BOOKING A TRIAL

Booking a trial is the best way to hold your date. Once your trial is booked your wedding date is held until 7 days after the trial when you will need to pay your deposit. All trial dates are displayed one month in advance - it is not possible to book further in advance than this. Pre-arranged trials are on weekdays & bookable by international brides or if your wedding is less than 1 month away. Trials are held next to Wembley Park Station. If you wait to book your trial & do not secure with a deposit your date may go. 

The Trial

WHAT IS A TRIAL?

The trial is primarily for the brides. I do not need to meet anyone beforehand to colour match or practice, however, as you plan your look for the day it is important that you know how it translates on your face as opposed to a model's or another person's. Ideally you will be sure about the artist/stylist you want before your trial. Have a thorough look at my portfolio as I do have a distinctive style & make sure that it fits with what you want. For example I rarely use heavy makeup.

---------------------

It's always a great idea to bring someone if you need a second opinion, however the studio is an intimate space. 

-----------------------

Don't worry too much about inspirational images - they can be hard to find. If you have several images they will ideally be consistent in the skin tones of the examples.

-------------------------

Why not book something to do after the trial - you'll be too fabulous for housework.

-------------------------

Below are examples taken from trials.

Always take your own images during the rest of your day as I take images for my own reference & won't always be able to send them.

Booking Your Date

SECURING THE DATE

Within 48 hours following your trial you will have access to the Bride Area where you can book the services you need.

Everything you will need before your date will be here including paying your deposit & balance. 

--------------------------------

I will take over correspondence from my assistants once you have booked. I often work painfully long hours often in places with little reception/internet but I will be as available as possible. The website is relatively thorough with information but please make sure to ask anything at any time, I'm always happy to hear from you. If I'm a little quiet don't panic, I am likely alive & will absolutely be there on your day, it's a small team managing around 90 brides a time but we are very committed to every wedding.

Important Bits

PLEASE TAKE NOTES

Your wedding day is far too important to book anything without fully understanding the terms of the booking. There is a link to the T&Cs on the footer of every page. They are intentionally brief but so very important. If you have any questions please ask before you book.
