Bridal beauty: Making you time
The Ned is the perfect retreat for you time

Bridal beauty and wellbeing treatments have been on hold, but with the news of a gradual reopening, The Bridal Beauty Festival’s Sophie Cullen picks out four places guaranteed to pamper and restore your best self

We’ve all had more than enough of home beauty regimes. So the opportunity to book in with an expert over coming months is just what we need to take our minds off wedmin and the toils and travails of planning a wedding. Here, The Bridal Beauty Festival’s beauty guru Sophie Cullen suggests four places that would definitely be top of her beauty and wellness treatment list.

Feel stress melt away… a massage is the ultimate beauty treat

The Spa

Wedmin getting the better of you? Book into The Ned for a signature CBD massage using MariPharm’s essential oil which has the topical benefits of the cannabis plant. This treatment helps alleviate pain and uses heated Thai compressors to relax the muscles –plus it means 60-minutes’ head space where you don’t need to worry about the table plan (£110).  The Ned also offers a whole-body experience to help you unwind, and relax, using a bespoke combination of selected sleep oils through tension-relieving back stretches, facial massage followed by a deep cleanse. Bliss! De Mamiel Sleep series treatment, 30 minutes for £90;

Hair saviours

Also on the must-do list, Liquid Gold (otherwise known as the Holy Grail of hair) has arrived at Neville Hair & Beauty in Belgravia.  This innovative and safe Brazilian Keratin treatment is designed to change messy hair into straight, soft and shiny hair. This chemical-free treatment creates stronger frizz free locks in just one treatment. From £250;

Facial bliss

In need, of a break from seating plans and spreadsheets? Book yourself in for the Liz Earle Signature Facial for 90 minutes of calm bliss. The non-invasive treatment takes a hands-on approach (literally!) plus enjoy a neck and shoulder massage and your choice of a scalp, foot or an additional shoulder massage. £120;

Feet first

Something to think about when booking your bridal mani/pedi  – will you be going on your honeymoon straight afterwards? If so, perhaps you’ll want to try a pop of colour, maybe a vibrant red or rich coral? To make sure your feet are in good condition, Margaret Dabbs says: “Get regular pedicure appointments booked well in advance of the big day. You should really be looking at a 12-week schedule to get feet in tip top condition”. Book in for a regular session at Margaret Dabbs and I promise you will leave feeling like you are walking on air, with feet which look brand new. Medical Pedicure, £85;
