Review's...


''Elegant, beautiful, hair and make up. Very impressed, loved the hair styling. Exceptional service, HIGHLY recommended!! Thank you.''
- Melissa Turley

'I don't wear much make up at all, so I was nervous about having my wedding make up done and really didn't know what to expect. I didn't have to worry about any of that. Laura knows what she is doing!! She talked me through colours and ideas, was willing to listen and give advice... she really put me at ease. My make up was lovely and natural and I was beyond happy on my special day. I recommend Laura to every bride to be!'' -Jen Walker


''I had my trial for my hair & make-up & was so pleased. I was made to feel comfortable both at the trial & on my big day. I also had hair extensions in that matched perfectly to my hair colour. My hair and make up was absolutely amazing. My bridesmaids were all so happy with their's too. Laura went above & beyond her job on the day, she was so helpful and I will definitely recommend her in the future ,thank you so much.'' xx -Sam Swain 

''I first had my trial in June. I had a bridal package for myself, mother of the bride & my bridesmaids. Laura is such a lovely person, she made everything easy, we told her what we wanted and got our desired look! I got married on Saturday 27th October and I felt amazing! Our hair and make up didn't budge all day!! I couldn't have wished for anyone better! Thank you Laura you made my day so special :)''

 Terms & Conditions

  • Corona Virus Message  (COVID-19) 

 Dear Brides, 
   I understand that right now is an uncertain and unsettling time with ever evolving information.  I would like to reassure you of my terms and conditions as I expect you may be reading this if you have already booked with me or paid a fee to reserve your wedding date and would like to know where you stand should you need to reschedule/postpone your booking with me. I haven’t changed my T’s and C’s and they are outlined clearly below but importantly, please be reassured that I will try my best to be as flexible as possible in order to work with you to come to a resolution that works for us both - in the event that you need to postpone your wedding due to issues involving the corona virus.
 I do not wish to add to the inevitable stress you will be facing so please get in touch if you have any questions or concerns.

From a practical point of view, I have always operated to the highest standards with my kit with regards to cleanliness/hygiene and will continue to do so in compliance with current guidelines. You can also be assured that I am a socially responsible person and if I do not feel well, I will do my best to make rearrangements but most importantly, I will not put my clients at any risk and ask that you also notify me of any symptoms you may have prior to any appointments. 

 

 Currently any existing make up trials will need to be rescheduled in order to comply with the current governmental restrictions for beauticians (more information on this can be found on the contact/FAQ's page above). I will be liaising with all my brides individually to discuss the best way forward as we await further instructions from the government.. 


In any case, I aim to be present for any upcoming weddings that are still going ahead as usual this year (2020), unless restrictions out of my control are needed to be put in place for businesses and traders from the government in line with public health and safety guidelines. Understandably, most local businesses are uncertain as to how some other possible further restrictions will effect the services we provide but I assure you every care will be taken on my part to ensure arrangements run smoothly as reasonably possible.


Please see the existing postponement policy below which also applies to issues involving COVID-19. 


Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.


Kind Regards


...Stay safe!


Laura Bird Bridal 




T&C'S


By proceeding to book by way of paying a fee, you accept that you are entering into a contract for products or services with Laura Bird Bridal and you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions as outlined below. 

General Terms & Conditions 

(Applies to all products and services provided by Laura Bird Bridal)

  • Reservation fees to secure a wedding date are non-refundable. Wedding dates will need to be secured by paying a booking fee/deposit at the time of booking.
  • Wedding dates and/or appointments work on a first come, first serve basis.
  • Travel charges may apply depending on the location which you will need to enquire about otherwise travel costs will be added to your final balance automatically.
  • Wording or clarification to terms and conditions may be updated accordingly.

Postponements/Cancellations

  • In the event that you need to postpone your wedding or change the date due to exceptional unforeseen circumstances - You will be able to transfer your booking to a single new date free of charge (excluding a small admin fee of £25.00 that may be charged accordingly). Any additional date changes will require a new deposit to secure the date as well as an admin fee - payments already paid towards the day will still be transferred free of charge). However, your new booking may be subject to a service price increase or change up to date.
  •  Date transfers are strictly subject to availability. It is therefore important that you notify Laura Bird Bridal as soon as possible of your intended date options, well in advance of booking the date. Every care will be taken to ensure you are able to transfer your booking, providing the date is available. If not, I will try my best to fit you around any existing bookings if you are able to be flexible with times and if it is possible, but this is not guaranteed. Again, in line with these terms and conditions, you will need to discuss these dates first so we can advise you further before you commit to a specific date elsewhere to ensure availability (this includes committing to dates with venues or registrars). 
  If you choose to go ahead with a date due to not checking available dates with us prior or where you are notified there is no availability for a specific date, then this is entirely the responsibility of the client and out of the control of Laura Bird Bridal. Please note that our lack of availability through no fault of our own for your new chosen date does not automatically result in a refund as it is the clients responsibility to make sure Laura Bird Bridal can accommodate a new date when it is not part of the original booking date, agreement and contract. However, at the discretion of Laura Bird Bridal another service or date that we can fulfil may be offered on another special occasion where by hair and make up/services may be applied will be considered (up to the amount you have paid towards the day). If you have already had your trial, any further payments are also non-refundable (Transferable only - up to one free date change). 
  • Your new booking may be subject to a service price increase or change up to date.
  • A new booking should not exceed more than two years from the original booking date
  • Any cancellations or none agreed postponements complying with the above terms and conditions may result in the termination of your contract with Laura Bird Bridal. 

