FAQ AND MORE INFO
Terms and Conditions
Upon the booking of your bridal trial you will be sent an invoice detailing all your costings for
your wedding day and trial (if trial required). The deposit will cover your trial and also secure
your wedding date in my diary. The deposit is non-refundable should for any reason you wish to
cancel your booking.
Once we have completed your trial and you wish to go ahead with your booking, half of your
booking amount will be due within 3 days of the date of your trial to keep the date. The
remaining balance is then due up to 3 weeks of your wedding date.
If no trial is required, half of the booking amount is due as a booking fee to secure your wedding
date. The remaining balance is then due up to 3 weeks of your wedding date. When no trial is
required, Images of the looks you wish to achieve would be appreciated.

costs will also require to be covered if there is no free parking at your address/venue.
Cancellations or reducing amount of people less than 3 weeks (21 days) before the wedding will
result in no refund and full payment will be required for all individuals, as it is most likely be
unable to fill the date or time.
Any cancelled bookings between payment of booking fee and up to 3 weeks before the wedding
means your booking fee or any payments already made will not be refunded, but the remaining
payments will not need to be made.

Additional bridal party members can be added if you are happy to start slightly earlier than
agreed, to fit everyone in.
If you no longer want to go ahead with the booking after the trial no more payments will be
taken. Although if the trial is within the 3 week gap before your wedding date a £50 charge will
be taken to cover some of the time I have held for you, as unlikly I will be able to fill the time.

Trials are recommended for the Bride, so you are comfortable and relaxed on the day of your
wedding. Sometimes clients book extra bridal party trials in but this is not essential.
It is completely your choice when you would like to have your trial, some clients choose to have
