I would like to offer a very special thank you for the fantastic job you did organising the hair and makeup for my bridesmaids and I on my Wedding Day.  I had no doubt in my mind that you would do an amazing job with our hair on the day and you certainly did not disappoint! Katina also did a wonderful job with all of our makeup making us all look beautiful, but still natural.  Exactly what I was looking for – modified, improved versions of ourselves but still, us.

After meeting with you and having my hair trial I knew that I was in good hands.  You have such a bubbly, friendly manner which put me at ease straight away – then you started talking hairstyles and I knew I had a winner!  You always listened to what I wanted and accommodated every question, wish or change that I had with a positive, no worries attitude.  What impressed me the most was that nothing was too much effort for you – even after I changed my mind with a different hairstyle and makeup.

Everything turned out beautifully on the day.  My bridesmaids looked absolutely stunning and I was beyond excited with my final results as the hair and makeup all came together.  My hair and makeup lasted all day – even with all of the kisses, hugs and the strong wind that decided to stay put throughout the event!

I would not hesitate in recommending your services to any prospective bride or, for that matter, anyone wishing to have an amazing hairstyle for a special event.  You are a true gem.

Hi Diane,

So sorry its taken so long, only just received the wedding photos today.
Thank you so so much for everything that you did that day. The hair for all the girls and myself and the make up was fantastic.Nikita 3
You made the look and feel of the whole day complete.
To receive amazing compliments about our hair from Simons Grandparents (who are also very accomplished hairdressers) I think is the biggest compliment to yourself and your assistant.
I am truly thankful for the amazing job you did, Thank you so much.
Attached are some really nice photos.
Thank you again


Di, we love you! From first contact right up until the big day you made everything flow so easily! A VERY nervous bride (me) instantly calmed down once in your professional care. You made my little niece sit calmly and happily while you whipped her hair into a wonder of gorgeous curls. You managed to fit my sister in law in without a flicker of an eyelash and her hair looked amazing! And me … the ‘I’m freaking out’ bride … well, instantly I calmed down at the touch of your professional hands, kind words and wonderful personality. Our hair not only looked GORGEOUS as we walked out the door and down the aisle but was the ‘talk of the night’ AND was still gorgeously intact to the late closing hours of the evening.

Would us gals recommend you? YES! YES! YES! And we have been ever since!

My advice to those reading this, if you wish to have at least one stress removed from your big event, give Di a call and tick that box that says “need professional stress-free hair stylist”

Lots of love Chelle, Arwen & Bec

Never Disappointed I work 2 jobs and have always found it hard to get a appointment to get my hair done. The first time i called Di she fit me in that day. She’s super friendly and very reasonably priced and a couple of weeks ago i got my hair straighten using the Brazilian Keratin treatment. It’s amazing!!! my hair is super soft and so easy to manage now. I will def be going back!!!


Thankyou Di! When my baby was born he was in and out of hospital and with my other two children, I found it very difficult to get out to get my hair and beauty treatments done. Di was like an angel that came to my home and helped ‘beautify’ me when I needed it the most. Since then Di has been to my home several times to do cuts, colours, eye brow and lash tints and styles for my special occasions out. Every time my kids have been home and Di has been wonderful in working around this and I have been thrilled with every service she has provided. The latest treatment I have had is the brazilian keratin treatment (hair straightening). I have ALWAYS wanted straight hair but of course my was curly. When Di told me about it I signed up immediately. I looooove it!! Finally after 35 years I have the hair I want. My hair looks like Di has been over every day! Thanks for letting me know about it but ssshhh we can’t tell everyone!!! 🙂

Carly's weddingI just wanted to personally thank you for making my wedding hair so very spectacular. We were all very comfortable with you, as you worked so tirelessly through being recently quite ill. It was amazing that you were able to make all of our hair so similar, yet so different. Mum’s hair was also stunning and very appropriate. We thank you for your professionalism and attention to detail, and for bringing thousands of bobby pins!! Looking forward to recommending you to any future bride I may cross paths with.

Hello Diane.  Firstly I would like to thank yourself for organising my hair and make-up booking and secondly a big thank you to Alana Mevissen who did such a wonderful job on the trial and again on the big day. She also did a great job in looking after my elderly mother on short notice.  Had many lovely comments and the photos have come up very well — considering my age!!  Please find attached some trial pics and pics from the day as well.   I would highly recommend your company to any prospective bride.
Kind Regards

Hi Di,  A few wedding pics — some starting to trickle through — all commented on how lovely Kate and I looked so a big thank you for making us feel like princesses for the day!

