Jess and Jen were amazing on my wedding day! Both lovely and professional ladies and very efficient - everyone was looking absolutely amazing with time to spare!!! Jen did an amazing job of doing my hair (absolutely loved it), and the bridesmaids hair looked fantastic as well. Jess did a beautiful job with the makeup for the whole wedding party (Bride, bridesmaids and mother of the bride) exactly what I asked - lovely and natural and it lasted all night long. Jess also gave me a nice natural spray tan the week of the wedding which helped to bring everything together on the day. Everything worked out perfectly - very happy bride - Jess & Jen were fantastic! x

-Hayley Le Roy, Dunedin

Had my bridal party make up done through beautiful bride and loved it! Also had our spray tans done by Jess and she was a star, she made my bridesmades feel so comfortable about the whole being nuddy situation :). Over all Jess and her team went the xtra mile to make sure our day was special and I would recommend her and her team 10/10

-Stacey Ferguson, Dunedin

Jen was amazing. so professional felt like my best friend. even told my 10 year old who was keen on learning make up some tips and I couldn't have asked for a better person to make me feel like a princess. I've never worn makeup or had my hair done in my life and my hubby to be at the time cried at our first look. can't recommend her enough

-Stef Mortimer, Dunedin

Jess did make up, nails and tans for me, my Mum and bridesmaids. She did such an awesome job and everyone commented on how friendly and chilled out she was. Nothing was ever a problem and she just made the whole process such a breeze. Thank you so much!

-Rowan Allison, Dunedin

Jen did an absolutely beautiful job on our hair for my wedding. She was so adaptable when I started changing my mind last minute about how I wanted to look. She completely understood the look I was going for and transformed my thin straight hair to a curly voluminous up do. Jen brought a calm and confident presence to the morning and helped us all feel at ease (a hard job when there's the bride, best friend, two young children, parents and grandparents all getting ready in a tiny house!)

-Emily Frith, Dunedin

Absolutely love these girls, they did an amazing job of my bridesmaids and I for my wedding!!!

My wedding was perfect! You all did amazing I felt so beautiful 😍

-Sara Ham, Port Chalmers

Jess and Jen were absolutely amazing on my wedding day in late February and they made the whole day stress free and so chilled. Jess did an amazing job on my eyebrows, tan, pedicure and manicure and an excellent job on my wedding make up. Jen did an absolute amazing job on my bridesmaid's make up and was very patient and accommodating of my bridesmaids, as not all my bridesmaids, usually wear make up, so she was very understanding and patient of their personal preferences. I would highly recommend Beautiful Bride, for all your beauty needs, if you are planning your wedding. :)

-Chelsey Fegan, Dunedin

I have had the absolute privilege of working with Jess on a number of projects together. She maintains the upmost professionalism when working, she is so easy to get along with and makes her clients feel at ease, and her make-up and hair skills are phenomenal. I would not hesitate to recommend her, use her, or work with her again in the future. If I could rate her higher than 5 stars, I would!

-Kat Hill, Photographer

I had the privilege of having Jess and Jen on the morning of my wedding, they did an absolutely amazing job on our makeup and everyone loved their tans that jess done the night before! I couldn't of asked for better! They went above and beyond their duties to make sure the morning went smoothly! Wouldn't change a thing!

-Kelly Sutherland, Dunedin

Jess was fab! She had my mind at ease the whole time. She follows up afterwards to make sure that everything went well which is also fantastic! If you or someone you know is getting married Beautiful Bride has to be at the top of the list!

-Ashlee Low, Dunedin

Jess and her team were amazing on my wedding day they did my bridesmaid mum and my hair and make up on the day. Also Jess gave me a tan did my brows and lashes during the week after the rough week I had I felt like a million bucks. We had two crazy toddlers running around and they were still both professional. Just wanna say a big thanks to Jess and her team. I would recommend her very highly and no bride would regret this decision. So thanks Jess:)

-Jenna Weir, Dunedin 

I've trusted Jess to do my hair and makeup on my special day. Plus makeup for my closest family.
I couldn't have chosen a better person to do it ! She's very professional, relaxed (very appreciated on this stressful day 😂) and is really listening to your wishes !She could create the perfect look to match my dress, wedding vibe and personality (the purple lippy was such a good choice!!!) When I look back on the photos taken that day I still can't believe that this beautiful bride is me ! Thank you again for all your talent 💖

-Rachel Blyth, Wanaka

There’s something to be said about good old fashion service. Not only did Jess do an amazing job on my hair, makeup & nails, it was all organised overseas, via Facebook messenger, only a few weeks before the wedding. Jess was a delight to communicate and work with and I highly recommend her. Thanks for bringing calm and grace to my special day.

