Prior to the Wedding day I would advise a wedding consultation. This can be 6-8 weeks before your wedding day to ensure your bridal Hair and Makeup is flawless and everything runs smoothly and stress free. We can discuss ideas and create a look that you feel comfortable with and feel fantastic. I am able to travel to the Consultation address of your choice or you can also come to me.
During the consultation we can spend time looking at pictures, mood books and magazine cuttings you have collected as examples. We can then experiment with different styles and discover what look really works for you, actuating your best features and enhancing your natural beauty, all complimenting your wedding dress.
It is also an important time to discuss any products you may be sensitive to and I can introduce you to my vast collection of Make-up, Beauty and Hair products. The Consultation is also a good time to have your tiara or any Hair jewellery to hand, so we can see how it will all look together.
The Consultation can take anywhere from 1-6 hours depending on the type of look you want.
Once I have created the perfect look for you, I will make a detailed note of all the products used and take pictures of your Hair and Makeup as a point of reference on the wedding day. This is also a good opportunity to see how your hair and makeup will look on camera.
If you have a large number of wedding guests requiring my Hair and Makeup services, I am able bring with me an assistant to ensure everyone gets the quality time they deserve.
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and not only is it important that you look and feel fantastic but you also feel relaxed and have an enjoyable and fun wedding morning.
My role as a hair and make-up artist is to make you feel all these things, I am experienced in calming nerves so all you have to do is sit back and relax and enjoy the day.
I will ensure I am with you at the location in good time.
By this point I will have already devised a schedule of timings to ensure that the preparations run smoothly and are stress-free.
When I arrive on the wedding day and on the wedding consultation I will require a clear space, a mirror if possible, a table for my kit, a plug socket and most important a chair for yourself. Preferably in an area of the room with good lighting.
Hair and make-up for the bride on the wedding day will approximately take 2-3 hours and depending on their chosen look, bridesmaids, mother of the bride etc can take anywhere from half and hour to two hours on the day.
I always aim to finish the Bridal party an hour before they need to leave and during that last hour I am able to stay for any last minute touch-ups and general assistance.
Should you require me to stay until the reception I am able to do this and I can create a bespoke package for you.
I have a variety of Make-up ranges to suit all: Armani, MAC, Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, Nars, Lancôme, Clinique, Dior, Estée Lauder, Y.S.L, Chanel to name but a few.
I provide you with a free lipstick or gloss of your choice for your wedding day.
Individual and strip lashes are also available if required and come at no extra cost.
Hair products tend to be Tigi, Paul Mitchel, GHD and Clynol.
Skin-care primarily being Elemis, Clarins, Decleor and Bobbi Brown.
