What is your most memorable wedding?
Every wedding is memorable to us but the one that stands out in memory is a wedding we attended as suppliers just east of London - The wedding celebration was set in a gigantic estate on private land and had over 300 guests attend. The wedding had a "Fairy Tale" theme to it and the carriage was similar to a Disney Princess.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Glamorous, Sophisticated, Fresh, Modern, Elegant.
What about your business are you most proud of?
Our results and customer service. When we started the Glamour Brides we were adamant that there was a need to answer a gap which had left many brides distressed and upset with "non shows", poor workmanship and excessive fees. We are incredibly proud of our dedication to bring a guaranteed service with transparent features that our clients can rely on and be delighted by.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Be Organised. Try to consider all the options surrounding your wedding as early on as possible - Colours, Themes etc... This will help you decide what elements are important to you. When you know the basis of your theme and style, try to create a schedule and a suppliers list then, make a calendar and work around it to organise when to do what task. Working to a schedule will make the preparation process seems like a beautiful puzzle piecing itself together smoothly.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
We were lucky enough to serve a very warm wedding where the bride had organised for an entire wall on one side of where the guests were eating in the reception room to have a collage of the Bride and Grooms moments.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Consult - Firstly we like to have a conversation with the Bride and discuss what her personal needs, preferences and party size will be. At this stage we already like to see if she has an inspiration or pictures taken from other sources as to better understand what look or style she is keen to create. This helps us assign the most suitable artists for her.
Trial - The second step is for the Bride and her desired party members to attend a hair and makeup trial which takes between 1 to 3 hours and is the opportunity for us to try different looks. At this stage we work to find the most flattering style and create the desired effect.
On the day - The final stage is for us to deliver our services on the wedding day! We arrive early to allow us time to setup our equipment and begin preparing the Bride and her party.
What do you love most about your job?
The feedback and notably the expression on a brides face when we successfully create her ideal look! The happy gasp we receive is the most satisfying reward in our line of work!
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
To maintain that natural and healthy glow make sure to rest plenty, don't skip meals and, definetly do not try any beauty products you are unfamiliar with too near your wedding day!
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
By arriving early, calmly preparing and making relaxed conversation. We work quickly and effectively so that the Bride knows she in good hands and doesn't panic about our duties or if we are fulfilling them.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
We use waterproof long lasting products so you can smile, cry and cheer through out the day without having to worry if your appearance is holding up. If ever you did get overly emotional and need a touch up, use the kits we leave you with to touch up!
