    Amazing experience

    Spence and Oliver were the perfect hair and make up team for me! Gemma did both for myself (the bride), as well as hair for my family and flower girls and I'd thoroughly recommend her!

    Incredible

    I could never thank or recommend Spence & Oliver enough - beautiful Emma absolutely exceeded expectations and made everyone feel so relaxed and special on the day. She knew exactly what I wanted and meant so I knew I was in safe hands - thanks so much girls!

    A-maz-ing!

    I am so pleased I booked with Spence & Oliver for my bridal hair and make-up! I had left it quite late to organise due to lockdowns etc but Emma was super helpful and organised Ruby to do hair and make up for myself, my bridesmaid and mum.
    Ruby was absolutely brilliant. She listened to what we all wanted (and was super patient and creative when I was being indecisive about my hair!) My make up was so much better than I had ever imagined, and I am still obsessing over how good my hair was! The others were also so happy with how they looked, and all of them kept saying how lovely Ruby was.
    The communication with Emma was so easy, she responded quickly to emails and was flexible when we added an extra person in for hair at short-notice. Also the whole thing was really good value for money, compared to some of the other quotes I had got prior to booking with Spence & Oliver. Would 100% recommend!

    The perfect wedding morning

    I knew after my hair and makeup rehearsal that I was in safe hands, so on my wedding morning I was able to relax and let Emma and Lauren do their thing. They were so friendly and made everything feel so relaxed and easy. I felt amazing and went into the day with such confidence. I can’t thank them enough. I wish they could do my hair and makeup every day!

    Spence and Oliver The Bridal Beauty Co's reply:

    Thank you so much for this Hannah ? It was an absolute pleasure to be there on the morning. Congratulations again xxxxx

    Truly 5* service

    Cannot recommend Lauren & Emma at Spence & Oliver enough!! They captured my vision for my hair and make up perfectly and were a joy to have with us on the morning getting ready. They also did my bridesmaids and mother of the bride too and we had such lovely comments about how our make up lasted all day (and night!) and how stunning the hair was. Thank you so much!!

    Amazing, stress-free & made me feel amazing!

    I originally had another hair and make up artist booked for my wedding, but due to a double booking (due to COVID) Spence and Oliver came to the rescue with only a few short weeks notice. The trial was great, allowing me to express my ideas as well as change things where needed.

    They were easily contactable through-out the whole process and a joy to work with. On my wedding day they made me feel beautiful, with make up that stayed on all day fetching many compliments. The morning with them getting ready was very relaxed and they made me and my bridal party feel at ease.

    They also did hair and make up for 4 of my bridesmaids, mother of the bride and mother of the groom. All loved their experience and the outcome. They all looked amazing!

    Can't recommend them enough - from start to finish they were a joy, so professional, street-free and great!

    Spence and Oliver The Bridal Beauty Co's reply:

    Thanks so much Georgie, you looked amazing and we loved being a part of your day!

    All the best,
    Emma & Ruby xx

    Fabulous hair and makeup duo!

    I would highly recommend Lauren and Emma to any bride! Not only did they make me look fabulous for my wedding day, but did beautiful hair and makeup for my mother and 2 sisters! Lauren and Emma were both so accommodating (seeing as I had to postpone the wedding twice due to COVID) and they made me feel so comfortable on the day. Thanks again to them both for their amazing services!

    The best in the business!

    If you are looking for wedding/occasion make up then look no further than Spence and Oliver! I feel extremely lucky to have had the lovely Lauren looking after myself, my Mum, Mother in Law and 5 Bridesmaids on my wedding day. We were all so blown away with our make up, everyone looked so beautiful!

    From the trial to my wedding day, Lauren was nothing short of amazing, I showed her a few photos of the look I was after and she delivered exactly that. Communication was great from the very beginning, even with COVID and a postponement being thrown in - Lauren even took the time to check in with me the evening before my wedding which was lovely, especially as I was a bag of nerves!

