    Hiya!



    I am from Derby but getting married in Notts. I can definately recommend my hair stylist and make up artist. They run separate businesses but are friends so work very well together. I was a BM a few weeks ago and they did my hair and make up then.xx



    Rochelle O Brien Make up www.rochelleobrien.co.uk



    Melanie Garney Hairdresser

    They both have galleries on their websites x

    p.s they both cover Derby/Notts/Leicestershire etc x
  • I was going to say that both these girls have been recommended to me. I'd also suggest checking the Nottingham make-up stands. I know the Laura Mercier make-up girls do freestyle and you can have loads of trials in the shop.

    Are you at Norwood Park?
  • Thank you! Had a look at their websites, and they look good, so definitely a possibility.



    Nope, not norwood park, wedding at Southwell Minster and reception at The Redhouse, Kelham,



    Makeup stands- like in department stores? Cool, i'll check it out if I'm in Nottingham. Live in West Yorks, so a trip to Notts in like gold dust



    Cheers ladies!

    Hi,



    I got married a week ago today and can recommend my hair stylist, Charlotte Wesson. She specialises in wedding hair and did an amazing job.



    I went for a trial originally and she tried loads of styles and was really quick aswell, she did as many different looks as I wanted, we took loads of pictures so I could then go away and think about what I like the most. I didn't have to confirm the final style until the day, and even text her when I saw something I loved on Strictly come dancing, and she switched channels she switched what she was watching to check it out - how's that for dedication. She lives in Colsterworth, just off the A1 but will travel and is well worth it!



    On the day she was doing mine and a bridesmaid and even though it wasn't planned she ended up doing my 5-yr old flower girls aswell (she suddenly decided she wanted curls after having seen the 'big girls' hair'). Charlotte is very reaxed and is the sort of person you can say if you don't quite like it like that without offending her, she will ensure that it is perfect just the way you want it!!



    I normally have really straight hair, but she did an amazing job and even when I took it out the day after the wedding I wore my curls down as it lasted so well!!



    I haven't got my formal photos back yet, but it you would like to see what she did for me, email me and I'll send you one of the pics I have.

    Good luck finding someone and enjoy the preparations!

  • There is actually someone in Newark named Lisa Precious (she comes up on Google) she seems to be very good and when I spoke to her she sounded lovely and gave me tons of advice! She was also VERY resonably priced, I havent found anyone that cheap yet - Unfortunatly she couldnt do my date so I am now trying to find someone else in the Newark area with only 3 weeks to go!
  • My maid of honour is just starting out doing wedding makeup. She is a rep for Virgin Vie so will be using their products mainly. As a rep she is undertaking bridal makeup training and to try and get more practice and build her clientele up she is offering free makeup trials to anyone in the area, If you then like the trial she can do your makeup on the day for a fee - dependent on where/who/when/what etc!



    She has done my makeup before, and did her first wedding a few months ago. SHe has weddings booked already for this year and more bridal training next month



    If you are interested please reply here or email her direct on [email protected]

    She is based in Lincoln but can travel reasonable distances - i.e Sheffield, Nottingham.



    Let me know if you need any further info!



  • Hey, Just seen this, im having Jemma s

    A make up artist who covers all of the midlands area .

    www.jemmas.co.uk



    she did my best friends wedding, last year .

    this year its my turn - i had my trial 2 months ago with her and was really happy with her work. i know she does get booked up fast as she is very good and is Mac trained and uses alot of mac products and brushes and she is reasonable.



    Anyway thought id share as my best mate had a few trials with diff people and ended up spending lots of money before settling for jemmas make up artistry. xxx

    I had an awful trial with Jemma Swinfield and do NOT reccomend her at all!!



    In the end i used Rochelle O'brien for make up and Melanie Garney for hair and can't reccommend them highly enough, they are brilliant and both lovely! xx
  • so many choices! thank you everyone for your recommendations. slightly confused about Jemma Swinfield, as carleyz highly recommends her and MrsKakey09 said her trial was awful. i guess it's a matter of seeing gallery pictures and trial and error!

  • Is Lisa Precious's style quite gothic?
  • Hi

    I booked Charlotte Wesson for my own wedding after she did hair when I was a bridesmaid.

    She really is lovely and did the most amazing styles for us all.

    I love the pictures in her gallery and what stood out more than any other site I have looked at is the huge variation of hairstyles. She couldn't do enough to give us styles we wanted ane we all felt at ease about telling her any bits we wanted changing with the hair without feeling awkward.

    We all said how our hair was perfect and it was simply lovely to have Charlotte as part of the day.

    Cant recommend her enough xxxx
  • I'll second that about Charlotte Wesson as thats who I'm having for my wedding hair and am so excited that I have actually booked her.

    She recommended two local makeup artists one being Rochelle Obrien as mentioned above who was not available and the other being Paula Tennant who I managed to book.

    No experience of the other ladies mentioned so can't help there.
  • You could try Catherine, www.blush-on.co.uk



    She covers that area and is very good.
  • www.heavenly-hair.co.uk we do hair and makeup and cover most of the eastmidlands.

  • Hmmm you might want to advise your makeup artist if she's going to use other people's work in her gallery and pass it off as her own not to use images that have the original artist's name on them!
