Belle & Bride only takes bookings for weddings when Joanna has availability. Joanna will always style the brides hair. If required, an assistant may need to be booked for an additional £50 for assistance with bridesmaids, mothers and guests. This will be dependent on the size of the bridal party, location and time of the wedding, Joanna will normally advise on this at the trial unless she can foresee this on the details supplied by the bride at the time of the booking.
Joanna works alongside a select few make-up artists that she will recommend to the client where required. She will normally include the details and pricing of the make-up artist through Belle & Bride dependent on the number of people requiring the make-up artists services. A £50 deposit may be required to hold the date for the make-up artist.
Joanna will be happy to recommend other hair stylists on dates where she does not have availability.
We want our clients to be happy with Joanna and assistant stylists. If a client decides to cancel a wedding booking after a trial, the deposit for any wedding day charges will be refunded.
The trial and travel money paid to Joanna is completely non-refundable.
If you require a second trial you will need to pay the full trial amount. Exceptions may apply.
Belle & Bride cancellations
In exceptional circumstances Joanna may need to cancel a booking. This has never happened before but, if it does all attempts will be made to find an alternative stylist. If this is not possible or is unacceptable to the client, Belle & Bride will refund 100% of the deposit.
Notification should be given of any changes to the booking and trial as soon as possible. This includes changes to the number of clients, location, dates and times. It is the client’s responsibility to do this as we cannot guarantee Joanna and assistant stylists to be available all day.
Changes must be confirmed in writing via email or in person and are not accepted as written notice until you have received a reply from Joanna.
Change of wedding date
Joanna will do her best to rebook herself (and the original assistant stylist where required) for the new date.
Change to number of clients
A new price will be calculated based on our current price list to reflect any changes in the bridal party.
Please note that if the change results in the number of adults dropping below the minimum booking - the standard surcharge will apply. If a wedding or part of booking is cancelled within 14 days of the wedding date, the balance is required in full.
Change of location
Belle & Bride may need to add travel and accommodation charges if the location changes.
