Describe your typical process with a couple.
I only see the bride and sometimes members of the brides party. A trial/consultation takes place at my studio in Chippenham, we have a chat about the brides likes, dislikes, theme and colour scheme of wedding, hair type, style, skin type and style of makeup so that I get a real feel for what the bride wants. I allow 2 to 3 hours for hair and makeup trial. Once the bride is happy to go ahead we look at her schedule for the day and confirm timings. On the day I arrived at the agreed time to set up and then proceed with making everyone beautiful.
