TESTIMONIALS

ABOUT


Just some of the kind words submitted to The Wedding Industry Awards by former clients.


“Harriet was absolutely wonderful and she was able to interpret exactly what I wanted before I really knew what I wanted myself! I would highly recommend her to any bride!!” 

 
“I spent an unbelievable amount of time looking for a headpiece, until I found Harriet- we spoke briefly on the phone; I explained my dress to her; and she understood immediately the ethos, style, and quality I was looking for. I was astounded. She was flexible, incredibly efficient, and warm.” 


“Harriet’s ideas and suggestions were far better than my own and she knew instinctively why the pieces I was originally looking at would not suit me and picked up a piece that I would never have looked at. But then when I tried it on - ’Bingo’ - that was the one! Harriet knew this immediately - fantastic!” 


“Harriet totally understood what I wanted and adapted her existing design. She explained clearly what she could and couldn’t do and got on with making my bespoke headband. I sell tiaras myself as part of my own wedding business but there really wasn’t anything available that came close to the design I wanted as the theme of the wedding was Greek island glam!” 


“We visited her and the questions she asks are perfect - helping to make us (me and my mum) feel at ease. Her knowledge and artistic flair is brilliance. And she is instinctive – she picked up on what I would / wouldn’t like.” 


“I am an older bride and was concerned regarding the image that I was trying to create. It did not help that I lived some distance away and all communication was by email or telephone - in spite of this Harriet managed to understand what I wanted and produce a perfect fascinator. A fantastic result.” 


“I am a very particular person, and Harriet knew exactly what I wanted just from emailing back and forth. Being in Canada I was skeptical the fascinator would not be what I wanted when I received it, however it was so much more. I loved it and her work is amazing a wonderful quality.” 


“I got a head piece from by Harriet. It was my favourite part of my wedding outfit. I have alopecia so when I saw the piece I didn’t know if it would match my wedding wig. They sent me a mock up hair piece so I could try it before I got it. She made it however I wanted it and changed it to fit my style. She was excellent and the beautiful piece I got for my wedding I will keep forever. As my hair was the most worrying part of my outfit because of my alopecia it made me so confident on the day.” 


“Harriet made a bespoke Comb that matched my dress to perfection! From only a photo of the belt on my dress the results were outstanding. The bridal shop where I bought my dress couldn’t believe the match and my hair dresser was so pleased with the quality, spent hours perfecting the design of my hair to compliment. The special part was the little 3min video Harriet sent to me showing how she had achieved it! This had me in tears before it arrived!! Definitely a piece to hand down the family.” 


“I would highly recommend her work as not only is she talented she is also a wonderful and kind person who helps all of us nervous brides.” 


“I was slightly nervous that my befuddled description of what I wanted would make no sense, but when the headband came it was exactly as I'd envisaged and I loved it! I received many compliments too!” 


“The comb was amazing - I loved the vintage pearls. Harriet delivered it really quickly even though I was really late! She dealt really well with the fact that I was emailing her from Brazil, where I live and gave me complete confidence in her. The box was beautiful and it was a pleasure to receive” 


“Harriet was a pleasure to work with from the beginning, her breadth of experience and knowledge was invaluable. She was understanding of my requirements and was able to help direct me in achieving my vision; on what I regarded as one of the most important days of my life. The quality was fantastic and looked stunning in our wedding pictures.  She made my wedding experience easy unlike some of my other supplies I had to deal with during the build up to the big day. A true professional.” 


“Harriet is the most wonderful lady and after 5 minutes of meeting her i new I wanted to work with her for a beautiful head piece for my wedding day . She understood everything I wanted and gave me her undivided attention, I was also so happy that Harriet even took the time to remake the headpiece I wanted but in my colours ( ivory) . The range of headpieces and jewellery available to choose from was breathtaking and I was in my own little world. Amazing lady and very professional .” 


“Such beautiful bespoke pieces for an amazing price. Such a thorough and understanding designer too... Totally grasped what I was after and bought it to life!” 


