PRODUCTS

I use only professional high quality products from established and trustworthy brands. Each product is carefully selected for its quality and suitability to each individual client.

I have cruelty free and vegan friendly makeup in my professional kit too.

Prior to any make up application I will consult with you regarding your skin type and any history of allergic reactions to cosmetic products you may have experienced in the past.

I will work with you and advise you on the suitability of products and what to avoid.

BOOKINGS

For peak season, and at Sasha’s discretion, there is a minimum required spend of £400 excluding travel charges. This equates to a booking for the Bride plus at least 2 others for makeup.

The maximum number of people for a booking is 5, including the bride.

However we work alongside some amazing makeup artists so would be happy to source and book you a 2nd artist (subject to availability) under the same booking. There would be an additional makeup artist fee of £50 applied to your booking.

DEPOSITS

Please note a booking is not secure until the deposit has been received.

A non-refundable deposit of £100 is required to secure your Wedding Booking, and will be deducted from your final balance.

(Special Occasion Makeup Bookings require a £50 non-refundable deposit and International Bookings require a £150 non-refundable deposit).

PAYMENTS

Payments are to be made via Bank Transfer.

The final balance of your booking is due one month ahead of the event.

RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CLIENT

The client shall inform Sasha of any issues that may affect the use of products or equipment. This would include sensitivities, allergies and medical conditions.

The client shall inform Sasha of any subsequent reactions following a trial, so the necessary amendments can be made before the event.

The client must also adhere to all government guidelines in self care and to those around them regarding the Coronavirus.

RESPONSIBILITY OF SASHA

Sasha is responsible for arriving at the agreed time at the agreed venue specified by the client, within good time.

Sasha is responsible for the provision of all products and tools needed unless stated otherwise.

Sasha is only responsible for providing the pre-agreed services, as detailed in the booking form. Any additional requirements must be arranged and paid for prior to the event. In the event that additional services are added on the day, a revised booking form will be sent following the event and any additional balance requested.

Sasha will adhere to all government guidelines regarding the Coronavirus. Health and safety, work protocol and hygiene is paramount in this line of work
which is taken very seriously.

TRIALS

Ideally a trial will take place around 8-10 weeks before the event date and the cost of the trial is included in the non-refundable £100 deposit.

Cancellations of trials within less than 24 hours notice will be charged at the agreed rate.

Unless otherwise arranged, trials are held at Sasha’s home studio (WR4 0NL) and appointments are available primarily on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Trial appointments can last between 1.5hrs and 3.5hrs.

Please wear a white/ivory top or blouse to your trial and if possible, please wear the makeup you would do for an event so I can see ‘you’ made up in your way.

During your trial, I will work with you to create the perfect look for your wedding day, getting the best out of products you know and love or introducing new ideas and techniques to enhance your look.

We will also discuss your wedding in detail, as this will help me build up an idea of how you want to look on your big day, and how I will create your desired look.

You’re welcome to bring along any photos or ideas of makeup looks that you like.

We will take into account what you normally do with your make-up as it’s important to look like an enhanced version of yourself on your wedding day, not a completely different person.

It is not essential for bridal party members to have a trial. However, if they are unsure and would like a practice run because of skin concerns etc, then it’s a good option as it reassures them and is a lovely luxury experience too! Bridal party trials are £70 per person and can last between 1.5hrs and 2hrs.

ON THE DAY

I love the energy of preparing for a wedding but all that excitement can be stressful and that’s not what you’ll want for your big day. Your make-up will be one thing you don’t need to worry about.

All the details of the location, your individual look and any products you will need, will all have been taken care of at your trial.

Depending on the time of your ceremony, I will give plenty of time to set up and complete the bridal party, leaving time for getting ready and pictures.

The bride’s make-up will generally take around 1 hour 15 minutes and 45 minutes for each member of the bridal party.

I will also organise time to make sure you have at least an hour after hair and make-up to enjoy your time, get into your dress and get photographs taken.

I am always on hand to help with any last minute jobs that need doing, whether it’s to help get into your dress, or to top up lips.

TRAVEL EXPENSES

Travel is charged at 50 pence per mile (round trip) from Sasha’s home address (WR4 0NL).

Any Parking and Toll expenses will also be charged to the Client.

Destination weddings or overnight stays within the UK will be arranged on an individual basis.

CANCELLATIONS

If for any reason you need to cancel your booking the following cancellation
policies apply:

INSURANCE

I will do my best to rearrange your trial within two weeks. Please rest assured that I always adhere to the highest standards of hygiene, both personally and in terms of the makeup brushes, products and tools I use.

If you would like any further information on my exact hygiene procedures please let us know and we will be happy to provide them.
