Your face is your fortune, don’t go for cheap option
Spring has sprung and the lighter nights bring a feeling of tranquillity to evenings - but as a make up artist, it’s the calm before the storm.
Wedding season is about to swing into action. It is busy and hectic ... and I love it!
Having worked in the wedding industry for many years, I thought I would share a few pearls of wisdom with you when it comes to ensuring you look your best on the big day.
And one of the most important steps you should take is to ensure you select an experienced artist.
You will always find the cheaper option, but cheaper is usually not best, trust me.
Here are a few reasons why I recommend you always go with an experienced professional.
We will deliver exactly results you want, while always remaining calm, confident and in control in what can sometimes be a very stressful environment.
We are 100 per cent reliable. Everyone gets sick from time to time but the serious professionals will still turn up. We suffer in silence because we are dedicated. On the very, very rare occasion it is something serious, we will always ensure there is a contingency plan.
Things can go wrong, mistakes happen- we can cope! I once had a bridal party delayed two hours at the hairdresser. Did I panic, stress or say there wasn’t enough time left? NO, I just got them ready in time, keeping everyone calm in the process.
We have seen it all! I have coaxed a crying bride from her bedroom when the stress got too much, sewn a bridesmaid into her torn dress, had someone pass out in my arms... the list goes on. I can handle it. It’s all in a day’s work.
It is work though and we take it very seriously. It’s not a hobby! Our ongoing training, kit and expenses are not cheap and our high standards have a slightly higher price tag.
I’m often asked why bridal services are more expensive and all of the above is the reason why. We really provide the best professional service. The responsibility that goes with working a wedding is huge, but we deliver.
Facebook pages from very inexperienced people offering bridal services have been popping up everywhere so, someone finally took a stand - the Scottish Wedding Association. And I’m delighted they have. A non-profit organisation, they promote exceptional and ethical standards in order to inspire customer confidence in the wedding industry.
Members must undergo a vetting process prior to joining and must adhere to a strict Code of Practice.
This is long overdue in the business and I’m delighted to be part of it. Select a SWA member to ensure you are in capable hands.
