Before the wedding / trial
On our first meeting we will discuss your wedding in detail. I love hearing all about the wedding as this helps me build up an idea of how you want to look and feel on your wedding day.
Feel free to have photos of anything to do with the wedding and ideas for hair or make-up, we can discuss these further and create the perfect timeless look for your big day. It’s important to look like the best version of yourself at your wedding and not someone completely different, so we will take into account what you normally do with your make-up.
Choosing your wedding hair or make-up is almost as important as picking your dress. A pre-wedding trial is a must as it is important to get the look correct whilst ensuring everything wears perfectly on your skin. We will also talk through the logistics for your wedding morning.
If you already have someone in mind for your hair then I can still look after your make-up or vice versa. Once we are happy with the look, I will note down products and techniques used and take photos to accompany the notes, so it’s easy to recreate your chosen look on your wedding day.
Trials generally take around 3-4 hours for hair and makeup together, so rest assured we will have plenty of time to make sure that your happy with everything. I suggest trials take place around 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding day.
On the day
On the day I will arrive at your chosen venue with plenty of time to set up. Your chosen hairstyle will decide whether make-up is applied before or after your hair is styled, this can be discussed on the trial. I will leave enough time to check and top up lips before I leave you. I will bring everything I need with me, your job will be to sit down relax and enjoy your wedding morning.
I suggest having completed hair and make-up around 1-2 hours before the ceremony so you are left with enough time to get into your dress, have photographs taken and enjoy your time.
Products I use in my kit include MAC, Bobbi Brown, Urban Decay, Estee Lauder, YSL, Nars, Illamasqua & Benefit. I am not affiliated with any make-up brand, so this enables me to choose the best products from each one. I’m a MAC Pro member and fully qualified so rest assured you are in safe hands.
I always love to chat about hair and make-up so if you have any questions please get in touch here.
