Trial & Error


During your Story trial I will go through all your ideas, so be prepared to get that Monica style wedding book out, Pinterest and magazine cuttings.  Basically, anything that is going to help translate your ideal look to me, so we can then make it come to life on you.

From here we can begin to explore a number of Hair & Makeup looks, using a variety of high quality products to acheive the styles desired.  

Skin will be prepped and primed, this process will include a cleanse, tone, moisturise and primer creating the perfect canvas prior to makeup application,  I can also advise what skin routine, might help you leading upto the big day.  Makeup will be adapted to you and I will advise what key products you may need for touch ups throughout the big day.  


Lashes/ individula cluster lashes can be applied upon request.


The trial process is therefore just as important as the big day itself.  This is where the overall bridal look for the day will be decided, so don't hold back be honest and speak up I want you to be 100% happy with the final look.

Whether you want light minimal make-up or a more dramatic style, this is the opportunity that will enable us to see what works and what doesn't.  

I know how important it is to feel comfortable in your own skin at the best of times, your wedding day is definitely one occasion where you want a look that makes you stand out, in all the right ways.

That is what Story are here to do!

A trial typically lasts from 2-4hours trying several of your desired looks.

If you have chosen your veil and/or hair accessory, please bring this with you on your trial day so it can be incorporated into your different looks.


If you have a larger wedding party to be covered, that is no problem.  I have a pool of trusty hand picked assistants who can help with your wedding day prep.



The Big Day


Having successfully established your ideal look with the trial,  the next time I will see you is on your special day!   In between the trial and the wedding day, I am always on hand  Feel free to get in contact if you have any queries.  

I use a variety of quality products on both your trial and on your wedding day, I will suggest products you might want to purchase, for touch ups for your day and would be happy to send a breakdown of all products used, should you want it following the trial.  Otherwise we will just select a few staples.


For the day I will require the time you need to be ready, from there we can work out a time plan, to ensure the day is as calm and organised as possible, ensuring you and you bridal party are ready in good time.

We will remain with you until you are all set to leave for your ceremony, to allow time for last minute tweaks and touch ups.
