About Claire


I live in Ponteland, Northumberland with my two precious children Owen and Grace and our (not so friendly) cat Millie. I enjoy nothing more than being surrounded by nature, if I get the chance I drag my gorgeous Fiancé Paul out walking, we have some favourite haunts, the Lakes, Bolam Lake and Paul’s beautiful village Wark to name a few. I love horses, have done so since being a pony mad little girl! Days ‘in and out’ with the kids are just the best – I love being Mummy.
My journey to become a full time hair and makeup artist started not so long ag0, when back in 2018 I took a leap of faith and decided to start planning how to leave my 9-5 corporate estate agency position.
With the dream of setting up my very own Bridal Hair And Makeup business. I was consumed with desire to do more, something I felt passionate about, a job that gave me freedom and that I was incredibly proud of. I threw everything into trusting in myself, my ability and my journey and the rest they say is history. I have an amazing multi award winning business which is flourishing, I wake up everyday and can’t wait to get to work!
I love everything about my job, nothing pleases me more than meeting you all. Your Wedding Day is the biggest day of your life and I can’t describe just how amazing it feels to be chosen by you to share such a special moment. Working together to create your dream bridal look is just the BEST! I make sure you and your wedding party have an amazing experience right from our very first contact up to the big day itself. I’m super organised, you won’t feel rushed during your preparations. I like to have everyone really an hour before you need to be so there’s time for photos and those last precious moments as a Miss – a wedding experience filled with love and lots of laughter.
My diary is now booked up not just months, but years in advance and I am every ready, with my happy, smiling face and an ever growing kit full of cruelty free and vegan friendly hair and makeup products. I am a true professional, with high standards (the remains of my corporate management background) providing a service to my clients that they will fondly remember is at the heart of my business.
My makeup style is modern,  natural, effortless and timeless. Glowing, flawless skin has become my signature style and I believe hair should be styled softly and not ‘stuck’ in place with heavy product. Think a fresh, polished, modern style! I want you to feel that you have invested in a makeup artist you trust and feel safe with and that you walk down the aisle feeling on top of the world and the very best version of you.

Can I arrange to meet you before I book?

Yes – I love meeting my Brides and hearing all about their wedding plans. Zoom/video call is the perfect way for us to do this. I’m always happy to arrange a call!

Can I book in for a trial?

It’s very rare that brides want to come in for a trial prior to securing their date with me. If this is something that’s important to you, please just ask. I’ll always try to accommodate you.

Are their different payment options?

I’m happy for you to pay your balance off in monthly installments but the booking fee payment must be paid in full at the time of booking to secure your date.

Everywhere! We cover the whole of the UK and are happy to travel abroad for destination weddings.
We may require an overnight stay on locations over 2 hours away depending on the start time on your Wedding Day.

Can I add to my booking? I'm not sure how many people are wanting to book in for hair and makeup yet?

Absolutely! Securing your date is the most important thing as my diary fills up really quickly. I’m happy to add to your booking up to 60 days before your Wedding date.

What happens if you are poorly and not able to make it on my wedding day?

Try not to worry, in the event of me being unable to attend your wedding date my amazing team will step in.

Do you only use cruelty free products?

Whenever possible yes, I feel really passionate about clean, ethical beauty and using cruelty free products is at the heart of my business. Vegan products available on request.

Which brands do you use?

Ooohhh….so many! I’m addicted to buying makeup. Some of my favourite brands are Charlotte Tilbury, Milk, Becca, Bare Minerals, Face Atelier, LimeLife by Alcone, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Hourglass, Pixi, IT and so many more!

I have sensitive skin, are you still able to help me?

Yes, my kit contains products for all skin types.

I'm thinking about having a spray tan for my wedding day, how will this affect things?

I’d definitely recommend having a spray tan for your trial too. This will ensure that the shades and products we use perfectly match your skin tone.

Why Vegan and Cruelty Free?

Animal testing in the cosmetics industry is cruel and unnecessary. That is why I have chosen to use makeup and skincare products which are cruelty free wherever possible.

I feel we have been duped by some of the big names in beauty over the years into thinking their products were actually ‘good for us’. I now realise that this is most certainly not the case!

Many of the staples you trust for their beauty benefits are harbouring nasty ingredients that can actually cause us harm. We now know that cumulative expose to toxins is dangerous. Its a shocking statistic that the average woman wears over 500 chemicals a day !

You can rest assured the products I use not only give amazing results, they are also a treat for your skin. I am really passionate about limiting mine and my clients exposure to harmful chemicals and toxins, thankfully lots of my favourite brands feel the same way.

The vast majority of our products are 100% cruelty free. Many of them are also Vegan. 

If you would like the products we use for your services to be 100% Vegan just ask, we are happy to do this.
