If you've ever been a part of a brides wedding day morning, typically it's a group of women getting together in their silk robes or matching pyjamas, playing some girly ballads whilst cracking open a bottle of fizz, sharing stories and stepping into their dresses just 30 minutes before the wedding ceremony.
A couple of years ago I was asked to do a Mother of the Grooms makeup at the grooms house where the groom and his best man and ushers were all getting ready and wow what a different experience this was!
They were suited and booted mega early, the tunes were NOT romantic, 12pm felt more like 12am with the music pumping so LOUD and the guys knocking back the Jack Daniels.
Doing up the ties was a struggle (YouTube windsor knot - just so ya know) and no-one was quite sure where the button holes (flowers) went (FYI left lapel pointing upwards, ladies on the right pointing downwards) so it was quite an amusing eye opener at how different a grooms wedding morning can be compared to a brides!
I'm sure not every grooms wedding morning is like this, however it got us thinking more about the morning from a guys perspective.
We're more frequently being asked if we can sort out the barnet and boatrace of the groom and his ushers. So for 2023 we are excited to announce we are offering a hair grooming, styling and makeup service for the guys as well.
Whether it's your barnet or beard that needs grooming, help disguising those under eye circles from the sleepless nights worrying about delivering that speech or perhaps some translucent powder to fend off the shine (summer weddings can be hot!) we are offering a tailored service to suit you!
All of our quotes are prepared bespoke so whether you're after couples pre-wedding pampering such as his and hers facials and massages (our friends at HB Lounge can help) or on the day pampering, just drop us a message to let us know what your requirements are and we will do our best to make the run up to your wedding morning as stress free, organised and relaxed as possible!
