About Lauren Wheeler
I'm a makeup artist and hairstylist based in Oxfordshire. I'm all about chilled vibes and try to make my brides wedding mornings as laid back and calm as possible. Weddings are stressful enough as it is, there's no point in your hair and makeup being so too.
I pride myself on being 'different' from the rest in that I'm all about naturally enhancing the gorgeous features you already have. I'm not about contouring, insta heavy, slick backed, every hair in place looks and if that's you, that's totally cool but then I'm probably not the artist for you.
I've been painting faces since 2012 and styling hair since 2014 and quickly became very established and highly sought after within Oxfordshire. In 2015 I expanded and set up the Lauren Wheeler Pro Team bringing together the areas most talented and awesome artist's to work alongside me. The team is made up of very different talents and within our artist's we can cover all bases.
In 2019, I have started to take a little step back from weddings and only take on a very limited amount of them. It's time to shine the light more on the girls and the incredible talents they all have. I'll match you up with the best suited artist for you if I'm not available.
I've been extremely fortunate to now be a multi award winning artist. To name but a few...

I also feel very honoured to be a recommended supplier for gorgeous venues such as Caswell House, Blackwell Grange, Huntsmill Farm and many more. I've had the opportunity to work at prestigious venues Aynhoe Park & 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 and magazines including Love My Dress, Style & The Bride, Whimsical Wonderland Weddings & 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 and Copenhagen. To say I love my job is an understatement!
