A trial is when we meet to discuss your special requests and ideas for how you wish to look on your big day. Together we will try out colours and textures and decide upon the perfect look for you.

Our clients are normally comfortable with the way they look, but usually want to ‘enhance it’ rather than alter it. They are aiming for natural radiance which will last throughout the day. Working together we can easily achieve this.

Firstly we will talk about the colour of your gown, your flowers, your hairstyle, headdress and veil. We will also talk about the time of year and the time of day your wedding will take place. All these things are vitally important to achieve the look you desire.

Then your hair will be styled and makeup applied.

Once you are completely happy with what you see, every detail will be photographed and noted. This is to ensure that you can be confident and relaxed on your wedding day.

If you wish for something more than a natural makeup, we specialise in the ‘Vintage’ look.
