Firstly I would just like to say thank you so much for what was one of the most amazing and exhilarating experiences in my life! I had so much fun. This was a treat I gave to myself for loosing sooo much weight the past year and these photos just prove how far I have come on my journey. The day was amazing from start to finish. Aoife and Lisa were fabulous and so friendly welcoming and chatty which made me ease into it so much more. Receiving these pictures was the highlight of my week and I'm finding it so hard to choose, I keep looking at them and seeing a beautiful woman staring back I didn't think I could look that hot! Thank you so much again for capturing beautiful images I will have for the rest of my life. I will be recommending you to everyone!

Hi, Edel This whole experience has made me feel so out of this world wonderful that choosing the best photos has been a really tough decision. I`ve been staring at myself for over a week now, and have fallen in love with the girl looking back at me from the pictures. I cannot thank you, Ladies, enough. My hair, make up and the composition of the photos are just superb.

- Mary

Can I just say that the experience was amazing. Not once did I feel nervous or coy. I keep looking at the photos and I am in love with what I see. I can't wait to see my husband's reaction on Christmas morning. I treasure my wedding photos and the photos from the births of my children and I can honestly say these beautiful tasteful photos will now sit along side those treasured photos.

Edel is the best photographer ever! She is also one of most genuine and lovliest people you'll meet. A real lady. She was so welcoming, warm and lovely on my photo shoot- you couldnt meet nicer. She is a perfectionist ( ina good way) and shows you the pics along the wy making you feel so at easte. Everything is spotless and relaxed and it was a pleasant experience. Emma's makeup was amazing and needs no guidance on what suits you for that boudoir look. Thank you Edel so much for making this so special...I'll be recommending you to loads of women ...Hugs xxx

Was made feel like an absolute goddess! Felt sick with nerves beforehand but from the moment I got there I was made feel comfortable and sexy, the way every woman should! Very professional and calming environment, would love to do it again! Thank you very much to the girls for making me look and feel like a model.

- Sarah

Just a quick email to say thanks so much for today. Going to the studio this morning my heart was racing, as though I was about to sit an exam - I was so nervous. I did the boudoir shoot as a wedding present for my H2B. Looking back (not having seen my finished photos yet), I think that this has also been something more for me also. The whole experience was very liberating, and a real confidence booster. It was a fantastic experience. From the time I set foot into the studio, the hair and make-up (thanks Emma!!) and the photo-shoot, I was put at ease. Edel is amazing and makes you feel so comfortable you'd forget that you're standing in your underwear!!! I would definitely recommend Secret Boudoir, to anyone thinking of doing a boudoir shoot - a fantastic way to create memories!!!

- Laura

I won this Amazing Prize on Facebook! Was thinking about booking one anyway so got a pleasant surprise when i'd realised i'd won! From the moment i walked in i was made feel at ease! the girls are so friendly and professional! I am a very indecisive person so i just let the make-up artist do her thing and what an fabulous job she did!!Edel was very helpful in directing and i felt totally at ease (even though i was in my underware in front of a complete stranger)!lol Really looking forward to seeing his reaction as it's a surprise for our wedding morning!So if anyone hasn't already done a boudoir photoshoot with Edel i Highly recommend that you do!!!Thank you so so much Edel and Crew!xx

- Ciara

Had an amazing experience , and I thought I was not photogenic , so I proud of my pic that I got a snecky peak at!!! Ladies you are truely fANTASTIC XXX

- rachel shelley



My Secret Boudoir experience was absolutely amazing, I replied to a request looking for a model for hair and make up on FB and before I knew it I was in the car on my way, not one bit prepared to strip off and be photographed.as soon as Edel opened the door I knew I was in good hands, she is so welcoming and friendly I immediately felt at ease. As a mother of 3 I really enjoyed the time to myself, getting my hair and makeup done was a real treat and as for the photo shoot, it was such an experience, i am always very self conscious about my body and was extremely nervous.once I got going I felt at ease and really enjoyed it, I still can not believe it's me in the photographs and I truly believe EVERY women should have this done no matter what your shape, size or age is because It's such an empowering experience and will truly bring out the best of you.T bohank you Edel for giving me my confidence back!

- Samantha O'Reilly

amazing experience. I think I look great in my pics and I rarely take a good pic.I can't wait for my hubby to be to open this gift. This is highly recommended girls.

