Can you accommodate larger parties?
YES! I love an intimate wedding, but sometimes we have bridal parties that require more than one artist to ensure timings run smoothly (and so that you're not up at the crack of dawn). I work with a small team of fully trained freelancers who are all incredible in their own right. We love a big wedding party so the sky is the limit.
Do you offer any other services?
YES! I'm also a brow and lash artist (LVL, Extensions, SVS, Brow lamination and definition) and skin specialist and offer a discount on beauty services to my brides and anyone in their party from the time of booking until the big day. I offer a beauty bar service as an add on service -- to take you and your guests from day to evening or for those wanting to add a festival vibe I can offer a glitter bar.
Do you have a price list?
All my bridal package quotes are completely bespoke to your requirements. If you would like a quote that's just for you pop me a message and I'll get back to you ASAP with your bespoke quote.
Trials... tell me everything?!
I always include a trial in your bridal package price. I think it's essential for a great result and happy wedding morning. I hold all trials at my studio, which keeps everything Covid Secure and keeps any travel fees low. I'm happy for you to bring someone with you on your trial day (dependent on any government restrictions) and additional trials for mums, bridesmaids, etc can be arranged if required.
What brands do you use?
Holy Moly!! I use a lot of different brands! I'm constantly trying new products and ranges, and always road test things before adding them to my kit. You'll find the following brands in my kit, but this is by no means exhaustive: Makeup/ Skincare Hourglass, Charlotte Tilbury, Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown, MAC, Nars, Urban Decay, Glossier, Cover FX, Fenty, Iconic and Kiko Hair Tigi, Paul Mitchell, Moroccan Oil, Design.ME, GHD, Cloud9
Chrys did make up, hair and a few beauty treatments for my wedding. She is just fabulous! Such a warm, smiley and friendly person, you feel at ease straight away. The trial was brilliant and she captured exactly what I was looking for. On the day she was wonderful to have around, I was an emotional wreck and she persevered with my makeup and I felt fabulous. Even though she was hosting and celebrating thanksgiving she insisted that if I cried and needed my makeup redoing she would come back and help me touch up. Such a wonderful person and a real treasure to find. Thank you so much Chrys xxx
Couldn't recommend Chrys enough - so much so that everyone in the bridal party is still talking about what a fantastic job she did! I was a little nervous at our trial, but everything was very Covid safe and I was made to feel so comfortable. On my wedding morning, Chrys was there bright and early to set up and get everyone ready and she was a beacon of warmth and calm all morning. She somehow managed to do my make up so well that it looked perfect all day - considering there were enough happy tears to leave me dehydrated, I've no idea how Chrys got my eye make up stay on! Essentially, you need Chrys with you on your wedding morning - Aside from doing a truly excellent job on hair and make up, she took away lots of the general wedding stresses. Thank you for being part of our day, Chrys. You were brilliant. xx
I cannot recommend Chrys enough! She did hair and make up for myself and my bridal party and we were all so happy with the service. Chrys made me feel at ease from the moment I met her. I felt I was in safe hands throughout the enquiry process, the trial and on the big day. She looked through several photos of different hairstyles with me and gave me exactly what I wanted! My make up was natural, as I'd asked, but also made me feel fantastic. She'd told me she would make me feel like 'the best version' of me and she really did! She was so approachable, accommodating and professional, whilst still making me feel like I'd known her for years. I have such special memories of getting ready on my wedding day and she 100% contributed to that! Thank you Chrys - you're amazing!
There is simply no-one like Chrys Chapman. As a bride I cannot tell you how important it is for someone to just understand what you have in mind and do everything they can to help guide you in the right direction to achieve it. Chrys will never try and make you have something you don't need but she will equally gently guide you away from anything which may not suit you. She LISTENS. And that may not sound like a revelation but it is and do you know why? Because Chrys genuinely cares. I honestly believe she makes every one of her brides and their tribe her friends for life because she is so great you don't want to lose her when the wedding is over. She wants to make you look and feel like the best version of yourself on your day. Not turn you into something you’re not. Chrys is all about complementing you, not changing you and that is what sets her apart from every other hair and make-up artist. As if that wasn't enough, she is a one man shop! She can do almost any beauty treatment you like, she can do almost any style you like, she gives make-up lessons, she gives skin care regime advice, she does parties and if she hasn't done it before but you want it she is always open to ideas. She is also a personal reference for all the best suppliers in her area!!! I only wish I'd found her sooner!
Chrys did hair and makeup for me, my maid of honour and my mum on my wedding day. What can I say, there are literally no words to describe how fantastic she actually is. Not just her ability to transform you into a beautiful princess on the day of your wedding but also her ability to keep you calm and relaxed in a very stressful environment. Not only did Chrys do the most fantastic job on all our hair and makeup, she was there to help me into my dress, keep track of time, stop us flapping when we ran out of time and ensure we got to the wedding on time. I would recommend Chrys without hesitation to any future bride and bridal party. Thank you Chrys - you are simply the best!!!
