Wedding makeup artist in Cambridgeshire

Bespoke Bridal Hair and Makeup

Terms & Conditions

Please read and understand the terms and conditions before paying deposit. 

Deposits must be paid within ten days of dated invoice to secure your booking or by the payment date specified

Minimum number of guests and location must be finalised at the time of booking.

A minimum service charge of £400 is required during peak season (Fridays and Saturdays during April to October months)

If for any reason a member of the bridal party or guest pulls out, the pricing will not be altered due to loss of earnings. Your balance owing will remain the same as per invoice. Extra guests may be added subject to availability

Any known allergies must be declared at the time of booking. This ensures ingredients can be checked against the artists products. If the artist/stylists products are not suitable for the client, then the client will have to provide some of their own products.

Assistant- if a booking is not possible for me to complete on my own due to time constraints, an assistant can be booked for an additional £50 per assistant needed.

Individual lash clusters are included in price of makeup service. Strip lashes are an additional fee or client to buy their own and can be applied for no extra fee. If individual lashes are not required, there is no reduction in any makeup service if declined.

Hair accessories can be viewed and tried during your trial, if you then would like to go ahead and purchase the accessories this will be billed separately to hair and makeup and payment would be due in full for me to make the order for you. Hair accessories I supply are exclusive to Victoria Louise Accessories and a small range is viewable on my website.


Trials are recommended approximately 2-3 months prior to your wedding. Trials are only performed in my home studio in Sawtry Cambridgeshire.

Trials can be booked from Monday to Friday day time. Please note trials cannot take place on a weekend due to wedding commitments and I no longer work Sundays.

You may book a trial before paying a deposit, however this will not secure your wedding date. Should a client wish to pay a deposit for the same date, that payment will be accepted and we will advise you that date is longer available.

Please allow 1.5 hours for your trial per hair or/and makeup service.

Please note the styling doesn’t include a blow drying service. You must arrive with clean dry hair otherwise this runs into additional time. If a member of your bridal party just requires a blow dry please ask separately, as this is not a service I provide.

If you do not wish to proceed with the booking after the trial then you agree to notify Makeup by Sam within 7 days of having the initial trial, failure to do so will mean the full wedding balance is still payable


All prices are subject to change without any notice. All invoices issued to clients who have already paid a deposit before a price increase occurs will not be affected.

Travel fees are calculated by distance and you will receive a quote once location is known. An accurate address must be provided when filling out your application form.

Parking fees will apply for hotels. This fee is additional to travel cost.

The full remaining balance can be paid 14 days prior via bank transfer.

We do not offer a refund on completed work. If you are unhappy in any way, notify us at the time of your styling.

When sending through images of styles you like, please consider using photos of stylists own work or similar.

These terms and conditions may be changed and/or updated at any time at the discretion of Makeup by Sam/ Sam Kay


All deposit payments are strictly non-refundable.  This also applies to weddings that have been cancelled for personal reasons.

Credit may be offered in exceptional circumstances.

The following cancellation fees apply if notification of booking cancellation is received:

  • More than 14 days prior to booking date = Loss of £200 deposit
  • 7 to 14 days prior to booking date = 50% of invoiced amount
  • Less than 7 days to booking date = 100% of invoiced amount

Notification of cancellation in writing is required.

The above timeframes refer to a booking date beginning at Midnight (12:00am)
on the booking date;

eg. A Saturday booking cancellation would require notification in writing by 11:59pm on the Friday 8 days prior to incur a 50% fee rather than 100%,


11:59pm on the Friday 15 days prior to incur loss of £200 deposit only

If your hairstylist/makeup artist is unable to attend the wedding due to unforeseen circumstances then a replacement Makeup Artist/Hairstylist will be provided. Failing this the wedding cost will be refunded.
