About Us

Beau Papillon was born in 2006 out of an everyday conversation between myself (Sarah) and Leanne over a cup of coffee.

We met as neighbours in 1999 and quickly became the very best of friends.  At the time Leanne was working for Chanel and I was doing the occasional special occasion make up for friends.  In 2003 I opened up The Butterfly Beauty room offering beauty treatments and Leanne was now working for Lancôme but becoming more involved with hairdressing.

Skipping forward to 2006 and after 6 children between us, Leanne was now working as a Stylist in a busy Bath salon and I had continued to expand my treatments and had now built up a solid client base.  I was already offering wedding make up to Brides and the thoughts of my own wedding gave me the idea to offer wedding packages– a one stop home based wedding day service.

We started by exhibiting at Wedding Fayres and quickly had a number of bookings flooding in!!  In 2009 we were approached by The Bath Chronicle to offer Wedding Hair and Make Up as part of their “Win a Wedding” competition which we were happy to be a part of.  We also offered our services to the winner of Snap Dragon Wedding raffle Hair and Make up!

We have a natural chemistry and work very well together without consciously trying!!  The Brides we have worked for say how “calm and comfortable” we made them feel, and how we became a really important part of their day.

The best thing about being a part of someone’s wedding day – is meeting their friends and family and seeing them transform out of their PJ’s!! The worst thing – is leaving before they put on their wedding dress!

It is not just a job for us, it really is an honour and a pleasure x
