Please come with clean hair, washed the night or morning before. Your hair will need to be completely dry but please avoid using GHD straighteners or product beforehand.
Feel free to bring any pictures or photos of looks that appeal to you and bring hair-pieces or veils if possible.
You are never going to be more photographed than on your wedding day so choosing both an amazing photographer and an experienced hair and makeup artist is vital. These photographs are going to be looked at by all your friends, family, children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren so you’ll want to look your best.
An experienced makeup artist will ensure that your makeup is stunning in reality AND exquisite in your photographs. Your wedding day makeup needs to be heavier than everyday makeup for some very valid reasons:
- To look stunning in the wedding photos and videos;
- To last the entire ceremony and reception, without having to be touched up;
- To not be washed away by tears.
A professional wedding hair and makeup artist will ensure that you run to schedule so your photographer can capture all those important moments, including the preparations.
Mariessa understands that many people have sensitive skin and can react to many makeup brands. This is why she has sourced her own makeup range, Georgie. It really is wonderful, designed for sensitive skins and in the past 7 years since Mariessa has been using this range she has never had anyone have a problem with this range.
We would recommend, just to be on the safe side, doing the trial if possible a few months before to guarantee we have no problems. It’s important for everyone to feel comfortable. We can do a patch test also, if you prefer.
