I went for the facial deal, it was excellent, therapist Saher was very experienced and friendly, she knew her business well, she was slightly late for the appointment but certainly made up for it with a free facial mask. I did feel relaxed and enjoyed the pampering very much. She gave advise on my skincare. I will definately go back and will tell my friends about them. I left with my skin feeling smooth and refreshed.

Venue just branched out to do beauty treatments. Its main business is photography. There was confusion on who should be doing the facial, waited half hour for them to organise themselves. Despite all that, facial was good. They just need to get organised.

Very good treatment as well as very relaxing with immediate remarkable results.
Although the study is tucked away , this is not a problem because the directions are very clear and it is only a short walk from the station. The therapist is friendly and experienced. Highly recommeded.

I was very happy with the treatment I received with you today. The premises were somewhat basic in as much as having to travel to another building to use the toilet. However, you had done your best to create a pleasant atmosphere for customers and the friendliness of the staff compensated for this.

I must confess the customer service at Bliss Studios was unimaginable. It was a first class experience at an economy cost.

My pregnant wife and I went in for a photo-shoot and the transformation was magical. The photo-shoot package was bespoke to our needs; we wanted a photo-shoot that will tell a story that will last for a life-time, one that we can tell to our child in future and Bliss Studios made that happen.

One more thing that will probably interest you is that the price was affordable and they had different offers to meet your pocket so there will be no such thing as it is very expensive.

I recommend this to you all just because I enjoyed my time at the studio, loved the pictures, appreciated the warm reception and customer service and most importantly liked the fact that I didn't have to break the bank to pay for my photographs/pictures

We had a group makeover, and we had a fantastic day! Our photos came out beautiful and staff were very friendly. The after sales team were helpful too.

I went for a photoshoot last week at bliss studios. My friend and me thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
The staff were very friendly..and their work from makeup to sets to choosing photos were brilliant. Special thanks to one of the girls who made a beautiful elegant style for my scarf as I wear a hijab.
My friend and me were equally happy with our shots and are very pleased with our photos.
Thank you everyone.. we had a lovely day and continue with the awesome job!

I was very keen to try out the Indiba treatments and was delighted to see Bliss studio's offering various deals for this type of treatment. I purchased the indiba eye treatment deal 4x £75 and I am currently in the middle of my treatment sessions. Approaching the dreaded age of 30, I was looking at a way to help retain my youth. This treatment has throughly helped reduce the wrinkles I had started to develop and helped plump up my skin. The results were seen in the very first treatment and I was glowing all the way home :). The treatment itself is very relaxing and the therapist Shair has been a delight. Very accomodating, friendly with a personable approach. This is a great contrast to the other salons I have visited who throw in hard sales pitches and place you under pressure to buy more. Overall I am extremely pleased with the treatment and service I have received. I loved it so much that I treated myself to a Indiba face treatment today. I highly recommend this salon and treatment to all.

I attended Bliss with a voucher to indulge in eye wrinkle 'Indiba' treatment, I enjoyed the experience and treatment so much I went on to book a further course of not only eye treatment but stomach also. I was given a fantastic deal by the lovely, lovely Sari (sorry if spelt wrong). I cannot praise Bliss Studio enough I have been there when other customers are having thier photo shoots and they all have had the biggest smile of enjoyment on thier faces. All the staff are soooo friendly and make you feel like they have known you forever. My Big Bonus, I have to say is that having stuggled with a humungous sty on my eye that refused to budge for the past 18 months is finally looking decidedly smaller after 5 treatments. (the reason for trying the treatment in the 1st place having researched sty's and discovering heat is a good treatment for them). Pls pls pls do, yourself a favour, if you are thinking of booking anything with bliss, go ahead, you wont be dissapointed, just ensure you read the terms of your offer.

I quite apprehensively took my twin 8 year old daughters there for a photoshoot as a birthday treat (me hubby and my 2 year old son tagged along), and I was SOOOO glad I did. What a brilliant day. One of my daughters has facial abnormalities hence me being apprehensive, but they made both my daughters look and feel like beautiful princesses. I thought the whole makeover would be for them but the proprietor was very insistent that we have ours done too as it was part of the deal.

We were made to feel very welcome and the hair and make up artists knew exactly what to do, as I am Asian i was concerned that they may not put the right colour tones on but they did a fantastic job, the hair stylist knew exactly how to emphasize on my daughters good side of her face, as did the photographer. My husband was so impressed by the whole thing that even he was motivated to join in!

The photoshoot was fun, our deal included 2 sets of outfit changes and my make up was adjusted accordingly. I did buy some prints, and would definitely go there again. lovely staff too.

