HANNAH MAKEUP - BRIDAL HAIR AND MAKEUP ARTIST IN BEXLEY AND SURROUNDING AREAS,  KENT, GREATER LONDON

FOR THE CHILLED AND MODERN BRIDE CREATING LOOSE BOHO  FASHION INSPIRED HAIR AND RED CARPET MAKEUP

Take a look at my bridal styled shoots for some inspiration 

Before booking
Take a look at my bridal styled shoots for some inspiration of some fab shoots ive been part of, they may give you ideas for hair, makeup or even flowers and decor.
Also take a look at my bridal galleries of my previous brides. 

My style is soft glam, with perhaps a fishtail braid added in for a relaxed feel. I love to show off a clients freckles, if you have them, be proud and lets keep the foundation light coverage.  Or perhaps you are the bride who wants to keep makeup super minimal but with a red lip - very red carpet style makeup.

If you like what you see and you think i am the correct artist for you, please send me an enquiry with as much info (date, postcode, time of ceremony, number of people for hair and/or makeup).

We will discuss your styles by email (this is to make sure we are both on the same page about styles and if i am the best artist for you). So please send me any Pinterest boards or images you have saved of a few ideas you like.


Bridal make up/ hair trial

A trial is essential for the bride, this should be at least 8 weeks before the wedding day, and will last for one - two hours for a makeup/hair only trial.
Hair and makeup trial will last around 3 hours. 
Its advisable to have no more than 1 person attending your trial with you, this allows me more time to get to know you.

We would have already discussed your styles by email when you initially booked me.
So at the trial before we begin, we will take take another look at Pinterest or any images you have found of makeup and hair, discuss things you like and dislike, this helps me get a better idea of your chosen look, before i start to work on styling you. 

I always recommend a trial, so you are 100% comfortable with the final look, you need to feel confident and still look like YOU. No point wearing a bright red lipstick for example if you never wear a red lippie and feel like everyone is staring at you (they will be staring because you look absolutely gorgeous, not because of your lipstick colour choice, but you get what i mean).  A trial is also to check you are not sensitive to any of the products. All products in my kit are high end from various brands to create a flawless base that is long lasting. 

Few tips for the trial:
- If you are going to have a spray tan for your wedding, it is advisable to also have a spray tan for your trial (but fear not, if you do tan before the wedding, i always colour match foundation to your skin tone on the wedding day).
- Wear a cream coloured top for your trial, or a similar colour to your wedding dress.   Off shoulder or a vest top is preferable - i can then take more realistic photos of you.
- I recommend taking a photo of the finished look so you can see how you will look on camera. 
- Detailed notes will be taken at the trial to ensure everything runs smoothly on your big day.
- Why not plan a ladies night out after your trial, this will be a test for your make up.
- If you wish to have a second trial to try out different styles, the same cost will apply for the second trial.  
Trial and travel costs are completely non-refundable.
If any other members of your wedding party wish for a trial, please let me know. This can be arranged for the same day as your trial, or if preferred a different date and time.

Wedding day
This will most likely be the most important day of your life and can be stressful, therefore I will arrive early and set up with plenty of time before the first person needs to be in my chair (i always send a schedule to you before the wedding, so everyone knows what time roughly they need to be in my hot seat).  I am known for being super calming and a fun person to have on your wedding morning.  Plus i can always recommend the best songs to add to your getting ready playlist (i love the 90's and early 00).

See my bridal gallery for images of my work

Evening make up service
Evening reception make up can also be booked for your wedding day, perhaps you would like more of a party look or a touch up to look fresh again for the evening reception. Please contact me for a price for this service.

Wedding make up lesson
For brides who wish to learn how to apply their own make up on the day of the wedding, or brides getting married abroad. A one to one make up lesson is a great idea to help you achieve a flawless finish for the day. You will receive step by step instructions on applying your makeup. We will discuss the make up products you already have and I will recommend any products that i believe are a must have for your makeup to look fresh and glowing all day for your wedding.
