Do you offer trials?
Yes, I offer a ‘limitless’ trial, meaning there is no time limit on your appointment. This ensures that before you leave, you are completely happy and satisfied with the look we have created for you and you can start your wedding day with confidence.
How far in advance should I book a trial?
I usually do trials 4-8 weeks before the wedding day, because by then you will usually have most of your other details in place so we can make sure it all works together. If required it can be done at an earlier date.
How far do you travel?
I will travel as far as necessary. This may incur an additional cost.
Can you stay for the service and evening?
Your makeup and hair will last all day but I can stay for touch ups or a hair/makeup change if you require me to. There are extra charges for this service.
How much time do you need on my wedding day?
For a bride, I would usually allow 2 hours for makeup and hair but this all depends on the styles you have chosen. It could be less, or possibly more. For additional wedding parry/guests I would usually allow 1.5 hours each. If you have a large bridal party I can bring a trusted assistant so that you are not up too early and the wedding morning is calm and relaxing!
Do you offer hair/makeup for the mother of the bride/groom?
I offer hair and makeup for all members of the wedding party. I have previously done the hair for the father of the bride and also a haircut for the groom!
Do you offer hair/makeup for junior bridesmaids/flower girls?
Yes I do. I prefer not to add makeup to very small children because I just don’t think they need it on their delicate skin, but I can certainly help with some hairstyling. Teenage bridesmaids 11+ are welcome to book in for both hair and makeup.
Do you offer airbrush makeup?
I am trained in airbrush makeup, however, I find that this kind of makeup can give a very flat appearance. Coming from an art background, I prefer to use traditional techniques and artist brushes.
What brands do you use?
I use a huge array of different brands in my kit. For my wedding work I use a lot of designer products made by Tom Ford, Chanticaille, Glossier, Nars, MAC, Biossance, Armani, Pat McGrath and Charlotte Tilbury. I also mix in some high street products as they are such good quality now.
Can you teach me how to do my own makeup?
Absolutely! Contact me for more info.
Do you use cruelty-free brands?
I try to use cruelty free brands where I can but I cannot guarantee that every product will fall into this category.
About Sally Crouch - Makeup Artist & Hair Stylist
Hello! I have been a makeup artist and hair stylist for Film, TV and Weddings for 15 years. So far in my career, I have been very fortunate to have worked on some huge blockbuster films with Oscar-winning makeup and hair designers and my work has been photographed by renowned photographers such as Annie Leibovitz and featured in Vogue. I have worked with many celebrities and luxury brands. I am based in Brackley, Northamptonshire and work all over the UK and Internationally.
I have made up hundreds of bride's for their most special day. My favourite style for weddings is soft, pretty, effortless makeup and hair with a touch of Hollywood glam. My aim is to make sure you walk down the aisle feeling the best version of yourself - like a million dollars.
An actor’s makeup and hair has to last perfectly for 12 hours or more on a movie set, and with cinema screens averaging 70ft, not a single hair can be out of place. My extensive experience in the film industry means that you will be camera ready and your make-up will last all day and into the night. The only thing you will need to top up is your lipstick.
Make-up and hair is such a personal thing and I don’t believe in ‘one-style-fits-all’ makeup and hair for weddings. At the trial, I like to get to know you, your likes and dislikes and the style of wedding you have chosen so that I can tailor your makeup and hair to your personality.
And wedding makeup and hair is so much more than products and styling. I am used to working under pressure, with clients regularly commenting on how calm I am, as emotions can run high on a wedding morning even when everything goes to plan. I will cover body spots, marks and tattoos and fix any dodgy fake tan marks you might have! I have even buttoned up dresses. I won’t leave until I know you are absolutely happy.
I am happy to do makeup or hair only bookings, as well as both.
If you have a larger wedding party I can also bring one of my trusted assistants to help to get you all ready for your ceremony.
I have a full luxury makeup and hair kit and I am fully insured for public liability.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions at all. I will look forward to meeting you!
