Wow where do I start… I was recommended Abbie by a friend and from the moment we spoke I felt at ease so I knew instantly I wanted her to do my bridal make up, she talked me through what to expect on the day and how everything would work, I explained how I usually have my make up and Abbie listened to every minor detail. Unfortunately my wedding was postponed due to COVID but Abbie was able to accommodate our new date and she was always checking in on me throughout the year to check everything was ok, she really did go above and beyond! When I went for my trial we spoke in more detail about my likes and dislikes and during the trial Abbie told me about the products she was using and explained everything to me, I walked away from my trial so happy and so excited for my Wedding day, my make up looked perfect and there was nothing I wanted to change!
Onto the big day…Abbie & Georgie arrived at the venue and they both worked so well together to do everyone’s make up, to my mum, my step mum, my mother in law, my bridesmaids and myself every single one of us looked absolutely beautiful! I could see how happy everyone was with their make up and that made me happy too, the girls catered to everyone’s individual needs and made sure that everyone felt comfortable on the day. Unfortunately my Honeymoon got cancelled on the Wedding morning so it was no longer about just being a make up artist it was about being an emotional support for me too. Everyone could see how gutted I was and Abbie and Georgie really did help me overcome these emotions on the day with their encouraging and supporting words, they managed to keep me calm so I was able to sort my Honeymoon out for the third time during my make up. Abbie was so calm and relaxed whilst doing my make up so this allowed me to also relax and enjoy the moment- thank you so much for being more than just make up artists.
Everyone said how well their make up lasted on the day, and I can speak for myself mine did not budge at all. I danced the night away and got a bit sweaty, I cried several tears and I still looked flawless by the end of the night. I had so many compliments and I really did look amazing, thank you so much to Abbie for making me look like a princess on the day and to both of you for making my bride tribe look absolutely beautiful too. I cannot recommend you enough, you are so much more than just make up artists and are absolutely amazing at what you do! ❤️

I had the pleasure of Abbie doing my make up for my special day.
As someone who wears minimal makeup I decided to have a trial. Abbie listened to all my likes & dislikes, she talked through products, colours & gave her professional advice while keeping my wishes in mind. We played around with lipstick colours & even after my trial I still changed my mind!
On the day, Abbie was fab. She created looks on my bridal party to suit each individual skin type but tying them all in together. Together we adapted my trial to give me ‘my perfect look’ that I felt confident & comfortable in.
It lasted all day & through many photos in the direct sunlight, bad dancing & the tears!
As a bride, I felt the best me & I think that was the most important bit, to feel the best version of me & I absolutely did!
Abbie you are truly amazing!!
Throughout the whole process you were attentive and thoughtful. From the enquiry to booking through to trials and the wedding day.
Nothing was ever too much trouble and you took any stress and worry away.
You made us all feel like a million dollars but I always knew you would!
Thank you I couldn’t have asked for more. Your calm attitude and organised ways meant that bridal prep in the morning was relaxed and enjoyable, we got to spent the morning sipping fizz whilst you ran around after us making us look our very best alongside our hairdresser.
Your talent and passion shines through every time I see you.
Thank you for everything, I felt amazing on our special day and it lasted all day and into the night.
A friend I have gained in the madness of wedding planning!
I could not fault Abbie from the moment I messaged her to tell her my date of my wedding and having my fingers crossed that she was available, right until I walked down the aisle 13 months later!
As soon as I was engaged I knew I wanted Abbie and her team to do my makeup after using Luxe for many years since it began.
Luxe was AMAZING at making me feel at ease and special during my makeup trial with my chief bridesmaid. Discussing the day, getting excited and having your makeup done whilst having a bottle of prosecco.
What could be better?
Abbie, as per, got it spot on first try and I knew I was going to love the make up on the day.
The morning of the wedding was so laid back and lovely with all my bridesmaids getting ready and a huge part of that was down to the Luxe team giving us the ultimate glow up!
Thank you so much for making this brides day and being so easy and amazing from start to finish. Xx
