We were really excited to have the BBC camera’s in the salon while they were filming ‘Don’t Tell The Bride’ for BBC3.
We had the bride, Victoria, in to do her eyebrows and nails, she was really pleased with the results and looked absolutely beautiful on her wedding day.
28-year-old Victoria Bilio from Widnes near Liverpool is leaving the most important day of her life in the hands of her fiance, Nick Royle. Seven years ago when Victoria was only 21, she had her first wedding, but it was not the dream day she was hoping for. She hired her wedding dress and had her reception in a hotel conference room she didn’t like. This marriage did not last long, and two years ago she finally met the true love of her life, 27-year-old Nick, who plays top flight rugby league for Widnes Vikings and Warrington Wolves and represents England in rugby Sevens.
But just two months into their relationship Victoria fell ill with a life-threatening condition. She was diagnosed will Guillain-Barré syndrome, an auto-immune disorder that attacks the nervous system. It was a difficult start to their relationship, with three months stuck in hospital, but Nick never left her side. Two years on and Victoria is completely back on her feet, but because of her illness they have not been able to afford a place of their own, and currently live with Nick’s parents.
For Victoria, this is a second chance at life and marriage. So what happens when her rugby-playing groom decides to give her a royal wedding just because his surname is Royle? Can this groom, who is more used to playing rugby on a muddy pitch, really give her the wedding day she deserves?
