Bridal consultation

There is no time limit on our consultations although they usually take approximately 1.5 hours – 2 hours, depending on whether the bride is incorporating an eyebrow reshape and individual lashes.

The trial is a very important part of the service as its our goal to ensure the bride is 100 percent comfortable with the makeup and hair on the day. We listen to the bride’s views as well as sharing our expert tips and ideas.  If a bride has already chosen colour schemes then it is always helpful to have swatches of the fabric at the consultation so that we can integrate the colours within her makeup.  A selection of magazine cuttings of her favorite hairstyles is also advisable should she have a specific look in mind.  The consultation is then recorded on a face chart mapping out design and products used.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long before my wedding should I book my consultation?

Your consultation can be anytime before the wedding but it is recommended at least 6 weeks before to ensure there is plenty of time for adjustments to be made if necessary.

Antonia recomends between 2.5 months – 6 weeks prior to the wedding – this way its not too far in advance and not leaving it too late in the day.

What happens if I plan to develop a tan after the consultation?

Your pigmentation colour will be tested at your trial and the foundation is selected, however if you are going slightly darker than this can be adjusted easily by mixing a little of a warmer tone to the foundation we used at the trial.

What if I was indecisve about the false lashes and eyebrow shaping and never had them at my trial.?

Providing you gave us at least a 3 days notice incase the lashes aren’t in stock we can apply these on the day, however you would need to allow extra time on the wedding day just incase you changed your mind.  Eyebrow shaping can only be done on the day of the trial OR if you changed your mind last minute you could try to book into the local beautician for quick reshape before the wedding day.

What should we bring to the trial?

A photo or swatch of your fabric and flower/colour scheme of decorations or bridesmaids, photos of inspired looks for makeup and hair if having both

What do you suggest we have in our makeup bag on the wedding day.?

Blotting powder and sponge a must have!, lipstick or lip gloss, eyeliner – cotton buds are always useful too

How much time do we have to get ready on the day? 

To guarantee and comfortable and smooth service we suggest that you are not sitting for longer than 2.5 hours and  this too avoids an early start. If you have a full wedding party we will supply a team to help prepare the makeup and hair within 3 hours max.
