Rakhee you made my days (reception and walima) precious and made me feel amazing!
I got so many compliments and I felt and looked amazing.
If anyone is need of a hair and makeup artist for their wedding day I would highly recommend Rakhee as she is extremely good at what she does. I left it all in her hands (I wasn't quite sure what type of look to go for) the results for leaving it in Rakhee's capable hands… well they speak for themselves!!!
Loads of love! And thank you for making my day a day to remember!!
I chose Rakhee for my wedding day hair and make- up, initially because my sister had chosen Rakhee for her wedding. Therefore I knew that I was going to feel comfortable with her and that she would do a good job!
But the way that I felt on the actual day was just amazing! I was really, really pleased with my hair and make-up for both the civil and traditional wedding. She had some amazing ideas which just complemented my outfits perfectly. The overall 'look' was fantastic, and I received many compliments from friends and family.
However the main thing for me was that Rakhee was easy to work with, she listens to your ideas and is brilliant with family. In addition Rakhee made me feel completely at ease, on a very nerve racking morning and she made me look and feel so beautiful. Thank you so much as I have seen some of my professional photographs and I am very happy.

The first time I had spoken to Raks was over a brief phone conversation following a recommendation from a friend to do my bridal hair and makeup. Raks sounded very pleasant and helpful so I proceeded with booking a trial.
Raks was very flexible in times for when she could do the trial so one quiet Sunday afternoon she came round to my house and we went through colours and styles I was looking for. I was looking for two very different looks – a traditional bridal look for the wedding ceremony day and a more contemporary "princess look" for the reception. We tried different hairstyles and makeup combinations until I was happy, during this time Raks remained calm and took her time. She was very friendly – it didn't feel like we had just met, I had completely lost track of time! After the trial I had complete confidence that Raks would achieve the two looks I had dreamt off.
On the morning of the wedding, Raks turned up bright and early, she was one of the first people of many I saw that day so she saw the initial nervousness I felt as the "big day" had approached. However, those nerves soon disappeared as Raks and I got into conversation which took my mind of feeling nervous! Raks got me ready within the estimated time frame – we then opened the door of the room I was getting ready in to be faced by family/friends waiting to see what I looked like. I saw open mouths, teary eyes and heard gasps of "wow" with people saying "you look amazing". Raks did a fantastic job and the compliments kept flowing throughout the rest of that day.
The following day was the reception party; once again Raks had done a fantastic job! A completely different look to the previous day – it was when my uncle said to me "Monica you looked like a princess when I saw you walk into the room" that I knew that the look I wanted to achieve was certainly portrayed in other people's eyes. I definitely felt like a princess and that's all thanks to Raks for talking away the nervousness, making me feel calm and making me feel like a million dollars.
Thank you Rakhee, I'll definitely be coming to you again for future functions we have!
"Not only is Rakhee brilliant at what she does, but she does it at a reasonable price. She'll do everything she can to make your special day EXTRA special. She listens to what you want, working with your best features and works quickly. I loved her because she was fantastic to get on with and made me look better than I could ever imagine. I'd recommend her to everyone."
Rakhee, Just wanted to say a big thanks for all your hard work in making me look the most beautiful bride in the world. I've used you twice now and can highly recommend you to anyone who wants their wedding makeup done by a professional make-up artist. Rakhee is prompt, extremely reliable and offers a hassle free service. She made my whole day stress FREE giving me one less thing to worry about. Rakhee defiantly knows how to calm your last minute nerves and makes you feel on top of the world. I felt like a princess and it was all down to Rakhee's amazing skills.
Thank you again! Keep up the good work….
Rakhee is a very professional, talented and a creative make up artist. I used Raks Bridal for my Engagement / Civil Ceremony, Wedding with Mehndi and Reception and was very happy with the results every single time. I found Rakhee very versatile and full of ideas, with knowledge of all the latest trends. Her ability to create different looks was just what I needed with so many events to think about. Rakhee was reliable and very well organised. I would absolutely recommend her if you are looking for a make up artist for your big day!!!
Just wanted to say a big thank you to you for doing my hair and make up twice on the same day, you were absolutely brilliant to work with and very patient even when I was getting harassed with phone calls from family to hurry up and get to the reception... I don't think anyone else could of done better or even compare to your work, I honestly think you are the best and I would recommend you to everyone... the mehndi was perfect, everyone couldn't believe how well is was done and how intricate the detail was on my hands... 100% credit to you Rakhee...
I wish you all the best and any time I know I have an event to go to, I will most definitely contact you to do my hair and make up... and thank you once again.
"Thank you Raks for the exceptional services you have provided over the years for me and my family especially when it was my time to be the Bride.
