How do I book my Wedding Hair and Makeup
Updated: May 26, 2020
Hi everyone! Thanks for taking the time to visit my website, and wanting to know a little bit more about how it all works! I know it can be a bit confusing, not to mention stressful when your planning your wedding, so I'm hoping that this blog post will go some way to explaining the process of booking your hair and makeup from start to finish. But first, here is a quick bullet point list of the process to help break it down!
Step 1 - Check out my gallery to get a feel for my style of hair and makeup
Step 2 - Fill out this enquiry form in as much detail as possible
Step 3 - We will discuss your enquiry, and if I am available for your date I will send you a quote breakdown
Step 4 - Should you wish to go ahead, we will discuss a date for your trial before I send over your contract and an invoice for your deposit, which pencils your wedding day in my diary.
Step 5 - The remaining balance for your trial is due 2 weeks before your trial date so I will send this over as well as an email to check in on how you are doing
Step 6 - At your trial we will have a full consultation to discuss you, your wedding, and what I can do for you
Step 7 - After your trial, I will do a write up to confirm everything we did at the trial, as well as any photos I took. It's at this point that I will also send you over an invoice for the deposit for your wedding day.
Step 8 - About a month before your wedding, I will send over an invoice for your remaining balance, and check in on how everything is going.
Step 9 - I arrive on your wedding day to get you and your bridal party for an awesome day.
Step 10 - You get married!
It's really important to me that you look and feel comfortable in your hair and makeup for your wedding, and that you still feel like yourself. It’s important that you look radient, not only in person, but on camera and film too if you’re using a videographer.
I love taking inspiration from elements of your wedding plans to tailor your hair and makeup to you, and the over all feel of your wedding. I also love working with Airbrush Makeup, as it really has the most beautiful finish in person and on camera, and the coverage can be kept nice and light, or built up without looking heavy.
Your trial is not only a fantastic opportunity to create your bespoke hair and makeup look for your wedding day, and to see what products work best for your skin and hair, but also for us to get to know each other! It is also a great opportunity to ask me any questions and to have a good look at what I carry in my kit!
My kit is constantly evolving, which is one of the reasons I advise having your trial no more than 3 months before your big day, ideally between 6-8 weeks beforehand. This also means that by the time we get to your trial, you will have a pretty good idea of how your day is going to look, and how we can reflect the over all feel of your day in your hair and makeup.
In the lead up to the wedding, we will work together to create a schedule to make sure that you and your bridal party are all ready in plenty of time. This takes into account extra time for touch ups, helping you with your veil and any other accessories, and making sure you have some private time with your bridal party before you need to leave
Should you then wish for me to stay for touch ups for your photos after your ceremony, I can bring a mini kit with me, and even set up a station for your guests. Alternatively I can provide you with a few pins, a mini hairspray, and a small sample of your bespoke lip colour (I usually mix together about 4 or 5 different shades of lipstick to get your perfect colour!) to keep you looking fresh throughout the day.
I appreciate that this can be a lot of information to take in, and you may even still have some questions, and I would love for you to get in touch so I can talk you through any concerns.

I also have a list of guide package prices available here, although I appreciate that these packages might not suit everyone, so for an accurate quote, please fill out my Bridal Enquiry Form and I will get back to you as soon as I can!
