Celina is devoted to you looking breathtaking on your special day and helping you feel on top of the world.
Celina believes that fabulous make-up shouldn't feel or look caked-on. Guests should see a beautiful you, not just beautiful make-up.
On your wedding day, Celina will arrive at your home or venue in good time and set up a make-up area by a bright window. Your bridal party will usually get their make-up applied first and take up to 45 minutes each. One hour will be allowed for the bride's make-up, with minor back and chest blemishes covered.
The bride's hair will ideally be styled before make-up is applied but you'll discuss the timing schedule at your trial to ensure all runs smoothly, on-time and you are stress-free.
Once your trial is complete and you are happy with your make-up, a deposit of 50% per person is required continue to hold your wedding date. If any of the wedding party cancel their booking before the wedding day, their deposit will unfortunately be lost. Final payment can be made one to two weeks prior to the wedding by bank transfer.
Travel within 10 miles of CM77 is included, outside of this will be charged at 70p per mile each way. Any parking, toll gate costs or congestion charges incurred will be need to be re-imbursed to Celina.
For more information, including minimum bridal group numbers, please take a look at the FAQs page.
*If the party are getting dressed, straight after make-up. Celina will advise you of her arrival and
departure time following timing discussion at the trial.

You'll definitely want to know how your make-up is going to look on your special day, so a no-obligation pre-wedding consultation & trial is vital and usually booked in for 8-12 weeks before your wedding day (although, an earlier trial can be arranged). All trials are held at Celina's house in Braintree and on weekdays during daytime for the best light.
Your consultation & trial usually takes up to one & a half hours but there's no time limit. You'll discuss your usual make-up style, along with any bridal look ideas you may already have in mind. If you're not sure what you'd like, just leave it to Celina to create a perfect look to suit you.
You'll also talk about your wedding theme, flowers, colours and dress style to ensure your look compliments everything else you've put so much hard work into and Celina will work out your timing schedule. She will ensure you're 100% happy with your make-up, take photos and record every product I've used so it can easily be replicated on your big day. Celina will let you know the lip products she's used, incase you want to buy them to top up on the day, or can supply a mini pot of your MAC lipstick with a clutch bag friendly lipbrush.
It's not essential, but it's a good idea for your bridesmaids (and mum, if they're having their make-up done) to join you and have a trial too - so that their make-up colours and ideas can be discussed. This makes sure that everyone is comfortable with their wedding day make-up look and can make for a fun girls' day. Their trials will take up to an hour each. (All trials must be on the same day).
Celina will email you after your trial with all the timings and receipting deposit paid and email again one to two weeks before your big day confirming everything, for your peace of mind.
Your best features will be enhanced and anything you're not so keen about disgused. Your make-up will look flawless and really will last all day and night.
To commission Celina, or to just ask a question, send her an email (inform her how many people, getting ready postcode, wedding date & time) and she'll then contact you to confirm her availability, a quote and booking information. In order to book your trial (and pencil your wedding date in), a non-refundable booking fee of £50 is required. This will be deducted from the cost of your trial.
