It was all hands on deck (literally) at the recent Brides' brainstorming day, held at the rather fabulous Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Knightsbridge. After a full day spent tearing through issues of the magazine coming up with new ideas, we thought it was time for a little well-deserved light relief and what better way to rest our weary minds than with a gorgeous mini manicure. Amie Ingram, a very talented mobile beauty therapist, did us the honours and came to our meeting room in the hotel. She quickly set up a manicure station, complete with her extensive range of Essie polishes plus their new trend shades and all manner of nail maintenance products. For a room full of girly-girls with a string of Christmas parties to attend, we were in heaven. Amie also does spray tans, eyebrow threading, make-up and lash tinting, plus group discounts - making her an ideal lady to have on speed-dial for hen nights and pre-wedding prep. Prices start from £10 for brow threading and £15 for manicures. Amie is based in Notting Hill and can travel anywhere in London and further upon request. Call 07920 887 884 or email
