I'm pretty sure my friend could do my bridal makeup, or I could even do it myself! Why do I need a professional?
We know weddings are expensive, but your wedding photos and videos are an important part of your wedding and your look will be a lasting image in them. An expert will help you achieve your best look and ensure you look fabulous on your big day, so for your peace of mind, it’s worth hiring a professional.
How will you make sure my makeup lasts all day?
What makeup brands do you use?
I don't like makeup and don't usually wear it, but I still want to look good. What would you advise?
I'm worried that my makeup will look too heavy. How will you avoid this?
How should I prepare for my makeup trial?
Finally, if you have fabric swatches or pictures of your wedding dress and your bridesmaids’ dresses, these would be useful too, so we can look at makeup colours that compliment, not clash.
If I decide to use false lashes as part of my makeup look, how long will they last?
How soon should I book you for my wedding makeup?
I really need help in planning my wedding but I've not got a clue where to start! Can you help?
If you need some inspiration, we can help with that too, by finding out if there’s anything you particularly like or dislike, want or don’t want and coming up with some creative ideas and suggestions for you. By that point though, it’s likely you’ll have plenty of your own ideas!
What happens at a wedding planning consultation?
If you have pictures, photos, colour samples etc., bring them with you or add us to your Pinterest boards so we can see what you’re thinking.
Details of any suppliers you’ve already booked, or would like to use, will also be useful.
We’ll also ask for some practical details such as the date of your wedding, number of guests and most importantly what your budget will be.
Once we know all this, we can start working our magic, sourcing everything needed to create Your Beautiful Day.
