The consultation and trial...
Your consultation and trial is as important as your wedding day as it gives us a chance to try out a number of different hair and make-up 'looks' to help you decide which is absolutely perfect for the big day itself. Before our initial meeting, we ask that you send us photos of yourself and any hair and make-up images that have caught your eye. This allows us to prepare the trial with a specific list of make-up products and any hair pieces, extensions, full/half wigs etc. that might be required. We also ask that you bring any veils, hats, fascinators, head pieces etc. so that we can incorporate these into your different looks.
After the trial...
Following your successful trial we will email you a full overview of your 'look' and a list of products used. We use the finest selection of high-end luxury brands available today for both your trial and wedding day. If bridesmaids and other wedding party members are having a make-over, we will email you a hair and make-up schedule to ensure everyone runs on time in a relaxed and organised environment.
We are happy to do as many trial days as you feel happy with. Please see cost per trial on our rates page. We will stay with you until you and your wedding party leave your home/hotel, to give you those final all important touch-ups. We provide a 'Portraits All Day Service' for brides who wish to go for multiple looks from day to night. Please refer to our rates page for cost.
Should you choose Portraits to be part of your special day, we will request a non refundable 50% booking fee of the total package cost, to secure your date. The remaining non-refundable 50% will be due seven days prior to your wedding.
Hair and Make-Up Lessons...
Portraits Bridal Services include 'Hair and Make-Up Lessons', tailored to you. Popular with destination weddings if budget does not allow you to bring your own team of professional artists from the UK and you are nervous about hiring someone abroad, where communication can be challenging. It is also perfect for brides that like to be in control of their own look. We provide detailed notes and images of everything that is discussed during the lesson, including a list of recommended products, so that you can walk away with every confidence in recreating your chosen 'look'.
