Hopefully the questions below will answer any of your queries, please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you have.
I want to book for you to do my makeup and/or hair, what happens first?
Feel free to contact me by email or phone or the contact form page and after discussing your queries, request that you would like to go ahead with the booking and I will send you the Booking Form to complete. Once completed send back to the address supplied or through email, within 14 days.
How do I secure the Booking to make sure nobody else takes my wedding date?
A £50 deposit is requested from you which will secure your wedding date in the diary. Deposit paid will be taken off the final balance.
When should I have my trial?
Trials usually take place approximately 4-6 weeks before the wedding. Trials are held on weekdays at my location. I always advise to have a morning appointment so that the we are working with natural light and you are also able to see how well the hair and makeup lasts through the day.
Trials are better to be done once the dress has been picked, any accessories, colour scheme is chosen and and other details that will have impact on your overall look.
Do you come to my home/venue or do I have to come to you?
For the wedding day, I will travel to wherever you will be getting ready (house, hotel, venue etc). For the trial, I ask that trials are held at my location. I have a beautiful base within a salon where your trial will be held and you are also welcome to bring someone along. I always suggest bringing someone who's opinion you really trust to help you to with your final Hair and Makeup decision.
What happens at the trial?
Your trial for the bride alone lasts around 2 hours (for Hair and Makeup). We will discuss the details of your wedding - dress, accessories, flowers, theme etc. We will also discuss what make-up you would normally wear (if any) and will discuss any ideas we both have and then complete your look until you are happy, making any changes until perfect for you. If your bridesmaids, mother or any other guests would like a trial they can have theirs at the same appointment as yours. Its really helpful if you have an image of your wedding gown to show me and also a few inspirational pics of Hair and Makeup styles that you like. My Instagram and Facebook are constantly updated with my bridal clients looks so feel free to take any of my images as inspiration too! Don't forget, I can provide you and your bridal squad with your hair accessories. They will be available for you to try before you buy at your trial appointment with me. For an idea of the accessories I supply for purchase, please visit the website www.bonbonbride.co.uk.
What happens on the wedding day?
I will arrive in plenty of time to set-up so ready to start the first person promptly, as discussed on the schedule beforehand. The timings for hair and makeup on the morning will have been planned and I will always have everybody ready in good time to avoid lateness, stress and panic on the morning. Hair is normally done first on everybody and I work on bridesmaids, mums etc first so that the bride is as fresh as possible for the ceremony.
How can I pay?
Cash or BACS for any payments please. I will normally send you an invoice link via my app with all the details. Receipts will be provided.
