Once you have made the decision to use the services of a professional, organising a trial in advance is definitely recommended. This is your time to discuss and cover all of the various options available. Mood boards, photos and any other references that you like are always good to have to hand. There are plenty of ideas and inspiration in the photo galleries to guide you and Dawn is always happy to discuss any looks that you think will fit your dress style, colour schemes etc. Dawn can also advise on a time schedule that you can share with your bridal party, photographer and anyone else involved in your wedding preparation.
Throughout the trial Dawn will be able to offer her professional advice and support to ensure you accomplish a look that is perfect for you. Dawn can also give you advice on skincare leading up to your big day.
Please feel free to bring along any hair accessories, hair flowers and veils to your trial and wearing a plain white top during the trial is recommended, as this will help to give you a greater sense of how the hair and makeup will look.
Trials generally last between 1-4 hours depending on which services you require and how many looks you wish to try.
Once you have decided on your chosen make-up, hair or both, photographs will be taken and products will be noted to make sure that this is re-created for you on your wedding day.
When booking a make-up trial a £45 deposit (non-refundable) is required to reserve your wedding date in Dawn’s diary. This deposit will then be deducted from the cost of your trial.
Relax!!!! You are in safe hands.
On your wedding day, you want to feel your most beautiful. Dawn uses only the very best premium brands of makeup and hair products to give you the confidence that it will last through your entire day from start to finish.
Dawn will arrive in good time and help you through your morning prep to make sure.you and your party are ready on time. If you have a larger bridal party, Dawn has access to other highly qualified hair and makeup artists who can assist.
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 groom.
Prices include all finishing touches, i.e. fascinators, veil, hair jewellery etc.
Should an assistant be required due to large numbers and time constraints on the morning this is charged at £50 per assistant.
Please note I do not charge extra for Sundays or Bank Holidays, but a minimum of 2 people must be booked for the wedding day. However, an additional one-off consultation fee of £30 is payable for the wedding day should a trial/consultation with the bride not have taken place beforehand.
