Stunning wedding hair and make up- Louise is exceptional!

I was lucky enough to have Louise and her assistant Hannah for my big day on 10th June and I was beyond happy with my wedding hair and make up! Between them they also did the mother of the bride's hair and make up, 4 older bridesmaids hair and make up and my 2 year old niece's hair. I was worried we wouldn't have enough time as I had a 1pm ceremony, but they were able to get us all done without a rush. I had a great trial in Louise's studio room at her house which put my mind at rest knowing I was in great hands, I still can't get over the wealth of experience Louise has and how lucky I was to have her on the big day. Thank you so much Louise!

Amazing Wedding Hair and Make-Up

I am not one to wear much make up or do much with my hair but from the start Louise could not have been more wonderful. Louise completely put me at ease and from the trial through to the Wedding day ensured that I had all the information that I required. More than anything we had fun!
I could not be happier with how my hair and make up turned out. Louise, along with her assistant, also did the hair and make up for my mum and bridesmaids. Louise was calm and incredibly professional on the day itself and it felt like we had extended family helping us get ready!
I would 100% recommend Louise to all future brides due to not only her kind and friendly approach, but her calm and professional manner, and also due to how fantastic she made us all look on the day.
One of my Bridesmaids was so impressed she has already booked Louise for her wedding next year!!

So lovely to work with!

Louise provided hair and make up services for me, my mum and 3 bridesmaids in August. Through the whole process she was a pleasure to work with. I had two trials with Louise as I changed my thoughts on my hairstyle after the first and she couldn't have been more accommodating / flexible / keen to make sure we got it exactly right. The result was that I felt so relaxed on the day and loved how it turned out.

Most importantly though, Louise is just so lovely and fun to work with - which is exactly what you need when you're bringing someone into your get ready morning, which is such a special time with your family and bridal party.

Thanks for making me feel 10/10 Louise!

Thank you Louise

I am so pleased I chose Louise to do the hair and make up of me and my bridesmaids on my wedding day.

I had a trial beforehand where Louise was very knowledgable and took time to trial different styles. She took lots of pictures which was so useful to look back on and choose the look I wanted.

On the day, Louise and her assistant Helen were punctual, friendly, calm and made the whole morning run smoothly! We all felt beautiful and our hair and make up lasted all day. I would definitely recommend Louise.

Thank you Louise!

The multitasking muha!

I love Louise’s work and professionalism. She was flexible from the start, she showed commitment and talent throughout. She is very knowledgeable and can guide you to find an amazing look that will make you look stunning in real life but also on photo and video. And I know this is easier said than done:)
She did my mu and hair, plus’s bridesmaids mu, and since she had a little extra time she even helped the bridesmaids with their final hair touches.
Thank you Louiseđź’ž

A pleasure from start to finish

I found Louise on Hitched and loved her style of work, as well as her more affordable price point for high-quality wedding hair and makeup. My trial with her was great, she accommodated myself and my fiance and was warm and welcoming into her home. By the time the wedding day arrived, I had changed the style of makeup I wanted entirely, but Louise was unphased and myself and the wedding party had a lovely, stress-free morning.
I'd recommend Louise to anyone, she's guaranteed to bring a smile to your face, and you'll leave her feeling more beautiful that ever :)
Thanks again, Louise xxx

Wedding hair and make up

Louise was my hair and make up artist for my wedding in October.

She was extremely professional and helpful leading up to the wedding, at my trial, and on the day.

At my trial she was able to give great advice on how to do my male up as I was unsure of what I wanted, and on the day it was perfect.

My bridesmaids were also very happy with their hair and make up.

I would highly recommend Louise to anyone looming for a hair or make up artist for the wedding or any other special event

Fab, professional experience!

I hired Louise to do my wedding hair and makeup in August, and I’m so pleased I did. From the moment we met at the trial I felt like I was in safe hands. She offered her expertise and also listened to my requests, and managed to replicate the trial perfectly on the day. She was also a lovely presence on the morning of the wedding, very calm and professional and made me feel totally at ease. Thanks again Louise! Xx

Highly recommend

Louise and her team did a fantastic job on my wedding hair and make up, as well as my mum’s and bridesmaids’. She was a true professional and I felt completely safe in her hands. She was also a calming influence in the morning when we were getting ready and ensured that we were completely on time at every point. I felt so beautiful on my wedding day, and I know that my bridal party did too!

Wonderful experience

Louise did my hair and my bridal parties' hair as well as my makeup for my wedding and she did a wonderful job! She was so easy to work with in the planning, making adjustments again and again where needed and was always so responsive.
On the day she was so lovely; worked efficiently but paid attention to the detail. I was very happy with the final loom. Thanks Louise!

A true professional

Louise made me look so beautiful I couldn’t hardly believe it! She also met my bridesmaids on the day and gave them each exactly the looks they wanted, so we all shone in our pictures. She was a calming presence in the chaos, and kept me having fun. I can be a bit awkward and nervous but she had me smiling and chatting away. I really suggest booking the trial - we talked over everything so I didn’t have to make any big decisions about it on the day, when I had a thousand other things to think about. My makeup and hair remained flawless through pictures, tears and dancing, book Louise if you want your wedding look in safe hands.

Fantastic experience!

Louise is lovely and I am so pleased that I booked her for my wedding on 22/06/22. She did a wonderful job on mine and my 3 bridesmaids hair and makeup, I couldn’t have been happier. I was so nervous at the beginning of the day but Louise was really good at keeping me calm. It was actually a really fun part of the day with plenty of giggles. Louise was punctual, organised and skilled in her work. I highly recommend her, in fact one of my bridesmaids has now booked Louise for her own wedding next year! From one Louise to another, thank you so much x

Fantastic service for a last minute Jan wedding

Louise did my hair and make up this January and brought a colleague along to cover to 6 bridesmaids.

I would highly recommend Louise as she made me feel so relaxed in the morning, we were unable to do a trial because of covid but she talked me through every step on the way to make sure I was happy with the look.

I have 4 sisters and many nieces and nephews so the getting ready process could have been chaotic, however Louise took this in her stride and made sure we were ready on time.

We were all very pleased with our hair and make up, which stayed in place despite the happy tears and hours of dancing!

I loved her personal touches, such as bringing extra hair decorations and eye lashes along in case we forgot (which we did!)

The getting ready morning remains a wonderful memory in my mind, don’t hesitate to book Louise - she was fab!
