Are you about to become a Mrs?

25 January 2018

So we have started the year all fresh and bushy tailed and UBER excited to get into wedding season... In between meeting lots of couples viewing our unique wedding venue we have had some time to meet up with some great new suppliers on our radar!! In particular some great MUA's!!

First up on our introduction list was Alison from Alison Noble Make Up who is swapping life on the cobbles to work back to Kent! Alison braved a windy day to come and tell us a bit more about her and the work she has done at Coronation Street and many other shows!

After a chinwag and hearing all about Alison's style of work and her techniques I delved in for a bit more info about what brides (and grooms) can do to prepare for their big day (and that camera!)

Alison reveals:

"If you’re due to get married later in the year now is a good time to start planning your skin

preparation for the big day".

Due to the cold weather outside and then coming inside to the warmth of the central heating, your

skin will suffer and be prone to drying out. There are a few steps to help in achieving a healthy

glow again.

Start from within:

Start the day off with a hot water and lemon drink. This not only helps with kick starting your

digestion for the day but vitamin C helps the body to produce collagen which improves your skins

appearance. Slice the lemon and add a dash of cold water before adding hot. This helps to

preserve the vitamin C.

Brighten Up:

I love treating my skin to one of Glamglows masks. They have a variety to choose from. Try the

“ThurstyMud” Treatment for the ultimate hydration. I love using the “Youthmud” which gently

exfoliates your skin, smoothing and brightening in 10 minutes. Glamglow is available from Marks

and Spencer’s, it can be worth waiting for their beauty discount vouchers to stock up.


Often brides decide to grow their hair for their wedding day but hair still needs a regular trim to

keep away those split ends. Also you must consult your hairdresser to get your colour done

perfectly in time for your wedding day. Gradually work on achieving the colour you want, don’t

book in the day before for a head full of highlights if you’re usually a brunette. I’ve seen a few

brides who have decided to add an extra colour to their hair for their wedding day and end up

with hard stripes. It’s best to play it safe to avoid upsets.

Finally try not to have too much alcohol the evening before your big day to avoid puffy eyes and

tired skin!!
