Describe your typical process with a couple.
On enquiring I like to know as many details as possible. Such as date, location, ceremony time, number of people and their roles (e.g bridesmaids, bride, mother of bride).

I allow plenty of time to do the brides makeup, as its a busy morning I don't want to be in a rush.
