Describe your typical process with a couple.
I will usually meet the bride after she has chosen her dress for a trial. At that time we will try different styles until she finds the one that she feels is perfect for her. I will also talk through the options for hair decorations to compliment her chosen style. Also on that day we will discuss her wedding party, what their hair is like and the kind of style she has in her mind for them. I find out about her timing for the day of her wedding then make a plan for that morning. On the day I will work with the mua through the party staying to put in the veil and check everything is perfect before the bride leaves to get married.
