Your questions answered

How can I secure my wedding date?

A booking fee of £50 will secure a date in Clare’s diary, this is then deducted from the wedding day balance. No dates are guaranteed without a booking fee or a completed booking form. Booking fees are non refundable, please read the booking terms & conditions.


Your trial will ideally take place about two to three months before your wedding day.

What days to does Clare offer trial appointments?

Clare offers consultations Monday through to Saturday. However during peak wedding season, availability for a Saturday appointment is unlikely as Clare is usually be working on actual weddings. Weddings are long days and often not local. Therefore Clare has more flexibility to offer weekday or late afternoon appointments in the summer months.


Clare is based in Ashtead, Surrey but she travels extensively and is able to offer her services throughout Surrey, Sussex, London, Hampshire, Kent, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire, Essex, throughout the UK and internationally.

What if Clare is ill on my wedding day?

Having worked with hundreds of brides, luckily this is a situation that has never occurred. However If, under really exceptional circumstances, Clare needed to cancel a wedding booking, every effort would be made to find to an alternative stylist. If this is not possible, or is unacceptable to the client, 100% of the deposit and any monies already paid towards wedding day services will be refunded.

My Wedding service is early and my bridal party is very large, will you be able to get us all ready on time?

For larger sized bridal parties, Clare has a fabulous network of talented hair and makeup industry colleagues who she regularly works with. Together they create beautiful hair and makeup in a calm, friendly and professional manner. Additional travel costs may incur for extra artists to reach your venue depending on location.

My wedding venue will not allow access to the bridal room until 11am?

There are many wedding venues where access is only allowed after 11am. This does cause some disruption, especially with large sized bridal parties. As an experienced artist Clare can help devise a best plan and a solution for the morning . However If there is a split between two venues there will be an extra cost. Additional time and travel will be involved plus extra set ups/pack downs and travel time. A second artist may also be required depending on size of bridal party and time of ceremony. Clare can provide a quote once full details have been discussed.

What happens if I decide to be tanned for my wedding day? OR CAN I GET A Spray Tan?

Clare always custom blends foundations, so if your skin is a darker shade on your wedding day than at your trial appointment, Clare will your base to match. She will provide advice on faux or spray tanning but Clare does not offer spray tanning anymore. However, with a background as an experienced master tanner, she can certainly refer you to the best tanners in the industry.
