We’re sure you’re both more than capable of applying makeup, but this is YOUR day and one where you will probably want to enjoy the time together rather than worrying about getting your foundation right!

Your photos and videos will be an important part of your wedding and you’ll want to look fabulous in them. Hiring Your Beautiful Day UK to help you achieve your best look is worth it for the peace of mind that you’ll look flawless on your big day.

We love this FAQ! We love, love, love primer and setting spray. A variety of premium brands in our kit ensures your make up is not going anywhere!

Current favourites and our go to essentials come from Younique, Charlotte Tilbury, Illamasqua, All Earth Mineral Cosmetics & Urban Decay to name a few! Fabulous products that really work and last the day and night of celebrations! The brands we choose suit the variety of skin types, tones and requirements of our clients. The brands we use are all cruelty-free, and some of them are vegan-friendly or have a vegan-friendly range. If there’s a brand you’d like to use (or even avoid!) then please let us know.

As soon as you’ve confirmed your wedding date, please let us know as our diaries get very busy very quickly!

At Your Beautiful Day UK, we know the essential things every wedding needs to ensure it’s a success, and we work with you to sort the basics before adding extra little touches that make it personal to you.

If you need  inspiration, we can help with that too! We’ll start by finding out if there’s anything you particularly like or dislike, want or don’t want and come up with some creative ideas and suggestions. By that point though, it’s likely you’ll have plenty of your own ideas!

At our initial consultation with you (and your partner if you wish!) we want to hear all your ideas, no matter how random, to get a picture of how you envisage your wedding.

If you have pictures, photos, colour samples etc., bring them along 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 need to know the essentials! Wedding date, 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.

We cover all areas of the UK and look to find the lowest cost of getting to you. When we start discussing the services you’re looking for, we’ll ask for the essential of where you’ll be getting ready, so we can include any travel expenses in our quote.
We charge travel expenses when we come to do makeup trials and makeup on the day, visit wedding venues to make plans  and when a member of our team is there to coordinate your day. Don’t worry, we’ll always make it clear exactly what we charge for on our invoices, so there’ll be no surprise costs. 

We try to make it as easy and pain-free as possible for all our clients. We are on hand to help you work out what is essential and what maybe is nice to have! With our makeup services, we ask for a 50% deposit, payable at the time of booking to secure your date, with the remaining balance due 6 weeks before the wedding. 

For our wedding planning services, we charge a 25% deposit to secure the date, payable at the time of booking. We then ask for 75% of the remaining balance to be paid 4 weeks before the wedding. After your wedding, we issue a final invoice for the remaining amount, payable within 7 days, so any extra charges or refunds that arise in the final month are accounted for.

We’re happy to discuss this further, so please do ask us.
