Destination Weddings

Jenna McDonnell is available for hair and make up services worldwide. Wedding prices remain the same for all destination bookings - the price for bridal hair and make up is simply replaced by the cost of Jenna’s travel and accommodation, so the total cost is usually no more expensive than if the wedding was in the UK.

Discounted package deals are also available for wedding guests requiring services on the day - as a Guinness World Record Holder for fastest hair stylist, Jenna can provide multiple hair up dos for your big day!  Other services are also available during the trip if needed, including hair and make up for pre-wedding photos, or evenings out.

Please contact us for more information or call into the salon to pick up our new Destinations Weddings flyer.

Jenna did my hair and make-up for me and my daughter on my wedding day in May 2021, she also did hair for our mums and my friend......we all looked amazing! She was such a pleasure to have around when we were all getting ready, so cheerful and helpful, even helped me get in my wedding dress. 

She is a brilliant make-up artist, so talented. We all received so many lovely comments from our family and friends. Jenna was so accommodating with all our date changes through covid, when we finally had a date she moved things around to ensure she could be there. I would highly recommend her to all brides out there! Thank you Jenna, you made my day so special and made us look amazing xx

Had Jenna do my hair for my wedding on the 18th September 2021 she also did my 3 bridesmaids hair and 3 flower girls hair, she did an amazing job on all of us and had many compliments off my wedding guests. Jenna was amazing with my 1 flower girl who is autistic and wont normally let any one touch her hair, jenna was amazing with her and achieved the bow hairstyle i choose to match the other 2 flower girls. Thank you again Jenna you are so talented and such a lovely bubbly person, so glad you was part of my special day.

We had the absolute pleasure of having Jenna do hair and make up for our wedding day. Not only is Jenna one of the loveliest people that you will come across but she is unbelievably talented.

The morning of the wedding she made us all feel at ease and it was a pleasure to have her there. I felt like a million dollars and all of the bridesmaids (and mum) commented on how happy they were with their hair and make-up. 

Do not hesitate to book her for your wedding as I honestly don't think you would find anyone who even comes close! Thank you again xx

She is AMAZING!!

I booked her for my wedding (28.07.21) she’s so accommodating as I had to rearrange with her twice due to COVID/postponed wedding (was no trouble)

She started from 5AM to make myself & 5 of my wedding party to be all dolled up & looking so glamorous in our hair & make up! 

We looked STUNNING 

Jenna thank you so much for making me look & feel amazing on my wedding day x

I throughly recommend Jenna, she did my hair and makeup yesterday. Everything was perfect, so comfortable and affordable. I felt absolutely beautiful and got so many compliments. The makeup lasted from 9.00am to 3am the next morning! With wearing masks I was worried it would come off but still perfect. Thank you so much Jenna, you’re throughly fantastic

And couldn’t recommend anybody else but you! X

Jenna was the wonderful hair and makeup artist for my sisters wedding in May. 

She did an outstanding job on the bride, two mothers, 5 bridesmaids and two flower girls hair and makeup. Hannah her assistant was superb too, though to be honest, you know you will get nothing than a superb, wonderful outstanding job when you book Jenna and her team! 

Very talented lady, absolutely amazing person to be around, so friendly and calming on what is an extremely exciting and nervous time. 

Thank you again for everything!

- Rhianne Nicholls

Im not sure where to start - Jenna and her team were fantastic throughout the whole experience. I cannot thank Jenna enough for making me feel that extra bit special on my wedding day. She was amazing in every sense from her professionalism and friendliness to the amazing job she did with my hair and make up, as well as my bridesmaids and flower girls, I really did feel special and beautiful. She went that extra mile to make sure my day started off well and was a fantastic asset to my day. Thank you Jenna

I booked Jenna for our wedding in Italy about 18 months ago, luckily as a midweek wedding she was able to fit me in! I had never met her previously, and was going on Jenna's reputation and recommendation from a friend, I didn't even book in a trial I was that confident, and I wasn't wrong

Jenna McDonnell You are truly the kindest, most generous, loveliest person I have ever had the pleasure of meeting! I feel like I've known you years, you made the whole morning a dream, gave us advice and tips and literally helped me with all sorts 

You deserve the world and more. Thank you so so much xx