Went there after purchasing a deal on Wowcher. I think if everything had a "happy ending" I wouldn't feel so upset, ripped off, disappointed and powerless as I feel now!
I think they got a great Hairdresser and a fantastic Make up artist! These girls are real treasure, they see you, the visualise what works best on you, they do their work well and there are very amiable. Excellent job after your jaw drops when you see yourself in the mirror! The photographer is ok, but she rushes a lot and often the images are with the eyes closed or semi-closed. The lady who provided drinks and forms to fill in was a-do-ra-ble, great hostess. Now let's come to the biggest factor here - the selling of the images. I don;t think that anyone ever sells the picture pack for the prices on their price list - £100 per image or even triple digit for a picture pack!! So they tell you that they will make a discount. What happened with me - I felt completely pressured and hated the fact I was not able to negotiate anything! We sorted the pictures leaving least pretty ones, but I was not able to go through them all again and to pay what I actually could without causing havoc to my finances! When I said that I want to take less pictures then but pay what I can, the lady took it as a private offence, increased the price (sort of pointing a finger at sky technique of choosing a price) and said it's a "deal she normally never does". The conversation was not getting anywhere, so I just paid and left. I think this is their strategy there. To be honest, I was not prepared for such a battle at all on a lovely weekends eve after a relaxed day. BUT a word of advice - don't do it!! when I go through the pictures now, they don't cheer me up at all, cause I also have taken the ones that I didn't want to! I definitely admit my lack of being less harsh and pushy sometimes where I actually have to, but beware to feel like you are in Egyptian market where you really have to negotiate the price! And please wear simple clothes so that no one has a feeling that you're a millionaire!

I had a #woucher 97% discount on #blissstudios photoshoot with 2 photos – except photos were little more than thumbnails – to get normal sized photos you needed to pay £198. None of this was clear with the #woucher deal – I felt ripped off and contacted woucher (twice) no response and this suggests that all their deals are as questionable as this one

We at Bliss Studios are happy to receive any type of feedback from our clients, regardless whether positive or negative. It means that our attention can be drawn to the areas we need to improve on and also hear of our good work and be able to commend our staff. Of course everyone is entitled to their view and able to comment freely. We do encourage this. However on this occasion we feel it necessary to comment and correct the misinformation provided in this particular review.

With any online companies that we deal with, we only ever provide low resolution images. It is in all of our signed contracts to each company and should be noted in the highlights/description of any vouchers purchased. However we later realised that Wowcher did not list this fine detail and of course is having an impact on our company. We have contacted Wowcher directly, notified them of this issue and sought their advice. They are happy for us to continue to provide low resolution images as per our signed contract with them.

If a customer would like their low resolution image upgraded to a high resolution (meaning they can enlarge the image into poster size without pixilation) this can be done at the price of £30.00 per image, totalling £60.00 for the two upgraded high resolution images including additional retouching. When a customer makes an enquiry about the deal with the images, we confirm they are low resolution and of course can be upgraded if needed. If the customer has any issues with regards to the low resolution, we of course direct them to Wowcher. We also make clear that we apply a no obligation purchase policy to our customers.

We feel very disappointed with this review as upon speaking with our Bookings Manager, she confirms that this was explained to this client at the time of booking and according to his signed order form, his two low resolution images were upgraded to high resolution for no more than £60.

We of course understand his frustration with Wowcher and hope he now has a better understanding of our part in the circumstances, and why we felt it important to comment

Came in recently for a photoshoot and wishing I had purchased a double makeover so that my boyfriend could come. After speeking with the lady on the phone, she allowed me to bring him along for free i just had to place a refundable deposit for both of us.

The staff were very helpful and warm welcoming. We had an amazing day, it was funny watching him sit in the make up chair as the makeup artist brushed his face with foundation and his face was a picture as he felt a bit silly. We enjoyed the shoot and the pictures came out amazingingly. There was a bit of a wait to view the images as the clients before were taking while so we just sat stuffing our faces with the snacks Iaid out on the table. I took my free images but was sad to leave my other images but could not afford to buy as i am a student so had to request my refund of our deposit.

