Add some glitz and glamour to your wedding

Add some glitz and glamour to your wedding

Hen Party

If we’re honest, learner plates, an inflatable ‘husband-to-be’ and pole dancing classes have all been done to death. But thinking of new ideas can often feel like an impossible task. To make any occasion sparkle like no other, try adult face painting classes to give the extra sparkle that will make your night truly memorable and the pictures look great!

Glitter isn’t only for girls

No matter your age or gender, everyone can rock glitter. It’s important not to forget that the wedding day isn’t just about the bride, the groom should also be centre of attention! Glitter beards are bang on trend and will put your groom in the spotlight throughout the reception.  

Alternative entertainment

If magicians and live bands are too mainstream for you, transform your guests into enchanting fairies, fierce tigers, and mystical mermaids using glitter. Our professional face and body painting experts can create looks that will give your guests memories that will last long after the glitter has been washed off.

A touch of sparkle

Glitter is fun, versatile and easy to use, so why not add it to other elements of the reception? Try adding glitter to your bouquet, shoes or even cocktail glasses as a simple way to show your guests that this isn’t your run of the mill wedding.  

Unique Bridesmaid

Your bridesmaids are likely to be going the extra mile to make your wedding day as special as possible for you, so it’s nice to return the favour. Even if the dresses are all simple and matching for the ceremony, why not give them a sparkle make over in time for the reception. This will be a great way to say thank you for their help on the run up to the wedding. Plus it allows each bridesmaid the chance to show off their individual style!

Night Time Makeover

Some brides change into a different dress for the reception, which, isn’t always in everyone’s budget. However, brides can create a stunning nigh time look using glitter – either some face paint, or if they’re feeling more adventurous a glitter cape is a perfect addition to a wedding dress.
