Preparing your perfect look on your Wedding Day often starts months before the big day itself. Often for Brides it can be the first time they employ the services of a Hair and Make up Artist, and this can be quite a daunting task, full on uncertainties about how you want to look on your big day, what you can do to help prepare yourself and what styles will accentuate your features and make you feel and look beautiful on your Wedding Day. This is exactly what Hair and Make up Artists are here for – to provide good, sound advice based on their experience of working with many Brides, and to make sure that you look your best on your big day.
I live in Bowness on Windermere, Lake District, Cumbria, and work with Brides in and around the Lake District, Cumbria, and the surrounding counties in the North West of England including Lancashire, Cheshire and Merseyside. I am willing to travel further afield than this, to other parts of the country, and internationally, although additional travel costs (and accommodation if necessary) will have to be included in my charges.
This depends on a number of factors, including the time of day you are getting married, and what services you and your Wedding Party requires (hair and / or make up etc.). I do have a number of local and reputable freelance Hair and Make up Artists that I regularly work alongside that i can bring along to help with larger Wedding Parties when necessary, but I cannot guarantee their availability - please email me for more details.
The trial is necessary, as it allows us to try different styles and fashions to perfect your look for your big day, and it takes a lot of the stress (for you and me) out of the wedding morning, where you really want to be relaxing as much as possible. In certain circumstances I am willing to go ahead without a trial, but we must allow additional time on the wedding morning for a consultation.
The Trial will take place in my Salon which is within The Snug which is within the Health Club and Spa at the Low Wood Bay Resort and Spa, Ambleside Road, Windermere, Cumbria, LA23 1LP.
For Hair and Make up I would usually allow two hours for the trial - this will give us plenty of time to try out different styles and fashions to make sure we have got the right look for your wedding day.
So far in my professional career as a mobile Wedding Hair and Make up artist this situation has never occurred. In all cases I will try my hardest to safely get to your wedding location, and I will be in contact with you at all times should any problems occur.
Usually I recommend that we have the trial approximately 6-8 weeks before your wedding day, and after you have chosen your dress and any hair / beauty accessories you intend to wear on the day.
I use the best hair and make up products on the market, including MAC, Bobbi Brown and Illamasqua.
Yes, this is fine.
If you decide to cancel your booking then you must notify Katie Dale in writing as soon as possible. Any monies already paid at the time of cancellation will be non-refundable.
If written notice of cancellation is received 2 weeks or more in advance of your wedding day then no further payment is due. If cancellation is received within 2 weeks of your wedding day then full payment is due (for all services included in our agreed quotation). The only exception to this is if I manage to book an alternative client for your wedding day - I will make every effort to fill the time slot.
For the price I have quoted, I am willing to travel 25 miles from my base location in the North West of England. Mileage is charged at £0.50 per mile thereafter. Please contact me for details.
A £50 deposit is required to secure the booking. This deposit is non-refundable but fully redeemable against the balance. Payment for the trial day, less any deposit already paid, is required on the day of the trial. Full payment for the wedding day can be made following the trial day or on the day of the wedding
This is completely fine, and I work with clients of all skin types. The make up products that I use are generally fine for most people with sensitive skin, but i recommend that we meet in advance of your wedding day (and possibly in advance of your trial day) to perform a skin test for the make up products that i will be using to see if your skin reacts to it in any way. If it does then we can find an alternative product to use, or use a product that you know works well with your skin type.
