Brides Personified like to give the best possible customer service, we believe a large component of this is clear communication at all times between ourselves and our brides.
Below you will find the services we offer, prices as well as how to start your bridal beauty story with Brides Personified. This way you will clearly understand what our service involves and how we operate.
We look forward to helping you and your bridal party look and feel amazing on your wedding day.
At Brides Personified we recommend that all brides have a pre-wedding trial between 3 months and 6 weeks prior to your wedding. This will give you the peace of mind and assurance that you’ll be completely satisfied on your wedding day with your chosen bridal hair and/or make-up look.
Your trial will begin with a consultation, I will discuss the desired look that you would like for your wedding day. Your hair length, colour, skintone, condition, bone structure, style, personality and any themes and aspects of your wedding including concepts and colours etc will all be considered.
Any allergies you may have, lifestyle goals including using vegan only products for your bridal hair and or makeup service etc will also be confirmed at this point.
Please do gather some ideas from magazines, social media, celebrity clippings and pictures as a guideline to your desired bridal look.
From the information you have provided, I will use my extensive training and experience to offer honest, flattering and professional suggestions that will emphasise your best features to create a style that will look amazing on you.
Once we have finished your look we will discuss and make any necessary alterations or restyles until you are 100% happy with the finished look.
For your peace of mind you will have the Brides Personified’s 100% Satisfied Bride Guarantee
Your bridal trial can be held at your chosen location, I can come to you in hotels, functions rooms or your home. Brides Personified cover London, Surrey and most of South East England. Trails further afield can be arranged subject to availably and location, please just ask.
You are also welcome to have your trial at Helen Leonard Creative Studios in Surrey.
We are also able to travel anywhere in the UK or abroad for your actual wedding day, travel charges will apply.
On your wedding day I will arrive at your chosen venue approximately 20-30 minutes early, to check any time schedules that you may have in place (particularly when there are several clients) and to set up my equipment for the day. If I have arranged a team of artist for you we will all aim to arrive together.
Brides Personified take every care a precaution to ensure that your wedding day runs smoothly and perfectly to time.
