We offer a number of Wedding Packages to help make your special day complete. The main feature of all our Wedding Packages is the service of a make up artist to expertly apply the brides’ makeup; she can also makeup bridesmaids and other members of the wedding party. A trial is always carried out well before your wedding to ensure you get the look you want and then the therapist can travel to your home or wedding venue to apply the makeup on your big day.
We can also offer packages which include a Deluxe Manicure and/or Pedicure and facial treatments to prepare you for your wedding. Why not give us a call to discuss your specific requirements?
**Three months to Go**
Find a make up artist and book the day and also a trial run. Remember to take a sample of the colour of your wedding dress and any other colours such as bridesmaid’s dresses. We don’t wear white every day and your make up will look different if you’re wearing a lighter colour. Be careful you don’t go for a too dramatic look – you want the groom to see you, the dress and your happiness and not the make-up!
For stress relief try Yoga or Pilates. Exercising will also increase your circulation, which in turn gets more oxygen to your skin and brain.