-Narelle Urbanowicz, Pine Hill, Dunedin

They were lovely to work with and that altered to any needs that were requested. I got married in Feb and I am a bit slow making this review but I have been meaning to get around to it. they are awesome!! and beautiful job too. very cool xxx

-Jess Hamill, Dunedin

The makeup was fantastic. The photos turned out great and despite mum thinking she had too much highlighter or whatever on, she did in fact look great in the photos as Jen knew she would! It rained the whole afternoon and our photos were taken in the pouring rain, although you can't really tell. My makeup held well.

Thanks so much for having the flexibility to travel to the farm. I had a lot of stress beforehand worrying about trying to find a venue in town to get it done. It was really great to be able to relax at home and get it done. Until we had booked you I thought I would have to hire a hotel room just to get makeup done. 

Jacqui Allison, Dunedin

I asked Jess to come and do my own bridal make up and hair, my mum's and her best friends make up and hair and a spray tan (my 1st ever)

Jess came out to my home in Milton for the rehearsal and I instantly felt that i could trust her with how I looked on the biggest day of my life. she put me at ease, and made me feel confident in my own, breaking out and sad looking skin. My rosacea has been a constant issue for me for years, and in one afternoon Jess made all of my anxieties and embarrassment go away. I know that she was the person I wanted to make me feel and look my best on my wedding day.

On the wedding day Jess arrived early even though our location was totally rural and off the grid. She was completely professional throughout, but still incredibly friendly and personable. My hair turned out better than I ever expected ... pinterest worthy! and my make up looked amazing, very classic and not top much just like I had requested. It lasted the whole day and night even though the sun blazed down on us all day. My hair and make up earned as much praise as my dress in the end. My mum and her friend received compliments galore too, and were feeling great all day because of it.

I cant recommend these ladies enough ... if I have friends getting married in the future I know who I will insist handles their hair and make up. 10/10 ♡

Sebrina Sayer, Milton

"Hi Jess, hope you're having a great week! Wedding went really well, we did the ceremony indoor due to weather but at least it stopped when I got out of the carraige. Don't worry about the change, please keep it as you deserve it! You've been so helpful that day and even helped with my piercings and veil during our photoshoot. Everything apart from the weather was perfect! We even managed to have lots of shots outside for sunset etc. "

I'd like to thank Kelly and Phil for their amazing home for our wedding venue, Trev Hill Photography for photos, Jess from beautifulbride.co.nz for myself, Neil from Exectutive Cars and Angela Port for marrying us. Thanks so much Jess for doing my hair and makeup!!

Sharon Selby, Sawyers Bay

Hi Jess, we had an awesome day! Thank you so much for making us look fab, we had so many compliments on our hair and make up x

Lacey White, Dunedin

The girls and I loved our make-up! And it stayed perfect the whole night - I even woke up with my eyelashes perfectly in place haha. Thank you so much Jess!  I absolutely loved my wedding make-up and felt like a superstar all night.  I cannot recommend Jess highly enough, she did an amazing job and it was awesome to have a laugh with her as we got psyched up for the big day!


Jess went above and beyond, picking up the wedding flowers for us as she drove down from Dunedin and then stepping up to do my Sister's make up with no notice as well :)

Charlotte Nuttall, Owaka

Hey yaaaaa !!! 

Thanks again for the hair and makeup! What a wedding !! It was truly magical and I loved what you did !! Thanks so much for going above and beyond !

Kimberley Jones, Company Bay

Jess has the best team! They care so much and go above and beyond and always do such a good job!

Allison Hurley, Sally's Bridal Boutique Dunedin

It’s been a crazy few months and I hope you are well and your business is surviving. Man what a mission that wedding day was. But here we are, married, into our 3rd month, really can’t believe that.

Thank you for being wonderful that morning. On reflection there was a lot of stress with not knowing what would happen and not being in my element at all. Then there was the rain and the last minute wet weather plan. But its done now, which is an accomplishment in itself. I was never going to be the girl who enjoyed the experience although I really tried. We finally have our photos from our wonderful photographer, delayed due to COVID and looking at those you wouldn’t know the drama that unfolded alongside our day. (Kyla's day managed to still go ahead just before NZ's Covid-19 lockdown.)

Kyla Bennett, Dunedin

Thanks again for getting us all organised, your calm and friendly approach was just what we needed and for the handy tip for Fern's outfit!!  


I'm hoping you haven't been too badly affected by the lockdown etc.  I'm really glad we are back to Level 1 now.  I remember you saying you did nails, I'd love to book in sometime to get mine done.

Liz Lightbourne, Dunedin

The day before my wedding I met a beautiful talented woman - her name is

Jessica Campbell

the owner of Beautiful Bride, based in Dunedin! Jess travelled to Queenstown the day before my wedding to give me the best tan ive ever had, and then come back and done my hair and makeup on my wedding day. That day i made a new friend!! For someone who isn't comfortable wearing makeup, jess just made me feel so comfortable and at ease!! For anyone looking for someone who is talented at what they do, and genuinely cares, message Jess, on Facebook thats all i did.

Thanks for my pressie Jess x
