“I have been lucky enough to have my make up done by Celina three times this year, once at a trial, once as a bridesmaid and then as a bride! Celina is a true professional, she gets exactly what you want and the look you are going for. She is also such a lovely person and a great help to have around on the wedding day. She makes everybody feel comfortable and her make up is just amazing. I wish I could have my make up done by Celina everyday!”

Mrs Sarah Beckett (Porte)

“So glad I found such a professional expert to do my wedding make up, you see other brides photo's now and again and it makes me feel extremely privileged to have found such a talented, creative, calm and friendly make up artist to do my wedding make up. A friend of mine was a bridesmaid for me and was equally as impressed and booked Celina for her wedding make up too. Celina is a great teacher too, I learnt so much on my make up lesson recently, Celina is very patient. Celina to win!!”

Mrs Melissa Hill

“I used Celina for my wedding make up last month and was very pleased with the end result. Both my make up and my bridal party's was flawless, tailored to what we were comfortable with and looked perfect for the entire day. The mornibg ran smoothly, with her ensuring that we kept to schedule and ensute that our make up was perfect before leaving. Would not hesitate to book with her in the future for an event.”

Mrs Francesca Gommans (Nicholls)

“She listened to exactly what I wanted and catered to all my bridal party's wants and needs and made us all look lovely.We all felt very relaxed around her which made it more fun like a friend doing your makeup.And when it came to my wedding day she made me feel very relaxed and calm and felt relaxed in the knowledge that she knows what she doing.”

Mrs Lucy Blackery

“Celina's work is flawless, so flattering and long lasting. Celina made over myself, my three bridesmaids and my mum, and we all received nothing but compliments throughout the day and after. Her work is incredible, her before and after shots are addictive, and she's really nice too! Her contouring skills are amazing, and on the three separate occasions Celina has done my make-up, I have not wanted to wash it off before bed. I will use Celina again and again, whenever I can find an excuse!”

Mrs Natalie Wilson

“I found working with Celina to be an absolute pleasure. From my initial enquiry email to the actual day she was always very helpful and professional. I can honestly say that I felt beautiful throughout the whole day. Eveyone commented on how mine and my bridesmaids make-up was on the day and it looked absolutely fantastic in our photos too. She 100% gets my vote!”

Mrs Hayley Gray (McQuade)

“Celina was professional and friendly from the very start, my make-up stayed perfectly all day and my skin looks flawless in our photos. On the wedding morning Celina arrived on time and was her usual bubbly happy self and got involved with all of the wedding excitement! Celina organised the timings of the wedding morning Which was really helpful as there is always so much to co-ordinate. it was a relief that she helped out with that as it took a lot of pressure off of me.”

Mrs Abbi Garrod (Mott)

“Celina is friendly, fun, professional and reliable. On the day my makeup was perfect, and boy oh boy did she take me away and do my makeup on peace and quiet. She really calmed me down! Which was priceless. The transformation on my mother was also unbelievable! She looked and felt a million dollars! Celina's reviews speak for themselves. She truly deserves every kind word and she works hard for it. I would recommend Celina to anyone.”

Mrs Davina Hicks (West)

“Celina is truly a deserving winner of the Wedding award for Best make up artist. From the first point of contact right up to the day of the wedding she acted with professionalism, but more importantly with kindness, understanding and humour! She made myself, bridesmaids and my mum so at ease we felt truly pampered and looked and felt a million dollars. I can't thank Celina enough for making me feel the most confident and most beautiful I have ever felt! The groom was pretty blown away too!”

Mrs Gemma Robson (Maguire)

“Celina is outstanding in what she does, she just puts her heart and soul into the make-up and she really knows what she is doing. The calmness of trial at her house then the day itself at my parents, I couldn't have wished for anyone else doing my make-up. I had so many compliments and even how my make-up stayed and lasted all night as well. Even my bridesmaids were so happy with their make-up including my Mum where she now just loves looking at the before and after photos that are all amazing.”

Mrs Claire Selmes (Tribe)

“My makeup was perfect I felt amazing on my wedding day thanks to Celina. The time spent in the morning preparing was such fun I felt confident. Celina has a very calm approach we were all at ease and enjoyed ourselves.. My makeup stayed perfect throughout the day. My guests said how lovely I looked. Simply brilliant and a wonderful experience. I would definitely recommend Celina.”

Mrs carole cripps

“From the initial communication, to the trial and finally to the make up on my wedding Celina was knowledgeable, full of advice, friendly and full of great ideas but what was so important for me was that she understood and translated my concepts into my wedding day make up and the make up of my mother and bridesmaids. Make up was such an important part of my day and I trusted Celina 100 per cent to transform me from a tired mother of 2 to a glamorous bride.”

