If there is a charge to park at the wedding venue/bridal location these charges must be covered by the bride
my top tips for your wedding day…
… drink lots of waternk lots of
its true the more water we drink the healthier our skin will look! aim for 2-3 litres a day to get your skin glowing on your wedding day. If your skin is hydrated the makeup will apply and look more flawless
…eat the rainbow
eating the rainbow generally means you will achieve a healthy balanced diet and our skin absolutely loves this, aim for a variety of fruit, vegetables and fish or vegan alternatives and try and keep sugar, gluten and dairy to a minimum
do not underestimate the power of a great skincare routine! Make sure you are doing the basics of daily cleansing, toning & moisturising but its also important to use age appropriate additional products to really get the best out of your skin – let me help you with this
…self care Sunday
take time out to focus on you! planning a wedding is very enjoyable but it can also be consuming and stressful at times. Take an hour or two out of your week to concentrate on yourself and unwind your mind and skin will love it, a relaxing bath, spa treatment, long walk can really help to recharge yourself.
…bronze & glow
If you are considering having a spray tan on your wedding day it would be advisable to have a trial for that a couple of days before your makeup trial so that you can see what your final look will be like.