Tamara and Mark's weddingI would like to thank Di from Ultimate Brides Hair and Make Up for making my wedding experience such a special and stress-free one. Di at all times made me feel special and important, whether it was simply at a hair/make up trial, and on the big day itself. My five bridesmaids, my mother and myself all had our hair and makeup done on the day and we could not have been happier, we all felt so beautiful. Di travelled to the Gold Coast for my wedding and we greatly appreciate that. So thank you to Di and the girls for a fantastic experience, I would recommend them to anybody whether it be for just hair, or both
Tamara Wilson

Thanks so much for doing our hair and makeup for our wedding. Our hair stayed perfect for the entire day as did the makeup. I will send you some photographs when I get the professional ones back from the photographer. In the interim here are some shots that show our hair etc and how well it stood up.

I found you extremely accommodating, nothing was too much trouble for you either in the lead up and on the day. You made me feel so at ease from our vey first meeting, you welcomed me into your home like an old friend. You listened to what I wanted and complemented it with your professional touch.. Monique and Suzzie who I had not meet before the wedding day were fantastic. They arrived at our hotel on time and ready to go. Everything ran smoothly from the minute they arrived. They actually managed to make me calmer, obviously because they are a part of weddings all the time they knew just what to say to calm the nerves. The service we received did not stop at hair and makeup, they helped my friends choose what dresses to wear, suggested nail polish colours and just generally immersed themselves in my wedding. It was great, more like having extra friends there, rather than hair and makeup artists. Over all I could not have been happier. Thank you all so much!!

Majella's weddingDear Di, Thank you so much for doing the hair for our wedding. Everyone look absolutely stunning! I had so many people comment on how beautiful my hair was…it truly was the best hair-do I have ever had. You are so very talented!  I felt amazing at the wedding. It was the best day of my life. Thank you for contributing to the day and making it so special for me.  See you soon!
Richard & Majella Eva (nee Till!!!)

We had a wonderful wedding, the hair and makeup was perfect! I had so many comments on my hair. It was exactly what I asked for and lasted all day. The makeup was fresh looking all day. I recommend the air brushing as it made me look flawless without heavy makeup. The eyelashes were excellent too!  Both bridesmaids were really happy with their hair and makeup. One bridesmaid was so impressed she is giving your details to her sister-in-law who is getting married in April next year.  Both girls were very experienced and easy to work with. I would recommend Ultimate Bridal to anyone, in fact have passed some cards on already.

Hi Di,  Firstly, I would like to thank you and Jesse for doing such a wonderful job on all the girls hair and of course, my hair. We all received so many comments and to let you know, even after wild dancing, our hair still seemed to stay in and look amazing.  Thank you once again and take care.
Warm regards,

Dear Di,  I would like to give a big thank you to you and your team for the fantastic job you had done with the hair and make-up for our wedding on Valentine’s Day 2009. I honestly can’t fault you on anything with your service and quality of work and I don’t normally provide testimonials but you definitely deserve one so am giving you my first ever. I know it was kept in mind when doing our hair and make-up that we may encounter wet weather at some point during the day, which as it turned out we did, but both our hair and make-up remained perfect much to our delight so a big hug for that. Your pre-wedding trial and service was fantastic and both you and the make-up team listened and were able to create what I was after quickly and creatively with different options in case they interested me. You were flexible and happy to change things at anytime to suit myself without any fuss and this was great. I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know who is seeking out a hair and make-up artist in the future and will keep you as my ‘at home’ hairdresser. This service is also wonderful especially with 2 children; I don’t have to juggle them in a salon and can relax in my own home.
Kind Regards,

From the moment I walked in to have my hair and make-up trial until I finally got to bed on my wedding night I was impressed with the professional service and friendly nature of Di and her team. I was extremely pleased with my hair and make-up trial and walked out knowing that my bridesmaids and I would be in good hands on the day. I had the utmost confidence in their ability as well as their advice both before the wedding and on the day. The team arrived bright and early on the day with beaming smiles and helped to make us feel at ease, joking and telling stories with us. We were all very happy with the wonderful job they did. They made us all look amazing – something we’d never had been able to achieve by ourselves. Our wedding was outside and it was very windy during the ceremony. I was worried my hair wouldn’t hold up under the conditions but the curls stayed in even after a long night of dancing. I can’t express how happy I was with the service, I would recommend Di and her team to anyone wanting to look perfect on their wedding day.

