Trial & the day
experiment, tweak & have your wow moment!
You’re warmly invited to my home studio for your trial, a cosy dedicated space for us to play with products and styles until we perfect your bridal look and have fun whilst doing it!
Let’s put your favourite playlist on and settle in with a cup of tea and get chatting all things wedding.
I’m truly obsessed with the finer details of your big day, so make sure to bring along your inspiration images of everything from flowers to decor so I can get an idea of the vibe you’re trying to create for your big day. You’ll also want to bring some images of makeup/hair that you like and an image of your dress of course. Once we’ve negotiated our way through your Pinterest boards, we’ll tailor a signature look that is perfectly you and harmonious with your styling.
I usually allow up to 2 hours for a makeup trial and up to 4 hours for makeup and hair.
If you’re nervous or want a second opinion bring along mum or a close friend who will give you truths but in a kind manner. Once you’re happy we’ve got the look just right, I’ll make lots of notes and take some pictures to refer back to on the day.
Before the big day I will send you a confirmation message including a bespoke timeline and suggestions of products you’ll need to top up with on the day, along with advice on skincare if needed and tips for maintaining the look, meaning that you can be at complete ease and sleep soundly knowing you’re in good hands and will have a stress free day.
the big Day
Your big day is finally here and it’s time to get you ready to say ‘I do!’
I will arrive at your location at the pre-arranged time and set up ready to begin.
I like to allow 15 minutes to set up, followed by 45 minutes per person for the bridal party and 1 hour for the bride for makeup, this of course can vary from time to time. If hair services are also included this will be done on a bespoke timeline.
My aim is to have everybody ready around 30-45 minutes prior to leaving, this gives everyone enough time to get dressed, have some pictures or just take a second to relax and take it all in.
I like to stay until everyone is dressed to do all final touch ups and just be there to lend a hand where I can; if this is not possible I will do a freshen up for everyone prior to leaving and take a few snaps to capture your beautiful look.
Should you want me to stay on to freshen you up for your professional images after the ceremony/wedding breakfast or to do a second look, this will incur an extra charge.

*If you are requiring hair and makeup for a large bridal party it is unlikely I’ll be able to do both and so in these circumstances I will suggest looking for two separate suppliers and I’m always more then happy to give contact details for hairstylists who I work with often and who are extremely talented.