- Lisa

Just a quick message to say thank you to both Edel and Emma for a great day. Both very talented ladies in their own right. From the moment I arrived, there was an air of calm and my nerves disappeared. What seemed like a a scary undertaking beforehand turned out to be a really enjoyable experience. Cant wait to see the photo's. Keep up the great work :)

- Kim

Hi Edel, Well you are a Miracle worker. I am so happy with my whole day from start to finish. Firstly it was such a gift for me to have won the shoot in one of your FB competitions, but secondly, I kinda panicked , cos after a horrid few monthe I had piled on the pounds to a voluptuous 18/20 and I was like, oh dear, can I do this. From the moment I arrived that afternoon you set me at ease. i was pampered getting my hair and make up done. During this incredibly alien time to myself, I could look through other shoots to get the idea of what type of themes that I wanted to go for. Any nerves I had where gone. Ps body confidence a low 2!!! Then into the room where I could choose from a number of outfits. I felt so liberated and womanly throughout. I even got a sneak peak at some of the shots. You made me feel very relaxed throughout and everything was so professionally laid out. I will definitley do another shoot in time. I was buzzing for weeks afterwards. Thanks you so much, this is not to be missed girls, no matter what your size or shape. Annie, Drogheda. May 2013.xxx

- Annie Powderly

I would like to say a big Thank You to Edel. From the moment I arrived at the studio, I was pampered, hair and make - up was fantastic. Then into Edel to model a few outfits. I never felt as sexy and Edel made me feel so comfortable on the day. I will never forget the words "chin up, eyes down" Thank you Edel for making this mummy feel and look like a "Yummy Mummy"

- Wendy

Hi Edel, just wanted to say a big thank you for an AMAZING Secret Boudoir Experience. I've always been very body conscious but after seeing the end results of my photo shoot I feel alot more comfortable in my body. The photo's were a present for my partner and he was so shocked, he couldn't believe I had the photo's done. But he is one VERY happy man. Congratulations on the Awards. You deserve it. The very best of Luck in the Future. And ladies, anyone indecisive about the shoot I've only one thing to say.. "DO IT" you will not regret it.xx

- Sarahjane

Just a quick note to say a very big thank you to you both. It was a super day and cant wait to see the finished photos Edel you are such a lovely caming lady my nerves went away with in seconds of meeting you .

- orla O sullivan

What an Absolutely wonderful time I had on Saturday getting pampered and getting my pictures taken... Definitely the best prize iv ever won, thanks to Sarah for doin my hair and make up, and Edel for being a wonderful photographer( your award was well deserved) you made the whole experience very calm from the moment I walked through the door, not a nerve in me at all.

I took a picture of my makeover(profile pic) I've even been dubbed the next Elizabeth Taylor, can't wait to see my gallery!!!! Thanks a million again Edel!!! Xx

- Caroline

All i can say to those who are considering it...

- Gelnda

I had a brilliant experience at Secret Boudior. I felt very relaxed thanks to Edel and her Make Up Artist. They were very friendly and good listeners. I would highly recommend getting your photographs done at Secret Boudior. I can't wait to get more photographs done at the studio as mine turned out fantastic. Edel made me smile, she was so professional and had excellent ideas for posing to create perfect pictures. She was every helpful. She had a variety of backdrops which made very picture different. The feedback was amazing when I showed my friends the results I felt so confident and attractive. I felt so special on the day. I was so surprised at how good I looked thanks to Edel expert skills.

- suzi murphy

Sensuality and sexuality are inherent traits of femininity... Sometimes within the humdrum life of being a working mom we forget this. Secret Boudoir is a fantastic way to rediscover the Goddess within yourself. You are greeted with the warmest of welcomes to put you at your ease and to dispel any trace of nervousness you might be experiencing. You are then submerged in the luxuriousness of your make-over. Their wonderful make-up artist carefully consults with you for the optimum look which you want to achieve, taking her time to create a wonderful, thoroughly relaxing experience for you. Only when she is satisfied that you look a million dollars, does she release you into the professional hands of Edel for your photoshoot. At all times, Edel's wonderful presence helps you to succumb to the sensual experience of your shoot and you certainly loose yourself completely in the experience. I want to thank Edel and her staff for the most wonderful experience and for my beautiful photographs.... It certainly was an experience like one I have never experienced before... But one which I certainly will again.

