Disclaimer/ Important Information

[Last updated November 2017]

4 Brides is an online marketplace. Our online services provide a platform for introductions between people wanting to find makeup artists and hair stylists, and high quality Marketplace Suppliers who agree to a code of ethics.

We believe that Marketplace Suppliers who advertise via our Marketplace provide services of a professional standard. We make no recommendations in respect of the services offered. You must exercise your own judgment based upon your own personal circumstances before purchasing any products or services.

4 Brides is a proud member of Ethical Wedding Professionals and abides by the Code of Ethics [link], ensuring all brides receive the highest level of service and integrity from our Marketplace at all times.

When you book a makeup artist or hair stylist through the 4 Brides marketplace, you will be entering into an independent agreement with that Marketplace Supplier.

Marketplace Suppliers are not employees, agents or subcontractors of 4 Brides. 4 Brides takes bookings and receives payments for services as an agent for the Marketplace Supplier you select.   

You agree to use the 4 Brides Marketplace at your own risk and you acknowledge that 4 Brides does not provide any services, and so cannot be responsible for the services provided, or any consequences arising as a result of those services.

Please choose your services carefully. Changes to bookings made less than 120 days before your big day will attract cancellation fees.

Our online services are provided without express or implied warranty, save those implied warranties that, under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth), cannot be excluded.

To the extent permitted by law, our liability for breach of any implied warranty or condition that cannot be excluded, is restricted at our sole discretion to the resupply of our services, or replacement or refund of defective products.

You agree that our total liability is limited to the amount of payment received by us from you for products or services in the 12 months before your claim, even if that amount is zero.

End.


Resolving Disputes

[Last updated November 2017]

1. Communication on the Marketplace

(a) We encourage you to contact your Marketplace Supplier directly and raise any concerns with them before escalating your complaint. Sometimes a quick phone call can make all the difference.

(b) If you have tried to resolve concerns with your Marketplace Supplier directly without success, please contact us and tell us what your concern is, and what you would like us to do to resolve it. We will discuss your concerns with the Marketplace Supplier to seek a solution, where appropriate. If not appropriate, we will work with you to transfer your booking to a different Marketplace Supplier.

(c) If we believe your complaint or concerns are unreasonable, or result from an unrealistic expectation of the services, and are not the fault of the Marketplace Supplier, we will discuss possible solutions with you. If we are unable to resolve your concerns, we may cancel your booking. Cancellation fees may still apply.

2. Concerns on the day

(a) At all times communication is key between yourself and your makeup artist or hair stylist. They (are not mind readers but) want to create a style or look that you are happy with so welcome feedback and open communication.

(b) If you are not happy with the look being created for you, you are encouraged to immediately raise this with your Marketplace Supplier and provide them the opportunity to fix the problem straight away, or create a new look. If you are still not happy with the result, then your Marketplace Supplier will remove your makeup or undo your hairstyle (which may include wetting it down), and you will not be charged for that service.

(c) If you do not raise concerns or complaints with your Marketplace Supplier on the day, then you are deemed to have accepted and been satisfied with those services.

(d) We are not able to do anything to assist you after the day if you did not raise concerns on the day.

3. Products

(a) Products that are faulty, do not meet the description*, or are not what you ordered may be returned within 7 days of receipt for a full refund. Postage costs are not refunded. Please see our refunds policy.
