Brides gathered together the biggest names in bridal beauty under one roof, including Laura Mercier, Fresh, Design in Scent, GlamGlow, Nars, Bare Minerals, Liz Earle, Foreo, Caudalie, SHOW Beauty, Matthew Curtis, Neal's Yard Remedies, Eylure and Elegant Touch. Readers then joined us to learn insider knowledge and expert tips on how to achieve the dream bridal look. Armed with a map of the stunning Corinthia ballroom and a goody bag packed with wow-worthy beauty products, brides-to-be made their way around stands, where they were pampered to the utmost degree. Relaxing facials, stress-busting neck massages and personalised makeovers were delivered by some of the very best in the business.

In between treatments, guests settled down with a Portobello Road Gin cocktail and an Enchanted Cakes cake pop to listen to beauty talks and live demos from each brand. Experts were interviewed by Brides Beauty Writer, Sophie Cullen, beauty blogger Rose Gallagher and makeup artist Sophie McMullan, and covered all the vital beauty steps that need to be taken in the lead-up to your big day: from skincare and make-up, to hair, nails and fragrance.

This event was not one to be missed - keep your eyes peeled for our 2018 dates!
