So there are plenty things about your wedding that you just can’t control, the weather, the best mans speech or who will catch the bouquet and be the next bride. So why not stick to what you can control, like making sure you have fabulous make up and gorgeous skin underneath.
Our team of skin and make up pros have lots of experience with every type of bride, from the most laid back who takes it all in stride to the most nervous who needs (and quite rightly so) ever detail about the big day to be just perfect!
So, here is our guide to when to start thinking about your skin and make up ahead of one of the biggest days of your life!

This is a great amount of time for us to work our magic. Treatments such as IPL Skin Rejuvenation, IPL Hair Removal, Advanced Electrolysis and Micro Needling are all brilliant but they need time for the best results to shine through. If you have concerns with breakouts, scarring, pigmentation or have lumps and bumps on your skin you rather weren’t there then now is the time to visit our team. We will also advise on the best home care routine for your skin and put you in touch with our make up artist, Colette, who can start to put dates in the diary and discuss all of your make up queries.

Brilliant things can happen is such a short space of time. It’s definitely time to be thinking eyebrows and having them shaped to perfection. Make up artists find it so much easier to perfect their work with a flawless canvas to work on, so rogue hairs need to be removed! It’s also a great time to have one final glycolic peel, not the scary kind that you read about in magazines but the gentle, hydrating kind (yes, they do that too!), to help remove any dead skin cells and leave your skin bright and radiant.
Then it’s over to Colette to transform you on the day itself.
