Describe your typical process with a couple.
We have an initial email exchange to discuss the date and location of the wedding, the number of people needing my services and other important details. A deposit is paid to secure the date in my diary. We’ll then book in a trial, and I encourage my brides to send over images and ideas showing their vision for the big day – including styles of hair and makeup that they like, but also their colour schemes and the style of their wedding gown and jewellery. We’ll meet on the agreed date for the trial run for an in-depth consultation to design and finalise the hairstyle and makeup look. I’ll style the bride’s hair and do her make-up exactly as it will be on the day to give her as clear an idea as possible how everything will look. If the trial is a success, then final details are confirmed. On the wedding day I’ll arrive promptly with a big smile, offering a calming, happy presence to help get everyone ready in good time. We’ll recreate the lovely hairstyle and make-up from the trial and I’ll be on hand to help with securing the veil and generally helping out so the bride feels totally supported and happy.
