Can you do both hair and makeup for my wedding?

I’m pleased to offer a hair styling service to complement your bridal makeup. Due to time restrictions we face on a wedding day, generally, no more than 3-4 people for hair and makeup can be catered for by myself. For more than 4 people or on a tight time schedule, myself and one of my team members will be happy to have you all ready on time. Under my direction we can create your perfect look. 

How far do you travel? 

 I can travel anywhere interstate or international with my kit. Being based in the Illawarra gives me very easy access to service the  Southern Highlands, Bowral, Berry, Kangaroo Valley, Nowra, Kiama, Gerringong and of course, Wollongong! But I’m always up for an adventure so please get in touch to discuss where you need me to be. International and interstate weddings must be in conjunction with Gavin Cato Photography.

I live too far away and can’t get to you for a trial. Do I really need one? 

While trials are recommend to give you a wonderful overall picture of what to expect on the day and to make sure you are happy with your look, rest assured that if circumstances don’t allow a trial to happen, that’s fine too. With my experience, we will make sure that we have a telephone or skype conversation, and chat about your requirements, and on the day allow that little bit of extra time to make sure we achieve the most beautiful outcome you are 100% happy with.