I would come back for another shoot and woudl recommennnd

Me and my best friend had a lovely photoshoot session in Bliss studio last week, it was a birthday treat from my friend. We had an amazing time there! Although we have done this sort of photoshoot session before in some other studios, but we were still feeling a bit "camera shy" on the actual day, as I don't think we are the best poser in front of camera..Lol.... Fortunately the team was so friendly and professional, it really makes a big difference compare to our last few experiences in other studios, as we felt that the whole session was so much more relaxing compare to the ones that we had before. We loved our make up and hair... (We even went out with it on that night for my birthday dinner after the photoshoot and it last the whole night! ). We brought many outfits on the day, as we thought it's better to have more choices rather then not enough. The photographer guides us throughout the session for posing... it was great fun! :)
We were waiting for a bit to view and photos, but I must say it was worth the wait as the photos were stunning!!
The over experience was just amazing! And I would definitely recommend the Studio to anyone! ;)

I came recently for a photoshoot after purchasing a Living Social discount day for myself and was a bit sceptical as receiving such a discount for a day like this how gd it would be but needed some photos. Was pretty impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of the lady who booked me in. She was extremely helpful and made me feel totally at ease explaining things in very much detail.

On that day of the shoot , i was really welcomed warmly by all the staff and Marhaa was extremly kind and helpful. I was a little nervous as the studio was quiet busy and i am quite shy but the staff were very warm and it was a good atmosphere. The photographer a very loud wild woman who made me laugh alot and as she was showing me how to pose, not always a comfortable position and some alittle strange but went with it. i was quite specific of what I needed for my website and she was good at guiding me through that and then we had a few fun personal ones after that which was required by the studio from some reason. My makeup and hair was really nice.

The viewing lady Aimiee was lovely and although the packages were alittle out of my budget she still gave me a really good deal along . I think with the images you have to just be honest and real what you can and cant afford as they are quite pricey but quite normal for these sorts of place i imagine after speaking with my pal's daughter.

I think the thing that really stood out for me is the aftercare service i received from them. After i went home and had a good look at the images i realised that i needed a little extra retouching on a couple of bits. I called them to see if this could be done and how much they would charge, how quickly it could be done. I spoke to Angelina and she was totally fine about this, told me to send details of what needed doing on each picture and she would sort this out free of charge. She contacted me to let me know she had passed on my images to the retoucher, contacted me again to let me know she had them back and to clarify my address and then again a few days later to make sure i had received them. I know this is what should be done but most companies these days dont bother with the after care once they got their money and thats why i feel it was necessary to mention it.

For the price it was superb and i would recommend.

The photoshoot was very rushed. I had been to 2 studios before hand, and found that their photographers were way more friendly, they allowed me to add a little of my personality to my poses, whilst bliss studios gave exact instructions which just made the photoshoot boring, and more like I was working rather than there for pleasure. To make matters worse the photos were horrible.

I wore a corset in one of my photos, and the back was not done up, yet the photographer still took the pictures, despite seeing that my corset was not done up, so the pictures were even worse because of that.

The viewing was rushed, and the prices were crazy and not worth the money. I would be happy paying the price at the other studios I went to simply because they were more friendly and seemed like they knew what they were doing, and the pictures were so much better.

It was a bad day, I wasnt 100% happy with my make up, that was rushed too. All I can say is never go there at the end of the day when the staff are so eagar to go home. MAybe they treat those with vouchers differently to those paying full price. Also read the FULL terms and onditions. I was fortunate to negotiate a deal. I would never reccomend anyone to go there, there are much better studios with much better prices which take much better pictures (from my personal experience).

I must say the memebers of staff wrere great at the beginning, they were friendly until I had a misunderstanding with my voucher, then they seemed to want to go home all of a sudden.

I went for a photo shoot session with my friend this month after buying a voucher from groupon which paid for the makeover but not for the photos. The experience was nice and over all me and my friends enjoyed it. The staff that did the makeover were really friendly and nice. I was really pleased with my makeup but not so pleased with the haircut. I enjoyed the friendly and easy going atmosphere, also the studio is quite nice.

There are some things I didn't like. First of all the photographer guides you on the poses, which is good but at the end you end up looking a bit uncomfortable and unnatural in some of the photos. I would have expected to have a bit of guiding but also be allowed to express myself in front of the camera and show a bit of my personality. But this can not be done because they can't take 100 photos of you as it will be hard to decide at the end which ones you like. Over she took 25 photos of me and 25 of my friends. Half of them where not very good.

Also during the same time of our session there were other 6 ppl having their photos taken on the same day. This wouldn't have been a problem if we were given more attention and more time to take good photos which I didn't feel we had. We had to rush with the photo shoot and didn't have time to fully relax in front of the camera.

The big surprise came at the end when we were shown the prices for the photos. It did feel like a rip off. There is a reason why they don't show prices on their website for the full package or for the actual photos which other companies do.

Overall the experience was nice and enjoyable but if you decide to go to this studio for a photo shoot make sure you call them before and negotiate a good price for the photos and don't agree with the exorbitant prices they will ask for.
