Lorraine at PrincessBride was fantastic and so patient throughout the whole planning of my look for the day. From the panicked emails about the paleness of my skin in January to our 2nd trial in May, I felt really confident and relaxed on the day knowing that I could leave it Lorraine’s hands to turn me into a princess, which is exactly how I felt all day.

Hi Lorraine,
I’m great, hope you’re keeping well. I’ve been meaning to email you since the wedding just to say thanks again for everything. Yourself and the girls did an amazing job and all our hair and makeup stayed put all day and through the night :) It was just the best day ever, so much better than I could have ever imagined!
Of course you can use all the photos. I’m honoured that you want to, our pictures did turn out beautiful though I have to admit, David did a great job.
Thanks again, and if anyone I know ever gets married in Spain I’ll most definitely be recommending you!


Paula Kilkenny
Hi Lori

Hope all is well with you.  We're only home since yesterday.  Just wanted to say thank you again for everything.  It was such a pleasure to have met you and everything was perfect on the day.  I couldn't have asked for more.  The whole day was perfect, the nerves got the better of me in the church when i went to say the vows and there was a few tears and of course Kara was up there with us in Johns arms for most of the ceremony which we didnt mind of course as it just added to it for us.  The rest of the day was just as perfect.  Seville was beautiful thought it was a bit on the hot side for us, will definitely have to go back again when its a bit cooler.

Im not back in work until monday so ive a few more days to relax with my new husband.

Thanks so much to you and the girls for our transformations, everyone commented how well we all looked and my sister Joanne who wouldnt really be very girly loved every bit of it and she was so glad that she got all made up

Paula Mahony xx


I just wanted to drop you a line to say THANKS so much for my hair and makeup on my wedding day, so many people commented how good it looked and I was amazed at what you did. Thank you so much for keeping me calm, and for remembering the flowers! We will be forever thankful.

Niamh O'Meara

Hi Lorraine, sorry for delay! Was too busy honeymooning! We had a brilliant holiday but sadly it's all over now! It was nice to get home though especially to see Goldie (our dog!!)
What a coincidence that you had the Forrester's visiting. What a small small world! They are a lovely family.
Sitting here with my friend Lisa watching X Factor while Alan is out working! Married life has not changed us at all!
Hope things are good with you!
Take care & thanks again for everything, Niamh :-)

Hi Lorriane,
I hope your day was not too long. I can't thank you enough for this morning. I was so happy and am still so happy with my hair and make-up. You have taken a load off my mind knowing that I will look just as I wanted to on my wedding day. Thank you most sincerely.

With regard to the bridesmaids - Emer and Sinéad both want a curly blowdry. I haven't heard from Yvonne yet but she arrives tomorrow so I can let you know that tomorrow.

Thanks again,
Niamh xx

Hi Lorraine

I hope you're well and enjoying lots more weddings!! I keep seeing new pages popping up on your facebook page so you must be very very busy!!

Jamie and I are now back home and floating down to reality after a truly amazing wedding day, it was incredible - the best day ever, like a dream. Thank you for being a part of it and making it extra special for us.

Everyone commented on how I looked and I must thank you for this!! You made me feel like a real princess, and my sister and mum looked gorgeous as well, so a huge thank you!!! I loved the massage in the morning - what a lovely way to start the day. And even though I made a very fashionabley late entrance (about half an hour!) everyone was blubbing and overjoyed all at once!!! Thank you again, and to Natalya (sp?!) as she was also great. It was a joy to spend the majority of our special day with you both!!

Once we have the professional pics of the day I will make sure you have some of these as well. Thank you so much!!

All the best,
Candy Warren. X

Hi Lorraine
Just rushing off to the mountains for a bit of rest but wanted to say thank you before we left.  It was a pleasure having you do my make up, it stayed on all day and outlasted the dress, shoes and hair!!!
Sorry it was a bit chaotic but these things never go to plan.
Thank you again and I will send over pics as soon as I get them.  I am sure they will be a very good testimonial for brides at the Cortijo.
Hope to see you soon xxx

Posts from; weddings online.ie

We started the day in the hotel room in the Marinas de Nerja getting ready. Lorraine from Princess Bride did my hair and make up and her colleague Natalya did my bridesmaids hair. We had the best fun a few days earlier at the hair and make up trial so I knew I was in good hands. I couldn't have been happier with Lorraine and I adored my hair and make up. The bridesmaids also looked fabulous. I would highly recommended Lorraine, she is so chilled out as well that it made it all so much easier when I was getting nervous and all the tummy flips going on. She did such a good job.

Hair & Make Up - .princess-bride.co.uk
Lorraine is just fantastic. You can also check out her facebook page Princess Bride and become a fan to see photos. There is one of me up there.

Our ceremony was due to start at 5. Lorraine from Princess Bride arrived at 11 bright and early I hear you say but actually she was putting the finishing touches on me at 5! She did hair and make up for four of us and everyone looked amazing. I was really really happy with the end result and so was everyone else, Lorraine and her assistant made sure that everyone was really happy and paid such attention to detail. I suffer with problem skin and was really worried about how I was going to look on the day. Lorraine did an absolutely amazing job and my skin looked flawless! She is a truly lovely lady, very tactful and extremely professional. I would highly recommend her!!!
