Terms & Conditions


The following expressions have the following meanings:-

  • “Stylist” refers to Hair Stylist or Makeup Artist
  • “Client” refers to the person or persons responsible for the booking (usually the Bride) and the members of their party.

A booking fee of £100 is required to secure the wedding date. If the booking requires more than one Stylist, an additional booking fee of £25 for each additional Stylist will be required.  Additionally, if the booking requires any Assistants, there will be an additional booking fee of £50 for each Assistant required. Please note that the booking fee is non-refundable.  The booking fee covers the administration involved.  The wedding date can only be reserved with the completed booking form and booking fee. By proceeding, the Client accepts these Terms and Conditions.

Please note: an enquiry does not secure the date – only receipt of the booking fee and completed booking form will reserve the date and is an acknowledgement that the Client accepts these Terms and Conditions.  

Booking confirmation will only be sent once the applicable booking fee has been paid. Once booking confirmation has been issued the date is secured.  Wedding packages quoted at the time of booking and confirmed cannot be reduced but extra people can be added to the package.  

The booking fee is deducted from the balance due for the wedding day which is payable 6 weeks before the wedding day.  If the Client needs to postpone the wedding day booking fees are transferable to a new date if available.  However, prices may have increased, and these will apply.

During Peak Season from April – September a minimum of 4 services are required on the wedding day due to high demand, (this can be hair or makeup or both) otherwise surcharges will apply.  On occasions Assistants are required to assist with larger wedding parties to get ready, the package price quoted will still be payable if numbers fall below the original price quoted.    Depending on your location, travel expenses may apply and is charged at 55p per mile each way.  Any car parking charges, hotel parking, additional expenses or overnight accommodation will be added to your final invoice.  

Surcharges may also apply if Stylists or Assistants are required to work before 6 am.

If preparation is split between 2 locations, requiring a pack up, travel and re-set up a fee may be charged, plus any additional travel fees.
