Hampton Manor... Hair & Makeup - Nicola Honey Artistry by Nicola Honey

I love Hampton Manor, this is one of my favourite places to visit. I especially love that the interior is adorned with Willian Morris throughout. I am OBSESSED with William Morris! It is also ideal for wedding guests to travel to, right next to the train station and only a few stops from Birmingham centre.

Here are a few examples of my makeup work at this venue.

Lovely words - Katie by Nicola Honey

As soon as I met Nicola at a Wedding Fair I knew she was the one to do my make up & Hair for my wedding. She understood exactly what I visioned for the Bridal party and listened (rare in the wedding industry lol). She keeps in touch through the run up to the big day, for timings on the day, arranging a trial for Brides Hair and Make up and turns up well on time to get ready on the morning (essential). Nicola settled my nerves (& slight hangover) with her laid back calm attitude which is exactly what I needed. All timings were bang on time for all 5 bridesmaids, Mother of the Bride & Me (Bride) to get on our way. Nicola was so helpful whilst getting dressed, putting my veil on my hair and making sure I looked the part, she was wonderful to have around and apart of the morning.
All makeup used was top quality and knew exactly how to get the hairstyles I wanted perfect on the day. Endless compliments were given to me and my bridal party throughout the day, now looking at photos loved my makeup and hair so much and wouldn’t change a thing. Your a fantastic Hair & Make up artist & to have the personality to match 👌🏻 perfect! Lots of love to you xxx

Lovely words by Nicola Honey

What an incredible find! I booked Nicola for my wedding make-up (as well as hair and make-up for my bridesmaids and Mothers of the Bride & Groom); it is easily one of the best decisions I made for my big day! She was friendly, professional and expertly created my perfect bridal look. I honestly couldn’t be happier with the results! 

I was hugely impressed with Nicola at my make-up trial. As someone who does not wear make-up on a regular basis, I was quite unsure as to what I wanted for my wedding look and more importantly, what would suit me best. Nicky was fantastic at guiding me and helping decide on my bridal make-up with me. She was supportive and offered honest, friendly advice and talked through the options I had researched. The make-up at the trial was stunning and stayed put all day. I was able to easily discuss my look with Nicola both before and afterwards and she was patient and reassuring.

With a bridal party consisting of 10 bridesmaids, there were a lot of girls to cater for and everyone was absolutely thrilled with their looks on the day. Nicola was brilliant to deal with in the run-up to the wedding and sourced talented additional artists to make each of my (many) girls feel their best. 

On the morning of our wedding, Nicola was punctual, organised and as friendly as always which helped keep me calm; I felt in very safe hands throughout. My make-up was flawless and lasted all day (and I happy-cried a lot!). I lost count at how many people complimented both mine and my bridesmaid’s hair and make-up. My look was beautifully natural and was exactly what I wanted.

Thank you so much for making me feel every inch the beautiful bride that I wanted to be; I am beyond thrilled with your work. I cannot recommend you enough and my army of bridesmaids have all said the same! Thank you for being so wonderful to work with before and on the day of the wedding- it is so appreciated! We were a big party to deal with and we loved having you as part of the day. You are a hugely talented and very lovely lady!

Thank you Nicola, you are a star!
