I got this very special thank you note from Rachel after her trial run. . .
I wanted to thank you again for such a wonderful afternoon on Wednesday. Mum and I were just completely buzzing – not just because of what a wonderful job you did with our hair and make-up (and it really was WONDERFUL…who knew you would be able to make us both look like we had so much more hair!?!?!) but because we had such a wonderful afternoon with you. I’m not sure if I ever mentioned that my Dad passed away about 8 weeks ago after a battle with lung cancer, so the wedding preparations have been a little muted as we’ve had a difficult few months. You completely took us out of that feeling, and that you made Mum in particular feel so special, pampered and beautiful, is something I will be forever grateful for. After you left, Mum commented several times that you were one of the warmest, most interesting and all-round fabulous people she has met in such a long time – so you have fans for life!
To that end, we also wanted to extend an invitation to you to join us for the rest of the wedding day, as a guest. We won’t be offended at all if you’re not able to join us (or have a policy not to attend ‘client’ weddings – I’d completely understand that could get a bit much!!) but it would be lovely if you would like to join us. Your partner would of course be welcome too. We have been asked many times if we’re inviting hairdressers and vicars and florists and all the other people involved in preparing for the wedding and so far have been saying ‘no’ – so please know that this invitation is extended very warmly and not out of a sense of ‘oh, it’s probably polite’!!! As I say though, no expectation either way so do just let us know.
All best wishes until then
I was amazed and feel privileged . . .I love my job!
I’ll be popping in to see her for the evening reception . .
