Bookings

 

In order to secure my services on a particular date for special occasions, photo shoots or weddings, a signed or email contract is required with a non refundable booking fee at the time of booking. This fee varies depending on the type of make-up service but for weddings a £75 fee is charged for bookings of 3 people or more people. A date is only secure once deposit/booking fee has been made. A wedding date will be reserved for 7 days, in which time if no deposit is received the date will automatically be reopened and available to other clients.

 

Quotations for any booking are free to obtain and are under no obligation to book.

 

Booking times

 

A start and end time will be agreed between the client and Amy Collins Make-up Artist.

When reserving your date please book accordingly .Any additional make-up needs outside the contract will only be performed at the discretion of the MUA.
