I'm so excited about our gorgeous new website... it's the ultimate online destination for every modern bride-to-be.

I've been at Brides for four years now, two of which were spent planning my own wedding, so I know exactly what you're all going through. The pressures, the scheduling, the spread sheeting, and the fury that erupts if anything comes between you and your wedding vision (well, they didn't coin the term Bridezilla for nothing!). Amidst all the madness, it's so easy to forget about looking after yourself so my regular beauty blogs will ensure your skin, make-up, hair, nails and body care are at the forefront of your busy minds.

I'll be showing you how to achieve silky hair, spot-free skin and a glowing tan, and how to find your all-important hairdresser and make-up artist for the big day. Or, if you're a dab hand with an eye pencil and thinking of doing your own wedding make-up (like I did!), I'll be sharing my very best tips and tricks that I've collected over the years, and bringing you expert secrets straight from the pros.

In the meantime, if you have a beauty question or dilemma, or if you've tried a product that's so fab (or bad) you need to tell other brides, email me at beauty@bridesmagazine.co.uk.