During this current global pandemic (COVID-19) - Once notified of a possible postponement, we are urging our brides to make sure their new booking complies with our terms and conditions.


Trials, Bookings & Payments

  • Trials are usually carried out on weekdays but can be arranged at weekends on occasional due to unavoidable circumstances at the discretion of Laura Bird Bridal. However, weddings always take priority at the weekends, so it is therefore advised trials are scheduled in the week where possible due to limited availability.
  • Trial appointments or times may need to be rescheduled in the event that it conflicts with a wedding booking. However, in this case, I will try and arrange this around a time most convenient for you. Deposits paid are to hold the wedding date, not trial appointments.
  • Your remaining balance is usually due at the trial once you are happy with everything unless otherwise agreed. There are no payments accepted on the wedding day unless an extra person is mutually agreed to be added on the day itself, time permitting.
  • Any additional people added to the booking prior to the wedding day will need to be paid for in full before the wedding. Any cancellations of people on the original booking form will be payable in full, if not notified 6 weeks prior to the wedding day. 
  • All bookings are to meet the minimum requirement's before deposits are paid - details are outlined when a price list is requested. I have the right to cancel a booking at any time if it fails to meet the minimum requirement agreed at the time of booking or if it otherwise conflicts with the terms and conditions as stated.
  •  An additional wedding may be booked on the same day. Please note that it is not unusual for hair/make up artists to have more than one client booked on the same day, especially over the weekend. Timing will be discussed accordingly and in advance if necessary.
  • Brides who are offered a single booking at the discretion of Laura Bird bridal (subject to availability/surcharge payable) will be booked on the basis that additional bridal bookings may be taken or that the client is willing to fit around an existing booking subject to timing.
  • Payment methods accepted: Cash & BACS (BACS Preferable)


Make up artist/Hair stylist - Service Cancellations 


Please be assured that I have never let a bride down on their wedding day due to illness or any other reason in all of my years of trading but I have to legally stipulate conditions in the event of there being any extreme circumstances that may effect our contract.


Cancellations by the makeup artist/hair stylist due to genuine, extreme or unavoidable circumstances including, but not limited to, problems affecting the makeup artists performance or their obligations (severe illness, accidents or otherwise) where no other suitable alternative can be arranged, a refund of any payments made towards the wedding day will be given to the client in due course. If the booking is directly affected by other circumstances beyond the control of the makeup artist including but not limited to severe weather conditions, acts of God, health or safety reasons, where possible the makeup artist will endeavour to rectify such situations as quickly and effectively as possible (i.e recommend another local stylist, offer alternative arrangement for services). However, it is advisable for the client to take out reputable wedding or event insurance to cover yourself financially against these situations as Laura Bird Bridal cannot be liable for circumstances out of its control. 


Social media & photography


Unless otherwise specified by the client, any professional or digital photos taken at the trial or on the wedding day may be added to the Laura Bird Bridal website and/or social media. If a professional photographer is hired, the makeup artist may obtain any images to be used for the website/social media unless stated otherwise. It is up to the client to notify Laura Bird Bridal against any restrictions involving the use of third party photography.


Contact Information & Confidentiality


All personal details taken by Laura Bird Bridal will be strictly kept confidential and safely stored on file for the purpose of the booking only. If you have any questions or concerns relating to your booking at any time, Laura Bird Bridal is not at liberty to discuss this with any other third party on your behalf or obligated to respond to any correspondence other than from the client who the contract is formed with at the time of booking. It is also unlawful/breach of contract for a client to share any personal information given by Laura Bird Bridal with any other third party unless permission is obtained.


Products & Responsibilities of the client


Prior to the trial, it is the responsibility of the client to inform the makeup artist of any known skin sensitivity to products or any other concerns that may affect the use of any equipment or products; all details are treated as confidential. This includes but is not limited to sensitivities, allergies and medical conditions. Where possible, the makeup artist will endeavour to select products that will suit your skin type according to the information you have provided. The makeup artist is not liable for any adverse reactions to products used. If the client or party feel they require a patch test for any products, this will need to be arranged in advance of the trial or wedding day by the client and charged according to the agreed fee.
