Brides-to-be listen up - there's one crucial name you need to add to your little black book and that's James Read. James has been in the tanning industry for the last nine years (and quite frankly who wants to look washed out in white on their big day?) and his celebrity following is enough to impress any fashionista. Suffice to say the beauty press also adore him and demand has grown so huge for his magical skills that he's now based at the Agua spa at the Sanderson Hotel; though naturally he is willing to do hotel room/home visits for those avoiding the paparazzi.
Each tan he creates is entirely bespoke to you and depends on what look you wish to achieve, but one particularly perfect for brides is his new Mannequin Tan. Inspired by the nude colours that sashayed down the runways for autumn/winter 2010 this tan shade is achieved by applying moisturiser to the body and then two fine layers of self-tan which are expertly sprayed by the lovely James leaving a light, glowing tan.
James is also known for his website The Tantalist which is about the tan look from a fashion eye with key interviews with fashion, beauty editors and celebrities around the world!
