Absolute dream!

Claire, without you my wedding day would not have been the same. Not only did the make up and hair look incredible on all four of us but you helped us in so many more ways! From calming me down to helping me into my dress to even dropping bridesmaids off when the taxi didn't turn up.
You are an absolute gem! Your personality, your funny sense of humour. You absolutely made my day what it was and I will forever be thankful for that!
You also made my mother in law feel like a princess and she felt beautiful which is all I ever wanted.
You were amazing with my kids and the hectic house and dogs. I genuinely could not and would not ever do an event again without you by my side. You're my make up artist for life now. You are amazing!

Wedding Day Hair & Makeup

I want to thank Claire being an integral part of my wedding journey. From the initial consultation to the nerve-laden wedding day, her professionalism, calm demeanour and, of course, skills were evident. For every compliment I received on the day, I have her thank for making my hair and makeup look stunning. Claire and her assistant also did hairstyles for my five bridesmaids and both mums to top it off, and they all looked fab! It is my absolute pleasure to recommend Claire as she has made my wedding day that little bit more special just for being part of it! xx

Empathetic, bubbly superwoman!

Claire was truly amazing! Punctual, catered to my needs, gave me calming-down tips. The colour palette was beautiful and matched my red-headed skin tone smoothly.

The makeup lasted all day and evening, when me and my new Husband/friends partied til late. Nothing smudged!

During the makeup trial, she came to my home and I was insanely nervous but she made me feel comfortable and we had lots to talk about.

Thank you so much, you're an angel, Claire!

Many thanks again Claire

The calming presence you need!

Claire was fab both at trial and on my big day. She was such a calming presence and made me and my bridesmaids all at ease!

She did a fab job with our hair and makeup, we strongly recommend! It lasted all day and didn't smudge a milimetre! As the bride I also got a mac lipstick to top up later on in the night! Brilliant!

Claire was so responsive to any questions we had and suggested we use Pinterest to get some ideas which was fab as I was clueless!

She even locked up the house after us as we were cutting it fine for the ceremony!

Late for my wedding and not suitable for Asian makeup

Claire is super sweet and lovely but she was 15 minutes late for my trial then half an hour late on my wedding day. This added a lot of unnecessary stress to the day and made the rest of my morning prep really rushed when really you want to feel calm on the day.

At my makeup trial, her products are great and the base looked flawless but I wouldn't recommend her for eastern Asian faces. Our facial structures are different to western faces so when I wanted to try a more complex eye look, my eyes ended up looking really wonky, one eye bigger than the other. Always have a trial first!

I went with her for hair in the end and it did look lovely but not worth all the extra stress that morning.

Such a relaxed and positive morning before the Big Day!

Claire and her hair technician Anette were wonderful from beginning to end, offering a fun and flexible approach to my Wedding day!

From the trial to the final, finished, article Claire was supportive and approachable!

Claire have great ideas and was flexible toward trying different styles offering small tweaks up until the day!

Myself and my Bridesmaids never felt rush and Claire and Anette added a calming effect to the morning as a whole.

My make up suited me and felt comfortable throughout the day, it also lasted for hours without a smudge in sight!

I cannot thank Claire and Anette more for their work, I felt my best on my big day!

Thank you

Victoria

Chilled, lovely, and professional service.

It was really lovely having Claire's services for my wedding. We had a hair and make-up trial, which helped me understand how it would work and what to expect, and then on the day Claire and Annette were so kind, flexible, and professional whilst getting me, my mother and bridesmaids ready for the wedding. They created a nice, chilled atmosphere, and were very kind and open to adjustments and requests. I would highly recommend! Last but not least, I felt amazing!

Excellent MUA

My daughter, Heather was married on 22/09/22. Claire was charged with the task of hair and make-up for the bride, myself, and the bride's sister.
Not only was the result fantastic but Claire was very flexible, even arriving at the crack of dawn to ensure we were ready for an early ceremony.
Claire is calm and efficient which is perfect for putting nervous brides at ease. We could not have been in better hands. I would thoroughly recommend Claire to anyone seeking an MUA for their wedding.

Muncaster Castle wedding 20th August

Claire did make up for myself and five of my bridesmaids. She did an exceptional job for all of us and we were all really pleased with our hair and make up for the big day. I would recommend Claire to anyone looking for a professional and reliable wedding hair and make up artist.

Wedding makeup

Claire did the makeup for my wedding party. We were all really pleased with our look and we looked and felt fabulous. We all looked flawless on the photographs and everyone commented on how great we looked. Our makeup stated in place throughout the wedding until I removed it!
Claire is the ultimate professional and exceptionally good at her job. She’s also a lovely person. I would highly recommend her!

Approachable but expert stylist

Claire did a beautiful job with my hair and took time at both the trial and on the day to make sure I had exactly what I wanted. Equally important for me was that she was warm and friendly company, and totally put me at ease, making the whole experience really enjoyable.
