The Calm Before the Magic – Your Bridal Prep @ The Oakhouse Hotel


It’s perfect.

The sun is shining across the medieval square of Axbridge, the birds are chirping quietly, sweetly in the background, behind the chatter of the bridal party and the odd ‘pop’ of a champagne bottle.

You close your eyes as a soft brush glides forwards and backwards over your eyelids, dusting them with iridescent powder that makes your eyes gleam, wide and bright. Simultaneously, a brush is gently, delicately pulling your hair in to an effortlessly gorgeous up-do, the diamond hair pin catching a sun ray for a moment and reflecting rainbow patterns against the window.

It’s not really a surprise to us that our brides consider the morning ‘bridal prep’ for their wedding, a highlight of their day. The excitement builds in your stomach, yet you feel serene, calm and pampered.  

With its separate dressing area with Louis style furniture, slipper bath in the bedroom and beautiful views across the square, our Junior Suite at the Oakhouse could not be better suited to host you and your bridesmaids on the morning of your wedding.

For those few hours it is just you and your closest friends and family, enjoying the comfort of your surroundings and letting your suppliers and venue do what they do best. All the planning, midnight to do lists, budgeting and the dreaded table plan are done, this is it and your day is here.

Today everyone will be looking at you and smiling. You will be celebrating love and embarking on one of life’s most wonderful adventures. We’d be honoured to be a part of it.
