"When it comes to facials it's really important that if you haven’t been doing them, not to rush into them. A random facial with a random person and random products is never the way to go. You really want to start a few months out and build a relationship with the person so that your skin is blemish free on the big day."
"If you have facial phobia at least use a great exfoliant. Once again start including this in your routine a few months out in case you experience irritation."
"I am a big fan of Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Cleanser. It’s a great one for cleansing and keeping your skin looking bright."
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Cleanser $55 from Mecca.
"I have two tips here. You want your skin feeling plump, full and glowing.
"One of my favourites is Darphin Ideal Resource Cream, which is super calming and one of the nicest moisturisers on the market."
Darphin Ideal Resource Cream, $94 at Mecca.
"A slightly cheekier tip is using a sun-tinted moisturiser with spf 50. The protection is great but it really makes your skin glow."
Sunsense daily invisible tint spf 50+, $14.95 at Priceline.
"A manicure is really important for all of those ring photographs but don’t forget the pedicure. You’re going something warm for your honeymoon right?"
"My only other advice is to have breath mints on hand. There’s nothing worse than a stale Champagne kiss. Nothing."
