On enquiries please provide as much information as you can about your wedding day. This is to ensure the correct assistants have been booked to attend with me (should it be required). I will then happily pencil in your wedding day.
To secure your wedding date with me I ask for a £50 non re-fundable deposit to be paid via bank transfer. This acts as a holding fee to confirm my availability to you.
An invoice will be sent to you confirming this. I ask for the deposit to be paid within 7 days of it being sent. If it is not, the date will then become free to others. Once you have made the payment please inform me so I can confirm it has been received. Your wedding day will then be booked out in my diary!
This deposit will be redeemed off of your final payment, not your trial.
Once your wedding day is securred, I will discuss with you about booking a date for your trial.
I do strongly advise that Brides have a trial and that it should be no less than 8-12 weeks before the wedding date. All other bridal members are not required to have one, but if they wish to do so I'm more than happy for this to take place. Trials will be held at my Studio in Broadoak, Rye or your home address but a travel fee may apply.
All trials will start with an in depth consultation. You can tell me all about your wedding plans, visions, dress, colour scheme and more. Then we can create the desired look for you. Please feel free to bring along pictures, hair pieces, veils, tiaras, headbands, flowers, clips as this helps to get a feel for the whole look (don't worry if you haven't got any accessories before your trial, I can help you decide what would be best). I supply all grips, pins and hair donuts. If hair pieces or extensions are needed, they can be purchased through me. It helps to wear a white/light coloured top or dress similar to what you may wear on your Big Day.
Events Hair and Make Up Booking
If you require hair and make up from myself for an event or occasion other than bridal I can take bookings up to a day before if I am still available...but I strongly recommend that you book in advance.
Payments I ask that trial payments are made on the day by cash. Once the trial has taken place and a deposit of £50 has been credited within the 14 days after the trial, an invoice will be emailed to you stating the final amount left to pay. I ask that all payments are paid in full via bank transfer or cash. The remaining amount left to pay for an event can be paid up until the day but I do ask for you to make all payments before I leave (if a payments hasn't already been made).
Hair and make up for all other events can again be paid up before hand or on the day via bank transfer or cash.
Cancellation of Bookings If for any reason you should wish to cancel your wedding date booking your deposit will be retained and I ask to try and be informed as soon as possible so that the date can be re-booked.
In the unlikely event that I am unable to honour my commitment to attend our booking for a wedding or event I will refund any monies paid and try to find a replacement artist.
Photographs I request that you allow me to take any photographs or film records of any hair or make up applications done by myself for promotional or commercial purposes - only with your consent of course! Any photos you do not want to be used will be done so with your wish. I also ask that once receiving your professional photographs (if a photographer is present on the day) that you would forward some to me for the use of my website and other business sites.
