NB: The importance of comprehensive wedding insurance cannot be stressed strongly enough. Insurance is for your protection and even more important than travel insurance, would you go on holiday without insurance?
All bookings are only considered as secure AFTER the payment of a non-refundable, non transferable deposit.
A breakdown of services, costs and a payment schedule will be sent with your booking confirmation. Securing your event date means the diary is closed, no further bookings will be taken at the same time, ensuring priority for your event and to protect your booking. For all bookings, the deposit is non refundable and non transferable.
Although there will be multiple opportunities to gain alternative fee paid work on your chosen date, these will have been declined in favour of your secured booking. A non refundable deposit protects clients and Alexia Jade. We recommend taking out a wedding insurance policy to help you recover deposits paid for any wedding services/trades you have booked and are non refundable in the event of a wedding cancellation. In addition to the aforementioned, please note
deposits are non refundable when a wedding is cancelled due to ‘an act of God’, unforeseen circumstances, prohibitive regulations by the government of any country or that arise directly or indirectly and in consequence of pandemic/notifiable disease/bacteria or contagion and variants of.
In the event that Alexia Jade cancels the booking, (apart from a cancellation due to breach of contract) monies will be returned to the client in full. Every effort will be made to find a replacement make up artist of the same skill and experience.
Payment for wedding bookings
Deposits are payable via bank transfer. The £200.00 deposit fee must be paid within 5 days of the booking enquiry in order to hold your wedding date (please allow sufficient time for funds to clear).
£200 covers the cost of the trials within the premier wedding service, trials cannot be booked separately. Your wedding date is not secured by booking a trial. The deposit fee also covers administrative duties and communications in connection to your booking.
After a successful trial, the event date must be secured within 5 days by making a 50% payment of the outstanding balance.
The remaining 50% of the outstanding balance (including additional expenses) must be paid in full, at least two weeks prior to the wedding day. International events require travel confirmation, travel tickets and accommodation bookings to be made at least 6 months prior to the journey commencement.
Trial bookings are available: Monday-Thursday, 10am-4pm (To be booked at least 60 days prior to the event date).
Please be aware that on the rare occasion, due to prior contractual engagements, it may be necessary to reschedule trial and tuition appointments. Every effort will be made to accommodate your needs and minimise any inconvenience caused.
If you book special occasion make-up and it becomes apparent that it is a wedding occasion (within immediate wedding party); I reserve the right to request the appropriate fee or withdraw all services on the day without further notice.
Payment for Special Occasion bookings
Your special occasion date, tuition booking or group booking is only considered as secure after receipt of the 50% deposit. Payment must be made within 5 days of the enquiry.
The balance must be paid in cash on the day or as cleared funds via bank transfer, prior to the booking.
