Wedding hair and makeup with dream team Daiva and Caine

Have you ever wanted to feel like Kim Kardashian with her very own glam squad? Well I certainly have and in the run up to my wedding I thought why not turn to Daiva from Daiva’s Beauty House.

I first met the uber talented Daiva earlier this year through LondonCityGirl. She gave me the best massage of my life and we hit it off.

When I was looking for someone to do my wedding makeup I immediately turned to her. There’s something about this chatty, charming, Lithuanian-born London resident that makes you feel like you’ve known her for years and I couldn’t imagine anyone I’d trust more with my face, on my big day.

She also suggested her friend Caine Bugden-Francois do my hair, after I told her that I was in the midst of that age old dilemma of hair-up, hair-down or half-up half-down.

Cue the dream team of Daiva and Caine who made me feel like a celebrity.

Daiva works out of her home in central London and her apartment is designed to cater to a very upmarket clientele. Everything is beautifully appointed and exudes luxury.

Once I arrived we had a chat and a consultation and they are both so lovely, it was like I was chatting to my two best friends.

Once the hair and makeup session began, Daiva said she was going to go for a natural bridal look and I was told in no uncertain terms that there would be no harsh black eyeliner - something which I’ve loved and worn since my teens - instead it was going to be all soft and romantic.

Caine followed suit and complemented the look with a half-up half-down creation with curls tumbling down my back. I asked for volume and I was granted my wish with a bouffant, softened by some loose strands framing my face.

The pair have worked in the beauty industry for years. Daiva is an award-winning makeup artist, winning three national makeup awards. She's worked with numerous magazine titles including Vogue Italy and has been a chief creative for L'oreal and Wella for their fashion shows.

Caine - despite being only in his early twenties - has already carved out a name for himself as a hairdresser. He started after leaving school and has operated in the luxury end of the market, working in Grosvenor House. His success and talent has meant that he’s now gone freelance with a regular clientele who love his work.

As you can tell from my glowing review, I adore these two!

I wish I was Kim K and I could afford a glam squad because, trust me, I’d be kidnapping both of them!
