Wedding hair and makeup across East Sussex & Kent
Your wedding hair and makeup is such an important part of your big day and I absolutely love helping brides in Hastings, Eastbourne, Tunbridge Wells and across East Sussex and Kent look picture perfect! I am also married myself and so completely understand the stresses and worries brides have concerning their wedding day. I can offer plenty of tips, not all beauty related, to help your day go without a hitch and I will always go the extra mile for my brides – I have been known to repair dresses, lace up corsets and tie dads’ cravats before!
I’m fully qualified and highly experienced in wedding hair and makeup and offer airbrush makeup by Temptu for those who love a super light, but flawless finish. I want to ensure you look stunning and feel confident in front of the camera and in person throughout your day and I’m committed to creating an even more beautiful and polished version of you, whether you favour a more a natural look or love full on drama.
Mothers of brides and bridesmaids also love to be pampered by having their wedding hair and makeup done too. I can make them feel special with a perfectly polished look, either with or without a prior trial. And don’t forget your younger bridesmaids and flower girls – I will happily glitter and gloss under 10s free of charge on request. Please ask for more details.
I went for my wedding hair and makeup trial with Penny a few weeks before my wedding on 1st June, with my Mum and one of my bridesmaids. We were all instantly impressed with Penny and how easily she could recreate a look just by looking at a photo! She was able to answer any queries I had and gave me some invaluable advice along the way.Jessica Lock, Battle
Your wedding hair and makeup trial
I recommend that your wedding hair and makeup trial is carried out 2-3 months before your big day, although if you wish to book it in earlier that is fine of course. This is because with so many beautiful images so readily available on social media, brides often change their minds about hair and makeup styles right up until just a couple of months before their big day. Trials for your wedding hair and makeup take place at my studio just outside of Hastings, East Sussex.
On the day of your trial, you’ll need to be makeup and hair product free. When you come along, please bring lots pictures of wedding hair and makeup styles that you like – the more the better! It’s great to really understand your ideas and preferences. I will work carefully with you to create your perfect look, making notes of the products and techniques I have used in order to replicate it on your big day. Although trials take place at my studio, on your wedding day I’ll meet you at your home or venue in Hastings, Eastbourne, Tunbridge Wells, or wherever you are getting married in East Sussex and Kent.
If other members of your bridal party wish to have a trial, I can certainly accommodate this. It’s often fun to do their trials at the same time as your wedding hair and makeup trial so you can make a day of it and then head out in the evening together looking fabulous!
If you are considering booking Penny for your wedding hair and makeup then don’t even give it a second thought, just book in before all of her dates get snapped up! I am not one for having my hair and makeup done so was a bit nervous about the whole process in general prior to my wedding day, but Penny put me at ease from the very start when I went for my trial. Her calm nature and great sense of humour made the whole process great from start to finish. Penny did my hair and makeup on my wedding day along with my four bridesmaids’ hair and the results were wonderful.Vicky Furness, Tunbridge Wells
The Big Day
On your wedding day, I will come to your home or venue and spend time with you completing the look that we created at your trial. I will also style and make up any other members of the bridal party who are booked in and don’t forget I’ll glitter and gloss any under 10s free of charge.
To ensure peace of mind, wedding makeup ‘touch up kits’ are now available for just £20. These include:
- a lip and blush colour to closely match the ones I have used
- blotting papers to minimise shine
- a pot of heart shaped mints
- a lucky sixpence.
If you’re looking for a specialist for your wedding hair and makeup, please get in touch. I’d love to help you as I have helped other brides from across East Sussex and Kent, including Hastings, Eastbourne, Tunbridge Wells and further afield.
