Customers are required to pay the full amount for the trial on the day of the trial. 24 hours notice must be given if you wish to cancel or reschedule an appointment. Failure to do so means you will be charged the full cost of the appointment.

Booking your date

Your booking will not be locked in until a non-refundable booking fee of $80.00 for wedding bookings, or $50.00 for special occasion bookings has been paid. You can have a trial before securing the final date if desired, however we will not be held responsible if your date gets taken by another client who is willing to put a deposit down on the same date.

Payments & Fees

The person(s) scheduling the appointment will be responsible for full payment of all services in the event that other people in the wedding party do not pay their portion. Payments for the hair and makeup services taking place on the booking day can be paid in advance if the client wishes. There is a minimum call out fee of $170.00 or minimum of 2 clients for all bookings on location. Public Holidays will incur an additional $50.00 fee on top of regular charges. Early start times commencing before 6.30am will also incur an additional fee of $25.00 for every half hour before 6.30am.  



Katie Dawson - Makeup Artist does not offer refunds for any completed services; therefore if you are in any way dissatisfied, the onus is on the client to notify the stylist whilst they are on location.



You are asked kindly to give us a minimum of 24 hours notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your trial appointment.  Cancellations or missed appointments without prior notice will be charged the full cost of the appointment. No refund will be given for booking fees. All wedding deposits are non-refundable. Cancellation of any wedding day booking must be given in writing, by post or email and will only be confirmed upon receiving this. The following cancellation fees apply if:

Time management is of the essence therefore adherence to appointment times is critical in ensuring that Katie delivers the service you expect. Therefore when making appointment times, please note that these times will be strictly adhered to. Should unforeseen circumstances arise, the onus is on the bride to advise Katie as soon as possible. Katie is not responsible if desired completion time is not met due to wedding party delays.


Travel/Parking Fees

A travel fee may be incurred depending on distance required to travel. In the event that any hotel/motel and public parking fees are incurred as a result of the location of the appointment, these will need to be paid for by the client on behalf of Katie.


Health & Sanitation
