Thank you for your beautiful work! Loved every moment of it!

And you were soooo right about the veil! Had almost everyone stepping and tugging on it all day! But thanks to your brilliant idea, the veil didn’t rip! Highly recommend him to every bride to be in Phuket!

Neil Donkin made my wedding day! The bridesmaids looked stunning, the moms felt like royalty, and I couldn’t have been happier with my hair and makeup for the big day. Neil and his team are friendly, professional, and oh-so-talented!

I cannot thank you enough for being the most wonderful hair and makeup artist for our wedding this month. You really were like another bridesmaid! Filled with tips of what not to eat, how to care for my dress, layout of the wedding in our villa – you were a dream! Your experience and confidence made us all feel in very safe hands.

Thank you to you and your wonderful team for adding another dimension to how special the day was. I cannot recommend you highly enough!!! Will send pictures as soon as we get them :)

Dear Neil,

Thank you SO much for all you did with us all for Kim’s wedding. You did a great job and we all looked so amazing. Kimmy was a stunning bride and looked natural and beautiful. You captured each one of us for who we are and it was so lovely to see everyone happy, relaxed & feeling relieved that we didn’t look like someone we weren’t.

Thank you also for doing my hair, I loved it & that was a real bonus for me. We really appreciate all you did. May you have many more happy & successful years doing what you love.

Really wonderful to meet you and thank you again for your professionalism on the day. We all felt and looked beautiful.

To Neil Donkin,

I simply say you are a miracle worker for turning this ugly duckling into a seeming swan. Also the bridesmaids were simply angelic, you’re the best.


Ashley ~ Doncaster UK
Neil is an amazing make up artist there is no doubt about it. He did the makeup for my wedding and I could not have asked for anyone better. Neil drew my face with such skill, and accentuated my features so carefully and subtly, allowing me to look so natural yet obviously refined. Neil went out of his way to ensure I had everything I needed ie flowers for my hair and he listened patiently to all my requests. All my guests loved his work, and were singing his praises.

Above all, Neil is such a warm and genuine person. He made me feel so at ease with him and that is so important for a nervous bride. I am so blessed to have met Neil and to have him do my make up because I now not only have beautiful photographs and memories of the wedding but also a friend for life.

Thanks Neil Donkin!

Dear Neil..

Just a quick note to say thank you so very much for doing my hair and makeup for my wedding. Being a Hairdresser and Make Up Artist myself I was a little nervous as you can imagine, but you made me feel really comfortable and you did such a beautiful job. I was very very happy. You also went out of your way to stay and help us do the final touches before we left.

Thank you again from James and I and my mums. You are such a delight and I would definitely recommend you to anyone marrying in the beautiful country of Thailand.

Thank you thank you thank you.. xxxxx

Dear Neil,

Hope you’re well. Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your effort & hard work making us look beautiful on my wedding day. You really did such an incredible job & I couldn’t have been happier with my hair & make up & Trine the bridesmaid looked stunning, as did Charlotte & the Mum’s. Not only did you make us look amazing, you saved the day with my dress & managed to keep me laughing through the accidental episode of champagne spilt on brides dress…

Thanks again, I will be highly recommending you & your team.

Hi Neil

The wedding was utterly perfect, wouldn’t have changed a thing (expect for it to never end!) You were absolutely amazing and perfect to have with us whilst we were getting ready – a very calming influence which was needed, particularly for my dad!!

I certainly wouldn’t have looked as good without you working your magic! Was perfect

Thank you so much and I can’t wait to see the photos as well!


Vicky ~ Singapore
Hi Neil

Thanks so much for your assistance on the day. The hair and make-up looked great and thanks for lacing me up. Mum said that she wouldn’t have been able to do such a great job with the lace up.

Thanks again

Hi Neil,

Just wanted to say a massive thanks for Saturday! I absolutely loved my hair and makeup, didn’t want to take it off at the end of the night! Got so many compliments and me and the girls all loved how we looked.


Betsey ~ Hong Kong
5 months after my daughter Caroline’s wedding, we are still talking about the wonderful Neil Donkin.

The Bride, 3 Bridesmaids, Bride’s Aunt and I were locked in a villa for over 5 hours with Neil and his team and it was such a special experience. Caroline was delighted with the looks at both the trial and the evening of the rehearsal dinner and we were not disappointed on the day.

The day was a relaxed and happy one. The photographs (#Liam Collard Photography and #Stam Images) show how calm we all were and also how our hair and makeup lasted from the ceremony right through to the last dance in hot and humid Thailand.

Thank you, Neil. I have 2 more daughters, so hope to see you again soon!


Gillian ~ Sydney, Australia

I really appreciate your help as I had no idea haha.

All the best to you for the future. You honestly made my day a breeze.

Thank you!

Love Hilary xx
