UKAWP member's new service for ultra fashion-conscious brides

We at UKAWP are always stressing how different our member wedding planners are and how their often diverse  talents come to the fore in how they run and grow their wedding planning businesses. Today’s post  is an example of that from boutique consultancy Cranberry Blue Weddings who have recently launched ‘The Fashion Indulgence’.  Director and former fashion buyer Melanie Helen clearly has the interest, talents and contacts to design a very fashion-led service and here is what this new service is all about. It looks fantastic. 

They have teamed up with some of the industry’s most reputable brands to offer a unique, luxury service with a fashion twist. Directed by founder and former fashion buyer Melanie Helen, you and your girlfriends can indulge yourselves for a whole weekend with a personal shopping experience, champagne afternoon tea, professional hair & make-up styling and a photo shoot with some of the top names in the industry.

The experience would begin with a personal shopping trip at either Selfridges or Harvey Nichols, followed by:

  • – A sumptuous champagne afternoon tea
  • – An overnight stay in a boutique hotel
  • – Hair styling by leading bridal hair company The Hepburn Collection
  • – State of the art airbrush makeup, by celebrity makeup artist Mariam Jensen or by the renowned JemmaKidd Professional Team
  • – A location photo shoot with leading photographers Eye Imagine
  • – A private car to the hotel and the photo shoot location
  • – A selection of mounted prints

Melanie would work with you beforehand to discuss different looks and possibilities for the photo shoot, before creating a design concept that includes everything from clothing, accessories, locations and hair and make-up ideas.  It could be for a 1950s theme for example or based around the current fashion trends.

This is perfect for a sophisticated hen party, a gift to the groom or an original take on engagement photos; alternatively it would be a fabulous birthday treat.

Melanie, who has worked for the elite of the fashion world from renowned French designer Roland Mouretto the cream of the high street chains such as Oasis and Arcadia, personally attends to the brides every step of the way. Aided by her in-depth knowledge of the fashion and buying world, Melanie keeps a close eye on the latest trends in the fashion and wedding industry and understands how they can be adapted to suit individuals.

Prices are based on a minimum of 4 people and are from £675 each for the whole weekend.
