Wedding hair & makeup

I found Laura on Hitched. I emailed Laura to ask for a price for H&M for myself & 2 bridesmaids. Laura came back quickly. I then booked a trail for myself. It was a great experience. Laura is professional & chatty. She makes you feel that you are her only client. We chatted through what I wanted & Laura got to work. I never felt I was having H&M that Laura wanted it was all about how comfortable I felt & what I wanted. On the big day Laura turned up bang on time & started doing her magic. She made us all feel relaxed & pampered. I looked amazing & exactly the look I was going for. Hollywood glam. I had Hollywood waves with made up eyes & lashes, H&M lasted all day, even though Laura gave me a touch up pot. Which I did not need. It was perfect. If you are looking for a H&M professional then Laura is the women for the job. Laura even put my wedding shoes on for me on the day. She really was amazing. Price is reasonable & the whole experience is amazing. She made me feel beautiful on my wedding day. Thank you Laura xx

Incredible service

Laura is an outstanding MUA. She understood my vision of wanting a natural and subtle look and brought it to life perfectly. We had so many compliments throughout the day on the professionalism of the make up and what an incredibly bonus that it is all cruelty free!

Loved my hair and makeup!

Laura was such a pleasure to have as my hair and makeup artist for my wedding. Professional, friendly, relaxed and she did an amazing job for both my hair and makeup. She was very open to listening to what I liked or didn’t like and was happy as well to adjust things as we went along to get the look that I wanted. Even when I didn’t quite know myself until we worked through it together!
Thank you for making my wedding prep so enjoyable Laura! It was a pleasure to have you as part of our day.

The best MUA More than I could have ever wished for on my wedding day

Laura has gone above and beyond my expectations! From my inital make-up trial she gave me such great, honest advice to help get my skin in great condition ready for the big day. She uses only the best cruelty free products and let's just say she understood the brief! Laura made me and my bridal party feel at ease and she's professional along with being great fun! I highly recommend Laura's services.

Look no further, Laura is the one

If you are looking for a fabulous make-up artist for your wedding or special event then look no further. Laura did all of my bridal party make-up and boy she didn't disappointment. She has such a lovely approachable personality and listens to what type of look you want to achieve to make you look natural but extremely special. Laura helped with various other roles on the day from helping me into my dress, shoes and fixing my jewellery to reminding me at the very last minute to have a spray of perfume. She has a lovely calm demeanor which is needed on such occasions and she kept me focused and managed the time of the proceedings perfectly. ❤️

Talented and Amazing

Laura made my wedding morning so stress free and enjoyable. She listened to everything I wanted and her skills and knowledge made me feel in safe hands. She put up with me being indecisive and helped me find the perfect look! When she showed me my finished hair and makeup in the mirror I was stunned! So talented and genuinely a lovely person - thank you!

Never felt more beautiful!

Laura was amazing from start to finish. She understood what my inspo was at my trial and took time to explain options. She gave Advice on skincare to and what make up would suit my face and theme. On the day she was so relaxed and friendly. She made us all look incredible despite all having different styles and comfort levels with make up. On my wedding day we had 40mph winds (outdoor reception) and all our hair and makeup stayed exactly as she’d left it all day!

Faultless from start to finish!

I was always looking for a very soft, natural dewy look for my wedding day and Laura ticked every single box in delivering that for me! Not only is she incredible at her job, I felt like I had know her for years because of how relaxed I felt with her. I was very nervous about having my makeup done as this was not something I had ever had done before and I was worried it was going to look too cakey. As soon as I looked in the mirror after my trial I was blown away, not only did I look amazing (if I do say so myself) I felt amazing and for someone who lacks confidence like I do it felt incredible to feel so good. On the morning of the wedding my mum was taken to A&E unwell and we were unsure if she was going to make it in time for wedding. I had informed Laura prior to us meeting at the venue and when I got there she met me with open arms and gave me the BIGGEST hug (something I will never forget). Laura was such a massive support for me that morning, we laughed together and cried together and she kept me calm the whole time. We got the news that my mum was on her way to the venue and Laura worked so hard and managed to get me (and Mum) ready on time and we both looked FABULOUS! Laura is amazing and anyone who has booked her or is thinking of doing so, you are in very safe hands!

I can't recommend Laura enough!

I can't recommend Laura enough. Not only did she do an amazing job with my hair and make-up, but she also worked wonders on the hair and make-up for my bridesmaids and mother of the bride (who was very nervous about wearing any make up!).

Laura always listened to my requests and executed them perfectly. I don't typically wear a lot of make-up, but she was able to create a natural look that enhanced my features while still feeling like me. Plus, her prices are incredibly reasonable, which is always a plus when you're planning a wedding!

Laura was great fun to be around while we all got ready! Everything felt very smooth and calm, with the timings working out perfectly, including extra time for catch ups. Planning a wedding can definitely be stressful, but Laura put me completely at ease. She made the whole process so effortless and enjoyable.

Book Laura for your wedding!! She's talented, friendly, and knows how to make you look and feel your best.

Absolutely AMAZING!

Laura was absolutely wonderful on our wedding day and went the extra mile for us, my MOH has very severe allergies, Laura took the time to research all of the ingredients, patch test and do trials on her to make sure everything was ok. Everyone’s make up looked amazing, I would definitely use Laura again and I know my MOH will too.

Laura was wonderful!

I approached my hair and make up trial nervously, the world of hair and make up is not one I am very familiar with, so I felt very out of my comfort zone. Laura immediately put me at ease, she is friendly, bubbly and down to earth. Laura was happy to try several hair styles until we found the right one. I was algrateful for her guidance of what may or may not work for me, as a novice I felt very safe in her hands. Laura also, very helpfully, provided me with skin care advice to help my skin be at its natural best on the big day.

On our wedding day, Laura was a calming presence. We had a large bridal party, who were all ready on time and very happy with their hair and make up. Laura achieved a wonderful natural look for my make up which I was really happy with. Laura was
also really helpful on the day, she even ended up doing up the back of my dress as time was running out!

I’m really grateful to have Laura as part of our day and would definitely recommend her.

Lovely, ethical experience and results

Laura was lovely, really easy to talk to and so attentive to my wants and needs. She really wanted me to get the most out of the trial and big day, trying different styles and making sure I got the look I wanted. She has really great ideas for what suits an individual's characteristics and style and offers up great tips and advice. I recommend her to everyone and would use her services for a special occasion again. Also, the cruelty free products she uses are lovely and ethical too!