You have such a great professional yet friendly approach. I had many compliments on the day, my make up looked and felt flawless through out the whole day. As always, will definitely be calling you for any future events forthcoming as well as recommending your services to others. "

Hi Rakhee I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the fantastic hair and makeup and making me and my mummy look so special on my wedding day. You truly transformed me and your hard work was complimented all day long.
All in all, I would like to say that Rakhee is very professional and unique in her work. As well as listening to me, she gave her own ideas ensuring that I looked my best!! The makeup felt very light and lasted all day even through the constant heat and sweating. She made me feel very comfortable and I would recommend her to anyone who is getting married or even attending a special occasion.
Thanks again for the fantastic job, I still can't stop looking at my wedding pix and admiring myself!! (PS my hubby thought I looked amazing..)
Ever since I met Rakhee at a wedding exhibition, I knew she was the hair\make-up artist I would have on my Special Day.
2 years later I met my prince and the day we set our dates for our occasions, Rakhee was the first call to book for my events, I was so excited as she said Yes.
Rakhee did my hair and make-up for my Civil, Sagai, Mehndi and Wedding day. Rakhee also did my Mehndi which was all up my arms to my shoulders and to my knees, which was amazing!!
Rakhees natural ability and her warm and caring nature made me feel totally relaxed whilst I was with her, I felt great and very special from start to finish and was extremely ecstatic with her work. I never felt stressed at all even though was a stressful time, we joked as I was so calm Rakhee thought there was something wrong with me!!! I felt Rakhee was very professional, had a great attitude which was very calming and because she's a perfectionist she won't dress u and rush u to finish her work.
Thank you so much Rakhee for making my special days memorable by making me feel so special throughout my entire wedding.
A very talented and lovely person who makes you up to accentuate your beauty instead of making ypu look like something you are not!!
A HUGE thank you for doing my bridal make up and hair. Having been recommended by a close friend, we contacted Rakhee, then went for an initial consultation, where we discussed the colours I would be wearing on the day, the jewellery and accessories and how my duputta/dress would work depending on how my hair was done. All my fears and anxieties were put at ease as we went through each category of how best to match and essentially the colour co- ordination would work to what I would be wearing. Rakhee recommended types of lipsticks that would work for me, and the hair style. I felt so confident I didn't have a trial… (Yes that's true.. no trial). On the day Rakhee arrived as agreed, and set about in a professional way in transforming me into the bridal look I required, the make up she provided was quality. She took her time and made me feel so comfortable throughout the whole process. Everything from the hair bun, all make up, accessories, to the tie back pins was provided and any extras that were needed sorted out. To sum up, the pictures show the look I wanted and I was so happy inside. I would 110% recommend Rakhee to any would be bride to try, as they say..."Because your worth it"
Rakhee has such great style and natural flare in all areas of her bridal services. She is a perfectionist cos she loves what she does and I know she does! From her hair ideas, to her make up and mehendhi designs, I just think what Rakhee does is amazing! She completely transformed me throughout all my wedding related occassions and gave me a range of different looks and I was just real glad to have booked her, cos I just love her work! We discussed what I wanted for each of my events and Rakhee made some suggestions and recommendations and also advised me of what accessories I would need to enhance my look. Rakhee looks at the bigger picture in everything she does and doesn't forget the final touches. Rakhee also dressed my Mum and my sisters and is completely accommodating with timings and will fit trials and early morning starts around you, which is exactly what every bride needs. In fact I think every bride needs Rakhee! Thank you Rakhee for making me look beautiful, and thank you so much for agreeing to do all my events - civil, sagai, pro-photo shoot, mehendhi and wedding so far, can't wait to work with you on for my final event my reception! And I can't wait to see my photos, cos I already know that with what you did for me, they will look absolutely great! Thank you so much for everything Rakhee, I won't forgot what you've done for me xx
A big thankyou for making me look and feel really special on my wedding day and sagai (engagement day). The looks you did for me were amazing, as was the intricate and beautiful mehndi. I had lots of lovely compliments family and friends. Your friendly, understanding, and professional nature made the days lots of fun and memorable too. Really pleased - fab work!
One word to describe Raks and her services – WOW!!! Words cannot express my gratitude to you Raks.
Initially I chose Rakz to do my bridal make up services for her intricate henna designs, every bride has aspirations for her day and I loved her henna and really wanted the finest for the day!
I was also after convenience, therefore I wanted an all in one package, hair, make up, henna and dressing, I wasn't sure about what she knew or her experience in those other areas, but decided to go for the trial (thank God I did). The trial absolutely blew me away with her professionalism, her artistic flair and what she could do with me, just about anything. I thought I had it all planned, what I wanted to look like, but she had better ideas!
In all my occasions she made me feel like a star, I know I looked amazing and the fact that everyone until this day still asks, who did my day and can we have the details. You get people exaggerating on testimonials but no matter how much I exaggerate its not enough to describe Rak's work! See for yourself and you will know exactly know what I mean!
