Mid week trials are also available by appointment. Please visit the ‘trials’ tab on my website for more information on how you can get the most out of your trial.

Your Complementary Trial
As part of booking ‘Team Cato’ for your wedding day, you will receive a complementary trial for hair and / or makeup. You can book this in for your pre shoot with Gavin, or on a separate day. Trial must be paid for on the day, and the trial amount will be deducted from your final invoice.

Booking Fee / Balance Payable
Booking fees are non refundable and come off the total balance. As the date is solely held for you, should a booking be cancelled, the booking fee will only be refunded if the date becomes booked by another client. Michelle Cato, Makeup Artist reserves the right to cancel a booking if circumstances beyond my control should occur. Should this happen every effort will be made to secure a replacement artist and a booking fee refund will apply. Bookings are only confirmed once booking fee has been paid. Balance remaining is payable one week before the wedding date.
