I understand that makeup is subjective and that everybody has different preferences and opinions. I will use my knowledge and experience to create a Bridal look which is an extension of your own natural beauty.
Although I am MAC, Bobbi Brown & Charlotte Tilbury accredited, I’m not linked to one brand in particular I use a variety of quality and luxury brands such as Urban Decay, Bobbi Brown, Estee Lauder & Dior and more all of which help to give you a flawless look lasting all day (and night!)
Planning your wedding can be a very stressful experience and choosing a stylist to look after you can be daunting. Past experiences, horror stories, or worries of looking ‘over-done’ can completely put you off.
Over the last 8 years I have worked with lots of Brides and their Bridal Parties and I like to think that I leave with them feeling calm, relaxed, happy and most importantly confident. I will always go the extra mile to ensure my client is looked after without compromise.
Trials are taken place in your home or preferred place around 4-6 weeks before your wedding and will last between 1.5 hours and 3 hours depending which service you have booked.
I feel it’s important to have an overall understanding of your wedding day so that we can work together to create a look to compliment you and your wedding theme as a whole. We will discuss products you currently use (if any!) and current skin regimes and skin type to help me determine which products are best suited to your skin.
Here’s how you can help
• Examples of colour schemes, fabics, pictures of Bridesmaid dresses
• Pictures of your dress
• Hair accessories including a veil, hair extensions – Must be 100% human hair
• Images that you like showing similar style for both Hair & Makeup. I don’t mind if you send me 10 or 100 pictures, the more understanding I have the better!
• A rough plan of timings for your wedding day and preparations
• A cream or white top or a colour that corresponds with the colour of your dress
• Arrive to your trial Makeup free and ideally with your hair washed 1-3 days before your trial, we can discuss this further on your trial (everyone’s hair is very different!)
• A voice! Good communication plays a huge part when sharing ideas, opinions, likes and dislikes
Your Wedding Day
I will arrive with you on the day of your wedding at your choice of location – wedding venue, hotel or your home at the pre-arranged time where I will set up my working in area preferably in somewhere which is naturally lit. Where possible I like to start with Hair styling on your Bridal party before moving on to you where I will then continue with Makeup when everybody’s hair has been styled and dressed. For larger weddings where Jasmine may be also working her magic, the order of styling may differ in order to ensure your Bridal preparations run most efficiently.
Timings are dependent on the style however as a general rule I like to allow 1 hour for Bridal Makeup and 45 minutes for other members of the bridal party. Bridal Hair can take anything between 45 minutes to 2 hours but these timings will be discussed and set upon your trial.
Once you are ready and happy I am able to stay to assist to help get you in to your dress and over all provide help with anything to make your morning run as smooth as possible! Taking messages, preparing bouquets, tidying up or locking doors, I know how much there is to think about on your Wedding Day and will help in any way I can to take off the pressure.
After touch ups have been completed I will only leave when you are happy for me to do so and of course when you are happy.
