I have a high demand for my services all year round and if you would like me to be your makeup artist, please do get in touch as soon as you have set your wedding date. I get booked up to 18 months in advance in some cases, particularly for Saturdays from March to September, so it’s never too early to make contact. From 2020 I will be booking a maximum of 30 weddings per year so that I can offer more attention and exclusivity to each individual bride, so if you would like me to be your makeup artist, please do get in touch soon.
Your trial is the time for us to meet and discuss your requirements and what kind of look you would like for your wedding day. The trial will take place at my custom studio in Melton Mowbray which is equipped with colour correct lighting and professional photography equipment. We will first have a chat over a coffee and you can look through my portfolio books. You can show me any ideas you have of your own and then we will set about creating your ideal makeup look. I have lots of styles of strip lashes for you to try and your trial can take up to two hours. I encourage you to come to your trial wearing your usual day makeup and at the end of your trial, I will take professional photos so that you can see how your makeup will look under different lighting conditions. I will keep a record of all products used so that I can recreate your look on the wedding day.
I prefer the trial to be all about the bride so while I welcome you to bring someone for support, any additional trials for mums or bridesmaids will take place on another day.
I recommend booking your trial as soon as possible. This gives us time to meet and for me to assess your skin and recommend any skincare in the run up to your wedding.
Trial payments are payable in advance at the time of booking. Please note that I don’t accept wedding bookings without a trial.
On the wedding day I will arrive at your home or venue and set up my makeup station. I bring colour correct lighting with me, as well as a tall chair. Please allow a full hour for your makeup application which will start with skin prep using skincare from Bobbi Brown, Charlotte Tilbury and Dermalogica.
Included in the price of your bridal makeup:
I will stay with you until one hour before your ceremony time to ensure that your makeup is as fresh as possible.
I take on bookings of a bride and up to three other people. If you require makeup for more than yourself plus three others, I will bring one of my team who will make up the additional people.
