TERMS AND CONDITIONS
A free pre-booking consultation can be arranged via email, telephone or in person before any money exchanges if required
BOOKING FEE/TRIAL FEE
On booking we take a £70 or £140 booking fee/trial amount that secures your wedding date in the diary until the trial appointment
The booking cannot be confirmed without it
TRIAL CONSULTATION & WEDDING DAY CONFIRMATION
The Trial consultation we will carry out hair and makeup or just one service depending on your booking within the allocated timescale. If you are happy to proceed with the wedding day then 50% of the remaining balance would be due at the trial to confirm you are happy to proceed. If you decide not to choose me for your wedding day you can walk away at this point and the trial amount has been paid at booking and the wedding date will be released back out.
The final 50% balance is due Two Calendar Month's prior to the Wedding.
Any cancellations made within Two Calendar Months of the Wedding would be subject to charges for the full remaining balance including the booking fee due to artists being arranged and other weddings being turned away.
We take payments by card, cash or bank transfer.
Please note your Trial booking is not secured until we have received your booking fee
Please note your Wedding Date is not secured until we have received your 50% Wedding Day Deposit.
If confirmation is not received within 48 hours of the Trial then the wedding date will be released back out and original booking fee non refundable.
I am not affiliated with a particular brand so use a mix of hair and makeup products in my kit but use Cruelty Free clean Products such as Huda, Tropic & Charlotte Tilbury
Please let us know if you have any skin sensitivities, allergies or intolerances.
The trial is normally up to 4-6 months before the wedding date and is carried out at the Styling Boutique based in Witney. This is a private location perfect for a one to one trial consultation. If you do wish to bring one other person for Moral Support this is fine. There is limited capacity for any more on the Trial Day itself and may help keep the Trial relaxing for you. The trial consultation can be booked earlier if requested and I have no problem with earlier trials being booked as long as you have ideas of your dress styling.
If you do not have any ideas of styling we can try as many styles as we can fit into the Trial Appointment set at 90 minutes per service - hair or makeup. If you still are not sure on styling then other trials can be booked at the same rate. If you are trying a few styles please bear in mind the hair would be a far better and polished version on the Wedding Day itself as we would only be recreating the one style you have chosen and not several styles.
Please bring along any inspirational images you have to help show me what you have in mind. For hair trials please wash your hair the night before so that it is easier to style unless otherwise specified and bring along any headpieces or a veil you plan to wear.
During busy periods it might not always be possible for us to schedule trials at the weekend, particularly Saturdays. I tend to run my trials throughout the week in the day time for the best lighting and timing
The trial takes about 3 hours for hair and makeup or less for one service.
At the trial we will work out all the timings for the Wedding Day. We normally allow 2 Hours for the Bride for hair and makeup services and calculate timings on the quotation. The party numbers are then secured within 48 hours of the trial. No Extra Add-On's can be included once the final balance has been paid and timings drawn up. Additional clip in hair extensions need to be arranged prior to the wedding day for any party members. It is an additional cost as it adds to the timings. I can only work with 100% human hair as any other hair cannot stand heat and can melt. Please discuss with all party members before your trial appointment so that there is no confusion on the day.
We do have a minimum booking number of 3 services at busy times of the year particularly on Saturdays. I am flexible on this during week days.
Travel is charged at 50p per mile
