Do you do home visits & far do you travel?
We always visit  the bride to be at her home address or any other venue that she has specified, we also cater for weddings nationally and internationally so distance is not a problem.
Please note travel & accommodation ( if required for several events)  is not included  in the price this will be an additional cost.
Which brands of makeup  do you use?
 I mainly use only MAC & Bobbi Brown cosmetics. If you have sensitive skin or have experienced problems with MAC/Bobbi Brown  cosmetics please let me know before your trial so I can arrange alternative suitable products for you  
How soon before the wedding should I book a trial?
Due to volume of enquiries, it is advisable to have a trial as soon as possible, most of my bookings are taken at least 10 months in advance.
When should I pay the final balance?
The balance is payable on the day of your event.

How can I secure my wedding date in your diary?
I can secure a date in my diary on receipt of a 50% deposit. Most brides prefer to secure their booking at the trial in order to avoid disappointment.
What if I decide to cancel my booking?
You must notify me of cancellation by phone  & writing at least two months before your wedding, Please note that  all deposits are non-refundable in the event of cancellation.
How long does it take to do my hair and make-up on the day?
Two hours
What if I need to re-touch my make-up during the day?
Your make-up has been applied to last all day, however I always advise my brides to have additional products handy on them like blotting sheets and lipstick for top ups.

If everyone is having their hair & make-up done, then usually three to four. I will be able to discuss this with you at your trial run.
