“I could not recommend Leigh highly enough. I booked her to do hair and make up for myself and for my bridal party. She was so friendly and professional from the start.

The whole process from the trial to the wedding day was seamless and stress free. The morning of the wedding was so well organised and she even managed to fix my shoes to stop them falling off! I was so happy with all of our hair and make up. It was all absolutely perfect.

The MUBYLEIGH team were brilliant to have around on the morning, calming nerves and having a laugh with us all. Thank you so much!”

“I couldn’t have asked for a better hair and makeup artist for my wedding, Leigh and the Megans were fantastic on the day and had a very early start, they did bride, bridesmaids, mums and aunties hair and makeup and we all looked stunning. They are such professionals and fitted in perfectly on the wedding morning and added to such a lovely, calm atmosphere. Leigh was so kind and helpful from the first message, I can’t recommend enough!”

“I can’t recommend Leigh enough for wedding hair and make up, she’s incredible! I absolutely loved the beautiful boho style she created for my hair which lasted perfectly and looks fab in all the photos.

Before my trial I was a bit nervous about having my make up done (as when I’ve had it done by make up artists previously it’s been too much for me), but Leigh’s style is spot on and she listened to what I liked and didn’t like. My make up lasted amazingly well for the 12 hours of my wedding day and I got so many compliments. Couldn’t be happier with it!

Lastly I just want to say how lovely Leigh is to work with – she’s organised, professional, kind and calm and when I was feeling nervous on the morning of the wedding she was amazing at keeping me calm and distracted.

Leigh was also fab with my little 4yr old bridesmaid, chatting to her and making her feel special. Definitely go ahead and book Leigh for your big day!”

“I booked Leigh to do mine and my bridesmaid hair and make up. From booking through to the big day Leigh was so helpful and professional. She made sure to check in during Covid and was flexible to rearrange to our new date and venue.

On the day Leigh was an absolute super star she made both my sister and I feel at ease and we were SO happy with our hair and makeup – she was there until I walked down the aisle making sure we looked perfect and providing suncream which we all forgot! She went above and beyond and helped with my little girl whilst we got dressed, making her feel like a little princess (she is still asking for sparkles to be put on haha). I really can’t thank her enough and would highly recommend her to any brides to be!”

“Lovely Leigh was incredible from start to finish. She was incredibly approachable and professional when initially emailing and finding out about her services (and so patient when I messed up the numbers of girls who wanted to get their hair done!).

During the trial, she was so approachable, friendly and just an all round lovely person to be around! If you’re lucky, Ruby (best dog in NE) will sit on your lap and chill with you while Leigh makes you beautiful. She was so reassuring the whole time and really listened to what you wanted while making really helpful suggestions.

On the big day, she and her lovely friend Megan arrived super early so all my bridesmaids could get their hair and make up done too. All of my friends LOVED their beautiful hair and makeup and I know I did too. If you are looking for an incredibly talented, professional, kind, patient and approachable hair and make up artist, please do not look any further.”
Zeynep | Biscuit Factory, 19th June 2021 - Andy Turner Photography
“Myself and my bridesmaids had the pleasure of Leigh and Megan making us look beautiful for my wedding. My whole experience with them from my initial enquiry to the day of my wedding was fantastic – the perfect balance of friendly and professional. On the lead up to my wedding day Leigh always got back to any of my questions very quickly, and was extremely helpful in giving tips on how to prepare for my trial and big day. At my makeup trial Leigh listened carefully to what hairstyle and makeup I was looking for and created my perfect wedding day look. She was so welcoming, friendly and easy to talk to. On the day of my wedding Leigh and Megan arrived right on time. They got on with myself and my bridesmaids so well, nothing felt forced and everyone commented on how lovely they were. Their calm and cool demeanor is exactly what you need just hours before you walk down the aisle. Our hair and makeup looked amazing and lasted all day. Aside from the fantastic hair and makeup, the best thing about having them there was the support they gave in the final hour before I walked down the aisle. Rather than packing up and leaving once our looks were completed, they stayed and helped us move our bags over to the bridal suite; they also helped me with final touches such as jewellery and fitting my veil. I can’t express how grateful I am for all their support, and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat! Thanks so much girls!”

“Where do I start with singing this girls praises? Leigh was one of the first people I contacted when planning my wedding. After speaking to her over a few emails I knew straight away I would feel comfortable having her as my makeup and hair stylist. It was honestly like speaking to a friend and we kept in touch throughout even just to chat!

At my bridal trial she knew exactly what she was doing and you can tell she absolutely loves what she does and cares so much about making you feel special and beautiful! She created something totally unique to me and it made me even more excited for my wedding day. I couldn’t wait to share photos with friends and family! She also has the cutest dog ever Ruby who was equally a pleasure to be with!

Fast forward to my wedding day – aside from the fact she done a flawless job of mine and my bridesmaids hair and makeup – she put up with us taking the mick out of her Yorkshire accent and I think we belly laughed all morning with her! Even my bridesmaid who doesn’t wear makeup loved her look. I honestly just think she is so talented at her job and an incredibly lovely person to be around and I really hope that we can stay in touch!”

