A Bride’s Wedding Day preparations are filled with ritual, tradition and anticipation.

From hair and makeup to stepping into your dream gown every moment is special. ​My sole focus as a Makeup Artist is to make sure you look and feel as breath-takingly beautiful as you deserve.

Makeup Only Trials


Bridesmaids  / Other Bridal Party Members- £40.00

Additional Bridal Trial (If requested) - £80.00


Please note the Bridal Trial is automatically included in the Makeup On The Day price.

I feel it is very important to undertake a Bridal Trial firstly so we can get to know each other, it gives you the chance to see how your makeup lasts and it will give me the chance to see if any adjustments need to be made for the Wedding Day. It is also important we both know the style of Makeup you would like.

Bridal Tutorial / Destination Bride


£80.00​​

(2.5 hours home visit)

Optional Additional 30 Minutes Rate - £15.00

If you want your makeup to look amazing on your wedding day but you would prefer to do it youself well you can still achieve the professional look by having a makeup lesson designed specifically for your Wedding.  A lesson is also perfect if you are a Destination Bride.

Bridal Makeup is far more evolved than your everyday makeup, alot more thought has to go in to the products being used and the techniques involved in the application process. ​​



What will happen in the tutorial?
We will design a tailored skincare routine which will ensure your makeup applies seamlessly.

I can provide product recommendations as well as seeing how you can get the best out of your current skincare routine.

We will discuss suitable Makeup products that will not only last during the day and night but will also photograph beautifully. 

There will be a practical where I will show you how to apply the Makeup and then you will apply the Makeup. 

​You will come away nailing a makeup look which you will feel confident to apply yourself.

You will feel confident knowing what products are best used for your Wedding Day and you may even have a shopping list!

You will learn new techniques and application processes you may have never used or come across before.



If you would like to go over more than one makeup look you can book additional time with me which will be chargeable at £15.00 per 30 Minutes, this can either be accommodated at the existing appointment or on another date and time.

Bridal Trial

When it comes to your Makeup Only Trial I have automatically included this into my costs above, it is so important for us to meet firstly so we can get to know each other but most importantly so we can discuss the stle of makeup you would like on your big day! It allows me to see which products would be suitable for your skin and for you to see how well they last and if you would like to make any amendments for the Wedding Day.

The Trial is usually scheduled between 6 - 12 weeks before your Wedding however an earlier date can be accommodated. We will run through your current skincare routine and where possible I will make suggestions to get your skin in tip top condition in the run up to your Wedding. 

If any other Bridal Party Members would like a Trial this can be accommodated, sometimes it is nice to know what to expect on the Wedding Day and know the type of look they will be having.

       

  Making The Booking
 
Once availability is confirmed if you would like to make a booking with me then I will issue you with an invoice to your chosen email address and a £100 non-refundable retainer fee will be required within 3 working days of the invoice to secure your Wedding Day. The retainer will be deducted off your balance which will not be due until within 3 working days after the Trial has taken place. 

                                                   

  On The Wedding Day                                               

I will always arrive 15 minutes before I start the Makeup to allow me to set up but to also give you the peace of mind that I will be there to start on time. On the Wedding Day itself you will be treated with a complimentary Estee Lauder Eye Soothing Mask which will help to relax and hydrate any tired eyes, you will also be treated to a NUGG Lip Mask which will really aid in keeping you feeling relaxed and most importantly feeling pampered. 

Your Makeup will be the last that I do on the morning as I like yours to be as fresh as possible before you walk down the aisle, after your makeup is completed you will feel relaxed, radiant and ready to marry the man of your dreams.
