Destination wedding makeup

I WANT EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO SITS IN MY CHAIR TO FEEL LIKE A HOLLYWOOD STAR

Bridal makeup is what I do best and there is a reason I get so booked up with it. I am based in my cosy Makeup Studio in Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire but travel all over the UK for weddings and also travel the world offering destination wedding makeup. I have had experience working in Greece, in places like Mykonos and Athens as well as Italy and France.

My mission

I believe bridal makeup is extremely personal, that's why choosing the right artist for your big day can be a challenge especially when booking a destination wedding.

 

Every bride has a style of makeup they like on themselves, so I always try to understand this and use it to create a bespoke look which not only flatters their features but also aligns with their style. This can be a particular challenge when booking abroad, as different countries have very different ways of applying makeup.

I am extremely versatile as a makeup artist which means I am able to cater for all of your bridal parties preferences too, no matter how fussy they are.

I have been able to condense my kit to make it travel safe and mastered the best way to travel with my kit so you can rest easy that I will come prepared for your big day.

I aim to make you feel like the best possible version of yourself so that you can relax on your big day knowing you feel and look spectacular.

Your makeup trial

Your trial is your chance to find out what makeup look suits you, giving you the most jaw dropping makeup for your big day.

You may already have an idea for what you want but I can use my expertise to recommend things that I feel will enhance your natural beauty.

I recommend the trial being done 6-12 months before your big day. At the trial I will take photos and make notes of every product used so that I am able to seamlessly recreate it on your big day. This will give you the chance to see if the products I use work well with your skin and we can alter anything we need to before the big day.

For trials I allow an hour and a half to an hour and 45 minutes to really have time to perfect your desired look and I  perform them in my studio in Water end, Hemel Hempstead. For destination weddings this can be done the day before your wedding if you are not based in the UK or able to travel to my studio. 

You can also book trials for other members of your bridal party at your request. For Destination weddings a questionnaire for your bridal party will be sent before the date so that I can condense my kit and make sure I have all that I need for your bridal booking.

The best time for Trials on weekends is off season, between Jan-March, as during peak season weekend slots may be more difficult to book but I do work Tuesdays to Saturdays. I open my diary for in studio bookings and trials 2 months in advance.

You can book your trial before securing your date if you are hesitant to book before this, however I recommend securing your date before the trial as I am unable to hold the date without the retainer fee so should you require a trial before securing be sure to do this as soon as you can.

Destination expenses required

I am happy to gather a quote for the expenses side of the booking for you with my travel agent and we can organise my travel and accommodation (with your approval prior to booking, of course). You have enough on your plate already.
I do require the following to be covered:

  • Travel expenses to the airport & back in the UK (If I can book London Luton this is my closest airport and I can try and arrange a lift to avoid any additional fees here.)

  • Return flights, including checked-in luggage and carry on luggage (for  both the liquids and powders in my kit.) 

  • Accommodation whilst at the destination of the wedding. Hotel at a minimum 3-star standard. (2-4 nights depending on the makeup package booked)*

  • Travel expenses whilst at the destination. (car hire or taxis / transport)

  • Subsistence for every 24 hours spent away from home. (this is included within my quote so not added on after!)

*Please note I have family in both Florence & Milan so Destination Accommodation fees may be waived for these locations or nearby!

Get in touch

I recommend booking your makeup before or when you book your venue.

 

I have more enquiries than I have the capacity to book and I only take 1 wedding per day so my diary fills up well in advance. Destination weddings require me to be available for the surrounding days around your date to allow for travel, so the earlier the better!

Some of my brides even book me before the venue and make sure I have the availability first. Don't compromise on feeling spectacular on your big day.

My quotes now always include the trial price. If you do your trial before you book, the price paid at the trial will be taken off the final balance. If you are not from the UK we can schedule your trial the day I arrive at your destination the day before your wedding, prior to this we will do a in depth zoom call to discuss the look you want to go for.

For destination weddings the travel fees are not included in my quotes and are an additional expense highlighted in my information booklet on quotation, I have also highlighted them above. My travel agent I work with regularly can get you a quote for this side of the booking on request, we will strive to keep these costs down as much as possible!

My minimum package for destination bridal is £900 and includes the bride and up to 5 others, this is because I will be turning 3 days of work away for your destination wedding. If you require more people this will be added to your quote at an additional fee per person.
