Is it worth having a make-up trial and what should I expect?
"A make-up trial is a great opportunity to get to know your supplier. To deliver the best results, your MUA has to understand your likes, dislikes and be able to discuss your ideas. Your bridal make-up is a key part of your day, so it's crucial you don't skip this part of the process."
"At the trial, I personally go through your eye colour, skin colour, texture and facial features, as well as your dress, flowers and overall theme of the wedding. The make-up has to enhance your personality and not take over the rest. It's very important to work together to make you look and feel your very best and exude confidence. The trial also allows you to test products to ensure you have no skin reactions or sensitivities to them."

What are the latest hair and make-up trends?
"Two hair trends are popular at the moment: Hollywood waves and half up dos."
"The Hollywood wave is the perfect style for those who want gorgeous volume and sophistication. This look is now being incorporated into other designs, such as ponytails."
"The half up do is a classic and timeless style that gives you the best of both worlds, as you can wear your hair down and keep it away from your face. It's also incredibly versatile, as you can change so many elements to give the look a personal twist. It can be dressed up with intricate braids or worn in a more relaxed style with soft curls. It's been in demand with bridal parties because it's easy to adapt to different hair types."

I often find myself telling my future brides-to-be that it's always beneficial to have a hair trial. You should book your trial a couple of months before your wedding, and it should be a relaxing experience where you'll have the time to discuss all the aspects of your wedding but most importantly how you want to feel and look on your special day. It's a good idea to have a moodboard containing all the different styles that you like. This will allow you to share your ideas at your trial as trying to describe a hairstyle you have seen can be difficult for the stylist to recreate.

Before booking, you should see examples of their past work to ensure that you like their particular style. Ask for links to their work, these are usually made available via Instagram, Facebook or their website. Check if they specialise in weddings. The term make-up artist is broad and covers a wide variety of sectors, therefore skill sets can vary significantly. If travelling to a salon is not part of your plan, then you need to ensure you select a supplier who can travel to you. This is usually more relaxing and eliminates the chance of your look getting spoiled outside in the elements.

When choosing your hairstyle, you should consider the style of your dress, its neckline, your hair type, whether you're wearing it up or down, your face shape, wedding theme and accessories. Once all these factors have been discussed, you can begin choosing the perfect style for you. Autumn is my favourite wedding season. It's such a romantic and atmospheric time of year with the most beautiful colours. Here are some of the most popular styles: The messy up do. This is my all-time favourite and is such a versatile look. It can be done high up, low down with plaits or with twists. It's a perfect style for bad weather and looks chic at the same time. An autumnal headpiece such as a flower crown made with dry blooms, silk or fresh flowers in burnt oranges, golds and browns and can be worn with or without a veil.
