Let Kim help you look your most beautiful on this very special day of your life. Usually Kim will see the bride for her first consultation near the end of her event planning. So things like the dress, the venue, flowers and general ‘theme’ for the day are all decided. This is a great start as it helps Kim to understand the look you want to achieve. Kim believes that a bride should feel like herself on the day, only the most polished, beautiful and elegant version.
Kim is often asked what the process is for booking her services for your big day.
The first step is to secure your Wedding date in Kim's diary as she will only ever do one bridal party on any given day, so once Kim has your booking she won't be available for any other requests. Your Wedding date is only secured once you have paid your deposit.
Please contact Kim for the Bridal Price list.
Secondly, about 1-3 months before your Wedding Day you will have a consultation and trial with Kim which will last between 1.5 to 2 hours. Kim will discuss your dress, hair, colour scheme and explore ideas on the look you want to achieve. Kim will then experiment until she has achieved your perfect Wedding Day look. Kim will make a record of all the products she uses on your personal face chart, along with a photo of your final look, so that on the day Kim can recreate exactly the look you want. If any other members of your Bridal party would also like a trial at the same time, then Kim will be happy to arrange this. At this stage, Kim will discuss and agree timings with you on your big day to ensure make up and hair are all completed in good time.
Finally, the big day has arrived! Kim will arrive with everything she needs to ensure you and your Bridal party are all looking picture perfect.
WEDDING MAKEUP CONSULTATION
When you have your first consultation, the style of your dress will be a big influence on which way the hair and makeup will go. Is the dress boho, classic and sleek, or fairy tale? The look should be a complete one, as a classic french pleat might not suit a floaty dress for getting married on the beach….just as the cut and detail are key. A high necked beaded number might not work well with tumbling curls for instance, so have an idea of what you want and like but this is also the time to discuss and experiment with Kim... and hopefully have some fun whilst doing it!
VINTAGE THEMED WEDDING MAKEUP
If you're looking for a vintage themed wedding, then Kim can create the makeup and hair to suit the era, whether that's jazz, ballroom or rock n roll inspired. The image above was created for a 1920s inspired photoshoot where the fashion at the time was for very strongly emphasised eyes and red lips.
Using Kim's experience to select the best products to use on your skin, she can create that glowing, dewy look lots of brides want from their wedding makeup. This look is especially sought after by brides who don't normally wear much or any makeup, and still want to look like themselves... but better!
Expenditure on male grooming products has exploded over the last few years. In 2012 the UK market for men’s grooming products was estimated to be worth 574 million pounds! This is forecasted to reach over 608 million in 2017. Therefore it comes as no shock to realise that males are taking a much greater interest in their appearance these days and when it comes to their big day, they want to look their best too. So whether they need to even out their complexion, perhaps hide their tired bags under eyes, or just want their eyebrows less bushy and more groomed…yes even men have got into the brow trend, |Kim can be part of their big day too!
Kim believes that Groom makeup is another natural progression of the wedding preparation stage. And Kim embraces this confidence in men, to realise they are just as important on the wedding day as the bride (well almost!)!