    The make up on the day was flawless and still looked just as amazing at the end of the night! We all agreed that it didn't even feel like we were wearing make up, no cakiness and none of that horrible tacky feeling.. just beautiful fresh-faced make up that we didn't want to take off! Lauren is so talented and really is at the top of her game. Her skills are second to none, she is such a lovely person and she felt like one of the girls. I could not recommend herself and Spence and Oliver more. BOOK THEM!

    Lauren - I will never be able to find the words to truly thank you enough for how you made me feel on my wedding day. I felt a confidence I've never felt before and you really did deliver the make up of dreams! We received so many compliments and Mum still says she wants to carry you around in her pocket to do her make up every day! Thank you for being lovely you and THANK YOU for our exquisite make up.. can we do it again?!

    The best duo to trust in for your special day!

    I couldn’t recommend Lauren & Emma more! They are friendly, professional, but most importantly so talented at what they do. I’ve also never seen my bridesmaids be so calm and pleased with the outcome without a trial! You can trust them completely to make you feel your absolute best on your special day. Thank you both so much x

    Thank you so much for this Camilla! It was such a pleasure to be there with you all. Xx Beautiful photos ❤️❤️

    Absolutely brilliant!

    I cannot thank Spence and Oliver enough for making me look my very best on my wedding day! With just few weeks to plan it, I felt quite nervous about outcomes but lovely Emma booked me for a trial with Ruby and, oh boy, I knew I was in the best hands! Ruby listened to my ideas and made me feel at ease. When I looked in the mirror, I knew she was tremendously talented! I can safely say she made me look my best on my wedding day, with gorgeous natural, long lasting make-up and glamorous hair. I felt so beautiful and feminine and got many many compliments. She arrived on time, was so bubbly and put me at ease in the hours before big moment. I cannot recommend enough and feel like it would be the best choice for any future bride
    The booking was very effortless as well, Emma was replying so swiftly, no hidden costs and very affordable for the service and products. Forever grateful! ❤️

    Fab hair and make up

    I found Spence & Oliver via Rock My Wedding and they were fantastic! Emma was very helpful and they had availability at short notice which I was thankful for. My hair and make up artist Natasha totally understood what look I wanted to go for at my trial, and on the day it was even better than I could’ve hoped! Natasha was such a lovely and calm presence on the day, and I loved how my whole bridal party looked. She gave me some great suggestions about my lipstick and hair pins ahead of my wedding, which again made it really easy on the day, and my hair and make up lasted all day and well in to the evening so I was thrilled. I would 100% recommend Spence & Oliver to others looking for amazing hair and make up, and I think they were pretty affordable too for the high level service you got. Thanks SO much to Emma, Natasha and the team for making me look and feel amazing on my wedding day x

    Fantastic service - exactly what I wanted!

    Lauren and Emma were fantastic to work with - they were efficient and friendly but most importantly their hair and make up skills were second to none! They listened to what I wanted and made me feel beautiful and confident.
    They were also very understanding and flexible when dealing with constantly changing plans.

    Amazing hair and make up!

    I found Spence & Oliver through Instagram and was immediately impressed with how glowing and dewey their brides always looked. Having six very different bridesmaids, I was anxious to make them all happy however Lauren and Amanda went above and beyond! Everyone was ecstatic with their hair and make up, it was natural and enhancing and my hair and make up did not budge at all over the course of the day. We had a great time getting ready with the team, they really put us at ease and didn't fluster at all when the venue was hurrying us along! I also found it so comforting that Lauren and Amanda work together as a team, it made it a seamless process. I only wish I could have them do my hair and make up every day!

    Incredible!!

    Emma did my hair and make up and was simply incredible. She was so professional and relaxed and I had every confidence that she would help to make me look and feel amazing on the big day. She also did the bridesmaids' hair and they all looked fabulous. I would absolutely recommend Emma to every bride!