Mrs Keeley Gardner (Eggleton)

“I can not praise Celina enough, from start to finish she was fantastic, she made me feel at ease from our very first meeting at my first trial. We than saw her for my second trial and my bridesmaids trial, she made us laugh and feel comfortable as well as wowing us with the make up she had done. On the big day Celina was brilliant she made us all look stunning and i never felt nervous as she is a total expert in her field, i felt like a million dollars, i was over the moon”

Mrs Nikki Orsbourn

“Celina was brilliant on the day of my wedding my make up and all the bridesmaids and my mums make up looked stunning Celina is a professional yet really warm person and she totally calmed me down when I needed it!!”

Mrs Katie Vickers

“Celina was friendly and helpful from the moment I spoke with her, communication was great throughout. During my trial she put me at ease straight away and gave me confidence she knew what she was doing. Both my mum and mother of the groom were nervous about getting their make up done for the day ( bad experiences) but celina again put them at ease and myself and the whole wedding party were so pleased with how they looked that day. And it shows in the wedding photos so thank you celina! ”

Mrs Laura( murphy) Richardson

“Celina is amazing, her work is outstanding. I was worried about having my makeup done as I suffer with breakouts and worried we may not be able to cover them. I couldn't believe my skin after, I had the clearest complexion. My bridesmaids, mum and I were so so happy Celina is very talented.”

Mrs Rebecca bell (Morris)

“Amazing make up artist. I have never felt so pretty and special in all my life. Made me feel very calm on the day.”

Mrs Kerry Wilson (Denton)

“Celina Keywood Make Up Artist: Wow! Celina's expertise is incredible; tips and tricks plus a record sheet of the wedding look I'd chosen. Celina is super organised, professional and has magnetic charm; her warm and bubbly nature made me relax immediately and her sense of humour made me smile as she set about naturally 'blending' the best make up products to create my dream wedding look. I was so thrilled; my make up was flawless, I felt like a princess and it stayed on all day and night. WOW!”

Mrs Marina Caffrey (Andrews)

“Celina was absolutely fantastic from the day we first met at the Hedingham Castle Open Day right up to my wedding day. Celina makes you feel relaxed, calm and at ease in her company and most certainly makes you look and feel like a million dollars! Myself, my Mum, bridesmaids and Auntie were absolutely chuffed to bits with our make up and can't thank Celina enough. She is truly exceptional at her work and I wish she could do my make up everyday! I really did feel like a Hollywood movie star!”

It really is the most beautiful I have ever looked, I had so many compliments and felt amazing on my special day. I just wish I could have Celina move in with me so that I could look that good every day!”

Mrs Mercedes Groom (Holmes)

“Celina's before & after photos drew me to her. Its amazing to see the difference in how make up can transform a women. But its not all in the make up. Celina is a super talented MUA who knows her stuff. She knows what looks good for the camera and for us ladies souls! She makes you look and feel a million dollars. She made myself and my bridal party calm, excited and glam! She was an excellent time keeper and helped make sure the morning ran smoothly and in control. What more could a Bride want!”

Mrs Lucy Rejniak

“celina is amazing. She made me fit back in the 50's with the theme of my dress and hair. I've never felt and looked so beautiful and the compliments from my guests kept coming way into the evening when my make-up still looked flawless after a good few hours of dancing :) She deserves this award for understanding her brides and telling them "to be brave, you've chosen a theme :)" Wow, when you see yourself, you see exactly what you pictured when you dreamt of being a bride as a little girl ”

Mrs Helen Gales (wyllie)

“Celina is absolutely fantastic. I had a trial and I was over the moon with it. She was a professional from start to finish - On the wedding day she turned up early&we were all ready & sorted with time to spare. I was so pleased with how my make up turned out - it was the best money I had spent for the day as you want to look your best as you will have the photos for the rest of your life as a reminder. Celina is the best choice for a make up artist she knows exactly what will look good on you.”

Mrs Joanna Bell (Isaac)

“Celina was fantastic throughout the whole process, she knew exactly what I wanted and what would suit my complexion, as well as my bridesmaids and Mum. Her friendliness, chattiness and confidence ensured everyone was relaxed getting ready, no stress at all. My make up stayed put all day and looked fresh even at the end of the day, and everyone commented on how lovely I looked. I would recommend Celina to everyone!”

Mrs Steffi Dry (Taylor)

“Celina did my bridal party makeup on my wedding day, there's 7 of us to do and she made us all look and feel amazing on the day. The preparations run so smoothly and it was a relax morning getting ready.”

Mrs Natalie O'Connor (Brewer)

“Celina is professional and at the same time, fun and friendly. All of my bridal party were worried leading up to the day about being 'made up' but came away so happy with their look. When I think of how fantastic my wedding day was, the build up and getting ready was one of my favourite parts, something I will have fond memories of for years to come and I have Celina and her calm and organised approach to thank for that. She and my hairdresser worked so well together, highly recommended!”

