Can you hold my date?
The demand for my services during peak wedding months is very high, so for that reason dates cannot be held for any period of time. My availability is offered on a first come, first served basis and are only sercured by returning a signed contract along with your paid booking fee of £100 which is detucted from your total.
How do I book your services?
After responding to an intitial enquiry form via email, a final count of services is requested and a full quote is sent out to the bride. Your booking is not secure & your date is not reserved until your signed contract and the requested Booking Fee is received. Most brides book their bridal services at least 8 months in advance to secure availability.
Is a trial appointment necessary?
It's recommended to have a trial for 3 main reasons:
How long will my services take?
For the brides makeup services I allow 1 - 1.5 hours. For bridal party members I allow 45 minutes for makeup. I arrive 30 minutes ahead of our scheduled start time to set up.
How do timings work for the Wedding Day?
Once the finished time is establised by you, I will email you a detailed schedule for your wedding day services. This will include time slots for each person's services and also outlines how to prepare for you appointment. Additional makeup artist's can be arranged for early morning ceremonies or for a bridal party of more than 4.
Do you cover skin problems/conditions/tattoos
Obviously your skin is you, and I would not want to change anything about you, so if you do have any skin conditions that you wish to be covered, this will have to be done at a trial appointment, giving as much information as possible.
How do I pay?
Payment is to be made by Bank Transfer from the invoice sent. Trials are to be paid in full at the time of booking and are non-refundable. Wedding Day bookings will need to pay £100 booking fee to secure the date, which is due at the time of booking and deducted from the total. The remaining total is to be paid 1 month before the wedding day. Please read my full T&C's. All of my 2021 rates and packages are non-negotiable.
Will I still look like myself?
The answer to this is always "Yes!" Makeup is to enhance and define a person's natural features, not to cover or change someone's identity.
Are strip lashes included?
No. Strip lashes are upon request in advance at an extra cost of £10 per person and will be tried at a trial appointment. If you wish to have false lashes, it is your responsibility to inform me of any glue (latex) intolerance.
Do I need to provide anything?
I will come to your location with my full kit so I'll need a table or cleared surface to lay out my products & tools. It's better to set up the makeup & hair station in one area (if there are more people) preferably near a window for natural light. A power socket will also be needed. This is for the trial or your wedding day.
What are your prices?
The prices for my level of experience in the Makeup industry are relatively low for London, they will however increase next year (2022) with inflation. With booking my services you get reliability, correspondence throughout, peace of mind and complete clearance in my diary for other potential bookings. To receive a downloadable brochure go to Wedding Services and complete the form. Prices start from £90
If I book a trial do I have to go ahead with the Wedding Day booking?
No. If you decide not to book me for your Wedding Day MUA you will only pay for the work done at the trial.
