FAQ

How long before my wedding should I get in contact?

We regularly take bookings up to 10 months in advance so it's important to get in contact as soon as possible!

When should I have a trial?

We advise that a trial takes place a few weeks before your wedding date. My recommendation is do your trial at your engagement photoshoot or your rehearsal dinner, this way you will look prettier for your events

Do my bridesmaids need to have a trial too?

Not at all. Although your bridesmaids are more than welcome to have a trial, it's certainly not mandatory, if somebody is apprehensive about having their hair or makeup done, a trial often reassures them. Your bridesmaids are also very welcome to attend your trial to ask any questions.

When does a trial take place and how long does it last?

A bridal trial is really relaxed, and it normally takes around 2-3 hours and we work together to create your perfect bridal look.
Trials take place at your hotel room.

Should my hair be freshly washed before the trial?

It's best to arrive with with dry hair, you can wash it the day before your trial or if you prefer to wash it daily then please do. Please don't use any deep conditioners, leave-in products or hair straighteners on the day.

Do I need to bring my veil and hair accessories to the trial?

It's not essential, but if you have them then bring them along so you can see how they look with different styles.

What is the maximum number of hair/makeups you can accommodate on the day?

The earlier the ceremony the earlier the start time. We like to have everyone ready 30 minutes before the ceremony to ensure there is no rushing around, with plenty of time to get dressed and photographed.
We ask for up to 2 hours for bridal hair & makeup. For bridesmaids/other guests approximately 60 minutes for hair & makeup and 30-40 minutes for just hair or makeup. We have a small trusted number of makeup artists that we can arrange to help Gladys on the day to accommodate a later starting time if desired.
