The 2016 Wedding Industry Awards

Getting recognition for doing something you absolutely adore is such a wonderful feeling! I was nominated by one of my brides for the 2016 Wedding Industry Awards a few months ago so I thought I would apply and see how far I could get! The awards for this area cover the whole of the South East (this includes London, Surrey, Sussex and Kent) so I knew the competition would be really tough being amongst some fab MUA’s. I couldn’t believe it but I was shortlisted as a Regional Finalist (thanks to my brides votes and kind words) so myself and my mum went to the awards ceramony to do some networking. Keeping everything crossed that I might win and not go into labour at the same time. Lol!

Unfortunately I didn’t get to be a winner this year, but the ladies that did (I.D. Beauty/Sussex) were so good, it was well deserved.

So here is what it’s all about for me, when my name wasn’t called I didn’t feel sad – I was so excited. I knew that I would now be able to access my incredible testimonials that my brides had given me and I couldn’t wait!!



Here is what they thought about me and my service as a makeup artist on their special day. This is why I  love what I do!…

THANK YOU TO MY KIND AND BEAUTIFUL BRIDES xxx

General Comments (in random order)

Lucy Jayne provided a brilliant service from start to finish. She did a fabulous job of both mine and my bridesmaids makeup on the big day. She was so friendly and really helped me at ease on the morning of the day. I would recommend her to anyone getting married.

Mrs Felicity Candlish (Furness)

Lucy is such an easy person to talk to, when she came to do the make up trials we talked through what I wanted and when she had finished I didn’t want to change a thing! I’m not confident with make up so wear very little, Lucy didn’t go over the top and I felt so beautiful on my wedding day. Lucy was also patient with my mum who is very indecisive about what she wanted and my bridesmaids looked gorgeous. I felt so comfortable with Lucy and she was so knowledge about make up styles & products.

Mrs Louise Hicks (Whiffin)

Lucy was patient and listened to my entire wedding themes and ideas before advising me on make up. She was knowledgable about different looks we could achieve and was willing to trial several options prior to the wedding day to be sure I was happy with my final decision and look. Lucy also helped me find my hair designer too which was another area that I was struggling with so all in all she made the wedding planning process fun and stress free.

Mrs Laura Keeper (Williams)

Lovely Lady, really professional and calming 🙂 had such an amazing day and felt like a beautiful bride. One of my bridesmaids (sister in law – 16) never wore make up before but Lucy was very good with her and she looked stunning. Lucy asked lots of questions and was very keen to give me the exact look I wanted. Thank you Lucy, you really do deserve this x

Mrs Katie Legg (Fleury)

Lucy was vital to the smooth running of my wedding. Calm and collected throughout. I had never had my makeup done by anyone else before my trial and was nervous about someone being able to do my makeup ‘the way I like it’ but lucy listened to the requests of me and my maids perfectly. My makeup stayed looking beautiful all evening, with no touch ups! Thankyou xx

Mrs Jessica Wood

I spent a long time searching for a make up artist online. Lucy Jaynes website and make up artistry instantly appealed to me. Communication with Lucy was prompt and efficient. At my consultation she was patient and really understood the make up that I wanted on my wedding day. On the day, she was a huge calming influence and my makeup looked fabulous. Everyone commented how lovely it looked. It stayed on all day and looks fab in the photos.

Mrs lea Tippett

Lucy completed a trial run of the wedding make up a few weeks before the big day, she took note of what i wanted (to not look completely different but enhance my dire makeup skills) after the trial she took pictures which i could look back on so i could change ideas before the day. For the day Lucy made subtle changes based on my thoughts from the trial and gave me h8nts and tips for make up i could wear every day. Very friendly and always professional

Mrs Amy Hulks (Lucy)

I booked Lucy following recommendation from a friend. Lucy did my makeup as well as my mum and sister. We all have varying skin colours and types and different thoughts of how we wanted to look. Lucy listened to this and along with her advise we were all very pleased with the final outcome. Lucy also provided touch up amounts of makeup to keep us looking great through out the day. Lucy was patient in the mayhem and chaos & all in all very professional I have also recommended her to others since

Lucy was amazing! She really listened to what myself and my bridesmaid wanted. I felt a million dollars and everyone commented! Her prices I felt were fair too. She used great products which lasted for entire day/night. I never needed to re apply anything. You can tell how much passion she has for her work and clearly it reflects in how happy I was on the day! Highly recommend and will always want to book Lucy in the future when I need to feel AMAZING!

