Chloe is based in the Midlands but on request will travel nationally and internationally.
During our first meeting we will discuss your wedding in detail. I love hearing all about the wedding this helps me build up an idea of how you want to look on your wedding day. Feel free to bring photos of anything to do with the wedding and ideas for makeup, we can discuss these further and create the perfect timeless look for your big day. It’s important to look like an enhanced version of yourself on your wedding day not a completely different person, so we will take into account what you normally do with your make-up. Choosing your wedding makeup is almost as important as picking your dress. A pre-wedding trial is a must as it is important to get the look correct for the special day, also to ensure everything wears perfectly on your skin. We will also talk through the logistics for your wedding morning. Chloe can makeover a maximum number of 8 clients in a wedding party. If your wedding party exceeds this Chloe will need to bring in another artist to help on the wedding morning.
Once we are happy with the look, I will note down products and techniques used and take photos to accompany the notes, so it’s easy to recreate your chosen look on your wedding day.
Trials generally take around 2 hours but there’s no time limit as I won’t leave you until you have created your ultimate bridal look. They take place either at my private studio or in your own home between Monday-Friday. I suggest trials take place around three months before your wedding.
On the day
On the day I will arrive at your chosen venue with plenty of time to set up. It takes around 1 hour for the bride and 30-45 mins per full makeup for others in the wedding party. Makeup will be applied to the bridal party first, the bride will generally have makeup applied last on the wedding day so it remains as fresh as possible. It depends how you are having your hair to whether makeup is applied before or after your hair is styled, this can be discussed on the trial. I will leave enough time to check & top up lips before I leave you. I will bring everything I need with me including a chair & lighting if required.
I suggest having completed hair and makeup around an hour before the ceremony so you are left with enough time to get into your dress, have photographs taken and enjoy your time.
There is a minimum booking number in busier periods of the year.
Products I use in my kit include Mac, Bobbi Brown, Urban decay, Charlotte Tilbury, Temptu, Nars, Illamasqua & Benefit. I am not affiliated with any makeup brand, so this enables me to choose the best products from each brand. I’m Mac, Bobbi brown, Nars and Illamasqua Pro member and fully insured so you are in safe hands.
Chloe does not style bridal hair but will be happy to recommend specialist bridal hairstylist who she works closely with.
