The path to Wedding Makeup
- Confirm availability
- Bridal Makeup Trial
- Finalise booking
- Enjoy Wedding Day Makeup
If you would like to explore this, please first email [email protected] with your wedding date and time so we can check availability and allocate you a dedicated Senior Artist.
Bridal Makeup Trial
Once availability is confirmed, the next step will be to book a Bridal Makeup Trial by emailing [email protected] (this cannot be booked online).
In the Bridal Makeup Trial, you’ll meet your dedicated Senior Artist who will be creating your wedding day makeup. They will listen carefully to what you would like to achieve and then gradually develop your bespoke bridal look.
You don’t need to bring anything with you, but feel free to bring any images you believe would help, such as inspirational makeup looks, photographs of your dress and how you plan to wear your hair.
Once you are totally happy, your bridal makeup look will be written up in detail by your artist, to be able to recreate it perfectly on your wedding day. At this point you are invited to secure your Wedding Day Makeup booking.
1 Hr £125 15% discount of any product purchases made on the day
We recommend booking the trial about 3 months before the wedding, but you can also book at an earlier point. If you have your trial more than 6 months before your wedding, we recommend you make time to pop back in the month before the wedding to meet your dedicated Senior Artist and review your trial again, to double check the colour choices are still perfect for your skin tone and the time of year.
Wedding Day Makeup
On the big day itself, everything will unfold exactly as planned and your bespoke Wedding Day Makeup will be recreated by your dedicated Senior Artist at our Chelsea boutique.
Your experience includes complimentary fizz or other choice of refreshment and the gift of a lipstick or gloss of your choice from our ready-to-wear collection, to make top-ups easy throughout your special day.
You can relax, safe in the knowledge that your look will represent the best version of you and will look stunning in person and in photos. You will leave our boutique on schedule, confident and ready to enjoy every moment of your wedding day.
1 hr 15 mins £140 Includes choice of lipstick/gloss gift, glass of fizz and optional individual lashes. For best results, we recommend booking any hair services before your Wedding Day Makeup. Bookings outside our opening hours may incur small supplement.
Professional makeup services for wedding guests
Weddings are big events for everyone involved, so our professional makeup services are in-demand for wedding guests and members of the bridal party such as mother-of-the-bride, mother-of-the-groom and bridesmaids.
If your makeup style is very light-touch and you want to look yourself, just polished and extra specially pretty, book our Light Makeup Service
40 mins £70
If you prefer a full, more glamorous makeup look – especially if you like a smoky eye or false lashes – instead book in for our 1-hour Event Makeup Service
1 Hr £95 Includes optional individual eyelash application.

Frequently Asked Questions from Brides-To-Be
Do I need a makeup trial?
Although our artists can create beautiful looks at the drop of a hat, we do advise every bride-to-be who has a specific vision of her look in mind to invest in a makeup trial. It makes such a difference to meet with your Senior Artist and have the chance to try different options. So on your wedding day you can totally relax, confident that there will be no surprises and your chosen look will be recreated exactly.
My wedding is really early, can you still do my makeup in store?
Our boutique is open 10am-6pm Monday-Saturday but our friendly team of Senior Makeup Artists are flexible with notice and can accommodate earlier appointments on request. Bookings before 10am will occur a supplemental charge
Will my Bridal Makeup last all day?
Our Senior Makeup Artists are experts with years of experience and will make sure your makeup stays in place by applying the correct products for your skin type. Your Wedding Day Makeup experience will include a gifted lipstick to touch up your lip look as needed; your artist can also recommend specific additional products for you to purchase for any shine control such as our Silk Touch Perfecting Powder.
