Wedding Morning Dress Reveal.

"The most beautiful thing that you can show people is how to reveal their own beauty to themselves" debasish Mridha

Your Wedding day has finally arrived!. Admidst the excitment of a hectic morning your filled with excitment, your bridesmaids and immediate family are attending to their last little pieces of preparation. Your creative team has arrived and we are in full swing with haridressers busy along with MUA with music playing and champagne flowing, while you try nervoulsy to eat a little breakfast. It really is the height of excitement.

With only a few hours till you are ready to depart for your wedding ceremony. It is now time to be professionally dressed for one of the most exciting walks of your life. Your Wedding dress reveal is an opportunity to halt time in which to compose, breathe & capture this lasting memory forever. We light your Wedding fragrance candle & now the protocol of silence begins once we enter your dressing room.

Your dress reveal is much more than simply putting your gown on for your Wedding Day.

It begins the night before, when i come to your wedding venue and we talk about your accessories and their meaning to you and how they are to be worn. I then go and prepare your room in which you will be dressed the following morning. No other person will have access to the "Preparation Room" until you next walk into the room on your Wedding day. I ensure everything is organised in detail. Everything you need including your gown and veil and headpiece checking buttons and zips. I will box your jewellery, shoes your something borrowed, your fragrance etc so nothing gets overlooked or left to the last minute and will ease any concerns you may have about preparations the following morning.

On the morning itself my assistant will be on hand to help your family and Wedding party with any questions they may have. When your hair and make up has been done, then, only you and I (and then later the photographer) are in your room for twenty minutes. This may be the most valuable part of your morning preparation. Your preparation room is now your calm haven with beautiful background music and everything ready that you need. With your Wedding jewellery iin place you will step into your shoes and i spritz your bodys pulse points with your Wedding fragrance then with a beautifully soft body brush, I gently sweep your fragrance onto your body using relaxing, soft strokes, which send the frangrant notes over the body and as you walk the aisle your guests enjoy your beautiful Wedding scent. This has a calming effect, slows your heart rate, gives you peace and allows your mind to focus just on this moment. There is no rushing, no panic,no words just stillness and gentleness with a background of calming music. Before handling your dress, I place on my white cotton gloves (new for every bride) and then help you into your Wedding gown, ensuring it sits perfectly and correctly. One bride loved this process so much that later, once the day was over and thenight had finished she wrote and said "Thank you so much, for my dress reveal moment" you gave me serenity at precisely a time that I needed it and yet in that moment I didn't know it. Only afterwards did it becombe plain to see why this piece of mindfulness helped me so much, and for that i will always be so grateful to you. All of a sudden I was calm, compossed and felt so elegantly dressed. I just new I could face the aisle without panic or trying to adjust my dress or veil as you had everything placed correctly and comfortably. It was so beautiful and one of the pieces of my Wedding Day"

Now you are ready to be revealed to your loved ones, I place the photographer behind you face the preparation door, my assistant gathers the wedding party and your loved ones and the 2nd photographer is placed behind them ready for your re-action, the photographer captures their re-actions and expressions of love and pride. A photo to last forever.