Mrs Charlotte Woollett (fennings)

Lucy is a true artist in every form and this is why…. -Lucy is a skilled makeup artist who created the look I wanted using suitable colors and textures for my skin type. -Lucy emphasized all my best features. -She complimented the style of my gown, hairstyle, and the color of my bouquet. -She understands camera techniques, which is key to any bride as photographing well is important on your big day.

Mrs Hannah Crow

I don’t normally wear makeup so her guidance on a look I wasn’t sure I was looking for was excellent. I wore fake eyelashes which I’d never worn before and they were applied so well I didn’t know they were there and they looked amazing. I felt comfortable and at ease in her company. Overall she done a fantastic job and made my day extra special.

Mrs Ceri Donovan

Lucy was an amazing make-up artist. She was prompt and very professional. Myself, my mum and all 3 bridesmaid were soooo happy and impressed with our make-up which stayed on all day without the need to touch the make-up up. Highly recommended.

Mrs Lucy Bird

I am not someone that has a lot of confidence in their looks and really struggle with makeup. I was really worried I would have a make-up artist who made me feel silly or pick up my flaws. But Lucy was the most amazing find. Her laid-back but professional, kind, warm and friendly nature put me completely at ease. She picked out my best features, face mapped my face, was onhand at all times to provide advice and order extra products. She gives me faith in the make-up industry.

Mrs Katy Bryant (Silvester)

Lucy was amazing! Her work is amazing, and she is very professional, I would recommend her to everyone, and I will Carry on using her for when I need my makeup doing 🙂

Mrs Juliette Davis (Aldridge)

Lucy was amazing from start to finish! I had been let down last minute by another artist and LucyJayne did everything she could to accommodate me. The make up trial put me at ease and Lucy took my brief and confidently and bought it to life. On the day, having my make up done was one of the best bits of the day! Lucy was very accommodating and even paused whilst we had a very late breakfast.My make up was even better on the day and was flawless until I took it off. One word…excellent!

Mrs Abigail Cooper (Fox)

I was so impressed by Lucy, She is so professional and I felt in very safe hands. I had not had my makeup done previously so was a little anxious, but Lucy’s lovely friendly and calm nature quickly put me at ease. I have oily skin and I still can’t get over the fact that I did not get shiny, my makeup looked as good at 1am as it did when it was first done. My mum and sister also had their makeup done by Lucy and I have never seen them look so beautiful. I will recommend her to all of my friends!

Mrs sophie southgate

Lucy Jayne did a great job on the day – fitting around hairdressing issues, which in turn made her schedule change but she was very accommodating. The makeup itself on the day was great and stayed put all day. Many people commented on how they liked it as it was very natural. Lucy Jayne is very friendly and makes you feel at ease… Made getting ready an experience in itself. Would high recommend.

Mrs Laura Nichols (Andrews)

Lucy was a god send. so professional and put me at ease on my wedding day. i couldn’t thank her enough. my make up was so natural and she knew exactly what i was after. it looked as perfect at the end of a very busy day as it did when i said i do to my now wonderful husband. so a big thank you Lucy your a star.

Mrs Jackie Hooper (Carter)

I would recommend Lucy Jayne to any brides seeking a talented make up artist who will put them at ease on the day. She isn’t pushy or a big character – just very friendly, personable and adaptable. I wasn’t very good at explaining what I wanted at my trial, and so came away with a look that I wasn’t sure about. However, I communicated these concerns to Lucy who wasn’t offended, and was able to adapt my look on the day to create exactly what I wanted. My make up lasted all day and was perfect.

Lucy had such creativity and flair and understood the look ideas going for right from our first meeting. She was fun to be around, had a great relationship with myself and my wedding party and really helped to make my day even more special. I would recommend her to anybody!

Mrs Sarah Watson (Stanton)

Lucy was an absolute pleasure to work with and be around. She took the time to listen and try out new things in consultation, she made it so exciting for me. She took my vision and took it to the next level, and the end result was beautiful. It was far better than I could have imagined, and stood out in the photos. Lucy was extremely professional at all times. She clearly loves what she does and it is infectious! She worked so well with my hair stylist so that everything worked perfectly.

