Terms and conditions

Securing a wedding date

£50 will be required to secure your wedding date, this is a non-refundable/ non transferrable booking payment that will be deducted from your final balance.

Once I have confirmed availability the booking payment will need to be paid within 24hrs otherwise you will need to recheck availability.

Trials

The trial price will be taken in full at the time of the trial including any additional travel costs.

If you are having a trial WITHOUT securing your date please note that the date may be booked in the time before your trial.

Your trial is the time to perfect your look and time is allowed to make adjustments until you are happy. If for any reason you decide not to go ahead with the wedding date, the trial is still required to be paid for in full and the payment for securing your date will not be refunded or transferred.

Travel and Parking

Travel within a 15 mile radius of PR25 is included (FOR BRIDAL ONLY), a 7.5 mile radius (BEAUTY AND MAKEUP) outside that, travel will be charged at 50 p per mile.

Travel over 2 hours may incur additional charges for loss of earnings due to travel.

Please ensure there is somewhere for the makeup artist to park which is close by as she will be carrying equipment.

Any parking charges must be paid for by the client.

For destinations where there is 2 or more hours travel and an early start accommodation may need to be provided, the cost for this must be covered by the client.

For International destinations all travel, transfers, accommodation and insurance must be paid for.

Cancellations

Bookings for wedding makeup are usually made well in advance of the actual wedding date, late cancellations are almost impossible to re sell and for that reason the following conditions apply.

In the event you need to cancel your wedding the payment to secure the date will not be refunded, if you have had your trial this also will not be refunded, as the service has already been provided.

The balance is required to be paid 8 weeks before the wedding, if you have to cancel the wedding after this time the full balance is still due.

In the unlikely event that the makeup artist is unable to attend the wedding due to illness a replacement makeup artist will be assigned and any extra costs will be covered by us on receipt of a professional invoice from the new makeup artist.

Beauty cancellations require 48hr notice anything less than that may result in a charge for the full treatment cost. Deposits will not be refunded but may be transferred to another date at the discretion of the artist.

Changes to bridal bookings

Changes to the venue or location that makeup will take place may result in extra charges being made.

Changes made to the bridal party number after the final balance has been paid (8 weeks before the wedding date) will not be refunded.

Please note the minimum party catered for is bride plus 2. After 12/02/18 a minimum booking of bride plus 4 is required.

Time

Please ensure prior to makeup appointments that you are makeup free (skin will be prepped), have brushed your teeth, put in your contact lenses, had sufficient food and drink and made any relevant phone calls.

All the above take time that is allowed for makeup application resulting in me having to rush your service or making me late for another client.

For all treatments, if you are running late this will result in your service being rushed or cut short and may even result in the treatment not being carried out, yet still charged for.

Prices

Prices are subject to change.

If you have been given a quote and your payment to secure the date has been made, then should prices change, your quote will not be affected.

Please note my prices are very reasonable for the quality of my work and the range of products in my kit. Prices also include time for travel, unsociable hours, advertisement, correspondence and paper work.

I will aim to fit in to budgets etc, if this is made clear on first enquiry. If I am able to offer any discounts this will be at my discretion, please do not try to barter on price.

Working conditions

Adequate space, lighting and heating is required. I have a chair that I will bring along on wedding mornings to ensure you are the right height but will require a flat surface or table to set out my products.

For health and safety reasons children and pets remain the responsibility of the client, if any products or equipment are damaged by a child or pet the client must be prepared to replace such items.

Treatments that require the use of the beauty bed or spray tanning tent will require space for such items, these treatments will only be carried out on a ground floor location.

Allergies

Please ensure you make the makeup artist aware of any allergies and illnesses that may cause a reaction from any cosmetic product being applied, should you fail to mention this prior to treatment then the makeup artist will not be held responsible for any reactions.

The makeup artist has the right to refuse treatment to anyone suffering from anything that with compromise the health and safety of her products, tools or herself for example cold sores, conjunctivitis etc

If the makeup artist has already arrived at the appointment before this is discovered then the FULL price of the treatment plus any extra travel charges will still need to be paid.

Smoking

Smoking is not permitted during the makeup session or in the vicinity of the artist and her kit.

Illness

If you OR ANY member of your household has been unwell with anything that is contagious such as flu or sickness and diarrhoea, please inform me PRIOR to the appointment. I have the right to refuse treatment and should the appointment not be able to be rebooked the full treatment price will still need to be paid.

Photographs

If time allows I may ask to take photographs these may be used on social media and my website.

No wedding trial pictures will appear on either social media or the wedding prior to the wedding.

I ask that any photos taken by the photographer credit the makeup artist.

Also once you have received your professional photos back, if you are happy for me to display them on my website then please email me a decent resolution copy to mail@luciemua.co.uk

If professional photos or own photos are not to be used please ensure this is made clear and a note is made.

Please note that by completing the bridal enquiry form and selecting the box and also by paying the booking payment you are agreeing to abide by these terms.
