Royal Wedding Fever
14 May 2018
We LOVE a wedding at Ye Olde Bell - from helping couples prepare for the big day to sharing in all the magic and happiness - nothing beats it.
As thoughts turn to the upcoming royal wedding we couldn’t resist thinking of ways we could get involved in the celebrations –funny it seems our invite must have got lost in the post!!
We’ve created bespoke pamper sessions, which you don’t need to be a royal or a future bride to enjoy and all are invited to our grandiose ball being held on the same day as the big wedding, 19 May.
Firstly though, all eyes will be on the blushing brideMeghan Markle and we understand that every woman wants to look and feel special on their big day. So we asked our Spa Director and Beauty expert extraordinaire, Lizzie Bath, for her top beauty tips.
She said stress, lack of sleep and dehydration can play havoc with your skin. I always tell my clients to try and relax. Easier said than done but if you feel calm - you will glow inside and out. Drink plenty of water, keep hydrated and try and get as much sleep as you can, it will all help!
In the salon there are lots of things we can do to help our brides look their best or create that special ‘wow’ look for people who just want an injection of glamour.
Brows frame the face and I’d recommend trying HD Brows to give you the best effect. To make sure the face looks fresh I’d suggest ourO2 facial focus and then for the body a gem exfoliation like our Lady Jane Priceless Gem treatment to buff up skin and leave it looking flawless.
I always suggest having a make up trial before the big day, so you’re completely happy with the look. Some brides so like doing their own makeup, but in my experience you have so much to worry about and could be nervous so it’s nice to know you’re in safe hands with a professional who can create the perfect look. We use Delilah cosmetics and their star halo pure light liquid radiance illuminating product really gives a natural glow.
Now the bride is taken care of the party can start!!
For those after a royal knees up we’re hosting Ye OldeBell Black Tie Ball on 19 May, which includes Fizz on the Garden Terrace, 4-course dinner, live band and disco! It’s priced at £47pp or table of 10 at £450. Stay over from £99 per room and for total relaxation enjoy 'stay, breakfast and spa' for £175 per couple.
