Obviously you want to look your best and feel wonderful on your wedding day. To achieve this you need not only to plan, but also to act, ideally at least six months in advance of your big day.
Beauty treatments and fitness should commence as soon as you can. The range of treatments are huge including waxing, facial, teeth whitening and manicure, to name but a few. Timing is especially important when it comes to hair and makeup, and to ensure you look your best on your wedding day, consider a trial well in advance.
There are a whole range of experts to help you including fitness training and hair and beauty specialists. It is unlikely you will be able to cover everything yourself so consult a professional. Whatever you do, don't leave everything until the last minute.
Here’s some great ideas from hair, beauty and fitness businesses based in Essex from places like Colchester, Harlow, Southend, Chelmsford, Grays, Braintree and Clacton, whom you might want to get in touch with...
Don't forget to mention An Essex Wedding magazine when contacting a hair, beauty or fitness professional.

What's more, Anna has had a busy couple of months and is looking forward to the launch of her new academy day in May. She says, "Firstly, I had the pleasure recently of meeting Angel from TV's Escape to the Chateau and styled her hair ready for the Southend date of their book tour. "I have also recently been featured on the Gadget Show, the episode aired Wednesday 23rd March on Channel 5. I visited our Birmingham branch owned by Lynsey Le Keux, which is where filming took place and we product tested hairdryers, with a fun element of styling a quiff on various Elvis impersonators."

One of the UK's leading tattoo artists, Essex-born Alice Nicholls, has launched Four Tattoo Care Balms. These four skin balms were developed out of the idea that she couldn't find any suitable cream, balm or gel that could offer real benefits to newly tattooed or inked skin and that most on offer were functional and didn't have any real feel-good appeal. Wedding photography, and particularly expressing a couples' individuality on their wedding day, has evolved over the last decade with many couples showing off their tattoos on the big day – essential then that they're in the best condition!
