DESTINATION WEDDINGS: If planning a wedding abroad we can travel to the destination. It is the same charges as getting married in the UK except flights, accommodation plus expenses for example transfers need to be covered. We also ask for a travel day to be included in the total charges as in many cases the stylist will travel the day before the wedding and spend most of the day travelling so we ask this to be included. It is the clients responsibility to arrange travel and accommodation for the artist.