“The head piece that Harriet made for my wedding day was undoubtedly my favourite item I purchased for my wedding day. It was more than I could have possibly imagined. When I described the design I was so very vague but somehow she managed to capture exactly what I wanted- extravagant and glamourous! Throughout the process Harriet was extremely professional and an absolute delight to do business with.” 


“After trying on several headpieces with Harriet, and looking at pics of my dress, Harriet made me a gorgeous bespoke piece. However, only a few days before the wedding I had nerves about my hair and so decided to cut it all off! I called Harriet in a flap and went round straight away for a consultation. She was AMAZING! I came away with a different and gorgeous piece. She also made a bespoke hatinator for my usually reserved mum - it was flamboyant and fabulous! Her knowledge and advice is spot on” 


“Harriett is outstanding at what she does, her creations second to none! She made me feel truly special. I have also recommended Harriet to many friends who have also been amazed not just by her stunning creations but by her loving character to welcome into her creative zone to understand each individuals needs!! I will recommend to every one I no as they will not be disappointed xx” 


“I decided to get my dress made and a friend recommended Harriet to create the embellishments for it. Harriet was more than happy to help, she provided ideas and completely understood my requirements. I’ll highly recommend her moving forward, Harriet made the whole process far easier for me and each item is stunning. Altogether it made my dress and me look/feel gorgeous.” 


“Harriet was so knowledgeable and down-to-earth friendly that she made me feel at ease and she's inspires confidence - she really knows what will look perfect on you ....” 


“Harriet came highly recommended and after a consultation I was confident she would do a fantastic job.” 


“I used Harriet as she came under a great recommendation and I had seen some of her previous work from a friends wedding. Also when I contacted her she was pleasant and friendly. From meeting her once I knew I could work with her, from her being so approachable and helpful. Also she had vision, an eye for her products allowing her to give good advice.” 


“A friend recommended Harriet after they had used her for their wedding. Seeing what Harriet created for my friend meant my decision was already made.” 


“I had every faith after discussing my needs with Harriet that she would make sure my veil was perfect!” 


“She was lovely and very helpful (I wasn’t a hundred percent sure what I wanted at first but she kept suggesting and showing me options until we figure it out between us) and I love that I have something completely unique to keep forever. The headband really is just beautiful, she’s an artist!”

 
“After searching in vain for a suitable headpiece I found exactly what I was looking for on Harriet’s website. The service was very efficient and professional whilst still remaining personal. The workmanship is excellent and of very high quality.” 


“After meeting her I know she understands what customers are looking for and she gives excellent advice on shapes to suits outfits and faces. I’m booking a head piece for my friends wedding already!” 


“As she listened to all our ideas and showed us examples of how she cud make them come to life, stunning work. Harriett is so lovely and made us feel very important but still relaxed, and like I was the most important bride she had seen. Just a really brill experience from start to finish with a beautiful headdress to complete my bridal look.” 


“High quality bird cage veils, bespoke, complete value for money, timely service. My hair and makeup wedding artist said my bird cage veil was the best she had ever seen and was so stylish. Harriet is a very talented lady.” 


“By Harriet is a talented and creative head piece designer that ensures the client is 100% satisfied. I could not find hair pieces anywhere for myself or my bridesmaids but by Harriet created exactly what I needed and understood me completely thanks to such successful and thorough communication.” 


“Harriet was very helpful in realising what I wanted which was very specific. The finished head piece was brilliant, well made and looked superb.” 


“Harriet was amazing. She had many options and gave wonderful advice. Her head pieces are beautiful and she delivered them in a timely manner. I could not have been happier. I would use her again and again for special events in the future.” 


“Harriet interpreted my unique and admittedly highly unusual request for a fascinator and did amazing work.” 


“Harriet is amazing! Totally understood what I wanted, she listened and advised to a brilliant standard! Her pieces are unique and individual, and made me feel fabulous and special on my wedding day. She's a star!!” 


