Your wedding is one of the most amazing days of your life. Your chosen look will be witnessed by those you love and captured in your photographs forever, so it's important you choose a makeup style that makes you look & feel breathtakingly beautiful.
Bridal makeup is not just about applying makeup, it is truly an art. I take into consideration the style and theme of your wedding, the colour and style of both your gown and your bridesmaids' gowns, your flowers, the timings of your wedding morning & ceremony, as well as your own unique personality and features, creating a look that is both the very best and the very essence of you.
At least 6 weeks prior to your wedding I highly recommend we meet for a makeup trial. Trials can be held in your chosen location and usually last an hour & half to two hours. At your trial we will discuss your ideas, the details of your wedding such as the style, theme and colours, then I work closely with you to create the perfect makeup for your big day. Throughout the trial I will make notes on everything we discuss and which of the products I have used and after the trial I take snapshots of you so I have a visual record of the look created. This ensures that your chosen look can be perfectly recreated and you're relaxed and confident ready for your wedding day.
On your wedding day I travel to your chosen location to re-create the look that you will have decided upon at your trial.
I allow just over an hour for the bride and approximately 45 minutes each for bridesmaids and mothers. Makeup is preferably applied once hair has been completed and before any dresses or finery are put on.
I will stay with you as long as you need me - departing only after ensuring you & your bridal party are looking and feeling absolutely gorgeous & picture perfect and you are ready to walk down the aisle!
