Once paid this can be refunded up to 7 days after the trial if the client does not wish to go ahead with the booking.
If the client cancels before a trial has taken place, the booking fee will not be refunded.
Arranging a trial without paying the booking fee does not reserve the makeup artist’s services for the event.
Payments can be made in cash or via bank transfer, cheques will not be accepted.
The deposit of £50 paid by the client is taken off of the wedding day fee.
The trial is paid for at the time of trial.
If paying by bank transfer, this must be paid at least 14 days before.

The makeup artist cannot be held liable for any losses or damage that is incurred due to the client’s failure to inform the artist of any known condition.

At any point the client can cancel the event by informing the the makeup artist.
If the client cancels a wedding booking with 30 days notice, there will be no cancellation fees. However any less and the client will have to pay 50% of the agreed fee.
Cancellations by the makeup artist due to circumstances including, but not limited to, problems rendering their performance and where no other suitable alternative can be given -will result in a refund to the client of the trial and booking fee. No further compensation will be offered.
If the booking is directly affected by circumstances beyond the control of the makeup artist, every possible endeavor to rectify such situations will be made, however no compensation will be offered on the makeup artist’s part. The client is strongly advised to take out wedding insurance to cover against such situations
Exclusivity is not guaranteed for the whole day of the event, therefore timings will be seriously considered when agreeing to any booking.
It is unlikely that there will be another event on the day; and any second event undertaken by the makeup artist will not affect the first event
An exclusivity fee can be arranged if preferred

8. Travel Expenses
The Makeup Artist will travel for free within a 15mile radius of Fenstanton, Cambridge. A charge of 45p per mile will be added outside of this area including the return journey.
The client will cover any necessary travel expenses of the makeup artist as agreed at time of booking. This is to include, should it be required, congestion charging and parking charges.
9. Venue Change
Quite often venues will not allow us into the bridal suite early enough on the morning of the wedding. If we set up at one location and pack up to drive to the wedding venue to then set up again then a fee of £25 per artist will be added to the total wedding fee. A fee is added to cover time spent setting up / packing down / setting up again as this will incur an earlier start time overall.
On some occasions I may need to bring an assistant to help out at your wedding morning if time is not on our side. There are no additional hire fees added for me to bring an assistant however an extra travel fee may incur depending on where they are travelling from. I will notify you of full travel costs when quoting.
