Amanda White Hair and Makeup services are a team of professional hair and makeup artists selected by Amanda White. Amanda White will manage the booking process throughout the entire booking. Your chosen stylist upon receipt of deposit and trial fee will be given your contact details so you are able to liaise with each other ahead of your trial and wedding. All stylists have their own insurance and are freelancers themselves. Amanda White does not directly employ them.
Stylists are only booked upon receipt of a deposit. When booking any team member other than Amanda herself a trial fee is also to be paid along with a deposit. Amanda accepts the trial payment payable at the time of the trial. Final Balance payments are due 8 weeks prior to your wedding, or 48 hours after your trial if the booking is within 8 weeks of the wedding date. No refunds are given under any circumstances including if you should unfortunately have to cancel your wedding. In many cases the stylists have turned away other bookings or jobs to show commitment to you as a client. In these cases full payment shall be retained. This has been put in place due to unfortunate situations where late payments and last minute cancellations have happened.
CHANGES TO BOOKINGS
For those of you whom have booked a Saturday between May and September, we do ask there is a minimum of 2 people. Bride plus one other for hair and makeup on your booking or equivalent (Bride plus 2 for hair/makeup only) so please bear that in mind should your numbers change. Bride only bookings between April and September Sunday- Friday and October bookings Monday- Sunday will have additional charges due to peak season.
We do ask that all numbers in your party be confirmed before you make your final wedding day/ final balance payment so we do not have any problems with the running of schedule. If numbers increase then an assistant may be needed. Assistants we charge at £100 per assistant if numbers exceed over 3 for hair and makeup or your ceremony time is very early. If numbers decrease after you have made your final wedding payment, payment is retained, as it is non-refundable. Refunds for assistant charges will only be given if they are no longer needed.
EARLY START TIMES
In instances where you need to be ready early, meaning that the stylist would need to start before 6am then a charge of £100 will be added onto the booking.
Travel costs are charged at 0.50p per mile if journey exceeds a 15-mile radius from the stylists home address -Parking and congestion charges where applicable will be charged to you the client and you will be notified of this prior to you making your final balance payment -Hotel accommodation and dinner supplements on longer distance weddings would need to be provided – you will be advised on this when you receive a quote.
If you the client decides to cancel, the deposit is fully refundable 1 week after your trial/ 48 hours after the trial whichever is closest to the wedding date. If we have to cancel at any time or we are unable to perform our duties for any reason, we will make every possible effort to identify a suitable alternative as soon as practicable. The client is then responsible for booking and paying for that artist in accordance with their own service terms and conditions. The wedding day fee will be refunded to the client.
