THE WEDDING DAY
WHAT HAPPENS ON THE WEDDING DAY ITSELF?
On your wedding day you want to feel and look your very best and so having perfect bridal hair and makeup is highly important. You will be able to sit back and relax on the day with the confidence that you are in my capable hands.
To guarantee your day goes according to plan and is as stress-free as possible, I will make sure that everything is prepared and organised. I will also send you over a time schedule prior to the wedding day so you and your bridal party will know exactly what time they are needed.
I want your wedding hair and makeup experience to be as enjoyable as possible. I will make sure that you feel relaxed, pampered and prepared to enjoy your special day.
As an experienced wedding hair and makeup artist, I understand how hectic the morning of your wedding can be and so I am on hand to help out with anything I can, from helping out with the dress to making a cup of tea!
Last minute touch-ups will be made before you leave for the ceremony, to ensure you look your best in your photographs and for your partner.
HOW LONG SHOULD I ALLOW FOR HAIR AND MAKEUP ON THE WEDDING DAY?
I usually allow the following times for wedding day hair and makeup:
Bride Hair and Makeup: 2 hours
Bride Hair Only: 1 hour 10 mins
Bride Makeup Only: 50 mins
Bridal Party Hair and Makeup: 1 hour 15 mins
Bridal Party Hair Only: 40 mins
Bridal Party Makeup Only: 35 mins
To make things a little easier for you and to ensure the wedding morning runs as smoothly as possible I will send you over a schedule prior to the wedding day allocating hair and makeup slots for you and your bridal party. I allow 30 mins set up time before starting with the first service to ensure I am organised and ready to go. I usually start with all the hair services and then onto makeup services. This is so that makeup is done later and so stays fresher for the ceremony and gives everyone a bit of a break from sitting in the chair. It is also better for me to concentrate on one service and then the other. Should this be a problem due to bridal party members arriving at different times it’s not a problem at all and I can alter the schedule accordingly.
In terms of order I usually put the bride last in the hair services and then second to last for makeup so that the bride has time to put on her dress whilst I’m finishing the makeup services.
I usually recommend having all the hair and makeup services finished approximately 30 – 45 mins before everyone needs to leave for the ceremony. This allows time for touch ups and ensures everyone is not rushing.
CAN YOU STAY FOR TOUCH-UPS THROUGHOUT THE WEDDING DAY?
This is an additional service I can offer. If you are interested in booking me for additional time on the wedding day please let me know when enquiring and I can add this to the quote for you. Price will depend on the number of extra hours you would like me to stay.