- Alicia Gayson

Hi just wanna say thanks to ye for yesterday....ye made me feel comfy and me nerves calmed a bit...dyn to see the pics...xxx

- Bernadette MulvihillFarrell

My wife and I love the family portrait shots taken by Edel. We had a great afternoon in front of the lens and the photos are a unique memento of our first few months with our baby. The resulting photos are relaxed and fun and a testament to Edels talent, professionalism and ability to make all ages groups feel at ease in front of the camera.

- Niall

The pictures looked amazing- I could not believe it was me in them, I was on cloud nine! I would advise all girls to do this kind of thing to boost their confidence. I felt like a million dollars, the pictures are lovely to look back on and think 'wow! i can do that?'

- Maeve

When I received the finished photographs I was delighted with the result. There was loads of variety of looks and shots. As a full time student and mother to a 16-month-old, I inevitably spend my time in jeans or tracksuits covered in baby food. The photo shoot at Secret Boudoir was a really nice way to regain a sense of my own femininity and my own identity as a young woman, rather than a mum/fiancée/student etc. It was a wonderful way to do something for myself and give my confidence a boost, as well as a great gift for my husband-to-be.

- Leonie

We had a Boudoir Baby photoshoot with Edel in her studio last week and wanted to comment on how fabulous the whole thing was. The mere thought of posing for the camera six months after having a baby was a little daunting to say the least but as soon as we set foot into The Secret Boudoir studio all fears were dissipated. I had a very relaxing hair and makeup session, whilst Edel chatted to us about the type of photos we would like and made us feel completely at ease. She was relaxed and professional thoughout the session and our six month old loved the experience of being centre of attention. Edel captured some beautiful shots and whilst they are lovely to look at now, I know they will be treasured even more in the years to come. A definite recommends for anyone who would like those first precious months captured in a fun, beautiful and playful manner.

- Jenny

Edel, thank you so much for an amazing experience. Still couldn’t believe it when my other half won it through facebook for me. Was so nervous at first but as soon as I came was made to feel great. Both Emma and yourself were so nice and made me feel at ease. Getting my hair & make-up done was FAB. I looked subtlety different but still me. To me I actually looked & felt sexy and confident. Never thought I’d see the day where I was photographed in my undies and semi-nude. It’s something that every woman should do. I know I will be doing it again as I felt extremely comfortable. As for the pictures, WOW is the only word I have. They are so amazing. Still can’t believe it’s me in them. Thank you so much Edel & Emma, you made me feel beyond amazing. Still smiling about the whole thing!

- Kate Murphy

Hi Edel, thank you Soooo much for such an amazing experience .. and the opportunity to feel so feminine and girly. I am advocating your service to all and sundry, as I believe every woman should treat themselves to this liberating and self empowering treatment! You made me feel comfortable and confident enough to be what every woman wants to be(classy,sexy and confident) but my lack self belief in having the ability to express/expose this side of being a woman,(Irish mentality has a lot to answer for)!! Shima, your skills as a beautician are magical (certainly on me anyway:-) Thank you! Edel, WoW!! your ability to empower/encourage people's self confidence is phenomenal, and done so subtlety and objectively, you should consider a side service of counselling in self belief:-) Your photography skills are artistic and portray your astounding ability to view/mould images of people that their not even aware is possible..I'm so looking forward to seeing the photo's and magic you've worked on me, truly appreciate.. THANK YOU! Sincerely grateful, Maureen

- Maureen

Ok, so after 3 attempts of writing this and failing every time, I may try keep this short. Ok is frumpy mummy to yummy mummy in a few hours possible? ABSOLUTELY :)) tomboy all my life, only ever wore make up once before in my life, I didn't think it was possible to make me look any different, well how wrong was I, when I got my mail to choose my photos I could have easily been flicking through a magazine of models, not a tomboy in sight and it all looked so natural. Thank you shima and Edel, ye did an amazing job. I won this shoot through a facebook compitition and never thought it would be "my thing". But now, I would strongly recommend every lady and gent to get a secret boudoir make over at least once in their life. It was an amazing experience and i can't believe how comfortable I was to stand in a room semi naked and not care, Edel you worked wonders and I can't express in words how overwhelmed I was when I received my pictures. Thank you so much for a fabulous day. Xxx

- Tracy Cullen

Fantastic experience, Edel makes you comfortable and is really investing herself in the project from gathering the props to working with your idea. Emma worked on the body painting, i really admired her artistic talent as well as the charismatic person. Thank you so much for this special " me" time. Anne

- Anne

I would like to leave some comments about Edel`s work because it really made me so happy! Got the photoshoot for free on one of her Facebook competitions. From minute 1 to when I left I felt so comfortable, after being anxious about the whole thing. I did not need to say a word about what I wanted, and both Edel and Shima (makeup artist) knew exactly how to read my personality when doing my make up and while taking the pictures. I LOVED the whole experience and feel like a million dollars now. Every woman should have the right to feel so good and beautiful at some stage in her life. Recommended it to all my friends and they simply LOVED the pictures. Thanks Edel for such a pleasant experience which I will keep forever.

