We shall help you plan a wedding hair and makeup schedule to have you and your bridal party ready on time, allowing you to relax and have fun whilst getting ready.

Wedding day

The Bespoke Occasions team are not just Hair and Makeup. For us it's about getting you ready. Our experienced team will do the work of planning a wedding hair and make up schedule to have you and your bridal party ready on time. The order of hair and makeup appointments
will be organised to allow the bride to relax and have fun giving you less stress on the day.
The service we provide helps to keep a calm atmosphere and allows time for everyone to feel ready for your Big Day. We always make sure that we are not invasive, just there to lend a professional hand.

With our Dressing Service for the day of the wedding, we assist the bride in putting on the gown and any other accessories. We are also on hand to help bridesmaids/attendants into their gowns and to help with smaller details such as pinning on corsages, button holes and any other last minute things and assist right up until you leave the room undertaking our final checks.

Our teams are fully kitted out with everything you could need in an emergency from sewing kits to sanitary products. We have been known to
do last minute dress alterations moments before a ceremony! We are happy to liaise ahead of the wedding with your photographer, florist, accessory designer etc. to help achieve your style, and in the case of the photographer, we can contact them, to make sure they’re happy with the schedule that we put together for you. We will schedule everything for the morning, to ensure that you can just relax and leave it to us.
Whatever you need help with on your wedding morning whilst the team are there, they will happily do for you. Once everyone is ready we will leave, making room for the photographer and allowing your day to continue running smoothly.


This is a morning to night VIP PACKAGE. The team at Bespoke Occasions will prepare your
first look before proceeding to follow you to the venue to provide both the bride and entire
guest party with touch-ups until they have completed your second evening look, if desired.

Do the bridesmaids/ brides mum need to have a trial run?


It’s usually just the bride, but I’m happy to do a trial run for any members of your bridal party if they are concerned about their hair and makeup for the ‘big day’. From my experience, once the bride is happy everyone else relaxes and is happy to meet me on the wedding day for the first time. However, if they would like a trial there would be a charge for this. Alternatively, they could come along to meet me on the trial day and just have a chat – no charge!!



Is it ok to invite a friend along when I have my trial?


Definitely! Just be careful though – if you have too many people you’ll get lots of different opinions – and you might find more of a hindrance than a help :)



When should I have my trial run?


Most people have their trial run anything from 6 months to 6 weeks before the wedding but anytime is fine.
