So here we go

What advice would you give a bride when choosing a look for her wedding day?

Make sure that the look you are going for fit your personality and also the style of the wedding. Never go with trends on your wedding day.

Do you have any tips for brides who plan on having loads of bridesmaids?
Make sure to get a professional artist in to do their make-up as well. You don’t want everyone’s make-up to look different on your photos.
How do you determine the wedding schedule to make sure you don’t run late on the wedding day?
We usually work the schedule out as soon as we receive the timeline for the wedding from the photographer, so that we’re not rushed and that the bride have enough time for bridal portraits afterwards.
Are there any question you feel each bride should ask a make-up artist before making a booking for their wedding day?
They definitely need to make sure to look at the make-up artists portfolio and make sure that they want to go with their style for the wedding, because all make-up artist’s work look different.
What should the bride do from her side before the wedding day to ensure perfect make-up?
Make sure to drink enough water and that your skin is exfoliated and moisturized.
How far in advance should a bride be booking her hair stylist as well as make-up artist?
Good make-up artist’s are usually booked a year in advance.
