About Me

sarah reece wedding

Welcome to

Congratulations! I’m assuming that because you’ve found me you’re getting married! Enjoy every moment of craziness that’s now coming your way until the wedding.

I’m here to help you stress-less about your bridal look. Think of this website as your little “white” book – it’s bursting with hair ideas, make-up tips, skincare plans and figure fixers to help ensure you look your most beautiful on the big day.

A little about me: I’ve been a beauty editor for donkeys. My first job was on more! magazine (where my job description included styling the male centrefolds as well as overseeing the beauty pages. A hard life eh? No pun intended…) I then grew up and went gorgeously glossy on New Woman before landing a dream job writing the beauty sections for both Cosmo Bride and You & Your Wedding. As well as these full-time roles, I’ve also dipped my OPI’d toes into the freelance world of newspapers, mens, gossip and beauty trade magazines.

So apart from the fact that I love all things beauty, the reason I’ve launched is because I adored my own wedding whirl last year. Writing this site means I get to play bride-to-be forever!

Within my posts I try to include as many of the beauty experts I’ve been lucky to meet during my magazine years.¬†Hair pros, make-up artists, derms, perfumers and personal trianers (and how I wished I followed the latter’s advice more before I got hitched!)

I really hope you love this site as much as I love putting it together.

PR samples
Being sent a jiffy bag stuffed with samples to try from PRs will always be exciting (I’m a beauty junkie after all) but it’s not new for me. As an ex-magazine beauty editor, this has been a regular (happy) occurrence for over 20 years and just because I’ve been sent a freebie doesn’t automatically get a mention on the site. Please be assured that any product credited on this website – or through my social media channels – is there for one reason only; because I love it and I would/do use it myself. That said, please do try in-store before you buy or ask for samples (particularly skincare) as what suits my skin/hair/body might not be a match in bridal skin/hair/body heaven for you. I haven’t been paid to mention anything, however having said that…

Sponsored posts
Whilst I’m still working as a freelance beauty writer, of course I’d love this website to be commercially successful too, if only to recoup the fees I have to shell out to keep it running. If I do accept a paid-for-post a. it will say so and b. I believe that it’s relevant to brides-to-be and would use it myself. I think long and hard about every branded opportunity that comes up.

Affiliate links
There’s not really a lot of scope within this website for affiliate links as I’m so choosy about the products I recommend. However, should you find one, it’s a happy coincidence and is genuinely a product I love.

Messages and comments
I really hope you enjoy what you read/see at If you have any questions, please leave a comment on the relevant post and I’ll try and answer you as soon as I can. My heart leaps every time I see a new comment – it definitely keeps me motivated.
