Relax and Unwind before your big day

Your wedding will be the most beautiful day of your life, so you’ll want to look stunning from head to toe. That’s why it’s vital to take time out to relax and look after yourself in the weeks leading up to your wedding, and Rookery Retreat and Spa is the perfect place for brides to spoil themselves before the big day.

As the latest addition to one of Somerset’s top wedding venues, this luxurious new spa is set in the award-winning grounds of 16th century Rookery Manor in Edingworth, near Weston-super-Mare. It uses only the naturalist skin care range, Temple Spa – one of the most exclusive brands in the UK.

The superb facilities are complemented by a fantastic choice of holistic and beauty therapies, including Signature treatments specially designed for brides, the happy couple, mums and daughters – and, of course, hen parties.

Every full or half day Signature treatment includes a healthy lunch with fresh juice and lighter diet options if required. All bridal packages featured here also offer full use of the hydrotherapy pool, wave loungers, hot tub and the new Japanese spa garden:

Beautiful Bride Full day – £285.00 per person

This is great for the day before the big event. Your therapist will begin by softening your skin with a body exfoliation, followed by a hydrating body envelopment. Next, enjoy a calming aromatherapy facial and brightening eye treatment with eyebrow shape and eyelash tint. Finish off with a manicure and pedicure, so you look the part from top to toe – and why not take along your mum or best friend, so you can enjoy the day together?

The Happy Couple Full day – £485.00 per couple

Perfect for you and your beloved or best mate. To begin the unwinding process, you will soak in a fabulous hydrotherapy pool to relax the mind and body. After this, you will be treated to a wonderful Turkish body exfoliation – just perfect before a full body massage of your choice and one of the spa’s 60-minute facials. Then finish off with a gorgeous manicure and pedicure. What better way to spend the day?

Mother and Daughter Full day – £480.00 for two

Your day begins with a glass of champagne and time to relax in the hydrotherapy pool. Then get things started with a luxurious body exfoliation and relaxing massage. To soothe away lines and even out skin tone, your face will benefit from a fabulous Champagne & Truffles deluxe facial – a true celebration for the skin. Finally, your hands will be treated to a beautiful spa manicure. From top to toe, you will both look and feel amazing.

Girls’ Day Out Full day – £165.00 per person

Perfect for gossiping with the girls or getting ready for a big night out. Your day begins with an Outer Glow body exfoliation to soften the skin and improve circulation. Your mind and body will then be soothed with a relaxing Repose aromatherapy facial, incorporating anti-inflammatory ingredients to calm and unwind. Hands and feet are not forgotten either – with a file and polish for those finishing touches.
