I honestly can't say enough about Kirsty! My husband and I jokingly refer to our wedding as the "Reverse-Midas Touch Wedding" because it seemed like everything our wedding touched turned into.. well.. the opposite of gold. From my bridal shop going out of business 2 days before I was scheduled to pick up my dress, to our first two venues weaseling out of our contracts, and even down to our last name being misspelled on our cake topper, it seemed like nothing could just go smoothly for us. That is, until I came across Kirsty Wingfield, Richmond Make Up Artist.
Kirsty was such a bright spot in my otherwise arduous wedding-planning process. She was easy to get in touch with from the moment I first contacted her up until the day of my wedding. Her prices and value are unparalleled, and I say that as a penniless Law student and wife of a firefighter; we're frugal as they come, and Kirsty's prices were a bargain! She was flexible about changing details and about high-maintenance bridesmaids ;). She was punctual and prepared (she got into the venue and completely set up 30 minutes before I arrived).
Most importantly, her work was absolutely phenomenal. I know very little about make up aside from how to apply mascara and Chapstick, so I was beyond thrilled when I asked Kirsty to "make me look like me.. but, like, glamorous," and she NAILED IT. My bridesmaids, on the other hand, had lots of specific ideas, requests, and photos they wanted to mimic. Kirsty nailed those too. Everyone raved about how great our make up looked. If I could give her more stars, I would. Thank you so much, Kirsty!!
