Your Yorkshire Wedding - May/June 2023 (Issue 60)

All the latest from around Yorkshire YOU BEAUTY! Having just opened in April, Beauty in Bloom is an ecohair and beauty salon based in Ilkley. Owned by Charlotte Hawkins, her specialist team of hair stylists and make-up artists continue to make a name for themselves as the bridal hair and make-up people in and around Yorkshire. Aside from over 20 years of experience, their passion for perfection is unrivalled – put simply, they’re the team you want on the morning of your wedding! “When we say ‘yes’ to a wedding we never dream of just sitting and waiting until it’s our moment to make up our brides,” says Charlotte. “We’re on hand to straighten trains, make brews, pop shoes on and everything in between! Because, when it’s your special day, these little gestures make all the difference, and make for a seamless day!” For more info, and to find out what bridal services the salon offers, visit HOT NEW VENUE!

Former candidate on this year’s The Apprentice, Shannon Martin has launched her British-led bridal collection, Nori Ivy, which she originally pitched to Lord Sugar. “While I was grateful for the opportunity to be on the show, I left in week two when I discovered the process wasn’t for me,” she says. “I realised I didn’t need a business partner to make Nori Ivy a success, as I could do it on my own, alongside my amazing team!” Shannon already has two thriving Yorkshire businesses, Dotty Bridal and OffThe-Peg Bridal Outlet, and has been part of the wedding industry for over 10 years. The Nori Ivy collection of 14 gowns is available in sizes 0-30, and features stunning silhouettes, a variety of textures, exquisite fabrics and intricate detailing; all of which are customisable to any bride’s requirements.
