Vivien is both a consummate professional and an exceptionally talented make-up artist. Even though she came highly recommended by several other brides, I was still completely overwhelmed by the amazing job she did. From my first trial up until my wedding day, Vivien was absolutely fantastic - so creative, helpful and flexible. She created the perfect look for me and the rest of the wedding party and I honestly couldn't have been happier with the results. The make-up lasted all day and looks truly stunning in the photographs. I have since been inundated with request to pass on Vivien's contact details.
Despite the fact that Vivien has worked with major celebrities, she is one of the most grounded and easy-going people I have ever met, creating a calm and relaxed atmosphere as she works. Since my wedding, Vivien is my 'go to' make-up artist for any special occasion. I simply cannot praise Vivien's professionalism and exceptional talent highly enough.
Every bride wants to look amazing on her wedding day - but still look like herself. She also wants to enjoy every moment of her day. I knew the first time I met Viv that I wanted her to do my Bridal make-up for me. She helped me plan my timing, put all of us at our ease and laughed along with us all morning. She made all of us look and feel brilliant and I couldn't recommend her enough for an bride to be, or for anytime you want that extra special make-up.
Not only was our makeup really beautiful, it was so natural that everyone just looked like an amazing version of themselves, not fake or overly made up. As the bride, I felt a million dollars and I know that both bridesmaids were delighted. I can honestly say that my Mam was glowing. We have a close up photo of her and she looks 20 years younger!
Not only is Vivien's work as a makeup artist flawless but her presence on the morning, of what can be fairly hectic, was so chilled and easy
I had kept fairly composed until Vivien gave me one final touch up before walking up the aisle and said 'remember everyone is here because they love you!'. That's when the wobbly chin started!
I consider myself so so lucky to have had Vivien do our makeup and wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone. In fact, at the early stages of wedding planning Vivien was living in the States and I'd everything crossed that she'd be home in time!
Vivien came highly recommended by a friend of mine and I was delighted to hear that she was available on my wedding day to do the make-up for my bridesmaids, my Mam and I. We were all delighted with the end result which was a very natural finish. This was exactly what I was looking for. We really enjoyed having Vivien as part of the whole experience on the morning of the wedding - she is very calm, down-to-earth and seems used to working in busy environments.
Vivien has a natural flair for what she does. She is a very experienced professional and I regard her as an excellent makeup artist. She is a real pro at applying false lashes (something I can never do myself) and I would recommend her for any bridal party or for any other special occasion. You really can't go wrong!
