Pre-wedding Consultation and Trial
Undertaken 3-8 weeks before the wedding, I tailor this introductory session to the needs of the bride-to-be. It can be carried out at home or a location of the client’s choice, with family and/or friends on hand to advise if desired. The session usually lasts between 2-3 hours. I will want to hear about the theme of the wedding, including the design elements, the style and colour of the dress and hairstyle preferences so that I can guide the bride-to-be towards a look that will suit the overall feel of her wedding.
Some clients will have a specific look in mind while others will want to try out different looks for the wedding. I’m happy to cater to a broad range of requests, I can recommend the right products for almost any look. I will explain how the products work to balance, define and lift the face and create a customised colour palette to subtly balance the shapes and shades of the face. The session will also allow us to see how the makeup looks in different lighting conditions and on camera.
I will run through the bridal makeup routine so that the client will know exactly what to expect and how much time to allocate for the application. Good bridal makeup should last all day and still look good well into the evening.
The pre-wedding session is the ideal opportunity to get to know each other a little and devise that perfect look to make you uniquely beautiful on your special day.
Wedding Day Service
I only take one bridal makeup booking per day, which means that I am there from the moment the big day begins until it is time to walk down the aisle. I will stay as long as the bride needs me. I understand that she may feel anxious so I never leap straight into action. We’ll have a chat, I might help the bride get into her dress or fetch her a glass of water – I want her to feel at ease before I start to apply her makeup so that she can enjoy the pampering on her wedding day.
