First things first…Congratulations on your engagement!

This is such a personal time in your life and what an incredible right of passage.

It can be stressful but take a breath – you and I…we got this!

I recommend you have a trial several weeks before the wedding at the earliest (although no trial is ok too). It’s totally up to you!

I would be available to you and the rest of your bridal party or anyone else as well, mother of the bride and groom or other family members or even guests.

I can put together any number of assistants depending on what you require.

I usually leave when I’m finished with hair and makeup and should you need me to stay longer then please arrange that with me at an extra cost.

MAIL ME your requirements for an enquiry on my prices and availability and we’ll take it from there…

Please don’t be concerned if you don’t get an immediate response as my schedule gets very busy – sometimes very long days where that project needs me to focus on the job at hand but I promise to get back to you when you have my full attention. Your enquiry is very important to me and I prefer not to be distracted when we discuss your wedding day.

I do prefer it if you would communicate via email only instead of social media apps as it helps me to keep track of our discussions by following our email trail.

After your wedding day, please do send me a few pics along with a testimonial of what it was like to use my services.

Thanking you in advance and looking forward to being part of your wedding experience.

 Just want to thank you again for making me look so stunning….loved it and will surely recommend you to anyone.

– Monique Bloem – December 2013

A thousand thank you’s for making me look so spectacular on my wedding day! Looking at my pictures I still can’t believe how stunning the makeup was. For someone who doesn’t normally use makeup, I just accepted that it would be uncomfortable wearing what I thought would be a heavy mask for the full day. That was not the case though. You knew exactly what to, even though I had not even been for a trial session. The products were so light, it felt like i was not wearing any makeup. I was totally comfortable all day, my makeup lasted till the very end – in fact I did not want to take it off!  I felt every bit the blushing bride and received so many lovely compliments. Also, thank you for squeezing me in your busy schedule on short notice and for being such a ‘calmer’ on my big day :). It was a wonderful experience. I’m definitely recommending you to all my friends!

You transformed me into the most beautiful me I’ve ever been. The make-up was perfect and lasted all day and night. And my goodness it looks stunning on the pictures (yes, you were right, more was better).I received many compliments from guests. My bridesmaids were also very impressed with your work (they looked amazing) and I have at least one bridal client for you in the future (Colleen) J Thanks for being cool, easy to talk to and just keeping me relaxed on the day. You really are a wonderful person.

 I’d just like to thank you again for your amazing work. I just wanted to thank you for making me look fabulous on my wedding day and especially helping me out on such short notice! I loved everything about what you did from the hair to the make up! Everyone complimented me on it and a lot of people wanted to know who did it… So once again thank you, you did a brilliant job. Regards

Shanaaz Alexander was the makeup artist at my wedding on 5 March 2011 at Rockhaven, Elgin.
I chose her for more than one reason: As a journalist I have worked with her and personally seen the celebrity shoots she’s done (Jo-Ann Strauss, Charlene Truter, Denise Newman, to name just a few). I was very impressed. The other reason is that Shanaaz’s personality is of the calming and organized type. She knows just when to give the bride (or celeb) some quiet time to calm down or when to get working when the pressure gets high. Our wedding day went absolutely perfect for exactly these reasons. Shanaaz calmed me when there were too many people crowding me before the ceremony, but she also did exactly what I asked her with the makeup. I felt like a modern version of Sophia Loren or Liz Taylor. The makeup lasted all night (I didn’t want to take it off either) and I felt so confident, I barely checked the mirror. When I finally did check the mirror, I didn’t want to stop looking! I can recommend her makeup and hair styling to anyone – whether a celebrity or a bride – she’ll make you look your absolute best. Kind regards.

Dearest Shanaaz,
Thank uuuu sooo much in helping myself, my sister and mum be the most gorgeous girls at the wedding!

I truly appreciate everything you did for me and especially calming my mum down and being so generous in re-touching her make-up and extra TLC for her hair, means the world to me as she is the most important person in my life (other than my husband :-))
