As of 1st January 2016 the deposit taken will change from £20 to £70.
The main reason for this increase is because last year I was let down by a few clients who initially reserved the date with a deposit, then never contacted me further. Meaning I had to turn away brides who wanted book in for the same date, but as I already had a ‘confirmed’ booking I couldn’t then be there to do their wedding makeup. In short, to make it more fair for brides and to stop ‘hogging’ of dates the amount has increased to weed out time wasters.
So to reserve your wedding date you pop down a £70 to confirm the date in my diary, and in return I do not book anyone else in on your special day. The £70 deposit is then taken off of the final amount – so you never pay extra just the monies stated on the website, which are not hidden. I do not believe in hiding anything from clients.
