Having professionally applied makeup that lasts throughout the day, and photographs well, is an essential for every Bride. This is the day you want to show off the most beautiful you ~ oozing confidence, feeling relaxed and happy, relishing the limelight - knowing you look and feel fabulous!
I would advise that as soon as you have booked the venue you should start looking for your make-up artist - especially if the wedding is between May and September. As a Bride the first step is to book a pre-wedding makeup trial. This is an appointment which would last on average 1.5 to 2 hours - during which we would discuss ideas and try out different looks until we find the one that looks and feels right for you.
Although we will have kept in touch - six weeks before the wedding we would co-ordinate a timetable for the day, decide on start times, get venue directions and decide the running order for yourself, the Bridesmaids, Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom, if they are all to be included. As the Bride, I would suggest you take the middle slot - letting you enjoy the excitement of the morning and the build up to the Ceremony.
I will arrive around 30 minutes before our agreed start time to set up. Working in tandem with your hair stylist, I'll work through the running order, making sure each and every one of your bridal party looks amazing. Staying around until you have your wedding gown on, I'll apply final touch ups and make sure you are happy with everything before I leave you to enjoy your Big Day.
