I would never have booked with Mariessa had I known what the outcome of my hair and makeup would be for my wedding day and how stressful the process was.
To elaborate Mariessa wasn’t available on the actual day so sent her two ‘assistants’ to do the hair and makeup for myself and my bridal party (no discount provided).
Be warned her assistants are really inexperienced, one is her 19 yr old daughter. We all had to have our makeup and hair redone several times – think green eyeshadow and tendrils.
The main issue was that her assistants hadn’t been briefed at all about the look Mariessa and I had decided at my hair and makeup trial. So they turned up not knowing anything about what I wanted. Mariessa provided no apologies whatsoever but instead became incredibly defensive and blamed me for not taking notes or photos during my trial! That’s not how you run a business.
Anyway that wasn’t even the half of it, so please bride beware!!
