Wedding Countdown

As Craig David once crooned way back when, a lot can happen in 7 days! With just one week to go until the big day, we’re hoping that your beauty prep plan is set in stone. Even so, we’ve listed a few top tips that will help you be the best version of yourself that you can possibly be.

DAY 7

Diet

Add that extra bit of HIIT training to help you burn fat in a short space of time! You must try one of our favourite cycle classes by Psycle London, offering high intensity, low impact, head to toe workouts on a bike – believe us when we say you’ll leave their studio on an exercise HIGH!

DAY 6

Facial

Why not try our Anti Age Facial, a treatment that purifies, nourishes and tones the skin? If not, we love the Bio Lifting Mask by CHANTECAILLE. Often described as a face-lift in a jar, the revitalising and cooling formula virtually irons out your face! If you have sensitive skin however, stick to calming facials before you try out new products so soon to the wedding.

DAY 5

Food

Step away from the G&T! Cut back on alcohol, salt and other foods that make you bloat, and incorporate green juices to maximise on de-bloating and antioxidant consumption/ digestion. If you don’t have time to prepare everything yourself then try out celebrity favourite, Plenish Juice Clease, a premium delivery service offering fresh, juice cleanses – they even have specialised Bridal packages to help boost energy levels, achieve glowing skin, and lose a few pounds! Food wise, think veggies, healthy fats like avocado and fatty fish like salmon, loaded with skin-glowing antioxidants, they’re perfect for pre wedding day prep.

DAY 4

Brows

You must have planned your waxing and threading for around now, but why not give eyebrow mapping a try? Experts determine exactly where your ideal brow should start, arch and end #eyebrowenvy. We’re so into this treatment, take a look at Benefit’s free of charge brow-mapping service, and see what a well-shaped brow can do for your face!

DAY 3

Massage

What the bride wants, the bride gets 😉 Destress with one of our Deep Tissue Massages… any excuse!

DAY BEFORE

Nails A

Mani and Pedi time! Check out OPI’s amazing range of Nudes and taupes to suit your skin tone here. Choose from best-selling beige tinged taupes like ‘Berlin There Done That‘ or try a taste of sweet creamy nudes like ‘Dulce De Leche‘ to achieve the look of naked nails.

Nails

Take a moment to step back and relax. All of your hard work, (tantrums) and excitement have all been leading up to tomorrow; now it’s time to enjoy the best day of your life. Promise.

Male groom

This blog is for all of the men out there, the courageous souls who are about to say “I do”. There’s many a guide written to help future brides prepare for their wedding, yet certainly not enough dedicated to all of the fellas that are also awaiting one of the biggest, special and important days of their lives. Preparation is key if you want to look and feel your best alongside your new stunning wife and let’s face it, you’re probably going to need our help. Gentlemen, it’s time to get your s***together. 

EAT CLEAN

Diet


This doesn’t mean eating ‘rabbit food’, it means fuelling your body with the right stuff. Cut out the junk – protein, healthy fats and whole grains are the only foods you’ll be bingeing on for the next few weeks! If you don’t have time to prepare everything yourself then try out celebrity favourite, Fresh Fitness Food, a premium delivery service offering fresh, quality food that is customised to your exact needs by specialised nutrition guru’s.

TRAIN MEAN

Train

If you don’t already go to the gym, then you’re probably not going to be able to pull off Chris Hemsworth’s abs in a month – tears all round! However, you do have time to make a difference, so get pumping that iron. If you’re looking for an extra push in the right direction, then check out our list of London’s best personal training studios –  one-on-one training from a personal trainer and a professional nutritionist will work wonders in motivating you. Exercise also helps bump up the production of your brain’s feel-good endorphin’s, so it’s a win win. 

KEEP IT PRETTY

Face

Start with washing twice a day and take a look at some of the face creams or post-shave treatments that are available for men, like Khiel’s Ultimate Man Series – you’ll be surprised at how easily this becomes a routine and you might even start to like it. If you’re totally unsure give us a call and we’ll bring our spa to you, and don’t worry, no man points lost around here!

CATCH ZZZ’S

Sleeping

As we mentioned last week, getting enough sleep has huge benefits for your physical and mental health, so try to prioritise getting some rest in the weeks approaching the big day. No more working after hours in the office, or Netflix binge-watching! If you really want to unwind then now is your excuse to book that much needed massage.

We offer various treatments including facials and massages, starting from £68.

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.