Mrs Kristy Davies (Harkett)

From the moment I met Lucy, I knew I had made the right choice in having my make up done professionally for the big day. She was so friendly and kind and made me feel so comfortable. I had eczema around my eyes during the trial and Lucy gave advice on products I should be using, luckily this had cleared up in time for the big day. She also gave a helping hand in helping me get into my dress! The make up was beautiful and I got so many compliments throughout the day, I really did feel amazing!

Mrs Liza Blissett (Hackney)

Lucy Jane did a great job with the make up. I heard nothing but compliments from my family and guests. She managed to make me look good but still like myself.

Dr Susanne Schroeder

From initial contact right through to the wedding, Lucy was extremely friendly and professional. I changed my mind slightly on the day from what we went for at the trial and Lucy was so accommodating of this. She was definitely a calming presence on the day! Lucy covered problem areas on my skin flawlessly, she does incredible eye make up and It lasted all day, I absolutely loved it.

Mrs Emily Brushett

Lucy is an exceptionally talented make up artist. She was able to guide me on the look that would suit my face and transformed my look in a beautiful and subtle way. I would recommend her to any bride wanting to look absolutely perfect on their wedding day. Lucy was approachable and extremely patient, exactly what you want as a bride. I have had so many comments on how beautiful my make up was on the day and it lasted the whole day looking as good in the evening as it did in the afternoon.

Mrs Fions Vail (Solly)

Lucy was fantastic, she made me feel like a princess.

Mrs Nikki Taylor-Price

Lucy’s artistry skills are obvious from reviewing her website. Her warm yet calm personality and flexible and passionate approach to her craft left me feeling very well looked after in the preparations and on my big day.

Mrs Caroline Burton

Lucy was booked after my sister in law had her for her wedding. Her service is next to none. She is personable and has a real passion for her field. From day one Lucy understood my vision and was able to bring this to life. She didn’t once influence, merely used her expertise to deliver an extremely high standard service. Lucy worked very closely with my hair dresser to ensure the two elements complimented each other. She made me feel like a princess on my very special day. Thank you!

Mrs Katy Herbert (Shroder)

Lucy was extremely helpful and put me at ease straight from the first time I met her. I don’t wear very much make up at all. So having my make up done for my wedding was extremely scary and daunting but important for me to look nice throughout the day. Lucy and I discussed that the natural look and gave me some options. I had my first trial and I loved the look. On my wedding day Lucy was punctual and made me feel very relaxed. My make up was fantastic. I loved everything about it.

Mrs Joanne hosking (cox)

Lucy was amazing,she is so friendly I instantly felt at ease. It was amazing to be a princess for a day and Lucy was a huge part of that for me. My make up felt natural and all day people commented on how amazing it looked.

Mrs Marie GODDEN

Lucy was just excellent, very professional over phone and email when I first booked her and regularly updated me with invoices and wedding day timings so I felt confident of her ability even before my trial. On both the trial and day of wedding she kept me calm, was very friendly and my makeup and my bridesmaids make up was wonderful. All of our make up lasted the whole day too and we particularly like having sample lipsticks to touch up during the day. I will definitely recommend Lucy.

Lucy Jayne was fabulous throughout. Before the wedding she made sure she understood exactly what I wanted and also took time with all my ladies to ensure likewise. She made us all feel so comfortable, even the shy ladies who were not used to using make up. My sister in law nearly cried when she saw how lovely she looked. On the day everyone said how stunning I looked which was amazing as I am 48 years old – Lucy’s make up lasted perfectly all day and I can’t thank her enough

Lucy was lovely and I felt instantly at ease with her. I felt I could say if I didn’t like something and she took any constructive critcism on the chin and adapted my make up to what I wanted without losing any integrity to her quality and skills. Lucy also worked well with my entire bridal party especially my sister who was my Maid of Honour and does not wear make up often if at all. Having recently recovered from breast cancer she was nervous about being so made up and actually loved her look so much on the wedding day it’s inspired her to renew her own wedding vows after 25 years of marriage. I would highly recommend Lucy to any friends and family looking for a make up artiest for any occasion.
