The weather was absolutely scorching too which made for a beautiful day in a stunning location, surrounding by the best people!
The UC Team are some of the best people I have ever met and made us all feel so welcome. I’m so over the moon to have met them all as well as the talented creators I had the honour of attending with!
The food was incredible with delights such as a buffet style afternoon tea and the most AMAZING cocktail sausages I have ever eaten. I don’t know how they did it but I’m pretty sure no others will ever compare now for the rest of my life.
From giant garden games to constantly flowing peach inspired cocktails, the team thought of absolutely everything and I feel so lucky to have been invited. What an absolute dream come true it was to be surrounded by some of the most talented creators in the business!
On your wedding day, you should look like yourself at your most beautiful.
Future brides and beauty fanatics come at me!
Have you heard of The Bridal Beauty Festival? If you’ve followed me for a while then you’ll know they were a recent discovery for me but boy was I excited.
Having initially thrown caution to the wind and ordered The Honeymoon Edit (which I reviewed HERE) a collection of beauty essentials designed to make you really feel pampered beyond belief before, during and after your wedding day, deciding to attend The Bridal Beauty Festival was a no brainer!
With two sessions (morning or afternoon) to choose from, brands galore and the most INSANE goodie bag (which I’ll be posting about over on my Instagram tomorrow) it surpassed even my wildest dreams.
Ticket prices varied depending on if you decided to go VIP or not (but with a goodie bag worth £150 up for grabs with the purchase of a VIP ticket how could you not? I was also kindly given 50% off so if I hadn’t made up my mind before that well and truly did it).
Taking place at none other than The Dorchester Hotel it really was luxury vibes all round.
The decor was something spectacular, the amount of effort that went into creating an atmosphere that was so breathtakingly beautiful (ethereal even!) is something I don’t think I’ll ever get over.
Every single person I was lucky enough to talk to was so helpful. Offering advice and ideas for my own big day. I dragged my sister along with me (who fell in love just as hard as I did!) and it was the ideal outing for us as a pair…which brings me on to my next point!
The Bridal Beauty Festival will be back! I don’t know the specifics yet but I’ll be sure to keep you all updated when I do.
Not only were you given the freedom to explore the festival at your own pace you could also grab yourself a seat and take in not one but four separate masterclasses/demonstrations from various brands.
From Charlotte Tilbury and Sunday Riley to Face Gym and Benefit there really was something for everyone.
My favourite being one held by the amazing Amanda Bell on behalf of Pixi Beauty (and you know how I feel about them!) to create this stunning bridal look that really is the embodiment of looking yourself but better.
As a content creator/blogger it was incredibly important to me to use this opportunity as a chance to connect personally with brands on a separate level too and one I had the pleasure of doing that with was Lipcote (who I have adored for over half my life, did you know that they have been up and running for 70 years now?!).
They absolutely made my day. Stopping to chat and discuss the brand without making me feel like I was a burden.
That to me is a sign of a brand who understands and values their customers and it was so refreshing to see.
It was the perfect way to celebrate finally booking my wedding. The ultimate indulgence in all things bridal and beauty with the perfect mix of businesses and brands to really help you on your way to feeling your best on your big day. I wish I could relive it all again.
