IMHO, a light amount of natural makeup applied carefully for pictures will accentuate your natural beauty in pictures. Def. go and get a trial done ... tell them very firmly that you want a natural look and take some before and after pictures. I would also style your hair in a similar manner that you are for your wedding day; so you can get the entire picture. Then go with whichever look you feel best in.
I tend to wear very natural looking makeup and half the time FI cannot tell if I am wearing it or not... LOL. They are men and bless their little hearts; sometimes if they are not around when we are getting ready, they think that we just wake up every day looking good.

An alternative to foundation: tinted moisturizer - very practical because you wear moisturizer anyway! However, tinted moisturizers contain SPF which has titanium dioxide. This isn't ideal for photography because you may get a grey-ish tint from the camera flash.
Anyway, why not give the makeup trial a chance? Bring pictures of what you like! Here are a couple great portfolios:

Good luck! The most important thing is for you to feel happy and comfortable!
