Full Description
I provide a professional and reliable service on your big day, arriving in plenty of time to ensure a relaxed morning. I use a variety of top quality products and work alongside you to create the perfect style to match your dress and theme. We would have a trial a few months before the wedding to perfect the chosen look so that on the day everything is nice and relaxed and there is no need to worry about the hair and makeup not being what you wanted. I have a very natural and soft makeup style, making sure you still look like you when you say 'I do'. I can cater for groups of up to 6 people doing both hair and makeup. Including bride, bridesmaids, mother of the bride, mother of the groom and flower girls. Please get in touch if you would like a quote or to find out more! Harriet x

Calm, relaxed and just perfect!
Aside from doing my hair & make-up exactly how I wanted it, not to mention two bridesmaids and a flower girl, Harriet was simply a dream to have around on the day. Everything ran exactly to schedule but it was so smooth I didn't even realise she had a schedule! She was relaxed and friendly, and very good at intuiting when to chat and when a bit of quiet was needed. She was also good at keeping the conversation away from last minute wedding details that it was too late to worry about! My make-up looked exactly how I wanted, as did my hair, and I was amazed at how incredible my bridesmaids looked with even the lightest of make-up. As the hotel was 5 minutes walk from the touch, Harriet was even dedicated enough to come and make sure no hair was out of place before my grand entrance! I wish I could add more than one photo to show you the results...

Fantastic hair and makeup 💕
Harriet did hair and makeup for me and my mum on my wedding day in Worcester in September having been recommended to me through a colleague. She was a dream to have around on the morning and had been really patient and happy to work with us on our ideas during the trial. A few weeks before the wedding I decided to change my hair and Harriet was really supportive and squeezed me in for an extra hair trial at short notice. She uses lovely products and the whole look stayed put all day and well into the wee hours! Couldn’t recommend her highly enough xx

Harriet was simply the best!
Harriet did such a fantastic job on my hair and make up for my wedding. I rarely wear make up from day to day so I really wanted a natural look; Harriet knew exactly what to do. She absolutely perfected my look! She made me feel at ease and kept me calm for my big day. I couldn't recommend her highly enough!

Absolutely fantastic!
Harriet is brilliant. From helping me try out all of the looks so I could settle on the perfect one, to calming me down on the day! She’s so professional but also so friendly. Nothing is too much either, she’s so adaptable and you really feel like she’d do anything to make you feel exceptional. I felt like a princess on my day. I recvommend her to everybody!

Beautiful Hair & Makeup for my Wedding Day
I booked Harriet after reading glowing recommendations and I’m so glad that I did. Harriet did my hair and makeup at both my hair and makeup trial (and engagement shoot!) and my wedding day. She is a wonderfully friendly, professional and down to earth person and she helped to create a gorgeous look for myself and my mum, sister and niece for my wedding day. She was great at communicating and was open to last minute changes and works amazingly well under pressure. Thank you so much for all of your hard work and the beautiful looks that you created for our wedding. I can’t wait to see the professional photos

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

I like to meet the bride at least a couple of months before the big (groom isn't normally involved with this part of the wedding planning). We sit down together and discuss the theme/colours/style of the wedding and talk about how to best suit the hair and makeup to work with these things. We also talk about the dress and accessories in making this decision as well. After discussing this as well as the looks for the rest of the bridal party I would sit down and do a trial run on the chosen look. When finished the bride gets the chance to tweak anything she's not happy with. I will take some photos to document what we achieve so that i can remember the finished look on the day. I then don't see the bride until the day of the wedding unless she chooses to do a second trial. On the wedding day I contribute to keeping the bridal party calm and relaxed and organized, making sure everyone is ready on time. I usually like to stay right until the end when it's time to leave to go to the ceremony, just in case there are any final tweaks to do before you all walk down the aisle.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

One bride had sewn some material into the underside of her dress that was part of her mums dress she had picked out to wear on the wedding day, but who had unfortunately passed away only months before the wedding.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Drink plenty of water in the lead up to the wedding to keep it hydrated and clear of blemishes.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

I love getting to be part of this special day for people, there's a real sense of love and happiness around everyone and I get to be involved in that.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

The morning of the wedding can be a very busy and chaotic time for the bride, so I like to keep her slightly aside from everyone whilst I do her hair and makeup. I like to talk to her about lots of things that aren't to do with the wedding. If she needs reassuring then that is what I do, if she needs quiet time, that is what I give her. I am good at reading the mood of each of my brides and focus my energy on making sure to be there for her no matter what.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I went to Bordeaux in France to do a party of 9! It was a very early start and was a very busy day doing hair and makeup for each girl by myself...but!! There was the most amazing energy the whole morning, everyone was laughing and having fun and the girls were all gorgeous, it was a very special day to be a part of.

What do you love most about your job?

I would always suggest having a blotting powder with them, just in case they get tend to get shiny when warm and anxious. I would also suggest they keep a lipgloss with them to reapply after meals or before photos just in case! Great things to get your bridesmaids to look after! But the idea behind my hair and makeup is that you won't have to worry about it!

What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?

Natural sophisticated contemporary comfortable stylish

How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?

Take time to enjoy the little things when planning, it goes so quickly and before you know it it's all over. Relax and enjoy the adventure!

What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?

I pride myself on offering a very reliable and confident service, ensuring my bridal party is relaxed and happy throughout the entire experience.
