Frequently Asked Questions

Please read some of the Frequent Asked Questions to find important information about my service. Still can’t find an answer to your question? Please contact me directly.

How far do you travel for weddings?

I am based in Preston so most of my wedding bookings are around Lancashire, Manchester, Cheshire, Ribble Valley, Lake District, Wirral Merseyside. I will, of course, travel further and abroad if my availability allows.

How many people in my party can I have for wedding hair and make-up on the day?

You can have as many as you like. I have some fantastic make up artist who can support me as and when required for much larger bridal parties.

Are you insured to carry out bridal make-up?

Yes I am fully insured.

What if you are ill on my wedding day and you can't come out?

In the many years, I have been doing hair and makeup I have never been too ill to have to cancel however we are all human. In the very unlikely event, I have to cancel I would call on one of my approved freelancers to step in and save the day. I take photos and notes at every trial and these would all be passed on to make sure you achieved the same look I created at the trial.

How long will the wedding trial take?

Depending on what you have booked the wedding trial can take between 1 to 3 hours.

How can I secure my wedding booking with you?

Once I have confirmed I am available on your wedding date I will send you a quote. If you are happy with the price I take a deposit via BACS, once I receive the payment I will send you a booking form. The booking form is confirmation you have booked and paid the deposit.

What are your make-up prices?

Please send me a message and I will send you a price list.

Can my bridesmaids and mum have a wedding trial?

Of course then can. Anyone can have a trial but there will be an additional cost as only the brides trial is included in the price.

I don't have much hair, can you still put it up?

We can discuss styles that will suit your hair the best and we can always add a hair extensions if we feel it needs a little extra body.

What method of payment do you take to book the wedding make-up?

I request a bank transfer for the deposit and either cash or bank transfer for the remaining balance. Unfortunately I do not take credit or debit cards.

Can I use my own makeup?

If it would make you feel more comfortable I would be happy to use your makeup. I do however have a full kit of high end branded makeup and hair products that range for every skin type and tone. It is entirely your decision.

What hygiene precautions do you take?

I clean my makeup and hairbrushes after every use and I use antibacterial spray for my makeup brushes. Additionally, I carry a little bottle with me to clean them between each person.

I am not sure what make-up look I want on my wedding day, can you help?

Yes of course I can. I would suggest you take a look at Pinterest and celebrities as a starting point and collate your favourite looks and we can decide together which bits your like from each look and tailor them to your skin and face shape.

How do I contact you if I want to book you, or have more questions?

You can contact me via email, phone or Whatsapp.

Can I reduce the price of the wedding package if I don't include lashes?

Unfortunately no, they are complementary and it is completely your choice if you wish to have them or not.
