What we will do:
We will create a tailored skin programme for you to ensure you look and feel radiant for the special day!
Your wedding is one of the biggest days of your life, so it goes without saying you want to look and feel your very best. You’ve probably planned your wedding right down to the last detail, but have you taken a moment to think about preparing yourself?
Bridal beauty starts from the inside out, so it’s important to look after your mind, skin and body in the lead up to such a big event.
Pre-wedding prep is all about taking time for self-care, from skincare and exercise right down to your mindset.
Start 6 – 12 Months Before the Wedding
This might sound quite early, but this is actually the perfect time to start making some healthy changes in your regime and daily life to carry right through until the big day. But don’t worry if it’s not 12 months before because 6 months before your wedding is still sufficient… Here’s what you’ll want to start thinking about during the early stages of wedding planning: Treatment, Product & Supplements.
We will ALWAYS provide you with a bespoke plan, so the following is a recommended timeline to give you an idea of when to start what treatment. Everyone has individual requirements, so please come and see us for your tailored wedding plan 🙂
If you’re wanting to achieve that radiant bridal glow, the 6-month mark is when you’ll really want to start getting serious with your skincare. Remember, many skin treatments and products take a few months of consistent use before you start seeing real results!
Here are our recommendations for 6 – 12 months:
The Observ Skin Analysis –

ResurFACE Fractional Laser
Please note: IPL cannot be used on skin that has recently been in the sun or if you are due to go in the sun. We would recommend having your first fractional laser treatment now and then again 4 weeks before the big day. Having one now will not only get your skin glowing but also give you peace of mind and experience the treatment well in advance of the big day. There is 1 week downtime following the treatment so it’s always good to have it sooner and understand how your skin looks and feels immediately after and 4 weeks post-treatment when you see optimum results!
What is it? The award-winning Lynton IPL ResurFACE Laser delivers amazing rejuvenation results! ReSurface can be used to treat a wide range of conditions on the face & body including:
- Acne Scarring
- Skin Rejuvenation
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles
This is one of our most advanced treatments that resurfaces your entire skin improving overall tone and texture that can take years off you. The treatment uses Erbium:Yag Laser to create tiny thermal holes in the skin stimulating a healing process and a deep ‘peel like’ effect. The laser stimulates new collagen production which plumps the skin and improves the elasticity.It’s a solution for sun damage, smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring/scarring reducing enlarged pores and brown spots. It is ideal for those wanting skin rejuvenation and a more even, smoother, healthier and glowing complexion on the face. LEARN MORE.
LipoFirm Body / Face Contouring
We will always offer you a FREE consultation and free trial of the treatment and if you are suitable to have the treatment we will create you a bespoke plan to achieve the aesthetic body/face results you want.
A celebrity favourite treatment that really works & compliments a healthy lifestyle.

DMA & RF breakdown stubborn fat as well as smoothing out cellulite whilst promoting natural collagen production weeks after each treatment.

Colonics are ideal for pre-wedding body & mind prep because you will feel energised, lighter and brighter and less bloated – all the better for slipping into that dress on the big day!
If you do have digestive issues or suffer with IBS and discomfort now is the time to book your consultation. We will then create a bespoke colonic hydrotherapy treatment plan from now until the big day.
What is it?
Colonic Hydrotherapy not only directly clears out 5ft of colon, it also assists in rehydrating the body’s cells creating a healthier environment in your body. Your stomach will be fatter, bloating will be reduced and skin and eyes become brighter. Clients experience a significant reduction of flatulence, a general increase in energy, improved mental clarity and it can also help with immune and weight problems too.
