created lots of volume in her hair as this is something she has never been able to achieve herself. I always hate looking at myself in photos but having now seen the professional photos I am so impressed, I actually love looking at all the photos I am in. Kaz managed to make me look absolutely gorgeous, I don’t know how she did it. Because she did such a good job it helped with my confidence on the day. Our hair and make-up lasted through the day and evening, despite it being a very hot day, my make up didn’t melt, my face looked flawless. My hair was perfect, beautiful, just what I wanted, elegant and classy. Kaz was also happy to suggest tips on applying make-up and was happy to recommend make-up for us to buy. I am genuinely very happy with the results, I would recommend her to anyone.

Kaz was wonderful from start to finish. She was so patient in the trials and so calming on the day. Great fun and extremely professional helping to make the day even more special!

Kaz was hugely supportive both prior to and on the day. She didn’t just do hair and make-up, she helped to make sure I was ready on time and calmed last-minute nerves. She is a very professional and highly skilled artist.

Kaz was a great spirit to have around on the wedding morning. With the trial, I was assured that I was in god hands and what was promised, was delivered tenfold. I would really recommend her to any bride, she’s worth every penny – AND I didn’t have to touch up once!

She was absolutely brilliant! She has a relaxed attitude, my mum and I got lots of compliments and the pictured came out great! She’s very friendly and the make up lasted all day and night!

I fully recommend Kaz, she’s a make up magician and she will put u so at ease on the day!

Kaz was very pleasant to work with and very good at what she does

What can I say Kaz made me feel so beautiful on each trail and especially on the day – she listened to all my ‘wants’ and ‘don’t wants’ and delivered over and above what I had expected! The service my mum, bridesmaid and I received on the day was not only professional but also a pleasure as we felt so pampered and de-stressed! I would rate Kaz 100 if the slider stretched far enough!

Kaz was simply brilliant! Professional but personable and technically excellent.

Kaz was an extremely professional and enjoyable make up artist to have on my wedding day. She did myself and my mum’s hair and make up and talked us through everything putting us at complete ease. Previously she did a trial with me and took photos so we were sure to get the style perfect on the day. I would high recommend Kaz to anyone, she’s 100% reliable and such a joy to be with.

Kaz is very professional, warm and friendly. She gave helpful advice during my trial and uses the most amazing products. Kaz also listened to what I wanted and helped me create the most perfect look for my wedding day.

Kaz was an outstanding hair and make-up artist. She gave great advice at my trial before my wedding day and was a calming influence on the day. She was very professional and I had absolute confidence that she would do an amazing job. I felt fantastic on the day and so did my Mum and bridesmaids. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to other brides.

Kaz is such a lovely person who has a calm and friendly, yet professional, nature. She made me feel and look fabulous on my big day and gave me lots of advice & support leading up to the wedding. She made sure I was 100% happy with everything and nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend Kaz to everyone.

she was wonderful before the day when she came for my trial and she was also brilliant on the day and helped me with my nerves and she helped me with my Indian veil, which was super heavy.

Kaz created the perfect look for me – like me only better. I didn’t want to feel as if I was overly made up and she created the perfect balance.

Kaz was really helpful and approachable and took a real interest in my day, She had great product knowledge and was really easy to get on with. She even gave my groom a quick touch up on the day!

Kaz was brilliant, she knew exactly the hair and make-up look I wanted and both in the trial and on the wedding day made me feel really relaxed, happy and confident. She was great with my bridesmaids and both she and her assistant were brilliant with us all. We were all really happy with the results! I wanted a vintage look and she made us all look brilliant! So a big thank you to her!

Kaz was a pleasure to deal with and was very professional. We ran a bit tight of time on the day through no one’s fault, but she did her utmost to ensure we were all ready on time.

The end result was more than I had hoped for – glamourous but natural at the same time. Kaz used fantastic products which were applied expertly and lasted the whole day. The only reapplying I made was lip gloss. Kaz was punctual and professional. She worked so hard on the day and did hair and make up for 5 of us and even managed to make my flower girls feel included in the hair and make up session. She was ever calm and I cannot praise her and her work highly enough. I would recommend her to anyone, for hair and make-up

I never thought I would find someone I trusted enough to do my make up, as a very fussy and controlling person in that department! However, as soon as I started talking to Kaz and saw the range of products she had I knew I could relax and leave her to it! I am so pleased I did, it made my wedding morning so much more relaxing!

Kaz made everyone feel very relaxed. The bride was nervous during the practice for the make up as she doesn’t normally wear a lot. However, Kaz put her make up on so well that it enhanced her natural beauty and she felt wonderful on the day. She also did my make up and as I had to face my ex-husband for the first time in 6 years with his girlfriend I was nervous but I felt wonderful with the effect the makeup gave me.

Kaz is amazing. She can work magic on anyone and makes everyone feel special. She is also so down to earth and has a lovely calming influence which is just what you want on your wedding day. I would not hesitate in booking Kaz again if I had the choice. She just awesome at what she does.

Very lovely lady professional, friendly made me feel so relaxed and calm on my special day but most of all done such an amazing job on my wedding makeup I was so happy and very pleased that I choose Kaz to do the wonderful job she did.

Kaz was brilliant, kept me calm on the day, very professional but also so very personal, couldn’t have wished for a better person to be with me doing my makeup and hair on this special day. I felt in very capable hands. How she keeps so calm when all around her are flapping about I don’t know, she is amazing., and keeps everyone convinced that ‘all will be fine’ and it certainly was! She has got to be the winner, she really has!

Kaz did a wonderful job. she made up the bride, bridesmaids and mother of the bride. she was helpful, cheerful, extremely experienced and went the extra mile. the results were outstanding

Kaz, made a potentially stressful morning, great fun. My MUm and bridesmaids were not the easiest to please and Kaz did a fantastic job. Kaz understood what I wanted and managed to make me look even better than I had imagined. I wish I could to afford to her every time I go out.

Kaz is fantastic. She made getting ready for my wedding an absolute delight. She is really attentive to what you want and makes really helpful suggestions on what will suit you but always taking account of your individual style. On the day I looked and felt amazing – basically like a better version of myself!

Kaz was absolutely fantastic, I cannot recommend her highly enough! I contacted her through a recommendation just a few weeks before my wedding, my make up artist had just let me down quite rudely approx 5 weeks before my wedding. I was quite stressed about finding someone who was really good at short notice! My photographer, Julia Boggio, recommended Kaz and from the moment I got in touch my nerves were calmed! Kaz was incredibly helpful, efficient and immediately a trial was arranged which went brilliantly. Kaz managed to capture the exact look I wanted and recreated it perfectly. On the day Kaz and a colleague of hers arrived to do mine, my bridesmaids and mum’s hair and make up. She was such a lovely, fun person to have around on the morning of my wedding and remained so calm, friendly and helpful throughout – she really helped to make my morning so memorable. Even when things began to get a little stressful as we realised we were going to be quite late, she was still so calm and helpful touching up my make up as I dashed out of the door – we left her to lock up behind her as we were so late and she didn’t mind in the slightest – she couldn’t do enough to help! As for our hair and make up – it looked fantastic and my hair stayed perfectly in place all day, something it’s never done before in my life! My make up looked so flawless and natural – I just wish I could have my hair and make up done by Kaz again!

Great recommendation and great lady

Kaz was warm and friendly when I first got in contact and I really liked the pictures of her work on her website.

I saw pictures on her website and liked her work

Recommendation from my photographer and following a great trial
