I can't recommend Lauren highly enough
I can't recommend Lauren highly enough, we are not getting married until 2022 but I have already had a makeup trial with Lauren. From the moment I messaged enquiring about prices and availability Lauren has been so helpful! I had contacted other artists and asked why a trial was only a few weeks before to me if you didn't click with the person or didn't like the outcome it left little chance to change. Lauren understood my concern and explained and said she would happily do a trial whenever I would like which straight away put me at ease. At the trial Lauren was amazing talking through ideas asking where and what style our wedding is going to be so to get the best fit for my makeup. We didn't stop talking I was so at ease with Lauren and couldn't thank her enough for making me feel so at ease. Lauren was kind enough to spend time talking about skincare routine and recommended products. If anyone is looking for a makeup artist for any occasion Lauren is your girl!

Just amazing, book today
Lauren was amazing throughout the whole experience. She was flexible, letting me make continual changes to which bridesmaids were being done, even the day before. She was always a willing ear for me me to ask questions, have a moan or just vent for a second. She is the utmost professional and just perfect to keep me calm for the morning of, but was still cracking jokes and making me laugh. I honestly cannot recommend Lauren enough and I feel that not only did I find the perfect person to do my hair and make up, I also made a friend.

Lauren is super talented and passionate
I've been lucky enough to have experienced Lauren's expertise with many different services over the years, but was thrilled to be able to use her bridal service for my wedding. Lauren always understands what her clients want and need, especially for those of us that don't really know how to achieve the special occasion looks or being made up with being over done! Lauren is super talented and passionate about what she does, and I love how she opts for smaller brands with better ethics. I can't recommend her enough!

Lauren is absolutely amazing
Lauren is absolutely amazing, she did the most incredible job at doing the make up for my hen party and wedding. She was so professional, listened to everything we all wanted and absolutely nailed it. She was so friendly too and left the girls (and myself) feeling so happy and at ease in her presence. Nothing was too much to ask. I would 100% recommend Lauren for any event. Thank you so much Lauren xxx

What is your most memorable wedding?

I recently did hair and makeup for a good friend and colleague who was feeling a little nervous on the day. Her whole bridal party were all big theatre buffs, and I first started working in theatre and musicals, so we ended up putting on a Disney Sing-along playlist to lift the mood. By the end of it the whole bridal party - photographers included - were singing the harmonies and doing the voices. It was a great start to the day, and I always think it's amazing if you can start the morning as you mean to go on!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, cruelty free, natural glam and FUN

What about your business are you most proud of?

It's genuinely always an honour to be chosen to be part of someone's big day. It doesn't matter if you've done 50 weddings before - for the bride this is THEIR day and it means a lot of be a part of that.

What do you love most about your job?

Making people feel like the most beautiful version of themselves. I work with a lot of brides who maybe aren't used to wearing a lot of makeup or are worried they will end up looking like a different person. I love that moment where the bride can look in the mirror and go 'wow!' without going 'Who is she?'

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

I like to spend some time getting to know my brides through the trial and planning process so by the day I have a good idea of their kind of sense of humour and style, and how to keep the mood calm and relaxed. I always plan my schedules with plenty of time for tears, tea breaks and toilet trips so nothing is a rush, but I've been known to crack out the bad puns and dad jokes to lift the mood when need be.
