Y o u r  T r i a l . . .

We personally feel the trial with you, the bride, is just as important as the wedding day itself. It gives us the chance to get to know each other, discuss requirements for your hair and makeup and for us to get a feel for the theme for your wedding.
Trials typically take place approximately 8-10 weeks before your wedding day. We are happy to travel to you for the trial if you are based nearby (subject to extra cost) or you are very welcome to come to us if you would prefer to keep things 'under wraps' until your big day. 
We will start off by accessing your skin type and discussing your current skin care regime. We will then work, step by step, on your hair and makeup styling. We will advise you on styles and colours that will work in harmony with your skin colour, face shape and hair type. We will enhance your best features and leave you feeling confident and looking beautiful. 
Most brides already have an idea of what they are after so it would be great if you could email a photograph of your hair and makeup ideas beforehand. On the other hand, if you are undecided and want to explore different options we can trial these at your appointment. For example, don't think just because you have short hair you can't go for a 'hair up' style. You will be amazed how your hair can be transformed with natural looking hair pieces.

The smallest detail can accentuate your finished look. It is advisable to bring any hair pieces and accessories, veils, jewellery and perhaps a photo of your wedding dress and a colour swatch from your bridesmaids dress. The more we have to work with, the more we can finely tune your requirements and make your dream wedding a reality.
If you have any further questions regarding trials please feel free to drop me a message or have a look under our Bride FAQs page!
