The store offers an extensive list of tailor-made treatments to leave you and your bridesmaids looking and feeling thoroughly spoilt in time for the big day. With top to toe treatments including manicures, makeovers, massages, facials and hair-styling, you can combine even them with afternoon tea or a cocktail masterclass.
