Colin and Claire’s Wedding Day. 30.12.11.

Thank you Claire for a lovely calm, joyful morning at the Malmaison Hotel, London. Nothing like a small glass of sparkles to calm the nerves, a relaxing make up and stunning hairdo to set you both on your way onto the double decker bus to Marylebone registry office! Congratulations!

Hi Christina,

I just wanted to drop you a note to say a big thank you for the wonderful job you did on my hair and make up for our wedding on the 30th December. 

Also, thanks for recommending the cheeky glass of prosecco to calm the pre-wedding nerves, it really helped!   We had such a memorable day, apart from the grotty weather and have just received our photo’s of which I’ve attached a couple for you to see.
Everyone has commented on how great my hair looked and I was so pleased with how it looked too.
Hope you had a good New Year!
Kind Regards
Claire Saxon (Blades)

Vitamin Enriched Face Base.

Just wanted to share this product with you all. Its a lovely, light, natural feeling primer  from Bobbi Brown. Its enriched with shea butter, carrot and  Vitamins A and C.

Its actually for the whole face, but used under my eyes in a makeover ( as a primer) and its gorgeous! I like it as it feels like you have nothing on your face, but its extra protection for the harsh winter days.


Delighted and excited to have been nominated and SHORTLISTED  for  ‘London and the South East’  for the above award. Thank you to all the lovely Brides who voted for me, I have so enjoyed working with you all.

Looking forward to the Finals Awards at the Glittering Cafe De Paris in January!


    Lovely to see our work from the Vintage 1940′s Bridal Shoot in this magazine.. Marie Hayward’s sublime face, Carolanne Armstrong’s gorgeous make up, Anna Rosell’s stunning photography and Gayle’s ( BloomingGayles) totally lush, large red bloom in Marie’s hair…. styled by me!


Tara and Tims Wedding December 3rd 2011. Buxted Park Hotel, Sussex.

Arriving in the beautiful Queen Mary Suite at the Buxted Park Hotel, Tara and I settled into the luxurious space for her and her 4 Bridesmaids for the wedding morning preparations. I created a stunning make up ( Laura Mercier) and Vintage Hairstyle ( with extensions, ssshh!!) with a sweet headpiece and veil over one eye, all photograhed by the fantastically talented and smiley Danni Beach. :-)

Watch this space for photos!

Thanks to Amber, my assistant for the morning, who styled the bridesmaids hair beautifully.