- Mariana

Hi Edel, Just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you again for all your work on my boudoir shoot. I had a great time doing it you made me feel so at ease and the results were amazing! Every girl should do this at least once what a confidence boost! I gave my new hubby the big print as a wedding present and he was so chuffed! Then I brought the little black book on honeymoon with me and gave that to him on his birthday while we were away - he literally thought all his Christmases had come at once!! It was brilliant. I will definitely be recommending you to all my girlfriends as a must do experience.

- Niamh

Just a quick message to say a huge Thank you to both Edel and Shima for the most fantastic day. Enjoyed it so much and the experience boosts your confidence...certainly nothing to be worried about. Edel and Shima - thank you again for such a wonderful day....the hair and make up were amazing...didn't want to wash it off and am looking forward to seeing the photos (yikes!! ha). Great day, LOVED IT XXX

- Linda

Was absolutely delighted with the results, felt really comfortable and relaxed, thought the props were fantastic! As Emi stated was a pleasure working with you :) Best of luck in the future, I am sure this will be great x

- Jenny

I had so much fun working with you Edel, really happy with the pics! your studio and costumes were fab! you made everything so easy and were so lovely! i hope we can work together again soon! Thanks so much, Amy

- Amy Farrar

totally fun experience, really happy with end prouct..one thing practice seuctive/cheeky looks before you're shoot, it's tricky

- trish

I got the Black Book of 20 photos as an anniversary present for my husband a few weeks ago, and he was absolutely deighted with the present!

- Anne

I had such a wonderful experience . and such a confidence boost . what started out as a gift for my partner ended up being a gift for myself . I felt so relaxed during the shoot it-self , and felt really well looked after . the pictures themselves are fantastic I think every woman should consider this !

- Sinead

My experience was great and the photos are fab, I still cant believe that it is me in the photos, I had a brilliant experience and would highly recommend it to anyone:)

- Elaine

Hi Edel Had so much fun working with you and got some really beautiful shots. Thanks so much Bernadette

- Bernadette McLoughlin

Thanks so much, Edel! The entire process was enjoyable, but the photo book is the best part. Having the photos retouched is brilliant. It means women can show off the confidence that age gives while smudging the wear and tear ( ie stretch marks!) children bring! I'll definitely recommend you to my friends.

- Chrissy

Edel took some pictures of me and I was delighted with the result...I never though i could look that good (and sexy)Top marks to 'Secret Boudoir' and Best of Luck in the future!!

- Jacqueline

- Joann

My Wife and I now have a set of photographs that we love. They exceed our expectations. I expect that as time goes by we will treasure them more and more. I could tell from my Wife's "buzz" after the shoot that it was hugely fun to do. That said, what impressed me most of all was the business like and highly professional pre and post-shoot service, the prompt communication and the excellent website. I will not hesitate to recommend this service.

- Tom

My entire experience at Secret Boudoir was so much fun from start to finish. Both Edel and Emma the make up and hair stylist are a dream to work with and so professional! The photos were fabulous and I loved getting dolled up for the morning and trying on all the different outfits. I would thoroughly recommend this experience. The photographs are stunning and I can't believe its me!!!

- Emma Creedon

It was a fabulous experience! The make up and the photoshoot is a great experience. And the photos look so amazing. I can hardly believe its me! I am glad I have these pictures so i can show my children in 20 years!

- Lorraine

I wasn't so sure what to expect when I went to Secret Boudoir. A friend had recommended it. I have to say I was really impressed. I had a FANTASTIC time! Edel is so professional and has a real eye for detail. The experience was amazing from end to end (including the pampering makeover from the makeup artist Shima!). I gave the book I bought as a gift to my new husband and needless to say he was delighted! I would recommend this to everyone, whether you are a bride to be or you just want to treat yourself!

- Sita

I wanted to get my husband a wedding gift that was a bit different, and thought the idea of boudoir shots in a little black book would be something that he would be really suprised by and would always have! I was quite nervous before the photo shoot, but Edel really put me at ease, and after I'd my hair and make-up done I was feeling quite excited about the whole experience. I was really happy with the result and how well the photo's came out. My husband loved it!

