Oh no! I was accosted by a lovely young man today...I was tired...probably looked a fright. I was offered what I knew was a spiel, but said I'd negotiate a price. I got the 'deal' for forty quid. After reading the reviews I rather think I've been a twerp. However, I'll go along...but certainly won't be buying any pics. Watch this space. Perhaps I'm wrong.......can't do star ratings except on the personable young man, so ignore the notional stars

My experience with Belgravia Studios was one of the worst I have ever had. Please read on to get a full picture of my experience and how you can avoid and steer clear of this shameless money grabbing company. I was stopped on the road by a member of their marketing team who explained that they were doing a special deal where you could come in for a special treatment which included hair Styling, getting your nails done, makeup and a photo shoot for £59.99 per voucher instead of £299. He explained that the reason for they were doing this is that at the end you get a free photo which you could show to your friends which would be advert for them. I specifically asked him how much extra photos would cost if we wanted more and he advised me to take just the complimentary one as that would be good enough. He even repeated it when I asked again. I therefore got two vouchers for my niece and her friend who are 17 & 18 years old and were in England with me on holiday. The following week I booked the experience for them and was told I needed to pay a £30 refundable deposit for each of them. This annoyed me slightly because I was not told this when I bought the voucher. On the day, my nieces had the experience and when it came to the time for them to choose their photos they were told they needed to have their parent or legal guardian there because they were under 18. The 18 year old told them REPEATEDLY that she was 18 but they brushed it aside. I even called Belgravia from work to explain that I was unwell and could not come and that one of the girls is 18 but they insisted that I come in. When I got there we were called in for the photo viewing session after waiting for an hour!! The lady painstakingly made us view 160 photos and got them to choose the ones they liked. They girls narrowed their choice down to 59 photos and then the lady went into this sales pitch nonsense and asked me to pay £1000 for the photos. I explained to her that this is not want I understood the day to be and she kept on putting pressure on me and using the guilt trip to try and make me buy the photos at a reduced rate of £700 for 10 or £350 for 5. When I stood my ground, she became very aggressive and abusive accusing me of treating her like a piece of dirt. She also stated amongst MANY things that I was rude, ignorant and did not want to spend a penny. I ended storming out leaving the girls to choose their one free photo. Even at that she shamelessly scammed them into using the deposit I paid to buy an additional photo. I regret ever doing business with them and I can comfortably say that if they continue to conduct business this way they are definitely heading for bankruptcy.

I have been sold a voucher for the Belgravia Studios on my university campus. It was advertised as a 4 hour session where me and a friend were meant to have a 'cleanse tone and moisturise treatment' make up tutorial on top brands which I said I liked (limecrime, nars ect), hair and makeup done, unlimited 'champagne', a photoshoot and at the end I could choose a complimentary photo 'of my choice'.
I am a student, so I was a bit weary of whether I will be required to pay anymore on the day. I was assured that I will not be pressured into buying any expensive packages.

I was very disappointed...the 'cleanse tone and moisturise treatment' consisted of the make up artist wiping my face with a cheap cleanser from boots. The (cheap) make up could have taken about 5 minutes if it wasn't for the staff constantly chatting loudly for half an hour. The hair stylist had no heat protection sprays, used drug store hair products and damaged my hair with the straightener.

The photoshoot was not too bad, the entire thing was done in under 2 hours....Until I got to view the photos and the manager started pressuring me into buying photo packages that cost hundreds of pounds. I told the manager that I bought this voucher for my friend as a christmas present, so I would like to receive the 'one complimentary picture of my choice', which was a photo of both me and her. She said that I can't have this one because it has to be one person on the picture (didn't say that anywhere on the voucher). So I said okay, I would like the one of my friend. She refused and said that it has to be a picture of me because I was the one that purchased the voucher.

It was very clear at that point that she was not going to let me leave with just a complimentary photo. She kept making excuses to make me pay for these photos. I tried to reason with her and she was incredibly rude, raising her voice, telling me that she went to law school and been in the business for 17 years etc. In the end she took my £100 deposit with no shame to have scammed a student like this.

Oh, and by the way, there was no champagne, only a glass of non alcoholic 'cocktail' was given to me after asking nicely asking twice.

I would advice anybody interested in using their serviced to think twice. The services are bad value for money, rude staff, overpriced photo packages and a very high chance of never getting your deposit back.

My friend and I went today to this studio having no idea what to expect. We were pleased with how easy it was to find the studios, how friendly the staff were and even when we arrived early we didn't feel like we were made to wait a ridiculous time before being made up. And it really was made up! The staff were so lovely and made us feel so comfortable in a situation we weren't too familiar with. The make up? Done wonderfully! The hair? Wonderful too! With a busy studio the staff dealt very well with timings of photo shoots. We loved posing with the photographer and felt like professionals. After our photo shoot we had a Buck's Fizz and waited until our photos were ready. Most of the photos were very flattering and the edited versions were interesting to see too. Loved the day and would go back for sure!

Had a great time at Belgravia Studios today. The hair and make up artists were especially brilliant, I absolutely loved my pin up style hair! Hilarious photo shoot, Christmas jumpers are highly recommended (by us). High quality pictures and a very friendly photographer.

