These are true unedited testimonials from our past Brides that have given permission to be posted on the Glam Van website.

Dear Susana, I truly wanted to thank you on a wonderful job you did on myself and my bridal party. I have never looked so beautiful and you just made the morning so fun and relaxed, the girls couldn’t stop taking selfies of themselves..hahaha. Again thank you thank you thank you.

Much appreciated bride, Megan :)))2016

Words cannot express how grateful I am for you and your wonderful team making us all look stunning on my wedding day. Sorry its taken me so long to write you but please send my thanks to Christine as her make up skills are beyond talented and of course your hair artistry is the best I have had. My husband loved my hair and makeup and said he wished I could look like that every day( and he usually hates make up) So, again I thank you GlamVan for being so professional, punctual and for making the whole booking process so easy for me, as you know I was one stressed out bride.

Many warm wishes and great success in your business Susana; Natalie G OCT 16

Hello Susana, I have just got back from my honeymoon which was amazing and I just couldn’t wait to tell you how happy I was with your service for my wedding last month. My mother who was so nervous about getting her hair and make up done was beyond excited with the look you girls created for her. So natural but yet glamorous at the same time, she said she didn’t even look that good at her own wedding lol. Thank you for making the whole experience fun and for keeping me calm all morning. You can really tell you love what you do so please never stop. !!!

Dear Susana and Christine, if i could bottle the morning of my wedding I would as you both did an amazing job on our hair and make up. After getting the run around with another company and being over quoted I finally found you and am very grateful I did as I couldn’t of asked for better hair and make up on me and my maids. My flower girl was so happy all day with her Elsa hair hahaha and thank you for making her feel as special as the rest of us even though she was only 3. GlamVan is truly worth every scent and I can’t wait to be able to have you do my hair and make up for my maids wedding coming up in 2017 which I am a maid for yeeehhhh!!!

See you soon gorgeous

Hi Susana

Just a quick email to say ‘thanks so much’ for your work (and of course, your girls’ work) for our wedding. They were prompt, lovely, and did beautiful work. Thanks so much – you made our day really special.

Very warmly

liz wedding on 17th Oct 15

My big day was 7th March this year 15. The ladies visited my bridal party and me in the Glam Van. The whole experience was amazing. Susana’s Glam Van is relaxing, exciting and everything you could want on the day. We all felt like celebrities! Susana,

the hair for both mums, bridesmaids, flower girl and of course me was A plus. Sue-Ellen on make up is so talented! Check out my pic! Highly recommended, will definitely use the service again.

Dear Susana; Thank you for all your hard work along with your team Christine, Angie and Sue Ellen on our wedding on the weekend. I was so impressed on how you four managed to get 15 women get ready for my wedding. Unbelievable was all I can say!!! Thank you to you and Christine for keeping my anxiety down and for making it such a fun and exciting girly morning. My bridesmaids/ mum/ mother in law/ aunties really enjoyed the work you did. I particularly fell in love with my hair! It was amazing. I am waiting for more photos from the photographer and I only hope theres photos there that does it justice. You did such an amazing job. And Christine with her false eyelashes (I love them!). My make up was beautiful and I received many comments that day about both hair and make up. Honestly, I loved it all.

I highly recommend you (to those reading your page) as you were accommodating to change (thank you so much for fitting in all those people), task-oriented, organised, punctual, a great team-leader and just darn super fun.

Many thanks, Diah

Dear Susana,

I am so happy I found you as my wedding hair & make-up artist! Meeting you in person at my trial just reinforced my gut instinct that you were the one that I would book (it was a blessing in disguise that my initial artist cancelled on me at the last minute!). Words can’t express what a fantastic job you did – I so loved my hair and make-up, exactly what I wanted and I got so many wonderful comments all day! My sister loved her hair style as did my mum. Having you as part of my nearest and dearest as I got ready on my wedding morning, made me feel so at ease and you professionalism and talent is rare to find.

You are so genuine and really listen to your client to create and exceed their expectations! To say I have found a lifelong friend is a bonus! I would have no hesitation in using you again or recommending you to any potential bride or client.

Hi Susana,

I wanted to say a big thank you for the absolutely wonderful job that you and Kathy did for me and my wedding party on December 28th! Thanks to you both, we looked amazing for the big day, and we have pictures to show for that :) I attached a few pictures from the day.

Make-up and the hair stayed on the whole day! Even though it was extreemly windy at our first photo location next to the beach (pic attached), my hair looked absolutely lovely and it didn’t get messy at all!

 Thank you!

Narina Haggar

Many thanks to you and your Makeup artist on the day – you were both very professional, started on time & finished in perfect timing too. Our photographer was impressed, it doesn’t happen often apparently! Mum looked & felt beautiful, you both did a fantastic job on her. The bridesmaids looked stunning, the style complemented their dresses and the makeup was flawless! And mine, of course was everything I wanted even though I changed my mind after every single trial J I’ll let the pictures speak for me…

Thank you so so much!! Hope you’re well,


Hi Susana,

Thank you so much for all the hard work you put in for my wedding. The experience was totally amazing, so relaxing and stress free. We received hundreds of complements on the day for how stunning my hair was as well as how great my sister and mum looked as well. We all had a “theme” going with our hair in curls, but we were also so unique, which is what i loved the most.

Your ideas and suggestions were just spot on and you certainly made the whole experience on the day and also on the trial one i will treasure forever.

Thank you again for everything that you did for me, my sister and mum. We were just blown away by your amazing talent, dedication and passion.

Cheers, Pip

Susana was extremely helpful in co-ordinating the trials all the way to the wedding day. Her team of experts Beth and Christine did an amazing job and ensured the bridesmaids and I looked our best for the special day.

Suzanna and the girls were amazing – from the trials to the day there were no hassles and everyone looked stunning. The Glam Van was also awesome as it kept all the fuss out of the house and really allowed everyone to relax and enjoy the process of getting ready.

Erin G. says: 14 Nov 2014 in Hair and Makeup

Suzana and Sue Ellen are amazing! The make up and hair styles were fantastic! My make up held all day and my hair stayed curled and great all day despite a bit of rain!!! They are the best in the field! The ‘glam van’ is a great added extra!!!

Hair and make-up provided by 2 girls from Glam Van. Friendly, fast, on time and happy to make adjustments. I had a trial first and after giving some feedback got exactly what I wanted. Very happy!

Wow! I can’t say enough about these girls. Absolutely stunning hairstyles and make-up application. Not only are these girls the best in the business, on a personal level they were so friendly and such fun to be around!

I must have received a million compliments about my hairstyle. Maria prepared the perfect updo. It looked amazing, and it lasted all day long, even through a strong wind on the day and a lot of dancing. Thanks Glam Van !
