Why choose beauty professionals for your special day?
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and the most photographed! Your wedding look must be flawless all day long from when it is applied, to when you finally reach your hotel room at the end of the night. This can be up to 12-15 hours. You don't want your hair falling out of place or your makeup fading! On top of this, your makeup must be camera friendly, typically for both indoor and outdoor photographs, as well as taking into account the time of day as this will affect how you appear in your photographs. At Jellis Beauty, we can tailor a look to suit what ever your style is, whilst still ensuring that look will be camera friendly, long lasting and flawless.
What can you expect when you book us for your wedding?
Our team at Jellis Beauty pride ourselves in our work, and we offer you a premium service where you feel pampered and relaxed. Today is all about you; We are efficient, but we will not rush through your makeup, and our attention to detail on every aspect of your makeup application will guarantee you will look your most beautiful for your special day.
What makes us different?
Lots of things. We offer a premium bridal service, because you, as our wonderful bride, deserve no less. Firstly, Our own Jennifer Ellis was personally chosen to work alongside renowned International Makeup Artist Educator, Donna Mee in California, and has taken advanced master classes with Donna Mee in every possible subject to truly understand the science of makeup applications. Jennifer has brought this knowledge back to our team to ensure that all team members have the best knowledge available worldwide. (read more about our team members HERE)
We completely understand colour theory and how to best enhance your features whilst still ensuring you feel like "you". All team members went through a rigorous process to be accepted onto our team and have the highest standards of application and hygiene. Did you know bad hygiene has left people with infections, pink eye and worse still - paralysed! We hold with great honour, your trust in us and have very strict standards of hygiene for all our services. We are friendly and personable.
Wedding days can be a lot of work for hair stylists and makeup artists as there are typical 5+ people to get ready. We LOVE what we do, so the time flies for us. You won't hear us complaining, or requesting breaks. We are there for you, and we do it with a smile because we genuinely love our work, and we know that it is thanks to our gorgeous brides that our career is so amazing.
We will always go above and beyond for you. Our passion is service. This means we are friendly, professional and passionate about giving you the best experience possible as we know how important your wedding is to you. Your wedding day look is very important, but even more so - is the way you are treated!
Are our Rates Competitive?
Yes our rates are very competitive. We know that our knowledge of beauty, and the wedding industry sets us apart from the rest. But we still keep our rates in line with the competition. As with any profession, there are industry leaders, and there are people fresh out of college with the absolute best intentions, but lack the experience. We are the industry leaders, priding ourselves on our service skills, our work ethic, our passion and our skills. We take our job very seriously, and we genuinely care about how happy you are with your wedding look, because this is a day that is going to be in your heart and memories forever. It is not a decision to make lightly.
A Professional Makeup Artist needs to be aware of many things to get your look “just right”. The time of day, the lighting, where the photos are being taken (inside, outside or both), your personal style and personality, you features, colouring, bone structure, & skin type. A Professional Hair Stylist needs to make sure the style suits your face shape and that it will last the entire day/night. We all hear horror stories of fake tans looking orange, and your nails are an extremely important factor that is often overlooked - but remember - every single guest is going to request to view your rings! You want to be confident your nails look their best!
Your Preview Consultation
We will book in a time with you to go through all the details of your wedding, as well as a makeup and a hair styling preview. We will gain an understanding of your style and personality and will tailor a look to suit you. You are encouraged to research types of looks that spark your interest, and bring these images along to the preview.
We will then provide suggestions to work with your desired look, and ensure your specific features are enhanced. We will analyze your skin and provide you recommendations to have your skin looking its best for your wedding. We will apply a trial application to make sure we are 100% on the same page for your special day. We will photograph the look you agree on and will send this to you, so you will have an idea of how you will look in your photographs.
Makeup Appointments: Please arrive at your preview consultation with your everyday makeup. We do not expect you to arrive without any makeup unless that is your typical look. We will remove your makeup and apply your bridal makeup during our session.
Hair Appointments: Please arrive with one day old hair. Hair that has been freshly washed the same day is very soft and does not style as well. Similarly hair that hasn't been washed for days also does not style well. This is why we recommend washing the day/night before our booking.
You are encouraged to bring photos of your dress, the flowers and venue. The style of the dress as well as the material is a consideration when applying your makeup, as is the type of flowers and their colour. Essentially, the more information you can provide us, the more cohesive your look will be with your entire wedding style.
Previews are held in our studio in Leda. You may request us to come to you, and there will be a call out fee if we are to leave our studio. We offer a number of appointment times for your to select from when we send you the contract.
Of course, leading up to your big day, you will have many wedding related events that you will be attending, such as your engagement photo shoot, bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner, and bridal shower.
Be sure to ask us about designing a package to include makeup/hair services for these events also, as you will receive a special discount when taking advantage of a package deal to add these additional services.
Have you heard of a "Trash the Dress" photo shoot? These are so much fun and a great way to wear your dress after your big day. Ask us for more information.
