The service I received from the moment I contacted Kerry was outstanding, from arranging a trial and advice on my skin type to the styles that would suit both me and the dress.
Bridal make up is unlike any other make over service. It needs to reflect you, capture your individuality, enhance your natural beauty and look timeless in photos in years to come. And of course, it's got to last through the emotions of the day, and the dance-moves of the evening!
It's for these reasons, and so many more, why opting for a professional make up artist who is a specialist in weddings is always the right choice! We take the pressure away, we fuss, we preen, we organise. We take care of you and your bridal party,
Trusting a professional to apply your make up can be daunting, which is why I offer the highest level of care and attention to my brides, from the moment they first contact me to the day itself. It's both an honour and a privilege to be involved and you deserve the very best on your special day.
The trial was brilliant, with great skin advice and she created a perfect look that I wanted. Kerry also did a trial for my mum too which was brilliant and it really suited her!
For your bridal trial, I invite you to join me in my purpose built home studio in Preston, where the kettle is always on! Over the course of the appointment, we'll have a good chat about your personal style, take a peek at your wedding dress, talk about your colour scheme, venue etc. As a make up artist, I like to imagine the whole picture: each bride and each wedding is unique.
I also ask about your make up preference, likes and dislikes, and how you envisage your make up to look. But don't worry if you've not really thought this through...together with my trained eye, experience and kit of wonders, we will create a look that is most beautifully, most perfectly you. Plus I can offer advice on skincare and make recommendations for lipsticks and other products you may wish to purchase for the day.
During the trial, I will also create a time plan for the day of the wedding, so you'll know when I will arrive, and the times each lady will have their make up applied (in co-ordination with your hairdresser/photographer etc). And don't worry, I always allow plenty of time to dress/drink prosecco/take selfies!
The Wedding Day
Kerry went above and beyond: not only there as a make up artist but it felt like she was a friend. She helped with general running of the morning, and really helped to take away my wedding morning jitters!!
The big day has finally arrived. You've hardly slept, people are arriving and emotions are running high! Wedding mornings can be a little overwhelming and stressful, and that's ok, in fact it's quite normal! With me as part of "Team Bride", I can promise you, I'll do my very best to keep you calm, relaxed and on time! All you need to worry about is keeping your prosecco glass topped up!
As I've already mentioned, at the trial, you'll be fully prepped with the plan of action and lots of advice for on the morning of the wedding, whether getting ready at home or at the venue. When I arrive, I will set up my kit, grab a quick brew (always love a brew!) and get cracking!
Once the hair and make up process is complete and it's time to dress, I'm still there to offer help and support. I'm a whizz at dressing brides, popping on mums hat and pinning on dads corsage. Showing bridesmaids how to hold their bouquets, even bribing little ones with sparkly lip-gloss. Nothing is too much trouble, and often I've thought of things before you do. I don't leave until you do: ALWAYS on time of course!
