Terms and Conditions
Securing the booking of your event
A non-refundable deposit of £100 is required to secure your wedding and this will be deducted from your final balance. Due to such high demand, I am unable to reserve individual dates. Your wedding date will only be secure once a deposit has been received. For special occasions or other non-wedding bookings, a 50% non-refundable deposit is required.
During the peak wedding season months of April-October, there is a minimum booking charge of the Bride plus two other bridal party members (this does not include flower girls).
Payments can be made in cash or via bank transfer. Unfortunately I am unable to accept Cheques. The final balance of your wedding makeup is due at least 2 weeks before your event. For non-wedding bookings, the outstanding balance (50%) will be due to pay on the day of service.
Responsibility of the client
The client shall inform the makeup artist of any issues that may affect the use of any products or equipment. This includes, but is not limited to, sensitivities, allergies and medical conditions. It is the responsibility of the client to inform the makeup artist of any subsequent reactions, so amendments can be made before the event.
Responsibility of Makeup Artist
Christina is responsible for arriving at the agreed venue, specified by the client, within good time. Christina is responsible for the provision and application of all makeup products unless otherwise stated. The makeup artist is to only provide the agreed service as detailed in the booking. Any additional requirements must be arranged and paid for prior to the event.
If for any reason you choose or need to cancel your booking within 12 weeks of your wedding, your £100 deposit will be retained and you will not be liable for any other payments. Cancellations made between 12 and 6 weeks will require 50% of the full outstanding balance. Cancellations made within 6 weeks will require full payment. All cancellations must be received in writing by letter or email. Extenuating circumstances will be considered at the discretion of Christina Cooling.
If you do not wish to secure your booking date and only require a trial, this must be paid for in advance. Bridal makeup trials can be re-arranged at any point, however a trial cancelled with less than 24 hours notice will be charged for the agreed rate. A trial may only be rescheduled twice. Please remember, your wedding date is not secure until you have completed a booking form and paid your deposit.
When travelling to locations, the first 10 miles are free and then a return journey is charged at 50p per mile and worked out based on postal code, so please provide this when enquiring and a quote can be provided upon request. Parking expenses are charged to the client.
Health & Safety
Should any client or member of the client's party become abusive, threatening or offensive, Christina reserves the right to terminate her service immediately, without a refund. For reasons of Health & Safety, smoking is strictly not permitted during the makeup trial or any makeup lesson or makeup service.
