Hair and Beauty

Hairstylists, make-up artists and beauticians are an essential part of any wedding day to ensure that you are looking your most radiant and beautiful.

Hair Styling

Although there are no absolute rules when choosing a hairstyle for your wedding, your ‘total bridal look’ needs to be taken into consideration as everything should balance. For example if your gown is simple/formal/traditional/funky etc, your hair should match in style. Ultimately though it will depend on your personal preference and should reflect your personality and your own personal style.

Other things to take into consideration are whether you will be wearing a veil, a tiara, or flowers in your hair, as well as whether your ceremony will be held during the day or night, inside or outside and how long you need the style to last. All of these things will have an impact to some extent on the most suitable hairstyle for your wedding day.


Wedding makeup should enhance your looks not cover them up. On your wedding day you still want to look like you, but at your most radiant and beautiful. Choose a make-up ‘look’ that complements your overall bridal ‘look’ – whether that be romantic, modern, classic or whatever. Colours should complement your wedding gown and other wedding theme colours. Ultimately though, as with choosing a hairstyle for your wedding, the makeup style you choose will depend on your preferences and own personal style.

Other things to take into consideration are whether your ceremony will be held during the day or at night and whether the ceremony and/or photos will be held inside or outside as lighting needs to be taken into consideration when applying make-up.

Nail Treatments

Without a doubt every guest at your wedding will ask to see your ring and in doing so will notice the condition of your hands and nails. Your hands and nails will also be captured forever in your wedding photos and video. With this in mind it is vitally important that on your wedding day your hands and nails look just as gorgeous as your ring! And if you are planning a summer wedding your feet will also be on show to everyone, especially in sandals or barefoot on the beach.

There is a huge variety of nail treatment services available these days from luxurious manicures and marine inspired pedicures, sculpted acrylic nails and organic overlays right through to incredible wedding nail art where each of your nails are individually painted by a skilled nail technician.

To ensure your hands, feet and nails are in tip top shape for your big day you should consider having a manicure and/or pedicure the day before your wedding and if you intend having natural nails for your wedding, manicures should ideally be performed weekly 4-8 weeks prior to your wedding day.
