FAQ

When should I check you have my wedding date available?

Wedding bookings are made 12-18 months in advance so it's good to get in touch as soon as you confirm your major wedding vendors.

Please note - I only book a small number of weddings each season so my availability is limited and popular wedding dates including Saturdays are booked quickly**

I'm ready to secure you for my wedding! What do I do next? 

Let me know! Then I can send you your quote to review with your initial package details.

Then all you have to do is accept the quote, sign the T&C and make sure the booking payment is received then Yipee! The date is yours! 

Unfortunately, I cannot pencil dates due to the multiple requests for popular dates year on year.

Where does my Bridal preview take place?

Bridal Previews take place in my studio in Torbay, North Shore - Auckland unless you request this at your home. Travel fees will apply.

Where do you travel to?

My studio is in Torbay on the North Shore in Auckland, New Zealand.

Locations I frequent are the North Shore suburbs, Auckland City Central Hotels, Air BnB's, Waiheke Island, Kumeu, Coatesville and surrounding areas, Orewa, Warkworth, Matakana.

Enquire for travel & accomodation rates.

What hair extensions do you recommend?

Clip in hair extensions are very common in creating the trending, bridal hairstyles you see today across TikTok, IG and Pinterest.

They act like scaffolding in the hair and provide fullness, length and longer lasting curls and waves.

I like using superior hair clip in extensions but there are many brands available online too. You can purchase superior hair directly from their shop and have them colour matched or I have a variety of extensions in my studio that are available for hire too.

Can I please speak to you about my wedding before I book?

Yes! You can book a free 15 minute discovery zoom call with me.

"To say I was happy is an understatement..."

Amy recently did my hair for my wedding. Amy was amazing. I told Amy my vision of what I wanted and the end result was even better than I expected.

Amy is so good at what she does, and uses quality products.

Could not recommend her enough!! - Chanelle Plume, Matakana

"Amy was awesome from start to finish"

At the bridal trial she managed to work out exactly what I wanted from a range of pictures and taking her time to execute the perfect hair for me.
She is a great communicator, on time and works incredibly hard to make everything perfect. I highly recommend Amy for your wedding.

- Natalie, Venue Matakana Estate