Mrs Joella Kirk (Green)

“Having had a trial with another make-up artist i was left feeling deflated. Thankfully Celinas web page was amazing, the before and after pictures were unbelievable. On our wedding day, Celina was prompt, made us all feel at ease, and the end results for me and my bridesmaids were just astounding. I dont think i could have been any happier. Having been let down by a hairdresser just 5 days before my wedding, Celina found me another, going beyond the call of duty. She truely deserves this award.”

Mrs Donna Smith (Green)

“I am not an make up person at all so when meeting Celina she literally explained every product to me an the benifits of using each product . She didn't make me feel silly asking these questions either.I went to my trial with a vision an without even fully explaining Celina had made my vision possible with added extras at one point I had to ask her are you in my head!Being of colour I was a little worried the make up wouldn't match my completion but Celina removed that doubt for me shes Amazing!”

Mrs chantel Neil (Matthews)

“I was first drawn to Celina after reading many positive reviews on the internet & her website held so much helpful information. From my first contact with Celina she proved to be a very friendly & approachable person which is important when choosing who will be carrying out such an important task on your big day. She knew exactly what products & colours would suit me & go with my colour scheme. To top it off she put us all at ease on my wedding day & brought music (something I didn't think of!)”

Mrs Sarah Street (Brown)

“Celina was highly professional and I was able to trust that she was going to do any amazing job which she did! My makeup was amazing and we all received lots of compliments.”

Mrs Claire Clarke

“Celina was a complete professional from my initial enquiry 18 months before my wedding right up until the big day! I had a trial at her home with my mum and sister four months before the wedding and it was a lovely morning and after that we knew we would all be looking our best! On the day Celina arrived early and set up her kit. She even had an upbeat song playlist to keep everyone in good spirits but not too emotional and it was such a fun morning getting ready which Celina really added to!”

Mrs Victoria Sterling-Curtis (Hawkins)

“Celina made me feel like a princess on my special day, she was so calming and welcoming on both the trial and wedding day, I couldn't have asked for more, a true professional that I would without a doubt recommend.”

Mrs Natalie Murphy

“Celina was amazing, I was completely confident that whatever state my face was in, she would be able to sort it on the day! My make up was more amazing that I could ever have expected and I had amazing comments all day, as did my bridesmaids! She was a fab calming influence on the morning and stayed and helped until we were completely ready for the ceremony. Couldn't have asked for anymore :-)”

Obviously her experience and seeing me as a blank canvas made my ideas look poor on comparison.”

Mrs Davina Hicks (West)

“The photos I had seen on Celina's Facebook page all looked really natural and well done and she hadn't made anyone look like a clown with loads of make up on.

The whole look was perfect, not just for me but for my maids, who were all so pleased with their looks.

Mrs Victoria Sterling-Curtis (Hawkins)

“Celina's before & after photos drew me to her. Its amazing to see the difference in how make up can transform a women. But its not all in the make up. Celina is a super talented MUA who knows her stuff. She knows what looks good for the camera and for us ladies souls! She makes you look and feel a million dollars.

Mrs chantel Neil (Matthews)

“Her before and after photo's on her website and Facebook pages are a credit to her, I was blown away with what I saw, as soon as I was engaged Celina was one of the first things I booked as I knew she gets booked up really quickly as she is so good at what she does. She is friendly and bubbly but still remains professional. Celina has a calming influence but also knows when bridesmaids and brides should start getting in their dresses so is really handy to have around. My husband said to me when he first saw me on our wedding day that he didn't realise I could look as good as I did and was absolutely blown away with how Celina did my make up on the day. The saying is you get what you pay for and we certainly did, it was certainly worth the money. I had a make up lesson with Celina and she showed me how to apply make up from start to finish and recommended colours that suit me and brushes that she recommends to use and most importantly the techniques that she uses. Celina put me at ease and even write notes for me and so now I have something to refer to now that I am doing it myself. Celina is a credit to the make up industry and would deserve having the title of best make up artist for a second year in a row as she is incredible at the results she achieves. Celina to win!!”

Mrs Melissa Hill

“Because she is the best!”

Mrs Terri Haywood (jones)

“Highly recommended + such positive feedback from other brides. The before and after photos look incredible and I wanted to look 'a natural beauty' with flawless complexion and the best version of myself ever for my dream wedding day. Celina's web site was so comprehensive and I loved the sophisticated and fun feel to it; her zest, commitment and her talent shone through. This filled me with total confidence, excitement and I knew Celina was the only wedding make up artist I wanted and needed!”

Mrs Marina Caffrey (Andrews)
