Talented and professional- loved her!

Fran did an amazing job doing my hair and makeup on the day as well as my bridesmaids. I loved the hair but I was absolutely blown away by her skill with makeup. She knew exactly how to flatter my features so that I was looking like the best version of myself, and kept things looking very natural which is exactly what I had asked for.
The best part for me was the trial run- Fran took so much time to help me find a hair style I loved- it was really valuable for me that we could try out so many variations.
In addition to her talent, Fran was lovely to work with throughout the process- organised, flexible, and kind… I highly recommend her.

Boho wedding of dreams!!

I found it so difficult finding make up artists for my wedding as it seemed that everyone only knew how to do full glam as if you're going night clubbing! Then i found Fran and oh my goodness, she is amazing! She made me feel so beautiful and fashiony (if that's a word) and used the most amazing products on my skin. I had a very natural glowy look - i don't know how she did it, but she made it look like i had barely any make up on. The make-up lasted the whole day and i was still receiving compliments in the evening!

The products used were luxurious and left my skin feeling so soft. I honestly wish i had Fran to do my make up and skincare every day because she's magical.

If you're looking for beautiful boho, natural, fashiony editorial style..... BOOK HER NOW!

Thank-you Fran for making my big day so special by taking away all the worries i had of looking good.

Thank you Fran!

Fran did my hair and make up for my wedding and my bridal parties make up. Fran is so easy going, talented and professional. My family all loved her and she was a joy to have around on the day. Everyone looked amazing and I loved my hair and makeup. The time wizzed by in the end and I didn’t have time to properly thank Fran, so thank you so much!

Fran is incredible!

I cannot recommend Fran enough! As someone that didn't want the "traditional" bride look or full glam Fran's experience in fashion/editorial jumped out at me.

From the moment I arrived at the consultation, Fran totally got me and my style/vibe. My hair and makeup on the wedding day made me feel me (but better!), it lasted all day and night (we partied hard), and looked absolutely beautiful in all our photos. Fran also did my two sisters and mum's makeup for the wedding (so a range of ages/styles), and again totally got them..everyone literally glowed!

Fran's work is stunning, she made everyone feel at ease and was simply lovely to have part of our big day.

Beautiful hair and make up - I couldn’t recommend more

If you’re looking for perfect (and I mean perfect) glowy, flawless beautiful make up then Frances is the one. I am extremely fussy and I was petrified of looking too ‘done up’ for my big day (which is common for bridal make up), but Frances absolutely nailed perfectly the right balance of natural, elevated and striking. Her background in fashion means that you get to look cool and beautiful and can look back at your wedding photos forever and be so grateful to look so effortlessly chic and beautiful. A timeless gift! Frances knows exactly how to choose your perfect colour pallet and achieve the most flawless, dewy skin which catches the light beautifully in every angle/shot. My hair had the perfect wave, the wave I have in my whole life never been able to create myself (annoyingly!). So thank you so much for providing your magic on me and making me feel like a bohemian goddess for one day! She’s also the most warmest, calming beautiful person ever, and you will ultimately want her to stay for your entire wedding!!

Extremely happy

I couldn’t have been more happy with my make up and hair. It was exactly what I had asked for and envisioned for my wedding day. Fran made me feel so comfortable and relaxed.

A Bride's Dream

In a world of huge brows, contouring and a daunting amount of makeup brushes required to apply a simple eyeshadow, this tomboy knew the task of my bridal makeup had to be devoted to someone other than me.
With a sea of tik tok and insta tutorials at my disposal, I was completely lost and overwhelmed at the potential looks and the options I should consider.. Not really knowing a thing about beauty products and skin tone, I knew I had to look closer to home for advice. A family friend recommended Fran and from our very first contact she was polite and genuinely interested in what I needed and what she could do for ME.. She was keen to understand my style, theme and my vision. We had a test run 3 months prior to the wedding, which I appreciated because I was so nervous that I wouldn't like looking "bridal". As the professional, she guided my makeup choices and the test run was a success. The day was even better. My makeup was flawless, despite the MASSIVE angry spot which appeared the morning prior.

Fran arrived early on the day and was a calming influence after my hairdresser arrived late. Fortunately for me, Fran is an expert in her craft and was able to apply my makeup flawlessly while my head was being tugged around by the hairdresser. With the most perfect dress to be showcased, my makeup was absolute fire! I've recommended Fran to absolutely everyone I know getting married in need of makeup services.. (She does hair too, but I had already organised this prior to our contact)

If you're considering a professional makeup artist for your wedding day, you HAVE to consider Fran. You will not regret it.

Absolutely brilliant!

Fran is absolutely excellent, hire her! She arrived early, was calm and professional and had everything ready for me and the bridal party. She listened to everything we asked for and the results were beautiful. Everyone looked amazing (ages ranged from 18 - 65!) Thank you so much for helping make the day so special Fran.
