Flame Beauty – Booking Terms & Conditions

Booking Fees

When booking the bridal trial, Flame Beauty (the ‘Artist’) will reserve the date and time for the Client’s wedding upon the receipt of the Initial Booking Fee from the Client at the rate of 25% of the Total Price, as a NON REFUNDABLE BOOKING FEE toward the agreed services to be provided at the agreed Total Price stated.

A further booking fee (the Trial Booking Fee) of 25% of the total price will be payable by the Client on the date that the Wedding Trial takes place. However, if the Client decides within 48 hours after the Wedding Trial date that the services of the Artist are no longer required, then the cost of the Wedding Trial will be deducted from the total of the Initial Booking Fee and the Further Booking Fee and any balance returned to the Client. If the Client decides that the services of the Artist are no longer required more than 48 hours after the Wedding Trial has taken place, then the total of both the Initial Booking Fee and Trial Booking Fee will be retained by the Artist as Non Refundable Booking Fees.

Balance of Total Price

The remaining balance of the Total Price will be due and payable on the day of the wedding.  Payments will be taken in cash, by BACS TRANSFER or PAYPAL. BACS or PAYPAL transfers to be made in the week prior to the wedding.

Changes to the Booking

If it is necessary for the Client to change or reschedule the wedding to a different date or time and the Client provides a minimum of 60 days notice of a revised date or time, then the Artist will apply the Initial Booking Fee to the new date or time subject to availability. In the event that the Artist is unavailable, an alternative artist will be offered subject to availability in line with these terms.

In the event that the Client may need to amend any of the above Booking Details, the Client agrees to urgently communicate these changes to the Artist by phone or e-mail. The Client understands that no amendments will be considered until written confirmation (e-mail is acceptable) has been received.

The Artist hereby commits to making all reasonable endeavours to accommodate any such changes to Booking Details however, as a direct consequence of such changes, should the Artist find, at its sole discretion, that it is unable to provide the services, the Client agrees that this will constitute a cancellation on the part of the Client.

If there are any changes to the numbers in the booking, the Client agrees to inform the Artist as soon as possible. If the numbers in the party decrease within 14 days prior to the wedding date, the Client understands that they will still be charged for the original numbers.  Those persons who are included in this contract are guaranteed services and, if time allows, additional clients can be added, on or before the wedding date for additional fees.

Consultation (the “Wedding Trial”)

The Artist cannot guarantee or be held accountable for any allergic reactions, or any complications from the make-up or the application if a prior consultation (Trial) was not performed.
