I am so happy that I found Niki for my wedding makeup. I was really pleased with my look and received a lot of compliments on it throughout the day. Niki made me feel totally comfortable both at my trial and on the day, and I had complete confidence in her throughout the whole process. Highly recommended.
When Niki arrived on my wedding day, I felt instantly calm with her professional, tranquil manner. Niki made me look how I always dreamed of on my wedding day, a beautiful natural look that enhanced my features. I wanted Niki to create a very simple no fuss chignon and it looked beautiful, exactly what I wanted. She also had the hard task of creating hairstyles on two little fidgety flower girls, which looked and stayed amzing despite them running around all day. I would so highly recommend Niki to do anyone's hair and makeup for whatever the occassion. She is a true Professional and does exactly what you ask her to.
Niki was fabulous on our wedding day and felt part of the whole day.. The bridesmaids, mother of the bride and I (the bride) all had makeup by Niki on the big day. Niki was able to make us all look our best with individual looks to suit us. Niki was a calm, fun part of our getting ready time on the wedding morning. I would not hesitate to book Niki.
I had an excellent one-on-one make up lesson, and learnt great make up skills for every occasion. I have tried out all of my techniques and really enjoyed the lesson. Thank you very much Niki for giving such great, professional advise- I would love another lesson in the future!
Niki was really warm putting me at ease and discussing what I was after in great detail, then advising me, but also really listening to the look I was after for my wedding in August. The end result was perfect. Understated, elegant, water proof (from tears) and held well into the evening. I'd definitely use her again!
Nikki was recommended to me by the wedding planning department of St Michaels in St Albans and also came up first on Google when I searched for make up artists in Hertfordshire! I emailed Nikki an enquiry through her website and she came back to me within 24 hours which was great (I emailed others that took almost a week to come back!). I booked Nikki over the phone for hair and make up for my wedding party and had a make up trial at my home a few weeks later. My wedding party was now a week ago and I just wanted to write a big thank you to Nikki... I looked like me but 'better' and had lots of compliments. Nikki is very talented, friendly, professional, punctual, efficient, knowledgeable and well stocked with all the best brands. It was a pleasure to meet Nikki and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her or book her again for any other special occasions - thank you again Nikki,
Niki is wonderful, so lovely, warming and welcoming. The trial at her home set the tone for the make up look I wanted on the day, and she altered things as I wanted because what I initially thought would suit me really didn't. So accomodating and helpful with tips on what to buy / use before the big day. I have never looked so flawless in my life and I have acne scarring and pigmentation. This woman is a genius. Also my bridesmaids, who both hated the thought of having their faces touched and done up by someone else, were both at ease with your calming presence and absolutely loved their make up. My sister never wears makeup and finds it hard to pick anything due to her red hair and fair skin but you matched her perfectly on the day without even needing a trial, she said she's never felt so pretty!!!
I just personally wanted to say a massive thank you for doing my makeup on our wedding day. Your calming presence in the morning was just what I needed and your advice in between my trial and the big day was so appreciated! I cannot praise the end results enough, you made me feel so beautiful but still like myself. I still looked fresh after a night of partying with the band and being spun around within an inch of my life on our finale song… and not a single eyelash fell off!
I’m so pleased I found Niki,not only was her make-up and hair incredible,she was lovely and a pleasure to be around. Couldn’t have been happier! Wonderful service, I can’t recommend Niki highly enough!
My wedding was in Sept 2014 and I chose Niki to do my makeup after reading some good reviews online, and I am so happy that I did! Niki gave a wonderful, professional service and made me and my bridesmaid look stunning on the day. I initially had a trial with Niki where we discussed what I wanted for my wedding. Niki took all my likes and dislikes on board and talked me through every detail to create a look I wanted. After the trial I had some changes that I needed to incorporate, so I emailed Niki with the requirements and images to explain I wanted. I was a little worried at first because we didn't have another trial, so the first time I would see the finished look would be on my wedding day. I should not have worried at all, Niki created a look that could not have been more perfect!! Not only that but Niki also was a great support in the run up to the day - with all the stress that most brides go through in the days and weeks before the wedding, breakouts are common. I was no exception, and I messaged Niki in a panic the day before my wedding with a plea for help. Niki was amazing, she replied so quickly with great recommendations on some treatments to use. On top of that she was also unwell, but still made the effort to help me when I needed it. On the day Niki did such a great job that I should not have worried. Thank you Niki for providing a faultless, professional and friendly service and making me feel like the bride I wanted to be!!
