Full Description
In 2015, due to a huge increase in demand, I went on to found the Lauren Wheeler Pro Team - bringing together a team of equally talented and kind-hearted souls to be able to better serve more brides that wanted to feel naturally beautiful on their wedding day. My signature style is soft and romantic beachy waves, paired with effortlessly natural makeup for that timeless and soft style. I have brides coming from all across the UK, as well Portugal, Italy, Denmark, Turkey & France as well as being fortunate enough to be flown out to stunning destinations such as Copenhagen, Portugal, Rome, Champagne, The Outer Hebrides & Crete. My studio is based in my Warwickshire countryside home where you'll be invited to come and relax and try out your desired hair and makeup looks. I am incredibly laid back, and you'll quite often meet me wearing little to no makeup, sipping on a herbal tea with a fragranced candle burning away. I have been very fortunate enough to be able to now call myself a multi award winning hair and makeup artist due to helping to make my brides feel the best they possibly can on their wedding day and being recognised throughout the industry for that. My work is regularly featured on wedding blogs and in wedding magazines such as Rock My Wedding, Love My Dress, Festival Brides, Whimsical Wonderland Weddings + Your Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wedding Magazine from both real weddings and styled photoshoots. I've also had the amazing opportunity to work with a few brands outside of weddings including AX Paris, Jimmy Choo & Bicester Village with my working featuring on E4 + ITV2.

Unreliable and disorganized - please avoid!
I booked Lauren a year ago in Feb 2021 for my wedding in May 2022. Just now, three months before my wedding, she suddenly realized she DOUBLE-BOOKED herself and she canceled my booking with with an email - without providing an alternative solution. This is after having been in touch to organize the trial. She NEVER replied to a call or an email without having to be chased. I really wish I had listened to my instinct and recognized this as a massive red flag of a disorganized business. Please don’t make my same mistake and look elsewhere for a HMUA for your wedding or you’ll risk having to find a new one a few weeks before your event. If you want more details, please find me on social media.

Thank you!
Dear Lauren, A big thank you for our hair and makeup services for our wedding at Stone Barn on Friday 28th September 2018. From the moment I went onto your website and to having a trial at your house, it was nothing but professionalism. Your easy-going nature and your ability to listen and give suggestions meant that I was able to look and feel my best. You did an amazing job with the bridesmaids hair too and they loved it as much as I did. I've enclosed a couple of photos of you in 'action' taken by Eve. I can't recommend you enough and I hope one day I'll get to utilise your artistry again. Big thanks & with love, Connie & Rhys xxx

THANK YOU!
Hi Lauren - SO sorry it's taken me so long to send this message but I wanted to say thank you properly for doing my hair and makeup for my wedding. You and your colleague (so sorry I can't remember her name!) were such a lovely addition to the household on the morning and I was extremely pleased with the result. I really felt like you listened to what I wanted (which was fairly vague!) but also used your own ideas to get it just right. Thank you very much indeed! Thought you might like these pics of you in action.... Best wishes Hatty (4th August bride!)

Hi Lauren I hope you’re well. I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you so much for everything you did for my wedding. I’m sorry I was a bit nervous on the morning so I wasn’t the best company but I was so pleased with my hair and makeup and what you did for my sister and my nieces. Thanks also for being so calm around me – it definitely helped having you there!! If you would like me to write a review for your website please let me know and I’ll put together something a bit more eloquent! Best wishes, Amanda

Lauren made me feel like a million dollars!
I knew from the beginning that I wanted one person to do both my hair and make up for my wedding. What I didn’t realise was that this was a difficult task! I found so many people where I liked one or the other until I found Lauren on Instagram. I loved her style and booked straight away. I don’t wear a lot of make up day to day and had heard several horror stories from friends trials where make up was caked on and told it was needed for the photos. Lauren and I were chatting away as soon as I walked through the door. I loved that she wanted to get to know me, my style and the style of the wedding before we even started on hair and make up. She was very flexible in the trial and I was really happy with the results. THEN came the wedding day, I can honestly say I have never felt so beautiful. The make up stayed in place all day and I absolutely loved my hair. I wish you could help me get ready more often! We hadn’t discussed the bridesmaids hair & make up too much in advance but I showed a few photos the morning of the wedding and Lauren & her assistant did a brilliant job of bringing it to life. Thanks so much girls!

FAQ

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Effortless, Timeless, Natural, Soft, Relaxed

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Always ensure you make your wedding 'yours'. I spend a lot of time with brides and have a lot of 'we wish we'd done this instead of this'. Just remember that everyone is there to celebrate your love, they are going to enjoy themselves no matter what you do to decorate and entertain, so ensure you really put your stamp on it.

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

Really look after your skin. There is no better canvas than hydrated, well looked after skin. Makeup can do a lot of things, but it looks so much more seamless and natural when it's not having to be used to cover and conceal. Drink plenty of water, and really invest in a good skincare routine that is suitable for you.

What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?

Always have a pressed powder and your chosen lipstick/gloss on hand to top up with throughout the day. You can ensure your lips stay kissable right through until the night, and a translucent powder with slight mattifying properties will keep you looking fresh and dewy instead of shiny.