“By Harriet is a fabulous bespoke business! Harriet's creative talent and attention to detail is breathtaking. The quality of her designs are excellent and tailored individually, supported by her very personal service. My headpiece is stunning, I have recommended her to everyone I know” 
“By Harriet provided a fantastic service, from meeting Harriet, to discussing ideas and coming up with an original hair piece that would match my dress, right through to receiving the combs which were absolutely beautiful and unique.” 


“Harriet was great to work with. She totally understood what I wanted and connected with me personally ensuring that everything I liked was considered. She was very relaxed and professional but communicated with me as if we had known each other for years. It was a real delight to work with Harriet”


 “Harriet was absolutely charming when I spoke to her. I wanted something that wasn't on her website and she understood exactly what I was after. The product was attractively packaged and was delivered incredibly quickly. I will definitely use Harriet again and have recommended her to my friends.” 


“By Harriet supplied the perfect fascinator totally understanding & interpreting my brief & delivered it within a very short period of time. Could not have asked for a more approachable, professional company to work with.” 


“By Harriet supplies a truly, bespoke service that is completely client-centred. She takes the time to gain a full understanding of just what it is you desire for your wedding. The work she then puts into each hand-crafted piece is outstanding and exceptionally good value too!” 


“Harriet has a beautiful and wide range of pieces and accessories for her clients. She is also very attentive and is great at listening and visualizing the look you are trying to create. Great workmanship on all her things and all unique in their own right! Great work Harriet!” 


“We had all sorts of ideas for our wedding, but primarily we wanted a great day that reflected who we are. Part and parcel of this was thinking about the details and looking for quality and personality rather than simply throwing money in every direction. For my outfit, I’d found the perfect dress – one of the main indulgencies – and was determined to finish off my look for the big day with a unique head piece that had character and reflected my personality. I already knew that by Harriet offered excellent quality and, when combined with the evident professionalism, I didn’t need to hesitate before I set about speaking to her to finalise the details. By Harriet had a great portfolio of happy brides so I was comfortable that as soon as the decision was made I could relax and know things were being taken care of. The final piece was stunning and captured my vision perfectly; I loved wearing it and didn’t want to take it off at the end of the day. Harriet even managed to keep my mother happy with her fascinator and there can be no greater endorsement to a bride’s big day!”

 
“Her products and vision are current and they offer a wide range of services and inspired confidence when purchasing internationally.” 


“I felt I trusted by Harriet 100% with creating my head pieces due to the great communication shared. I could not get my head pieces in Ireland anywhere and By Harriet made everything so simple even being so far away from me. By Harriet has a great understanding of the client and is very thorough in the pre-production stage, making it all the more enticing to book with her. I trusted that By Harriet understood what I wanted and was so excited to have had something created that no one else had. That made my wedding experience all the more special and my outfit all the more important. I now have an heirloom that I can pass to my daughter and so on and share with them the experience I had in having such a beautiful piece created especially for me.” 


“Harriet paid a lot of attention to detail and even though extremely busy took time to listen to my wishes and advise accordingly. I never thought I would find the right hairpiece until I saw Harriet's stand at the National Wedding Show - she has some beautiful pieces and she made me feel comfortable and at ease. I was really happy with my hairpiece, which looked fantastic with my dress.. just as Harriet advised. She does know her stuff!” 


“I found her via her web-site and saw that the pictures in her gallery included head dresses along the lines of the idea that I had, on emailing her she asked to be sent a swatch of the fabric, which was a golden green and quite difficult to match, and a drawing of my dress. From there she was most enthusiastic, and I felt very confident that she would provide what I wanted, which she more than did. My hairdresser was also very impressed and has already recommended her to another client who has now used Harriet as well. I would recommend her any time.” 


“I was recommend 'By Harriet' by a colleague who enthused over her products, guidance, support and customer service throughout her wedding preparations. The range on her website was fabulous and very competitively priced.”
