Wedding Hair and Make Up

 

I am aware that picking your wedding hair and make up can be slightly overwhelming. Here is some information of what you can expect on the lead up to your wedding when booking your bridal beauty with me.

Your Trial

I recommend your make up trial around 6 weeks ahead of your wedding date, this is so your hair/skin is as close to how it will be on the day.Some people do like to book a special occasion make up upon booking to decide I am the right make up artist, then having a full trial nearer to the day. Whatever you choose, your trial is time for us to discuss any ideas you may have, any photos you have ‘pinned’ even ones of your dress/accessories are also helpful to see to give me an idea of a suitable look for your hair and makeup. You may already have an idea of how you would like to look on your wedding day, but if not, don’t worry! I have full kit and plenty of pictures to help inspire you.

A Photo Record

At your consultation, I take several informal photos (which I will then email over to you) of your chosen style so that you can reflect on your decisions later (sometimes after your own consultation with close friends and family!). Teamed with the photo will be a full product list of everything I used so you are able to buy any products you may have fallen in love with and suggestions of anything you might want to touch up on the day.

Booking

To book me for your wedding day just send me all the relevant information regarding your wedding (Location of wedding, amount of people and requirements) and I will send you a full price breakdown. I can then secure your wedding date in my diary with a 25% deposit which will be taken off of your final balance.

Your Wedding Day

Most brides prefer to go for a flawless look that still looks like them, just a more beautiful version! Your wedding day is probably not the best time to try out a new dramatic look. It is important to create a look that makes you look and feel your best whilst equally looking great for your photos. Once applied, your wedding day makeup should last a full 12 hours with the use of various primers and techniques. All you will need on the day for touch-ups will be a blotting powder and a lip stick/gloss.

Your Bridal Party

A consultation beforehand for bridesmaids and/or Mother of the Bride/Groom is not essential but can be arranged (normally at the same time as the bride’s consultation). We also need to ensure that the choice of make up for the bridal party is manageable in the time available on the wedding day itself. This will depend on a variety of factors, including the size of the wedding party. We discuss all this (and more!) at the make up trial. If needed I can be accompanied by an experienced assistant to help with time.

Lastly

…please DON’T worry! You can rest assured that by booking me, everything will be under control! I do around 100 weddings a year therefore I am highly experienced in how the morning works and I will endeavour to make it run as smoothly and fun as possible!

 

There is nothing like seeing a brides face when they look in the mirror after being in my chair – priceless everytime!

Love Notes

Because nobody likes to blow their own trumpet.


  • Rhia, Bride

    “Sian did my make up for my wedding along with my bridesmaids and we were all so thrilled with her work. She made the morning so much fun and an enjoyable experience with memories to last us all a life time. I had so many wonderful comments and it lasted all day long, feeling as good as it did at the start of the day until the end. I had my trial quite a few months before the big day and had changed my mind in what colours I wanted to have and Sian was so accommodating helping me choose what go go with. I cannot fault her! She is a skillful individual who knows her trade….amazing! Thank you!”
