Five fabulous wedding treatments to get you relaxed…

ESPA Holistic Total Body Care

This all-encompassing treatment is designed to bring harmony to both mind and body – one of the best wedding treatments for a busy bride-to-be. The 80-minute session includes full body skin brushing and exfoliation, stimulating circulation and improving the appearance of the skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. A body and scalp massage follows using ESPA pre-blended aromatherapy oils on vital energy points for pure relaxation and revitalisation.

ESPA Deep Cleansing and Relaxing Back Treatment

The back is a hard-to-reach area and often neglected, but treatments of this type will ensure every inch of the bride is glowing on her big day.  The back is deep cleansed, body brushed and exfoliated stimulating circulation and cell renewal, then calmed and relaxed with a luxurious aromatherapy massage. To finish, an application of a light moisturising balm ensures the skin is left soft, smooth and revitalised.

ESPA Skin Brightening Facial

This advanced facial expertly rejuvenates skin that may be left dull, lifeless or sallow from stress and lack of sleep. Treatments are about 50 minutes long, and includes a special application of Skin Brightener, rich in natural AHAs and BHAs from Hawaiian Algae and Meadowsweet. Plus other skin regenerating products rich in anti-oxidants, which are skin softening, smoothing, and visibly improve the radiance, appearance and texture of the skin.

It’s not just the bride’s face that gets photographed on the big day, there are plenty of close-ups of her new wedding ring bling! This luxury treatment uses Jessica’s exclusive Le Remedi products and leaves hands feeling smoother, firmer and younger-looking. It includes cleansing and exfoliation of the hands followed by a mask and hand renewing liposomes.

Clarins Detox Wrap

This indulgent treatment refreshes and recharges, while giving a more svelte and refined appearance to the body. A personalised blend of warmed clay and stimulating aromatic oils is massaged over the skin to help eliminate toxins, reduce water retention and boost circulation and lymph flow. The body is enveloped in a foil wrap to intensify the effect of the deep-cleansing, detoxifying ingredients, while a scalp and foot massage helps release tension. This is perfect either just before the wedding or afterwards in preparation for the honeymoon.
