Our initial consultation will take place over the telephone, where I will note down all the important information like dates, times, styles, ideas etc so I can make that all important booking for you!
This initial consultation is a great time for you to ask any questions you may have, for us to have an informal and relaxed chat and for me to get your booking all nice and organised before your chosen trial run date.
“My work ethos is simple…my aim is to ensure each and every client of mine feels at their most beautiful, most confident and of course, most glamourous on their special day.”
A pre wedding trial is absolutely essential for the bride to ensure that we get the correct look for your hair and makeup and for me to establish what is going to work best for you, the individual.
During our first meeting at the trial run, we will discuss all of your wedding plans in detail. It is here that I get all those little details together that all help to create your classic, personalised wedding day look.
Please feel free to bring any images and accessories with you as well if you would like to.
If you are feeling a little unsure and possibly a bit bewildered by the whole wedding day beauty process then fear not! You have come to the right place here!
With my 12 years plus of professional makeup and hair experience I can help to guide you down the right path and gently find a look that’s perfect for you.
During the trial run, I will plan a detailed schedule for the morning which is then emailed out to you afterwards.
This is to allow for a perfectly seamless and relaxed wedding morning without a single hitch.
Detailed notes and pictures are taken so the chosen look can be recreated on your wedding day.
Trial’s generally take place at my home, or indeed your own home between Monday-Friday.
I always suggest a trial run within 8-12 weeks of the big day.
“I truly believe a woman’s wedding day is a time of her life where she needs to completely feel at her best, a naturally enhanced version of herself, and absolutely not someone completely different!”
On the big day itself I always arrive at the chosen venue with plenty of time to set up.
Times taken on the day will vary depending on how many are in your bridal party and whether I am doing makeup and hair, or makeup only.
The planned schedule allows for a lovely, relaxed morning where you can really enjoy being pampered and you never need to worry about timings…its all taken care of!
I always finish with at least one hour before the ceremony is due to begin, so there is plenty of time to put on the dress, have a glass of fizz and a few special photos beforehand, then I will slip away to leave you to enjoy your magical day.
On request Joanna can stay for the duration of the wedding if need be…please enquire for more details/rates.
Main products used in my professional kit are MAC, Urban Decay, Charlotte Tilbury and Lancome to name but a few.
I have over 12 years experience now in the wedding and fashion industry as a makeup artist and hair stylist and I bring with me a wealth of knowledge of wedding makeup and hair. So please, do get in touch if you have any questions or queries whatsoever.
