Makeup by Lauren Poole

I am a fully qualified makeup artist specialising in bridal and photographic makeup. Although my first love (other than my husband and children!) is working with my brides, I am also the beauty feature writer for Matrimony Magazine and work on a large number of bridal shoots every year for well known bridal publications.

Having got married just over ten years ago I know that how you feel on your wedding day is a memory that will last forever. To ensure that as my brides walk down the aisle they have a sense of elegance, radiance and confidence that will last long after the day itself, I work very closely with all of my clients to ensure that we achieve their perfect bridal look.

At your bridal trial we will work together to create the bridal vision you have in your head and in the weeks and months before your wedding I will liaise with you, your hair stylist, your photographer, your event planner (and anyone else you have on board) to make sure that everything runs to your schedule in the hours before you say ‘I do’.

On the day itself, I will bring the makeup studio to you, wherever you choose to be. Not only fully supplied with all the makeup you could wish for, but with a few added extras too… just in case! (Sewing a bride into her dress, or, reattaching a veil is certainly not unusual).


Thanks for putting up with me Lauren! Having visited a number of MUA's for different occasions, choosing the right MUA for my wedding was really important to me. Having had two trials with you leading up to the wedding I felt completely confident in the look we achieved (one trial was probably enough, but I'm a bit fussy). You are really accommodating and worked to achieve the exact look I was wanting - nothing was too much trouble. You settled my nerves and gave me complete assurance and faith in your work.Rachel
You are amazing. I loved my wedding make up as well as the bridesmaids. You worked so well with my mum and mother in law's requests and added a little bit of sparkle to my flower girl. You helped keep my wedding morning so relaxed. You knew what worked well for each person in my party, especially as we were not all big make up wearers. I would highly recommend you!! Thanks again.Chelsey
I just wanted to thank you so much for doing such an amazing job for myself and my sisters. You made us all look amazing and the makeup looked as brilliant at the end of the day as it did from the moment you did it. I am so grateful and thankful to you for meeting with me beforehand, travelling up on the day and being so incredible with everything. I know my mum and sisters felt and looked amazing too! Thanks so much again, you were amazing!Charlie
