Bridal Terms and Conditions

Service Agreement and Information for Bridal Makeup

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Many thanks for contacting me and your interest in my providing the makeup services for your special day. I can assure you I will do everything within my role as Makeup Artist to ensure you look and feel your most beautiful.

I am sure you will have signed many contracts and agreements with caterers, venues and dress shops leading up to the main event and this document is no different so both parties have clarity as to what the agreement entails. Some of the language used in this agreement is intentionally light hearted however the agreement is important for both you and I, to ensure all runs smoothly.

Getting to know you… “The Trial”

This is the part where we get to meet and you tell me all about you. This is your opportunity to ask as many questions as you wish and try the makeup you will hopefully be wearing for your big day. I have a very relaxed and down to earth approach and pride myself on building a good relationship and communication with my clients. I will be led by you as to what you are comfortable with makeup wise and I will advise you as to what will enhance you and make you look your best both in person and on your wedding photos.

I only use what I consider to be “the gold standard” in cosmetics and all of the products I use are hypo-allergenic and suitable for sensitive skin. The Trial is however an excellent way to try the products I will be using on you for your wedding and ensuring any rare issues with sensitivity can be addressed.

Your trial will cost £45 and last approximately an hour and a half, if you live outside of a 20 mile radius of RM16 there will be an additional travel cost of 45p per mile however I will always agree this with you prior to the booking.

Usually it will be just your makeup which is trialled however, should any of your bridesmaids or other members of your party wish to have a trial also the cost is an additional £25 per person.

Payment for the trial is required either by bank transfer before the trial or cash on the day for all members of the party who are having a makeup trial for your weeding

Please print and read this agreement carefully so we can discuss any questions you may have before booking me for your wedding formally.

  • The Bride agrees a suitable work space will be provided at the venue where the makeup is taking place including space to lay out products and equipment and suitable lighting.
