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 deposit is requested from you which will secure your wedding date in the diary. Deposit paid is 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/weekday evenings. Trials can be held at your home or mine if you prefer to save on the mileage fees. I bring my full hair and makeup kit and look like I'm moving in for a week with all my luggage! It is a good idea to have a morning appointment so that the natural light is better and then you are 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, my house or a location of your choice is absolutely fine.
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 should have theirs at the same appointment as yours. Its really helpful if you ahem 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 constable updated with my bridal clients looks so feel free to take any of my images as inspiration too!
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?
Cheque or BACS for any payments. Receipts will be provided.
