Terms & Conditions
To secure your wedding date, a completed enquiry form is required with a non-refundable booking fee of £100 due at the same time. The booking fee covers the reservation of the date and any administrative costs related to supplying Stephanie's services. This booking fee is non-refundable and non-transferable. It will be deducted from the outstanding balance and is not a pre-payment for trials. Trial costs are charged separately and are invoiced 7 days before the date of the trial with the payment due 24 hours before the trial takes place. A date cannot be held without payment of the booking fee and the requested date will still be open to other enquiries in the meantime.
You will receive your final invoice 6 weeks before your wedding date, this will include the remaining wedding balance and any travel expenses which are payable directly to Stephanie by bank transfer. You have 14 days to pay the final invoice from the date of issue. Failure to make full payment will result in termination of the appointment.
MINIMUM BOOKING REQUIREMENTS
A minimum booking total of £485 (excluding travel & accommodation expenses) applies to all weekend wedding bookings (FRIDAY/SATURDAY/SUNDAY and any bank holidays). This is equivalent to the bride + 3 wedding party makeups. If services are reduced to less than the minimum booking requirements, the full minimum amount will still be charged.
Once the booking has been confirmed and the booking fee has been paid to secure the booking, booked services and numbers may not be reduced. No amendments to the number of makeup services can be canceled unless you wish to increase the number of services, in that instance, you must notify Stephanie as soon as possible, as additional artists may need to be organised. Additional services must be paid for in full prior to the wedding day.
Cancellation prior to 6 weeks of your wedding date will result in no further monies being owed. Cancellation after this period will result in the remaining balance being due/withheld. In the unfortunate event that Stephanie is unable to attend on the day, due to illness or for last-minute, unforeseen circumstances, all efforts will be made to find an alternative artist. If this is not possible or is unacceptable to the client, Stephanie will fully refund any monies paid (excluding any money paid for work already carried out, such as trials and administration time).
Members of the bridal party who cancel on the day will not be refunded but can be transferred to another member of the bridal party to use the makeup session booked if required, if this is the case Stephanie must be notified of this upon arrival on the day.
