It’s not long until you make it official with the love of your life, and no doubt you’re full of excitement and butterflies. It’s the beginning of a new chapter in your lives together, and you’ll want to cherish every moment of it. Amongst all of the madness (and excitement!), it’s easy for you to forget about the small, yet not so small details you need to consider before the big day. Our guide will ensure that you look every bit the blushing, glowing, beautiful bride when the day arrives, so keep scrolling if you don’t want to risk any fake-tan fiascos or makeup disasters.

HAIR AND MAKE-UP

Makeup

By now you should have narrowed down the two or three styles you like, and preparation is key if you want to look your very best, K-Midd style. If you’re going for your hair down, we particularly love the versatile Dry Texturizing Spray by Oribe, which adds lift at the roots, texture and volume, and is a clients favourite. Luckily, it also comes in a travel size so that you can keep this with you all day!  Whether you’re going for the natural I-woke-up-like-this, or a full blown Kardashian look, feeling comfortable and beautiful is a must. Minimum fuss, maximum impact.

BODY

Tan

Obviously you need the best of the best for your Wedding Day, and we’ve got the secret to a bronzed glow to rival Jennifer Anniston’s! Sienna X and Vitavita Liberata tanning products are both celeb favourites in the industry, no streaks, funny smelling fumes and they’re incredibly long lasting. Hey – you could even stretch your tan out until the honeymoon! If you’d prefer to build a tan over time, we recommend this St.Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower LotionLeading tanning expert, James Harknett, shares his tanning tips for brides: “There are finishes on the skin that compliment all complexions and occasions.” 

SKIN

Skin

Revive your skin care regime! Cleanse, tone, and moisturise every morning and night—and don’t forget to exfoliate twice a week. “Who cares if I don’t look radiant on my wedding day”, said no one, EVER. We also recommend that you book a facial… or three! To keep your skin looking plump and nourished between facials, try radiance treatment and mask, Good Genes by Sunday Riley; did someone say face lift in a bottle?

LAST BUT NOT LEAST… RELAX

massage

Wedding planning at this crucial stage is stressful, and don’t we know it! Book yourself a massage and enjoy a bit of relaxation and pampering to de-stress. Spoil yourself – you deserve it.

We offer Bridal Packages, as well as hair and makeup packages, starting from £92.

Every November, men worldwide stop shaving their upper lip in the name of men’s health. It all started in 2003 in Australia when 30 guys got together in an effort to bring the moustache back.

They decided to use this as a chance to raise money and awareness for prostate cancer. Having expanded to the current 21 participating countries, including UK, USA and Canada, Mo Bro’s have now raised over £443m!

Funds go towards research for prostate and testicular cancer as well as mental health. By 2030 the Mo Bros’ aim to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.
