Frequently Asked Questions
Q. When should I have my Trial run?
A. There's no set timescale, however through experience I would advise anything from 6 months to 2 weeks before the wedding. That's not to say it can't be done sooner if you're getting a little anxious about it. Don't worry.
Q. What brand of makeup do you use?
A. I use many brands and many are Pro. Over the years I have found my favourites and I always use products that photograph well and handle all conditions. As a Beauty writer I also get the chance to try many new products and have the pick of some great new finds!
Q. Do I require a deposit?
A. To secure your wedding booking I do require a £50 deposit prior to the trial - this is the trial fee for the bride. The deposit is non-refundable should you cancel your booking 2 weeks prior to the wedding.
Q. What do I need for my trial
A. I will travel to you. Please have ready if possible any pictures of bridal makeup/hair you like, colours of flowers/clothing, tiaras, veil, accessories.
If you prefer to email me any images prior to the trial then this is a good idea, especially for larger wedding parties.
Q. How long will my trial take?
A. I advise to leave 1 and a half hours for a makeup trial and an additional 1 hour per additional person.
Q. What happens on the wedding day
A. I will arrive at your chosen venue at the time agreed on the schedule I will have put together for you. I will arrive with plenty f time to set up
On the trial I will advise you of top-up products like lipstick/gloss that can also be purchased via my online shop should you wish to do this.
I will stay with you for as long as you need me before the weddig ceremony.
Q. What would happen if you were ill on my wedding day and couldn't do my makeup?
A. Over the 12 years this has never happened! However, I have a directory of reputable makeup artist and I would always endeavor to find a replacement artist for you and provide them with all the trial notes etc. I this was not possible I would give you a full refund of any deposits paid.