A really lovely experience. The photo-shoot was amazing, a lot of fun and exceeded our expectations. The photos came out beautifully and it was obvious that professional photographers make all the difference compared to normal photos.

Having the photographs was a lot of fun and would be even better with a friend. The staff were very relaxed at the same time very professional. I would definitely recommend to those wanting really high quality, flattering and at the same time natural looking photographs for friends, family and maybe even professional purposes.

Went with my family for a treat and had a great time. The staff were all very friendly and lovely to chat to, making sure we were happy with everything from how our make up was done to the complimentary glass of champagne. They spent a long time going through the photos after with us, making sure we chose the best ones. We had a lovely experience and are very pleased with the beautiful photos!

I spent a few hours in the studio and I had a good experience. I enjoyed it and pictures were really great.
I haven't received though the glass of champagne which I was told about at the very beginning.
Thank you you all at Belgravia Studio.

I have had the pleasure of spending a few hours at Belgraviastudios in Judd Street and feeling on top of the world!. This has been
a great makeover and photoshoot experience and I would highly recommend a visit to this place. The staff are professional, very friendly
clean, fun and super efficient. They make you feel at ease and make your day feel very special. First the welcome on arrival, then makeup artists,
Shelene and Lucy very professional and made us feel so glamorous! - who spent time asking what we liked before they started and then enhanced
all that!. Then the photographer, Cat a vivacious and gorgeous woman who clicked away and made us feel as if we were so special. Finally the talented and
fabulous Omar - the viewer who talked us through the photos and was the most delightful, funny and friendly person you could ever meet.
This young group of people have given us a very special day in a very tranquil and relaxed environment . Thank you for such a lovely day!

We had a fantastic day here at Belgravia Studios. The makeover was exactly what we asked for and the styling team were incredibly friendly. Our photographer (Jez) made us feel very relaxed, even when one of the party wasn't particularly comfortable with being photographed. The pictures were amazing. We waited a little while to view the images but this was understandable as this was a very busy time of year and it was made up for in the incredible finish of our photos. Thank you Belgravia Studios for a wonderful family filled day!

Overall the day was lovely. The make up and hair artists did an amazing job on me and made me look and feel fabulous. The photographer was creative and systematic and all of my pictures came out looking amazing. The staff were really welcoming and made the experience much more comfortable and relaxing. I would really reccomend this experience for those who are looking for some time out to feel pampered and special.

Oh yeah and not to forget that their time keeping is ridiculous...they kept me waiting for ages I must have spent at least an hour extra than I should have in the studio simply just waiting while the staff just did nothing. They were all a,so too engrossed in their own personal conversations about their personal lives making me feel quite bored whilst getting my hair and make up done. The studio is also tiny consisting of only two rooms.

We had a fabulous time; the makeup artistes were superb, they made us look great. The photographer Ivan was really on the ball and took some brilliant shots of us.
We were even offered a glass of bubbly whilst waiting for our photos to be viewed.
We would sincerely recommend a session at Belgravia Studios.

What a horrible experience! I booked this as a fun day for my best friends birthday earlier this year. For us it was just supposed to be a fun day of getting dolled up and having fun. the make over part was ok because the make up artist was really nice and very attentive. The photographer Bart was also ok, we had some fun taking the photos. However the problem was with the guy who was showing us the pictures, we said numerous times that we didn't really want to buy the pics. At first in order to persuade us to buy the photos he was being nice but the minute he realised we wouldn't buy the pictures as they were simply too expensive his whole attitude changed. He was rude and aggressive and made some horrible remarks. I don't understand how someone like this is allowed to work in such an establishment. Disgusting behaviour from Omar! I've read in some other reviews where people have complained about Omar and his behaviour. He ruined what was actually a good day! Will never be going back and I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone who wouldn't like to be bullied into buying pictures and then verbally abused when you refused to buy them. Shocking behaviour.

I agree they offered me a "discount" when I said the pictures were too expensive and they kept going on and on at me to get them...I felt really pressured and ended up paying £350 for pictures I didn't really want whilst I made a review in which he watched me write. I really regret buying the pictures as I even explained to them I was a student and could afford it. I, glad you never gave in like me!

@Amrita95 same thing happened to us. He even said he would give us a further discount if we wrote a good review and if we lied that we weren't friends but actually family. We didn't give into his pressure so he became really aggressive and started to make really inappropriate comments. He ruined what was actually a really nice day to start with! It was the most unprofessional thing I have seen in a long time.

Very nice staff and a good makeover experience, with a consultation on which look to go for. Loved the look they came up with! A very enthusiastic photographer who took really amazing photos - didn't know that I could look that great on photos.
I needed to wait for a while in between different parts of the day but the end result was worth the wait!

Bought this on a whim for my daughter's 18th Birthday as a surprise back in March and almost forgot about it if not for the friendly reminders from Belgravia Studio Staff.
Arrived and had a brillant afternoon. The staff are friendly and polite. The Photographer Gez is really great at making you feel comfortable and relaxed.My daughter and I had never done anything like this before and we really enjoyed it.
All round great afternoon and birthday treat for my 18 yr old.
