"I used Lovebird Makeup for our wedding in April and couldn't recommend Suzie more.
As I don't wear much makeup I was worried when it came to my wedding, but from the minute I met Suzie I instantly felt relaxed.
She spent the time to get to know me and what I felt comfortable with, and the trial was a brilliant way to look at different options and colours.
On the day, myself, my mum and my bridemaids loved spending the morning with Suzie, everything was super relaxed and organised, and it felt like having a friend there with us. We were all absolutely over the moon with our makeup which lasted perfectly all day!
Thank you for making us all feel flawless, taking fantastic behind the scenes pictures, and for joining in with the wedding excitement."

"From the moment we met I had no doubts that I had picked the right make-up artist.
You were there promptly in arriving despite the early start and worked tirelessly to ensure everyone was done and happy with the end result. I would absolutely recommend you as the no.1 make-up artist. In fact, I have already recommended you to a friend for her daughters wedding."

"I had a trial with someone else before my friends wedding and just hated it. It was too heavy, the lip was wrong, the eye makeup was wrong, it was just not me. So I went on the on a hunt. And it took me ages. Then I found Suzie. And what a beautiful breath of fresh air she was. She was really reasonably priced, willing to do a trial super early due to my past experience, and does natural, not heavy makeup!
I knew I wanted a red lip, Suzie wasn't sure but we tried a natural at my trial and we both knew it was wrong! So we pulled out the trusty Mac Cosmetics Ruby Woo which lasted well all day.
I loved having Suzie with me on the morning. She kept us on time, kept us giggling & generally helped bring the vibe!"

"Just wanted to say a big thank you for doing an amazing job for our make up and my nails for my wedding last week. You were such a calming influence on the morning and everyone complimented me on my make up during the day. Thank you so much again! Will send some photos when we've received the professional ones but I will definately recommend you to anyone who needs make up or nails in the future!"
"Suzie what can I say only that you were amazing. Your calming influence and professionalism is the best. You were there for me 100% when I had a meltdown and I wouldn't of wanted anyone else. Thank you. Everyone commented on the makeup and for that day you made me feel a million dollars and I will NEVER for get that xxx"

"Your makeup was fabulous and such good quality. You gave me the natural look which made me feel really special in myself. Your calm and efficient nature really put me at ease. I am so pleased that I found you and hope we stay in touch."

Some of the weddings I have worked on...
Bridal Trials take place from my home address in Quedgeley. The consultation lasts around an hour and a half. This is to discuss your special day in more detail. Please kindly come along alone to your appointment. My tip is to always think timeless and classically beautiful so photographs don’t date. Good to be in sync with the colour tones of your wedding and flowers. The best bridal makeup look is an even more polished natural version of yourself.It’s always a good idea to wear an outfit or top a similar colour to your dress and if you can organise it, to book your hair trial on the same day to see the overall look together. Do come prepared with makeup pictures you like from Pinterest so I can gage the overall look your hoping to achieve and advise.