- Orna

It was a dream come true to win the compition and i really enjoyed the shoots.It was a pleasure and look forward to returning in the future.Recommend you big time!

- Antoinette

My Secret Boudoir experience was one I will never forget, I wasn't looking my best when I walked into the studio or feeling it as I viewed all the beautiful photo's hanging on the walls. I was half afraid that I was making a big mistake as I am a size 18 and in my early forty's and thought I was expecting too much from it. After my make up was done I could feel my spirits lift as I stared at myself in the mirror. The photo shoot was fun as Edel put me at my ease and the clicking began. When my photo's arrived I couldn't believe how well I looked. I would recommend that every woman should experience this at least once in her life. I hope to experience again.

- Jackie

Having purchased a session as a gift for the two of us, I was unsure how the day would go. However, Edel and her staff could not have been more friendly, helpful and brilliant at putting us at ease. We were consulted at every stage, from the make up, to the outfits, to the poses and even through to the pictures themselves. The make up was done with due care and attention and was perfect for what we wanted. Subtle and not at all over the top. Everything was done to emphasise, not overwhelm. The photo-shoot itself was slow and deliberate and done with care and attention to detail. We both thoroughly enjoyed the entire afternoon and were made to feel very special. So much so that there was our very own "Gok" moments. However, the fun did not stop there. The excitement of waiting to see our gallery, the joy of seeing how wonderful the pictures were and then, after all that, we stopped trying to select photographs, but decided the only thing to do was to take them all. A very special occasion, and one which has been described as 'best present ever'. There can be no higher praise! Thank you to Secret Boudoir, to Edel and to her staff.

- Amanda Dunlop

Edel I want to thank you so much for such an amazing experience. From the moment I arrived and was made up beautifully by Shima to the end of the photo session I felt totally relaxed and really enjoyed myself. I can't believe the ourcome - the photos are amazing. I'm in my late 40's and couldn't believe that I could look so good and, dare I say it, sexy at my age. My partner has a significant birthday coming up this week so we sat together last night going through my gallery of photos. He was blown away - he was supposed to pick just one as a birthday gift but found it impossible so we've chosen 6 in total and even then it was difficult to narrow it down! I would recommend the Secret Boudoir experience to any woman - even if you don't plan to buy the photos for a significant other - just do it for yourself, it will make you feel so good about yourself and so confident. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

- Clare

Thanks for those fab pictures – you worked wonders! When I look at them I feel like a film star!

- Lou

Everyone loves to be pampered and they certainly do it with style at Secret Boudoir. From the professional hair and make-up, to the fabulous photos that result from a most enjoyable and relaxing experience – not to mention the choccies and champagne!!! I turned 50 (half a century old) on the day I had my photo shoot. It was always something I had wanted to do and my significant birthday was my excuse. That Edel could make me look hot is priceless – a real boost and a wonderful keepsake. Thank you for everything

- Brenda

It was trully a pleasure to work with this team of a very gifted photographer and very artistic makeup artist to do the bodypainting shoot . Edel knows exactly how to direct a shoot so that you get the best possible shots and have an amazing experience at the same time, and Emma uses her amazing skills to enhance what is already there. I would definitely recommend them both to anyone. All the best ladies!

- Cha

It was absolutely a pleasure meeting you and working with you, the shoots were very relaxed and fun but at the same time very professional. I love the pictures and I would definitely recommend you to everyone. I like how you have loads of new ideas and how you work together with the model to achieve the best shoots. I must also mention your make-up artist and how good of a job she does. I wish you all the best Emi x

- Emi

Edel I just wanted to thank you for an amazing experience! I still can't believe I did it, it's really something I would never have thought I'd do! You made me feel so at ease and it turned out to be such fun! I gave the book to my husband to be on our wedding morning and he was so blown away that we even had tears! Thanks again, would recommend this to everyone!

- Deirdre

I had a great time on the shoot and the photos are fabulous - I can hardly believe it is me!

- Joanna

He loved the photos !! I think it was the best present I have ever given him - thanks for everything. He was really surprised that I had done this but so impressed !!! Thanks again. I said in the begining that I was doing this for my husband and you mentioned that I should also look upon it as doing it also for myself - you were right I feel really proud of myself and in some strange way feel more confident in myself. Thanks from both of us you!!