“Thank you Leigh for doing my make-up and styling my hair for my wedding day. It was a pleasant experience from start to finish and I was getting compliments all day. Megan was also brilliant at doing the make-up for the girls and they all loved the results and the photographs that were taken on the day. The make up lasted all day and still looked fantastic at the end of the evening. They were both very professional, organised and really accommodating. Leigh also helped me find my bouquet of flowers, which I really appreciate. I would highly recommend both her and Megan in the future to anyone that needs hair and make-up services.”
Nathalie | Matfen Hall, 2nd November 2021 - Sawyer and Sawyer Photography
“MUBYLEIGH did the hair and makeup for myself and my 4 bridesmaids for my wedding in September. I can’t recommend them strongly enough.

My trial was really chilled, the studio is a lovely setting and Leigh was patient with me whilst we tried some modifications. Not only did they make me feel fantastic, they were a real joy to have around on the morning of the wedding. They were never in the way and always being helpful and a calming influence. They truly went over and beyond, herding wasps, helping with a dress malfunction and even carrying my train through the rain!

I’m so pleased I found Leigh, she was one of the best decisions I made about our special day. I really trusted that they would make me and my girls look our best selves – and they really did deliver!

Thank you so much for making me feel glam but relaxed, classy but a bit boho and just genuinely the best version of Me. So lovely to have had you both as part of our day!”
Emma | Barn On The Bay, 10th September 2021 - Amy Lou Photography
“If you’re looking for a makeup artist whose going to calm those pre-wedding morning nerves then look no further!

Finding someone to trust with making you look the best version of yourself on the morning of your wedding is hard, but Leigh made it so easy. From the moment I enquired (so grateful you were still available when we postponed!), Leigh was responsive, helpful and willing to do everything she could to make myself and my bridal party feel like absolute royalty, and my did I feel like a Queen on my wedding day!

Thank you to both Leigh and Megan for joining us at the crack of dawn to make sure all 6 of us were ready on time! My makeup didn’t budge, my veil stayed put, my Maid of Honour, Bridesmaids and Mum all looked absolutely stunning, all thanks to the dream team that is Leigh and Megan. Thank you again for helping make our day so perfect, I wish you could do my makeup every day!”

“I booked Leigh to do my hair and makeup for my microwedding in Newcastle. Her hairstyling is off the charts. Leigh is so sweet and considerate of looks I wanted – while delivering her own classic subtle style to the look. I couldn’t have picked a better person to do my wedding look. It was perfect!”

Fifa | Malmaison, 23rd October 2020 - From The Smiths Photography

“Leigh did both my hair and makeup on my wedding day. During my trial she was so patient, listening to my opinions on the styles I liked, and creating an eye makeup look that I felt comfortable with. On my wedding day, she was not only super professional but also very helpful in whatever way she could be, which helped me a lot to start my wedding day with ease. I would highly recommend Leigh!”

Yuze | Durham Castle,  10th February 2020 - 2tone Photography

“I was lucky enough to have Leigh do mine and my maid of honour’s hair and make up this October for our small elopement wedding. As we live over 5 hours away from where our wedding was held, I couldn’t have a hair and make up trial in person but Leigh held a zoom meeting to go through ideas and discuss what I wanted. She understood completely what I wanted and even trialed and modelled my choices on someone else so I could see exactly what it would look like! From the moment she arrived on the day, she was just amazing! My make up and hair were beyond anything I expected, it was perfect! My maid of honour even said her make up was better than on her own wedding day! Leigh kept me cool, calm and collected even with my crazy one year old running around causing havoc!! She stayed right until the moment I walked down the aisle and helped out with other little bits, just going above and beyond! Thank you so much, Leigh!”

Shelley | Treehouses, Ramside Hall, 27th October 2020 - Emily Hannah Photography

“Leigh did both my bridesmaid’s and my hair and make up for my wedding and I was so happy with the outcome! She’s so nice and friendly and more importantly, she listened to what I wanted at the trial and it couldn’t have been more perfect on the day! Definitely would recommend her.

Victoria | Lartington Hall, 20th February 2020 - Charlotte Eve Photography
“Leigh did my hair and make up for my wedding last weekend. From the first contact she was professional, ensuring that all the COVID guidelines were followed and making me feel completely safe and at ease. I don’t usually wear a lot of make up and so the trial was really helpful in seeing what suited me and what would work on the day, her home studio is also beautiful! In the middle of working full time, moving house and planning a wedding in a pandemic, the trial was the most relaxed I had felt in weeks which was perfect. On the wedding morning due to COVID, there was only me and my maid of honour getting ready together. Leigh fitted right in, she was able to do my maid of honours hair at short notice and also was so much fun to be around on the morning of the wedding. She stayed around until we were ready to leave, helping with finishing touches, chatting to the photographer and even helping us with our bags. The hair and make up was exactly how I wanted it, lasted all day and received so many compliments. I really could not recommend her enough!”
Caragh | Hotel Indigo Durham, 12th September 2020 - Stewart Barker Photography
“Leigh did my wedding on 13th April, and I couldn’t be more pleased with my finished look. She was amazing from start to finish. We didn’t have a face to face trail before the wedding date, but that didn’t stop her creating exactly what I asked for. She really went above and beyond I felt with little things like even doing my necklace and dress (due to restrictions there wasn’t many people there and my mum was tied up with my kids). She did a brilliant job at making my very shy children feel comfortable and happy and she took her time with each of them. Honestly she just contributed so much into making my day perfect and I thank her for that.”
