You’ve set the date, booked the venue and chosen a beautiful dress, so the hair and makeup needs to be just as perfect! Whether you’re after relaxed and natural or even a vintage wedding style; a look that’s completely right for you will be created to suit your wedding day.
Your Hair and Makeup trial can be booked as soon as you like; some brides prefer to have a trial straight away after enquiring but most choose to have theirs 2-3 months before the wedding date as our hair and skin (and minds!) can change so much throughout the year. This is around the time you’ll be thinking about hair colour services and skin treatments in the run up to your day and a similar time to your dress fittings.
The trial will be a really relaxed experience and can be a great time to get the rest of your bridal party involved…if you wish! I will come to your home or address of choice so that you’re comfortable and relaxed. A trial then allows us to try different looks and ideas, often with the help of images you’ve found, accessories and of course the style of your dress. A hair and makeup trial should be great fun so try to make an occasion of it so that you can test run your makeup afterwards or pop to a dress fitting. It’s incredibly important that your makeup trial takes place in daylight hours as it enables both of use to be able to view your makeup accurately.
On your wedding day I will be by your side to ensure you look amazing and you feel as calm and relaxed as possible. I will arrive bright and early at your wedding venue or home to get set up and ready to start on your bridesmaids and will be with you right until the point your cars are departing or registrars are ready to whisk you away! After your hair and makeup trial, I will help you put together a schedule for your wedding morning that allows you lots of time to get your dress on and have some pictures with your photographer. I only do one wedding a day though so that each bride has my undivided attention the morning of her wedding and that there is absolutely no rushing off. I’m lucky enough to have worked with hundreds or bride and I’ll be with you until you’re dressed and ready to go and to help with finishing touches, getting dresses, buttonholes on and flowers out of the water!
“It’s wonderful to be involved in someones’ big day and the best part, is being able to give a bride a look she loves and feels beautiful in.”
Starting from the basics through to any specific areas you would like to focus on, together we will chat about product options, look at what products you already use and how they can be incorporated. There are a few things to consider with bridal makeup for example; whether a product contains high levels of SPF or titanium dioxide as these won’t always work if your wedding photographer uses flash for the photo’s.
Tips, techniques, personalised advice, full make up application, a face chart and product recommendations are included. I am not associated with any cosmetic brand so all advice is completely impartial.
