Here’s what my clients say:

“I make films and do photo shoots for a living. I need to have a creative team that I can rely on. Claudia is one of those rare people who can style hair and do make up quickly, precisely and artistically. I first booked Claudia for a film production back in 2010 and she has been a talent that I can rely on ever since. Claudia created hair styles from the 1940s for my Hollywood collection and has consistently added value to my photographs. Claudia is dependable and professional.”  Damien Lovegrove
“Hi Claudia!  Thank you so so much for everything on the wedding day as I’ve not been around much until now.  You were absolutely amazing – I loved my makeup and felt super confident all day and the girls all looked so so beautiful! I was seriously impressed with the way you got through everything so calmly and efficiently given the number of us there were, which really helped me to remain (relatively) chilled throughout.. ” Jen – Bride August 2018
“Thank you so much for everything Claudia! We had such a wonderful experience with you and felt so special and dressed for this very important day! We certainly wouldn’t have wanted to do it without you! 
Much love
Jayne, Amber and Ash” – Groom party July 2018

“Hi Claudia, Just wanted to thank you again for making me look so great on my wedding day! My mom and sister looked stunning, natural but glammed up, EXACTLY what we hoped for. You were so professional and I would happily recommend you to anyone I know getting married. Do you travel near London or do you say in Bath/Bristol area? Thanks again Crystal ” – Bride May 2018

“I must say a big huge thank you for everything you did on the wedding day (and before), you were amazing and a complete star!! Gemma was fab too, please pass on my and my bridesmaids thank yous to her. The only small downside with Orchardleigh is the turnover time between weddings, sorry that it became a bit frantic, you did so well at staying calm and doing a great job.

We all got loads of lovely compliments.  Plus Helen and I were up until 4am, the make-up and hair was still going strong!! I want to do it all over again lol.

I have attached a few (sorry tried to be selective but too many good shots though) pictures to show what a fantastic job you did, it was all exactly how I envisioned, thank you.

Best wishes,  Holly ” –  Bride August 2017

“I booked Claudia for my wedding after experiencing her work for an engagement party and being really impressed with her skills for both hair and make up. I could not have been more pleased she made the day even more wonderful with her work nothing was too much trouble she calmly transformed myself and 3 other girls with her great talent. Thank you Claudia for your great work we had so many compliments from guests and even the bridegroom!!

Wishing you well in all you do x” Diane Keser – Bride April 2017

“Claudia and her assistant did the make up and hair for my wedding in July 2016. She did the most amazing job juggling a nervous bride; a huge party of six bridesmaids; a mother of the bride and a grandmother, all within the few hours we had before the midday wedding! My hair and make up was exactly what I had hoped it would be, and Claudia took the greatest care to make sure it was absolutely perfect. I couldn’t have asked for a better, calmer and more competent lady to have handled this part of my special day. Thank you, Claudia!” Tori  – Bride August 2016

“I worked with the amazing Claudia on a photoshoot the other day. She came to my home, arrived very well prepared and created a stunning look for me for the days shoots. She is super friendly, down to earth, very professional to work with and has the most fantastic makeup skills to transform you from a bare faced mess into a gorgeous looking model!  Very highly recommended and I hope we work together many times during 2015!”  Helen Dias x

“I was recommended Claudia by another body artist and wasn’t disappointed! Pre-shoot communication was perfect, clear and direct. She has an amazing amount of patience and drive for perfection in her work. She is professional, talented, friendly and easy to work with, I would definitely recommend her and hope to work with her again in the future. Thank you! “
Alias, Cosplayer September 2014

“Hi Claudia,

Thank you so much for everything yesterday, I felt wonderful. The day went perfectly, I will forward you some pictures when we get them.” Sarah Bridge – June 2014

 “The make-up looks fantastic, and I didn’t have to do any retouching on pretty much all of them! “
Dan Pearce – photographer for Anusha Boutique 2014 collection.

“Claudia did my make up for a photoshoot. Excellent pre-shoot communication and turned up on time with a suitcase full of top brand make-up. She is a very skilled make up artist and did a wonderful job with my hair and make up. It looked gorgeous! She is very professional and puts everything in to her work. I hope to work with her again in the future and am looking forward to seeing the final results from today’s shoot. If your looking for an enthusiastic, talented and friendly make up artist then Claudia is the one to work with! Thank you so much for today! x Highly recommended.” Nadine, model – October 2013

“I worked with Claudia on a nudes workshop and all i can say is that this talented lady is more than an MUA. Claudia checked i was okay, not too cold, fed and watered throughout the day – she is one of the most caring MUA’s I have worked with and i learned so much from her regarding make up too. My hair and make-up looked gorgeous, and the tweaks seemed effortless for Claudia as she worked quickly to adjust my style. I can understand why Claudia has a busy schedule and is very sought after – her work is perfect, her attitude is very professional and she is such a wonderfully friendly person. I am hoping that we get to work together time and time again, even as a model i know how difficult it is to find such a professional, organised and wonderful MUA.” Camilla-Rose model – July 2013.

“I worked with Claudia on a recent photography workshop with Camilla Rose and Damien Lovegrove. Claudia was on hand to assist Camilla throughout the day, and did a wonderful job of the makeup. Highly recommended from me ” Michael Lait Photographer – July 2013

“I was shocked at the amazing transformation, and couldn’t believe how good I looked. I have felt so much more confident ever since.” Lisa Cumberland, Makeover in Brand New You Magazine.

“Thank you for your help. You helped to put us at ease and all went very smoothly.” Amanda Robinson, Editor Origin Publishing Ltd.

“You made everyone look beautiful and helped to make the day even more special you certainly made me feel more confident about myself.” Jen Hobbs – Mother of bride

“Thank you so much for your time and styling skills! I’ve been so pleased and will definitely recommend you to everyone.” Hannah and The Gala Band.

“I met Claudia when she did my make-up on a photo shot I had received from my friends as a birthday gift. I was delighted with the make-up she had done. I haven’t really been to an occasion when I needed my make-up done again until I decided to get married two years later! The first person I thought of was Claudia and tracked her down through the studio that did my photographs. Claudia did a trial session first, with her excellent knowledge of make-up she was a fantastic help. I have also never seen such kit and equipment, Claudia had every type and colour of make-up and only used the top brands like Mac (one of my personal favourites). I wouldn’t recommend anyone else.” Mags Bainbridge – Bride 

“Thank you so much for making me look so glamorous on my wedding day! The make-up was so fantastic.” Sue Daniels – Bride
