Lovely, friendly and just what I wanted
Claire did my wedding make up and hair and bridesmaids hair in February and she did a fantastic job 😍 I never usually wear make up but she made me look very natural. I received such wonderful compliments all day and from my evening guests , the only complaint was from my husband who had to take all the hair grips out at the end of the night 😂 I would recommend Claire without any hesitation.

Lovely to have meet and worked with for our specia
I live in Australia and got married in the Uk last Christmas Claire was great. She stayed in touch with me while I was in Australia and then when getting to the Uk. Our venue would not of been the easiest for her to cart all of her equipment around but she still managed without any complaints. Will be using her again if ever needed a makeup artist while in the Uk.

Nervous to Happy
From the practice to the actual day of my wedding was wonderful. I don’t wear makeup and being an older bride, I was very nervous about having it done. Claire listened, walked me through step by step answered any questions I had, Thank you Claire.X

I felt like an absolute princess.
''Thank you for everything at the weekend. I've managed to have a couple of days to calm down! Everyone looked absolutely stunning and I felt like an absolute princess. I would like to also say thank you for being so calm, with everything going on in the background you definitely helped calm me down so I wasn't stressing! I can't thank you enough and I am super excited to get all my photos back!''

Couldn’t have asked for more!
From making initial enquires, hair and makeup trial and on the big day Claire was fantastic! Nothing was too much trouble and she was able to accommodate my idea and vision flawlessly! Bridesmaids and mother of the bride extremely happy also.

What about your business are you most proud of?

My most proud moment was winning 'Highly Commended' for the wedding Industry awards 2021.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Gosh, there are quite a few amazing ideas I have seen but one that sticks in my mind, because it was so effective, was when a bride had made her own bouquet. Instead of flowers she had made origami flowers out of old maps. Her colour scheme was light blue plus, her and her partner loved travelling together so it was a perfect personal touch.

What do you love most about your job?

Being part of someones special day and watching how happy everyone is.

What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?

Always drink plenty of water. Start a good skin care routine about a year before your wedding to ensure your skin is at it's best.

How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?

I allow plenty of time for each person for their hair and make up so the morning can feel relaxed and calm ensuring everyone can enjoy themselves.
