Chrys Chapman
I started my professional journey in Malibu, California and though I've traded in my flip flops and sandy beaches for Wellington boots and the Yorkshire Dales, I still retain that sense of effortless, Boho glamour.

I specialise in creating timeless makeup and hair looks, that will always be flattering and flawless. I am passionate about helping my clients achieve looks that are fresh, polished and elegant. That's the mood I bring to my bridal clients, my 1:1 lessons and even my fashion collaborations, including Alfred and Angelo and Jenny Packham.

My job can take me to destinations far and wide, but the best part of what I do is helping my clients feel like the very best version of themselves every single day.

Where/when do the trials take place?

Because I am mobile, I can be very flexible with trial days and times, as long as I have plenty of notice. Trials take place at a location agreed upon between myself and my client. This can be the client's home, my own studio in Harrogate or another location. I have gone to the bride's parent's homes, homes of bridesmaids, I've even arranged trials at hotels when the bride and I have been many miles apart and we needed to find somewhere in the middle. There is always a solution to finding an appropriate time and venue for a trial and I'm always happy to take the lead in finding it.

How long does a trial take?

A trial can take anything from an hour to three hours, depending on if it's makeup or hair only or both. I also offer 1:1 lessons that can be integrated into the trial.

Do I need to bring anything for the trial?

If you have any photos that give you a clearer picture of what you want that is always helpful, but I do recommend with photos that you come openminded as we can almost always create the feel of the look you bring, though recreating an exact look is not always the most appropriate choice. You want to look like you, on your very best day. Not like someone else.

When do your require final payment?

Final payment is due 2 weeks ahead of the wedding.

How long do you need on the wedding day?

This completely depends on the number of people in your party and what services you require. I have trained other artists who I have complete confidence in recommending and bringing in to assist if a party is very large, or if I have any concerns over timings. I work closely with my brides and her other suppliers to ensure the day runs as smoothly as possible, so that she is able to enjoy every moment.

What additional services do your offer?

In addition to hair and makeup I offer Hollywood lashes, Shellac Nails, Spray Tanning (Sienna X and Vita Liberata), brow shaping and tinting, facials and body massage.

Do you have any special offers?

I always offer my booked brides a special rate on addition services. The larger the party, the more able I am to offer more competitive pricing per person.

More info on my pricing

I create all my Bridal Packages & Prices on an individual basis, so that I can give my brides the best service and value. In addition to Makeup & Hair, I am fully qualified in Beauty & Massage so can create a completely bespoke package to meet your individual requirements, adding tanning, nails, facials or body massage adds an element of luxury that love to bring my clients.
