Its Trial Time !!!

Let’s blog !!

Hey hey

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site and read what I have to say.

Today i am going to talk about wedding trials

All the info I have and share it with you all

Who wants to spend more money then they have to with more then one trial with many different artists …no one does. We all know weddings are costly.

The trial is for both of us I need to see how your hair handles and also how your features take to make up. You will want to see my style and see if you still feel like your self which is most important in my eyes and experience. I hear a lot that your future husbands are not big on make up and lashes but us ladies are , so it’s finding that balance of feeling like yourself but looking a million dollars, pounds or even euros 😉

I think in all my years of doing weddings (about 10 years yikes) I have only had a couple of brides that have not gone ahead with my services which in my eyes are not a lot considering how many brides I have done in all the years.

Who needs a trial you ask ?

Well who ever feels the need… mother of the brides sometimes appreciate a trial just because they know their style and normally they have never had someone do their make up and it may be strange for them, also they might of gone to the same hairdresser for the last 10 years and then someone new touches their hair it’s good to have a practice run in that respect. Even if mums just watch me at the bridal trial they can learn to trust me and my skill knowing they will be happy on the day.

If the whole bridal party want to make a day of it and have a pamper day then that’s also possible. 1 Maid can try out a hair style the other a make up look and of course the bride can have her special time as well. It always makes me happy if you sync the date with a social event and get use of my skills. 😉

Sometimes a bride won’t even have a trial !! Shock horror I know but if they are 100% confident in my skill and trust I can make them happy then I will agree to no trial I do ask for them to read and agree on my t&c’s. This only normally happens if the bride lives too far away and if it’s a very late booking and not much time to fit one in.

It’s important to get a trail date booked in sooner rather then later as my diary does get fully booked up in advance. So I would hate to disappoint.

How to prepare for a trial …….

-I ask my brides to wear a white top to help reflect light as would the wedding dress.
-start collecting images of styles you like , obviously Pinterest is great for this and we can talk over these on the trial.
-you can show me pictures of you with make up on which help me see your boundaries.
-you can also show me your make up bag if you wish.
-and I will ask you a few questions which will help me figure what’s best for you. Don’t worry if you don’t know the answer as that also helps me if you know what I mean.

-clean make up free skin

-clean , product free hair. if your hair is really curly and you want to keep the curl just have it as natural as possible. 1-2 day old hair is best for up do’s but if it gets really greasy quickly then just come with it clean and dry and I can work my magic.

So sit back, relax , let me tickle your face with my brushes and teases your hair into that perfect hair style you had always dreamt of.

You can call me Rebecca , Becky or even Blou i answer to most things , we will have a brew and even a cheeky biccy or 2 , I shall look forward to meeting you.

Lots of love
Rebecca 💋

It’s blog time !!!!!!

I must apologise I’ve not wrote a blog in a few months mainly because I’ve been busy with all my summer weddings and booking in 2019 / 2020 brides next year and just generally running around after a toddler. 2019 is looking busy so far which makes me happy as I truly love what I do

I am also starting to plan a renovation in my garden for a trial location I am converting a old horse stable into a beautiful calm creative space to offer my future brides to come and enjoy there trial in my space. I will
Still offer the service of me to travel to those who don’t wish to travel to me. I will also use this space for future projects I have in mind for my business.

I aim to have it open early 2019 in time for my 2019 trials. So keep a eye out on my instagram stories for all the upto date renovation posts.

Have a great wk end !!! I shall be spending my Saturday getting a beautiful bridal party ready and also doing a trial for a future bride to be.

I will blog again soon I promise

Love Rebecca 💋

my welsh wonders

This year i wanted more weddings close to home and what a home it is, the beauty of north wales i now call home. I keep visiting the most beautiful venues and i’ve been to quite a few in all the years i’ve worked in this industry. the latest one was tower hill barns just 15 minutes from me , hidden in its own beauty i was welcomed and shown to my room for the morning , its always a treat when i get my own room to do the bridal party in. it was like my own little salon for the morning , hidden next to the house and behind the beautiful barn conversion. i like to have time to set up my work area to make sure the morning runs smoothly a coffee or tea goes well in hand at this point. 

It was Stephanie’s big day today along with her 3 bridesmaids and 1 flower girl all adults had both hair and make up done by me. it was a very relaxed morning and ran very smoothly , just what she wanted being 20+ wks pregnant, which was a lovely surprise after meeting her back in December. 

loose waves and fresh flower crowns graced the heads of the lovely bridesmaids. Stephanie went with a updo with a relaxed elegant feel to it. I got to meet the lovely struth photography and managed to get a couple of sneak peak pics a few days later, it would be a pleasure to visit tower hill barns again soon. 

fingers crossed all you lovely brides to be take me there 

bye for now
