Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend
That I can’t deny
But there’s one best friend I must defend
For she can be quite shy

She deserves our praise for her clever ways
How she illuminates our day
And conceals our darkest secrets
Highlighting our forte

Her compliments are radiant
She can often make us blush
She shows us how to make an entrance
Feeling Feminine, Glamorous, Lush

There is no end to our flawless friend
And we must recognise
How her timeless classic friendship
Adds sparkle to our Sultry, Smokey Eyes

Our perfect friend can easily blend
And contour our emotions and mind
But who is this mate who transforms our state?
Leaving our cares behind

She makes us Our Most Beautiful
From Blushing Bride to WAG
Glamorous, Natural, Sophisticated
Her name is Makeup Bag!

Miss Makeup Bag will hold your hand
From first date to the races
School Proms, Weddings, Hen Parties

The Greatest Flight of Your Lives...

“Fly me to the moon, let me sing among those stars; let me see what spring is like on Jupiter and Mars, in other words…”

In other words: Picture this. You’ve said your ‘I do’s’, glowed and smiled as you walked up the aisle arm-in-arm, and kissed under a shower of freeze dried confetti. A uniformed captain greets you at the door and escorts you to your chartered luxury helicopter flight, ready to whisk you off to your reception, to party the day away. Only happens in the movies, right?

Wrong! Adding a special touch of a bespoke helicopter flight to your wedding day is easy with Helicentre

“Helicentre is based at Liverpool John Lennon Airport and Caernarfon Airport, and also provides regular helicopter services at Manchester Barton Airport. At Helicentre we have been involved in aviation for over 15 year. We provide commercial and private helicopter training as well as charter, surveying, helicopter sales and management.  This makes Helicentre the leading training provider in the North West.

Our wedding day packages start from as little as £639.  We can take the couple to the ceremony, and after the ceremony, to the reception. If the wedding and reception are at the same place we can take the bride and groom on a pleasure flight around the area. We don’t just depart from Liverpool Airport, we can also collect the Bride or Groom from a private landing site, be it their back garden a nearby field or a local golf course. Many hotels and stately homes allow us to land so there is not normally and issue with the landing sites. We can also land at the church if there is a suitable landing site, and we can get the land owner’s permission. Every wedding is unique and different so we can tailor it to whatever the client requests”.

And it doesn’t just stop there! How about a romantic VIP Helicopter Lunch & Spa Package, perfect for a proposal or thank you to your loved one?

“Treat yourself and others to the ultimate VIP helicopter lunch and spa package at Carden Park Golf Course and Luxury Spa. Whether you would like to have a special meal and relax and get pampered in the luxury spa, a helicopter is the ultimate way to travel.
Departing from the business aviation centre at Liverpool Airport the helicopter will fly towards the Cheshire plains. En-route you will view historic land marks from the air such as Eaton Hall, Cholmondley Castle, Peckforton Castle and Beeston Castle. After arriving at Carden Park the helicopter will wait for you to return. This is a fantastic VIP helicopter experience. Whether it is relaxing with friends, a romantic dinner or even a proposal in style, this will defiantly not be forgotten!

When this package is bought you will have the helicopter and commercial pilot under you own private charter. Price is for helicopter charter only.

There are a maximum of three passenger seats available for the flight.

In the Press: Trash or Cherish Photoshoot

Dawn Collinson of The Liverpool Echo talks to the wedding planner who is offering women the chance to Trash or Cherish their bridal gown on a stunning photoshoot

"FOR most women, it’s the most expensive item of clothing they will ever buy. But after their big day the vast majority of wedding dresses are cleaned and either sold or packed away, destined never to see the light of day again.

Unless, of course, they’re given one final stylish fling.

That is the aim of wedding planner Helen Burns  and photographer Zoe Richards 

They have teamed up to bring their own twist on the American trend Trash The Dress, where brides get to wear their gown one last time and generally disrespect it.

Helen and Zoe wanted to give brides an opportunity to wear their beloved dress in an unusual setting – but not destroy it.

So they came up with the idea of Trash or Cherish where women get to decide just how daring they want to be with their location and treatment of the gown.

Helen, who launched Bespoken Dreams wedding consultancy in April, first approached Zoe when she was writing her own bridal blog.

“This was something I wanted to do before I set up the business,” she explains. “Zoe was already doing Gown Again, which is similar, so she suggested doing it together.

“Once I started doing wedding research for Bespoken Dreams I noticed that the trend, which originated in America, was really catching on over here. There have already been quite a few brides in London and other parts of the country doing it, so why not here?

“It’s really just another evolution of wedding photography which is fun.”

The basic idea is to photograph a bride after her wedding in a different scenario, often deliberately unbefitting the elegance of the dress.

“That might be an urban environment or a beach or woodland,” explains Helen, who lives in Allerton.

“Zoe and I have discussed quite a few locations which we think would be good. She is based in the Georgian Quarter, so that would be perfect for a fashion backdrop, but there’s also lots of back alleyways around there which would make much more of a contrast. Liverpool city centre is full of great urban locations and then there’s the sand dunes in Formby or Ruff Wood in Ormskirk.

“It’s basically like the Trash the Dress trend, but it’s not quite as extreme so the dress isn’t ruined beyond redemption.”

Helen says brides love the opportunity to have another special day in their cherished gown, without the formality or pressure that can be involved in a wedding.

“After a wedding, most brides either get their dress cleaned and then sell it or they box it away. This gives them another chance to enjoy it and have a photoshoot where they’re probably more at ease. It’s a kind of goodbye, after the honeymoon is over, and an alternative to sending the dress to Coventry in the depths of a dusty loft!

“It gives couples something to look forward to as well after all the excitement of their wedding has died down, which can be an anti-climax. Some men do get involved in the photoshoots, although mostly it’s for women.”

As part of the photographic package, Helen and Zoe include hair and make-up by Sian and Robyn at So Coco Rouge in Liverpool city centre.

“Again, a lot of women have quite a formal look for their actual wedding day, so this is a chance for them to try something different and maybe be a bit more fashiony. It’s really up to the bride to decide how she wants to look and how quirky she wants to be.

“That stretches to what she wears with her dress too – quite often they’re teamed with mud and wellies!”
