Your Special Day - Tips and Information.
Kellee has had many years of experience when it comes to weddings and understands the pressures and concerns Brides can have. Kellee's experience ensures quality, she is very particular and pays attention to detail. A trial prior to your wedding is preferred when possible to ensure Bride is comfortable and everything runs smoothly for the big day. On the day of the trial an in depth consultation is given to ensure the bride feels confident and happy with the chosen look. Kellee likes to keep herself up to date with the trending looks as well as loving the classics.

ADDITIONAL NOTES FROM KELLEE
A few things to think about and questions covered in your consultation/Trial
Are you going to wear a vale? If so, we need to think about the positioning in relation to the hairstyle.
Are you going to wear it over your face walking down the isle? (its great if you can bring along to trial ) Do you want your bridesmaids to assist you to take it out later in the day? (this can be tricky but I can guide them)
Are you wanting any hair accessories? If so, where would you like them positioned (I can help advise on this also) Personally I think accessories and flowers can be a stunning way to add that extra beautiful touch. If you would like real flowers it is great if you can have them wired by your florist.
Other questions I will ask. What is the style of your dress? Are you wanting your look classic, elegant, bohemian, princess? What is your flavour? Do you like your hair sleek an smooth or more of a natural feel. How much height would you like? Half up, all up… down, curls/waves/straight. Does your hair hold curl? Does your hair get oily? What about your parting?... Fringe area? Do you need any extensions prior to your day for added length or volume? Clip-in extensions on the day perhaps? How do you feel about your face shape? There are ways we can elongate or shorten the appearance if desired.
Timing for the big day!... This is critical. We need to work through your schedule and make sure the day runs smoothly and is stress free as possible for you. We need to think about timing for your makeup artist. Once I have an idea of what we are doing hair wise I can give you a timing estimate and we can work out what time we should get started on your special day.
I have been lucky enough to look after many brides and bridal parties over the years. I feel it is quite special to be involved in those hours leading up to the wedding. I suggest you enjoy these moments by having a little relax and a laugh. Maybe play some of your favourite music, have a wine and a few nibbles if your feeling it. Are you having your photographer there whist you are getting ready? Enjoy these moments…
And finally, just an observation I have noticed over the years. ….. Most of the time brides are feeling fine on their big day. A bit nervous but nothing awful. It is usually your mother or mother in law that is stressed out or emotional which can trigger you! !.. Ha, take it easy mum:).... 90% of the time I have seen this so I just want to share and prepare in order for you to enjoy your day as MUCH as possible. Of course everyone is different but it’s very much a strong trend! Every now and then it may be a Bridesmaid!
Let me know if you have any further questions. Feel free to email photos or give me a call.
