From the all-important walk down the aisle to your first dance, there’s a whole lot of planning that goes into your wedding. Whilst we can’t help with your canapés or where to seat your great aunt, we can help you get to grips with a bridal beauty routine. Say ‘I do’ to our To Have & To Hold Limited Edition box. With this special edit of Big Day must-haves you’ll be well on your way to achieving that coveted lit-from-within glow – and bouncy hair to rival a certain future Duchess!

Lumene Invisible Illumination Watercolour Blush in Pink Blossom

WHAT A must-have for all blushing brides, this weightless liquid blush is a natural way to achieve a rosy glow without looking too flushed. Formulated using pure Arctic spring water and antioxidant-rich cloudberry, it works to hydrate and brighten your skin while delivering a pop of petal pink to cheeks.
HOW Give the bottle a good shake and dispense a few drops into your hand. Dot onto the apples of your cheeks and then blend with your fingertips or a sponge. Layer it up if you want more pigmentation.

Paul & Joe Illuminating Foundation Primer

WHAT Whilst you’re sure to be glowing from the inside out on your Big Day, an extra boost of radiance is always welcome. This primer is packed with light-reflecting lavender pearls, to illuminate and plump your skin while keeping your make-up in place for longer. Bonus: SPF 20 protects against UV rays, too!
HOW Smooth one pump onto clean, moisturised skin before applying your foundation.

Sarah Chapman Skinesis Overnight Facial

WHAT Adding a face oil to your pre-wedding routine is a skincare game-changer. This luxurious serum oil mimics the brightening effects of Sarah Chapman’s world-renowned facials – and all while you snooze! You’ll awaken to rejuvenated skin thanks to a dose of antioxidants and collagen-boosting technology.
HOW Massage one or two pumps into clean skin every night before bed.

Darphin Lumière Essentielle Illuminating Micellar Cleanser

WHAT Brimming with an array of illuminating essential oils (including rose, orange and sandalwood) this cleanser rejuvenates dull skin in the AM, melts away make-up in the PM, and sweeps away impurities with every use. Transforming from gel-to-oil-to-milk, it works beautifully on all skin types.
HOW Massage onto dry skin, adding water to emulsify. Rinse away and say hello to that glow!

ORIGINS Drink Up™ Intensive Overnight Mask

WHAT Sleep might be hard to come by in the run up to your wedding day but this luscious treatment makes bedtime as productive as it is essential! Infused with botanical oils, the rich formula gets to work repairing and hydrating skin during the night for a super-soft, luminous complexion come morning.
HOW Apply an even layer over clean skin at bedtime. Tissue off any excess then hit the sack.

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer

WHAT You can thank Audrey Hepburn for this iconic product! Formulated after she visited Philip Kingsley’s clinic with hair concerns, it’s the world’s first pre-shampoo conditioning treatment. It restores manageability, bounce and shine and visibly reduces breakage for shiny strands to rival the A-list.
HOW Dampen your hair with water, apply to mid-lengths and ends then cover with a shower cap or towel. Leave for at least 10 minutes then rinse clean and follow with shampoo and conditioner as normal.

Oribe Dry Texturising Spray

WHAT The ultimate quick-fix product, this spritz gives lacklustre strands an instant dose of volume. Plus, you’re in good company – Meghan Markle herself uses this to give her hair a little extra bounce! Part-dry shampoo, part-texturiser, its unique formula soaks up oil and adds just the right amount of texture.
HOW Spray generously towards your roots then give your hair a quick tousle. Style as desired.

Floral Street Wonderland Peony Eau de Parfum

WHAT When it comes to triggering memories and evoking emotions, scent is one of your most powerful senses. Which is why it makes sense to opt for a new perfume for your special day! This sophisticated floral one contains a bouquet of fresh peony, sweet violet and fruity raspberry flower that you will love.
HOW Spritz onto your wrists and behind your ears. Top tip: resist rubbing your wrists together as you’ll alter the scent.
