You should allow an hour for each hairdo, 30 minutes for each makeup, plus an hour of extra time afterward just to be safe.  If the hairdos are fairly simple or easy, then you won’t need a whole hour.  How many hairstylists do you have?  How many makeup artists?

If your makeup artist can meet you at the salon, that will definitely help.  She can do people’s makeup as they finish getting their hair done.  With that many stylists, you should be able to get everyone’s hair done by 11, and the makeup artist will probably be working until noonish to finish up, depending on how fast she is.

Your photographer is right; 1.5 hours is plenty of time for bride/groom and bridal party photos.  Maybe you can aim to start those around 1:30 (that gives you plenty of time for lunch).  Then by 3:00, you’re free for family portraits.

If you have to travel considerable distances between salon and photo location and ceremony, make sure you factor travel time into the equation.  Also, give yourself a half hour’s breathing room in between everything if possible.
