Making Contact / Securing the Date
After I have confirmed your wedding date is available with myself, I will email you a link to your booking form to fill in all your hair and makeup requirements including booking in a trial (if requiring one, not always necessary) if you could put down a few dates as options bearing in mind midweek will always be more flexible due to working on weddings during the weekend. To secure the date with a deposit the details are on the second page of the booking form just following the guided steps and click submit.
The deposit secures your date and is a non-refundable deposit of £5o. Your date is not secured until the deposit has been made and cannot guarantee your date as a confirmed booking without one.
I have a studio in my home, BH14 8HE, right next to the beach, with parking.
However if this is proving difficult for some brides, I can do trials at your house.
When I arrive at your location for your trial I require natural daylight for makeup, a powerpoint if having a hair trial and a table or surface with space to put my products on .
We start with an initial consultation on what you’d like to achieve, your wedding style, themes, colours, dress that could put an influence on your bridal look. Images are good to have at hand as an artist I work visually so this can help as a good starting point.
Payment for your trial is due by bank transfer clearing before the trial date. Please use your surname and date is used for reference.
If your bridesmaids or mother of the bride/groom wishes to have a trial too, this has to be done on the same booking day and time as yours.
It is best if your hair is natural, and washed how you would on the day. However is it usually best styled washing the day before or 2 days before. Unless your hair is very fine and needs washing on the same day. And no makeup on – if possible! It saves time taking it off.
A trial will always take longer than on the day, as we discuss ideas, try a couple of ideas of styles and write up your makeup/hair chart. I also take pictures to record what style I have created for your big day!
We will also discuss timings at this point after the trial, arrival, times for your hair & makeup we will need, and for your bridal party. Whether or not I will need an assistant, and time we will finish. Always leaving 30 minutes left towards the end for dressing time, touch ups, photo’s, bubbles and girlie / relaxed time so your not rushing out the door in chaos before getting married.
Trial payment is due before the trial. For prices please see my prices page. Bank transfers can be done and cleared ahead of the trial.
On the day
I will always get in touch by text or email the day before your wedding as it can sometimes be months since you last saw me at the trial. So you can relax and trust all is well in hand for your hair & makeup in the morning ahead.
Arriving at agreed time I / or assistant will set up get the heat on for the hair, and begin getting you all ready and looking amazing.
If there is any parking restrictions please do let me know ahead of the day. Any parking costs involved this will be added to the total amount due.
The remaining amount for your hair & makeup is due before the big day by bank transfer, please have this prepared as it can the last thing you want to be thinking about on the day. Bank transfers cleared the day before is also a quick way of settling the amount due. Please do not forget to use your name as reference so I can allocate it as yours.
I will usually take pictures of your gorgeous looks and share them on my social media pages on Facebook page and Instagram
Although my pictures will not be as professional as your photographers so please do share on my Facebook page or email the link to firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to creating your beautiful makeup and hair looks.
