Indian & Asian wedding makeup
Over the years I have had many, many beautiful Indian and Asian brides as clients – and I have been lucky enough to receive many word-of-mouth recommendations from them as a result.
Many Indian brides are after a wedding makeup look that respects the traditions of the ceremony yet is a slightly more stylised, professional and polished look that suits a more contemporary wedding.
A stunning and elegant Asian or Indian wedding can be quite different from Western ceremonies. I understand the very early morning starts, the ceremonies that can last all day (or even a few days!) the various changes of bridal gown and the need for different hairstyles and makeup looks to reflect the different parts of the ceremony.
Indian & Asian Bridal
Bride’s makeup and hair consultation = £150 (single event)
Bride’s makeup and hair consultation = £200 (multi event)
Any other adult hair & makeup consultation = £100 (single event)
Any other adult makeup only consultation = £90
Any other adult hair only consultation = £70
A wedding consultation is usually held 3 months before your wedding day, or earlier if you wish. You can come to me in Sutton or I can come to your home* depending on where you live, whichever is more convenient.
The consultation lasts approximately 3 hours for a single event and up to 5 hours for multi-event bookings. The consultation is VERY important as it gives us the chance to meet, decide your chosen look for each event, and discuss matters in a relaxed atmosphere.
You are very welcome to bring any accessories, jewellery, plus a friend or family member if you would like to,
*Travel fees may apply.
We will discuss any ideas you may have for each event, any photos you may have of your outfits/dress/accessories are also helpful to see to give me an idea of a suitable look for both hair and makeup.
You may already have an idea of how you would like to look on your wedding day, but if not, don’t worry! I have full hair and makeup kit, full of the very best products, and plenty of inspiration!
On the day I would be very happy to help you dress, and fix your tikka, dupatta etc, for a small extra fee (TBC)

Wedding Day Prices
Indian weddings are often treated as bespoke packages due to the very different requirements of nearly each and every one.
As a rough guide, prices are as follows:
Bridal makeup = from £220
Bridal Hair = from £170
Bridesmaids makeup = from £110
Bridesmaids hair = from £60
Early morning fee = £50
(for exceptionally early starts, this fee may increase. This will be discussed in advance)
A hotel contribution fee of £50 is required for long-distance weddings that need me to travel to the location the day before. Again, this would be discussed in advance.
I can be booked for destination weddings and would put a bespoke package together for you. The cost would include any flights, transfers and accommodation.
Special bespoke packages available
I’m happy to create bespoke pricing packages for wedding ceremonies that span several days and locations, as I know this can sometimes be a feature of Indian and Asian weddings.
This might include things such as applying different makeup looks and hairstyles for different ceremonies, being available for whole days, travelling to and from different wedding event locations, assisting with dress changes.
I am always available for an informal chat about how we can work together. Simply call me or text me on +44 (0)7956 396 308.
“Kaz Fernando was nothing short of incredible throughout my wedding. I wanted to steer clear of the heavy Indian bridal make-up as it’s not my style – and Kaz managed to create dramatic, striking looks without ever going too heavy at all – she built up each look gradually until we got to a point where both of us were very happy with the end result. Aside from the make-up, it was just a pleasure to have Kaz around – she was calm, relaxed and helped me stay stress-free throughout the whole weekend.”
