If you are here, then I guess you are considering hiring a makeup and hair artist for your wedding day. So, what’s the first step? Get in touch! I invite all clients to an informal chat over the phone or Facetime, which is usually a 20 minute call to establish your requirements and an opportunity to ask any questions. This is free of charge and there is no obligation to book.
So far, so good: we’ve had a chat and you’ve received your estimate. What’s next? Now is the time to secure your wedding date and arrange your hair / makeup trial or creative session.
Hair and makeup trials often take a couple of hours and are usually the first time we meet. To make best use of this time I encourage all clients to provide head shots (with and without makeup) in advance along with some notes on personal style and preferences. This, alongside the pictures and inspiration you have been gathering is a great creative starting point for the trial as every client and every wedding is unique. I work with all clients individually and I love to create a look that lets you feel like yourself at your very best. Your makeup should feel wonderful and whilst it should be able to withstand all those hugs and kisses that you will be receiving throughout your wedding day, I always aim for a natural and radiant finish. Once your final look has been approved at the trial stage I make notes and sketches that record products / colours / textures and the techniques used to achieve the look. Feedback is encouraged at this stage and adjustments can always be included (often ideas and preferences develop as you get closer to the wedding day).
Now that the design plan is in place it is time to think about the logistics of the wedding day itself. I am very happy to travel to your chosen venue, across North East England and further afield if necessary. I create a detailed plan for your wedding morning to ensure that your bridal preparations run smoothly to make sure you get 1-1 uninterrupted time. Lots of my brides have really welcomed this little bit of calm.
I offer a complete bridal package to deliver makeup artistry, hairdressing and floristry. This is always a wonderful project and very rewarding on both sides as we work with one another to piece together your whole look. In this instance you are warmly invited to your personalised creative session. The session is built around you, combines makeup artistry, hairdressing and floristry and is very creative and fun.
