Frequently Asked Questions

Are you insured?

Yes i have Public Liability insurance, please ask if you need a copy as i know some venues request them

Do i pay for Travel?

Yes i charge 60p Per mile after 10 Miles from my address which is the same for the return journey, this is applicable for the Trial and the wedding day.

Should i come without make up for the Trial?

It can be helpful for you to come to the trial with your usual make up on so i have an idea of what your comfortable with.

What products are used?

The Majority of my kit is Bare Minerals, i only use high end products for my clients. If the client has a specific request i am happy to discuss this.

What information is needed?

  • Name of the client;
  • Date that the services are required for
  • The time that the client needs to be ready for
  • Name and address of the venue where our services are required
  • The actual services required and for how many people
  • Any important information we should be made aware of, such as: a particular makeup, if there any specifics about the client’s skin that are important, if there are any sensitivities to particular products, etc.

How do i secure my booking?

To secure a booking with me i take £50 deposit, either at the trial or anytime before. This secures my availability on the agreed date and time. The deposit is deducted from the final amount due. Enquiries for which a deposit has not been paid are not confirmed and therefore my availability cannot be guaranteed

What is your cancellation policy?

Deposits will be fully refunded if I am notified 12 weeks before the wedding date, the deposit will be retained if less than 12 weeks notice is given.
For all other bookings no charge will be incurred if we are notified of the cancellation 24 hours or more before the booking date, the full charge for the booking will be incurred if less than 24 hours notice is given.

When should i have my Trial?

I would recommend between 3-6 months before the wedding day, trials can be booked as far in advance as required. It will be the clients responsibility to inform me of any reactions they may have to the products used so I can make sure these products do not get used on the day.

How long does the make up take?

Bridal make up takes approx 1 hour on the wedding day and for anyone else approx 30-45 mins. I always advise my clients to schedule more than enough time for hair and make up the morning of their wedding.

Booking Terms & Conditions

Your wedding date is only confirmed when the deposit is paid on the day of your trial. If you  would like to reserve the date anyway your welcome to do this before the Trial which is non-refundable

Clients responsibility

It is the Client’s responsibility to inform me of any potential issues such as, but not limited, to medical conditions, allergies, and/or sensitivities. I cannot be held liable for any condition that arises, or loss incurred by the Client if the Client has not informed the Me and/or a Team member of any known conditions as stated above, or of any conditions unknown to the Client at the time of the service.

I reserve the right to cancel the Agreement if the behaviour of the Client is deemed inappropriate and/or if the Client reports a condition that I deem as a risk to the Client’s health and wellbeing. In these cases any payments that have already been made by the Client for the service are nonrefundable.

My Responsibility

I will always endeavour to honour the Agreement to the best of my ability.

There may be circumstances beyond my control where I may be unwell, delayed or otherwise unavailable, sometimes at short notice. In such a case I will inform the Client at the earliest convenience and endeavour to make favourable alternative arrangements if possible.

Photography and use of images

Photographic/video images of the Client, Party and/or Event will not be used by the Company in promotional material unless the Client’s express permission has been granted.


I've worked in many wonderful venues and locations over the years.  My range includes anything within 10 miles as standard, but I'm happy to travel further (see FAQ's for more).

I've put together some pages of venues I've worked in certain areas and some additional beautiful venues nearby.  Of course, most of my brides get ready at home or in a hotel before hand, so there are many more venues not included.