Hi Di,  Thank you so much for making my day so perfect. I really felt at ease straight away with you which was really important as hair is such an important part of looking your best. I absolutely loved what you did with my hair and the girls, even Mum! Everybody commented on the style and it stayed put all night long! Your professionalism, and friendly manner really made me feel comfortable and confident that I was going to look my best. Again, a huge thanks for that – I don’t think I could have trusted anybody else. I would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a stylist for their big day.

Hi Di !  Well where do I start…… The trial run before was great as it gave us ideas of different ways to do our hair …… you arrived on the wedding morning even before myself and Bridesmaids 🙂 The whole morning you were extremely professional yet put me at ease about the day ahead…… The Hair and Make-up…….. it was FABULOUS……. they both lasted the whole day long.  Thank you SO much for being a wonderful part of my special day and for helping make it a day to remember!!!!
Diane Tremble 🙂

Thank you so much for all your efforts, my girls look absolutely amazing and I felt like a princess! We all found you very professional and easy going, thanks again.  Di you did a fab job!
Kim Dalamaras

Hi Di!  Just a quick email to let you know that the wedding was absolutely fantastic! We had the most perfect weather, no drama’s, I really couldn’t have asked for a better wedding day. Cheryl did an absolutely amazing job with my hair, and the other girls as well. I know they were all really happy.  Thank you again for helping to make my dream wedding day!

Ultimate Bridal were polite, helpful and willing to answer any questions or queries that I had in a timely manner. At the trail Diane was professional, timely and up front. Diane took photos from every different angle to ensure that she documented the hair style for the day. A running sheet was completed for the day and emailed to myself prior to the wedding day. I was contacted the day before to confirm times, requirements and any last questions we had prior to the day. On the day, Ultimate Bridal Hair and Make-up arrived early and professionally completed myself, my two bridesmaids and my mother’s hair. Diane was a breath of fresh air. I am grateful that she did our hair. I would recommend her services to anyone for both bridal and other functions.

Hi my lovely,  Well what a perfect day we had! Thank you for your beautiful styling of our hair – so many people commented on the great job you did.

Dearest Di,  I would like to take this opportunity to thank both yourself and Lucie for the wonderful service you provided me and the girls with on our wedding day. We were all thrilled with how stunning our hair looked and continued to get charming comments about it throughout the day.   You were by far the most organised and professional company I dealt with over the course of my wedding preparations.  It has been a delight working with you through out the process of organising my wedding and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone I meet.  I hope we can work together again one day in the near future.

First of all, I have to tell you that everyone told me how gorgeous I looked on my wedding day.. My husband was speechless when he saw me.. a very big thank you to u and Diane.. You gals did an amazing job.. I thought my sister and my mum looked absolutely beautiful.. the make up lasted all day even after a little crying and the hair styles stayed even after alot of dancing.. You gals made me, my mum and my sister look great on the best day of my life.. the hair styles were amazing and the make up was great.. again, thank you so much.. you gals were absolutely brilliant..

I would like to thank you and Di again for your amazing work and fantastic service, our day wouldn’t have been as perfect without all of your hard work and effort. All my girls and myself were more than happy with the outcome of our hair and makeup so thank you from the bottom of our hearts, keep up the good work.

I love the work these two women do… you only have to look at the photos to see ‘magic at work!!!. We all looked like hollywood movie stars (flawless), and still looked like us. We enjoyed sharing a part of the day with Di and Monique because they made it fun. They are very professional and arrived at the house before the bridesmaids and still did a great job! Thanks to you I will have photos that I adore and will show all generations to come –

The girls and I were very delighted with the styles that were achieved for Alana’s special day. I would recommend Diane Shirley and the team at Ultimate Bridal Hair and Make up to anyone looking for a fantastic hairstylist.

Bride and bridesmaidsHi Di, Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for Saturday… everyone looked beautiful all thanks to you! You made us all feel relaxed and we all really enjoyed your company. Thanks again and hope to see you again soon.
Take care

Hello Di,  After using Ultimate Bridal Hair and Makeup for my daughter’s recent Year 12 formal, we would like to share with you our total satisfaction. Rachel and her friends were very pleased with the end results and all agreed on how helpful, professional and understanding you were. We all know who to use again in the future.
Thank you sincerely
