Bridal Hair & Make-up

Creating your dream Wedding look takes careful planning, every detail needs to be considered. Including your individual Bridal style and that of your Wedding party, that’s where I can help! It’s vitally important to discuss the look and feel you’re wanting to create with an experienced Hair and Makeup Artist like myself. I am able to guide you to ensure that the Hair Style and Makeup you choose enhances your features, brings out your natural beauty and ties in with your chosen theme.

The Countdown to your wedding

Preparing for your wedding is an important part of the process. I recommend that we start talking all things ‘Wedding Prep’ as soon as you have secured your date with me. I am able to assess your skin, discuss any concerns you have and recommend the perfect products for you to use. If your skin is looking its best for your big day you will feel even more radiant. Glowing skin is always in!

Your Wedding Trial 

A pre wedding trial is essential for us both so we can get to know one another and work together on your desired look. Having a trial allows you to relax and enjoy your wedding morning knowing exactly how the finished look will be.
No one wants to walk down the aisle not looking or feeling like themselves so my main importance is that you feel the best version of you. We are all different, some people love makeup and wear it everyday, for others it can be a daunting prospect. That’s where I come in, even if you don’t wear a lot of makeup on a day to day basis you may still be wanting help and advice from me on how you can achieve a naturally beautiful makeup for your wedding day. I offer a service for each individual bride, I want to create YOUR dream bridal look!
I’ll be in touch a few months before your wedding date to book in your trial. Trials typically take place 6-8 weeks before your Wedding date. 
Trials take place in our studio in Ponteland. Thursday’s are our TRIALS DAY. I often get asked for trial appointments on Fridays and Saturdays, I can’t accommodate this as these are my busiest days for wedding bookings. Trials need to take place during daylight hours – its so important to see your makeup in natural light. Its helpful if you bring along pictures of your dress, we will talk about the style of your dress, colours of your Bridesmaid dresses, flowers, veil and any accessories you are planning to have in your hair. Together we can then work to create your perfect look. Oh, and don’t forget to wear a white or cream top and come makeup free! Trials last between 1.5 and 2 hours. 
I get just as excited as you do about your big day and I absolutely LOVE talking about your ideas and plans. Feel free to ask my advice, show me your ideas – anytime!
On the Wedding Day 

I am very organised and hopefully that will fill you with confidence. I will prepare a schedule prior to the big day – I like to ensure that everyone will be ready with plenty of time to spare. I usually aim to have everyone ready at least 45 – 60 minutes before you need to be so there is plenty of time for photos and family time and I am even happy to stay for those last minute for touch ups and to attach your veil and hair accessories.

For larger Wedding party’s I am assisted by members of my team, experienced Hair and Makeup Artists who have been handpicked by me. They share my love of creating naturally beautiful, cruelty free hair and makeup

Essentially you’ll only do this once and It’s really important to me that you feel happy and confident every step of the way – feel free to ask me anything. I will always be as helpful as I can.

Claire made me and my bridal party wedding ready with our hair and makeup! My sister and I had a trial prior to the wedding where we discussed our options and Claire took the time to listen to both of our thoughts and created a flawless look, which we both loved. On the day Claire and Jo were amazing at getting us all ready on time and to complete perfection! Even with my last minute changes I added in! My hair and makeup stayed perfect all day
