In some instances, there are options to visit the artist at their studios but this will need to be confirmed when making your booking.

After a successful bespoke hair and makeup beauty session there is a 50% deposit due for the bridal costs to secure everything for you. Payment is due in cash or via bank transfer on the day before we leave.
