When did you start working in the
wedding industry? Sir Daniel has been in the wedding industry for
about 30 years and I (David) have been doing weddings for about 6 years. We
have been working as a team for 5 years and together we are thrilled to have
been a part of over 80 weddings last season.
What made you decide to go into the
wedding/event industry? It was a natural progression in the salon
industry to be a part of weddings. As our business grew, we noticed that Naples
and the surrounding area is destination wedding central and we wanted a piece
of the action. We love working with the brides. Sir Daniel keeps them
entertained and I keep them on schedule and when we are finished each bride has
their own unique look that is photo-ready and is exactly what they dreamed of.
How many hours do you spend working
with a client? For the average wedding client that
books at least 4 months in advance we spend between about 20 hours with
computer emails and phone calls before the wedding. We spend at least 2 hours
for a trial run, and then on average 5 hours day of wedding totaling 27 hours.
How long is your average wedding day
from start to finish? We like to do multiple weddings on the same day.
On typical multiple wedding day in season we have to be out the door by 7:30 am
and we are finished between 6 and 7 pm.
What can brides do to so that you
can do a better job for them on their wedding day? We are so thankful that most of our
brides are very prepared. One big thing that can make our day run much smoother
is to have their skin and hair prepped. Prepped hair means that it is clean and
dry - with NO styling products in it. Let us add the product in, and this way
your hairstyle will last all night. For the skin we like it to be clean and
moisturized and sunburn free. Many of our girls from out of town don’t realize
that it takes just minutes in the Florida sun to get badly sunburned - it can
be covered with makeup most of the time. However, if the burn is severe and
fresh the makeup will not adhere and we also have a very uncomfortable girl.
What is your favorite part of your
job? I love the actual day of the wedding, all of the
hustle and bustle of the day and excitement!
What is the most difficult part of
your job? The most difficult part of my job is
when a bride calls and I am already booked for her wedding date, I hate that.
What is your favorite part of a
wedding? Our favorite part of the weddings is
the toast. You really get the inside scoop from the bridal party…;)
If you were to do a destination
wedding anywhere in the world, where would it be? We would love to do a wedding in Italy;
it’s so beautiful over there!
What is your favorite…
