The object for me when applying makeup is you should be able to see the person. The last thing any of my private clients want to see is another person staring back at them from the mirror.
My 20 years of fashion, editorial, film and television experience give me great knowledge and insight into how make-up performs, especially under pressure, and this is invaluable for wedding day make-up. As a photographic make-up artist I know how the make-up in my kit looks when photographed and I use the best products so you won't get that nasty white ghostly halo. Whether it be barely there make-up or full on vintage make-up I can meet all your wedding day needs from bride to bridesmaids and not forgetting the wonderful mother of the bride.
The products I have in my kit have been tried and tested over many years and is the best make-up I have found for bridal and longevity , although I am always testing new products to add to my firm favourites. All my products are from companies that are totally cruelty free and who do not sell in China which is why you do not see companies such as Chanel, MAC and Estee Lauder.
A trial is recommended beforehand and can take a few hours of us discussing what you are hoping for and what you like and don't like. I like to see things that have inspired you for your wedding day like magazine cuttings, bouquet colours and of course pintrest. It is also helpful for me to see things you don't like so we don't make any needless mistakes! As I am just getting to know you it is really helpful to know when you don't like something so please don't be shy about telling me as I can not fix something if I don't know about it. I really won't be offended.
I am solely a make-up artist and don't do bridal hair but I can recommend a few hair stylists I have worked with on many occasions. I also recommend that your hairstylist comes to you so that all your creative team are under one roof and you don't have to make unnecessary and potentially stressful trips.
I adore doing weddings and thinks of it as a privilege to be part of such a personal and wonderful day and do all I can to make your day start in a calm and happy way. I have had many lovely comments back from my clients saying not only how wonderful their make-up was and how well it had lasted but also what a pleasure and calming effect it had been to have me around. How can you not love your job with comments like that!
My Editorial bridal work has featured in Best Scottish wedding's magazine and I have been lucky enough to be have been involved with The Vintage Wedding Show since it's conception and have done 2 wonderful shoots with them.

- For any dates throughout the rest of the year a deposit of 30% of the total invoice amount is required.
This is deducted from your wedding day makeup and can be paid by BACS, or Cash.
The deposit is required within 14 days to secure your booking, otherwise your date will be made available to other brides. The consultation fee is required at the consultation date and the wedding day fee is required least 14 days in advance of your wedding day by BACS.
Failure to make payment will result in cancellation of your booking.
If booking with a minimum of 3 weeks prior to your wedding date full payment is required at your consultation.
- Cancellation of the booking by myself will result in a refund of 100% of costs already paid by the client. In the unlikely event that I am unable to make your wedding appointment due to personal emergency, act of god, and severe illness I will try to find you an alternative makeup artist whom I highly recommend. They will receive a brief and any products required that they might not have in their kit.
- Cancellation of the booking by the client – Any payments that may have been made will not be refunded. Should you need to cancel any appointment please contact Rebekah as soon as possible.

If the cancellation is made within 14 days of the booking the balance is required to be paid in full.
