About Lauren Wheeler
Hey I'm Lauren,
I am hair and makeup artist based in the Warwickshire countryside. I have mastered the art of being the perfect calming, relaxing energy that brides need on their wedding mornings and enjoyed over 1000 weddings during my career to date.
I pride myself on being 'different' from the rest in that I am about naturally enhancing the gorgeous features you already have. I'm not the artist that will do heavy contouring or all slicked back, every hair in places looks. Think more beachy waves, than hollywood glam. Although I can very much appreciate that style as well and can recommend other artists that have nailed that style.
I started painting faces in 2011 + styling hair in 2014 and quickly became very established and extremely highly sought after with the business growing so rapidly that only 4 years after setting up shop I was expanding to an incredibly talented Pro Team of over 25 artists.

I also feel very honoured to be a recommended supplier for gorgeous venues such as Caswell House, Blackwell Grange, Cowley Manor, Primrose Hill Farm, The Tythe Barn and many many more. I've had the opportunity to work at prestigious venues Aynhoe Park, Hedsor House, Le Manoir aux Quait'Saisons, Claridges & Soho Farmhouse.
Outside of weddings I've had my work featured in DeVour Magazine + A-Magazine and worked on 2 AX Paris TV Adverts that were featured on ITV2 & E4. I've worked with a handful of brands for private events including Jimmy Choo + Bicester Village. I've also had some of my real weddings & shoots published on prestigious industry blogs + magazines including Love My Dress, Style & The Bride, Whimsical Wonderland Weddings, Festival Brides, Rock My Wedding + Your Bucks, Berks & Oxon Wedding Magazine.
Finally, I have been super super lucky that my brides have entrusted my skills enough to fly me across the globe in order to style them for their wedding days to gorgeous destinations like Rome, Vilamoura, The Outer Hebrides, Singapore, Puglia, Champagne, Tuscany, Crete + Copenhagen. Grateful beyond belief.
