It’s said up to 99 per cent of brides enhance their beauty with make-up on their special day, with 76 per cent choosing a professional. But imagine if you could apply that expert touch-up for free!
Northampton beauty salon Beautywithinn is offering just that, with make-up services for your big day as part of a fabulous wedding competition.
The Harlestone Road business is offering one lucky key worker couple a free makeover package with one of its skilled cosmetologists.
The ‘Wedding with Thanks’ competition, which will see a keyworker couple say ‘I do’ next year, has been organised by Delapré Abbey to say thanks to a carer, key or essential worker in Northamptonshire who has gone above and beyond during the coronavirus crisis.
The prize package includes everything for a wedding of your dreams, from wedding rings and stationery to a hair stylist for the bride.
Natalie Faulkner, who has been in the beauty business for more than 20 years, is delighted to take part. She says she has always seen Northamptonians as kind and caring, and it’s great to get the opportunity to give back.
“I love making someone feel and look amazing on their wedding day,” says Natalie, who opened the St James business 10 years ago. “But to spend my time giving back to our keyworkers is even more special. What they have done over lockdown has been incredible and it will be fantastic to say thank you to a special couple. I think I will get quite emotional!”
“I guess you could call us wedding specialists,” adds Natalie. “We have an array of hair stylists, make-up artists and beauty specialists here that can make the bride feel special.
“We’ve been asked to do all styles of make-up, so whether you want a natural look to enhance your features or something a little more dramatic, we can do a full consultation to find out what you like.”
If you’d like to nominate yourself, a friend, colleague, or family member for this incredible competition (one or both of the nominated couple should be a carer, key, or essential worker) go to: www.delapreabbey.org/weddingwiththanks.
