When I stared looking for a make-up artist for my wedding I received a recommendation from a friend who had used Ashley. I didn't have an exact idea of what I wanted for my wedding make-up but Ashley did an amazing job talking me through what might work and what I might like for myself and my bridesmaids. I couldn't have asked for more, I was absolutely delighted on the day with all of our make-up. I wasn't at my best the morning of the wedding but Ashley did an amazing job of making me look and feel absolutely incredible. She brought a calm relaxing atmosphere to the room on the day and just made everyone feel instantly at ease. I felt this was particularly important as tensions can be high, but she has a calm nature that fills the room. She has worked on a lot of well known faces and I was delighted that she was available for me on the day. I would absolutely recommend Ashley's services for any occasion.

What can I say, Ashley O'Rourke is amazing. We had our destination wedding in Ireland and I did not have the luxury of trials prior to the week of my wedding day! She went out of her way to accommodate us, met us on her day off and welcomed us in her lovely home for my trial.
Ashley is incredibly talented. I needed two different looks - completely different looks and she did phenomenally with both. She is very detail oriented and made sure I looked perfect with both looks. She chose the perfect colouring for my skin tone. I have never felt so beautiful in my life, on my very special day, all thanks to Ashley!
Moreover, her personality surpasses her skill set. I felt like I was spending time with an old friend getting ready for my big day. She has such a kind heart and a lovely sense of humour, while remaining extremely professional.
Cannot say enough good things about this lovely lady! Thank you Ashley for not only being so dedicated and talented, but also an amazing woman overall.

I initially sent Ashley an email asking about her availability for me wedding and luckily for me she was free. From the moment we started exchanging emails, I liked her instantly. She was and is incredibly warm and lovely as well as being incredibly talented. From the first time I met her for my makeup trial I felt incredibly at ease. She listened to what I wanted and took so much time to go through several different options to make sure that I was happy with everything. To say I was would be putting in mildly! I was overjoyed! I left feeling beautiful and my make up was still perfect the next morning...I was only sorry I had to take it off! I was looking forward to seeing Ashley again on the morning of my wedding as not only did I have absolute confidence in her abilities but it was like meeting an old friend again. I trusted her completely and I was right to, I was amazed at my makeup and felt so comfortable, as did my bridesmaids. I think the ultimate testament is that one of my bridesmaids has booked Ashley for her own wedding! Thank you for everything Ashley, you are truly talented and I'm so fortunate to have been able to work with you!

Ashley was my makeup artist on my wedding day. She did mine, my bridesmaids and my mums makeup. We all had different styles that we wanted and she took everything on board making sure at stages throughout the process that everyone was happy with their makeup. I did my makeup trial with Ashley a few months before the wedding and immediately knew she would do a great job and also be both calm and good fun on the day. It's so important that you have someone who is professional but also relaxed and Ashley is! I was so happy with my makeup, my mum loved hers and both the bridesmaids looked so lovely. All of our makeup also lasted all day and night with no need for touch ups. I can't recommend Ashley enough, she will listen, advise and make you beautiful!

I cannot thank Ashley enough for the amazing job she did on the make up for my wedding. After my trial with Ashley I knew exactly how my make up would look and was really happy everything we had decided - with so much organising to do at the time knowing I could rely on her was brilliant. Myself, my Mum and all the bridesmaids were so thrilled with how we looked on the day. My make up looked flawless and yet it still felt natural from day through to night. I received endless compliments from our guests that I looked beautiful and 'glowing' - I know this was largely thanks to Ashley and her brilliant work. On the morning of the wedding Ashley was calm, relaxed and friendly yet utterly professional. We had such a lovely time getting ready and I am so glad that Ashley was part of that. I would recommend Ashley to any bride - she is truly talented and a lovely person to work with.

Ashley was an absolute pleasure to have around on the morning of my wedding. She has a very calm presence and you can't help but feel at ease in her company. I love her make up style, and my make up was exactly how I wanted it. My Mum and bridesmaids looked amazing too. My Makeup was still flawless by the time I was taking my make up off that night. (Even despite a very wet and windy day!) I couldn't recommend Ashely highly enough.

Ashley was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was so relaxed and friendly on the morning of the wedding that she put us all at ease and ensured we really enjoyed the process of getting ready. Her skills as a make-up artist are second to none, she is incredibly talented and we were all absolutely delighted with the results. My only complaint is that I can't work with her every day.
