Wedding Make Up Interview with: Melanie

Categories: Wedding Make Up Interview

Mel and Gawin finally got to say their "I dos!" in January 2022, having had to reschedule from October 2020 and February 2021. She married her beau Gawin at Morley Hayes, in Derbyshire. 

When did you get engaged, and when did you get married? How long did it take to plan your wedding?
NYE 2018/19. Original date set for October 2020 as we knew we wanted Autumn/Winter but thought 2019 was too soon financially. Covid meant we were delayed twice, eventually settling on Jan 2022. We did loads of big planning by end of 2019, then hardly anything (other than date changes) until mid-2021.

What suppliers did you book first? Feel free to sing their praises!
Morley Hayes as a venue - Gemma showed us round and was an absolute star - we requested her as our MC on the day and she was fab. She “got” us straight away! The rest was a slower process, a few recommendations (inc Sali!), a few found at wedding fairs (lovely Leanne from Stately Brides, Belper) and some contributions from some very talented friends (hair/stationary). They all had to be taken on the journey with us as we moved dates, and requirements changed in some cases.
 
How did you find me to book me? e.g. Google, social media, recommendation etc.
Recommendation from a friend who said she was really worried about having her make up done, but you put her completely at ease. She was so right - you were exactly the right person for me. I didn’t really know how to describe what I wanted but you found it. The bride I saw in the mirror took my breath away - she was like a levelled up version of me haha.
 
 
Why did you book me? Did you consider doing your own makeup?
Because your work looked gorgeous, my friend told me how calm you helped her feel, and I wanted to treat myself to having it done properly. Would never have done it myself because I know it wouldn’t have been enough to suit the outfit and occasion and I wanted to feel fabulous!! Hearing about your calming influence, and seeing the amazing variety of styles in your website/socials made the decision for me.
 
How did you find your trial makeup appointment with me?
Great - a great conversation, totally honest and at ease and felt amazing. You made sense of my indecision - I wanted me but amplified, and you got that!
 
 
Would you have changed anything about your wedding makeup?
No, nothing. It was perfect. 
 
Any advice for someone else getting married?
Meet suppliers and go with your gut, aim to book the big stuff early, have an idea of what feel your want to the day - what are the things you really care about and the things that are just nice to have. Accept that not everything might go to plan, but that’s ok. Decide what matters to the 2 of you before you start looking - it will create some “knockout” questions for venues, so you don’t fall in love with somewhere that can’t meet your needs. Also, try and ignore the noise and focus on the details that mean something to you both. Oh, and as a bride, expect to be asked what your groom is wearing! Apparently some establishments expect a groom who just shows up. This helped us rule out a lot of suits suppliers until we found one who was totally focussed on my fiancé and what he wanted (Ryan at Slaters - should have put that in the supplier bit!)
