Wedding Hair & Makeup

It was an absolute pleasure to share my special day with Claire! Claire styled my hair and makeup beautifully, and the morning of my wedding day was just so relaxing and enjoyable! Both hair and makeup held beautifully all day - even after spending time outside, in what was windy and damp conditions at times! Thank you so much! Tiffany

Lovely professional friendly service

I booked Claire to do my hair and make up for my wedding and I have to say she was absolutely fantastic. I had some concerns prior to my wedding day as my hair can be quite thin in places and I obviously wanted to look my best. Claire put my mind at ease as soon as I had my trial and I knew I was in the hands of the perfect person for the job. She was so professional and friendly and I just felt so comfortable and reassured by her. She turned up at the crack of dawn on the day with a huge beaming smile on her face and that smile stayed there the whole time! She is quite simply a wonderful person with exceptional skills, she really knows her craft. I was delighted with the look she created for me on the day and my curls and make up lasted all day long. She stayed in touch throughout the lead up to the wedding and even sent me a few pics she'd taken from the morning of all of us girls getting ready after. I would highly recommend Claire if you're looking for a warm, friendly, professional service from an absolute master in her field. Thank you so much Claire, I couldn't have asked for more.

Highly recommend

Claire is a very talented and experienced make-up artist. I loved my natural Bridal look and literally couldn't believe (despite my face enduring love, sweat and tears) that it stayed on flawlessly all day and night! She has a lovely calm and professional energy which is just what a Bride needs on her big day. Highly recommend.

Fantastic!

Claire is absolutely amazing. She did my hair and make up for my wedding and did a brilliant job. She was so friendly and professional throughout the whole process. Claire managed to fit me in for a trial very close to my wedding day as I was let down by another artist. Nothing was ever too much trouble and she listened to my feedback after my trial.
Prices are also really reasonable.
I would highly recommend Claire.
Thank you so much 😊

100% recommend Claire as a fantastic make-up artist and hairstylist!

It was so lovely to work with Claire on my wedding day, she was such a lovely calming and happy presence on the day and really helped to make the morning as stress-free as possible for me and my bridesmaids! I (and my bridesmaids!) don't wear makeup often, so Claire did a fantastic job in making me us all feel confident without looking or feeling like someone else! I got so many compliments on my hair especially, so thank you! I'd wholeheartedly recommend Claire as a very talented make-up artist and hairstylist with a very warm and friendly approach. It was a pleasure to have you there on the day!

Claire is absolutely brilliant!

Claire is fantastic, and exactly who you want to be with you on your wedding day!
As I can struggle with wearing makeup, I was nervous about having it for my wedding day. Claire was friendly and put me right at ease, took the time to understand my worries, gave honest advice, and then used her extensive knowledge and experience to interpret what I was hoping to achieve to create a look that ended up surpassing all my expectations.
She was the consummate professional on the day, creating a relaxed yet fun atmosphere whilst she worked. I absolutely loved the hairstyle and makeup that lasted perfectly for the whole day and even survived the dancing.
Thank you for making me laugh, keeping me calm, and making me feel beautiful on my big day!

Warm, calm and professional

From first contact through trial and wedding day, Claire was prompt, professional and made me feel relaxed in her artistic care! Her pricing is transparent and affordable whilst still using high end products. I also love the touch of ‘glitter and gloss’ for the flower girls. An all round top notch service.

Perfect in every way

I genuinely couldn’t have asked for a more supportive and talented hair and make up artist for my wedding day. She kept everyone at ease the entire morning, even helping my mum with my dress. Claire made the the morning build up special and memorable and even better was able to make me look half decent! I had so many compliments all day.

She knows her onions.

Claire was absolutely lovely. I am a very low maintenance bride so I didn't really give her a lot of direction or even want a trial. Without any guidance, she was able to show up and give me a completely magical look. I have already booked her for another event and would recommend her to anyone. She made me feel like a queen.

Fantastic!!

Claire did the make up for my wedding and it was absolutely fantastic. I really felt like a million dollars and the products were top quality. I have some fussy bridesmaids with sensitive/acne prone skin and Claire was so good at making them feel at ease and they were really pleased with their make up. Claire was also really good fun to have around in the morning when we were getting ready! :)

Thank you Claire, you were AMAZING! Xx

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.

Claire Harmer - Just Amazing!

Claire Harmer did my wedding makeup along with my bridesmaids and mum. Claire really listened to what I wanted during the trials and spent the time making sure I was 100% happy. Nothing was too much trouble and Claire was always available if I had any questions. My makeup on the day was amazing and still perfect when I woke up the next day. Claire made us all feel so relaxed on the morning and joined in with all the wedding fun. She really felt like a friend. One of my bridesmaids never wears makeup yet Claire did it and she was so pleased with how it looked! I now stay in touch with Claire and go to her for beauty treatments.
