Nat Pallandre was the make up artist for my wedding and I couldn’t recommend her more highly to any bride to be. Nat created a look for my bridesmaids and myself that complemented my style seamlessly and made me feel like a million dollars on my big day! I felt like I was in such great hands. In the hours before the ceremony nerves can run high, and Nat’s presence and capabilities were so calming. On top of that, she really added to the fun of the occasion – sharing a glass of champagne and a girlie chat while she did my makeup was the perfect prelude, she made me feel confident and beautiful, and absolutely ready to say “I do!” Fabian
“Nat is definitely someone you want around you on your wedding day! Her calm presence and positive energy really made such a difference to me and all of the ladies who she helped make look beautiful for my big day. It can be a pretty hectic environment for anyone to be apart of when they’re with the bride and her clan on the morning of her wedding, but Nat helped contribute to a really cruisey and happy environment; she felt like more of a close friend who was there to just assist and help whichever way she could. Nat listened to everyone’s wishes and made everyone feel stunning- especially me! I couldn’t recommend her enough!! Nat made me feel like the best version of myself- I was worried that having my make up professionally done could end up with me having layers and layers of make up on, leaving me feeling heavy and looking like someone else. Nat listened to my concerns, asked the right questions about venue, weather, theme, dress, hair etc and then created the most beautiful look for me- I was so, SO pleased with the result. Honestly, I wish I could relive my wedding day every single day of my life, and every time- I would ALWAYS pick Nat to do my makeup! Thanks so much Nat ” Haylee
