How far in advance should I book you?
My diary is open two-three years in advance, so currently until the end of 2023.
However, if you get married on a Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Bank Holiday anytime between April-Oct, I would advise booking ASAP. These dates book up super quick!
Dates can be secured with a small deposit and then that's you in the diary.
Do you travel/are you mobile?
I travel all over the UK and abroad for weddings and photoshoots. Distance is no problem. I've covered Weddings as far as Mexico before!
I do ask for any distance of 1.5 hours from my location within the UK that accommodation is provided the night before. For abroad bookings, Flights & Accomodation are to be covered also.
For Trials, Prom Bookings, and Occasion Makeup, all appointments take place at my salon; The Blossom Rooms, DN17.
How many Makeup's can you do on a Wedding Morning?
This is all based entirely on your ceremony time, and the time you need to be ready for. I allocate between 45-60 minutes for the Bride, and 30-45 minutes per additional person.
How far in advance should I have a trial?
You don't want to be having trials a year or two in advance. Think how long you have to wait, change your mind, find new ideas, even get a dress. Ideally book your trial for when you have your dress, and a good idea of the type of style you are opting for with hair, makeup, flowers and decor. 1-6 months is ideal. All trials take place on weekdays Tues-Fri, all subject to availability. I do have 60+ Brides a year so these are all bookable online, at your leisure.
Are trials a seperate charge?
Trials are around a 1.5 hour appointment using my full kit and trying one look, or two if we have time. If you require additional trials you can always book as many as you feel you need.
How much are your services?
A Brochure is available on request, and can be requested through my Enquiry Form, or via my Social Media platforms & Email. This Brochure include's a full indepth Bridal Detail, as well as info on Trials, Deposits, and the full service I offer for Bride's.
Can I have a trial before I book?
Of course you can!
However I do not save dates without a deposit due to high demand. Without saving a date you run the risk of attending a trial and then your date already being fully booked. I do this to keep it fair to every Bride, and so numerous date's aren't saved and Bride's potentially loose out on bookings for their Special Day.
How often do your prices increase?
They are updated Yearly. My kit is very expensive and of the best quality on the market. I spend thousands each year on both training and my products, as well as keeping up to date with trends, knowledge, and striving to be the best around. I am also featured in VOGUE, as well as being multi-award winning. My prices reflect my accolades, talent, skill, and service.
I need help with my Skin!
I offer free consultations for my skin sessions and treatments, and after treatments I can offer advice, product recommendations etc.
I also provide Skin Advice and Help for my Bride's.
I can't however give advice on skin I have not seen, haven't treated, or without knowing medication, product and skin history.
Can you send me some photographs of the style I want?
Unfortunately after now completing hundreds of weddings and having clients every week, you can imagine my portfolio is huge. I simply wouldn't have the time or resources to be able to send exact images of a style you describe.
There are however hundreds of images across my Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Website for you to browse through. A style to suit every Bride!
Do you do hair?
I'm afraid not. I have never advertised hair, and although many offer both hair and makeup, I do not. I'm frankly useless!
I stick with what I know, and what I am good at. I can however recommend SO many incredible hairdressers that I have worked alongside.