In short Niki is exceptionally good at her craft, professional, very well organised and to top it all off she's a lovely lady. I had no idea what to do when it came to booking the make-up artist for my wedding so initially contacted someone who had done my cousins. This person then failed to respond to any emails for 2 months so I decided to look elsewhere. I googled 'Wedding make up Hertfordshire' and found Niki. I liked the ease and simplicity of her website, and surely someone who has a BA hons would know what they were doing? I contacted Niki by email and she responded quickly and professionally. As I had me and 4 others requiring make up and hair Niki kindly put me in touch with a hair artist also. We arranged a trial so I went to Niki's house to meet her and the hair artist. She instantly made me feel at home and very welcomed. I am very comfortable in make up and wear it daily for work but Niki seemed to transform me! My eyes looked beautiful. After the trial Niki emailed me to advise the shade of lipstick she used should I want to buy one - of course!! Ok ok I'm waffling, onto Oct 2013 the wedding day... I received an email a few days before the wedding to confirm who was being made up and at what time, and also when she would arrive. Niki arrived bright and early and full of smiles and instantly made us all feel comfortable. She made up 3 bridesmaids, Mother of the Bride and Myself. We all looked stunning. Our make up lasted long into the evening despite lots of kisses on the cheek of congratulations I still had foundation intact for the first dance! I can't recommend her enough. Thanks for making me beautiful xxxxx
Having tried two previous make-up artists I really wasn't happy with the end result. I either looked too made-up or just too old! Anyway, I found Niki online and visited her at home for a make-up trial. She just totally got it! Colours, the look, everything! She's also a really lovely person! On the day of my wedding (26th Sept 2013) she was calm, totally professional and just went to work on me! My make- up was absolutely perfect! It is such an important part of you to get right, for photographs if nothing else! I felt just amazing. Thank you Niki! If you do nothing else, have Niki do your make up!!x.
Niki did my wedding make up for me, my and mum and bridesmaids on my wedding day at the end of June. From start to finish Niki was fantastic! I had a make-up trial done with Niki before the wedding day and loved it! Niki knew exactly what I wanted and used great products to compliment my skin. Having very oily skin I was concerned about my make up lasting all day and night but Niki used the right makeup products on me and my skin has never been so flawless and shine free!! We got married outside and the weather was very hot but my make up didn't slide off, it stayed put!! I loved it! Niki offers a very friendly and professional service and I would definitely recommend her to every bride! Thank you so much Niki!!! x
I hired Niki to do my wedding make up three weeks ago at my wedding in Spain. She had a daunting task of doing hair & make up for nine bridesmaids as well as myself on the day and she delivered exceptionally. She was calm and professional throughout the day. I am not normally a make-up person so I wanted to ensure my wedding make up was as natural as possible without being too blend. Also, I had a chinese ceremony for part of the wedding so she had to do two hairstyles for me. The make-up and hair were perfect and I would highly recommend her in general.

It is my absolute pleasure to write about the incredibly talented makeup artist, Niki Lawrence. Niki was the first person I emailed to inquire about doing my bridal make-up AND the makeup of all my bridesmaids! I am so glad she emailed back and said that she was free on my wedding day. Niki is such a professional but more importantly such a delight! My trial went so smoothly, she listened to me talk about how I usually do my face up and then proceeded to work her magic... Picking colours, covering my scars, highlighting my favourite facial features and introduced me to the one, the all important... Yes MY NUDE lippy! That is no easy task! She kept me incredibly calm whilst sitting in her chair on the morning of my big day and she spent the rest of the morning, making up my fav girls (who all traveled from Canada) and even managed to sneak in my no-fuss mom and auntie, as if she wasn't busy enough! My bridesmaids were so grateful to her. They felt incredibly beautiful as she turned each one of them into radiant ladies ready for a lovely spring affair! From all of us, Niki we Thank you and Good Luck in the future!
