Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life. It is so important to feel comfortable so I work with you to create a look that makes you look and feel at your most beautiful. I also know from experience that weddings can be very stressful so I will do everything in my power to ensure that you feel completely relaxed so that you can just enjoy yourself.
I advise that all brides have a makeup trial at least 8-12 weeks before your wedding day. By having a makeup trial I can ensure that you are happy with the finished makeup look before the big day.
During our first meeting we will chat about your wedding as it helps me to build up a picture of your wedding day and then you can tell me about the type of makeup look you would like to go for. Feel free to show me any photos you may have too.
I will then start applying your makeup. Please feel free to change anything as we go along. I want you to be completely happy with the way you look so you know that you are going to look and feel amazing on your big day.
Makeup trials are usually carried out during the daytime as makeup looks better in natural light and I can also see that the makeup wears perfectly on your skin for the rest of the day.
Once you are happy with the finished look, I will note down products used on a face chart and take photos to accompany my notes to ensure that the exact same look is recreated on your wedding day.
Trials generally take around 2 hours but there’s no time limit and I won’t leave you until you are 100% happy with the finished bridal look. Trials usually take place at your home or another location of your choice.
On The Day
On your wedding day I will arrive at your chosen venue with plenty of time to set up. Prior to your wedding day I will have already discussed timings for the day with you so that preparations run smoothly and your wedding day morning can be nice and relaxed. I will require a clear space with a table to set up my kit and ideally in an area of the room with good lighting. I can bring my own chair if required.
It takes between 30 minutes to 1 hour per person for makeup to be applied and I generally apply makeup to the bridal party first and the bride usually has her makeup done last so that it remains as fresh as possible.
I always aim to complete the bridal party with enough time to spare so that you can get into your dresses and have photographs taken. I will also still be available for any last minute touch-ups and I'm happy to assist in any way I can.
If you have a large bridal party, dependent on timings, I may need to sort out another makeup artist to assist on the wedding morning. I do not style bridal hair but I am happy to recommend bridal hair stylists if you need me to. There is a minimum booking number of a bride plus 2 adults.
