Dren is incredible!

Your makeup and hair artist is such a big part of your wedding day. They spend the whole morning with you and your closest, getting you all settled and prepped for heading out. Dren became a hugely calming influence on me on my wedding day. Her bubbly personality mixed with her talented hair and makeup artistry is a recipe for the most perfect prep experience I could have wished for. I struggle with sensory overload and Dren was so accommodating with this, allowing me to have breaks and checking in with me. I couldn't have wished for more!

Absolutely amazing!

Dren was absolutely the best hair and make up artist I could have asked for on our wedding day. The morning of your wedding is such an intimate thing and Dren absolutely fitting into it. During my trial Dren was so receptive to my ideas and really made me feel at ease about discussing my vision for my wedding morning. Dren had done my hair and make up before when I was a bridesmaid and I knew then she was who I wanted to do my bridal make up. Dren has done mine and my two close friends bridal make up and I would whole heartedly recommend her to anyone. Thank you so much Dren for making me feel the most beautiful I have ever felt! Emma

Beautiful inside & out.

Dren is one of the loviest people I have ever met, and I feel so lucky to have been able to book her for my hair & makeup on my wedding day.
Dren was quick to respond to messages, and always so polite and friendly.
She did the hair of my 3 bridesmaids, plus hair and makeup for myself. When I first looked in the mirror, I honestly couldn't believe I was staring back at myself. Dren made me look and feel amazing, and I wish I could have her do my hair & makeup every day!
As well as being a great person, Drens services were a great price, and so I would highly recommend!

The most perfect hair for my wedding

I can’t thank Dren enough for making my hair so incredibly special for the big day. She is so knowledgeable and friendly to talk to. It was so nice and calming on the big day. She nailed my dream hair in one go at the trial and took all the stress off for this part of the wedding. Wouldn’t have trusted anyone else with my hair. My bridal party also absolutely adored their hair. I got so many compliments on the day. Thank you Dren for everything!!

Incredible Hair and Makeup!

Dren is incredible! I've never been someone to wear lots of makeup, and was a bit nervous, but from the trial I felt so relaxed. She created the most magical hairstyle exactly how I imagined - I didn't know what to ask for when it came to makeup, but even with my bad pregnancy skin, my makeup looked amazing. On the day we were all so calm and relaxed and really enjoyed the experience. My mum had never wore makeup in her life, and Dren did such lovely natural makeup which made her feel so comfortable and confident! My bridal hair and makeup lasted all day, and many people commented on the look! I would 100% recommend any bride chooses Dren for their day, she's lovely, so talented at not only creating an amazing look but keeping everyone relaxed!

Dren is amazing!!!!!

I have never felt more beautiful than on our wedding day. Dren did a fabulous job on my hair and makeup, as well as my mum’s. She also installed some amazing extensions for me. My family loved having Dren as part of our day, she is so lovely, calm, and reassuring. Thank you SO much Dren!

So talented and such a lovely person!

I am so pleased to have found Dren to do hair and makeup for my wedding day.

At the trial Dren was so patient and happy to spend as long as needed to make any modification or suggestions, ensuring we were both happy. She really listened to preferences and vision and tailored it all perfectly.

On the wedding day itself Dren worked tirelessly to get myself and 3 bridesmaids ready. We were all so pleased with our looks and they lasted all evening, despite it being the hottest day of the year!

Would recommend Dren to everyone, so talented but also such a beautiful person - thank you so much!

Couldn't have asked for more!

I hired Dren for my wedding in September 2022 and I cannot fault her at all!

Dren did my make up exactly as I asked and it stayed on perfectly all day & night - as did my bridesmaids! Same for our hair - I also used fresh flowers in our hair which Dren accommodated with no problems.

Dren was so lovely and it was a pleasure to have her with us the morning of the wedding!

Thank you so much, Dren

Beautiful hair and make up

I'm so glad I chose Dren to be the hair and make-up artist on my wedding day. She really listened to what I wanted during the consultation and developed a natural and sophisticated make-up look that matched my colouring perfectly. She was a joy to have as part of our bridal crew on the morning itself and was such a kind, calming presence. My hair and make-up stayed looking the same all day and night - which was particularly impressive given the 36 degree heatwave conditions!

Bridal hair and make up

I am so glad I came across Dren. I am very picky and wanted a natural polished make up for my wedding. Dren knew exactly the look I was going for and I had full confidence on my wedding day!! My hair was put in a loose bun and looked so natural. Honestly I don’t think anyone could of done a better job. And she’s super nice and made me feel comfortable. Thank so so much again Drenny for contributing to my special day XX

Someone who truly puts their heart into their job

Dren was recommended to me by a friend - and I owe her the biggest thanks. From our first conversations, Dren was so helpful and responsive and seemed genuinely excited to be part of our wedding day. I am not someone who wears a lot of makeup and I’m useless with hair - so conversations around hair and makeup tend to intimidate me - but Dren made every moment fun and really put me at ease during my trial. She listened to everything I wanted and took notes throughout. On the day, Dren was with us from 6am to 1pm, working tirelessly and always with a big smile on her face. My whole bridal party loved her and it was honestly a joy to have her be part of the getting ready process. We all loved our hair and makeup, and Dren perfectly captured each of my girls’ unique styles whilst sticking to my autumnal theme. She is incredible talented and one of the kindest people you’ll ever meet! Thank you Dren!
