In the last week, we have had two major wins to wrap up an already great 2018. At the annual Australian Bridal Industry Awards, Gemma Nichols Hair and Makeup Artistry walked away as the winners of Best Makeup Artist. Then, to our delight – Elle Magazine named us in their list of top wedding makeup artists in Sydney.
These two wins are an appropriate end to a year of handwork and wonderful weddings. They both represent the core elements of our business: loving our clients and providing excellent service. The Australian Bridal Industry Awards (ABIA) are awarded based solely on client votes. This makes the achievement even sweeter, knowing that our win is credited to our happy brides alone. During the voting process, we were elated to hear from some of our past clients:
‘Fantastic friendly service with amazing results down to the last detail. Couldn’t of been happier!’
‘Gemma is not only THE most beautiful person but so too if she incredibly talented and so good at what she does. I was so completely thrilled by my bridal makeup and so too were my bridesmaids & mother. Nothing short of five stars!’
‘Gem and her staff are all amazing! She made my bridesmaids and I feel so totally relaxed! Gem made me look and feel so beautiful on my wedding day I can’t thank her enough! I really wish I could have Gem at my house every day to make me feel as good as I did on my wedding day! Gem you are truly amazing!’
We are all about our clients. Every decision we make, every early wake-up, every product chosen, every extra minute spent is to make them feel amazing. The appreciation of this dedication shown in our receipt of the ABIA award is such a wonderful reward. Our team could not be happier!
The second surprise, our mention in Elle Magazine (https://www.elle.com.au/wedding/wedding-makeup-artists-sydney-19508), represents our second core value – excellence. We pride ourselves on our commitment to being the best. We don’t take this lightly either! We work hard to stay at the forefront of style and technique and our team is known for their professionalism (and their awesome personalities!). So, to have our striving for excellence officially recognised by Elle is a great encouragement. We believe that our combined expertise, high quality products and dedication are a magic combination – giving us a competitive edge in the busy Sydney bridal market.
2018 has been another big year for us. With a bustling team of incredibly talented hair and makeup artists serving hundreds of clients, we have faced challenges and successes this year. Our work often has us on the edge of our seats and places us in high-pressure situations where our creativity thrives. We have also had the privilege of getting to know more of our treasured clientele this year. We love standing beside them on their special days – be that their wedding, an event or just another day in front of the camera. 2018 has been another great year of using our skills and passion to make you look and feel your very best.
Thank you to everyone who helped solidify our place on the map this year. Thank you to everyone who voted. Thank you to everyone who chose us. Thank you to all of you who continue to support us. Cheers to even bigger and better things in 2019!
