Hi Lorraine,

Steven and I have just arrived back home from sunny Spain having had the most amazing wedding/holiday/honeymoon all rolled into one! I just wanted to take the opportunity to say a mmmmmmassive thank you for your patience and magical make-overs! Myself, Emma,Sue, Jessica and my mum would like to thank you for the wonderful transformations and your hard work on the day, you did not stop for a second (you even helped with buttoning up the dress, which was a squeeze!lol!). Everybody has commented on how stunning we all looked and the photo's really show your talent!

All I need now is for you to travel to Cardiff, Wales to recreate my look for our wedding party! lol!

I have attached an odd few photo's which I thought you might like to look at.

Thanks once again!

Warm and kindest regards

Hi Lorraine,

I hope you are well! Just wanted to say a huge thanks to you for your fab work at Tracy's wedding (Marinas de Nerja) last week! You worked wonders on us all and we all felt amazing! I adored my make up so so much and was wondering if you could let me know the name of the foundation you used? I love the coverage it gave and would love to buy some?

Hi Lorraine,

Thank you for you email.

You were so professional all through out the day. Everyone was so pleased with their hair and makeup.

We had a few hick ups and a no show but we didn't let it ruin our day. At least we know our instincts were right!

Take care and best of luck for the future.

Hi Lorraine,

We just wanted to write to say thank you so much for everything you did to make our special day go so well.
We really appreciate all the hard work you put in on the day in order to get everyone ready, and that despite how busy you were, you were able to remain calm and happy and so pleasant to be around! We couldn't imagine having anyone better there on the day.
Everyone commented on how great everyone looked and how great you are what you do.

It made me feel so much more confident and calmer to have you around and you did such a wonderful job, I was so happy to have you there and I can't say how thankful I am that we found you!! I loved my hair and make-up so much, I couldn't imagine anything better.

I hope all is well with you and thank you so much again.

Victoria & Stephen

Hi Lorraine,

Back in the UK now after a lovely few days away by ourselves in Seville. The first week back at work has been HARD!

Anyway just wanted to send you a message to say thank so much for making me feel like such a beautiful bride on my wedding day. What a talented artist you are! The hair and make up was everything I wanted - and you were right, it stayed on all night! Amazing! Thanks too for making my mum and mum-in-law both look stunning. Everyone was commenting on the both of them. They were so chuffed you could fit them in on the day.

It was all a bit manic towards the end and so don't feel that I got to say thanks to you properly! So sorry! Hope you managed to get home ok.

Hope to get some official pictures from Gary soon so will make sure I send you a couple, unless Gary has already suggested he do this. Let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks again Lorraine!

Much love,
Bride: Sally

Well, it seems ages ago now that we were in Spain for our wedding. Talk about coming down to earth with a Big Bump!!!!!

Anyway, I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the other lady ( sorry, I'm really bad with names!!) for making the whole hair and makeup process an absolute joy:)

Everything turned out just as I had imagined and everyone was so relaxed on that morning thanks to you:))

Is there anything I can do to 'big u up' to other people? Can I leave a testimonial somewhere?

Thanks once again,

Sal x

Warmest Thanks

Dear Lorraine,

No doubt you have had a half-dozen more brides and two dozen more bridesmaids in your hands since June 10, but my one day with you shines brightly in my memory and the gratitude has been unceasing since that walk to the chapel on my dad's arm. I wanted to share an email you can show others: shall I put it in 3rd person? We can change it to 2nd person addressed to you directly if you like.

Lorraine Romain made all the difference on our wedding day. She transformed the bride, groom's mother, 3 bridesmaids, and 1 guest into happy and luminous beauties, with bespoke and romantic up-do's distinct with vintage glamour. Not only did she bring incredible focus, professionalism, and expert skills but bathed us in warmth and quiet wisdom with wonderful intuitive listening and clear questions. What also distinguished Lorraine was her insightful and precise analysis of my hair, skin, nail shape, and personal style of make-up, incorporating all of this into the beautiful wedding day wizardry she performed. When my husband Alex saw the first wedding photo of us, he teared up all over again: "You just look so beautiful." Lorraine captured this beauty and illuminated it in me, from hair to make-up to nails. And let it be said that the nail shape she gave me was much-admired and indeed the best I've ever had--because she customised perfectly based on my cuticle shape and nail width, etc. Brilliant! I wish all brides the experience of being with Lorraine and in her hands on their wedding day. I am eternally glad that I was.

With most heartfelt thanks, dear Lorraine!

Happy to make you happy, Lorraine! I wanted to say more about the beautiful natural-sexy-glow-from-within make-up too. Susan and I still talk about it.

I'll find you on Facebook. You've got a gift, Lorraine, but even without it you are so accomplished, focused, and seriously skilled by your own determination and effort. The group of women you styled at our wedding had big-time respect for that in you--all of us have worked so hard for what we have and what we've become. It was a joy to be with you, and I won't forget your insight that it is not about finding the one, but rather about finding the one who brings all the things that you aren't. I mentioned that in my toast to Alex that night.

Much love to you!

xo Sarah
